those colors basically are the colors they had last year 

 

 

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.

I think it looks feminine, not a fan.

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"

 

 

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 BTW, they are seriously outdated now.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more likely that the new logo is completely redone and that the colors are modernized then to think they use seriously outdated colors and just slight tweaks to an already really old logo.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

Yeah, that Hornet looks delicate, fragile, and effeminate and the teal and purple needs to be incorporated.  If they want to add the carolina blue as trim, fine, but not a primary.

I most definitely think that purple and teal will be incorporated. It may just be used as an outline or as secondary colors, maybe even one of them being the main color. I just don't think both are going to be primary colors, I think it will be a mix of the current Bobcats colors with the purple and teal added in. I'm just basing these off of MJ's nostalgia comments calling the old colors cute. lol

Yeah that's garbage and as far as mj not using the same colors. That makes no sense. Why would u not wanna bring back the highest selling attire in it's hay day. There's no point to bringing that to charlotte if that's how it's gonna look. But it's his team. He can eff it up all he wants. We know what we get when he's in control

Not feeling any of that in the OP at all, WNBA crap.

Give the logo a tasteful update not a full overhaul, and if they don't atleast incorporate the old colors then this was all a waste. By making the decision to go back to the Hornets they have to go all in. I hope they get this right..
