Interview with Stern About New Orleans NBA Franchise


LINK

NBA Commissioner David Stern will be in New Orleans on Wednesday to attend the New Orleans Hornets-Lakers game at the New Orleans Arena. In a phone interview Tuesday afternoon, he talked about his relationship with owner Tom Benson, the Chris Paul for Eric Gordon trade and why he likes New Orleans so much and why he supported the Hornets remaining in the Crescent City.

T-P: It’s still early but do you have any concerns about attendance at the Arena?

Stern: You know, what you’re suffering from is the team that doesn’t quite have his identity together yet and is losing games. So the proposition for walk-up is not as compelling as it might otherwise had been, but I have no concerns. Putting together a winning streak, I’m sure your fans will be ready to go. Between Anthony Davis and Eric Gordon, it’s easy to see that you had a lot of players who were figured for backup roles being forced up to starting. That’s a good thing because they get a chance to develop and show you what they have. We’re getting an opportunity to see all kinds of interesting players. I think in a normal course of events, I think you might have had the sixth man, the Rookie of the Year and lot of other things. Look at us we got all kind of teams that are having issues. Steve Nash for the Lakers, Andrew Bynum for the 76ers, Eric Gordon for the Hornets.

My guess: He's in town to see Kobe cross 30,000 regular season points.

29948 before tonight.

39 tonight.

So 29987 going into tomorrow's game.

Maybe he has other business, too. I think the rebrand stuff is just a coincidence.

Benson is going to wake up with a dead pelican (not the "news" blog)

that would be one hell of a coincidence.

A world without coincidences is far more unlikely than one with them.

great read
Also I'm really impressed with how much Stern knows about New Orleans and the whole situation especially with our players. He is showing Aminu some love

Sorry.

Really, though, I think it's a coincidence. I hope we get some good scoop on the rebrand (if real), naming rights, 2014 ASG, something. It'd be nice.
