Season Review

  • ’14-’15 Season Report Card: Lance Stephenson

    By Greg Pietras on April 30, 2015
    PER: 8.8 PER Against (Net): 13.3 (-4.5)   ~~Spoiler Warning~~: This will not be an upbeat review. Lance was bad. But before we bury his awful season, let’s let him off the hook a little: Lance wasn’t really to blame for how this year went. Would Stephenson being any good have helped? Sure, yes, of course. But his sudden, unexpected implosion is just one bullet point on […]
  • ’14-15 Season Report Card: Noah Vonleh

    By Spencer Percy on April 28, 2015
    PER: 13.20 PER Against (Net): 12.90 (+.30)   When the sports hernia injury plagued his rookie campaign before it really even began most should have understood that this was going to be a slow development year for Vonleh, at the very most. The injury would go onto keep Vonleh out for the entirety of training camp, and even if he was healthy […]
  • ’14-15 Season Report Card: Mo Williams

    By Michael Kaskey-Blomain on April 25, 2015
    PER: 15.48 PER Against (Net): 15.00 (+.48)   The move to acquire Mo Williams halfway through the 2014-15 season was one made out of necessity. The Hornets lost their starting point guard and go-to scorer, Kemba Walker, right in the midst of a tight Eastern Conference playoff push, and without a legitimate full-time fill-in on the roster things looked grim. Enter: Mo […]
  • ’14-15 Season Report Card: Kemba Walker

    By Spencer Percy on April 23, 2015
    PER: 17.66 PER Against (Net): 15.76 (+1.9)   For an undersized scoring guard you can argue that Kemba Walker has ended up being a really nice NBA player in his four-year career, but there is something glaring missing. Ah, the ability to be a winning point-guard in this league. Some of that falls on Kemba and some falls on the front-office for […]
  • Cho’s Foresight, Fortune Have Hornets Set for Success

    By Staff on July 27, 2014
      Rich Cho’s savvy moves have the Hornets moving in the right direction. 
  • Season Report Card ’13-14: Al Jefferson

    By Dakota Schmidt on May 28, 2014
      PER PER Against (Net) Al Jefferson 24.5 17.4 (+7.1) While there’s usually an influx of uncertainty that surrounds a high-priced free agent signing in the NBA, that level of skepticism was escalated when the Bobcats signed veteran Al Jefferson to a three-year deal. Despite the fact that the move marked a potential change in the overall landscape of the […]
  • Season Report Card ’13-14: Cody Zeller

    By Doug Branson on May 26, 2014
    C- PER PER Against (Net) Cody Zeller 14.1 14.8 (-0.7) Strengths: The grade is more for the improvement and persistence he showed throughout a season that saw him tentative at first but strong to finish. Zeller stayed aggressive all season despite the ups and downs of an NBA rookie campaign. He carved out a role on an NBA playoff team as […]
  • Season Report Card ’13-14: Gary Neal

    By Greg Pietras on May 23, 2014
    PER PER Against (Net) Luke Ridnour 14.9 18.1 (-3.2) Strengths: In his time with the Bobcats, Gary Neal lived up to his billing — he was a very good spark off the bench, bringing excellent three-point shooting and versatile scoring. He joined the team just as it was starting to peak after the All-Star break, and helped push them to greater […]
  • Season Report Card ’13-14: Luke Ridnour

    By Brett on May 22, 2014
    PER PER Against (Net) Luke Ridnour 9.0 22.7 (-13.7) Strengths: Luke Ridnour joined the Bobcats as part of the mid-season trade with Milwaukee, which sent Jeff Adrien and Ramon Sessions out, and returned Luke and Gary Neal. The idea was to add some long-range shooting to the Bobcats, to help spread the court around Al Jefferson’s post ups and Kemba’s drives. […]
  • Season Report Card ’13-14: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

    By Greg Pietras on May 21, 2014
    PER PER Against (Net) Michael Kidd-Gilchrist 12.8 11.1 (1.7) Writing a season recap for Kidd-Gilchrist almost feels redundant. As a second-year player taken No. 2 in a loaded draft, his development was under the microscope all year. Every game was a referendum: He shut down Carmelo! He got lit up by Carmelo! LeBron scored 61 points! He dropped 22 on […]
