Thought I’d share a quick blog post from a New Orleans Times Picayune blogger who weighs in on the stalemate between OKC and the Hornets.
As most of you know by now, the Hornets did not release information on former Hornets season ticket holders in OKC so the city’s new team could give those ticket buyers first priority this time around. As a result, many of those same fans who were instrumental in helping this city catch the eye of the NBA and secure a permanent team will be thanked by being the last people to select their seats in some cases.
Although the writer doesn’t shed any more light on the situation from the Hornets’ perspective than Mike Baldwin did in his Sunday package, he calls the disagreement a “shame” that the OKC fans who supported the Hornets won’t be rewarded by the new team.
“What matters is that, in effect, the New Orleans Hornets and new Oklahoma team have teamed together to (unintentionally) screw the fans in Oklahoma City over,” the blogger writes.
