Once-decimated Hornets now one of NBA's most promising franchises


A really cool article from CNN that discusses the Hornets in depth (and the fairest article I've read on the team from a national publication in quite some time). It also hints that the team is looking to remove its Hornets namesake and give itself a new nickname more endearing to the city of New Orleans. As a Hornets fan (from their Charlotte days), it's not something I'm incredibly in favor of but it's something that entirely makes sense. Anyways, pretty long read but a good one. And, by the way, Monty Williams is getting universal love from people this season. It's even mentioned in this article how well he's done and it goes to show, again, that the new ownership would be best served keeping the front office intact.
