If it's not going to be the Hornets again, just leave it be.  I bought my first piece of Bobcats apparel this season.

I think Normmm was probably right all along, we'll be really good next year.

I disgree. I think it's time for a name change. I am a big Bobcat fan, but I do think the team needs an overall image change, not just in Charlotte but around the league. Some things must be done in order to put fans in the stands and I think an image change would be one of these.

I hoping Jordan is successful.

The Flight to pay tribute to "Air" Jordan

If we ever have a baseball team in the Carolinas' it will need to be called the Carolina Barbeque. I refuse to attend a game if it is named anything else.

You buy the Sean May jersey? Saw them at Marshall's for like $5. McD should start including them in kids meals. I know, old joke.
 
 
I'm all for a name change.  Would be awesome if you could change your name after years of sucking haha.   Lots of teams should try it. Start fresh haha.  Team's history should start with his "air-ness" at the helm. Greatest ball player of his time.

So change the name (Bobcats) because it was named after the owner, to the Flight, named after the new owner?

I'm saying we have to change the school to the Hornets and the NBA can have the 49ers.

We should be thinking of a new name for the team in New Orleans, not Charlotte.  Then we could just get the Hornets back.

If we rename the team the Flight we can use a Hornet as a mascot since they have wings....

Nice!  Jordan should change the name to the 'Charlotte Wife-Swappers' and start making phone calls to execute the three way trade.


Minnesota Lakers, Golden State 49ers, Los Angeles Warriors, Tulsa Timberwolves, Charlotte Hurricanes?

Charlotte Air Jordans is my pick.
 
Of course with $30 Million cash calls we could be the Charlotte Over Leveraged or Charlotte Tax Credit.
 
I'll take back the Charlotte Hornets.  Or the Charlotte Sr. 49ers.
