Charlotte Bobcats Name Change May Bring Back Hornets

The Charlotte Bobcats name change options being considered by owner Michael Jordan include the choice to change back to the Charlotte Hornets.

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the potential Charlotte Bobcats name change to Hornets is not the only major change happening for this basketball team. The Charlotte Bobcats recently fired coach Mike Dunlap.

The Charlotte Bobcats were called the Charlotte Hornets from 1998 through 2002. But then owner George Shinn moved the team franchise to New Orleans, prompting a Hornets name change.

With the New Orleans Hornets electing to rename themselves the New Orleans Pelicans this opens up the possibility of a Charlotte Bobcats name change back to Hornets. The Charlotte Hornets is certainly a more memorable name since the team went to the playoffs seven times while the Bobcats only once.

Perhaps big change is in the mind of his airness, but the Charlotte Bobcats name change is being considered by team owner Michael Jordan who says returning to the Hornets nickname was “definitely an interest down the road.”

Speaking of his airness, Michael Jordan just got married to his girlfriend in a tent bigger than his mansion.

NBA Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver, who replaces Commissioner David Stern in February 2014, said the Charlotte Bobcats name change would take at least 18 months if the request is made.
