I got the NBA Team Pass package but none of these preseason games are broadcast on DirecTV. Do they usually show these preseason games, or are the preseason games local only or through some online package with the NBA? It's frustrating.

I agree with you... preseason games should be road games and used as a marketing tool.

 

We've had several Wizards games played near me, for the same reason.

People all across Georgia, consider the Atlanta Hawks their team. They don't have to go to every other small town to win over fans. The Hornets shouldn't have to do that either across the Carolinas.

 

Are you suggestion that the Hornets consider moving some regular season games outside of Charlotte? No way. I'm from Virginia and a long time ago (really long), they ALMOST had a shot of landing a NBA team. This was when the ABA was on fire, and late of course it would merge with the NBA and a lot of those ABA franchises would become NBA franchises. Anyway, Virginia had a team called the Squires. SO, the Squires were stacked with talent - George Gervin and Julius Erving - they never became a hit. Why? Because ownership got greedy and wanted every piece of Virginia. They played some games in Richmond, some in Roanoke, some in Hampton, etc. At the end, nobody in Richmond felt like the Squires were there team, same thing with Roanoke and Norfolk... and nobody was happy.

 

The Hornets have had success as being the Charlotte Hornets. It work as it is. 

 

I do agree that as far as preseason games, they should place a game or two in Asheville or Raleigh because that's a smart business move, but not in the regular season.

A good defense will go a long way to help than offensive weapons. I mean Matt Ryan has a lot of weapons but ATL is going nowhere fast. Though we have less weapons than ATL, we were able to do better because of defense.

 

I agree, if we put all that emphasis about building the offense through the draft, than everything would be complaining about our defense. lol
