    Here is my only question(s) for Dell Demps:

    What are the plans for the Center position?
    Amnesty Okafor?
    Re-sign Kaman?
    Draft a center? (Eyes on Drummond?)
    Or sign another free agent center? (Maybe Spencer Hawes?)

    What’s the plan?

    UK fan here. You guys are gonna love him. He is all they say. Your fanbase has just grown dramatically. We aren’t fairweather, we just follow our guys, and he is quite possibly our best ever.

    Go Hornets!

    OMG There is not enough excitable profanities in this world that I could say in a span of minutes that came with the excitement of that pickup.

    is live chat still going? can we just live chat and yell at each other in excitement for a couple days? or until the 28th?

      Been there . . . .

    • NoJoke

      May 31, 2012 at 12:01 pm

      How about a unibrow fan section at the Hive?

    ANTHONY DAVIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  29. hornetshornets

    May 30, 2012 at 7:57 pm

    This is so exciting! I hope this is the beginning of a Spurs-like dynasty!!!

  30. jmbell

    May 30, 2012 at 7:58 pm

    So now the question is, do who do we go with at 10? Lillard, Zeller, Marshall, or someone else?

    • SP

      May 30, 2012 at 8:00 pm

      How about trading it for Kyle Lowry?

      • jmbell

        May 30, 2012 at 8:05 pm

        Along with Jack or someone else? that works for me.

        I think AD will be coming to a good situation, assuming the Hornets retain most of our veterans. Show him the ropes, teach him how to be a pro. That alone would dramatically decrease the chances of busting. Who knows what will happen if he goes to Charlotte.

      • Nik

        May 30, 2012 at 8:08 pm

        I’m not completely sold on this #1 pick….hahahha

      • Jason Calmes

        May 30, 2012 at 11:28 pm

        Yeah. I want the zeroth pick, but I’ll take the halfth pick if it came down to it.

      • jmbell

        May 30, 2012 at 8:13 pm

        Yeah, you have to be skeptical, but let’s hope for the best.

      • jmbell

        May 30, 2012 at 11:40 pm

        LOL @ 42. BTW, do you mind if we still call you that? sorry, you will never be Jason Calmes to most people here.

      • Jason Calmes

        May 31, 2012 at 12:17 am

        My friends call me . . . i can’t type that here.

        I’m 42 to all those who wish to call me 42 (or Dr. 42 when you are feeling formal).

        Unless you are old school . . . then I insist.

  31. jmbell

    May 30, 2012 at 8:02 pm

    This reminds of when David Robinson got hurt, the Spurs became a lottery team, won #1, and the rest is history. If Gordon doesn’t get hurt, (along with 70% of the rest of the roster, the Hornets aren’t in this situation.

  32. jmbell

    May 30, 2012 at 8:11 pm

    Also, if Davis and the Hornets pan out, I think it erases any doubts of Stern blocking the Laker trade. If we win rings with AD, this minor speed bump of a season won’t even be remembered, even if we had made the playoffs with the Laker trade.

  33. RobertM320

    May 30, 2012 at 8:14 pm

    And won’t it be sweet when we win rings before CP-Me!

  34. Dan

    May 30, 2012 at 8:15 pm

    So how many of you cheering for the Hornets to lose at the end of the season feel like complete douchebags now? Because you should.

    • nolahog

      May 30, 2012 at 8:53 pm

      F*@k the tank!!!

      • Jason Calmes

        May 30, 2012 at 9:15 pm


        And suck my tank.

  35. jmbell

    May 30, 2012 at 8:16 pm

    One more thing. I know this is off topic, but I can’t find anywhere else to ask it. Any news on the rebrand?

    • Thomas

      May 30, 2012 at 9:55 pm

      According to the interview with NBA TV, Tom Benson still wants it. The interviewer was like “You landed the top pick. Maybe you shouldn’t change the nickname with all that luck.” Benson responded “hahahahaha I brought the luck.”

      only Benson would

      • jmbell

        May 30, 2012 at 11:41 pm

        haha yep… and thanks for the update.

  36. Matthew

    May 30, 2012 at 8:21 pm

    Now we just need to shift all of our focus to resigning Eric Gordon. Gordon and Davis next year is going to be exciting to watch!

    • SP

      May 30, 2012 at 8:49 pm

      So excited about having a team worth watching again! Davis is the first ever number 1 pick for the New Orleans Hornets, I can’t wait to watch this team grow with the unibrow. Just from twitter it seems like a lot of the veteran guys are excited, particularly J-Jack…

      • Thomas

        May 30, 2012 at 9:58 pm

        The Hornets actually had the 1st pick in the 1991 draft and picked Larry Johnson. Both of their 1st picks have the most common first and last names haha.

      • Thomas

        May 30, 2012 at 9:59 pm

        oh wait, you said New Orleans Hornets… I guess you’re right!

      • Jason Calmes

        May 30, 2012 at 11:26 pm

        They were worth watching this year, to me.

  37. mojart

    May 30, 2012 at 8:49 pm

    hoping drummond or barnes or rivers still be available at #10….hoping we can pry dwill hir in big easy!

    May 30, 2012 at 8:55 pm

    Who was that smokin blonde interviewing Monty on ESPN?

    • Jason Calmes

      May 30, 2012 at 9:14 pm

      7 of 9 was my comment at Manning’s.

  39. J

    May 30, 2012 at 11:20 pm

    Tony Davis is coming

  40. NoJoke

    May 31, 2012 at 8:23 am

    So this is why Stern vetoed the Lakers trade.
