Kelly Oubre didn’t know he was going to have an individual NBA Draft workout with the Hornets, but once he arrived at the gym, it felt like a game situation. “All eyes are on me,” Oubre said Thursday morning inside the Hornets practice facility at Time Warner Cable Arena. “That felt good. I got to show out a little bit. “When there are 50,000 people, all eyes are on you. They put the pressure on me and I stepped up to the plate. I was placed in this position and made the best of it. “I was informed I was going to be the only one on the court, and I didn’t argue.” Oubre grew up in New Orleans as a Hornets fan. After spending one season at Kansas, where he started 27 games to help the Jayhawks claim a regular-season Big 12 Cofnerence championship, he’s eager to begin his NBA career. And would love to do it wearing the same jersey he wore as a child — albeit in a different city and for a different iteration of the franchise.
