Said trying to engage the community since he bought the team, and we wanted the name change so here it is.  The community asked for it, so we did it.

Said we have to apply for it, then goes to the board of governors.  It's a process.

Pete Guelli says it's the first step in a long process.

 

Once the board of governors vote on it in June, the process will speed up.

Asked about screen behind MJ, and if the colors mean anything...  Said it's too early to get into all of that because they have to be respectful of the process.

MJ said once NO gave up the name, "the energy began to mount." 

 

MJ has repeatedly referenced part of the inspiration behind getting the name back was the energy and support that fans gave Charlotte back when he would come here to play against the Hornets as a player.

Once the name change takes place the team wouldn't own the rights to the Bobcats anymore, so we don't have to worry about those being throwbacks. lol

Guelli said they may reach out to those involved in the process of getting the name back once the measure passes the board of governors vote in reference to the "Bring Back the Buzz" guys who requested that question be asked.
