After missing out on the playoffs last year for the first time in three seasons, the Hornets are shooting for another run at the fertile and fragrant valleys of the postseason. Fans will enjoy the view from one of the 17,188 seats at New Orleans Arena and marvel at the world-class athleticism, high-flying high fives, and the moves of Dance Cam participants. The Hornets are led by all-star point guard Chris Paul, whose dexterity and uncanny ability to juke the opposition make him an ideal subject for painting an in-game oil portrait. Today’s deal is part of the Hornets’ “I’m in NOLA” campaign, which collects a choir of locals conversing on their reasons for staying in New Orleans.
New Orleans Pelicans
Competitors in the Southwest Division of the NBA’s Western Conference, the New Orleans Pelicans regale the Big Easy’s hoops fans, led by three-time All-Star Anthony Davis. Egged on by the avian mascot Pierre, swarms of 17,000 fans surround the court inside Smoothie King Center, where a center-hung LED board displays live-action video and instant replays of referees' most spectacular cross-court jogs.
