New Orleans does everything, they execute in the half court, they run the floor and they play hard. They do everything that is, except win. New Orleans looked downright formidable in a close game against Chicago and actually beat the defending champion Mavericks. While this is a lost season in New Orleans (and we all knew it would be) the future might be bright for Monty Williams and NOLA. The Hornets are a healthy Eric Gordon and rookie sensation away from competing in the West. -Sean Evans
