New Orleans Pelicans TicketsThe New Orleans Pelicans team is a professional basketball team as a franchise in the NBA. The team is based in New Orleans, La., and plays its home games in the Smoothie King Arena. Initially, the team was called the Charlotte Hornets. This franchise relocated to New Orleans in 2002, and it made the playoffs in its first two seasons. In 2005, the franchise hit a home run by drafting All-World point guard Chris Paul with the overall fourth pick. Paul was so good that he earned Rookie-of-the-Year honors. In fact, the Big Easy has been so lucky with first-round picks that the team was able to snag Anthony Davis with its first overall selection in 2012. Davis didn’t disappoint the franchise as he is the youngest player ever to score at least 59 points in a game and thus has garnered five All-star selections. Once the Hornets left, the evolution of the New Orleans Pelicans arrived. Consequently, the Pelicans team has made the playoffs seven times, securing two series victories.
