In the following link, ESPN ranks each professional sports franchise (of the big 4 sports, duh). The overall rankings are based on Bang for Your Buck (BNG), Fan Relation (FNR), Ownership, (OWN), Affordability (AFF), Stadium Experience (STX), Players (PLA), Coaching (CCH), and Title Track (TTR). The Bobcats are 40th on the list, right behind the Panthers, who are at 39. Out of only the NBA Teams, we are NINTH. Somehow, we beat out the Lakers, who as much as I hate 'em, have a wonderfully unique pre-game ceremony, great players and coaching. I guess it's all the Fakers fans that can afford the tickets (115th in affordability) over the real fans. The Bobcats excelled in Coaching, Affordability (trust me, I know from experience), and Bang for your buck. They were close to the back of the pack in Title Track and Ownership. The best NBA team was the Magic, the worst being the Clippers.
