Part Two: What Are Our New Orleans Hornets Up To…?

Let's see what our New Orleans Hornets are up to...

A few weeks ago we checked in with our Hornets and what they’re up to via their individual Twitter streams. For the most part it seems like these guys are relaxing taking their time off with a great deal of satisfaction.

  • Chris Paul appears to be playing in some recreation league games between a number of NBA Superstars. To be honest I have little to no interest in these games. There’s no defense, they don’t try and it is not competitive what so ever. All the more reason for the NBA season to start so we can watch some real basketball.
  • Trevor Ariza is still on the West Coast doing his Golf thing. I couldn’t imagine Ariza playing golf what with his uncoordinated jumpshot style. Still I hope he had fun, it’s a hell of a frustrating game.
  • Carl Landry had a family reunion. I hope he and his family are well.
  • Quincy Pondexter is working hard this offseason he’s been working out on the West Coast. He pulled up the the gym apparently pumping Adele out of the car. Classy.
  • It was David West‘s birthday recently! Go and wish him a Happy Birthday. He’s now 31 I believe, so here’s to a few more years in a Hornet uniform!
  • All of the boys got fooled by a fake Willie Green page. Chris Paul helped them out, it’s now since been deleted.
  • Finally Marco Belinelli appears to be working his way back into the Italian national team. They’ve been working towards EuroBasket 2011 and Marco made the squad. In other news below is a video of Beli in a Nike ad. He seems to work very close with them as an ambassador.

Topics: Carl Landry, Chris Paul, David West, Marco Belinelli, New Orleans Hornets, Trevor Ariza, Willie Green

    Something interesting I’ve noticed… out of last year’s Hornets roster, the only player i’ve seen in big-name commercials besides CP3 is Marco. He’s still a work in progress, but I keep finding more and more reasons why I want the Hornets to keep him around… and this certainly doesn’t hurt.

  • JamesGrayson

    @patrickclay10 It’s a great point. The reason he’s in so many advertisements is because he’s huge in Italy. I’ve never really understood why exactly, but the Italians love him even to some extent more that other better players.

    @JamesGrayson Who knows, maybe Marco will be what brings the New Orleans Hornets to the level of international popularity the Charlotte Hornets once had. Or at least one of the reasons haha

  • Mr. West

    Haha fake Wilie Green. DWest and JJack both responded to that fake guy too. Took ole Chris to set em’ straight. You can’t make that up.

  • JamesGrayson

    Yeah haha, it was funny because “Willie” kept saying that he was working out in Detroit, then fooled Mo Pete. I love twitter haha

  • JamesGrayson

    @patrickclay10 One can hope. I still think we need a guy like Nick Young. But having both Young AND Belinelli will lead to a really good backcourt with Paul, Jack, Young and Beli.

  • Mr. West

    The funniest part is his name was the real willie green.
