New Orleans Pelicans Tickets
The newly-renamed New Orleans Pelicans, formerly the Charlotte Hornets, and then the New Orleans Hornets, before settling on their latest aviary name. The Pelicans operate in the Southwest Division of the NBA's Western Conference. The franchise carries a rich history of ups and downs, including a two year stint where the franchise was moved to Oklahoma as a result of the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina which struck the city in 2005. But the team has endured hardships like these to become a competitive squad known for bringing young fresh talent into the league.
The most successful era in the team's history came when the team (then called the Hornets) selected rookie point guard Chris Paul to the team in 2005. By 2008 the Hornets achieved a franchise best 56-26 regular season record, securing the 2nd spot in the Western Conference and advancing to the conference semifinals before falling to the defending-champ Spurs.
After Paul's departure, the team adopted its new name and a new star player— young and freakishly athletic center Anthony Davis, who began to turn the team's fortunes around once more.
Today, the New Orleans Pelicans are a promising force in the Western Conference, one that shouldn't be missed— find cheap tickets to see the Pelicans in action!
