Last December the word got out that the New Orleans Hornets were planning to change their name to the "Pelicans."  Now that their season is over and it's official, the name "Hornets" is apparently up for grabs.  According to the USA Today, Bobcats owner Micheal Jordan intends to reclaim it for the city of Charlotte.  Two things immediately jump to mind: One, I can't wait to see who starts wearing their 1992 Starter jackets again.  And two, it's going to be funny a few years from now when people are talking about the greatest Charlotte Hornet of all-time.  Larry Johnson?  Alonzo Mourning?  Nope, sorry, they're Pelicans.  The correct answer is Gerald Henderson (Jr.).
