I May Never See The New Orleans Hornets Play Basketball In Person


You think Jarrett Jack is disappointed...

With the NBA and the Players Association bickering and crying over each others stance on a new CBA I rolled my eyes and went along with my business. Each day I’m getting more and more disconnected from basketball because of this greed and selfishness being displayed by both sides. I really have removed myself from it in a similar manner to an NFL lockout. Now, my focus is on that.

But, I can’t help but think about the Hornets from day-to-day. One thought passed through my mind, “What if I never saw Chris Paul play for the Hornets?” and more importantly, “what if I never see the Hornets play in person?”

I’m very sad and almost depressed that I may never see the Hornets play in New Orleans, or at all. It’s a goal of mine to some day see them play with Chris Paul and David West on the team. Though it seems my goal is becoming a distant dream. As the NBA bickers, sourness reigns supreme among fans.

I am planning on coming to New Orleans some time in the near future, but will I be there for an NBA game at all?

If I go in December I doubt I’ll see the Hornets play, and that’s a shame because it’s been a long-time dream of mine. It is expensive to travel all the way from Australia.

The more I ponder on it, the more I question my investment into the NBA as a league. Why bother spending so much time, effort, attention, to something that’s only interested in robbing your pockets and leaving you filled with empty hope and short-lived excitement?

I don’t like where things are heading in the NBA, I don’t like the hard stance from both sides, I don’t like that Chris Paul will almost certainly have to be traded.

All I wanted was to watch an Idol before he disappeared, that’s not to much to ask.
