Rick Bonnell On Cats’ Potential Name Change and Substance Over Style
Rick Bonnell, from the Charlotte Observer, joined the Mac Attack, a day after NBA Commissioner-to-be Adam Silver appeared at a Bobcats town hall meeting and outlined a minimum 18 month timeline for the Bobcats to change their name. As of now, however, the team has not taken any official steps to pursue that change. Rick lays out the scenario and provides insight into Silver’s comments from last night. He also discusses the bigger issues facing the team (winning), Kemba Walker’s development as a point guard, and even takes an opportunity to take some shots at Jim. Rick also clears up the perception that Tom Benson was able to implement the New Orleans name change to Pelicans in a much shorter period of time.
