re: how did you become a hornets fan


I was a big bulls fan too. It was hard to watch the bulls and not be in awe of Michael Jordan. I just wanted to soak in every game he played because it was something special and I knew it wouldn't last forever.

Became a hornets fan when they moved to Nola but did enjoy all the good players they had in Charlotte.

Yep. And I remember someone from the league office saying . . . "Big hat, no cattle" when referring to the potential owners.

No doubt. That ownership group was shady.

Never really followed until CP3 was drafted. After that I slowly picked it up and began to love them. Bower FTW

Was a jazz fan when I was growing up. Big Stockton and Malone fan. Didn't even really register with me that they use to be a LA team. I mean, I knew but it wasn't the reason. Then I stopped watching for a while and became a hornets fan cause they were here.

re: how did you become a hornets fan


I was 8 when the Hornets moved to New Orleans so I had no prior knowledge of the NBA and that's around the time I started watching ESPN. Became a Hornets fan off the bat because they are obviously my home team. I like many players in the NBA but can only truly support the Hornets. Was like 10 when the D-Wade led Heat beat us in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference 1st Round in 03 or 04.

Been a die hard since, now ready for this Pelicans era to begin as soon as this season ends.

Grew up a Bulls fan, but my uncle was a big power player in getting the team to New Orleans and held a high ranking position within the organization for the first three years.
