Who are the best Charlotte Hornets of all time? While they haven't won a championship yet, the best Charlotte Hornets (neé Bobcats) players are due to get one soon. 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. Who are the best Charlotte Hornets players of all time? Which Charlotte Hornets stars do you love?

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. Many of the players on this list were on the Bobcats first playoff roster 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. 

Other key NBA players to spend time in Charlotte are Emeka Okafor, Stephen Jackson, Tyson Chandler, Jeremy Lin, and Kemba Walker. Even current Hornets such as Gordon Hayward, 'Scary Terry' Rozier, and LaMelo Ball are making an impact in the NBA for Charlotte.
