New Orleans Pelicans Tickets

It was the 30th of October, 2002 when the first season under the new name New Orleans Hornets begun. This first game was an instant victory over the Utah Jazz with 100 against 75. This game was the first NBA regular game played in New Orleans in 17 years, and what a great way to start. A 100 to 75 win is the perfect way to start selling big numbers of Hornet tickets although the sale of Hornet tickets was always good, when a move is infolded the more positive attention the better.

The Hornets come into the 2011-2012 NBA season with Chris Paul at point, Emeka Okafor and David West in the front court, and Trevor Ariza on the wing. One more wing player and this is a solid starting five; however, the contracts of Paul, Okafor, and West are eating up way too much cap room. It would be nice to resign post player Carl Landry, but the front office is likely going to have make a choice between him and West.

If an amnesty clause is indeed included on the final labor agreement, I would expect Okafor to be player let go. His contract is worth $12.6 million this upcoming season, but he has never quite lived up to his billing as a number two pick. Okafor is a solid defender and a potential double-double guy, but in no way is he worth eight figures.

New Orleans cannot make a move until they know exactly what comes of this labor agreement standoff. Will there be a hard cap? Will there be an amnesty clause? Will there be new contract restrictions? Little can be known for certain about this upcoming season schedule, so fans are buying Hornets tickets simply to place their collective faith in the hands of Chris Paul, who they expect to reassert himself as the best point guard in the NBA.

New Orleans Hornets History

The New Orleans Hornets began is franchise history as the Charlotte Hornets. Charlotte is a hotbed for basketball, so as the NBA began to expand following the incredible success of the 1980s, this became an attractive market. Unfortunately, the Hornets would never quite build the fan base for professional basketball, as the college game proved dominant in the region. Still, Larry Johnson, Alonzo Mourning, Glen Rice, and Muggsy Bogues became the base for a team that would reach the playoffs five times during the 1990s.

Despite boasting an exciting new point guard named Baron Davis, the Hornets moved to New Orleans due to low attendance figures thanks to controversial personnel moves by owner George Shinn that only alienated the fan base. The Hornets found an eager city waiting to watch professional basketball in New Orleans. Tragically, Hurricane Katrina ravaged the city in 2005, making the city incapable of supporting the franchise. The NO Hornets temporarily moved to Oklahoma City and became an inspiration behind the play of Chris Paul.

Paul played beyond his years, quickly establishing himself as the premier point guard in the NBA. Hornets tickets returned to New Orleans for the 2007-08 season. That years, the team won the Southwest Division and reached the Western Conference Semifinals before being eliminated by the Spurs in seven games. Injuries have hampered the club of late, but TheSeats has New Orleans Hornets tickets to New Orleans Arena for the new season with Paul back at 100 percent.
