Happy Friday y’all.
- Anthony Davis, who won the NCAA national championship in New Orleans in March, appeared to welcome an opportunity to play for the Hornets yesterday after the draft lottery. Quoth Davis: ““This can kind of bring joy back to New Orleans. I guess I get lucky when I go there.”
- The Times-Picayune reports that season ticket sales have been brisk since the lottery. There’s even a quote from Hornets-fan-poseur-extraordinaire “Little Wayne” – “Anthony Davis to the Hornets! I’ movin bak home.” Okay, sure.
- This isn’t Hornets-related but CharlotteBobcats.com will probably make you laugh.
- Continuing on the subject of humor, a CBS “column” suggested the Hornets explore a #1 pick for Dwight Howard trade. I think not linking this one is for the best.
- (For the record, not linking any conspiracy stuff either. There were representatives from every lottery team, a private accounting firm, and prominent members of the media present during the lottery. If someone seriously thinks that every team in the league (extending to previous years) is complicit in a massive conspiracy that shifts league balance annually, good for you).
