Shh!! Don't tell anyone from Oklahoma about the attendance problems!
They've constantly berated N.O. about the Hornets attendance, simply because they want them to stay. Well, boo effin hoo for Oklahoma -- the team is back here now.
The Marlins and Hornets both have cheap owners, for one. We were last in the league in 04-05 when the team went 18-64, and a Final Four college team could have beaten them. We got Chris Paul, lost all the Charlotte players, and then sales started flying during the Summer of 2005. That all gets lost because of Katrina.
The team plays 6 games in NO this season... one a month... and we sell out 3 or 4, and come close on the others. The Okie press (worst newspaper in America in 1999 says Columbia), and their fans slam NO again for that. One game a month, no advertising, who knew except the diehards?
The team is coming back, and season ticket sales are reportedly doing well.
Didn't they try to take a swipe at the Fish too? Then again, they have NOTHING to do in the ugly brown open plains, unlike Florida and NO. Scroo them.
