The New Orleans Hornets' game in the New Orleans Arena against the Los Angeles Lakers is sold out. Sold out in less than a week. This, with no price break like Shinn's giving people in OKC.
Shinn is the worst owner in basketball; Benson is the worst owner in football.
Guess it's good we don't have a baseball team.
And they say we can't support a team. Well, we can, if you follow the words of Al Davis.
Just win, baby.
John DeShaizer of the Times Picayune is telling me that, according to Hornets officials, the game is not sold out. I told him that if you call 1-800-4NBA-TIX, there are no seats available for the Laker game, not even with the 3-game pack. He's not disputing what I say, he's just saying what Hornets officials are saying.
So maybe the Hornets are holding back tickets, possibly for the express reason of saying that the games are not sellouts.
Paranoid? Sure. But maybe it's just what we've come to expect from the worst owners in all of pro sports.
Well, now there are some tix available (nosebleeds only). So the Hornets are holding back tickets, this is confirmed. We don't know why, but they are.
