3 Things You Need to Know Today

1. #HORNETSBACK – Charlotte Bobcats are finally the Charlotte Hornets, again!! Yes, it is true. Fred Whitfield, COO of the Hornets stated, “Today (May 20, 2014) we complete a task that has never been accomplished before. Bringing a name back to its original market.” Social media and the internet exploded yesterday with excitement about the name change, from poll questions to throw back pictures of Muggsy, Grandmama and Zo, here are something’s you may have missed.

2. #NBADraftLottery – The NBA held their draft lottery last night and the fans are not too excited.  For the second year in a row and the third time in four years, the Cleveland Cavaliers will pick at the #1 spot in the 2014 draft.  This poses the question that ESPN.com Poll Center asked, “Does the NBA need to change its draft system?”  We come to find out that the people of Ohio don’t think so!

3. #TanakaTime ….not exactly – Star pitcher, Masahiro Tanaka, of the New York Yankees walked into Wrigley Field yesterday with a 34-0 record in his last 42 starts. Fortunately for AL East fans everywhere, the 16-27 Chicago Cubs, with Jason Hammel on the mound, served Tanaka his first loss since 2012.
