Let's Go...Hornets!

Record #:
In 1987, the Charlotte Hornets were introduced by Kannapolis resident George Shinn. The Hornets were well received and loved by the city until 1999 when Shinn's controversies set unwanted light on the team. Shinn moved his team to New Orleans in 2012 and investment in the Charlotte Bobcats has been difficult. To add fuel to the fire is the worst season in NBA history, and now, a group of fans is calling for the Charlotte Bobcats to return to their original name of Charlotte Hornets.
