It’s not a lame soap opera twist, it’s not a zombie uprising, but this coming weekend we’ll be re-introduced to something very familiar to all of us which has been dead and buried for over ten years… and no, it’s not “Afroman’s” career.
It’s the Charlotte Hornets, ladies and gentlemen! They’re back.
On Saturday, December 21st, the Charlotte Bobcats are expected to unveil the new logos of the re-born Charlotte Hornets, due to take the court for the first time since the 2001-02 season in October 2014. The team, one would imagine, retains the history and records of the expansion Bobcats from 2004/05 on, the original Hornets history stays in the Crescent City in the form of the New Orleans Pelicans.
What’ll the new logos look like? That’s anyone’s guess. Right now the easy answer is “like the old ones” but nobody really knows. They’ve only unveiled the colour scheme so far and, well, it’s like the old one. Teal and purple.
All we can do is base it off of what’s happened in the past, the Charlotte Hornets are hardly the first team to rise up from the dead, what’d the other “Zombie Franchises” do in terms of their branding?
