Steve Clifford compares Jeremy Lin and Kemba Walker with Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson

The Charlotte Hornets added quite a few interesting veterans to their roster this summer, but none are more of a question mark than Jeremy Lin. After fighting through a tough year with the Los Angeles Lakers, Lin is looking to reestablish himself as a productive player. The only problem is Charlotte already has a franchise point guard, meaning Lin won't be able to find much playing...

Kemba Walker and Jeremy Lamb; Batman and Robin Together Again

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...

Kemba Walker & Jeremy Lin; Charlotte Hornets’ New 1-2 Punch at Point Guard

Hello again Hornets fans.  Is it crazy that I was most excited about Jeremy Lin as our free agent signings began?  It wasn’t the trade for Batum or moving Lance to the Clippers.  It wasn’t juggling Matt Barnes to the Grizzlies for Luke Ridnour for Jeremy Lamb either.  It was truly Jeremy Lin.  I was always intrigued by the guy.  Anyone who watched him in New York or even...

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...

Making Sense of the Hornets’ Offseason

Much was expected from the newly branded Charlotte Hornets this past season. After a somewhat surprising run to the playoffs in the previous season, in addition to the momentum gained from an offseason that involved signing Lance Stephenson, another strong playoff run was in their foreseeable future. At least to most it seemed. However, right from the start of the season it was a...

Jerian Grant would give Hornets greater size at point guard

At 6'5, Jerian Grant is among the bigger point guards in the draft. That size, along with Grant's myriad other skills, could greatly benefit the Charlotte Hornets. While Kemba Walker is a talented guard, he gives up a lot of size on defense with his slight (though wiry) frame and generously-listed 6'1 height. Grant would give the Hornets a whole new dimension on both sides of the...

Hornets' Al Jefferson has season of ups and downs, with a reunion for good measure

Kemba Walker is the youthful face of the franchise. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist could be the cornerstone around which the team builds. But Al Jefferson is the very definition of who the Charlotte Hornets are -- and who they can be.It's fair to call 2014-15 a disappointment for Big Al. He averaged "just" 16.6 points and 8.4 rebounds in 30.6 minutes per game this season. Those are solid...

Improving his outside shot could be nearly impossible for Hornets' Kemba Walker

As the plight of Rajon Rondo over the past few seasons demonstrated in crystal-clear clarity, it's really hard for a point guard to be effective in today's NBA if he can't shoot from outside. And that's a bit of conventional wisdom that should scare Kemba Walker and the Hornets.Walker is a fantastic player, with a dynamite ability to get to the rim, excellent court vision and speed...

Charlotte Hornets: playoffs mean big bonuses for players

Let’s just say, the eastern conference is weaker than Dzhokar Tsarnaev’s defense trail in Boston this week.  At 33-45, it’s baffling that the Charlotte Hornets have a glimmer of playoff opportunity.  After losing to the Toronto Raptors by 18 points, fans are ready to go ahead and cash out…it’s closing time.

Hornets falter at home, lose to Nets 91-88

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...
