That logo is much cooler. Should have lead with that.

Yeah, I wish they could bring back the old logo, but part of the deal to get the name back was they had to change the logo.   The new one's not terrible though.

Hopefully they'll be allowed to sell some 'retro' merchandise too.

They're also apparently using this one as a secondary...looks closest to the old logo except more modern in style.

Do you happen to know why New Orleans was allowed to use the old logo?  Just part of the franchise sale I guess?  I assume I've answered my own question, I guess I'm just having trouble understanding why Charlotte isn't allowed to use the old logo as part of their new deal.  I'm having difficulty trying to think of a reason why NOLA would have made that stipulation, or why Jordan would have agreed to it.

I just finished reading this a couple of weeks ago ironically.  Pretty good, but dry at times.  Of course I was hoping for more about King Rex.

Well New Orleans was the same owners and franchise.  They just closed up shop and moved out of Charlotte.  

My best guess why they won't let the Bobcats use the old logo is because they just changed from the Hornets themselves.  Maybe New Orleans was looking for a bigger share on any sales with the old logo too?  (Although merch profits are largely spread across the league already)

Then again the Cleveland Browns get to use all the original logos and pretend it's the same franchise though.  Maybe because the Ravens changed their team identity immediately while New Orleans remained the Hornets for several yrs?   Who knows.  George Shinn may not own New Orleans anymore but I'm sure it's his fault somehow.

The Browns were the first team I thought it when wondering about that issue.  I assumed money was the main reason why the logo wasn't released, just really couldn't think of what they stood to gain.

The pic UADan posted is what they are calling the mascot logo I think.

It's definitely pin stripes or bust. Listen to us MJ

According to this random guy giving out info from another random guy, the light blue team color is for pinstripes only, which would make sense. Hope it's true.

I love that MKJ is there but I have zero faith in Jordan.
