New Orleans Blues! if they can't buy the Jazz name then this is the next best thing.

Being real though, what makes this so funny? I ain't speaking as a n*gga from New Orleans myself, but I'm just curious, why is Hurricane Katrina so hilarious to you?...
because ya'll n*ggas got wiped out...... literally





On a serious note Jazz fits Utah perfectly plus too much history in Utah with Malone & Stockon to change the name now, Utah wouldnt even consider that sh*t judging by how much that city has accomplished, atleast NOLA didnt accomplish sh*t with Hornets as there name

The Katrina jokes prove those theories of weirdos on the internet.

A three team name trade would be crazy awesome but really unrealistic. Logos, jerseys, courts and maybe even colors would have to change, that + promotion would make this far too costly. The best option is to change just the Hornets name to the Blues. That would leave the Hornets name out there for the Bobcats to take if they want it & NOLA can bank off that.

I doubt Jordan would take the hornets name back.. It cost way too much money to rebrand a franchise (think merchandise, advertisements, etc) and it doesn't seem like Jordan's that much committed...

2.5 million dollars for the name change. Thats nothing compared to what he would gain off of the rebrand. throw in another 2 to 3 mil for rebranding purposes and even then, he would still bring in way more.

What would he gain off the rebrand? Who exactly is checking for Charlotte gear? And I mean beyond the name of the franchise, that team has trouble drawing in people. It would be a huge risk.


On a side note, where did u get your figure from? I always a.ssumed it would be higher... But I'm also factoring the losses from discarding any bobcat merch that's in stores or tucked away in the backroom (probably isn't much though..ha)

I got the figure from one of our sports writers blog, and as far as getting rid of Bobcat merch, which Im sure is not a lot, thats why i gave a extra 3 million of overhead for the rebrand. idk if you have been into any of these lids or sports apparel type places, but Charlotte Hornet sh*t is still pretty big. I see cat's rocking a Hornets snapback or jacket a good bit.

Is it a risk ? absolutely but, this is about as good of a thing that MJ could do for this Franchise. A lot of people in the Carolina's won't fu*k with the Bobcats just purely off the fact that they are not the Hornets. So gain the ability to draw those fans back in.

The Bobcats as a name means nothing to "community" outside of it was Bob Johnson being a as*hole and naming the team after himself. While the Hornets, has historical ties to Charlotte since the civil war and sh*t.

with all that said, we will have to put out a good product on the court eventually for it to be a complete success. But a change back to the Hornets and possibly landing Anthony Davis. Thats about a positive of a swing as you can get.

I think a name change would be big for promotion of the team especially in our transition.
