From a marketing perspective I also think that makes some sense as they could sell the " new Hornets jerseys" and a shitload of the throwbacks.

2. If the "Lakers" gave up there name, it'd belong in Minnesota, where it began and actually makes sense. Just like Jazz belongs in New Orleans, not Utah.
3. This isn't about a "name" or its affect on the abilities of the team, so much as a culture. Taking Hornets away from Charlotte is like taking away Steelers from Pittsburgh or 76ers from Philadelphia. Yes, it's "only" a name, but it reflects an attitude of the city that has existed LONG before the sports team took on such a name.
And as far as the uniforms go, it wouldn't be Hornets without the Purple, and the end of that wonderful traffic cone orange.
As for the uniforms. Would be nice for an more up to date version of the classic(i actually like the colours for the Bobcats but hey, maybe have the orange as a alt special shirt hehe)
Would be interesting when we turn to the hornets if we wore bobcats jerseys every once in a while
My main concern is about the logo. I must have the original logo, the one Gib uses for his avatar, or I will weep. That is just such a classic! And with my color compromise it would have the exact look...maybe have some silver outlining the wings.
"The Charlotte Hornets name has been a mainstay throughout the region for many years, and we are excited to announce our intention to re-establish this historic brand. We believe that its return will galvanize our fan base by unifying our loyal Bobcats fans with those who have strong memories of our city's NBA predecessor." MJ, 5-21-13
