Jordan Interested In Bringing Hornets' Nickname Back To Charlotte

Michael Jordan has expressed interest in having the Hornets' nickname return to Charlotte.

“It’s definitely an interest down the road, but right now it’s the New Orleans Hornets,” Jordan told the Observer. “We would definitely entertain the opportunity. That’s as much as we can say right now. We’ve heard the community ask the question, and we would listen.”

Many in Charlotte continue to have fondness for the Hornets' teal-and-purple.

The New Orleans Hornets are interested in changing the nickname to something more associated with Louisiana.

The NBA already owns the rights to the name Charlotte Hornets, which would make a transition fairly easy.

The Bobcats were named after initial owner Robert L. Johnson.
