"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
To further consider your esteemed argument I'd consider taking on Nietzche's prattle, but only if he threw in an unprotected 1st Round digression.

To turn the discussion to basketball, the argument against this willed "social darwinism" would be Lebron James. Had this social engineering occurred in the 1950s, George Mikan would've been the most desirable candidate. The 60s would've rendered an army of Wilts and Russells. This would've robbed basketball of Dr. J, MJ, and most recently Lebron. From decade to decade it's virtually impossible to conceive what the next great will look like. In the era when Jordan was dominating, it would have been preposterous to tell your friends, "Imagine a guy three inches taller, fifty pounds heavier, that can jump just as high and run just as fast." Evolution is far more powerful than imagination in terms of the limitations of human beings.
Without doubt Lebron would've been able to beat Nietzche's Ubermenschlich man one-on-one.
If the Bobcats trade Wallace for Curry, they become part of the ebb of the great flood, but the Cavs would be taking steps to becoming uber.
