He had a 1-hour TV special to break Cleveland fans' hearts. There was a 10 story poster of him in downtown Cleveland, which the police had to tear down because there were almost riots. Forget him. Michael is much better.

Denver Nuggets? Ha ha ha. I'm not from the US and I would have to say that is the funniest name for a team... where I'm from if you call someone a nugget it's because they are short and stocky (very un-basketball player like) or it's another name for poo!

No, silly goose! They are sponsored and named by McDonald's, to advertise for their chicken nuggets. Just kidding. They're named after gold nuggets that were found in the West.

Makes sense though as the Charlotte area is known as the "hornet's nest". Now the Jazz, Lakers, and Grizzlies need to change their names.

The Charlotte Hornets moved to New Orleans and lived life as the New Orleans Hornets for a number of years before switching names to the Pelicans. The Charlotte Bobcats were a new franchise that popped up after the Hornets left. When the New Orleans franchise changed names, it opened up the ability for the Bobcats to switch names to the Hornets. So, much like the Cleveland Browns circa 1999, these are two completely different franchises that end up being named exactly the same thing.
