Were so excited for the 2011 Playoffs and the chance to represent New Orleans and South Louisiana in the NBA post-season, said Hornets President Hugh Weber. We would love to see the entire region show how IN they are by wearing Hornets gear every Friday and on game-days and help create a buzz for the excitement of the playoffs. Our goal is to pack the Hive for our playoff run and give our team the best possible home-court advantage.
