Buzz builds as Hornets jerseys go on sale today

Charlotte Hornets replica jerseys will go on sale for the first time Thursday at the Hornets Fan Shop at Time Warner Cable Arena with the public being let in around 11 a.m.

Season ticket holders had the first shot to get a jersey with an exclusive pre-sale window Wednesday night.

But if you want to get in early, it's as easy as a follow of the Hornets on social media. Hornets say social media followers can get in the store three hours early, starting at 8 a.m.

The buzz has been building about the jerseys since the team unveiled them in June.

The Hornets Fan Shop will be the first place selling replica jerseys and will stay open until 8 p.m. Thursday.

Replica jerseys will be available in all three colors: white, purple and teal. Players available include Al Jefferson, Kemba Walker, Cody Zeller and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Additional player jerseys will be available in the coming months.

Kidd-Gilchrist will be signing autographs in the store from 6:30-7:30 p.m.
