Trending Topics briefly takes a look at a couple stories coming from inside NBA locker rooms.
At 11-1, the New Orleans Hornets right now are tied for the best record in the NBA. After 12 games last season, the Hornets stood at 4-8 amidst a head coaching firing and a clearly disjointed team. This year with a number of new players in the mix, everything has clicked. Rookie Head Coach Monty Williams is preaching defense and his players are buying in, holding opponents to a League best 42.5 percent shooting from the field. They also round out the top five in NBA point differential, outscoring opponents on average by 7.1 points per game.
