quote:This is exactly my story. I was a huge Rockets fan during the Olajuwan era. When the Hornets moved to NOLA I slowly adopted them but pulled equally for the Rockets. As time passed and all the players I cared about from the Rockets retired or moved on, and I just flat-out always disliked Steve Francis, I drifted away and really fell in love with the Hornets. Now I still like when the Rockets do well but they're a clear second team for me.
I was a Rockets fan due to the majority of my family living there and the proximity. When the Hornets came to NOLA I instantly liked them as much as the Rockets. I now talk shite to my family who are all Rockets fans and have grown to dislike them.
Diehard Hornet/Pelican now
