Seat view from section 112 at the Smoothie King Center, home of the New Orleans Pelicans

Had the opportunity to take in a Hornets game last December when the Milwaukee Bucks were in New Orleans and I sat here in 112, row 21. It was one of the last 6 or 7 rows in 112 but the view was perfect. We were seated just to the right of midcourt where every play happens right in front of you without being too far from any play. The Hornets bench was down to our right and the Bucks used to bench to our left. You can see the plays take place really well from the later rows, in my opinion.
There was nothing too special about the seats themselves. They had decent padding but weren't leather but were decently roomy. New Orleans Arena is a much nicer arena than the Superdome next door but also much much smaller.

We were able to park in Lot 3 which was the surface lot adjacent to the arena. We entered the building along Dave Dixon Drive and there were a number of entrances on that side. Many fans just use the Superdome parking lot. There is no light rail system that services the two arenas so getting there requires driving or walking. The French Quarter is within a few blocks, tons of restaurants and bars in that little district, obviously. Lots of history there, too.

To give you an idea what the view of the court is like from section 112, here is a Youtube video shot from there during a high school game at New Orleans Arena.

There are courtside seats for this section; rows aa and bb. The rest of the section is a normal section.
You're center court. Behind both team's benches and the scorer's table. The opposite side of mid-court would probably be a better place to sit due to all of the commotion that happens in front of this section. Still one of the best seats in the arena. You can make out all of the players.
