A few notes on a rare off day for the team, with no game or practice taking place Monday:
- Thanks go out to our friends at SuperSonics.com for inviting me onto their site this weekend to answer a few questions about the Hornets. Sonics team website writer Kevin Pelton uses his extensive background in basketball and statistical analysis to help provide fans with unique information that they can't find in other places. Pelton took time to break down Seattle and discuss Kevin Durant in our Rival Report that we have been compiling with other NBA teams before every Hornets home game.
- A few minutes before tip-off prior to Sunday's game, I got a chance to talk with ESPN: The Magazine writer Chris Palmer. Palmer sat in for the second edition of "Hornets Fact or Fiction" this season, using the same format for our talk with ESPN's Ric Bucher during preseason. Visit Hornets.com later this week for Palmer's thoughts on Chris Paul's All-Star hopes, Reggie Bush jerseys in New Orleans and much more.
- For the second straight season, we have a handful of Hornets.com interviewers helping me split up talks with visiting players at each of our home games. If you get a chance, check out Nick O'Hayre's talk with New Orleans native Danny Granger and Lindsey Wyckoff's interview with J.J. Redick. We also recently caught up with Brandon Bass, Rudy Gay and Jeff Green during this recent stretch of home games. You'll see those articles on the site when New Orleans visits Dallas, Memphis and Seattle, respectively, later this month.
- We've created a new archive news area on the site recently. For a comprehensive look at some of the content we've produced this season, click here.
