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.

Too Much Heat in Miami; Hornets Drop 5th Straight

Hornets Fall to 4-8 with Loss to the Pacers

A game that ended with a final score of 88-86 makes it sound like the game was quite the barn-burner.  Well, I guess in theory it was a barn-burner in the sense that many Hornets fans are ready to burn their barns over the inconsistency and losses.  I am on Twitter for most every broadcast of the games, and I read what fans say.  I try my best to not go defending like a crazy...
