Exclamation Drop the NO from the NOK

I was an 11 year old kid back in 91-92 when we drafted LJ. Even before we had a true star, when Rex Chapman, Kelly Tripuka, Robert Reid, and Dave Hoppen were suiting up for the Bugs, the Charlotte Coliseum was truly the most exciting arena in the NBA. 23,000 strong, sold out every night, led the league in attendance for 8 years in a row. When ZO hit the shot to knock Boston out for our 1st every playoff series victory in 93, I thought my eardrums were going to explode. Those were the days, those were fans. The few games I've been to in NO Arena have lacked any fanfare. The fans are fickle, uneducated, and generally disinterested. Oklahoma City reminds me so much of the Charlotte crowd, it kills me to think of us going back to NO. KEEP THE HORNETS IN OKC!!!
