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.

    • If they sign the current Cam to a new contract they’re delusional at best 
    • The pessimist view is that Cam is pretty far along in his career to be going through a development process.  The optimistic view is he is already well used to the NFL game, the speed, what to expect from NFL defenses, etc.  That learning curve is not small, and he has already absorbed it. Every running QB (vs. a classic pocket passer) has gone through this to one level or another.  Some make the transition, some don't.  The reason is you want a QB to last 10-15 years. RBs last a lot less.  It is not that they become uninspired, the reason is physical.  Cam (he and his body) is not an exception to this.  This may be especially true with his weight loss.  He can't play like a fullback and run over LBs with the same proficiency when he is 15 lbs. lighter or so. The prototypes for this are Steve Young, Warren Moon, Randall Cunningham, etc.  To one degree or another, they all made the transition from run first to run when it is time to run. But, the question is whether or brain trust has already beaten him up enough that it is simply not possible.  From what we are told and what I have seen, he is capable of doing it if the OL doesn't get him killed again.  But, he could be one injury away from proving me wrong. I have no idea what will happen, only the large number of possibilities of what could.  Put me in the "cautiously optimistic" category.
