2008 All-Star Game in New Orleans?

its a tough call, im glad that stern has shown loyalty to revitalizing new orleans. But at the same time the fans of oklahoma city have shown that they deserved a shot at a franchise. The only question would be whether or not OKC would support a time after the newness has worn off and the hornets keep losing like they typically have in the past.

Loyalty has nothing to do with it. All this New Orleans talk is just drumming up good PR. It's pretty much assured that the fanbase of the region as well as corporate sponsorship will plummet, so the only reason that there's talk of returning is just for the news it generates.

Who says OKC has to lose the team for the ASG to be in New Orleans? Neutral site games aren't a bad thing.

What he said...

The NBA did not say anything about the Hornets moving back to NO, they simply said the '08 ASG will be there.

Remember where the '07 ASG is.

good point, but it would be quite a tease to have the all star game in new orleans and not let them keep the franchise.

I look at it this way-before the hurricane came through and cut the metro population in half the Hornets had no fans. How have the events of the last 6 months changed that?

In OKC, the Hornets have fans aplenty-I don't think the team is leaving.

Putting the All-Star Game in New Orleans is both the NBA "doing the right thing" and taking advantage to have a 2-3 day party in one of the biggest party cities in the country.
