The Charlotte Hornets were established as an expansion franchise in 1988. Owner George Shinn moved the team to New Orleans in 2002 where the team kept the name Hornets. In 2004, a new expansion team arrived in Charlotte called the Bobcats.

When the New Orleans franchise rebranded as the Pelicans, the Hornets name was returned to Charlotte. The team became the Hornets again prior to the 2014-15 season. The city had no team in 2003 and 2004.

In the Hornets relatively short existence in the NBA, the team has never won an NBA title. In fact, Charlotte has never won a Southeast Division title either.

The Hornets have made the NBA playoffs just ten times. The team’s best division finish is second place, which they have done in four seasons. Because of the Hornets shortcomings, the team has usually played a part in the NBA draft TV schedule.

Since becoming the Hornets again in 2014-15, Charlotte has been to the NBA playoffs just once. They were eliminated by the Miami Heat in the first round.
