NBA players from past and present talk Bobcats-Hornets name change

Debby Wong-US PRESSWIRE

A couple gave their support of the name change while Larry Johnson was downright upset that he hasn't been a part of anything they do.

There hasn't been a lot of chatter from NBA players about the name change, but a couple tweeted about the news today.

And Bobcats legend Sean May offered his support!

Whoops!

However, former Hornets star forward Larry Johnson seemed quite offended that he wasn't included in the ceremony or any events with the organization. It should be noted that Johnson does a fair amount of stuff with the Knicks so who knows if he can actually do both simultaneously.

I do think it's pretty funny that he didn't include Alonzo Mourning with him and Muggsy Bogues (who has been a part of Bobcats events for years now).
