The Charlotte Bobcats in 2013-14
The Charlotte Bobcats are on the prowl this season, ready to take down some of
the top teams in the National Basketball League. The Bobcats have a young group of players that could make some major noise
this season if they can come together as a team, and fans of the Bobcats are eager to see just how high this club can climb
in 2013-14. The Bobcats are a member of the Southeast Division in the Eastern Conference of the NBA, a division that features
playoff contenders like the Miami Heat, Atlanta Hawks and Washington Wizards. The Bobcats face these opponents on a regular
basis which has given this young team some valuable experience against the kind if competition they'll face in the postseason
if they can play well enough to earn a seed in the Eastern Conference. The Bobcats have high hopes for the 2013-14 season,
and the fans are following suit.
The Bobcats have had some tough losing seasons as of late, but the organization showed
the determination to improve as quickly as possible in the offseason offseason with the signing of free agent big man Al Jefferson.
Jefferson is one of the best scoring players in the low post in the entire league, and his presence should be felt immediately
in Charlotte. Big Al, as he's known around the league, has a knack for getting buckets down low, something the Bobcats have
been sorely lacking over the last few seasons. The team has an exciting young point guard in Kemba Walker, as the third-year
pro is coming off a very promising sophomore campaign and looking good again in 2013-14. There are a lot of young players
that the Bobcats will be looking to see contribute down the stretch this season. There is no question that this entire organization
has playoffs on the brain.

Charlotte Bobcats Trivia
Where did current Charlotte Bobcats point guard Kemba
Walker attend college?
The answer is the University of Connecticut, where Walker helped lead the Huskies to the National
Championship. Walker was selected by the Bobcats in the lottery of the NBA Draft shortly thereafter. While Walker came into
the league with a reputation of being a bit careless with the ball, he quickly adjusted his game to the stricter and more
challenging NBA, putting together a breakout campaign in his second pro season. Walker is now one of the cornerstones for
what this organization is trying to build.
Charlotte Bobcats Postseason History
The Charlotte Bobcats
have only been around since 2004, and as is the case with most expansion teams, the Bobcats have struggled to make the playoffs
with regularity. The Bobcats did make the playoffs on one occasion, in the 2009-10 season. The team was solid that season
thanks to the veteran presences of Gerald Wallace and Stephen Jackson, but Charlotte ran into a tough team in the Orlando
Magic in the first round of the postseason and were swept 4-0. Magic big man Dwight Howard was simply too much for the Bobcats
to handle, but fans were happy to reach the postseason for the first time in franchise history. The Bobcats are looking to
return to the playoffs as soon as this season, and the fans would be overjoyed to see it happen.
The Charlotte Bobcats have some fantastic fans that pack the house every time they host a quality NBA opponent.
The fans don't have much experience cheering for the Bobcats in the playoffs, but they're ready to do so as soon as the Bobcats
can reach the postseason. These fans love the Bobcats, and for good reason, as the city lost the Hornets years ago. That franchise
has been named The Pelicans, and the Hornets name is coming back to Charlotte next season. Get out to see the Bobcats in the
playoffs this season if they're able to secure a spot in the postseason.
