2018 Hornets Season Preview
For all those on the Dwight Howard watch, he’s got a new home! And it’s none other than … you guessed it … Hornet City. Charlotte Hornets’ fans are a bit mixed on this one, as this isn’t the Dwight Howard that came out as Superman and dunked like, err, Superman, during his Orlando Magic tenure. This is another Dwight Howard, like Vince Carter in his later years, but still productive and should add a much-needed punch to the Hornets’ interior. Cody Zeller and Frank Kaminsky are the other big players and with Howard, that’s a force to be reckoned with for Charlotte. The Hornets got to 48 wins a couple years back, but last year finished as an 11th seed. Away from Kemba Walker, there’s nobody interesting to cheer for on Charlotte Hornets. It’s unlikely the Hornets will get back into the playoffs this year, but at least the thought of Howard donning that Superman cape and taking his DeLorean back six years has Charlotte salivating. Well maybe not salivating, but you get the picture. Whether you are planning on cheering on the Charlotte Hornets at Spectrum Center or supporting the Hornets on the road, TicketCity has some of the best deals for all 2017-2018 Charlotte Hornets tickets, including home and away games.

Hornets vs. Lakers
The Hornets have struggled through their history while the Lakers have been one of the more successful franchises in all of sports. However, when these two teams meet, the Hornets usually come out on the winning end. The teams may be on separate coasts, but Charlotte always gives Los Angeles everything they can handle in the games they play.
Hornets vs. Pelicans
With the Pelicans once playing in Charlotte, it is only natural for these two teams to be rivals. The Hornets were created two years after the move and a rivalry was immediately born between the two franchises. The Hornets and Pelicans have struggled on the court over the years, but the games are still intense as the Charlotte fans have not forgiven the Pelicans for relocating.
Hornets in the NBA Finals, Western Conference Finals and NBA Playoffs
The Hornets are still looking for the consistency needed to be considered one of the more successful franchises in the NBA. Charlotte joined the NBA in 2004 and they have only made the playoffs once over the years. With a young team, the Hornets are hopeful that their success on the court will start to turn around.
2016 Charlotte Hornets Season Preview
The Charlotte Hornets had an exciting 2015-2016 season as they reached 48 wins and had a tight 7-game playoff match against in the Miami Heat. Coming into the 2016-2017 season, the Hornets lost star players, Jeremy Lin and Al Jefferson. Ramon Sessions and Roy Hibbert will come in as their replacements and the hope is that they can live up to the quality of last season’s playing. Kemba Walker will be a key player for the Hornets this season after accomplishing an average of 20.9 points per game last season. If Charlotte is able to fill the holes left by the veteran players, they have a great shot at improving their ranking this season. This will be an exciting season for Hornets’ fans to watch their team.
2015 Charlotte Hornets Season Preview
A year after advancing to the playoffs, the Charlotte Hornets took a step backward, failing to reach the playoffs for the 4th time in the past 5 seasons. The Hornets chances for returning to the playoffs in 2015-16 took a major blow when star forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist suffered a torn labrum in the preseason and will miss the entire year. Charlotte the drafted talented offensive minded forward Frank Kaminsky in the first round, and will have plenty of veteran leaders in Mo Williams, Tyler Hansbrough, and Jeremy Lin. The loss of Kidd-Gilchrist leaves the 2015 Charlotte Hornets without a superstar, but a solid roster of experienced players should keep the Hornets in playoff contention late in the season.
2014 Charlotte Hornets Season Preview
The 2013-14 season was a stellar year for the New Orleans Hornets (Bobcats). The Hornets (Bobcats) more than doubled their win total from the season before and finished the year with 43 wins and the number 7 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. Charlotte got a tough draw in the Miami Heat in the first round, and played a tough series despite losing 0-4. The success of last season has the Charlotte Hornets coming into the 2014-15 season with much anticipation. Key roster changes for the Hornets include the addition of Lance Stephenson and rookie P.J. Hairston. For the Hornets to move through their 2014-15 schedule and get back to the playoffs, they will once again need stellar play from Al Jefferson. Jefferson is one of the top low post scorers in the NBA and will be essential to Charlotte’s success. Look for Michael Kidd-Gilchrist to take the next step in turning into an elite player for the Charlotte Hornets, and for the Hornets to be in playoff contention late in the season.
