Byron Scott On Hornets Crowd
Hornets coach Byron Scott recently weighed in on the Hornets’ poor crowd support. He had this to say to the Times-Picayune:
“I guess everybody is a little disappointed. I’m not going to sit here and say I’m not disappointed. We would like to have 18,000 every night. The players would like that, but that’s not something that’s happening at this particular point. Are we disappointed? Yes, we’re disappointed after eight games. Do we expect for it to get better? Yes we do.”
The Hornets played their ninth game at New Orleans Arena last night and drew only 10,312 for the Detroit Pistons. That dropped their league-low attendance to 11,431.
For more perspective on what the crowds are like down there, there’s this from a Times-Picayune blogger from the Pistons game…..
“To give everyone a general idea of how many people appear to be in the building, section 304 appears to have a total of 3 people in it and I think they are now leaving their seats to sneak down into the lower sections of the arena. I seriously doubt anyone is going to even saying anything to them. The odds of them taking someone else’s seats are extremely low considering how many open seats there are.”
