This morning Rick Bonnell (Sports writer for the Charlotte Observer) had a brief interview with Michael Jordan and asked him a few questions concerning the Charlotte Bobcats and their direction for the 2012-13 season. They addressed everything from Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and how he reminded Jordan of Scottie Pippen, to player’s interactions with Mike Dunlap, and his aspirations for Gerald Henderson as a team leader.
One question the caught the attention of a Bring Back The Buzz advocate was…
–He said the franchise is open to a nickname switch should New Orleans Hornets owner Tom Benson follow through on changing that team’s name. Some fans want the Hornets name and logo back in Charlotte.
We at Bring Back the Buzz immediately posted the news on our multiple social media sites. We were ecstatic to finally have some recent news concerning the re-brand, especially from the Big Man himself. Jordan had been understandably apprehensive about the topic in the past because the New Orleans re-brand had not been “technically” announced. We guess Tom Benson had mentioned the re-brand one too many times last night and Jordan wanted to calm the Beelievers down.Bring Back The Buzz “guys” tend to make “Little things = big news, and they hang on @rick_bonnell’s every word”. This being said we wanted to give it to the people straight. And let the people decide whether or not they want to get excited! BECAUSE WE SURE AS HELL ARE!!!!
