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.

    • A team might have a lot more injuries than the opposing team. Keeps a fair balance.
    • Its purpose is to ensure a level playing field. Say you have everyone active but Team A has five players injured while Team B only has one. Team A now has a perceived advantage because they technically have a deeper roster. Forcing both teams to sit 8 players is meant to nullify that possibility.
    • It all comes down to Rivera.   Are the Panthers good enough to go on the road and win a game against a so-so team that sucked last year and has a rookie QB in his third ever game?  Yes. Will there be any sign that this coaching staff understands how to do that? That is the question. Backs against the wall, staring down 0-3 and the increasing likelihood that if this thing goes south in a hurry heads will roll... I’d like to think we’ll come out 1-2, but... I still think the Panthers will go into AZ underprepared.  They will underperform.  Maybe it will be close at some point, but I just see the little mistakes adding up to some truly unfortunate momentum changes in this game. On the road, every mistake is magnified. AZ has nothing to lose and will be relaxed and focused.  Panthers will start out looking like they could win this thing, then there will be lapses in focus and suddenly AZ has the ball in good field position. Plus...and I mean this for real...the best narrative for the NFL is the rise of Murray and the decline of the Panthers.  I find that games like this often favor which ever story is the best narrative for the corporate interest.  What helps the NFL more: Kyle Allen leads a mediocre Panthers over and even more mediocre Cardinals, OR Murray balls out and puts up a highlight reel as the lowly Panthers trip over their own stupid feet? The second one. Probably another grinding loss. Panthers 20 Cardinals 27
