I'll ask.

I figure if I get to ask a question, it'll be about how long Horners merch will be available and when Pelicans merch hits the street.

Others in case.someone asks that? Better ones?

My guess is the local stations will carry it. I'll be looking for an online stream on WWL or Nola.com or one of those sites. I highly doubt FSNO will carry it. I could see the possibility of ESPN carrying part of it if they feel the rebrand is big enough news to replace Outside the Lines or whatever is on at that part in the afternoon.

That's all my guess though. I'm sure we'll hear more as the day goes on and 42 can give us more details

My hope is someone streams it. I would assume others will be quicler to post pictures etc. I'm more of a listener.

I can try to video it and post it afterwards. Would you guys be interested in that?

It might be kinda junky since it'd be from a phone or tablet.

If there is no stream, then sure. Though now that everyone knows what this press conference is about it seems like someone has to stream this

That's really good but you better have a backup because that's going to be the first question asked.

How about a hypothetical one, IF they don't show the court. Ask about how the court will look and more importantly, if there will be Arena changes due to the change in team colors.

My hope is someone streams it.

Arena renovations on the interior mostly happen this offseason, and that the branding will be incorporated into things like signs, colors, etc.

If there is a naming rights deal (and this is the prime time to do one, prior to the All-Star break, some of that may be incorporated as well. They're not going to make the escalators look like a crawfish if it's a seafood company or something really baked in (and half-baked) like that, but they can do little removable appointments.

I'll tuck the court question away and ask if it seems like this is that mature.

I'd be shocked if WVUE Fox 8, which is owned by Benson, didn't stream it.

They streamed Payton's impromptu presser in mobile yesterday.

Perhaps ask about alternate uniforms and what will be done with regards to throw backs. Has Charlotte contacted about acquiring the hornets name.

Exactly. As I've been saying the whole time, the name means nothing if you don't end up with a good color scheme/logo

I'm not to sold on the red/blue/gold scheme we keep hearing about. So hopefully I'm wrong on that and the shades they use can change my mind

That's one think I was thinking of, though I'd have to imagine they'd keep them.


Speaking of those, shouldn't we be busting them out soon?

Ask if there's been any feedback from the players. If the players are available for a question ask AD or EG what players around the league think about Pelicans.

I don't care what you ask. Just give me a shout out in one of your questions.
