Charlotte Bobcats


Recommended Posts

Can someone please explain to me the point of them?


I mean we just had a team move out of Charlotte because lack of interest and such just to get another team back in there?


It just doesn't make much sense to me and this shakes up the divisions drastically. You're taking a decent team out of the east and putting it into the hardest division. Then put together a weak ass "Southeast" Division where half the teams barely came up with 20 wins last season (but hey i'm not complaining).


But I just wanna know what the purpose is, I mean if you're gonna create another team, couldn't they have found a better place?

The Hornets were one of the best drawing teams in the league for years.



The city got fed up with George Shinn, the owner and would not give funds to build a new arena.


So he moved.


Shinn is the worst owner in pro sports. He is already failing in New Orleans.


Charlotte gets a team because people like hoops there and the NBA knows its a good market.

oh ok i see, thanks for the clearing it up guys :)


anyhoos, yeah NO is basically screwed - midwest division, crappy owner and they couldn't even fill up their arena for the playoffs.


it's a shame because they have real quality players, too bad they're injured more than they play.

SHinn killed the franchise..... fans saw this so they boycotted the team......

Well the Divac for Bryant trade at the time was looked upon as a good deal for Charlotte.


Many, many, many thought Bryant was going to be a bust plus he told Charlotte he would not play for them and demanded a trade. Charlotte couldnt do anything other than trade him. They got a very good big man for him and big men are at a premium.


The High Schoolers are like a crap shoot. 1 in 50 pan out the way you want them too.
