Bronson does credit a source with knowledge of the situation.

But still don't want to put the cart before the horse

Growing up a kid in the 90s, I was a Bulls fan for obvious reasons.  After Charlotte lost its franchise, and then the joke that is the Bobcats happened, I've essentially been without a favorite team for the last 10 years or so.  I became more of a fan of players than anything, but now that the Hornets may be coming back?  Looks like I may have someone to fully cheer for again.

Wow, you just described me to a tee when it comes to the NBA.  Just became a fan of players after the Hornets left and could never really give a fug about the Bobcats... I loved the Hornets though when I was younger (and a Jordan fan, being a kid growing up in the 90s it was hard not to love some Jordan/Bulls... exactly like you said).

Yeah if this weren't true I think MJ/Cho/Higgins one would have came out and denied it by now.

I still don't quite understand why someone would support the Hornets, but refuse to support the Bobcats. It's still our local team. I mean, I definitely do want the Hornets back, and would probably buy more Hornets merchandise (only have a few Bobcat things), but that's only because I like the color scheme a lot more. I'll always support my local teams.

    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

      Sent using the amazing CarolinaHuddle mobile app

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
