Default Hornets to be renamed the Charlotte Hornets

Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan is changing his team's name to the Hornets, said a person familiar with the situation.

The person said Jordan will detail the timetable for the change to be completed at a press conference the Bobcats have scheduled today. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the name change has not been publicly announced.

Just got an email from the Bobcats saying if I go ahead and commit to season tickets for 2014-15 I'll get a free Jordan Brand Hornets warm-up jacket.

the buzz city one? those are nice

so what do you charlotteans think of the renaming? i picked this team when they were the bobcats so clearly the name wasn't an issue for me...but i'd be lying if i said "charlotte hornets" didn't sound infinitely better. it just fits.

I'll be sorry to lose the Bobcats name. But then I'm a newcomer and wasn't here when the team was named the Hornets so I don't have the nostalgia.

I need to see if I can find my old starter jacket up in the attic.

I really didn't care about the name change. I hated the 2 years that we didn't have an NBA team when the Hornets left so I swore I would support any team in town. That being said, if it brings in more fans it'll be a good thing.
