The Bobcats this week launched the Pick 20 Plan, which allows fans to purchase tickets to the Home Opener against Cleveland and 19 additional games of their choosing, with prices starting at less than $10 per game. As with full season tickets, fans with the Pick 20 Plan will have the opportunity to keep those seats for the 2014-15 season when the Hornets name returns to Charlotte.

Bobcats schedule pretty reasonable. Longest road trip 5 games late-Dec to early Jan. Starts in Atlanta, ends in Sacramento.

no national tv appearances other than vs Knicks at home on Fri Nov 8 and vs Bulls at home on Sat. Jan 25.  All Home games at 7pm except the MLK day game at 2pm and closing night at 8pm.  No respect in the schedule making despite our improvements.   We always seem to be at home closing night though.

Preseason games haven't been released yet.

 

However, according to StubHub we are playing the Heat in Kasas City, Missouri for some ungodly reason.

get ready--

 

i just did a quick W-L going down the list and have us going 43-39

i then factored in the "homer-rule" and flip-flopped 10 wins for losses and came up with a 33-49 record

 

that is improving +12 wins from last year.. reasonable??

 

this would result with us picking  around the #10 - #11 in the lottery

30 wins or so certainly isn't unreasonable to think about. I hope that we only win 30 or less games and have good luck in the lottery, though, because I do not want to be a treadmill team. However I do want us to show major improvement this season (especially MKG and Biz), and build upon that while adding a top player from the 2014 draft. Pretty much my dream scenario.
