I find it rather humorous, but if it results in increased ticket and merchandise sales then more power to them. Like I said it doesn't change my point of view as a fan.
When you hear people talk on sports radio around here the way they romanticize the Hornets years is pretty funny. You would think that the Hornets won multiple championships by the way they talk. In reality the Hornets were never anything but a slightly above average team that would occasionally advance to the 2nd round of the playoffs.
What's the use of changing the name of the product if the product does not change. True I'll follow the team no matter what but if money is going to be spent at all shouldn't it be spent to improve the team?
btw, RufusPaul--I sent you a private message. Should I delete it?
