The NBA Lottery is a winner take all deal in terms of the number one pick. The New Orleans Hornets were able to parlay a number four pick into the number one pick. There are additional resources at the end of this article.
The New Orleans Hornets turned their luck around in the NBA lottery on May 30, 2012. The New Orleans Hornets took the pick that the received for Chris Paul, another former number one pick, and turned it into the number one pick in the 2012 draft. While this is not the biggest jump in NBA history it does create a turn of events for a team and a city looking for good news in the sports world.
The New Orleans Hornets for the past several months have been owned by the NBA. They have been sold to a group of owners, including New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson, and now have the number one pick in the NBA draft this June. This is the first time in the history of the New Orleans Hornets that they have picked number one overall. Most experts agree that the New Orleans Hornets will most likely pick Anthony Davis, the center from the University of Kentucky.
The Charlotte Bobcats had the best chance of receiving the number one overall pick since they had the worst record last season. The Bobcats will now pick second overall. The Bobcats would have loved to been able to pick Anthony Davis but they are in dire need of help at all positions. Recent picks of the Charlotte Bobcats have not made contributions to the team.
The New Orleans Hornets are in need of a little good news. Chis Paul, the face of the franchise, asked to be traded and was sent to the Clippers. This was only after a string of on and off and then on again trades. This allows the Hornets to pick the consensus best player in this draft. Anthony Davis can rotate between center and forward which should help the New Orleans Hornets in their drive to make the playoffs and become a contender.
Here is the order that teams will pick on June 28th during the first round of the 2012 NBA Draft:
1. New Orleans Hornets
2. Charlotte Bobcats
3. Washington Wizards
4. Cleveland Cavaliers
5. Sacramento Kings
6. Portland Trail Blazers (from the Brooklyn Nets)

In New Orleans food is important. People in New Orleans do not eat to live they live to eat. The Jazz Buffet at the Court of The Two Sisters is one of the local favorites. There are additional resources at the end of this article.
http://www.bookit.com/travel_guide-m0gtc-New_Orleans-Articles-Restaurants-American-New_Orleans_Restaurants_Serve_Up_Big_Flavor.html Two Creole sisters and the notions shop they owned on 613 Rue Royale Street gave The Court of Two Sisters its name and the street itself has long played a significant role in the history of the French Quarter and old New Orleans. Originally known as “Governor’s Row”, the 600 block of Rue Royale was home to five governors, two state Supreme Court Justices, a future Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, and a future President of the United States. The two sisters, Emma and Bertha Camors, born 1858 and 1860 respectively, belonged to a proud and aristocratic Creole family. Their “rabais”, or notions, outfitted many of the city’s finest women with formal gowns, lace and perfumes imported from Paris.
Come check out the Daily Jazz Brunch Buffet! Enjoy a fine array of traditional hot and cold dishes made with the freshest ingredients. A typical selection of hot dishes includes made-to-order omelettes, Eggs Benedict, sausage and bacon, grits and grillades, and shrimp or veggie pasta with a creamy Alfredo sauce. The afternoon’s sampling includes Creole jambalaya, turtle soup, Duck a l’Orange, and Shrimp Etouffee. The cold buffet typically offers boiled shrimp/crawfish, seafood and pasta salads, ceviche, marinated artichokes, pâtés, cheeses and a variety of fresh fruit, as well as delicious desserts like pecan pie, chocolate mousse, homemade French vanilla ice cream, Bananas Foster and famous bread pudding with whiskey sauce.
