stories are breaking that he's pretty much selling the team to local owner gary chouest and an announcment will be made in 10 days.

i told you guys this back in november, this is the only way the hornets will ever have a shot at winning a title.

10 years too late. Saw the article in the Observer, and even then they couldn't stop themselves from taking a shot at Bob and the 'Cats.

Shinn sucks balls. The Observer can't glorify him enough. He's no hillbilly, he's pure weasel. You only get that in a city boy.

he's a hypocritical piece of poo that's kept the hornets from ever really contending. you can't spend too much when your sole income is the team's bottomline...

don't be surprized if the hornets don't move again, either way shinn was a small fish in a big pound compared to most owners(including MJ)

It should have been obvious to you that Shinn was a huge problem when Charlotte ran the Hornets out of town and were promptly awarded a brand new team.

i don't wish harm to shinn in any way, because he does get credit for having the vision to bring a team to our city, it was just apparent that once the nba became more about the have and have not's he should have sold the team then. he paid 32 million for the team so any thing he gets is profit. New orleans no matter what is going to be a hard market to break even much less make a profit, even with a deep pocket owner

The only good thing Shinn did was bring Professional Sports to Charlotte.

As an owner, he sucked. He would trade away any decent talent we had.

As a person, he was a huge POS.

This is why Charlotte said that we would rather not have an NBA team than have one owned by Shinn.

The negative vote on the uptown arena was more of a shot at Shinn than anything else.

Wow, You really are a immature piece of poo.

Surprised he is selling, i always figured his kids would take over. Guess it didn't work out for them.

i don't think they have the money to take over the team and not sure if his relationship with them is all that good
