I'll third the perspective preaching. Just because you feel a certain way doesn't mean it's the only way to feel. Just because you like the name doesn't mean the people who dislike it are wrong. Just because you dislike the name doesn't mean the people who like it are wrong. Disliking it doesn't make you a female dog whiny baby. Liking it doesn't make you a groveler. It's just how we feel, in the heat of the moment, as raw and unchecked as possible (would be more unchecked if there wasn't a content filter on the forum).
But at the end of the day, the important thing is that this is happening. If this article is correct, the name is decided. It's over. And you can continue supporting the team, or you can hope MJ brings the Hornets back to Charlotte. I'll still be here, cheering loudly, wearing my Pelican gear, and I hope to look over and see you with me. Because whatever the name is, this team is going to be special eventually. And I'll be happy to shout whatever name that is at the top of my lungs. Who's with me?
