Hi Forum, I've just registered now to make a comment on this
I've been lurking in this forum for...well, maybe since the beginning.
I lived in Wilmington, NC during my high school year when Charlotte
was first given a team Hornets, and had unbelivable attendance
record every home game. Since Wilmington was more of a Jordan
town, nobody around cared about Hornets though.
Although I followed Hornet during their years in Charlotte, I was
a bit away from NBA. After graduating from high school, I went
back to Japan (I'm Japanese living in Hong Kong right now, by the way),
and could not catch what's going on until internet became publicly
available by dial up connection, streaming information of NBA.
My attention wasn't caught until the talk that they may move out
due to issues with their profitability. Since then, I was a daily lurker in
RealGM and Observer's forum checking out what was happening.
So, even though I never had a chance to attend Hornets game or
Bobcats, I've been a following almost every one of their steps.
Now, thanks to faster connection of internet, sometimes I can actually
watch a game, read what fans are thinking, and especially visit this
Thank you everybody in this forum for giving me such a pleasure in life.
This may be my only post ever since I can't contribute much just
from obtaining information through internet, but it was really a good
chance to express my sincere gratitude to Bobcatsplanet.com
