  • Hornets Take Care of Business Against 76ers, Rematch Awaits Friday

    By Michael Kaskey-Blomain on March 30, 2016
    The Hornets did what they needed to do on Tuesday night in Philadelphia, and that was take care of an inferior team in the 76ers. With a crowded Eastern Conference playoff picture, every game is important for playoff positioning down the stretch, so it is important for the Hornets to win the games that they are projected to on paper. […]
  • The Hornets Are Gelling at the Right Time

    By Michael Kaskey-Blomain on March 9, 2016
    The Charlotte Hornets, led by the nationally underappreciated Kemba Walker, are gelling, and at the right time in a relatively open Eastern Conference. The first portion of the Hornets’ 2015-16 campaign was plagued by inconsistency and injury issues, as Al Jefferson and Nicolas Batum both missed double-digit games, and the team struggled to fit an excess of new players into the rotation. […]
  • Kemba Walker Continues His Career Year

    By Michael Kaskey-Blomain on February 11, 2016
    Kemba Walker won’t be participating in the All-Star game on Sunday evening, though the argument can be made that he should be. (An even bigger argument can be made that Walker should at least serve as Jimmy Butler’s injury replacement instead of Pau Gasol, but that’s another story). However, since a similar argument could be made for all those selected […]

  • Kemba Walker Building a Case for First All-Star Selection

    By Michael Kaskey-Blomain on December 30, 2015
    Over a third of the way into the 2015-16 NBA season, the Hornets sit right in the thick of the Eastern Conference playoff picture. Charlotte is just 3.5 games out of the conference’s top spot, and possesses both a top-10 offense and a top-10 defense, in terms of efficiency. While much of the team’s early season success can be credited […]
  • Should the Hornets Bring Al Jefferson off of the Bench?

    By Michael Kaskey-Blomain on December 16, 2015
    An untimely left calf strain forced the Hornets to adapt to life on the court without frontcourt fixture Al Jefferson. A violation of the league’s substance abuse policy will extend Jefferson’s stay on the sideline. In past seasons, extended absence from Jefferson would be a major cause for concern, especially on the offensive end. However, instead of stalling without their […]
  • Nicolas Batum Thriving with The Hornets

    By Michael Kaskey-Blomain on November 29, 2015
    In Portland, Nicolas Batum’s role consisted largely of playing defense, getting out in transition, and being ready to knock down open opportunities. Though he was a well-respected role-player, he was often an offensive afterthought, looked to only if Damian Lillard, LaMarcus Aldridge, and Wesley Matthews were unable to create something themselves. Batum was rarely an offensive initiator, or a beneficiary […]
