If the last few paragraphs are your argument for not changing the identity, you dont know what it is about.
CP3 is talking about "perception" and yes this is changing in between the sports business people and the players which is no wonder if a team with a 12 Games winning streak comes to play against you. But this doesnt make the history go away for the (casual) Fan and also not the reporters, and thats what really thrives an emerging company.
You think changing the name and unis miraculously changes our past? You think people will forget the history just cause the name changed? LOL
And you're telling me I should take courses?
Yeah, we change the name everyone will laugh just like they're laughing at the the Hornets. LOL
You should have listened to the commentators of the last recent games of the Kings. If it would be so nice like you are trying to draw it in that context, they would not have talked 1/2 the game about how bad this Franchise history was (as it is). For every of your tries, there is a negative recent example (which you wont mention) and thus its not about listing 100s of them against each other up but about understanding it.
You mean the Kings who wanted to come here but couldn't? You mean the Kings who have been one of the worst teams the last decade? Those commentators from that bad team? Maybe you should worry more about who you are taking your arguments from instead trying to change something you have no control of.
