Buccaneers Uniforms. Great. I can't wait. The Hornets are participating in the NBA's throwback promotion, called Hardwood Classics. The New Orleans Buccaneers were a charter franchise in the ABA and played from 1967 until (after moving twice) it folded in Baltimore in 1975. The first game in the pirate duds is Dec. 10. Eye patches and parrots optional.
