New Orleans is a dump full of gang banging thugs who will rob you and stick your belly with a knife for like 10 cents. I wouldnt just move the Hornets, Id demolish the entire city. Then hopefully 100 years from now when people move back there, they will go to work like the rest of us, and stop bitching and moning about the Gov. The town, the people and the story is old and sickening.

My nephew is nothing but a one of those San Antonio cry babies. He is still made because the Saints left his piss poor city, and now they are getting better support here in the Big Easy than they would have ever received there. Season ticket sellout both year the Saints have been back. Part of the reason they do not sellout here is because those of the thugs that play in the NBA only want to support the blacks kids here and not the whites, which consist of 90+% 0f their fans.

Very old story. Thanks for bringing it up right after we have our second sellout, and just before we get ready to host the NBA All-Star game. Your timing is impeccable. Journalism at its finest (sarcastic)

One problem I see is the lack of coverage in the Gulf South region. I live less then an hour away from N.O. Arena and have only been able to watch one televised game this year. The Hornets need to do a better job of promoting their product to the region as a whole. If the Hornets would target Southern Louisiana and Mississippi I would bet ticket sells would go up as would merchandise sells. Unfortunately most of the region as no access to watch them on television.
