Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer sheds light on one of the first issues Michael Jordan will have to deal with. A name change for his Charlotte Bobcats. And according to the multitudes of emails Bonnell has received about the subject, folks in Charlotte are really behind the idea.
If Michael Jordan listens to his customers, and potential customers, he’ll seriously consider a name change from “Bobcats” once his purchase of Charlotte’s NBA franchise is complete.
Too many of you have emailed me with that suggestion not to think it’s an issue to many Charlotteans. You didn’t like Bob Johnson naming the team after himself, and you sure don’t see this as a positive once Johnson is no longer majority owner.
Should “Bobcats” name depart, too? (Charlotte Observer)
