This NBA vet really wants Kemba Walker in the All-Star game

Charlotte Hornets point guard Kemba Walker has never played in an NBA All-Star game. He's been a decent starter, but the position is perpetually loaded with superior talent. It's crowded, and even this year (the best of his career) feels like a long shot for Walker to crack through for an invitation to Toronto.But 35-year-old Sacramento Kings forward Caron Butler doesn't agree with...

Charlotte Hornets point guard Kemba Walker has been working on his three-point shot all year, and on Wednesday night he showed the Atlanta Hawks how good it's become.Walker scored 23 points in the win, but how he did it was more notable and impressive than the bottom-line box score. He nailed four threes on six attempts (Walker only missed four shots in the game), maintaining his...

Stephen Curry shakes Kemba Walker, nearly makes him fall down

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry is impossible to guard. Try to keep him from driving the lane, and he’ll drain three-pointers all game long. But if you attempt to crowd him on the perimeter, he’ll find a way to blow by you and get to the hoop. He did the latter in Monday night’s game against the Hornets, when he shook Kemba Walker so badly that he nearly fell down...

Watch Kemba Walker detonate a 38-point bomb on the Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers had no answer for Charlotte Hornets point guard Kemba Walker on Monday night. The 25-year-old was a monster from just about everywhere on the court, scoring at the rim, in the paint, at the elbows and behind the three-point line. He finished with 38 points—about 20 more than his season average and one fewer than his season high—on just 25 shots; it was...

Charlotte Hornets: playoffs mean big bonuses for players

Let’s just say, the eastern conference is weaker than Dzhokar Tsarnaev’s defense trail in Boston this week.  At 33-45, it’s baffling that the Charlotte Hornets have a glimmer of playoff opportunity.  After losing to the Toronto Raptors by 18 points, fans are ready to go ahead and cash out…it’s closing time. Charlotte Hornets come up short when it counts. This was quite...

Charlotte Hornets: Getting back on the right track

Kemba Walker The Hornets team that the people of Charlotte expected to see this season is finally showing up after a rough start to the year.  Winning only four of their first 19 games, this Hornets team that many had given lofty expectations was looking like a team that might end up playing more for a high draft pick than a run in the playoffs.  Many analysts had the Hornets...

Charlotte Hornets season preview: Player projections

The NBA’s preseason is in full swing, and I love every minute of it (even that minute that the NBA is taking away from the Celtics and Nets in Sunday’s exhibition contest).  The Charlotte Hornets are currently 2-2 after Wednesday’s loss to Detriot.  With four preseason games left before the regular season opener against Milwaukee, the Hornets are experimenting with different...
