Charlotte's love affair with the Hornets ended a long time ago. Very few people care about the NBA anymore.

Not true, the hornets name alone has brought back a lot of excitement for Charlotte.

Very little. And see if that translates into ticket sales. Charlotte is all about the Panthers. I had season tickets the entire time the Hornets were here. But I don't care about the NBA anymore and neither do any of my friends who used to support the Hornets.

Not bashing...just stating the facts. Times have changed.

Yeah, I think it is nice Charlotte is getting their team name back...but honestly, if the NBA folded tomorrow- I would not care at all. That whole sport and league is kind of dead to me.

It's become And-1 style and no longer enjoyable to watch, plus it has ruined college basketball in the process and...in turn, turned the whole sport of basketball into crap in the US.

This is coming from someone who watched a LOT as a youth.

From your perspective maybe so but you can't speak for an entire city.

Don't understand the haters in this thread. The Hornets were beloved in Charlotte. They were my childhood, and the city is thrilled with the name change.

Also, anyone who thinks the city only has eyes for the Panthers doesn't know North Carolina. It's a basketball state and if you give it good basketball the people will come.

Also new management is in place and, I believe, making some pretty strong moves.

I think Ray Allen might have been there for a year or two, and you are right it is Glenn Robinson.

It felt like we played them every year we were in the playoffs and got knocked out by them.

Charlotte had some good players during the time period I am referencing, such as David Wesley, PJ Brown, Jamal Mashburn, Robert "tractor" Traylor, Baron Davis.

You're right...NC is a basketball state...college basketball.

Jordan is big reason people don't like the Bobcats.

The name change is an act of desperation to be honest. It will draw some excitement short term, but that's it.

Over time people will be a lot more interested in the Hornets. Charlotte loved that team and the Hive was arguably the NBA's loudest homecourt in the 90's.

Jordan will spend for a winner, but he's not going to spend for a team he knows will be bad.
