  • 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 […]
  • Season Report Card ’13-14: Chris Douglas-Roberts

    By Spencer on May 20, 2014
    PER PER Against (Net) Chris Douglas-Roberts 13.1 10.0 (+3.1) Strengths: He burst onto the scene with Charlotte this season much like Josh McRoberts surprise emergence last season. At the point that this team realized it could very realistically be a playoff team, the need for a guy that could come in and give you offensive production immediately next to Kemba […]
  • Season Report Card ’13-14: Bismack Biyombo

    By Doug Branson on May 19, 2014
    PER PER Against (Net) Bismack Biyombo 14.8 15.3 (-0.5) Strengths: I don’t know what draws me to Bismack Biyombo. Is it his overwhelming love of the game? Or his on-court swagger despite all of the inconsistencies in said game? Whatever it is, I’m ready to admit it. My name is Doug Branson and I have an unhealthy affection for Biz-Ball. […]
  • Season Report Card ’13-14: Gerald Henderson

    By Brett on May 14, 2014
    PER PER Against (Net) Gerald Henderson 13.4 13.1 (+0.3) Strengths: After 5 seasons in the league, Gerald is who he is. A decent midrange shooter who plays solid defense on the ball, and can provide a spectacular highlight on either end of the court, using his length and leaping ability to soar for a dunk or block at the rim. […]
  • Season Report Card ’13-14: Kemba Walker

    By Michael Kaskey-Blomain on May 12, 2014
    PER PER Against (Net) Kemba Walker 17.1 16.5 (+0.6) After a solid 2012-13 campaign in which he improved in almost every area, many were looking for Kemba Walker to take the next step this season. While Walker’s game didn’t regress after his successful sophomore season, it didn’t appear to make significant strides either. Overall, his play appeared to plateau, and […]
