So i sent in a question to Matt Rochenski at bobcats.com to ask MJ:
14. Jordan on if the franchise would ever consider playing overseas in a preseason game (From Twitter):
“Yes, I’m definitely pushing for that. I think it’s great to expand outside of Charlotte and outside the United States. We have a good brand and good team here as well. Why can’t the world see what we have?”
That was my question, kinda cool isn't it? lol anyway seems like good news for all those international fans who would dream to see a game!
I was recently traveling by train from Amsterdam to London. On the train to Brussells, I was wearing a Bobcats long sleeve t-shirt. I had a guy say he liked the Bobcats. I smiled huge and said how glad I was but due to the luggage and amount of passengers, we couldn't have a conversation. Either way, I was completely surprised as it was a Bobcats specific comment instead of a generic NBA comment.
That puts Europe just slightly behind the comments I get in the Raleigh-Durham area of NC when I wear a Bobcats shirt. Maybe Europe is an untapped market for us
