The Charlotte Bobcats might be short on history, but they could revive the city's basketball past.

CBSSports.com reported Friday that the Bobcats are actively trying to change the franchise's name back to the Hornets. Charlotte's franchise bore the Hornets moniker for 14 seasons (1988-2002) until the team was moved to New Orleans.

Silver told season ticket holders re-acquiring the name "Hornets" would not be an issue, stating that the NBA and not the Pelicans owned the moniker. Acquiring and rearranging the necessary digital assets would be a major part of any change.

 

Hornets.com and CharlotteHornets.com are owned by NBA Media Ventures, LLC and currently redirect to NBA.com/Pelicans.

However, a WhoIs.net search for the domain name NBAHornets.com shows that the URL was created and registered very recently -- on May 15, 2013 to be exact -- by NBA Media Ventures, LLC.

 

NBA Media Ventures, LLC, is the media branch of the NBA and owns NBA.com, Hornets.com and CharlotteHornets.com.

Great news. Calling that franchise the Bobcats (named after their first owner, not the animal) was a terrible decision. Hopefully they can bring back some of those classic jersey schemes but I doubt it. The new wave of jerseys for teams seems to be content with just copying the same crappy design over and over (like the Kings, Wolves, Hawks, etc.).

Not to be a douche, but I thought we weren't allowed to post full articles or even that much more than about 25%. Also, the source is named, but a link not posted, not sure if there's rules on that or not.

Whoops, you're right. That's my fault.

 

Good catch.

Lmao, in about 10 years they are gonna have a fun fact on ESPN. The Charlotte Hornets became the New Orleans Hornets. While the new Charlotte team was the Bobcats. The New Orleans Hornets became the Pelicans while the Bobcats became the Hornets. Wooo! Kobe was drafted by the New Orleans Pelicans instead of the Charlotte Hornets!!!!!!!!! Lol

I think Jordan just wants to change the name to the Hornets, with the hope that Anthony Davis and Vasquez will show up at the wrong training camp.

:laughing:

They should changed the owner instead of the name cus Jordan suck at owning anything.  He should take Magic Johnson classes in terms of business management. 


MDA is an offensive genius. I hope he sticks to his guns and keeps doing what he does best: Run and Gun. That's the only way to coach.