2013 Charlotte Hornets Season Preview
They may be the Hornets within a year or two, but for now fans will hope that the addition of Al Jefferson and #4 draft pick Cody Zeller is enough to start turning this team around. Two years ago Charlotte won just seven games, but improved to 21 in 2012-13. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will need to improve off his first season, while Ben Gordon will once again be looked upon to score from the outside consistently while the new big men get acclimated to the system. The Bobcats will open the season at home when the Cavaliers visit Time Warner Cable Arena on Nov. 1. They’ll then immediately hit the road for against in New Orleans and New York. Other key home games will be vs. the Lakers on Dec. 14, vs. Oklahoma City on Dec. 27, and vs. Lebron and the Heat on Jan. 18.
2012 Charlotte Bobcats Season Preview
Even in the midst of a strike-shortened 2011-12 NBA season, the Bobcats finished with the worst winning percentage in NBA history, closing the season with a 7-59 record. While the team certainly would like to forget about their misfortunes on the court, the season forced the front office to consider major changes, including the hire of new head coach Mike Dunlap. The team is in the midst of a major rebuilding project, but has made a series of big moves over the offseason that could help the squad climb out of the basement in the Eastern Conference and become a surprise playoff contender during the 2012-13 campaign. The Bobcats pursued a large-scale purge of their roster entering the offseason, unloading the contract of Corey Magette and shipping off D.J. Augustin in a trade and later signing Ramon Sessions as his replacement. The team also added Ben Gordon in a trade, which should significantly change their scoring attack and journeyman center Brendan Haywood, who should solidify the depth at the position. In the draft, the Bobcats have high hopes for the No. 2 pick out of Kentucky, forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, who should become a fixture in the team's offense. The team also secured great value in the late first round with the selection of another small forward in Jeffrey Taylor, who should improve the team's flexibility on the wing and shooting guard positions. In regards to the rest of the roster, the team is relying heavily on point guard Kemba Walker to get the offense up and moving, as well as Ramon Sessions to spell him throughout games. Ben Gordon provides a massive improvement to the shooting guard position, while Kidd-Gilchrist is expected to slide into the starting small forward spot. At power forward, Byron Mullens provides great size for the position, and the depth behind him is solid with Hakim Warrick and Reggie Williams. At center, the free agent pickup of Brendan Haywood should pay dividends, and the team also boasts solid backups in Bismack Biyombo and DeSagana Diop. After a season like the one the Bobcats endured last year, the team has nowhere to go but up to get back to respectability in the Eastern Conference. The team has laid the groundwork for a fast-paced scoring attack with stout defense, so only time will tell if the Bobcats' mix of talented young players and seasoned veterans can gel into a cohesive unit that other teams can rightly fear.
2011 Charlotte Bobcats Season Preview
Although they the Charlotte Bobcats made an early exit from the playoffs last season after getting swept by the Orlando Magic in the first round, the year had to be considered a success for Charlotte by Bobcats fans. The young team made its first playoff appearance in franchise history, and found a talented core of players that may be able to lead them back to the postseason this year in a highly competitive Eastern Conference. Stephen Jackson provided a spark in the offense last season, and that should not change much. The 10-year veteran averaged 20.6 points per game a season ago, and dished out a respectable 3.7 assists per game. Jackson will be joined by Gerald Wallace, who has highlight reel ability and brought down 10 rebounds a game last season. While Jackson and Wallace provide coach Larry Brown with veteran leadership, the team has a collection of young talent as well. Power forward Tyrus Thomas is a presence on defense, and rookie guard Sharron Sherron Collins should be able to replicate his success at Kansas. Forward Boris Diaw should be a factor as well, as he led the team with four assists a game.
2010 Charlotte Bobcats Season Preview
The 2009-2010 season will be the Charlotte Bobcats' sixth year as an NBA franchise, and its second season under Head Coach Larry Brown. Brown and Bobcats fans are hoping the club gels this year to make a run at the Eastern Conference playoffs. Ten additional wins should get Charlotte a postseason berth and Brown's job is to get that done.
2009 Charlotte Bobcats Season Preview
The Charlotte Bobcats will take the court for their fifth season as an NBA expansion team this season. After a dismal record of 32-50 in the 2007-2008 season, co-owner Michael Jordan replaced head Sam Vincent with veteran Larry Brown. This season could be the breakout season the Bobcats need to find their way to their first NBA finals appearance.
