Bobcats jerseys at Hornets games?

Recommended Posts

I was a Bobcats season ticket holder in 2010 when I lived in Charlotte.  I absolutely loved that team and have an authentic, autographed Tyson Chandler white Bobcats jersey.

I haven’t been to a Hornets game in a couple years... is it socially acceptable to wear Bobcats gear to a Hornets game?  Other teams do throwbacks, but I know the re-branding was a clean slate move.

Thoughts?

I still see Bobcats stuff at games. Its basically proof you aren't a new fan, which is a good thing I would think.

It’s a really funny how I got the jersey, actually.

Me and some friends were bored one Saturday before that 2010 season, and we went to the team store to try and buy authentic jerseys because we were psyched about having season tickets and all that.

Of course, the Bobcats team store didn’t have anything like that for sale.  We were irritated but nobody stopped us when we walked up the steps from the store into the main concourse in TWC Arena.  

Once up there, we saw none other than MJ himself (and what appeared to be a large bodyguard of sorts) walking away from us.  My friend (who was a bit of an ass) yelled “Hey Jordan!” (I was extremely embarrassed)

”How come we can pay tons of money on season tickets but we can’t even buy real jerseys?”

Jordan didn’t say anything to us but he said a couple words to the bid dude.  The big dude walked up to my friend and told him to come with him.  Next thing I know, Robbie (the friend) comes around the corner and has 3 authentic, autographed jerseys.  Apparently the dude had them in a cardboard box and said “I better not see these on eBay.”

Still have mine after 8 years.

Great story!

Wear it.  It's the logical thing to do, this is the Bobcats franchise.
