Rest in Pieces: 50 Demolished Sports Stadiums We Love

42. Charlotte Coliseum

Location: 100 Paul Buck Boulevard, Charlotte, North Carolina
Opened: 1988
Demolished: 2007
Current status: Dirt
Nickname: "The Hive"
Famed tenants: Charlotte Hornets (NBA) (1988-2002), Charlotte Bobcats (NBA) (2004-2005)

Despite leading the NBA in attendance for their first seven seasons at the Hive, the Charlotte Hornets met with a spectacular decline (mostly because the entire city came to hate the owner) and shipped off to NOLA. But for a minute there, with stars like Larry Johnson, Alonzo Mourning, and Mugsy Bogues stinging the opposition, The Hive was definitely buzzing.
