Golden State Warriors @ Charlotte Bobcats 12-10-12
I'm really looking forward to this game. Stephen Curry is back in form and playing in his home town. Harrison Barnes makes his first NBA appearance in NC. But the thing I'm most excited about is the way GS kind of mirrors this Bobcats team. After their playoff run they were saddled with some huge veteran contracts and enough talent to be 1st or 2nd round losers moving forward. They got rid of some baggage and went on a youth movement. They've kept their young core and added some key FAs and acquired talent through the draft. It's taken a few seasons but they're now starting to click and the future is looking bright. Hopefully we will be saying the same thing about our cats next season.
