HORNETS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Chemistry Is Building as the Hornets with their 4th Straight

The Hornets look good on the court, and I’m not talking about those new purple jerseys. Anyone who has been watching knows exactly what I’m talking about. The team everyone paid to see is now taking the court…I mean, they have for the last 4 games. This is your 2014-2015 Charlotte Hornets. They are a team full of hustle, a motor that won’t quit, and a hunger to outperform...

Cody Zeller Posterizes Kenneth Faried (Video)

This doesn’t happen often to Kenneth Faried, and judging by Cody Zeller’s reaction, he doesn’t dunk on to many people either. The Hornets big man went to the rack hard, and surprised the manimal with a strong powerful finish at the rim.

Cody Zeller tames ‘The Manimal’ on a huge poster dunk

Usually it’s Kenneth Faried who puts opposing players on a poster, but this time he’s on the receiving end of a monster facial courtesy of Hornets forward Cody Zeller. Zeller was way out from the paint and had Faried one on one en route to the rim. Considering Zeller had the step on Faried, Zeller put “The Manimal” on a poster. The dunk was so sick, the Hornets bench was...

Hornets Fan Is Not Amused With Players Clowning (Video)

All she sees is their terrible record, but those guys really needed a laugh. This Hornets fan was not amused that Al Jefferson and Kemba Walker decided to share a huge laugh on the bench while leading the Nuggets at home. I think she expects a business like approach at all times until the Hornets start playing up to their potential. https://cdn3.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/d_ERF25AjpCLduOp8O2ZljZqgbQ...

Trade Ready: The Lance Stephenson Conundrum

The Charlotte Hornets appear to already be suffering from buyer’s remorse after signing Lance Stephenson to what looked like on the surface, at least, as a team-friendly deal worth $18 million over a span of two years (with Lance hitting the market again after the new TV deals kick in). But as of this moment, no trade appears to be imminent for the former Indiana Pacer. In less...

Hornets Win 2 in a Row; Is this the Turning Point?

Hornets fans, our beloved team has now won 2 games in a row.  I didn’t write an article after the victory in Philly because honestly, it was a game that we should have won.  I mean honestly, a team with 24 turnovers in a game should not win.  I feel bad for the Sixers though.  They really are trying.  They did have 12 blocks on the night.  That’s pretty impressive.  I...

Hornets beat Jazz for first time in six years

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Al Jefferson said he could have returned from a strained groin late in the fourth quarter. The Charlotte Hornets didn't need the big man for a change.

Charlotte’s Only Hope

You don’t have to look very hard to find a preseason predictions article, written just a scant few months ago, categorizing the Charlotte Hornets as a serious contender in the Eastern Conference. These power rankings by Marc Stein listed the Hornets as the fifth-best team in the East, a few spots ahead of the Atlanta Hawks. Lee Jenkins predicted that Charlotte coach Steve Clifford...

Report: No teams interested in trading for Lance Stephenson

While folks in Boston debate whether the Celtics got fleeced in the Rajon Rondo trade, at least the Celts were able to find a buyer for their polarizing star. The Charlotte Hornets weren’t so fortunate.   The Hornets have decided to keep mercurial shooting guard Lance Stephenson “for now,” ESPN.com reports, mainly due to lack of interest around the league. Seven teams...

Wash, Rinse, Repeat; Hornets Blow Yet Another Lead

My birthday present to my mom was to take her to a Hornets game.  Her birthday is Friday, so I wanted to take her to Wednesday’s Hornets game against the Phoenix Suns.  We have gone to Hornets games since before they were Bobcats and Hornets again, so that is always a great gift to give, and share. I’ve been pretty harsh on the players lately as to who should be traded.  If...

Charlotte Hornets guard Kemba Walker may have had an off night in Friday's game against the New York Knicks, going 4-for-15 from the field and finishing with 11 points and four assists.

Woman Tries to Reach for the Charlotte Hornets Mascot's 'Stinger'

For the Charlotte Hornets mascot life has to be tough. The team has improved when you consider the product that has been on the court the last couple of seasons, but it still has a ways to go before it can be called 'good.' So--as a result--people will sometimes become bored at the game and become easily distracted when he walks.It's all good of course--until they get touchy feely...

Charlotte Hornets: Gary Neal is lighting it up

The Charlotte Hornets have been pretty awful so far this season.  Charlotte currently sits at 4-11 and hosts 11-3 Portland on Wednesday. The offensive performances and defensive performances have been spotty all season.  They are simply finding ways to lose games instead of finding ways to win them. Gary Neal has been playing great this season. One bright spot for the Hornets...
