23-Point Lead Wasn’t Enough; Hornets Fall to the Magic

105-100 Let that sink in Hornets fans.  Had I written this last night, it would be filled with a ton of expletives, followed by screaming to have every player and coach’s head on a spike.  I’ve calmed down now.  Sitting on Twitter while watching the game may be bad for my health.  I know it makes me be an unhappy fan, and the biggest result is that I start feeding off of...

Henderson yet to take advantage of extended playing time with Hornets

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- It appears that Gerald Henderson will be spending his time with the Charlotte Hornets the exact same way it started when he was drafted by the then Bobcats in 2009. Back in his rookie season, under the guide of head coach Larry Brown; Henderson rarely saw the court in playing just over eight minutes a game. Rarely did he play in meaningful moments. But then Brown...

Hornets Fall to 4-8 with Loss to the Pacers

A game that ended with a final score of 88-86 makes it sound like the game was quite the barn-burner.  Well, I guess in theory it was a barn-burner in the sense that many Hornets fans are ready to burn their barns over the inconsistency and losses.  I am on Twitter for most every broadcast of the games, and I read what fans say.  I try my best to not go defending like a crazy...

Hornets Fall Short in New York

So, do we blame the second loss in a row on being tired, lack of chemistry, poor shooting, a 5-second call that wasn’t 5 seconds… I can say we lost 93-96 to the Knicks.  Why?  Well, that was the score.  What did we do wrong?  Does it paint a fair picture of how the team played?  Not really.  Looking quarter by quarter, the teams each played a decent game.  Both teams shot...

6 Hornets That Could Sway the Season

There are 6 Charlotte Hornets players on my mind right now that could possibly be key factors that could change the way the world looks at the Hornets from the 2014-2015 season on. Now, I need to clarify 2 things for everyone. First, I excluded Al Jefferson because he’s going to do what he does, and he already fits the mold of a player that WILL sway the season  He swayed us last...

Our 2014-15 Charlotte Hornets…For Now

Ladies and gentlemen, I’d like to share with you the current Charlotte Hornets that are on the team for the 2014-2015 season.  Granted, we are still in the free agency period, and signings and trades can always happen, but as of noon today, this is what we are looking like.  Also, this is my best guess at the starting 5.  Power forward will probably be a battle to see who fits...

Trade Street Post Presents: Draft Options – First Suggestion

I spent 2-1/2 hours studying the players that are in the NBA draft.  The one thing I discovered is that if a player in the top 6 to 7 doesn’t fall to us, we may want to look into trading down.  I only say this because most of the projections that they have the Hornets drafting at 9 have a big plus and a big minus.  At least 3 that I looked at has great offense and bad to questionable...

Following dramatic improvement, Bobcats look to take next step

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- During his end-of-year press conference, Bobcats coach Steve Clifford began unsolicited to list the factors that went into why his team went to the playoffs this season. To no surprise he listed Al Jefferson, Kemba Walker and Josh McRoberts as the first three reasons, in that order. Then his list went to the "good, good play that we got from our role players...
