Charlotte Hornets: Predicting Each Starter’s Stat Line

Thanks to one signature, this summer quickly got spicy for the Charlotte Hornets. When Lance Stephenson finished crossing his surname’s single “t”, the Hornets instantly jumped from a fringe playoff team to a postseason lock, and the addition of the flashy wing made the draft-night add-ons of Noah Vonleh and P.J. Hairston seem significantly more substantial. The team lost...

Why Steve Clifford is a perfect fit for the Charlotte Hornets

Coming off another horrible season that saw the franchise finish with a 21-61 record, the Bobcats front office needed to make the correct choice when hiring a new coach in the summer of 2013.  The list of potential candidates ranged from former Portland Trailblazers and Seattle Supersonics (BRING BACK THE SONICS!) coach Nate McMillan to former Los Angeles Clippers and Phoenix Suns...

Charlotte Hornets: 5 Best Building Blocks

All sights are set on the future for the Charlotte Hornets. The Bobcats were stuck in the NBA’s cellar for four seasons, and after a 7-59 season which included a 23-game losing streak, Charlotte basketball was the league’s biggest punchline for two years straight.

Charlotte Hornets: Initial thoughts about the 2014-2015 schedule

Mid-August is a pretty boring period on the NBA’s calendar.  There are no monster dunks, ankle-breaking crossovers, or last second buzzer beaters this time of year.  Even the four-letter-network-who-shall-not-be-named has some difficulty coming up with NBA news once the free agency period slows down.  But have no fear die-hard NBA nerds fans; the NBA released its schedule for...

What a Difference a Year Makes for Kemba Walker in Charlotte

Last summer in Brooklyn at Gersh Park Kemba Walker gets the steal, and then embarrasses the helpless defender with a nasty crossover, then hits Lance Born Ready Stephenson with a dazzling no look pass and then Stephenson is fouled but still scores to complete the spectacular three point play. The crowd goes berserk! After the game the two former New York high school basketball legends...

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.

Charlotte Hornets: Cody Zeller must step up

 “With the 4th pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, the Charlotte Bobcats select Cody Zeller from Indiana University.” When these words echoed out of former NBA commissioner David Stern’s mouth, the Charlotte fan base had a very mixed reaction.  Some of their reactions probably ranged from: “Why not take Kentucky freshman Nerlens Noel?” “I hope he does not end up like Adam Morrison...

Michael Jordan Shows He’s Still Got It, Makes 11 Shots In A Row (Video)

Once upon a time, the Charlotte Bobcats won seven games in a lockout-shortened season. It was so bad for the Bobcats that it made one wonder if it was possible for team owner Michael Jordan to come back from retirement at age 49 and make an impact on the team. Of course, that was a pipe dream for NBA fans since MJ hasn’t played competitively since 2003. But every once in awhile...

The purpose of this week’s take is to provide closer look at the Hornets’ new backup point guard Brian Roberts.
