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...

One thing Hornets fans (and the rest of us) have left to look forward to this season

Suffice it to say that this has been a disappointing season for the Charlotte Hornets and their fans. The team was eliminated from playoff contention on Friday. It lost its home finale on Monday night, so the fans didn't even get to go home happy. And it seems like there's another injury to Al Jefferson or Kemba Walker every week. Other than the emergence of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist...

2014-2015 Season Obituary: The Charlotte Hornets Weren’t Born Ready To Return To The Playoffs

This season, something important was restored in Charlotte. Decades ago, the NBA came to a college basketball-loving part of the United States, accompanied by a genuine buzz. The Hornets showed that there was more than enough basketball for a fan’s entertainment dollar in the Carolinas. That identity — the one carried by the likes of Alonzo Mourning and Larry Johnson in the franchise’s...

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. Charlotte Hornets come up short when it counts. This was quite...

Tired Hornets Fall to Celtics, 116-104

I used to always talk about the Bobcats losing games that they shouldn’t have and winning games that they shouldn’t have.  I used to talk about how when we would play a team worse than us, we would play down to their level.  Last night, at home, with playoff implications pending, the Hornets did not need to lose the game.  Unfortunately, they did lose, 116 – 104.  The Celtics...

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...
