Any idea where it came from?

 

I really hope this isn't what they're looking to use.

looks more like the old WNBA Charlotte Sting logos than the Hornets... Do not want... bring back the old Hugo logo 100%... don't cut any F'in corners... I want the old logo, old pin stripe uni's, and I want the old hornet crowd meter back in the arena that lights up and has the neon dribbling Hugo logo to reward the crowd for getting loud and proud.

 

and while I am a little heated... if we substitute Carolina Blue for Teal in the new color scheme, I will only be purchasing Hornets gear circa 2002.

It's okay, but I'm tired of these "futuristic" looking logos (for lack of a better term)

 

What's wrong with the classic logo/color scheme, with only minor, minor tweaks?

Does anyone expect the logo to look anywhere close to the old Hornets logo? For that matter even the jersey's? 

 

If you expect the same logo, your being silly. It's why I thought the Hornets thing was silly to begin with. The jersey's are going to be completely different, the colors are going to be updated and changed as well. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just imagine the Bobcats' current colors altered just a bit. Dark purple and teal mixed with the dark blue, gray and orange. That color change was done for a reason. lol 

 

 

So I wouldn't be surprised if they went with something more updated and edgier for the new logo, just don't expect the old pinstripes teal and bright purple to be completely back.

Still would rather have the original but I found this concept for the new logo and I think it stays pretty true to the original with a more modern look.

I do not think anything is set in stone and I do not think that it is far-fetched to think that they will try to return to original logos and/or color schemes.

 

You don't invest in research teams and studies that conclude the name change will be desirable and profitbable in the city, make the announcement public to get everyone pumped, and then decide to bring back a modified version of what everyone wants. 

 

I expect there to be subtle differences with the new Hornets brand as they come back, and I understand that you will never be able to match the atmospehere of the old Charlotte coliseum due to the sheer size in comparison with TWC arena, but to think that they decided to make this change and completely overhaul the old Hornet image is "silly"

Yep, it sure is. MJ never said he was going to use the old Hornets colors. He hasn't made up his mind on to use them or not, but I expect them not to use them or they will slightly incorporate them into the current colors. Like replacing the current blue with a closer to teal shade.

Not really, they've set out to redesign the logo and uniforms. MJ has said he hasn't decided to use the old colors or not. BTW, they are seriously outdated now. It's much more likely that the new logo is completely redone and that the colors are modernized then to think they use seriously outdated colors and just slight tweaks to an already really old logo.  Btw, I don't like the logo in the OP. I just don't expect the same colors or logo. I've never expected the old logo even with just slight tweaks. I've never expected the old colors either. 

 

 

I mean check out the back drop behind MJ in the press release or the Back the Buzz site, it's got the current colors mixed in there. 

 

The blue on the back the buzz part of the Bobcats site is a different shade. (it's the blue from the bobcats logo, btw)

 

 

Everything they've shown so far indicates them changing the colors, even MJ said they wouldn't go full out with the colors and logo.

 

 

 

At the same time, the new Hornets can't appear to be a simple copy of the earlier incarnation. As Jordan noted, some teal and purple lettering does not mean the franchise will adopt the same look, and that would be a mistake. This management team needs to create something that can work in the future, not just a cute bit of nostalgia.

The colors need to be the same as the original.

 

I don't mind the logo being updated some, but that concept isn't very good. It looks like a WNBA logo.

In an interview after the press conference "As I posted above" MJ stated that using the same look of the old Hornets, using the same colors for a bit of cute nostalgia is a mistake. The new uniforms, logo and colors need to work for the future as well. Also said not to expect that based on some lettering and outlines behind him in the press conference. 

 

 

He basically calls the Hornet colors outdated and fans wanting Cute, and Nostalgic uniforms silly, but not in a mean way. lol
