Name and History confusion:
A lot of fans have confusion about the name and history of the Hornets and now the Pelicans. The team that is now the Pelicans began as the Charlotte Hornets in 1988 and remained so until 2002 when they moved to New Orleans. in 2014 the New Orleans Hornets became the New Orleans Pelicans and the name transferred to this current franchise.
For the purpose of this site, we have kept the original Hornets history for the Pelicans and the Bobcats history for the Hornets(14-Present)
The Teams: Bobcats|
They are the newest of the 30 NBA teams, formed in 2003. They are the Charlotte Bobcats.
The Bobcats history is thin at best, but in each of their first three seasons the team has gotten considerably better than the previous season. Their first season they won just 18 games, the next season that number jumped to 26, and just last season they finished with 33 wins.
The Bobcats were born out of the controversy of the Charlotte Hornets relocating after the 2002 season. Charlotte which had always had good attendance for its NBA games lost the Hornets because the city wouldn’t build a new arena for Hornets owner George Shinn.
