After the state's previous team relocated to New Orleans in 2002, the state of North
Carolina was without a basketball franchise. This was rectified in 2004 when the
expansion team of the Charlotte Bobcats was created. The team is owned by the
league's most famous basketball player, Michael Jordan. While success has not come
to the Bobcats yet, fans in North Carolina are always eager to buy Charlotte Bobcats
tickets. Despite having plenty of great college teams, there is interest all around
this part of the country in the Bobcats. Fans come from cities such as Raleigh and
Durham and buy Charlotte Bobcats tickets to attend home games.
While the Bobcats have not had the greatest success, they have had a Rookie of
the Year in Emeka Okafor and Gerald Wallace in the NBA All-Defense First Team.
The Bobcats have yet to win a division, conference, or NBA title in their 8 years as
a franchise. In 2010 the Bobcats got their one and only playoff berth against the
Orlando Magic. While Charlotte Bobcats tickets sold well for the playoff clashes, they
were swept by the Magic and their season ended in disappointment.
The past two years have seen the Bobcats take drastic backwards steps in their
progression. While fans have continued to support the team through a poor spell,
the players and management have not repaid the faith. The 2011-2012 resulted in
a hugely embarrassing 7-59 season with a 23 game losing streak. The losing streak
and season record are both worst ever performances by a team in the NBA. Michael
Jordan has often been criticized by seasonal Charlotte Bobcats tickets holders for the
talent he has brought both through trades and draft picks.
The Bobcats played at the Charlotte Coliseum for one season before moving to the
Time Warner Cable Arena in 2005. The stadium cost $260 million to build, with a lot
of the money being recouped by Time Warner Cable's naming rights deal. The arena
can hold 19,077 fans (20,200 with expansion) and most times Charlotte Bobcats
tickets are sold out for home games. There is particular interest when major NBA
franchises come to town. The stadium has also played host to some of the biggest
names in music, such as Elton John, U2, and The Rolling Stones, making it a true hub
for entertainment in the area.
Fans of the Charlotte Bobcats have certainly been taken for a ride in the past few
years. The problem is that the highs have been a lot less frequent than the lows.
For a new team, their fan base is relatively large, with most games being sell outs.
Fans always buy Charlotte Bobcats tickets, no matter how badly the team is doing.
However, the end of last season saw a slight drop in Charlotte Bobcats tickets sales
because of the ridiculously long losing streak.
Head coach Paul Silas was replaced by Mike Dunlap in 2012. This will be Dunlap's
first major NBA job, having served as an assistant most of his coaching career.
Fans are concerned as they think there is not enough experience in the coaching
department or the management. Many are counting on Michael Jordan to help
turn the team's fortunes around by trading in some superstar names. Michael Kidd-
Gilchrist, a small forward out of Kentucky, was the second pick in the first round of
the NBA draft. The Bobcats will hope he can be a catalyst for the team showing a
huge improvement on last season. Fans who buy Charlotte Bobcats tickets will be
hoping for a winning season and even an outside chance at a playoff berth in 2012-

6-12-13: Toward the bottom of the standing is where you usually will find the Bobcats. This season was no different. Rookie head coach Mike Dunlap was unable to get the Cats out of the cellar and will not be given a second chance to do so. He was fired and replaced by Steve Clifford. Not all is bleak on the horizon for the Michael Jordan ran organization. With some nice young pieces and a strong position in this year’s draft, the Bobcats can continue to rebuild and possibly lure some free agents in the near future. Charlotte only won 6 games away from home this year. Kemba Walker led the team in scoring averaging 17 points per game. The Bobcats have the 4th overall pick in the 2013 NBA draft.
2-25-13: At 13-43, the Bobcats are in bottom basement of the Eastern Conference and going nowhere fast. With some good young talent and a rookie head coach it will be interesting to see how legendary owner Michael Jordan tries to right this ship. With tough matchups coming up against the Clippers and Jazz, it seems more losses are in the near future. Hopefully for the Bobcats, Kemba Walker can continue to grow into the all-star point guard he has the potential to be. The ‘Cats also saw some positive contributions from rookie swingman Jeffrey Taylor who is out of Vanderbilt. The 23 year old rookie has shown the ability to defend and finish strong around the rim at the NBA level. The Bobcats will need to buckle down and focus more on defense currently allowing over 100 points per game ranking 28th in the league.
11-26-12: The Bobcats have been a pleasant surprise for their fans. Not rolling into this season with a boatload of talent, they have competed hard and and currently boast a winning record of 7-5. Not even a month of the season is complete and already the Bobcats have matched their entire win total from last year when they set an all-time low in winning percentage (.106). With inspired play from young guard Kemba Walker and a full commitment from owner Michael Jordan, the Bobcats seem to be headed in a positive direction. With games coming up against the Thunder and division rival Hawks, it will be interesting to see if this team can remain above the .500 mark.
