Break Out The Reebok Pumps, The Charlotte Hornets Are Coming Back
NBA fans in the 1990s know that the ‘cool team’ was the Charlotte Hornets. Sure, the Chicago Bulls won all the championships, but the Hornets had cool players, sweet uniforms and Grandmama!
Rejoice! Grab yourself a McD.L.T, some Crystal Pepsi and get ready to watch one of the coolest teams in NBA history come back. That’s right, the Charlotte Bobcats will be no more, and the Charlotte Hornets are back. In 2014, the team will finally be reinstated a decade after moving away from Charlotte to New Orleans.
For the last 10 years, Charlotte was cheering for the Bobcats, and boy was it disappointing. But since the New Orleans Hornets have changed their name to the Pelicans — don’t even get us started on that — they can have the name back.
Maybe they can even bring back Muggsy Bogues, Alonzo Mourning and Larry Johnson! Doubtful, but wishful thinking doesn’t hurt.
