  • 2014 Hornets Player Profile: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

    By Staff on September 26, 2014
    THE HITCH He was born to the Bobcats as a consolation prize. A circumstance of ping pong balls. In the 2012 draft there was only one player everyone wanted. The Brow, Anthony Davis. The Bobcats were within a hair’s reach, having labored through its most disastrous season since joining the association. Instead, the certified superstar went to New Orleans…that’s right…the […]
  • 2014 Hornets Player Profile: Marvin Williams

    By Staff on September 17, 2014
    THE QUESTION MARK Marvin Williams is a terrific example of someone who has never lived up to the hype of being the 2nd pick in the 2005 draft, but has still carved out a successful NBA career. Despite the criticism from the media world for not reaching his potential, Marvin became a consummate professional and emerged as a terrific teammate. […]
  • 2014 Hornets Player Profiles: Gerald Henderson

    By Staff on September 3, 2014
    THE CHANGING OF THE SHOOTING GUARD He’s only had five years in the NBA, all with the Bobcats, but it seems like Hendo has been around forever.

He’s a pull-up jumping, Duke-defending, […]
  • 2014 Hornets Player Profiles: Jannero Pargo

    By Staff on August 20, 2014
    #FREEJANNERO The Pargos are an inexplicable institution in the NBA. Along with brother Jeremy, we haven’t been without a Pargo in an NBA uniform since 2002. Jannero bounced around to five different NBA teams (and an ABA team!) in his first six years before heading overseas. When he came back to the US in 2011 he was a markedly better […]
  • 2014 Hornets Player Profiles: Cody Zeller

    By Staff on August 6, 2014
    THE QUESTION MARK Being a top five draft pick comes with a set of expectations that are sometimes warranted and sometimes unfair. In Cody’s case they are mostly unfair because his draft in 2013 was weak on talent with few, if any, franchise changing players.  Few thought that Cody would start his rookie campaign as timid and confused as he […]
  • 2014 Hornets Player Profiles: Kemba Walker

    By Staff on July 30, 2014
    THE LEADER It’s tough to measure determination. It’s difficult to quantify leadership. When Kemba left Connecticut for the NBA fresh off an NCAA championship and Most Outstanding Player award there was certainly pre-draft talk about his zeal for winning and his toughness on the court but often it was in defense of his size. Kemba knew he had a hill […]
