With the Bobcats bringing the Hornets nickname back to Charlotte, we asked on Twitter (@ESPNNBA) for your favorite memories of the original Charlotte Hornets. Many fans responded, including @Drakeycakes who said "Mourning's 20-footer to beat the Celtics in the '93 East Qtrs. 10-year-old me was going nuts." Mourning, shown here earlier in the series, averaged 23.8 PPG and 10.0 RPG in the Hornets' first postseason appearance and series victory.
