    Possible Hornets name return? (New Orleans to officially become Pelicans on Thursday)

    http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/87...cording-report

    Well, now that that's out of the way, let the speculation continue...

    Also, if you want, NBA go ahead and rename the title "Possible Hornets name return?" Or something like that.

    Wouldn't want to confuse any of the geniuses on PSD.

    Like Homestarunner said, WE WANT IT BACK. Jordan will win alot of fans if he gets the name back. Any news on when the earliest it would be we can get the name back?

    Hornets become Pelicans Thursday, putting ball in Bobcats' court on nickname. There would be deliberate market research before any change.

    Bobcats couldn't do real market research until Benson officially relinquishes nickname. This isn't going to be a flick-the-lights decision.

    So New Orleans will become the Pelicans next year? That seems fast

    We'll see what their research suggests. But I honestly can't see how the research wouldn't significantly favor a change in the name. I know for me personally I don't own any Bobcats gear, but if we change it to the Hornets I'll buy some gear real quick.

    Get it done!

    This must happen. Bill Voth said on twitter that Charlotte would only have to pay $3 million to get the name back. That is a pittance. The Hornets brand is infinitely more popular, and I think pretty obviously would sell much better than Bobcats gear.

    On top of that, Charlotte has sent out surveys to season ticket holders about the issue. Should be interesting.

    Bring back the hornets please. I still get sad thinking of the goodbye video played on tv after there last game. I enjoy the Bobcats but i think this would be the beginning of a much needed culture change.
