Drafts past. Playoffs for other sports going on so question. Are the Carolina Hurricanes more relevant in the Carolina's now than the Hornets?

Recommended Posts

For years, I've had Charlotte residents try to convince me how the Hurricanes were irrelevant and more people show up to Hornets games. The Hurricanes have been to 3 ECF's, two Stanley Cups, and won a Stanley Cup. 

While the the Hornets have only been to the Second Round of the Playoffs. 

I think it's time to put the Hornets are more relevant than the Hurricanes to rest at this point. 

You don't see these types of crowds at Hornets games:

I think so. I never hear anyone talk about the Hornets.

The modern NBA makes it nearly impossible for teams like the Hornets to compete for a championship, so yes.

I think hockey is much more entertaining than basketball.  Sorry Hornets fans.  You could put an NBA perennial contender in Charlotte, and I'd still rather go see the Hurricanes.  I just don't find basketball very "fun" to watch anymore.

Been saying that for over 30 damn years. Most have given up now. Plus, that anus from Akron left Cleveland, then went back. Now he's left again. LOL.

This. Too easy to create a super team. Takes the enjoyment out of the game for me.

You can thank everyone's favorite player LeBron for that one.

Yep, the NBA would drastically improve the competitiveness of the league as a whole if they'd get rid of the max contract stipulations. Want a LeBron or Curry or Durant? Fine. Pay them their actual market value like NFL teams instead of contracts falsely capped. That's why all these superstars want to team up to create superteams. There's no reason not to. It's not like another team could offer them more.

Not MY favorite player. That’s for sure.

    • Teddy was good in college, so much so that I remember a few Huddlers mentioning "tanking for Teddy" the season before he came out. And, it's not like his winning ways haven't translated to the NFL, regardless of whether someone believes he only did it because he had a good team surrounding him. At some point, one really has to concede that you're not going to take a trash team to the playoffs, regardless of who you are. Unlike Trent Dilfer who simply didn't have to do much, Bridgewater actually had to win a few games. His defenses were very good, but they weren't historical. But, I can understand why you'd think of Teddy as a game manager. That's not necessarily a bad thing in all cases. We almost one a Super Bowl with a glorified game manager (and Delhomme was one in my opinion), but this brings me to the next point, which is sometimes that has a lot to do with the HC's and OC's philosophy as well.  I have questions about Teddy, believe me. But I have less questions about his ability to get some wins than whether or not his decidedly small frame can hold up to the rigors of the NFL. I mean, he really had a catastrophic injury. If he hadn't his career just might be on full showcase as opposed to a reclamation project. I'm not going to count it against him because he played on decent defensive teams, including one as a rookie, but then got hurt in the third year when many QBs show marked improvement and start putting it all together. If anything, he didn't have to be as proficient or efficient as he was, particularly in his sophomore season, considering the relatively little experience that he had. The other two seasons were pretty much throwaways where he didn't get any credible playing time and rehabbing both physically and mentally, and people not really believing that he could resume any semblance of success (which probably had to do moreso with his injury than anything else). Bottom line: He took the reigns and stayed the course for one of the best in NFL history. So, yeah, I'm not sure he can get us to where we want to ultimately go, but if he stays healthy, I wouldn't bet against him. His career is the epitome of disjointed, but injuries do that to even the Cam Newtons and Andrew Lucks of the league who had considerably more time at the helm.  This year (or next) will tell us a lot.  
    • The thought is that the upper end QB's in this upcoming class are "safer" bets. Even after Lawrence and Fields it does actually look like a strong QB class, depending on who declares.
    • Not sure if you mean Trubisky, Darnell, Mayfield or Murray here?  Point being even if we manage a tanking, it is a coin flip at best.
