Last week, I was among a group of about 40 NOLA media members who were invited to attend a pair of interview sessions with Hornets team president Hugh Weber and Hornets executive officer of the board Chad Shinn. The conversation was fascinating on a number of different levels, with Weber and Shinn discussing various team-related topics.

I plan to delve deeper into Weber and Shinn’s comments over the next few weeks, starting with today’s “Hornets Insider” article that addresses the national media’s coverage of the team. There are several other topics that I am planning to touch on soon, such as the luxury tax, the status of naming rights for the New Orleans Arena, social-networking usage by Hornets players and more.

For now, tell us your opinion of today's article and your perspective on the national media’s coverage of the Hornets by commenting here in the Big Easy Buzz blog.
