Detroit is the Motor City. Portland is Rip City. Golden State is just The City. Wanting to get in on this theme, the Charlotte Hornets have unveiled these brand-new numbers.
Buzz City. Presumably a town full of angry hornets. Literally the worst place in the world since Pharoah’s Egypt during the plagues.

The jersey was shown to the public exactly six minutes before last night’s NBA draft began. And the Hornets kept the excitement train rolling down the tracks by drafting white big man Frank Kaminsky.

Remember, this is a team full of players Michael Jordan still believes he can beat in one-on-one.
Perhaps creating a fake city is desperate. But desperate times call for desperate measures.
