Jason has a little something for all those who said “nay” or something like it . . .

Kiss my Creole blue ass.

I just think the Hornets' history should be respected. I totally disagree that change the franchise's name, but I will never stop to love New Orleans because of it.

It's not our history. Send that back to Charlotte. That name never should have left North Carolina, just as the Jazz should have never left NOLA.

They're two trades that would be interesting once the New Orleans ? draft Davis or Gilchrist.The Celtics will want our pick 10th overall trade Okafor,Jarrett Jack and Xaiver Henry for the Celtics 20th overall and 42nd overall i doubt Rondo is not going to be in this trade just to let you know.Then trade Ariza to Golden State for their 29th overall pick.If they get Gilchrist then draft Fab Mello at 20,Draymond Green at 29 and Scott Machado at 42 Possible roster with free agents C Kaman or Javele McGee-Mello-Smith PF Humphries or Bass-Ayon-Green SF Batum-Gilchrist-Aminu SG Gordon-Fields-Bellineli PG Dragic-Vasquez-Machado OR Same trades but with Davis drafted at 20 Tony Wroten,at 29 C.J Leslie and at 42 Robert Sacre C Kaman or McGee-Smith-Sacre PF Davis-Humphries or Bass-Ayon SF Batum-Aminu-Leslie SG Gordon-Belineli-Fields PG Dragic-Vasquez-Worten

Yeah, I think the waiting time should be allowed to be waived when a team moves or gets a new owner. If a team wants to just change a name just to change a name, then no, let the waiting period stand.

:) What's with the name change? Any news on that? Just change the team colors to black and gold and keep the name as is. A hornet from a bee family should have black-yellow colors anyway, right? This would also allow the city to maintain unity in colors for both Saints and Hornets.

Sounds like Benson is asking for a waiver for the 25 month waiting time as part of the sale. There is evidence that the might get it. Regardless, it'll happen by tip-off 2014-2015. One would think they'd want to have it in place for the 2014 ASG so Brand X gets the benefit going forward. It was also raised to me that the ASG would be a good unveiling event. I'm not sure if they'd do that mid year, but it's reasonable.

lol. I think things are looking up. Our current roster isn't as bad as the record, we have a local owner, a future All-Star game, and I have a feeling that the ping pong balls will be magically guided by Stern's hand to give us the #1 pick.
