He Got Game

Bill Laurie has a basketball jones that won't go away. Who cares whether it makes economic sense?

Consider that last week, when the visiting Hornets owner, Ray Wooldridge, came for a tour, Laurie had the basketball court put over the ice just for the occasion. What with how the carpetbagging Rams made out on the other side of downtown, Laurie has already seen how the right mix of management, money and marketing can turn a sow's ear into a silk purse. So if it isn't the Hornets this time, it'll be the next frisky NBA owner with happy feet. Go, Bill --just do it.
