New Orleans Hornets History
In 1988 the Charlotte Hornets entered the NBA, getting their name from a quote by British Lord General Cornwallis, who referred to Charlotte as "a veritable nest of hornets," due to its resistance to the British troops. The team remained in Charlotte until the 2002-03 season, at which point the franchise moved to Louisiana, and the team officially became the New Orleans Hornets. The New Orleans Hornets were forced to move to Oklahoma City after Hurricane Katrina ravaged their Louisiana hometown in 2005, but they returned to the Big Easy for the 2007-08 season.
Hornets’ fans have seen a number of NBA stars don the team’s colors, such as Glen Rice, Barron Davis, and most recently Chris Paul. While the newly relocated New Orleans Hornets enjoyed a number of successful seasons led by Paul, most notably the 2007-2008 season when they won the Southwest Division, management decided to shake things up by trading Paul to the Los Angeles Clippers, and acquiring talented guard Eric Gordon. With their first overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, the Hornets selected highly touted forward Anthony Davis, and signed forward Ryan Anderson following his breakout season with Orlando in 2011-2012. The Hornets will certainly be an exciting team to watch this year, so purchase your New Orleans Hornets tickets to catch all the action!

The New Orleans Hornets' mascot Hugo is, you guess it, a hornet! This purple and teal hornet has the ability to morph into one of two alter egos, "Super Hugo," the three-time NBA Slam Dunk Champion, or "Air Hugo," who helps "sting" the other team during timeouts. Hornets fans at New Orleans Arena enjoy Hugo's antics at all of the team's home games, so join in on the fun and get your Hornets tickets today!
