The Charlotte Hornets have announced they’re bringing the uniforms worn from 1997-2002 back to commemorate the team’s 35th anniversary.
The Hornets will have a very different look as an organization next season, with Michael Jordan set to take a step back as he’s set to relinquish his majority stake. While he will remain an owner, MJ will retainn a minority share and will no longer be a decision-maker.
The team will have a different look on the floor too as players will be wearing throwbacks from the team’s most successful era, one in which they reached the playoffs in three consecutive seasons (1999-2002) under the late Paul Silas.
Former point guard Baron Davis was Charlotte’s biggest star during that era, coming in as the third overall pick in the 1999 NBA Draft and making his first All-Star team in 2022. 1999 was also the year the team signed rapper Master P to a 10-day contract in training camp.
Master P would also get a similar contract with the Toronto Raptors.
The Hornets will wear the throwback threads for eight home games. They will also be available at the Hornets Fan Shop, as well as other retail outlets.
