The Charlotte Hornets Media Day 2014 is officially in the books.  Typically, I make a fairly big production of it via articles to discuss what the results of 1-on-1 interviews were.  Don’t get me wrong, this year was the best Media Day I have attended with the Charlotte organization.  Getting to see the arena, donned in purple and teal, players sporting their new uniforms, and...
