Charlotte is going back to being the Hornets now that New Orleans is dropping the nickname. To celebrate, Charlotte’s WCNC posted this video of the original Charlotte Hornets’ uniform reveal from 1988 on YouTube. The star of the video is Kelly Tripucka who averaged 23 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists during the Hornets inaugural season. Tripucka was thrilled because he liked light blues, purples and mauves.
