Bad sign in the Big Easy
The Hornets returned to New Orleans on Wednesday.
How’d it go?
Check out my video commentary or read here:
I want to believe that the Hornets will work in New Orleans.
After all that city has been through, it deserves to have something go well. The Hornets have a stout squad, a team that has all the earmarks of a playoff team. I hope that the Big Easy has a chance to experience that fun and that excitement this season.
I want the best for the Hornets there.
But after Wednesday night, I’m worried about their chances.
Wednesday was opening night for the Hornets. They tipped off the 2007-08 season in New Orleans, their first full season back in the Big Easy since Hurricane Katrina blew them all the way to Oklahoma City.
The opener was on Oklahoma City cable television, just as another 24 games will be this season. I tuned in about mid-way through the second quarter.
The first thing that struck me was how much it looked at first glance like Oklahoma City. The floor is the same, save the name of the city along the baseline. The uniforms are the same, save the city on the front.
