Default Bobcats will probably be renamed Hornets

Probably is more of an overstatement right now, but with Benson changing the name of the Hornets that leaves that name up for grabs.

That would be nice. But that would be at least the 2015 season before it happened.

Eh Im thinking they can get it done before then no matter what Bonnell says. I was reading somewhere, where it only took a year for the Bullets to be renamed to the Wizards.

Benson is so hell bent on getting New Orleans renamed they will probably get renamed faster than people think. Im hoping the same thing happens with Charlotte.

People forget that Charlotte abandoned the Hornets their last 3 seasons, and those were playoff years. Having the name back would be nice but unless we improve, dramatically, it won't matter. If we were a 50-win team people wouldn't care if we were the Charlotte Taliban.

People abandoned the Hornets because it was a lame duck franchise with an owner that was almost hell bent on moving elsewhere while also letting Johnson and Mourning leave because he didn't want to pay them market value.

There is a reason why Stern promised Charlotte a new team almost immediately after the Hornets bolted for New Orleans, and thats because George Shinn was a bastard.
