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.

    • Yeah really dumb idea. Star players will be getting thrown out for incidental contact that the ref "misunderstands" as a helmet shot. The solution isn't adding more rules or "being stricter" so to say but enforcing the rules that are already established down the middle. Our games are evidence enough that the refs suck but damn I got tired watching other teams play and see the game decided on either bullshit flags or lack of flags. If anybody needs to be punished more it isn't the players but these POS refs the league can't get their heads noses out of the asses of. Always an excuse or some convoluted reason why the refs were right. I actually heard the announcers calling it out tons of these obvious blown calls and yet still the league stands behind the refs like idiots.
    • First I got to say, damn, people trying to instantly make us the most hated team in the league, even over the Patriots aren't they lol. With all the hate Cam already gets then add Kap even if briefly, oh lord I'd hate to picture it. Yeah that first play is what stands out to me the most. I'd expect even a rookie QB to make that read and throw the ball instead of handing it off. That drive ended up in a safety where as if he throws it to Torrey Smith it is easily a 1st down and possibly a TD as he only has to beat one man. I don't even see Kap look around any in that clip so even more so it feels like he gave it away that it was a run play and the Rams read it like a book. I don't feel like we need him nor do I feel like he is better than what we have. As for his protest, I didn't like what he was doing when he was kneeling but hey he had the right to do it. I personally think him putting his money where his mouth was, was a better way than just kneeling and I commend him for doing so. To be honest the 49'ers have said they would welcome him back. Let's not forget he would still be with them had he not voided his own contract. Somebody will sign him though I just don't see it as a starter which is what he clearly wanted to try and be by voiding with the 49'ers.
    • I feel like this is some kind of guilty admission lol and you should feel bad for voting for that Lunatic / traitor president of ours.    But guess what, you will get a chance to redeem yourself in 2020 with more information about the disgraced president  coming out every week.
