Here are some interesting facts about the Charlotte Hornets:
The original Hornets franchise was established in 1988 as an expansion team. In 2002, the owner of the team, George Shinn, decideed to move the team to New Orleans where they became known as the New Orleans Hornets. In 2004, the NBA announced a new expansion team called the Charlotte Bobcats. In 2013, the New Orleans franchise changed their name to the New Orleans Pelicans. This allowed the Hornets name, records, and official history to go back to Charlotte. As a result, the Bobcats were officially renamed the Charlotte Hornets, in time for the 2014–15 NBA season.
The Charlotte Hornets logo has had four logo variations, including the original design back in 2005, when the team was known as the Charlotte Bobcats. See the different Charlotte Hornets logo designs that they have had over the years.
