The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

The very definition of "faint praise"

Salon's King Kaufman predicts the NBA season, and no surprise as to the identity of the dweller in the Southwest Division cellar:

If everything goes right for the Hornets this season, they'll be the best pro basketball team ever to play its home games in Oklahoma City.

I dunno. Could they beat the 1996-97 Oklahoma City Cavalry of the CBA, who actually won the league championship?

We'll never know for sure. At this moment, a few hours before the season begins, I'm inclined to think that finishing 31-51 would qualify as a moral victory. (I'm expecting more like 25-57.)
