The Charlotte Hornets started NBA play in 1988. In 2002, team owner George Shinn moved the franchise to New Orleans. Charlotte was granted a team immediately and began playing as the Charlotte Bobcats in 2004. In 2014, after much negotiations, The Hornets nickname was brought back as well as team history from the previous Charlotte Hornets franchise. The Hornets reclaimed the original colors but other than keeping the same color scheme, the new logo is very different than the old Hornets logo.
