I would assume that Ishbia took over earlier in the offseason and, therefore, had the time to make trades etc. Not to mention, pretty much all trades are on hold waiting to see how the Dame situation plays out and if their franchise is going to be part of it.
Agree completely. Both with your assessment and the idea that we should be. My wish is to invest in infrastructure improvements asap and asses everything personal wise.
Don’t care what anyone says. Fans who still have some Bobcats gear need to pull it out and wear it to the Gerald Wallace night. Light Spectrum up with the orange and blue!
Paying 7-15 dollars to watch Wallace work his athletic tail off, even for such a crummy team, was a very worthwhile trip to downtown. I actually get nostalgic for it. Heck, I think I even got a midweek special for around $5 to see them defeat rookie D-Rose and the Bulls in late 2008.
We had a poor man’s NBA team and he was our poor man’s Dr. J.
Yes we need to be pessimistic heading into this season. It makes supporting the Hornets so much better. Disregard that a big part of their disappointing season had little to do with a lack of talent and was in large part due to key long term injuries!
We suck, there is no reason to watch our guys play this season!
The Bobcats kinda represented a second youth for me. I realized I wasn’t gonna do the wife-and-kids thing and kinda relaxed with my free time. We got a second chance at the NBA, and I loved the (then)new feature of hitting uptown for games. Also enjoyed the way the NBA was played in those Bobcat years. I bet the '09-10 playoff season was fun for ya.
I still have some Bobcats stuff and will always want to hang onto it. While I wouldn’t say I was against switching back to the Hornets, I actually liked being the Bobcats. I feel like we caught lightening in a bottle with the original Hornets. It was new, fun, and cool and following those teams made for some of my best memories as a sports fan. But as much as we try to pretend like this iteration of the Hornets is a continuation of that, it’s not. That’ll always be special, and although I’m just as ride or die for this team, the re-boot has never quite felt the same to me. Which is why I was ok with Charlotte 2.0 having it’s own identity. I liked the feline symmetry between the Bobcats and the Panthers, and as much as people seemed not to like him, I actually thought the play on words with Johnson’s name was pretty clever.
