    Gayle Benson: Hornets colors to be Red, Navy, and Gold next season

    Figured this could actually use it's own thread so it doesn't fill up other threads like the game thread.

    the reason given for not getting black is a bit, ummmm, odd .... there's only 2 teams who wear black (I think so at least -- Nets/Spurs).

    Not really. Ms Benson mentioned it before.

    Also, its the same mascot as the University of the Incarnate Word which is a private college in San Antonio which the Bensons are heavily involved.

    ooooh the plot thickens!
    I think Cardinals and Pelicans are the front runners... based on nothing

    I like the New Orleans Cardinals. Maybe the red/gold/navy will grow on me but hopefully I can win the powerball tonight and offer Benson a lil change to keep the colors the same

    Wait, I didn't think we'd be able to rebrand in time for next year?

  15. #15
    Yea, I agree... Black of Navy for sure.

    She made it sound like it would be announced at the end of this year and used next season? Maybe i am reading too much into it.
    Stern could certainly wave the 2 year waiting period.

    The name cardinals holds some kinda significance to catholicism right? Or am i making that up? Cardinal priests, cardinal sins etc.
    If so thats probably exactly what it is lol.

    Yea. She said they would use the name next season, unless I'm just hearing what I wanted to hear.

    I know it's a Carolina thing, but I was still hopeful for baby/powder blue and grey.

    Also, this color scheme sounds a lot like the old Cavs jerseys when LeBron was playing

    Bulls and Heat. There may be a couple more.

    I would be happy with Cardinals.
