All said, the former top 10 pick put up career highs in points per game (20.9) and three-point percentage (.371) en route to becoming a borderline All-Star performer.

But, relative to the insane talent currently occupying his position, he's not a star, either. Where does that leave the Hornets, a team that's desperately trying to push itself into the postseason? If Walker isn't elite, can they achieve their goals?Here's SB Nation's At the Hive with...

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...

Kemba Walker Fools Nikola Mirotic With Ankle-Breaking Crossover (Video)

Kemba Walker is still doing Kemba Walker things. The Charlotte Hornets guard made Chicago Bulls forward Nikola Mirotic look silly with a crossover and behind-the-back move that may have broken an ankle or two in the process. Not only did the former UConn star pull that off, but he followed it up by nailing a 3-pointer for good measure.
