The New Orleans Hornets preseason schedule has begun and to commemorate their return to the Big Easy, they will wear the above fleur-de-bee patch. At first, I was not a fan of the patch, but it has grown on me. Supposedly fan support of the logo has the team considering making it a secondary logo and perhaps putting it on the court next year.

It definitely gives the team a more New Orleans feel, as the other logos are either retreads from the Charlotte Hornets or just the often fan criticized "stinger H." I applaud the Hornets for working to make the team fit in with New Orleans culture and trying to get New Orleans fans to buy in that this really is their team, not Charlotte or Oklahoma City's.
