  • 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 […]
  • Hornets Weekend Wrap: Jeremy Lin, Cody Zeller lead Charlotte Hornets to preseason win over Clippers

    By Reece Helms on October 12, 2015
    Unless if you stayed up late Saturday night, or technically Sunday morning, you missed a great NBA preseason game between the Charlotte Hornets and the Los Angeles Clippers. A game in which the Hornets went on to win 106-94. The Charlotte Hornets had seven players score double digits, led by Cody Zeller and Jeremy Lin, who both scored 16 points. […]
  • ’15-’16 Hornets Player Forecast: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

    By Reece Helms on September 28, 2015
    Position: Small Forward Height: 6’7 Weight: 232 lbs Reasons for Optimism: On August 25th, the Charlotte Hornets signed Michael Kidd-Gilchrist to a 4 year, $52 million dollar extension. At first, the deal received mixed reviews. To some, the $52 million dollar price tag seemed a bit high for a player that has averaged less than 10 points per game in his career. Michael […]
  • ’15-’16 Hornets Player Forecast: Jeremy Lin

    By Reece Helms on September 19, 2015
    Position: Point Guard Height: 6’3 Weight: 200 lbs. Reasons for Optimism: Remember in 2012 when Jeremy Lin took over the NBA for a few weeks? The New York Knicks were close to releasing Lin before his temporary contract became guaranteed. Instead, then-head coach Mike D’Antoni decided to give Jeremy Lin a second chance. On February 4th, 2012 against the New Jersey Nets, Lin […]
  • ’15-’16 Hornets Player Forecast: Frank Kaminsky

    By Reece Helms on September 12, 2015
    Position: Power forward Height: 7’0 Weight: 240 lbs. With the 9th pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, the Charlotte Hornets selected Frank Kaminsky from Wisconsin. The reception the Hornets received for that selection was mostly controversial, but is that fair? No, of course it isn’t fair, but reports were that the Boston Celtics offered Charlotte a handful of 1st round picks […]
