Hornets still beat the poo out of the Bobcats franchise.

The Hornets get worse every year, they won't make the playoffs next year.

You have absolutely no fuging clue what you're talking about. George wanted to be here and offered to pay for the majority of the new stadium and still rent it from the city to have them play there. The coliseum was out dated. Hints they blew it up and made a stadium for the Bobcats. But thats ok with you guys right? I mean we had to pay for it. George not living here? You're a joke. Quit making poo up King. He was here almost everyday buddy. I saw him every week so i know he was around. His wife had his Florida house. He just didn't go to the games. The rape thing was crap. He did not rape that girl. She wanted money. Just like the girl that said Tyson raped her and the girl that said Anthony Mason raped her. He cheated on his wife which was the embarrassment. Alonzo didn't want to be here so you guys bitching about that really doesn't matter. LJ was something that was going to happen anyway. Had he not done it you guys would be bitching about him not paying for his players. I love how you and porn run your mouth's without having a clue. Quit believing everything you read in people magazine and the local newspaper.

Zo did want to be here, Shinn didn't want to pay him. LJ happened alright, to the tune of 84 million. And Shin was in town, but he didn't go to the game? That's still an absentee owner.

Did LJ's contract ruin the NBA or not? Do you know what you're talking about?

Divac went on to support a powerhouse Sacramento team. We were lucky to ditch LJ's contract and get the poor man's version in Anthony Mason. Glen Rice won a title with the Lakers after he left. Eddie Jones had his best season in Miami after we traded him for Jamal Mashburn. What a beastly job Bass did there. Anthony Mason had an all star appearance after he was traded with Jones for Mashburn. That's two starters for Washedupburn and PJ Brown.

I could go on an on, but its pretty apparent who doesn't know what they're talking about here.

Take those teal colored glasses off.

The Bobcats would kill for 49 wins and a playoff appearance. Not to mention the Hornets have one of thee NBA's biggest stars locked into a max deal.

In five seasons in New Orleans, the Hornets have made the playoffs four times while the Bobcats have no appearances.

I didn't know that the Hornets had Dwight Howard, Carmello Anthony, Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, Dewayne Wade or Kevin Garnett locked up.

Top 3? lolzol

Really buddy. I mean really. Zo hated it here from the start. He also hated LJ and wanted out. OK you got me on Divac's i forgot about his ok run with the Kings. Rice played one season with the Lakers so thats how he got his title. Real hard when you got Kobe and Shaq. He then spent the rest of his career bouncing around one year at a time with different teams. Amazing career after the Hornets btw. Mason played one year with the heat and made all-star team only because there were injuries to the Heat and the All-star team. It was his only All-star game. After that year he spent 2 years with Bucks and left the league because of injuries. Another amazing career after the Hornets. Jones had his best year with us but wanted to play for Miami. That was one of our best trades ever. Mashburn got us the farthest we had ever been in the playoffs and was a game away from East finals. While jones minutes points and everything dipped after he left us. Another amazing career. So who doesn't know what they are talking about again? Yeah you might want learn your poo before you talk it.

Mashburn was washed up when he got here. The Hornets kept trading their superstars down. Zo for Glen Rice. LJ for Mason. Eddie Jones and Mason for Mashburn and PJ Brown. They let Divac walk for nothing after trading Kobe Bryant for him.

Zo did hate LJ, who wouldn't? The man was making more than Michael Jordan, and Zo deserved more than LJ. I'm sure Zo hated Shinn, as well. That would become a recurring issue for players, coaches, and management. Seemed everyone stayed two years, realized Shinn was a sociopath, and said "Get me out of here."

Then after they left Charlotte, they traded Baron Davis for Speedy Claxton and Dale Davis. Davis really sucked after he left Charlotte.

Don't forget the ugly firing of Dick Harter after he lost control of the team, then Bristow resigned, Cowens resigned, and Silas was dumped. Two successful coaches that couldn't put up with Shinn's retardation and one that didn't deserve what he got.

Even the NBA acknowledged that Shinn had alienated fans here in Charlotte, and the franchise would not succeed here with him as a majority owner.

If I could give anyone credit for the success the Hornets did manage to have while they were here, I would give it to Zo, Cowens, and Silas. Three people that Shinn shafted until they bled.

But keep on romanticizing. They never made it out of the 2nd round. Their playoff series record is 5-11, and even Chris Paul can't get them out of the 2nd round.

George Shinn had it made here in Charlotte, but he couldn't keep a team together, and drove himself right on out of town.

It was a huge black eye for Charlotte and the Hornets, and the Hornets have no one to blame but themselves.

It took the Hornets 6 seasons to get a true superstar in Alonzo Mourning. The Bobcats have been around for 5.

Waving Chris Paul around after 20 odd seasons is pretty sad, like trying to claim the Saints are a dynasty in the making after they finally won a playoff game.

Keep in mind that the Hornets are not an expansion team and that the ownership and staff have been with the team more than twice as long as you've had the Hornets.

The Hornets, when they left Charlotte were already a playoff tested franchise.

All I'm saying is that you cannot compare the two at this point.

They traded Davis for cap space, it wasn't about getting value back in the form of players. Davis' value was shot anyway, he was hurt all the time and there were and still are questions today about his love for the game. A lot of people who know him believe he's just using basketball as a stepping stone to becoming a big time producer in terms of money and knowing folks.(another reason he's wanted to be in L.A)

Bristow was a solid GM, but he was fired by the team president(who was brought in by the NBA) because he did not want to help in marketing and other departments of the franchise.

How long is the expansion excuse going to be waved? The vast majority of players from the 1st few years are gone as well as the coaches. It only takes but 1-3 years to turn aorund in the NBA. The Hornets went from winning 18 games to winning 56 and a division title in the span of three seasons.
