Samuel L. Jackson To Announce Lineups In Thursday's Hornets vs. Clippers Game

Wednesday March 21st, 2012

Hollywood star Samuel L. Jackson will introduce the starting lineups Thursday night in New Orleans as the Hornets take on the Los Angeles Clippers, according to The Times-Picayune.

Jackson is well known for his distinctive and enthusiastic style of speaking, made famous in movies like “Pulp Fiction” and “Snakes on a Plane.”

This will mark the second time this season that a celebrity has announced the starting lineups at a Hornets home game. Earlier this year Will Ferrell introduced both the home and away lineups when the squad played the Chicago Bulls.
