Homeboy can do whatever he wants on this board and that is a fact.

Here is another fact: the only thing standing in the way of a Hornets rebrand now is Jordan.


I don't believe he can do anything... I'm almost 100% racism (no matter your skin pigment) is tolerated on this forum.

If New Orleans gets to lay claim to Zo, LJ, Mugs etc... then I'm laying claim to CP3.

Yes. The entire franchise relocated. All records and accomplishments of the Hornets are held by the Pelicans franchise.

My 2 cents. I LOATHE the Bobcats name and brand. God you dont realize how awkward it is to wear Bobcats gear and either A. People seeing it and acting like they just saw a UFO or B. people asking, "what team gear are you wearing?" I cant take it! I hate the name, logo, colors and everything.

Gerald Wallace is the all-time leading scorer in Charlotte Hornets history, as soon as the name change is announced. Assuming it is announced.

I'm only 17, so my childhood wasnt spent at Hornets games. I don't know how great it truly was unfortunately. I want the Hornets name back just because it's proven to gain more fans and the colors are so much better and the name also simply sounds better. But will I lose any sleep if they say they won't be changing the name? Nope. I love the Bobcats and went to 7 games this year, they were 6-1 when I was in attendance.

And I guarantee you these people saying they've never been to a Bobcats game but would get season tickets if they were the Hornets would also come out if the BOBCATS were playing in the Eastern Conference Finals.

So I'd like the Hornets back, but it's not a big deal to me. I just want a winning NBA team in Charlotte.

i dont give a poo about jordan.. best thing he could do is sell the team and go hang out at his shitty restaurant in the casino in CT.

Charlotte hornets, owned by someone else.. sounds good to me.

I really don't know why there is so much Jordan hate. I really do think their is a misconception about a lack of desire to win on his part. He told us in essence, that we we're going to be bad for a few years because of cap creation and clearing bad contracts. He hired a good GM, and now we're getting ready to have a ton of cap room this year. The Bobcats are going to be a lot better starting next year, then more so, the year after. I know Jordan isn't perfect, and he has had to learn as an owner and all that, but I consider creating a ton of cap space and bringing the Hornets back at the same time a brilliant move. As dumb as it sounds I do believe names have a stigma that impact performance. If I'm an NBA free agent, and I get offered from the Celtics.. I would do more to prepare in anyway I could for a team that carries that kind of tradition. Good player aren't motivated to play for the Bobcats, but they would be more motivated to play for the Charlotte Hornets.

Agreed, and you even left out that we have been stockpiling future 1st round draft picks as well, while we cleared space and got rid of bad contracts.

It is an immediate results world and MJ is an easy target, but he has us pointed in the right direction and kudos to him for not getting impatient and trying to build this the right way.

I don't really doubt Jordan's desire to win. Yeah, there have been reports of a laid back approach to team ownership in the past, but some of that's subject to interpretation. And anyone who has worked with him or been around him says he's super competitive in whatever he does.

His ability to craft a winning team from a management standpoint though? That can rightly be scrutinized.
