Sports Team
    (1988- )
    Franchise moved to New Orleans (2002); when New Orleans Hornets changed named to Pelicans (2013), the Charlotte Bobcats changed their name back to Hornets (2014)
    No NBA championships
    One retired number: Bobby Phills' #13
    Former and current players include Alonzo Mourning, Larry Johnson, Muggsy Bogues, Glen Rice, Baron Davis, Jamal Mashburn, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Cody Zeller
    They were part of the expansion boom of the late 1980's.
    They went from having the highest NBA attendance to one of the lowest within years.
    This partly had to do with owner George Shinn either releasing or trading all of their best players.
    It didn't help Shinn's case with Charlotte when he went on trial for sexual assault.
    After he promised not to move, the Hornets moved to New Orleans.
    Some people call them the 'whore-nets.'
    They drafted Kobe Bryant, but they traded him for Vlade Divac.
    Something must've happened when Mourning and Johnson were Hornet teammates, as they were fighting each other in the end of a pivotal Heat-Knicks playoff game.
    Despite all their promising talent, they never reached the conference finals.
    Their name is a Revolutionary War term describing the resistance of British troops in North Carolina.
    They gave us Larry 'Grandmama' Johnson and Muggsy Bogues.
    They have a teal uniform color.
    Similar to the Baltimore Ravens/Cleveland Browns agreement, the Pelicans relinquishment of the nickname and records to Charlotte makes the New Orleans franchise a separate entity, despite the fact the Bobcats were a 2004 expansion franchise.
