While making fun of the corporate-whorish NBA TV/Nike “24 Hours of LeBron” to celebrate LeBron James’ 24th birthday, I jokingly stated that the next Hornet birthday, I’d top that. January 13th is James Posey’s birthday. And I am a woman of my word. Check out the rest of the silliness here.

Whew. That’s a lot of Pose. Thankfully, 24 hours of Chris Paul will be eight hours less exhausting… ha! You know we’re never doing this again, right?
Three final notes, and the first one’s on the mood theme. You might have noticed the smilies at the bottom of each post are all tiny James Poseys. That wasn’t just for yesterday– it’s a permanent thing. There are, in fact, 68 James Posey moods. No, I won’t post them all. There’s one in particular that’s only going to see the light of day for a really… special… occasion. (NOTE TO HORNETS: Being the Cavs’ first home loss would be that occasion. I am JUST SAYING.) But in the meantime, it’s in the shadows, like a phantom, waiting… like Posey himself.
Second, this is Hornets Hype’s 400th post, and yesterday morning we received our 50,000th visitor. Yay us.
Finally, I would like to say thank you to James Posey. We think you’re the best free agent signing of the summer of 2008. We really do love and appreciate what you do for our team. And we couldn’t be happier to have you along for the ride.
