Charlotte Hornets: Draft options at #9

Willie Cauley-Stein With over an 80% chance at landing at the #9 spot in the draft heading into the draft lottery, the Hornets were a lock for a lottery pick with a very small chance at landing a top three pick.  The draft lottery has been less than generous at times to the Hornets in some key drafts in the past, most notably in 2012.   After posting the worst winning percentage...

Jeff Taylor celebrates Throwback Thursday with video of Taylor and MKG dunking on each other

The 2014-15 regular season has been over for more than a month already for teams that missed out on the playoffs, and that time away from the game is a good thing for most players. You need to recharge and relax after a grueling 82-game schedule, and that's what the summer is for. But it's also easy to start missing ball pretty quickly. So what's a player to do when there's no NBA...

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist left off of NBA's All-Defensive teams

When the NBA All-Defensive First and Second Teams were announced on Wednesday, Charlotte Hornets fans were probably shocked to see that Michael Kidd-Gilchrist had been left completely off of both teams. MKG was the defensive heart and soul of the Hornets in 2014-15, and he was one of the best wing defenders in the entire league. Surely there had to be room for him among the ten roster...

Five prospects the Charlotte Hornets might draft with the No. 9 pick

There's no question what need the Charlotte Hornets should look to fill this offseason. A total lack of outside shooting doomed the Hornets' postseason hopes. And while it's nice to hope that Lance Stephenson might bounce back next season to help space the floor in Charlotte, the Hornets can't put all their eggs in that "Born Ready" basket. Fortunately for Michael Jordan & Co...

Hornets have choice to make when it comes to their starting power forward

But for the Charlotte Hornets, that decision comes with a caveat.It's not as if Cody Zeller is some old, world-beaten veteran at this point. After all, Zeller is a member...

He averaged "just" 16.6 points and 8.4 rebounds in 30.6 minutes per game this season. Those are solid...
