The Charlotte Bobcats are gone. Last week they officially reclaimed the Hornets moniker, but will the team be able to recapture the buzz of the original bugs? How will we ever feel the thrill shared by fans on opening day for those Hornets back in November of 1988? We look back at those Hornets, remember some names and moments from the past and peer into a crystal ball for what the future Hornets may bring. (Originally aired 11/26/2013)
