Charlotte Hornets: 4 reason why Kemba Walker will be an All-Star

The Charlotte Hornets have not experienced much success in the past decade.  With ten years of existence as the Bobcats and only two playoff appearances, fans in Charlotte are praying for a winner.  Heck, even with ten years to choose from, those darn Bobcats only managed to produce one All-Star player:  Gerald Wallace in 2009-2010.  I predict that the Hornets will have two or...

Charlotte Hornets: Predicting Each Starter’s Stat Line

Thanks to one signature, this summer quickly got spicy for the Charlotte Hornets.

Charlotte Hornets: Initial thoughts about the 2014-2015 schedule
