  • Hornets Fly High in Hollywood!

    By Mark Buonocore on January 6, 2018
    The lights weren’t too bright for the Hornets as they took on the young Lakers in the City of Angels last night. On a day when the national talk was all about trading the Hornets All-Star, because the team has been struggling, the boys in teal and purple told everybody to hold that thought by thoroughly out-classing the Lakers 108-94. […]
  • Hornets Shock the Warriors

    By Mark Buonocore on December 30, 2017
    The Hornets kicked off a 4-game West Coast trip in style last night. In a game that basically no one gave them a chance to win, they put together arguably the best overall team effort of the season to shock the defending champs, 111-100 in Oracle Arena. The Hornets’ season was on life-support before last night’s game. Maybe this was […]
  • Rockets Blast Hornets

    By Mark Buonocore on December 14, 2017
    The Rockets are a really, really good team and the Hornets are not. That’s what a national TV audience saw last night. While the Hornets wore their throwback jerseys, their play resembled more of the throwback Bobcats team that struggled to score and defend in that 7 win season years ago. The game was actually competitive early, right up until […]
  • Kemba-less Hornets routed north of the border

    By Mark Buonocore on November 30, 2017
    Last night’s game in Toronto was going to be a struggle without Kemba Walker, who was missing his first game of the year due to a shoulder injury, and it appeared his teammates felt that way too. The Hornets came out flat and lifeless to start the game, allowing the Raptors to get any shot they wanted. They gave up […]
  • Week 6 Preview: Revenge Week

    By Mark Buonocore on November 20, 2017
    The Hornets enter what could be a less than pleasant Thanksgiving week at 6-9, coming off a win Saturday night versus the Clippers. This is one of those weeks where you wonder if someone in the Hornets organization made the NBA schedule committee angry at some point. While 3 of the 4 games are at home, all are against very […]
  • Bench Looks Bad in Loss to Spurs

    By Mark Buonocore on November 4, 2017
    Having won three games in a row, the Hornets headed into San Antonio to play the Spurs who were on a 4-game losing streak. Riding high, the Hornets looked to get a big early-season road win. They however didn’t account for the Spurs secret weapon, some guy named Bryn Forbes. In what seems like a repeat story, a guy who […]
  • Shorthanded Hornets Come Back & Sting Hawks

    By Mark Buonocore on October 21, 2017
    Game Summary The Hornets came into tonight’s home opener vs. the Hawks with four of their top seven players on the depth chart unavailable to play. We knew that MKG (excused absence), Nic Batum (elbow) and Michael Carter Williams (knees) wouldn’t be on the court for tonight’s game, but Cody Zeller was a late add to the list with a bone […]
  • ’17-’18 Player Forecast: Treveon Graham

    By Mark Buonocore on September 19, 2017
    Player Forecast on Treveon Graham Position: Small Forward Height: 6′ 6″ Weight: 226 pounds Reasons for Optimism: There may not be a more prototypical “Clifford” style player on the Hornets roster than Graham at this point. The young wing is exactly the kind of guy coach looks for. He is smart with the ball and typically makes the correct decision. […]
  • ’17-’18 Player Forecast: Dwight Howard

    By Mark Buonocore on September 1, 2017
    Player Forecast on Dwight Howard Position: Center Height: 6’11” Weight: 265 pounds The Hornets did something this off-season that many still cannot believe they pulled off. They traded the awful contract of Miles Plumbee away and managed to get Dwight Howard in return. It’s no secret that Dwight has been slowed by injuries and age, but let’s look and see […]
  • Where is The Love for Kemba?

    By Mark Buonocore on July 25, 2017
    As a full time Hornets fan and part time writer, I have a serious question for my fellow Buzz City residents. When will Kemba do enough to earn the respect he deserves within this fan base? The guy is loyal to a fault, plays with heart and intensity every night and literally never throws his teammates under the bus. Kemba […]
