For now the Saints are the most likely of the two franchises to win a title, but it's entirely possible that 2-3 years from now, as Drew Brees gets older, the Hornets will be the more likely team between the two on the brink of history. Not only is Anthony Davis ("Unibrow") the obvious cornerstone to build your entire team around, at only 19 years of age mind you, but the Hornets have already surrounded him by Eric Gordon (one of the best shooting guards in the NBA) and two more rookies in Austin Rivers and Darius Miller to round out a very solid rookie class. Pretty crazy that Tom Benson now owns both of these franchises. He really couldn't have come at a better time.
That's all you can ask for as a sports fan: a shot at a title. You hope for a competitive team that has at least the potential either now or down the road of making a run. The Saints are there now, and the Hornets were there a few years ago, and their recent pickups suggest they may only be 2-3 years away from possibly being a serious contender.
I know it's hard to compare NBA players to NFL players - but here's an interesting question to wonder about. I'd love to hear your take in the comment section. When it's all said and done, who will have had the more decorated career - Drew Brees or Anthony Davis?
