  • 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 […]
  • 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 […]
