I feel the exact same way. Growing up close to Charlotte, it was exciting following those Mourning, LJ, Muggsy teams. I remember being devastated when they traded 'Zo to the Heat.
Hopefully they can recapture some of the hype surrounding those old Hornets teams and build off of this year's playoff team. If this draft really is as deep as they're saying, they could get 2 quality players with their first round picks.
