NATIONSBANK CEO CLAIMS THAT NASHVILLE HOT AFTER HORNETS
Published February 14, 1997
NationsBank CEO Hugh McColl, whose bank is leading the campaign for a new arena in Charlotte, says Nashville is "courting" the Hornets, although Hornets Owner George Shinn and Nashville officials have denied it, according to Bonnell & Alexander in the CHARLOTTE OBSERVER. McColl: "I do know there are cities, like Nashville, that are wooing him and who will write him a check to come over there and give him a stadium as a side deal." Shinn: "I don't know where the hell that came from" (CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 2/14).
