Charlotte Hornets Logo History

The Charlotte Hornets are back. The quintessential 1990s team has returned from the graveyard of changed towns and new franchises to become the team everyone remembers for their awesome teal colors and logo. Nothing says 90s than bright colors and a chunky font. The Charlotte Hornets were the poster child for 90s NBA team logos and colors alonside the Memphis Grizzlies and San Antonio Spurs. Now they’re back and better than ever. After being moved to New Orleans in 2002, where they now have become the New Orleans Pelicans, Charlotte replaced the Hornets with a new organization under the helm of Michael Jordan called the Charlotte Bobcats. Thanks to the rise in popularity of snap backs and retro jerseys, the original Hornets logo remained popular and influential in the NBA fan hood culture. Even though New Orleans altered the original logo and colors, the original Charlotte Hornets name has remained symbolically strong in the Carolinas and in the rest of the country. The original Charlotte Hornets, with their teal and purple, will return to the court in fall of 2014. Let’s look at a history of the Charlotte Hornets’ classic logo and colors.

I’ll always be a husker at heart and let me tell you, I can’t get my hands on enough Huskers apparel (as my boyfriend knows all too well). The fact that the Huskers have done well sport-wise (they had excellent weekend wins in football and basketball) is exciting and has spurred me to purchase even more items. I’m radiating pride. Can you feel it?

Well, I just have to say how pleased and excited I am about my new Husker items I recently received in the mail. I ordered from Husker Planet, a site I came across when searching for Nebraska jewelry. I wanted something girly and fun because let’s face it – the selection at WalMart is not that great. If I want a trash bin or generic tee it serves its purpose, but I’ve been in need of something a little more classy.
