Michael Jordan wants to ”bring the buzz back” to Charlotte.
The Bobcats owner said at a press conference Tuesday evening he’s changing his team’s name to the Charlotte Hornets beginning in 2014-15.
Jordan said he submitted an application to the NBA board of governors earlier Tuesday informing them of his decision and is optimistic the board will approve the name change when they convene in July.
”Let’s bring the buzz back, and bring that energy back on the basketball court and make this city proud again,” Jordan said.
Charlotte will remain the Bobcats next season, but if all goes as planned Jordan anticipates his team will become the Hornets the following season.
Finally. No one liked the Bobcats. The name, the colors…they just weren’t ours. Looking forward to the 2014-15 season. Sure, it’ll just be the same awful Bobcats in better colors, but those colors make everything instantly better.
With the core gamer market already dismissing the XboxOne (seriously, why that name), November is going to be interesting.

What do I want from tomorrow’s big “Next Xbox” reveal? A $99 Xbox 360 - without a Live subscription.— Terence (@TOPolk) May 20, 2013
This is all I want from tomorrow’s Xbox event. Is it likely to happen? Probably not, as a price drop on the 360 will be best saved for E3. Still, having been a Wii-only gamer last generation, I would like to go back and play some of the games I missed, but I refuse to pay $300 to do so. Ideally, I would love for the PlayStation 3 to reach the $99 (or the more likely, $149) price point first as Sony has better exclusives, but hey, beggars can’t be choosy.
Even with my biggest desire being nothing more than a pipe dream, I’ll still be tuning in. It’s always interesting to see what the competition is cooking up.
You don’t realize how much of a nerd you are on a subject until you start explaining something to someone and realize how in depth you can really go.
Bullshit, New Jersey 3rd in Survey of Cursing (larger)
Yo KT, looks like your #pleaseandthankyoumovement is desperately needed in IN. (Notice how polite CT is…)
look at georgia! we’re real cute with our manners n shit!
LOL this reminds me. This week I tried to explain to a CA native friend of mine that a GA native friend of mine is so glad to be leaving so cal. She graduated school and was out like a shot in 2 days. She didn’t mind socal weather but she HATED day to day life with socal people.
A lot of southern folks are so damned polite that they forget it is their culture to be polite and when they leave, they think everyone else is rude as fuck. As a GA native, I see where they are coming from. I am just glad I remember that it isn’t that people are being rude (well, sometimes they are…) but usually it is just a cultural difference.
Southerns represent them manners.
Yay, Maryland!! We’re top 3 in cursing AND courtesy.
I was thinking the same thing about Louisiana, Ed.
Good to see South Carolina in the #1 spot for something positive. Woo hoo!
While I’m not doing much today, today is a big day for some of my students. (Yes, we have our graduation on a Monday. It’s weird, I know. Apparently it’s a tradition, but I haven’t been able to find anyone who knows when, where, or why it started. Anyways…) In the past hour, I’ve had three of them drop by to thank me for helping them out when the odds were not in their favor. It’s great to see everything work out in the end as there was a lot of money riding on them graduating through either retracted job offers or another semester of school and no one wanted either of those scenarios to play out. Here’s to them figuring out the real world with a little less difficulty.
Picked this up from Amazon just now for $29.99. I know that’s only $10 off the MSRP, but if you knew how often Nintendo 1st-party titles go on sale, you’d understand why I jumped on this deal ASAP. (The original New Super Mario Bros. for the Nintendo DS came out in 2006 and still carries a price tag of $34.99.) If you’re a 3DS owner, now’s a great time to pick up a title you may have passed on earlier. There’s a lot of great deals going on now, with a surprising number of 1st party games on sale.
It’s Monday. I’m here. Sorta by popular demand. Good thing I listened to the people. With
graduation Commencement happening in my building’s front yard, today is a day where (historically) a lot of work doesn’t get done. It would have been a shame to waste a free day off.
Super #Metroid took up juuust a bit of my time on Sunday. #nintendoenthused #wiiu
Scooter’s Birthday is on Tuesday. Here’s to celebrating a bit earlier (though no presents ‘til Tuesday!). Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cheesecake. Our apartment smells AMAZING!
Can’t wait for this bad boy to chill. NOMS.
EA pisses me off. They’re not making any games on Wii U. Fuck Ea, I hope they go under.
As a gamer who is also a lifelong Nintendo fan, I can’t say I’m upset by their decision. From a business perspective, it makes sense. What I am upset by are their childish statements repeatedly driving home their current disdain for the Wii U. You don’t like the Wii U. We get it. No bother though, Nintendo fans don’t care for you either, so there’s no loveloss there. They haven’t made a 3DS game since 2011 - none of us cared.
Nintendo will be fine. They will continue doing what they do. And for better or worse, EA will continue being EA.
