Calling all fans: Hornets owner hopes to sell out opener
OKLAHOMA CITY -- Hornets owner George Shinn called on fans Sunday to buy up a few thousand remaining tickets to the team's home opener in New Orleans this week.
"I think it's important not only for us to do our part, I think the fans in New Orleans have got to do their part. They've got to step up and help us," Shinn said. "The league has made the point that it's important for us when we go back to have a successful return, so we've got to make all this work. It's that simple."
