New Faces, New Skills; How will it all fit together?

This summer, the Charlotte Hornets made a good bit of roster changes.  So many, in fact, that there are 7 new players on the roster right now for the 2015-16 season.  You all know what the next statement usually is when there is a roster change as dramatic as this: It’s going to take time for this new group to mesh.  The loss of Josh McRoberts and addition of Lance Stephenson...

The Draft is Coming – Who Will Join the Swarm?

So many things dance in my head when the NBA draft comes around.  I wonder what our team needs are.  I wonder if the BPA will be a player that we need the most.  I wonder if we will trade up to get to that BPA that we need.  I wonder if we will trade the pick for some vet help, or for multiple lower picks.  I guess, like many fans, I just wonder and speculate what exactly the...

The defense never seemed to string together enough stops to compensate for the horrid offensive performance. The Hornets’ lack of offense was the main cause of their loss, but let’s give Philadelphia’s...

Hornets Hardball! Bugs win 5th Game in a Row at Home

The Hornets had to face the Washington Wizards for the 2nd time this week.  The hope for our Hornets was that they could repeat their success that they had in Washington on their own floor.  I must say that the game itself looked like a heavyweight title bout of sorts.  The referees were not very nice to us on our own court.  There were many fouls called on the Hornets that shouldn’t...

The Charlotte Hornets finished off a 3-game road trip on Monday in Washington, and managed to come out with a win.  A 2-1 road trip is a pretty good trip, considering the absence of Kemba Walker, Bismack Biyombo, and Marvin Williams for 2 of the 3 games. The Hornets played their usual brand of precise defense, holding Washington 12 points under their season average, while stepping...

Roberts not worried about filling Walker's shoes

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- When Brian Roberts was signed as a free agent by the Charlotte Hornets last summer, practically nobody noticed. Those that did all asked the same question, "Who's that?" Well, midway through the NBA season, nary a Hornets fan or media type is asking that question any longer as Roberts, who's in his third season in the league, has done well for himself as a backup...

No Kemba? No Problem; Hornets Win 2 in a Row While Kemba Rests a Sore Knee

I say, “No Kemba, no problem”, but to be honest, I was very nervous about playing a game without Kemba and Al. It’s no secret that we struggle to score the ball, and as soon as I heard that Kemba was having left knee soreness due to some cysts that have been in there since high school, my stomach began to churn. The last thing the Hornets needed was another loss, after losing...
