CHARLOTTE Bobcats owner Michael Jordan unveiled the new logos of the Charlotte Hornets for next season.
Jordan revealed the team's primary new logo and word mark during a halftime ceremony Saturday night (Sunday, Manila time).
The primary logo features the purple and teal formerly used by the Charlotte Hornets from 1988-2002 with a more aggressive-looking hornet with piercing eyes, a raised antennae, larger wings and pointed stinger. In the logo is a basketball that doubles as the hornet's body with the Hornets wood mark written across it.
The Bobcats officially become the Hornets the day after their final game this season.
In attendance were former Charlotte Hornets Muggsy Bogues, Rex Chapman, Dell Curry and Kelly Tripucka.
