Charlotte Bobcats (7-52) vs. New Orleans Hornets (18-42) Game Preview -- 7 p.m.

Today's Tunes:

Game Overview: I dunno, stuff is going to happen in this game and junk. Eric Gordon will probably do something or another and Gerald Henderson will try to stop him from doing those things. But let's not worry about that. It's a beautiful day out. Let's all grab a cold 40, lemonade or ice tea or whatever and sit on someone's porch swing and enjoy the springtime and watch the day pass us by.

Just you. And me.

And Hologram Tupac.

And we'll just be relaxing, watching people walk by, and chatting about the impact of the changing media on our brains. Are we losing our ability to concentrate on long-form readings? Is the internet changing how our brain works for the worse?

I'll say, well, perhaps. I can feel it sometimes. And then Hologram Tupac will bring up how he thinks it's more about reading on the internet and how he can't read long research studies on a computer, but in a paper medium, he finds little difficulty. And you'll bring up the cell phone's ability to interrupt and we'll reflect on how going out of our way to turn off or ignore going on our phones has become the ultimate sign of respect in social situations.

And then I'll say, "So what do you think about the Bobcats this year?"

And Hologram Tupac will reply, "LOLWUT"

Key Matchup: Gerald Henderson vs. Eric Gordon -- this should be a fun matchup. One excels at defense, the other at offense.
