The folks down in New Orleans seem to be in a good mood lately, thanks in large part to a product of the Commonwealth. My initial thoughts were somebody had a load of Bourbon shipped directly to Hornets247’s compound, but on closer inspection, it appears they just enjoy their basketball. Either way was good for me.
Anthony Davis and Darius Miller will make up 1/6th (or 2/12th’s as the blog puts it) of the Hornets roster next season, so they propose that we Kentucky fans officially adopt the Hornets as our NBA team.
But I think plenty of you guys are way ahead of them. I’ve seen more yellow and creole blue No. 23 jerseys around town in the last week than I ever saw Wall for the Wizards. We’re certainly a fan of any team a former Cat plays for, but if we had to pick just one…
What kind of invitation would be official without a petition? The blog is seeking a mere 23 signatures; let’s see if we can’t help them out.
Dear Kentucky Basketball Fans,
You have a lot to be proud of, a lot to keep you busy. But look, Anthony Davis is a Hornet now and we’d love for you to adopt New Orleans has your NBA city of choice. Remember how much fun you had on April 2nd, 2012?
We miss Anthony Davis, so we should be friends. Let New Orleans know what you want.
