    In about 6 weeks the NBA schedule will likely be released

    who do you predict the Hornets open up against? Do they open up at home or on the road?

    God I want the Clippers at home.

    I bet we open up with the Thunder on the road.

    Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams

    Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston

    Being realistic, it's not like we are going to compete. I'm sure ESPN will want to have uni brow on tv a couple times, but I doubt they open with it either.

    Both Greg oden and Blake Griffin made their debuts on national television. I'm sure Davis will too.

    it is going to feel weird having a player that almost the whole nation loves. Im just hoping the pressure to perform isnt too much for AD

    And LeBron vs. the Kings his first game too. I agree that we'll open up on TNT or ESPN with AD leading the way.
    I love the Hornets, but now am all on board with the PELS.... Geaux Pelicans!

    This would be so awesome

    Best opener for us would be Hornets vs Bobcats

  12. #12
    I was just going to post this...

    My guess is either Hornets at Clippers, Clippers at Hornets, or Hornets at Warriors or Kings.

    I think it will be Davis vs Robinson first game of the season

    I they are going to put us on opening night, it would only make sense for it to be at home.

    The NBA loves to stick to their big market stereotypes for opening night games. I mean, look at the Christmas games from this previous season. I think it was like Heat, Clips, Bulls, Knicks, Lakers, etc. All mega teams.

    I hope we verse clips or an easy team so Anthony Davis doesn't have a terrible debut against someone like Howards :3

    John Wall was also on TNT for his debut. Davis will open the season on national television.

    Hornets v. Clippers has a great shot. Keeps up with the trend of rookie phenoms debuting on national TV, budding rivalry (Smith-Griffin incident, Reggie Evans flop), CP3/Gordon vs. old teams, two most electric athletes in the game squaring off in Davis & Griffin...plenty of storylines there for ESPN/TNT to play up.

    Home or road would be up for good debate. At NOLA would obviously be the more electric atmosphere, but at LA would please that west coast 10:00/10:30 Eastern time slot, so either way would have its advantage for the networks.

    Gordon would score 60 on the Clippers on a season opening national tv game, I mean that's if he's healthy
