pretty generic/standard response from NBA store:
Thank you for contacting Customer Service at www.NBAStore.com.
We searched our website to see if we had any Charlotte Bobcats hat
and/or shirts available for the 2012 Draft. Unfortunately, we do not
carry this item at this time. We operate a real-time inventory system
that updates our web store catalog according to what is available in our
inventory. If an item, size, or color is not available, we remove it
from the Internet store to avoid any confusion. In addition, we are
unable to provide estimated arrival times for product replenishments
unless otherwise indicated on the website.
We are always adding new products to our online inventory and want to
encourage you to check back frequently to view our newest selections. If

Good call. getting a bit ahead of myself over here. Nerves are getting to me. But seriously how cool would that be if we do win #1 tonight. Anthony Davis walking across the stage holding up a brand new Bobcats jersey. Major PR win and major basketball operations win in the same moment.
@ncstamey- that was a weak/standard response. Why would they not carry that but, carry the same item for every other team..
I guess it does confirm that it wasn't an error on the website, they truly aren't offering it.
Something is going on.
No one from the team, media has responded to any of my tweets.
And RealGM is going to be filled with:
"Haha what a joke!"
"MJ is a terrible GM!"
"They deserve to miss out on the #1 pick!"
"contract that joke of a franchise!"
Somewhere, that Bobcats employee who leaked this info months ago is yelling, "AND THEY SAID I WAS CRAZY!"
If its not an error and they really aren't offering it, this sounds like we are changing the logo and/or colors.
Just had a semi interesting email exchange with Paul Lukas the guy who runs ESPN's Uni-Watch. Homeboy knows everything about uniforms. I'll just post the exchange.
literally 2 minutes later he responded withQuote:
There has been a big movement in Charlotte to get the Bobcats to re-re-brand to the Hornets and New Orleans is wanting a change as well.
A quick trip here to the NBA draft section - http://store.nba.com/search/index.js...A/2836124&sr=1
shows nothing about the Charlotte Bobcats, a team that could possibly win number 1 overall.
Couple that with the fact that the Bobcats team store has EVERYTHING 60% off and I'm starting to wonder. I know the team sucked last year and theres a chance that they just want to dump the gear and they know no one will pay full price. But my question to you is, do you know of any re-brand coming down the line. Maybe not the Hornets switch, but just a Bobcats color re-branding and jersey change.
I know you can't go spilling secrets to random fans on the internet, but I will even accept vague ominous hints.
"I know you can't go spilling secrets to random fans on the internet... " No, I can't. I would say that your logic is not far-fetched, however.
nice... now I'm getting anxious to know whats going on with this whole thing.
