What Becomes of Bobby Phil's Jersey?


I always thought it was dumb it was in Nola's rafters. When the Hornets go back to Charlotte, do they return it?

meh, he was a local guy. It may stay. It would be pretty sweet if we could find an old Bucs player to retire and have a Jazz, Bucs, Hornets, and eventually Pelicans jersey up there

But Pete was apart of New Orleans' history. Bobby had nothing to do with New Orleans or the Pelicans.

Edit: He was a local but still not a part of New Orleans NBA history.

While we're at it, include the red OKC Valentine's day jersey as well.

Was from Louisiana though and even if Charlotte gets the Hornets back, we are and will always be "the original franchise".

When they moved to Nola, there was no agreement with Charlotte like Cleveland with the Browns and Seattle had with the Sonics where the records/history stayed with the city.
