Right now I’m seeing a growing enthusiasm for New Orleans Hornets tickets. The Hornets have been on a tear and now sport a tie for the best record in the NBA with only a single loss to their credit. Meanwhile, the division rival San Antonio Spurs have kept pace and are also at 9-1. While either team may stumble before their Nov 28th matchup, you’d have to consider the Hornets and Spurs to be frontrunners in not only the Southwest Division, but also the Western Conference.
The Los Angeles Lakers may still be the favorites of many. But sooner or later the old king will die and a new king will emerge. Or perhaps a cocky and talented newcomer will arise from the pack and challenge the old king. That seems to be either the New Orleans Hornets or San Antonio Spurs bucking for the role of spoiler. It’s early in the NBA season but it should be interesting to watch how this plays out.
