The NBA has approved the name of the Charlotte Bobcats to the Charlotte Hornets.

The Bobcats were named after the franchise's first owner Robert Johnson.

The New Orleans Pelicans abandoned the name, Hornets, this season.

The name change will take effect for the 14-15 season.

Via ****** Staff Report



Starting in the 2014-2015 season.

So are the new Charlotte Hornets going to keep the history of the old Charlotte/New Orleans Hornets? Or will they take on the Bobcats old history?

I like it. The name holds tradition in Charlotte. Fresh start for them.

I could be wrong, but it was my understanding that we are only getting the logo back, the Pelicans still own all of the Hornets stats and history. So Pelicans will have the hornets history, and the Charlotte hornets will only have the bobcats stats and history.

Should restore some respectability (however slight) to the franchise.

This belongs in the basketball forum. Unlike the crazy amount of troll and homer posts this is great news.

Yes. Franchises always keep their lineage, so the Pelicans will retain the history of the old Charlotte Hornets (Zo, Glen Rice, LJ, etc)

I just hope we get to retire Bobby Phills' jersey, and have Dell Curry's 6th man of the year. Also our attendance records. There is no reason New Orleans should hold the sell out streak that happened here.
