So I just got back from the pillow fight that was the Bobcats/Jazz matchup tonight and although that game was uninteresting, I noticed something on my way out of the arena that left me smiling. The new Charlotte Hornet’s logo features the Jordan 11’s, the “Concords” to be specific. I guess if 3/4 of the league’s players are going to wear the brand then why not the mascots as well.
This has to be a sign of good things to come for the team, right? Are there any teams out there making larger strides toward success than the Hornets (Bobcats)? I mean not only do we bring in a big-contract free agent that actually earns his paycheck in his first year (Al Jefferson), a rarity, but we upgrade the team from being a bunch of orange and powder blue cats to some badass teal & purple stinging insects. While I’m on the topic of upgrading.. is there anyone that will be downgraded this offseason more than Ben Gordon? Dude is making something like $14M this season and I don’t know that he even has a place in the league next year.
