    So Frank the Tank is back?

    What are we thinking on jerseys? Pride or home white?

    Sucks Hibbert is already injured. Hope he can stay healthy this season. I really think he will be a major factor in taking a deep playoff run.
    First time in 5 years not being there for the home opener. Bummer! 1st back to back of the season. Hoping for a win!

    I'd love to see the teals rolled out for the first time this season.

    We should roll them tonight if Smart and The Big O is out. I hope we play inspired football. Just landed from Miami and I'm going to watch my Canes on TV and then walk across the street and see my Hornets!!!! What a day.

    Thanks for starting up the thread GS7, Nice Job!

     

    Here is a question to everyone. Have the Hornets/Bobcats ever started off a season 3-0?

    According to E.Coli, no we have not, in the history of the franchise

    Wait, does that go all the way back to the OG Hornets?

     

    That's crazy. I'd love to be part of that tonight in the crowd.

    Then it's about time to do so! Go Hornets!

    I think tonight will be a tougher test, especially with a guy down low like Al Horford. Zeller looked much better on defense last night than the first game, but we don't have much of a defense down low right now with Hibbert out. We may see some of our smaller guys guarding him. 

     

    That said, hope our Hornets can pull out another win and give the home crowd a night to remember! Go Hornets!

    I got all hornets games last season. Why are my games blacked out now 😠😠😠

    Not the kind of start you want on opening night. Celtics are making threes like free throws.

    I know I'm a broken record here, but man, if you surround Sessions with shooters, good things happen.
    Love this line up with four shooters and Ramon. And I like FK3 @ the five and Marv at the four. Roll with it coach....
    Ok well a flip of the script out if the TO then.
    Oh shoot, wanted to see that line up.
    Lamb out the rest of the game with a Brian Roberts.

    Avery Bradley is killing us with 3's. Only down 3 while shooting 30% from the field. If we can get shots to start fall we should be in good shape

    Losing Lamb the rest of the game hurts but hopefully Frank can stem that a bit of the bench. Someone's going to have ĹŁo explain how that wasn't a flagrant 2 on Cody's chin.
