@NO: Sorta/Not Really Opponent Game Thread Highlights
SB Nation’s Hornets blog, At the Hive, had an unbusy game thread of 7 comments (which became 6 after a spam post was deleted). During timeouts, I uneffortly tried to find a Hornets blog with a game thread, and the best I came up with was Hornets Report’s forum, whose game post had 50+ comments.
–from the last time the Jazz played the Hornets.
This time around, At the Hive’s game thread had a grand total of…0 comments (ouch). Hornet Report didn’t even post a game thread, so I am pulling Jazz-related comments from a non-game thread that caught my eye while searching for the game thread: Name Change Ideas.
If you could change the name of the Hornets franchise what would you change it too?
Only Rule: You can’t be the Jazz. I can’t see that ever happening again with the way the NBA works

Either Buccannears or we blackmail Utah into giving us back our Jazz.

Buccaneers, Pilots, Gamblers, Swampthings, Rebels, Jazzz, Gators.

The only name id want besides the current one is Jazz. This club has been here for almost 10 years,minus the katrina period, a name change now would be stupid. Unless its Neonights.

I like Soul and Blues also. They get my vote. My first choice would be Jazz but that will never happen….

…Of course it should be JAZZ, and if any amount of money could make the “reclamation” happen, maybe Chouest is the guy to answer our prayers. i really think the effort & expense would be worth fully exploring (can you imagine how much merchandise he’d sell if it happened??)

i really really really doubt we can somehow bring the jazz brand back..i’d love to see it happening of course but imo there’s not even a slightest chance

The big problem with getting the Jazz name back right now is that the Jazz are in the process of re-branding themselves by going back to their old brand. That is what has historically sold, whether here or in SLC. If the Jazz weren’t going back to the musical note, I’d immediately consider going with the name Blues and using the a musical note for our symbol, with a purple, green and gold color scheme. The St. Louis Blues of the NHL use a musical note as their symbol. But with the Jazz going back to the musical note now, I am not sure that we would be allowed to do it. That move is still haunting us.

Neonights and Buccaneers seemed to be the most popular choices, although out of the ones proposed I personally like the Soul and the Blues. There were also several votes for the New Orleans Voodoo and one for the New Orleans Fail.
