Rivers Seeing Green


In 2012, New Orleans’ basketball team was celebrating a name change and two premier draft picks. One of the newcomers to the newly minted Pelicans was guard Austin Rivers. Unfortunately, the the party was short lived. After two and a half seasons of frustrating play, the Pelicans are shipping Rivers to Boston as a part of a three way deal according to league sources.


Hornets Hum Past Celtics, 90-78


It took the Hornets 28 games to crawl to their first six victories. The last six have only taken seven games. Wednesday’s win was a product of confidence, selflessness, and excellent coaching. It is absolutely a testament to Monty Williams that a squad this young and raw could handily defeat the Celtics on the second game of a back-to-back. New Orleans is now 13-26 for the season — a half game ahead of the Sacramento Kings.


Hornets Return, Comedian "Runs" for Owner


Tonight, the New Orleans Hornets return to the arena to face the Boston Celtics in their home-opener. As reported last week, canned music will be out replaced by Irvin Mayfield and a live jazz band playing local music courtside.

We're in!

Unfortunately, an owner is not in. Enter comedian Chris Trew of the New Movement. Trew, a NOLA native and lifelong Hornets fan, is running for owner of the team. His primary campaign tactic is producing a series of viral videos causing a stir on YouTube.
