Since we last saw the New Orleans Hornets as our full-time pre-Katrina home team, the squad has become more international. This year’s roster includes Marcus Vinicius, a first year forward from Brazil.

New to the team since the hurricane, but not new to the NBA, is nine-year veteran Peja Stojakovic from Serbia who plays both forward and guard.

Stojakovic is pictured here going for a three-pointer on the road against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Players’ careers can be made by yells proclaiming “Goal!!!!!” That word is hallowed in any language.
