HoopsHype Charlotte Hornets twitter
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?
There was a bunch of "no respect" anger from Hornets fans tonight about 2 national TV appearances. Some thoughts (more)...
Bobcats never beat the Heat with LeBron.
Would've been interesting to view Hornets' reaction to 1 LeBron visit to Charlotte. Guessing coaches cheered, business side winced.
Hornets have only 4 home games in February. That's about longer All-Star Break (9 days off) and CIAA Tournament dates.
Obviously the Hornets will need to start fast, based on schedule: 18 of 41 home dates before Jan. 1.
Hornets play only 3 games against LeBron/Cavs. Good for Steve Clifford, but only 1 visit to Charlotte Jan. 2.
Hornets will always have lots of back-to-backs because they request so many home games for Friday and Saturday.
Hornets play 22 sets of games on back-to-back nights.
With new, extended All-Star Break, Hornets won't play from Feb. 9 through Feb. 20.
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.
Stephen Curry and the Warriors are in Charlotte Nov. 28. Both Warriors games in November.
Hornets play four of their first six at home before heading west.
Does not appear Hornets have any TNT appearances.
November road trip for Hornets -- Lakers, Blazers, Suns and Warriors.
Hornets also host the Memphis Grizzlies Nov. 1
Can confirm Hornets regular-season opener is at home Oct. 29 versus the Milwaukee Bucks.
Toughest decision of the day: Santa Monica, El Segundo, Manhattan, or Hermosa

3 reasons to watch "Trouble With The Curve": Great depiction of NC; reflects baseball at its base roots; Amy Adams is mildly attractive.
Very obvious NFL is serious about cracking down on defensive holding. Not unlike when NBA went zero-tolerance on hand-checking.
Remember when NFL types would "tsk-tsk" the NBA for promoting players over teams? This NFL Network panting over Manziel kills that narrative
Anderson better show Newton some of those moves.
Finally the Panthers have a QB who can beat you with his feet.
There is no "Riverboat Doug."
