Daniel Curtin

20 nationally televised games for the Lakers, 18 combined for the Hornets, Pelicans, Raptors, and Suns. LAL west coast time slot but still..

Rick Bonnell

There was a bunch of "no respect" anger from Hornets fans tonight about 2 national TV appearances. Some thoughts (more)...

Rick Bonnell

Bobcats never beat the Heat with LeBron.

Rick Bonnell

Would've been interesting to view Hornets' reaction to 1 LeBron visit to Charlotte. Guessing coaches cheered, business side winced.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets have only 4 home games in February. That's about longer All-Star Break (9 days off) and CIAA Tournament dates.

Rick Bonnell

Obviously the Hornets will need to start fast, based on schedule: 18 of 41 home dates before Jan. 1.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets play only 3 games against LeBron/Cavs. Good for Steve Clifford, but only 1 visit to Charlotte Jan. 2.

Josh Lewenberg

Or whatever the Charlottes are called these days... RT @Josh Lewenberg Raptors on ESPN: Dec. 17 vs Nets, Apr. 8 @ Bobcats, Apr. 15 vs Bobcats

Rick Bonnell

Hornets will always have lots of back-to-backs because they request so many home games for Friday and Saturday.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets play 22 sets of games on back-to-back nights.

Rick Bonnell

With new, extended All-Star Break, Hornets won't play from Feb. 9 through Feb. 20.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets have no TNT games. Two on ESPN: Home vs. Raptors April 8, at Raptors April 15. 2nd game is end of season so subject to change.

John Denton

#Magic have 17 back-to-backs -- 2 of them are home gmes on consec nights ORL hosts #Nets & #Hornets Jan.2-3 & #Raptors & #Knicks April 10-11

Rick Bonnell

Hornets play four of their first six at home before heading west.

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors on TNT: Nov. 13 vs Bulls. On ESPN: Dec. 17 vs Nets, Apr. 8 @ Bobcats, Apr. 15 vs Bobcats. Also have 5 scheduled games on NBA TV
