Since 2004, they have been known as the Charlotte Bobcats. Next season, however, they will go back to their roots and change back to their original nickname: the Hornets. In anticipation for the return to the old nickname, the team has rolled out a new campaign entitled "Buzz City." No explanation needed there, right? And tonight marked a big day for the franchise with the unveiling of their new logo during halftime of the Bobcats/Jazz game at the Time Warner Cable Arena

Even the Duke Energy Center is getting in on the action, lighting up the building the team's traditional purple and teal color scheme. 

Hey Charlotte, "Its Beginning to look A lot like Hornets". Purple & Teal Uptown. #BuzzCity #CharlotteHornets
