Hornets still don't get it

Just a couple of days after stories came out of New Orleans about how the Hornets are trying to win back fans in south Louisiana with an open house comes this bit of news.

The Hornets worked out a possible draft pick, Thaddeus Young of Georgia Tech - in Oklahoma.

Do these people with the Hornets not understand they are playing their games in New Orleans next year? Do they not realize the New Orleans Saints have been embraced by the region for doing the very thing they Hornets haven't done which is return on a full-time basis and become leaders in the community?

This is hard to say as someone who has watched the Saints through the years, but the Saints, not the Hornets, are the model franchise in that town.
