1st Post-Katrina Pro Sporting Event In N.O Tonight

Thu Mar 09, 2006 9:29 am

The NBA Hornets are returning home for the first time this season when they take on the Lakers at the New Orleans Arena. Tip off is at 7pm Central.

Good to see the Hornets back home (if only for 3 games), and good to see the fans come out and support the team...the game is sold out...well over 17,000 will be in attendance.

Welcome home for the Hornets. Enjoy it while you can, I expect that the Hornets won't be long for the Big Easy unless the NBA chips in with $$$ to help the team.

Well, I have my doubts too, even though Stern just said again that they will be back full time in '07-'08. I guess we'll see. Supposedly we are a lock for the '08 All Star game.

Well, the Hornets lost 113-107...entertaining game though....sell out crowd of 17,744....Denzel Washington and Val Kilmer were in attendance (in town filming a movie)...overall, it was a great night for the city.
