They didn't have an NBA team when I lived there (moved 9 years ago).

That's Charlotte as far as I'm concerned anyway.

And the last REAL home team was the Jazz (who need to change their name since Utah has nothing to do with Jazz).

I used to go see'em with Pistol Pete as a kid.

That's true. I don't think the hornets will last long in new orleans anyhow. They should have just kept them in oklahoma. The fans there were way more devoted than the new orleans fans have been in the past few years.

I think NOLA might have been okay if Katrina hadn't happened, but since it did, it's not even a discussion now. :o

If the Sonics' new management can't reach a deal with the city of Seattle of a new arena deal by this Oct., Oklahoma City could very well be the Sonics' new home city in a couple of seasons.

As far as nickname is concerned, ain't that funny in a way that, the beehive state of Utah got a team not named the Hornets, while the home of Jazz got a team not named Jazz...

I don't think so. The year before katrina the hornets had the lowest attendance in the nba. something around 14000 if i remember correctly. There are wnba teams that do better than that.

14,000 is actually more than I'd expect that place to hold for them to be honest. :o

I don't know about you guys, but I only got time to sit down and finished Dream Theater's The Making of SC dvd last night. Guess what I noticed? In at least two occassions (check the part about the recording of The Dark Eternal Night), I saw Petrucci was wearing the 2005 Spurs Championship Tee. While Portnoy was wearing that Marbury jersey (he actually wore the Knicks shorts as well).

A Bulls jersey? Maybe he likes Chicago then... cuz the few times I saw him in Phoenix, he either wore black or a Knicks jersey.

Not really, man. Back in 2002, he wore a #1 Knicks jersey with no name on the back. Then I am pretty positive I saw him wore another #1 Knicks jersey with his name on it at another show.

Yeah, sadly... and for some reasons I just NEVER liked the Knicks. I don't know why, I just never liked that team regardless of personnels. Maybe their color scheme have something to do with it? I can't say for sure.

I know why I hated them and still do hate them... I'm from chicago and am a bulls fan. simple as that. All I can say is that isaiha is going to have to do a lot better than lazy fat ass eddy curry and jailblazer zach randolph to make them a contender again. When will that dumbass learn that a player's attitude and personality is equally as important as their skills. Oh wait thomas is the moron who though steve francis would help his young players, what am I saying? God how does he still have a job?

I've never been a Knicks fan, simply because I don't like teams from New York for no particular reason. I absolutely hate the Yankees even though I just hate baseball in general.

@ Mr. Blackcock or anyone with an answer to this question.

The Knicks signed Jared Jeffries to a 5-year $30M deal last summer. And my question is, how the hell did they sign him when they are already paying for luxury tax! I thought teams with that kind of high payroll don't even have their mid-level exception?

That's why it is called a exception I believe azyiu. And regardless of any tax penalties the knicks owner has the money to spend. He is paying isiah remember? haha.

What I don't get is how they could have such a high payroll and still suck. You'd think they'd spend all that money on some good players that could actually make a difference. I have no idea what Isaiah is thinking.

They do have good players. The problem is not the talent. It is the coaching and managment. All thomas did was go out there and stack up names. curry, crawford, marbury, richardson, jefferies, francis, randalph, james, ect. He went out and signed any half way decent name or free agent. He didn't bother to think about chemistry. Which at this point it is obvious this team has none. Honestly even with two of the most talented post players in the game this team wont do more than .500 ball and a first round exit next season. They don't have proven winners at the nba level or players who are determind to win imo. I watched crawford and curry half ass it for 4 season apiece here in chicago. Marbury has won 1 playoff game in 12 seasons. Their core knows nothing about winning or how it is done at this level and what's worse is they don't have managment that is concerned with that. They need to focus on bringing in talent with the right attitudes from winning systems. If you look at the succesful teams in the nba it starts with that. Stacking up a team of egos isn't going to get you anything but a bunch of egomanics fighting over who is going to be the star. While they are fighting over who gets the ball the other team is kicking the shit out of them.

^ I cannot agreed with you more, well said.

Also, the Portland Jailblazers were managed and put together the same way back in the late 90's. They were better in a sense, cuz at least they were able to win some big games out west. That said, chemistry is a big thing, man. Once they started losing a few games, they just couldn't get back on track at all. Oh, and I still remember what then Portland GM John Nash said. He went:"I am not a Chemistry major" What a famous last word kind of quote!

Well when I said good I meant more along the lines of Lebron, Kobe, or KG good. With all that money they're throwing at moderately good players they could probably afford to have the whole Eastern Conference All-Star Team starting lineup.
