New Orleans Hornets Team Info
The Hornets started their trek through the National Basketball Association during the 1988-'89 season. The team moved to New Orleans after the 2001-'02 season. The parting of the franchise and the city got rather ugly and during the '02 playoffs the city refused to show up to the games. It was one of the most unusual sights that a team would have such a large amount of empty seats for a home playoff game. The Hornets packed up their stuff and moved out to New Orleans before the 2002-'03 season and picked up where they left off. The team made it to the playoffs for the fourth straight season behind the strong play of small forward Jamal Mashburn. The Hornets took the series to six games but lost at 4-2.
Last season the Hornets upper management wanted to shake things up and they did just that when they fired head coach Paul Silas and brought in Tim Floyd. Many didn't see the sense in that move. Floyd, who is known as the man that replaced Phil Jackson after Jordan left, had a great deal of talent before and couldn't do anything but be a doormat in the East. Silas, on the other hand, is one of the most respected coaches in the NBA. The result was pretty much the same as in years past for the Hornets, outside of the breakout season that point guard Baron Davis enjoyed with Mashburn injured for most of the season. The Hornets finished with a 41-41 record which fetched them the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference half of the playoff brackets. The Hornets went down 2-0 in the first two games but battled back and won their next three games on their home court and evened the series at 3-3.
