"I’d like to congratulate the Charlotte Hornets on officially making their return to the Queen City. The Hornets have deep roots in Charlotte, and for many of our citizens, the team's identity was never lost. After a strong end to last season, we look forward to “bringing back the buzz” and welcoming Hugo and the Hornets to Time Warner Cable Arena."
