  • ’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 […]
  • Is it Time to Move on from MKG?

    By Mark Buonocore on April 20, 2017
    After the disappointing Hornets season ended I took some time to really look at this roster as a whole and individually to see what changes can be made to get this team in a position to win that elusive first round playoff series. We know that we will be very limited due to the lack of cap space, so we […]
  • Hornets Old Habits Kill Playoff Chances

    By Mark Buonocore on April 6, 2017
    The Hornets biggest game of the season was a perfect opportunity to put aside their faults and be in a position to sneak into the playoffs. Instead, we saw a team that repeated the same mistakes we have seen all year in a loss versus a Heat team who has effectively ended their hopes two seasons in a row now. This game contained […]
  • Hornets Downed By Bucks; Playoff Hopes Slipping Away

    By Mark Buonocore on March 28, 2017
    The Hornets had their backs against the wall tonight when it came to their playoff chances, and they fell flat on their faces against the Bucks in the first half, trailing 72-50 at the break. A late fourth quarter push made the game interesting, but Charlotte eventually fell at home to Milwaukee, 118-108. Jason Kidd had his guys well prepared […]
  • Hornets Bench comes up Big in Orlando

    By Mark Buonocore on March 23, 2017
    In a game the Hornets had to win, they relied on energy and scoring from their bench to keep them in the game, until closing out a bad Magic team. It was a scene we have seen so many times before, slow start on the road allowing a mediocre team to shoot way better than their season average in the […]
  • Hornets Struggles Continue in Indiana

    By Mark Buonocore on March 15, 2017
    The Hornets had a chance to keep themselves in the playoff race with a matchup versus a Pacers team on the second night of a back-to-back, and they kept things close through the first half, but fell flat coming out of the halftime break on their way to a 98-77 loss. The chances of Charlotte making the playoffs has gotten […]
  • Hornets Shine under Friday Night Lights

    By Mark Buonocore on March 11, 2017
    The margin of victory for Charlotte was the largest all season with a 121-81 win over Orlando. If for only one night, the Hornets looked like the team we thought we would be watching all year. Last night, versus a bad team in the Orlando Magic, shots were dropping from all over for the home team and the defensive intensity was […]
  • Hornets Forget Sunblock, Get Burned in Phoenix

    By Mark Buonocore on March 3, 2017
    You always hear how age and wisdom will outsmart youth and energy. Well, no one told the young Phoenix Suns that last night. Young teams that can run are always dangerous when they are at home, and last night the Suns made the Hornets look like the old dudes down at the YMCA. Before you start typing to tell me […]
