    Jordan Open to Charlotte Hornets

    Michael Jordan said he's open to reverting the team back to the Charlotte Hornets. And Tom Benson, who bought the Hornets earlier this year, said he'd like to change the New Orleans Hornets' name and colors.
    I for one think this would be great. If you're talking about a positive image change, than it's the logical move. The Charlotte Hornets have a decent image, unlike the completely soiled name of the Bobcats. If New Orleans wants to oblige, then why not?

    Why did the chicken cross the basketball court?
    Because he heard the refs were blowing fowls.

    New Orleans should be the Jazz, Charlotte should go back to the Hornets, and Utah should be the ones finding themselves a new name, IMO.

    well it NEVER made any sense to move the hornets to N.O and the next year giving charlotte a new team.


    it should have been expansion team to N.O .


    And hell yes i want the name hornets back to where it belongs.

    I don't know that New Orleans should change names with the Charlotte Bobcats, but changing the name in New Orleans would not be out of question. I always loved the Charlotte Hornets logo.

    The team-name hornets comes from the Militia regiment of the state during the Revolutionary War that was such a nuisance to the British that their general declared them a bunch of "hornets".

    Truly awesome name that incoporates the history of the area, they should give it back.

    Changing Utah's name is out of the question. Utah has had that name for decades. There is a history attached to that name in Utah.

    N.O., if they don't like their current name, but Utah should not be expected to cough up their name for the expansion team. Hell, NO already got the gift of the first overall pick handed to the new owner.

    I have no problem with Charlotte going back to the Hornets if NO wants to change their name, but I don't have a problem with the name Bobcats either. If the team was winning there wouldnt be a negative conotation to that name.


    As to why the league moved a team from Charlotte and then gave that city a second expansion team, I'll never know. There was an ownership group on Charlotte obviously that wanted the team. An expansion team should have been offered to NO. That fawked up.

    Anyways, no reason why the Utah Jazz should have to cough up their name.

    Because he heard the refs were blowing fowls.

    I spoiled that... sorry... I just felt bad for that side of the poll getting zero votes, but I honestly don't care either way
