If the NBA playoffs began today....

If the playoffs began today, the Charlotte Bobcats would play a best-of-7 first-round series against Orlando. Here are the current NBA standings. Charlotte is four games ahead of Chicago, with 10 to go, for the final playoff berth. Right now the Bobcats would be a No.7 seed, but they are a half-game out of sixth (where a matchup against Boston or Atlanta would await).

My column today explores how unusual this April will be for the Bobcats -- for once, it will actually matter. It has been eight years since the city of Charlotte has hosted NBA playoff games, but it's going to happen in a couple of weeks barring a total collapse by the hometown team. That'll be fun.

Anonymous 10:47 AM. - you read the article, so you do care. You've obviously never been to a Bobcats game. It's nothing short of entertaining.
