    I use to love playing as the Hornets in NBA Jam. Zo and Johnson were nearly unbeatable.

    Charlotte Hornets back in 2014-15

    The Charlotte Hornets are back.

    The NBA Board of Governors unanimously approved changing the Charlotte Bobcats name back to the Hornets beginning for the 2014-15 season during its summer meeting Thursday in Las Vegas.

    The Hornets brand became available when the New Orleans Pelicans officially gave it up earlier this year as part of their own name change. The Charlotte Hornets moved to New Orleans in 2002, and the Bobcats joined the league as an expansion team in '04. Commissioner David Stern said Bobcats owner Michael Jordan has been in discussions to get the Hornets name back since he bought the team in 2010.

    "We're thrilled to bring back the Hornets to Charlotte and the Carolinas," Jordan said in a statement. "The passion and enthusiasm around this name change by fans in this market has been unmatched. They overwhelmingly told us what they wanted, we listened and we couldn't be happier with the Board of Governors' approval of the name change. With the young team we are developing on the court, the direction of our business and the return of the Hornets name, we are extremely excited about our future. The buzz is back!"

    As long as Jordan is in charge will any of this matter for the Charlotte franchise? Or will it be the continual spinning of wheels going no where?

    Charlotte should have gone all the way and changed their name to The Jazz.

    Real mascot news: Hearing Pellies are re-designing Pierre's head to make him "less scary," hopefully by All-Star weekend in New Orleans.

    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Quite a coup to get Jay Leno as their new mascot.

    They went from bad to awful. Why not just drop the mascot?

    It's also worth noting that the Pelicans now play in the Smoothie King Center.

    Yep.
