Before Alonzo Mourning won a ring, Dell Curry had gray hair, Kendall Gill MJ comparisons faded, Larry Johnson went 4-point play or Mugsy Bouges grew (he actually didn’t grow). The New Orleans Hornets were the Charlotte Hornets and led by their young trio of Johnson, Mourning, and Gill. The squad had their first ever winning record and playoff berth during the ’92-’93 season.
They even managed to upset the Boston Celtics in the first round, thanks to a Mourning 20-footer in game four. The New York Knicks beat them the next round, but that season was still good enough to produce this most excellent honeycombed inspired teal, purple, and white tee created by UNDRCRWN.
