LAS VEGAS (AP) Charlotte is the home of the Hornets once again.

The NBA unanimously approved Charlotte’s nickname change from Bobcats to Hornets on Thursday at the league’s Board of Governors meeting. The original Hornets built a supportive fan base in Charlotte from the time they entered the league in 1988 until they moved to New Orleans in 2002.

Hitting To All Fields: RIP Gandolfini, Bobcats’ Draft Pick, & David Stern’s Last NBA Draft

First and foremost, rest in PEACE to James Gandolfini aka “Tony Soprano” who passed away of a heart attack at 51. He was a transcendent American figure who was taken way too early from this world. Hands down, The Sopranos was one of the epic shows in television history.

Now, I don’t typically buy conspiracy theories. Trust me, I don’t. But the NBA Draft Lottery? Well, let’s just say some convenient things have happened throughout the years. Like last year, when the NBA-0wned New Orleans Hornets won the lucky ping pong ball and not our Charlotte Bobcats, who had the worst record. Saints owner Tom Benson had just agreed to purchase the team, which the league had been trying to sell for a year and a half. Add in the fact that Benson was in attendance and Michael Jordan wasn’t and you can see why people raised questions.

2012 NBA Mock Draft: First Round

This 2012 NBA Mock Draft is more like a blueprint for what each team should do and not what they will do. Too many times, teams make the wrong decision based on the determination that a certain player has more talent than another or too much consideration is given towards long-term value versus short-term greatness.
