Lance Stephenson becoming a problem with the Hornets?

Lance Stephenson has a very large personality. The Charlotte Hornets knew that when they signed him, but are they still having issues with the 24-year-old shooting guard?

The Teal and Purple Lose 7th straight

We can’t just look at stats on this loss. Well, you can, but it doesn’t make the loss appear to be a cut and dry one. The Hornets had a better overall field goal percentage than the Trailblazers (43.6% vs. 42.4%). They also out-assisted the Blazers 29-21. Those are key numbers that can decide victories and losses. On this night, those weren’t the specifics to our loss....

Clifford Believes Stephenson Isn't A Star Yet, Must Work To Become One

Steve Clifford believes Lance Stepenson's slow start and adjustment in his first season with the Charlotte Hornets are partly due to his struggles to live up to external expectations. "To be fair, one of the things that's made it more difficult for him is that he came here and people proclaimed him as the next superstar," Clifford said Wednesday. "He's...

Charlotte Hornets: Gary Neal is lighting it up

The Charlotte Hornets have been pretty awful so far this season.  Charlotte currently sits at 4-11 and hosts 11-3 Portland on Wednesday. The offensive performances and defensive performances have been spotty all season.  They are simply finding ways to lose games instead of finding ways to win them. Gary Neal has been playing great this season. One bright spot for the Hornets...

Hornets Streak Stretches to 6; Lose to Clippers 113 – 92

So, I sound like a broken record.  Team chemistry isn’t there.  Players don’t know their role with the team.  The injury bug bit us early in the season.  We need some rest and time to practice.  Does that cover it all?  I really can’t remember anymore.  Those are all valid excuses as to why we aren’t winning games.  The problem is that the “teal and purple” honeymoon...

WATCH: Kemba Walker breaks Chris Paul's ankles

Kemba Walker can dance. And, boy, did he make Chris Paul “dance” in a match-up between the Charlotte Hornets and Los Angeles Clippers. Look at Kemba lose CP3 with this crossover: The Clippers do lead by halftime against the Hornets, 56-53.

Big Trouble in Charlotte?

As I sit here an just before tip-off of the Hornets and Clippers, I can’t help but feel like there are more questions about this team then before the season started. The turtle slow start that we have witnessed has already caused me to start questioning many of the decisions thus far. We knew that the team may have some struggles adjusting to one anothers play style and pace, but...

Too Much Heat in Miami; Hornets Drop 5th Straight

If you take the game as a whole, it was one of the better games the Hornets have played this season.  A solid effort was put forth by every player on the team, and we just came up short at the end.   5 players in double figures is a good thing, but not when you still lose.  Al Jefferson had 22 points and 12 rebounds, Lance Stephenson had 17 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists (he...
