CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Bobcats center Al Jefferson sent an email to season ticket holders thanking them for their support and promising “this season was only the beginning.”

In the email sent Thursday through the team Jefferson writes, “When I decided to come to Charlotte, a lot of people wondered why - and I think we answered that question.”

Jefferson made an immediate impact in his first season in Charlotte averaging 21.8 points and 11.8 rebounds. The Bobcats went 43-39 and reached the playoffs for the first time since 2010.

The 10-year NBA veteran says he was touched by fans “MVP chants.”

Jefferson says, “I know there’s more to come. Next season we’ll be playing as the Hornets and we intend to make you even more proud of that name than you already are.”
