In this space last week, we saw that nearly every Charlotte Hornets fan that took part in the FanPulse survey felt confident in the direction of the team. At that time, the team was overachieving after a couple wins on the west coast. Fast forward a week and the opposite has happened, and the survey results show it.
Hornets fans are still about 80% confident in the team. It’s not as good as it was last week, but still significantly better than expectations coming into the season. The strong play of Devonte’ Graham and PJ Washington are most likely to thank for that, as their strong play has Hornets fans looking forward to the future.

The other questions on last week’s FanPulse survey centered around the load management ‘crisis’ sweeping the NBA. According to the survey results, just under 18% of NBA fans saw load management as an actual problem. The rest either didn’t care (38%) or begrudgingly accept it as part of today’s NBA (45%).
Those results are pretty interesting, because all the national coverage we see on bigger outlets make load management sound like a plague that’s threatening to kill the NBA. Fans don’t seem to care nearly that much. In fact, less than 10% of respondents thought that teams should be pushed to start their star players every game that they’re healthy.
Which answer most aligns with your thoughts on load management?

I like it/I don’t care. Teams should be able to do whatever they think gives them the best chance to win.
I don’t like it, but I understand why teams are doing it and don’t think they should be forced to stop.
I don’t like it, and I think the NBA should put rules in place to make sure it doesn’t happen.
