Great to hear. I hate the current colors and loved the original.

I can't be more happy. Now I can't wait to see what will the logo look like and the uniforms as well. This is the best thing Jordan has done with the team.

Here is the official email from the Bobcats.
As a loyal fan, I wanted you to be among the first to know that we have made the very important decision to bring back purple and teal as our primary colors next year when we become the Charlotte Hornets. It was incredibly important to us that we recognize and acknowledge the heritage of the original Hornets during this process, and clearly the colors are a big part of that.
Purple and teal are colors that did and continue to resonate with our fans. As we did when deciding on the name change, we surveyed our fans and partners about the colors and a vast majority were in favor of purple and teal. The data we collected supported the anecdotal evidence we had and made it clear to us that this was the right decision to make.
Along with purple and teal, the accent colors will be black, cool gray and light blue. We believe these colors will update and augment the color palette and bring it forward to the present.
The color palette is the first step in the overall rebranding process. The next step will be the formal unveiling of the logo. Additional aspects that will come next summer include the unveiling of the court design, uniforms, mascot and more. Each of these items is in the process of being designed and determined and we look forward to sharing them with you at the appropriate times.
In addition to the colors, we have already begun looking at additional ways to honor the history of the original Hornets. We will have one game each month that will be designated as a Buzz City Night. These nights will include appearances by former Hornets players and Buzz City- and Hornets-themed giveaways and promotions. The first Buzz City Night will take place on Saturday, Dec. 21, when we host the Utah Jazz.
As always, thank you for your support, and thank you for helping us bring the buzz back to the Queen City.

Well that's disappointing....lol
Still a chance that they use the Black, light grey and light blue more or that the alts look nice.

Dissappointing ?! Not so much..

Yea, disappointing because the colors are out dated. I was hoping that they would go with something more modern and not 80's. So I'm hoping that the black and gray are more prominent.

I take it that you're not a fan of of nostalgia?
Just curious and not trying to be a smart ass, but do you think purple and gold are outdated?

I'm not a fan of nostalgia at all. I don't think teal and purple work together like they did in the 80's and early 90's. So I think for the jersey to work the main color has to be purple, teal has to take a backseat while the black, gray and light blue become more prominent.
I'd prefer to get rid of the purple and teal.
Gold and purple, I'm not a big fan of either but it's a lot better then purple and teal.
