Now that New Orleans has changed its name from the Hornets to the Pelicans, Charlotte fans are hoping to ditch the Bobcats and go back to being called the Hornets, their original nickname.
BEST OF MAXIM
Ever since it became official that New Orleans will drop "Hornets" and become the "Pelicans" next season, Charlotte is in full force trying to reclaim the team's original nickname to replace "Bobcats." Titled "Let's take back our buzz," (which sounds like some motto for hard core drinkers) check out the video of the push for "...
According to Rick Bonnell, Tyrus Thomas didn’t even join the team on the latest West Coast road trip. I find this stunning, considering that coach Dunlap has shown he’ll still play guys who are willfully insubordinate (Ben Gordon) or who are willfully trying to eat their way onto a future season of The Biggest Loser [...]
About a third of the way through the NBA season, an ESPN advanced statistics analyst, said that New Orleans Hornets’ rookie, Austin Rivers was having the worst season in NBA history and at the time he may have been right. However, over the last month he has shown steady improvement. What was most alarming, was his field goal percentages, which were laughably awful, but recently...
NBA legend Michael Jordan has more to worry about, as it's being reported that another woman (making it two) have come out and claims that Jordan is INDEED the father of her child.According to Gossip Extra, the woman, Pamela Smith, is claiming that Jordan and her had sex, which produced a love child. She's suing Jordan for child support and also to prove (by way of a paternity...
Tonight, I forgot there was a game. Apparently, so did the Charlotte Bobcats. That’s a bad joke thousands of people make all the time. I often make it. My dear sweet, long suffering mother often asks, “Are the Bobcats playing tonight?” I respond with the incredibly ingenius “Well, they were scheduled to, but they forgot [...]
New Orleans Hornets rookie Anthony Davis had a different call of duty Monday.
Davis, returning from a shoulder injury and presumably a lot of COD: Black Ops, showed off his potential for dominance: 17 points (6-of-13 shooting, 5-of-9 free throws), 15 rebounds and four blocks in 39 minutes. The No. 1 pick isn't likely in rookie-of-the-year contention, but he's piecing together...
Newsflash: Michael Jordan is worth a lot of money, that is, if you count $650 million as a lot. As insane as it sounds (and it sounds incredibly insane), MJ still pulls in $60 million in royalties…ANNUALLY.
So when Jordan went and spent $2.8 million, it was no big thing. But hey, it’s still a $2.8 million home. He bought it to not live out of a suitcase when he’s in town...
Tyrus Thomas is signed through the 2015 season.
New Orleans rookie forward Anthony Davis and Orlando guard Jameer Nelson both are returning to their respective lineups for Monday night's game between the Hornets and Magic.
Hornets coach Monty Williams says Davis is ready to return with no playing time restrictions after missing two games with a left shoulder sprain.
Magic coach Jacque Vaughn says Nelson also is without playing...
We need a silver lining, right? Gillie the Kidd shot 50% from the floor, was perfect from the free throw line, and grabbed 6 boards.
Watching Bobcats games as of late is becoming hazardous to any fan's health. It is one thing to watch a young team develop its youth, and see its youth growing while they lose by reasonable margins, but it is something completely...
The Bobcats didn’t put up much of a fight on Friday night against the Utah Jazz. Not only did backup center Enes Kanter absolutely destroy them for an impressive 20-20 line, but they also lost by 30 and scored just 68 points. Good thing they have an equally dysfunctional squad on the docket on Sunday [...]
