At around the 4 minute mark he starts talking about the only way Seattle will get their Supersonics back is if another franchise moves to Seattle. He then lists possible teams that could choose to relocate there in the future. . .  “Teams like the Bucks, the Grizzlies, the Charlotte Bobcats…soon to be Hornets again”.

 

 

Not sure how to take that since I would doubt Jordan would ever move the team, but he appears to have let it slip that the name change was indeed happening.

If we rebrand back to the Hornets, no way MJ is going to move the team.
Tough luck to Seattle.

Good to hear, but discussing us as a potential candidate to move is really stupid...  Don't we have some extremely harsh penalties if the team tries to leave in its first 25 years?

The NBA culture in charlotte is going to dramatically change once were the Hornets again, relocation won't be an issue...for a long while at least.

I still don't understand why the hell Sac-Town got to keep the Kings...how many f'n teams does California need?

As bad as we have been the last two years, 5-7 teams had worse attendance. If you can be this bad and still draw more fans than a half-dozen teams, there's no need to worry about relocating.

I'd like to see the Hornets brand return, and if it did, I think relocation would be out of the question. 

 

Not sure which team will end up relocating there, but hopefully it isn't us. Hate to see us lose our team again.

I will burn my bobcats shirts with pleasure, and dig out my hornets shirts (yes I saved them).  Please let this happen.

I can't see the Grizzlies moving. They sell out almost every game.
