You'll never believe this, but the Bobcats are facing 82 games this season, including 41 on the road. OUTRAGEOUS. GET ME DAVID STERN ON THE TELEPHONE NOW.
Anyway, before I get to the rest of the blah blah blah, here's where you can see the Bobcats' full schedule.
Charlotte will make their season debut at home against the Pacers on November 2.
They have two -- count 'em, two! -- nationally-televised games, the first being vs San Antonio on December 8, and the other being December 29 at home against New Orleans. Whee.
The good news is we're back to the 82 game schedule and away from those yucky back-to-back-to-backs. I counted 22 back-to-backs, which I can't remember if that's a good or bad number. Frankly, I don't think strength or perceived strength of schedule is that big a deal, especially for this team. This team has is not looking to shape up to be another squad like last year, but I don't think we should concern ourselves with scrutinizing April to see if our schedule is favorable to squeak into that 8th seed. You know, because LOL.
Oh, and the first Ben Gordon/Corey Maggette revenge game is January 6. FEEL THE EXCITEMENT.
