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...

Report: Legendary shooter Mark Price leaving Hornets' coaching position

As NBA fans who appreciate when a player's shooting form resembles something other than a Mobius strip, we should all be grateful to former NBA star Mark Price for the work that he has done with the Charlotte Hornets' Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.

Bulls Too Much for Hornets; Lose 98-86

Our 30 – 39 Hornets are so frustrating to watch at times.  Offensive schemes become frustrating, missed shots become frustrating, poor defense becomes frustrating, and overall, this team is just frustrating.  I love my Hornets, but I just don’t get it.  I don’t choose to celebrate from night to night as to whether or not we are the current 8th seed.  If I did, I’d take...
