The New Orleans Hornets are part of the Southwest Division of the National Basketball Association. A relatively new franchise, the New Orleans Hornets began life in 1988 as the Charlotte Hornets. They remained based in Charlotte, North Carolina until 2002, when they relocated to New Orleans and became the New Orleans Hornets. The team has had a turbulent time since. The New Orleans Hornets were forced to leave New Orleans after the devastation of hurricane Katrina. The New Orleans Hornets played most of their teams in the following season in Oklahoma, but returned to New Orleans into 2007.
