Bob Johnson looking to sell majority share

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.

I dunno. The Hornets didn't make the playoffs for 5 seasons. But you'd know that if you were actually a fan of the team, and not just a bandwagon fan. How loud did you cheer when they only won 18 games. (Their worst season here was 19 wins, their second season. How sad is that for you?)

The Bobcats had salary restrictions that the Hornets didn't have those three seasons. This was the first season we've had a real coach (we shipped the Hornets to you with a better coach than you have now) and no salary cap restrictions.

Without that lucky bounce of the lotto, we wouldn't have gotten LJ or Zo, and it would have been 10 years or longer before they made the playoffs. (Why is Charlotte always picking 2nd behind Orlando when we get the #2 pick?)

18 wins. That matches the total for the Bobcats their first year. Pathetic.

You do know our starting lineup that year mainly consisted of Dan Dickau, J.R Smith, Lee Nailon, Rodney Rodgers, and PJ Brown? It's a miracle that team even won 18 games, and in a way it's good. Without that year there is no CP3 in a Hornets uni.

I don't know much about Charlotte Hornets history, the same way an OKC fan doesn't know much about Sonics history, or a Sacramento fan about KC history. I'm however, a die hard New Orleans Hornets fan. I've been there through the opening win vs. the Jazz to the 58 point loss this year. I've been there though thick and thin since 2002. My knowledge of the Hornets inner workings and inside info is 100x that of my inside knowledge of the Saints.

And without CP3, they would be the Oklahoma Hornets.

You know more about the Hornets than the Saints, but you've had the Saints for 40 years?

Geez. I'm not even gonna touch that one.

I know more about the inner workings of the Hornets than I do of the Saints, I'm only 24 but I know my Saints history extremely well.

I don't have direct sources with the Hornets or anything like that, but I do know people who do and I post on a board that's notorious for breaking stories before they happen.

What do you know about the Jazz?

And since you know little about the Charlotte Hornets, I'd like to point out that most of my frustration is aimed at people that are mad at the Charlotte Bobcats because the Charlotte Hornets left town.

That's like beating your new girlfriend because the last one cheated on you.

I know the Jazz left because the owner, Sam Battistone, was Mormon and didn't have ties to New Orleans. New Orleans was experiencing the oil boom when the Jazz left and was courting the posibility of an MLB team so it had nothing to do with the market.

The team never won but Pistol Pete Maravich was very entertaining and sold tickets, so much so that the Jazz had crowds of 30k+ numerous times during the team's run.

I agree about the Bobcats, Charlotte fans need to get behind the team and forget about the Hornets. If they don't the city could lose out on yet another NBA team.

They're still hoping their high school sweetheart will come to her senses, and come back pregnant with someone elses baby and marry them.

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.

The Hornets have been around since 88 I think, while the Bobcats have been around since 04. The Hornets didn't make their first playoff appearance until 93. So, just shut your mouth.
