It will barely be a blip on the national sports radar. ESPN will give it a 20 second highlight package. Troy Daniels' deep three pointer in double overtime may make the top ten. NBATV might mention that the Hornets won the game after diving into Demarcus Cousins' 56 point performance. And then....with barely a whimper...it will disappear into the cold winter winds of January NBA basketball.
But that may make it all the more sweeter for the hardcore Hornets fans that listen to the show. The Charlotte Hornets miracle after midnight over Cousins and the Sacramento Kings will be ours and ours alone.
Without an above-average NBA starting lineup's worth of talent, with three of their four bigs fouled out, against an unstoppable force of nature underneath the basket, in a hostile environment, in double overtime...the Hornets won a basketball game to move to 22-23, 9th in the Eastern Conference.
This show is our love letter.
