About Scotty & Evan

Rare is the sort of unconditional love and undying devotion that was once the hallmark of the relationship between the city of Charlotte and her Hornets. Night after night, year after year, "The Hive" was alive; impassioned Beelievers wreaked a unique aural havoc upon all who dared to enter that hallowed hall. From the 20-win seasons of Rambis and Tripuka, to the genuine Eastern Conference contenders of the late 1990's, this city; this jewel of the New South; provided both the NBA and the nation at large a perfectly-executed blue print of the power of civic pride. Then there were the lean years. Our once beloved owner...let's just say he became somewhat less beloved. This was followed by the acrimonious arena issue. And in a matter of a few short seasons, the one constant in this city of flux, our beloved Hornets, was gone. I defy any of you present for that final, crushing playoff loss to state that you didn't shed a tear as you filed into the parking lot. But hope, as they say, springs eternal. B** Johnson managed to bring the NBA back to the Queen City in 2004. As my mother taught me to refrain from speaking of someone unless I had something complimentary to say, this will be the last I will mention of Mr. Johnson. Let's cut to the chase. The B**Cats have been a PR disaster...the ownership has, in a round about way, admitted as much. Whether it was through their own doing (oh, I don't know...C-SET, anybody?!?) or factors outside of their control (the 'jilted-lover' scars of a fanbase done wrong), they've never taken hold in the city of Charlotte, much less on a national scale (stroll through the streets of any major city long enough, and you're bound to see a hip kid sporting throwback Charlotte Hornet gear. I don't think I've ever seen any B**Cats paraphernalia outside of the metro area...and not much inside the metro area). The Honorable Sir Airness himself vented his frustrations in a recent Charlotte Observer article: "Number one for 10 years!" Jordan said, his voice rising. "The community supported it and at that time, the Hornets supported the city. I want to duplicate that. I want us to be No. 1 in attendance and No. 1 in the community. "If we ask people to invest in us, we must invest in them." Let's face the facts, Mike. The swiftest, savviest, most crowd pleasing way to convince this community to "invest in (you)"? GIVE US BACK OUR HORNETS. The current New Orleans Hornets franchise has been embroiled in an unparalleled period of strife. Left high and dry by George Shinn (sound familiar?), the team was purchased by the NBA in 2010. Recently, League Commissioner David Stern has made%2

  1. Sounds like it has become more about Scotty and Evan to me. I mean, it’s a cool thing, but the team is only interested in hearing from the season-ticket holders and it doesn’t really matter if you have a story in the NYT or not. You had to buy season-tickets just to have them pretend to care about your opinion. People have wanted the Hornets name back, since well before you guys.

    • Mike I am sorry you feel this way. It has never been our intent to receive the credit. Infact we have said the complete opposite in almost every interview we have ever done. This is about Charlotte and always has been from day one. Now of course people have wanted the Hornets name back long before you ever heard of us but the reality is we have been doing this for 3 years now and have not made a dime. The only reason we have gotten any media attention within the past year is because there appears to be some validity in the movement I, Evan and John from “We Beelieve….Charlotte Take Back Your Hornets started.

      We spoke with the Bobcats and there will be a survey that is going out to the city aswell, asking them how they feel about the name change. And the Bobcats do not have to pretend to care about our opinion, they are a multi million dollar organization….they do not have to do anything they dont want to. However, they realize the importance of this name, what it means to this city and that the name Hornets has belonged to this town loooooong before the NBA was founded in New York City in 1946.

      We appreciate your opinion but we respectfully disagree.
