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...

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...

Hornets Get Their man!

After what seemed like an eternity, the Hornets made good on their wish to make a splash in Free Agency. Lance Stephenson agreed to a 3 year, 27 million dollar contract with the Hornets early Wednesday morning. This move solidifies the Hornets as a playoff contender, and may make them a sexy pick to go deep into the playoffs this year. If Stephenson cuts down on the on court antics...

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...

Offseason update for your Hornets!

So now that Lebron is done holding us hostage, everything is starting to shake out for the rest of the league, including the Hornets. After a nice draft that included Noah Vonleh and P.J. Hairston, the team has been quite active in free agency. They have agreed to terms with Power Forward Marvin Williams, a veteran big man who is fundamentally solid, plus can help the young bigs...

The Hornets: A Quick Look Back and an Optimistic Look Forward

 The Hornets: A Quick Look Back and an Optimistic Look Forward  This morning I awoke with every intention of having breakfast and sitting down with a cup of coffee to write an assessment of the Charlotte Hornet’s draft picks and moves from Thursday night. While I managed to get the first two items crossed off my list, I just couldn’t bring myself to write a post-draft review...

Trade Street Post Presents: Draft Options – Second Suggestion

So yesterday I threw my hat into the ring in terms of making suggestions of what path that I thought that our Charlotte Hornets should go in with our roster.  Well, I want to go ahead and bring you another set of suggestions for everyone to review.  Yesterday’s ideas did garner a good point.  I was stockpiling shooting guards.  That is not a good thing. Over the course of writing...

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...

The Charlotte Hornets; Decisions, Decisions, Decisions

A lot of times I sit at work and I start thinking about things, and it inspires me to start writing an article about my Charlotte Hornets.  As the Finals are over and everyone can start to focus on the NBA Draft, free agency, and next season, one thing can be agreed upon; no one knows what is going to happen in this draft.  I’ve had fans and friends ask me what I think is going...

Let the Draft Opinions Swarm

I promised that I would continue to research what to do with our picks.  I’ve made mention before on Twitter that it was really cool that this year, the Hornets are having tons of pre-draft workouts with countless players.  Last year was another story; they really didn’t work many players out at all (possibly only Zeller).  Now we have 2 picks in a deep draft, with an opportunity...

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

For the record, I have stated many, many times before, my only true pro sports passion is the Charlotte Bobcats.  Well, now my only true sports passion has morphed into the teal and purple machine known as the Charlotte Hornets.  I only make mention of this because there haven’t been any articles from Trade Street Post in a while.  Honestly, there’s these NBA playoffs going...

Final Thoughts after the Bobcats Final Curtain Call

TSP Andrew: So, my mom and I attended the historical last Bobcats game to ever be played on Monday night. After the game, and the hour-long ride home, with lots of discussion, she put this article together. She said make changes as needed, but she’d like to see it out there for fans to read. Bobcats fans, Hornets fans, NBA fan…basketball fans. Well, I didn’t really see any...

Bobcats Bench Comes to Life in the 4th; Defeat the Hawks

I’m not even going to discuss the first 3 quarters of tonight’s game. I would, because we had one of those 2-point leads at the end of the 1st quarter, but by the end of the 3rd, I wanted to turn the game off…but I didn’t A 26-point first quarter, followed by an 18-point second quarter had me all set to just face our 12th straight loss to the Hawks. The 3rd quarter didn’t...

Jefferson’s Sixth Straight 20-10 Pushes Bobcats Past Philadelphia

When this time of the NBA season is in full swing, most teams are just sitting back and relaxing in their clinched playoff seeds. 2014 has a different feel for lower seeds, especially the Charlotte Bobcats. Charlotte is currently chasing the playoff position that was once in their grasp just a few days prior. After the Boston Celtics (Cats fell 106 to 103) surprisingly defeated the...

So, What’s Everyone Thinking?

Here we are with 3 games left in the season, playoff bound, and there are still folks hating on the Bobcats. I just don’t know what it will take to gain respect for the team finally. I’m also wondering what team everyone is wanting to face in the playoffs. Do we want to keep scraping to get to that 6 spot and stay there? Are we OK with 7, as long as we’re facing the Pacers...

The Bobcats Fantasy Buzz; #13

For those who don't know: While I will attempt to make recommendations based on all types of fantasy leagues, I will only be speaking to what is known as "advanced scoring" when it comes to actual fantasy production as I find standard scoring and 9 Category leagues to be boring.

Bobcats Best the Best, Beat Pacers by 22

(Photo Courtesy Jeff Siner – Charlotte Observer) Still struggling through the adversity of a 61 point effort by LeBron James just a few nights prior the Charlotte Bobcats knew they had to rebound fast before things began to get out of hand. Continuing an unneeded losing streak after a rough road trip would only hurt their possible higher playoff seeding. Who was the team...

Bobcats Sweep the Nuggets; Keep Rolling Towards the Playoffs

(Photo Courtesy Robert Lahser – Charlotte Observer) Ok.  Before the season got underway, I predicted that the Charlotte Bobcats would have over 30 wins and would make the playoffs.  I also had reason to believe that they would be a .500 team.  The more I thought about it last night, as the Bobcats beat the Denver Nuggets, the more I realized that it would mean that I believed...

Bobcats Claw Past the Wizards, Fighting for a Higher Playoff Seed

On January 7th, the Wizards came to Time Warner Cable Arena and beat the Bobcats soundly 97-83. Kemba Walker had 20 points but missed a lot of shots down the stretch, and Al Jefferson was a non-factor. They were going to need...
