Name Change Getting Closer

Just as I said back in December (Click Here), the Charlotte Bobcats will bring the Hornets name back to the city. Now that the Hornets have become the Pelicans, they have a chance to bring the popular name back. They won’t be able to do it for another 18 months, but Michael Jordan thinks that they should be ready for the new name by the start of the 2014 season.

The Charlotte Hornets logo is still quite popular on gear today. No one really wears Bobcats stuff, and why would you. Maybe this will make them improve.. but lets be honest, it won’t. At least they will look good and maybe bring some more fans to the arena. They can’t get any worse.

Changing Names

Reports say that the New Orleans Hornets will soon be known as the Pelicans. Yeah, you heard it right, they are going from a semi-intimidating name, to the least intimidating name in all of sports. No one is going to want to play here, and no one will want to buy their gear. They are also looking into changing colors to red, gold, and navy blue.

On a related note, Michael Jordan said he would entertain the idea of returning the Hornets name to Charlotte, since it was very popular back in the day. Many people today still wear the old teal and purple Hornets gear. This could be a big brand change for the Bobcats in a big way.
