List Rules Top Charlotte Hornets and Bobcats players only.

While they haven't won a championship yet, the best Charlotte Hornets players are due to get one soon. Known for a short time as the Charlotte Bobcats, the franchise has an interesting--though convoluted--story. Formed originally in 1988, the Hornets franchise moved to New Orleans in 2002. The NBA then formed the Charlotte Bobcats in 2004 as a new franchise. But in 2013, the New Orleans Hornets rebranded themselves as the Pelicans and returned the Hornets franchise to Charlotte.

Now that we have the history out of the name, we need to find out who are the best Charlotte Hornets / Bobcats players of all time. Record-wise, the Hornets have been pretty much one of the worst teams in the NBA. However, they have drafted a number of promising players that have potential.

They may not be superstar caliber, but they still are solid all around. Mostly these guys are role players whose best days came with other teams, but even so, many of the players on this list were on the Bobcats first playoff team of 2009-2010, which was the team's first time with a winning record.

The Bobcats were led by Gerald Wallace for most of the team's existence. The team's first representative in the All Star Game, Wallace holds many of the team's major records. Emeka Okafor was named Rookie of The Year during the team's inaugural season. Other key NBA players to spend time in Charlotte are  Stephen Jackson, Tyson Chandler, Jeremy Lin, and Raymond Felton. 

Maybe the most famous person in Charlotte Bobcats history isn't even a player: it's Michael Jordan. The best basketball player of all time is currently the Bobcats owner. But enough about him, after all, this is a list of the best Charlotte Hornets players of all time. If you think someone is missing from this list, feel free to add him.
