It's essentially the same thing they did in New Orleans. The only difference is no one knew exactly what they'd settled on until January, so it might've seemed like the wait between Hornets and Pelicans was shorter. The reality is that the two timelines (assuming the 'Cats act quickly) are pretty much mirror images of one another.


It seems like Benson kept his under the radar though, albeit the N.O. Pelicans aren't as intriguing as the Charlotte Hornets.

Does this mean we finally bring Kobe home when he is amnestied by the Lakers?

I am all for this if it drives sales, ups attendance and invigorates the city. Otherwise, I just want to win.

Saw Charlotte Observer on FB saying that the convo for the rebranding Hornets is heating up. And the new MJ retro clothing apparel in hornets colors is making me think it'll really happen.

I don't see how they could play a full bobcat season knowing it was their last. No one would buy one piece of merchandise.


This guy would.

Would be great for the city and the franchise if this were to happen. I literally have never seen someone wearing Bobcats apparel, but I see people wearing old school Hornets stuff all the time. Now for the product on the field....well when you've hit rock bottom the only way to go is up :)

I will be one of the first in line for a new Charlotte Hornets teal and purple jersey. Now just to decide who to get? Custom #23 Jordan? or support the players on the court with an MKG or Kemba? Or I know! how about a custom #1 Hugo jersey?

Can't wait to see how you explain how you love the team more now and identify with them more now that the name has been whitewashed. And how the organization is better and different because the team wears an effeminate color scheme. LOL.

Is it supposed to be difficult to explain how I identify more closely with a team that I loved growing up and I went to hundreds of games for? Purple and Gold could be seen as an feminine color scheme, I am pretty sure that worked out well for the Lakers now didn't it?

Purple & Gold is more masculine than a purple and teal bumblebee. The Lakers are 20 times the historic franchise than the Charlotte/New Orleans/Oklahoma City Hornets, so bad analogy anyway. Some of us are stuck in our "second childhood", some of us look to the future. I loved kindergarten, it was one of the most memorable times in my childhood and will be with me forever. Difference is, I don't want to go back though. To each his own.

If liking the idea of the Charlotte Hornets makes you effeminate and racist...Well, put a dress on me and call me Hitler.

Anything to distract us from not winning I guess. Thats least important, making sure Charlotte stays stuck in the past, boring, and unimaginative is priority number one. Maybe we can rename the Panthers the Hornets too, use the exact same color scheme and name since its too hard to come up with something new.
