I sold all of my stuff a couple of yrs back.  None of the stuff fit anyway since it was all bought when I was in elementary and middle school.  I probably made more money from that stuff than I originally bought it for.

I don't have any clothes but I have a program from the playoffs with Zo and LJ and I still have the VHS copy of the game when Zo hit the shot that I taped off the TV.

I found a long-sleeve warm up that is black and purple, still fits.  I'm still looking for my old replica team shorts and practice jersey that I used to play ball in.

Let me preface this by saying that I was ten when I got a lot of this stuff... Now, I don't really have any clothes, but I have a a stuffed Hugo (cute, I know), a Hornets blanket, a stuffed hornets basketball, a vintage Hornets tool box (that in particular is worth quite a bit of money lol), and a few Hornets hats...

 

I also own a new pair of Jordan Retro 5 "Grapes", they match all my Hornets stuff lol.

 

I'm going to have to stock up next year.

I've got a hat signed by Anthony Mason. I waited in line at the old foot locker on Albermarle Rd. just before Independence and when my mother and I got to up to the front The guy who worked at foot locker said that they didn't have any hats and since I didn't bring anything for him to sign then we would have to buy a jersey or something. Before my mom could say ok Anthony reached down and pulled a hat out from under the table he was sitting at and signed it for me. I always remembered that and that hat has been sitting in a box in the attic at my parents house since. He got a bad guy reputation (mainly in NY) but that little gesture had me hooked as a Hornets fan. I was probably like 11 or something then.

    • Elbows too pointy. Would not bang.
    • On the surface this team seems greatly improved but in reality we added a geriatric at DE and SS. Our LT is bad enough that the Vikings thought getting Remmers in return was an upgrade, and our greatly improved offense includes a rookie RB who dominated the 5th best college conference and a hybrid RB/WR who isn't good enough to stick at either position. That being said, I'm hopeful it works out.
    • First, let me say that I pretty much only watch the NBA during the playoffs (or when I'm absolutely bored and channel surfing, which is very very seldom). I am really a fan of players and coaches and not necessarily teams except for the Spurs. That being said, I do support the Hornets as they are a North Carolina team---the "home" team, if you will.  The problem is I don't see any way that they will credibly compete for a championship (because they really haven't come close in franchise history). Gone are the days of Grand Ma Ma and Dell Curry, but even then one would be hard pressed to really believe. Unless they happen to draft a legitimate, and I mean legitimate, superstar that wants to be here, I can't see it. I go from year to year in June saying "Perhaps this is the year," but reality sets in during December.  Well, perhaps this is the year that they at least become credible. Monk was arguably the best pure shooter in the draft. Can he create his own shot---break 'em down and break some ankles to be a legitimate point guard or 2-guard? We will see. Bacon may be underrated. We will see. Does the other Superman in Charlotte have enough juice to make a credible run and get the Hornets over the hump. I don't know.  It's just hard to believe that the Hornets will actually become truly relevant when you look at their history, and that has to really suck as a hardcore fan.
