The New Orleans Hornets are celebrating their 10th anniversary as a franchise in the Crescent City in 2012. Though the team has not played all its home games in the city since formally moving from Charlotte, it has been a fun 10 years nonetheless.
By no means has that time been all smiles. Hurricane Katrina forced the team out of the city for almost two full seasons. But the franchise hasn't come close to dominating the doldrums of the NBA like the Charlotte Bobcats or Los Angeles Clippers have for most of the past decade.
There have been a number of great moments. Let's limit ourselves here to 10, if for no other reason than to honor the 10 years the team has formally called New Orleans its city.
