Year after year, the Charlotte Bobcats always end up being some sort of disappointment and with a 10-32 record as the second half of the season just got underway–it doesn’t look like things are going to get better anytime sooner. At this point, the organization seems like they would be willing to try just about anything to turn things around, but maybe a fresh new team name would provide a little spark to turn things around.
With New Orleans officially changing their name from the Hornets to the Pelicans, it appears one of the top NBA rumors involves the chances of the team switching their name back to the Charlotte Hornets since it would be available. After the original Hornets moved, the Bobcats became a completely new team in 2004 and with the way things have gone over the last couple of years–change may be just what this team needs.
As bad as it sounds, the chances of the Bobcats turning things around anytime soon seem very slim, but that doesn’t mean the team isn’t loaded with plenty of talented players–especially Kemba Walker.
For a player that was always fun to watch in college, Walker is making quite the name for himself in Charlotte as he’s averaging just under 18 points per game to go along with 3.4 rebounds per game and 5.7 assists. It’s a shame to see this team struggle as much as they have with an owner like Michael Jordan, but that just shows he’s clearly better off as a player than an owner–which means this team could be in trouble for a few more years still.
