New Orleans has waited 23 years for N.B.A. basketball to return. Not you or any other malcontent Hornet player will ruin the return of the N.B.A. to New Orleans. If your plan is for the New Orleans fans to rally around you and your faulty ego, then you are wasting your time.
If you want so bad to stay in Charlotte, sign on with the Sting. Then you will be in good company with others that have monthly hormonal swings.
New Orleans does not care if go to another team. From the posts on this board, it is clear that there will not be the uproar of protest against George Shinn that was done in Charlotte.
I am sure there are a few New Orleans Police officers who feel the same. Therefore, you can plan on a free escort out of town (if you ever show up).
Just because you played in this years all-star game does not mean you ARE a true all-star. You are an all-star by default. You took someone's place.
Maybe if you opened your mouth about your feelings we might be able to understand. However, you choose to hide behind your agent so you can TRY to make your agent the bad guy.
In New Orleans, as Saints fans, we have been through it all. We have had an astronaut general manager, a general manager who's mother fired him from the Rams, and a head coach who shot the bird at the fans...and so much more! But through it all, we showed up for the games...year after year.
So, if you think your antics will cause problems for Shinn with the fans, think again. We have seen guys like you come and go! Your PR act is getting old. Be a real pro and make a verbal statement.
I don't know about the others on this board, but I don't care about you. All I want is to select my seats ASAP!!!!!
