Default Charlotte Hornets are back

Quote:



The Charlotte Bobcats are in the process of changing their name back to "Hornets," a source with knowledge of the situation told CBSSports.com's Will Brinson, including arranging digital assets that would allow a return to their original nickname.

There is no timetable for the switch though NBA commissioner to be Adam Silver told Bobcats season ticket holders in April that such a change would take at least 18 months to implement. Moreover, the change is not unexpected and would likely be popular with the North Carolina fan base.

I approve.
But 18 months is a long time. Did the Pelicans have to wait that long too?

Nice. MJ probably put in the request to make NO change their name so Charlotte could get the Hornets back

The NBA is f**ked. Utah should be the Bobcats. New Orleans should be the Jazz and Charlotte should be the Hornets.

It's not the NBA's fault. Utah is dead set against giving up the Jazz name so the league and New Orleans ownership did the next best thing and got a different name that represents the region.

And Charlotte will be the Hornets again according to the article.

Yes. Benson asked for the name change as soon as he bought the team which was in March of 2012. They'll officially be the Pelicans in November of 2013.

Charlotte is starting the process now and will be the Hornets in November of 2014.

ya i dont get that either, with new orleans changing there name within a few months and jordan has to wait 18 months to change to the hornets

another thing thats pretty interesting, is within 18 months they could have parker or wiggins on there team

that would be exciting change back to the hornets, and they get a 1st star prospect in the draft, sellouts for jordan and jerseys sales

mugsey bogues, grandmama and alonzo mourning, for some reason i want to say dell curry to i think he was hornet all have to be smiling now

They have to wait for New Orleans to officially give up the name and a change can't happen after the draft. a couple months is a small window to get all the legal, merchandise and logo details all settled.

They'll have it done by this time next year. 18 months is the start of the 2014-15 season.

Thankfully some good news. But what should've happened: New Orleans Jazz (as it was originally), Charlotte Hornets (as they were originally) and Utah Bobcats (Bobcats in mountainous regions I guess).
