I'd be incredibly surprised if we didn't get at least a couple of national games. There are like 6 per week, every team should get a couple imo. Plus we have the Lance vs. LBJ "rivalry" in our corner now. I'd put money on a Charlotte-Cleveland game being nationally televised.

Ugh, pathetic. So two consecutive home games to start the season?

What were you expecting? History says we always open with random, unexciting opponents. On the plus side that's about as winnable a game as you can hope for to open the year outside of Philadelphia.

As far as TV is concerned, it's opening night. The NBA has way too many options all of which are way more appealing than the Charlotte Hornets.

Welcome to the NBA, Jabari. Here's Lance and MKG for 40 minutes.

I wasn't expecting glitz and national exposure but was hoping for something above the team that was dfl last year.

Smart move by the NBA.

It gives the franchise the ability to start out on a winning note.

Yeah, we won't be in the national spotlight, but the next day- we will be covered on SC and given a spot to show the logo is back and Hugo is back- and to couple that with an 'easy' win over the Bucks and some Lance/Kemba/Al highlights on the tail end will be beautiful

And the next night the Panthers host the Saints on national TV.  That will be Charlotte's time to shine on the national sports stage.

    • So we have already picked up Kelvin's fifth year option.  If I gaze into my crystal ball this is what I see happening. This upcoming season (year four) for Kelvin, will be a somewhat of a disappointment, same for Funchess. However, our offense will benefit from the varied and viable options we have provided Cam.  Panthers win Superbowl beating the Patriots and Olsen retires.  Panthers draft a tight end with pick 32.  Kelvin will swear in the offseason that he's taking things seriously as they will need him to be a leader with Olsen retiring., hint: he will because that oh so coveted second contract is looming and Kelvin is no spring chicken (already 26).  Year 5 comes. Kelvin has worked himself into shape and looks amazing. Basically everything we've always wanted from him. However, Funchess has a great season as well, remember Funchess is only (22) right now. He probably came out a year too early and it historically takes WRs a couple years to hit their stride.  Big time decision will come down to Gettleman and co. and I ultimately think we move on from Benjamin where he goes on to sign with the Los Angeles Rams. 
    • Competition makes the most of everyone. Gano had an off year and might be spurred on by the challenge. This guy seems like a good kid, but only one or two new kickers make it into the league each year... it's a hard gig to land.
