Hornets Forgotten Man Ready to Return

This offseason has been full of additions to the Hornets roster, both through the draft and free agency. From the drafting of a hometown boy in P.J. Hairston to the signing of the superstar in the making in Lance Stepenson, the Hornets jerseys will not be the only thing with a new look this year! Lost in shuffle, a piece of this team who may have a big part in its success, has been...

CHARLOTTE -- It's amazing to think that just two short years ago, the then-Charlotte Bobcats were coming off a season where they had just put together the worst winning percentage in NBA history. Now, the rebranded Charlotte Hornets are fresh off a season with a winning record and a trip to the playoffs, while season ticket sales are far exceeding expectations and are expected...

Hornets Season Review

Ok so we all know what happened last year, a surprise playoff berth by a quickly improving team. Al Jefferson started slow but became the most well rounded center in the league. Kemba Walker played his typical, 100 mph style but managed to play smarter. Josh McRoberts and Gerald Henderson played well, and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, let’s say underwhelming. The future is shining bright...

Charlotte Hornets with the #9 Pick – What do we Do With It?

The 2014-2015 Charlotte Hornets SG Thread

This line of conversation has been trickling through several of the other threads, so rather than talk about it all over the place, lets discuss it here.The question is: Who is our starting SG for the 2014-2015 season?Is it Gerald Henderson again? Can he improve enough on the offensive end to become a legitimate threat? At this point in his career, I think that he is what he is...

As the Season Comes to a Close, and the Playoffs are on the Horizon…

    Gotta love these Bobcats! (Photo Courtesy – Bobcats Brazil Twitter Account) As this Bobcats season began, I had high hopes for the team.  I believed that they could win 41 games.  I really did.  I believed that they could be a .500 win team.  When I attended the Media Day, I bought a Bobcats playoff hat from the 1 time the Bobcats made the playoffs.  While...

Rough Road Trip Ends with LeBron Scoring 61

I fully planned on writing a 2-for-1 recap of the OKC and the Miami game.  Sadly, I just can't bring myself to do it.  I want to mention a few brief observations of what went down, but I also want to point out that the last 2 losses were against the NBA Finals teams from last year.  The best part is that we were competitive.  Follow me... I can't lie.  We lost...

Bobcats Fall to the Bulls at Home

Last night was another of the Charlotte Bobcats’ Buzz City nights.  Muggsy Bogues was on hand as the first 10,000 fans got a bobble-head of him.  While the Bobcats are without Kemba Walker and Jeff Taylor, the matchup of these 2 teams is always one that is very fun to watch.  The introduction of “The Swarm” was apparent as they walked through the crowds outside, chanting...

Post Christmas Charlotte Bobcats Preview

Disgusting… Aside from the Warriors-Clippers battle that took place at ungodly hours of the night on the east coast, the NBA just served all of us a large Yuletide helping of the worst Christmas Day basketball platter since Naismith was around. Thank you, Stern & Co., for deciding that we needed to see the Knicks and Nets on the same day in two different god-awful games. How...

Bobcats Eek Out a Victory Against Eastern Conference Worst Bucks

(Courtesy Chuck Burton - AP) How about that new Hornets logo for 2014, huh?  I start with that statement because the game was a painful one to watch.  We have seen such great improvements from the Bobcats this season, and some pretty incredible games that I guess I’ve set the bar too high for every game.  Tonight would be one such game as the Bobcats were facing the Eastern...
