With the Bobcats entering the playoffs for only the second time in franchise history the “BUZZ” around the team is as loud as it has been in years. Much of the excitement extends into knowing the Hornets are ever so closer to returning as the NBA logo here in Charlotte. The other is the sheer impressive fashion that this team has turned around.

For once in franchise history the future looks brighter than the past. These are just some thoughts from the guys around Charlotte:

Head coach Steve Clifford, has taken what was a league worse 7-59 team in 11’-12’ to an above 500. record and the playoffs in his first year at the helm. This has the city talking about the future instead of discussing the Panthers.

Now the Charlotte Bobcats will take on the Miami Heat in the first round of the playoffs. The schedule breaks down like:

Game1: at Miami, Sunday at 3:30

Game2: at Miami, Wednesday at 7:00

Game3: at Charlotte, Saturday at 7:00

Game4: at Charlotte, Monday at 7:00

Game5: at Miami, Wednesday TBD

Game6: at Charlotte, Friday TBD

Game7: at Miami, Sunday TBD

This gives you a couple opportunities to enjoy some playoff basketball in Time Warner Cable Arena. Not many people expect the Bobcats to knock off the reigning NBA Champions but every game has to be played and you never know what magic can happen in a series. But really if you are a casual fan, get excited for what this team has done and continues to do on the court. If you attend a game you can expect a full amount of effort from every player on the team; this is just more credit to the leadership on the team and head coach Steve Clifford.

With all this said come out and enjoy some great playoff basketball. Go Bobcats!
