The Charlotte Hornets played their first home game since a five-game road trip on Wednesday at Time Warner Cable Arena. It wasn’t pretty. Though the Hornets were very much in the game until the end, and held the lead for a large portion, they didn’t seem to be doing much of anything well. The defense wilted at times, and the offense was woefully unreliable, as the team shot a...

Bulls Too Much for Hornets; Lose 98-86

Our 30 – 39 Hornets are so frustrating to watch at times.  Offensive schemes become frustrating, missed shots become frustrating, poor defense becomes frustrating, and overall, this team is just frustrating.  I love my Hornets, but I just don’t get it.  I don’t choose to celebrate from night to night as to whether or not we are the current 8th seed.  If I did, I’d take...

Charlotte Hornets: A fight against mediocrity

For fans of Charlotte sports teams, it has to be rough. Whether it be football or basketball, both seem to rest in the bowels of mediocrity.
