i was going to say after seeing the title, doesnt Charlotte already have a team? but this makes more sense, did new orleans change there name or are the nba taking a page from the cfl and going to have to hornets teams?

thats what i would want, if only for the sake of confusion

That's cool. I like the 90s hornet look. If the pelicans color scheme isn't the same they should use the old logo and colors.

now lets corss fingers tha tthey recover ALL the things from their first seaosn, uniforms and logo.


The only pity is the horrible name New Orleans has chosen.

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS Bobcats while i loved them, never really fit right. The State loves the Hornets name, and it will finally have it back

The new uniforms didn't exactly improve the team, maybe changing the name will make a significant difference... oh no wait, that's not how it works.

Much rather play for the Hornets than Bobcats, it's much easier to tell your family.

Always loved those old Teal/White Charlotte Hornets jerseys so cool, great color scheme...I hope this goes through. Only jersey I liked better were the Vancouver Grizzlies...that Geen/Blue color was so cool.

Weren't the Charlotte Hornets jerseys a big seller too?

Now New Orleans should change their name back to Jazz. Massive confusion.

Nets (very generic name, not very inspiring)
Wizards (come on now lol....granted they were the bullets but still)
Magic

just a few...

At least the Pelicans are the State Bird and have some connection to the area. Cant say that about many of the teams. Hell, If I remember correctly the Thunder were mocked quite a bit...

and the memory of the Bobcats will be happily forgotten, the 'Bobcats' only had 1 playoff appearance and year after year were the worst team in the league. Hopefully the changing of the name brings relevancy back to the Charlotte franchise and they can become a good team.

I'm absolutely excited for this. Been a Hornets fan for roughly 20 years. To make this worth the change, we must see the old school uniforms return. Nothing new!!! It would mean so much more to see those uniforms from the 90's again.:D

Lakers are god awful, Thunder is bad, Clippers are bad, KNicks are bad, Bucks arent good, Magic is bad, Wizards is bad

Great move by Charlotte. The BOBCATS are synonymous with losers nowadays so a rebranding will do wonders for the team.

Being from a different country, as a kid I chose the hornets as my team and have followed them right through to new Orleans. Now what do I do? Support the team that has become the pelicans, or support the name like I use to?

Magic makes sense seeing Orlando has Magic Kingdom, so that's where we get the name.
