If national TV mattered, Spurs would be out of the league. Also Knicks and Lakers were on TV all the time. What was that worth?

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.

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.

Rick Bonnell

Stephen Curry and the Warriors are in Charlotte Nov. 28. Both Warriors games in November.

Rick Bonnell

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

Rick Bonnell

Does not appear Hornets have any TNT appearances.

Rick Bonnell

November road trip for Hornets -- Lakers, Blazers, Suns and Warriors.

New-look Hornets opening at home vs. Milwaukee Bucks and rookie Jabari Parker: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

Can confirm Hornets regular-season opener is at home Oct. 29 versus the Milwaukee Bucks.

NBA schedule comes out Wednesday around 6 pm. Anticipate Hornets opening at home, with rollout of new brand/uniforms.

Rick Bonnell

Charlotte Convention Center would host Jam Session, which is NBA's fan experience.

Rick Bonnell

NBA requires a minimum of 6,000 hotel rooms to host All-Star Weekend. Charlotte region has that.

Rick Bonnell

Whitfield expects 8-10 bids will compete to host 2017 or 2018 NBA All-Star Game.

Rick Bonnell

The city's Ron Kimble on arena improvements: "We want to make sure our arena is competitive against the rest of the region."

Rick Bonnell

Hornets prez Whitfield says they'd welcome either 2017 or 2018. He expects league decision in fall of 2015.

3 reasons to watch "Trouble With The Curve": Great depiction of NC; reflects baseball at its base roots; Amy Adams is mildly attractive.

Rick Bonnell

Very obvious NFL is serious about cracking down on defensive holding. Not unlike when NBA went zero-tolerance on hand-checking.

Rick Bonnell

Remember when NFL types would "tsk-tsk" the NBA for promoting players over teams? This NFL Network panting over Manziel kills that narrative

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

The faces these kids have are priceless. So humbled. Had a great day w/ Samaritans Feet today making… instagram.com/p/rfEpvhEvi-/

Anderson better show Newton some of those moves.
