Clifford: Hornets play better, win more with Kidd-Gilchrist

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Charlotte coach Steve Clifford can rattle off a dozen reasons why the Hornets gave small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist a big contract extension. But in Clifford's mind it all came down to one basic fact: ''When he's on the floor we play well; when he's not on the floor we don't.'' The numbers bear that out. The Hornets were 62-55 with Kidd-Gilchrist in the...

Hornets give smart extension to Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

There was a time when many considered Michael Kidd-Gilchrist the player least likely to be a bust from the 2012 NBA Draft. That was part of the reason few batted an eye when the (then) Charlotte Bobcats selected him with the second overall pick in the draft. Fast-forward a few years (and a name change) later, and the backers of his stock have clearly decreased in number. Don...

Should Frank Kaminsky be in the Hornets' starting lineup?

The Charlotte Hornets believe Frank Kaminsky can be a star. They love where he's currently at and what he can hopefully become. But should Kaminsky start as a rookie? Hoops Habit's Andrew Kennedy takes a look right here:"Everyone knows the direction the NBA is going: lineups featuring more position-less players with the emphasis on interchangeability and more outside shooting.

Offseason review: Charlotte Hornets

The Charlotte Hornets fell back last year after a playoff run the prior season. Injuries to Al Jefferson, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Kemba Walker, among others, and the ill-fated signing of Lance Stephenson were all contributors to the tough season. Gerald Henderson was forced to carry the offense for large chunks of the campaign. That isn't ideal for a team with playoff aspirations...

Guaranteed, Non-guaranteed, & Partial-Guaranteed Contracts; Hornets Additions and Where They Stand

Is anyone else as confused as I am about the team additions and the contracts that we keep hearing about?  It can all get pretty confusing at times.  First was Aaron Harrison being signed after Summer League ended in Orlando.  I heard first that the contract was non-guaranteed, and then I heard Rick Bonnell say that it was partial-guaranteed.  Let me define what these terms mean...

Kemba Walker and Jeremy Lamb; Batman and Robin Together Again

So what’s with the Batman and Robin title?  There was an article on Bleacher Report that referred to the 2 in college as such because it seemed like Lamb was always there to help Walker when he was struggling to carry the team.  Bobcats/Hornets fans understand Kemba and the Batman comparison.  Many times, Kemba has taken over games when he had to.  He has never been afraid...

Kemba Walker & Jeremy Lin; Charlotte Hornets’ New 1-2 Punch at Point Guard

Hello again Hornets fans.  Is it crazy that I was most excited about Jeremy Lin as our free agent signings began?  It wasn’t the trade for Batum or moving Lance to the Clippers.  It wasn’t juggling Matt Barnes to the Grizzlies for Luke Ridnour for Jeremy Lamb either.  It was truly Jeremy Lin.  I was always intrigued by the guy.  Anyone who watched him in New York or even...

Grading the Toronto Raptors' Bismack Biyombo pickup

The Toronto Raptors have been very busy this offseason in regards to free agency.  A team that desperately needed defense, the Raptors have gone out and attempted to fix the problem by bringing in some quality defenders at all three areas, from the guards, to the wings, to the bigs.  While their offense may take a step backward, their defense will almost certainly be much improved...

Merging New Shooters With The Rest Of The Hive

If the three-point shot is both the present and future of the NBA, the last season's performance beyond the arc by the Charlotte Hornets must have meant they were stuck in the past. The Hornets finished a disappointing 14-15 campaign ranked dead last in three-point field goal percentage (31.8) while also finishing just 24th in attempts per game. You don't have to point to much more...

On Mo Williams, regrets and homecomings

Mo Williams was my first regret. The Cleveland Cavaliers were in the midst of one of the worst single seasons in NBA history and had just allowed Chase Budinger to drop 30 points on them as the Houston Rockets provided Cleveland with its 28th loss in its last 30 games. It was the night of the league’s trade deadline and Williams in street clothes nursing an ankle injury. As I stood...

LeBron James proved that you can come home against all sorts of strange odds. That makes the latest bit of Cavaliers news almost pedestrian, but it sure is a lot of fun. Mo Williams appears to be following in James’ footsteps, just one season later as he’s reportedly spurning several other contenders to sign a two-year deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers worth $4.3 million.
