Stung: The Hornets lose Michael Kidd-Gilchrist for at least six months

The news was shattering for Charlotte on Monday afternoon: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, newly signed to an extension, will miss at least six months, and quite possibly the whole NBA regular season.  History is replete with examples of careers that have been derailed or severely diminished by injuries, so in that obvious sense, there’s never a good time for a promising — and improving...

Steve Clifford: Nicolas Batum will be '2nd or 1st option' in Hornets offense

The Charlotte Hornets have had a terrible offense over the past couple seasons. They've leaned on a successful defensive scheme to get them through ball games, but stopping the opposition only gets you so far in today's NBA. To make the postseason, Charlotte needs to score some points. Can new starting shooting guard Nicolas Batum open things up?Last year was a nightmare for Batum...

Which star center thinks Al Jefferson is the NBA's toughest cover?

Charlotte Hornets center Al Jefferson and his long list of post moves are the stuff of legend. Possessing a lethal combination of pump fakes, shoulder shimmies and deft touch around the basket, he's impossible to handle one-on-one. And at least one star center would rather guard anybody else.These two have faced off seven times since Andre Drummond entered the league in 2012; Jefferson...

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...

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...

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.
