The New Orleans Hornets have surprised the entire league after their 8-0 start and are currently tied for the best record in the NBA at 10-1.  The Hornets are led by their all-star Point Guard Chris Paul and big man David West, and in order to get better the team has just pulled a deal with the Toronto Raptors.  The New Orleans Hornets will send Peja Stojakovic and Jerryd Bayless to the Raptors for Jarrett Jack, David Andersen and Marcus Banks.  The Hornets have found a back-up point guard for Paul, who happens to be one of his life-long best friends.
