I'm hoping they also bring back the awesome Starter jackets that were hugely popular back in the early '90s, because that would definitely be a great start.

The Charlotte Bobcats are known for mediocrity at best, with an overall franchise winning percentage of .346 in 9 season.

Perhaps the name change will bring a change in attitude and culture, and perhaps bring them back to the glory days of stars like Larry Johnson, Muggsy Bogues and Baron Davis.

The change will become official in the 2014-15 season. Thanks to the New Orleans Hornets becoming the Pelicans, the name opened up for the Charlotte franchise. Let's hope they also bring back the "beehive" court pattern as well. This was the greatest court design EVER.
