New Orleans Sports Scuttlebutt 1-23-09



New Orleans Hornets’ guard Chris Paul won a  starting spot on the Western Conference All-Star team after Paul and the Hornets fended off the Nets for their third consecutive win. The Hornets three game serge began with a win over Detroit 91-85. New Orleans, having lost starters David West and Tyson Chandler and back up center Hilton Armstrong, would then  beat the Pacers 103-100 on Chris Paul's late 3 pointer. Short handed and facing a lesser New Jersey team the stage was set for a classic let down game, but the Hornets were not to be denied as they defeated the Nets 102-92.

Maybe a little rough water is what it took to right the New Orleans Hornets' ship. Whatever the case the New Orleans Hornets (26-13) will be at  Minnesota  to face the Timberwolves (13-27) at 8 p.m. tonight, and they must find a way to stay the course if they want keep pace with a myriad of contenders in the West.

Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams  is excited' to join the New Orleans Saints' coaching staff and so is head coach Sean Payton who Literally Paid $250k of Gregg Williams' Salary to persuade him come to New Orleans. Payton, Williams, and the rest of New Orleans' coaching staff wasted no time in preparing for the 2009-10 season. The New Orleans Saints coaching staff was one step ahead of the competition as they swarmed Senior Bowl practices to get an early look at the nation's top prospects. The Saints' defensive hires know the score-with a defense that has been, well defenseless, for the past three seasons the sooner they get to work the better.
