Rights to the Hornets Brand?

16 posts in this topic

I guess my point is, if Jordan and his team has no rights to the Hornets brand... how are they allowed to sell merchandise featuring ex-players and logos? Unless any team can technically sell any merchandise from any other team at their official store? Possibly.

You probably need an attorney to decipher all of that. But as I understand it we now own the rights to the Hornets name and Benson relinquished that when he changed names.

But to answer your question, I don't really know. I mean as far as I know we don't own the rights to the Cougars but we have used their throwback jerseys from time to time.

Otherwise, Gerald Wallace is the Charlotte Hornets' all-time leading scorer and the Hornets' all-time playoff record is 0-4.

It is a difficult situation and definitely new ground. I know when the Supersonics moved to Oklahoma City they took all the records Conference Championships with them and that when Seattle was trying to get a new team essentially everything would stay in Seattle. But this is a little different because we are getting our original team back. I honestly can't see why NOLA would want to keep any of that because they are trying to essentially start a new franchise. I could only see NOLA putting up a fight if the Hornets had won a championship.

I bring this article back up, because it looks like Charlotte wants its Phill's jersey back and if they land it - maybe - the attendance banner? Like others have said, what good does this stuff do New Orleans. I could cross over plays or cross over stats, but guys who only played in Charlotte and attendance records only set there. Who cares?

All of it is ours that happened from 88-02 and I hope the jersey and banner go back up and I think the jersey will for sure.
