The Charlotte Hornets are an American professional basketball team based in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Hornets compete in the National Basketball Association (NBA), as a member of the league’s Eastern Conference Southeast Division. The team is owned by NBA legend Michael Jordan, who acquired the controlling interest in the Hornets in 2010. The Hornets play their home games at the Spectrum Center in uptown Charlotte.
Since it was established in 1988 as an expansion team, the Hornets have had three nicknames: the Charlotte Bobcats from 2004 to 2014; and the Charlotte Hornets, which restored the original Hornets’ name and color scheme after Jordan took over ownership.
In 2019, the franchise unveiled new logos and a new set of team colors, moving away from teal and purple towards black and gold. The primary logo features a hornet’s nest surrounded by three bees; this is meant to represent Charlotte’s status as a ” hub city ” with a diverse and thriving economy.
The Charlotte Hornets have two main rivals: the Orlando Magic and the Miami Heat.
The rivalry with the Magic began when both teams joined the NBA as expansion franchises in 1988. The two teams have met a total of 144 times, with the Hornets holding a 71-73 all-time record. The rivalry was at its height in the early 1990s, when both teams were among the NBA’s elite.
