What he said is uncontroversial, but surprising. We’ve known for a while that the organization is polling season ticket holders about a potential Bobcats-to-Hornets name change. MJ hasn’t released the results or shared the contents of his inbox so it’s hard to contest the “very mixed” comment.
But who really supports keeping the Bobcats name?
Lewis Woodard chats with Ben Swanson, editor of the popular Bobcats’ blog Rufusonfire.com.
I rarely hear anyone argue for keeping the Bobcats name, but I’ve heard people sarcastically quip that the organization should focus instead on improving the product on the floor. I can’t disagree with that, and who could? But nobody believes changing the name will lead to more wins. It also misses the point. The issue is whether or not to change the name.
Why would Hornets make more sense than Bobcats?
