The Charlotte Hornets are a team waiting for a legacy to return, and are thus stuck betwixt and between until it arrives. In the meantime, it's best to book Spectrum Center parking in advance. The stadium was built to replace Charlotte Coliseum, which was demolished after less than 20 years of use. The arena was previously known as Charlotte Bobcats Arena from when it opened in 2005; it was named Time Warner Cable Arena from 2008 to 2016, when Time Warner Cable owned the naming rights. The venue was renamed Spectrum Center in 2016. In addition to being the lair of the Bobcats, the venue also hosts concerts, WWE Wrestling events and political rallies.
The Charlotte Bobcats that are based in Spectrum Center came into existence following the sale of Charlotte Hornets, the previous NBA team, to New Orleans. George Shinn, the founder and owner of the Hornets, was forced to sell the team by the city, temporarily leaving Charlotte without an NBA team. In consolation, the league promised the city a new team would be created in its stead. The Charlotte Bobcats were the resultant team, and lately they've been in flux.
The team that moved to New Orleans has since been renamed the Pelicans, which freed up the Hornets name. Team owner Michael Jordan requested a name change to the NBA, where the Bobcats would be renamed as the Hornets. In the nine seasons that the team has played, they have gotten to the playoffs only once, in 2010. The '12 Bobcats season was the worst in the NBA, winning seven games and losing 59, meaning fans that booked Bobcats parking saw a winning percentage of .106.
