After a long, strange odyssey, the Charlotte Hornets have finally returned. It took a move to New Orleans, an expansion franchise, and not one but two nickname changes to make it happen. But finally, after many years, an NBA team named the Charlotte Hornets will be playing in the Association once again.
Check out this local commercial commemorating the occasion that tells the story in a brief, but dramatic way.
“The home team is finally home” – that’s a strong statement to make, especially considering the franchise’s former name came from its owner.
With all this nostalgia regarding the Charlotte Hornets and the return of their original nickname, I hope someone answers what exactly happened to the Charlotte Bobcat. Maybe he died on the way back to his home planet ala Poochie.
