how did you become a hornets fan


were you not a fan of any NBA team before 2002, when the hornets relocated from charlotte?

or did you just abandon your previous NBA team when the hornets moved to NOLA?

re: how did you become a hornets fan


I was a casual NBA fan, followed the Magic because I lived in Florida for a little while during the Shaq/Penny years. I was an instant Hornets fan when they moved over. Didn't have enough allegiance to Orlando.

I actually was a Hornets and Shaq/Lakers/Magic fan before the Hornets moved here.

Loved Larry Johnson and Muggsy ...but I don't remember if I liked them before Space Jam or not...

Became a fan when they moved here. Before that was a (super)fan of the NBA in general.

My first basketball team was nicknamed the Hornets when I was 7, so I've always followed them somewhat. I was also a Bulls fan in the 90s.

I just liked basketball. I was all over the place. Then I went to a few games that first year and it was a lot of fun. Since then I keep following them and here I am now.

I didn't realize what the NBA was if you want to know the truth. I just heard about it in 2002 when these a-holes relocated and displaced my favorite team in all of sports . . . the New Orleans Brass. But, as a consolation, I was given first crack at center court tickets because I'd been a Brass season ticket holder. See, the Arena worked that way. It was a pretty good deal. Anyway, I looked into this NBA thing and realized it was professional basketball. What the frick? I followed the Celtics when I was a kid (for some reason, I didn't make the connection . . . "NBA" . . . professional basketball . . . go figure). So, I mean, I was rich and a real cool motherfricker (still am, by the way) and wanted a place to take my 'ho's from Rick's Cabaret and impress them in the Club, so what the frick? You know what I mean? So one night, one of my bitches was annoying the shite out of me so I decided to actually watch the game. And, damned if it wasn't pretty entertaining. So then I decided to learn who was on the team. And, shit, it just took off from there. God Bless America.

re: how did you become a hornets fan


I was a big NBA fan during the Jordan era but stopped following after that. I tried to get into the Hawks when I first moved to the ATL but it's really hard to get into that team when no one else in the city cares. When I moved back to LA I started following the Hornets, I jumped on the bandwagon just as the CP3 era ship was sinking and I've been hooked since.

The Jordan era Bulls had to be the most popular team of all time
