NATIONSBANK CEO CLAIMS THAT NASHVILLE HOT AFTER HORNETS

          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).
