BTW, why the hell don't they all scoot up a few rows?

LOL I was just about to say the same thing.

But from watching the game the crowd didn't look *too* bad during the beginning of the game. A large gain from when they were playing Orlando...now that was ugly. That pic was probably taken during the 4th when the game slipped away.

But it will be cool to have a bball team in New Orleans.

It would be ludicrous for the team to prevent fans from the time honored scoot up.

I so don't understand how New Orleans can make a franchise succesful (i.e. profitable) if Charlotte's support couldn't.

Does anybody know anything about the economics involved?

New Orleans has basically guaranteed sell outs for a few years as well.

Kidd looks like a badass with that noogie on his head. He played well. Congrats to NJ.

When Zo and LJ played there Charlotte had some of the best fan support in the entire NBA.

It became a political thing somehow there. Of course when the big name players leave that doesn't help.
