  • ’17-’18 Player Forecast: Treveon Graham

    By Mark Buonocore on September 19, 2017
    Player Forecast on Treveon Graham Position: Small Forward Height: 6′ 6″ Weight: 226 pounds Reasons for Optimism: There may not be a more prototypical “Clifford” style player on the Hornets roster than Graham at this point. The young wing is exactly the kind of guy coach looks for. He is smart with the ball and typically makes the correct decision. […]

  • Is it Time to Move on from MKG?

    By Mark Buonocore on April 20, 2017
    After the disappointing Hornets season ended I took some time to really look at this roster as a whole and individually to see what changes can be made to get this team in a position to win that elusive first round playoff series. We know that we will be very limited due to the lack of cap space, so we […]
  • I Am Running Out of Clever Ways to Say the Hornets Lost

    By Mark Buonocore on February 13, 2017
    Lets be honest Hornets fans, tonight’s game was a perfect example of the team’s season wrapped up in one 48-minute game. I feel like every time I write a wrap up article, it starts with the same opening paragraph, and it goes a little something like this. The Hornets came out flat tonight and let a less talented team get […]
  • Hornets hold off Nets, end 7-game losing streak

    By Mark Buonocore on February 7, 2017
    A win is a win, and boy did the Hornets need this one. They end their ugly seven game losing streak by defeating the Nets 111-107 to bring their record up to 24-28 — keeping them in the playoff race in the East. However, all is not well in Buzz City, as this was not a great outing for the […]
  • Hornets let Splash Brothers get Wet.

    By Mark Buonocore on February 2, 2017
    We all knew the Hornets were gonna have to play the perfect game against the Warriors in order to have a chance to pull out a win in the second night of a road back to back. We also knew that the Warriors would have to be off a bit for the Hornets to have a shot to win. Neither […]
  • Is this the Best MKG we can Expect?

    By Mark Buonocore on January 20, 2017
    We hear it all the time in sports — the player whose impact can’t be measured by stats. Every team in every sport has the guy who gets described as the “scrappy hustle guy” with the non-stop motor. Announcers tell us all about how every coach loves them, and how fans can’t get enough of their dives and how they […]
  • Is Roy Hibbert the Biggest Reason for Frank Kaminsky’s struggles?

    By Mark Buonocore on January 10, 2017
    This season has been a rough one for Hornets’ second-year big man Frank Kaminsky. His defense has always been a work in progress, but he has really struggled to shoot the ball all year and many nights he seems like he isn’t sure where to be on the court. Now to be fair, if you follow me on Twitter or […]
  • Hornets frustrate Bulls, Send them Home with the Loss.

    By Mark Buonocore on December 23, 2016
    It was a good old Eastern Conference battle at the Hive tonight, a physical match-up of two teams with playoff aspirations. The Hornets got off to a good start, attacking inside and getting to the line. The outside shot was slow to show up, but the Hornets got out in transition and forced the Bulls to take contested shots. The […]
  • Hornets Secure Win Against Overmatched Mavs Despite Poor 3-Point Shooting

    By Duane Gregg on December 6, 2016
    The Story This was not the resounding, confidence inspiring win Hornets (12-9) fans hoped for Monday night. Yes, a road win in the NBA is always a good win but the Hornets flirted with losing to a team with the worst record in the NBA which would have been a terrible loss. In the end, Charlotte got the win they […]
  • The Money Factor Statistic – Proving The Value Of Kemba

    By Mark Buonocore on November 10, 2016
    Basketball has always been a game of numbers and although there are new methods everyday of quantifying performance on the court, I personally have always felt that something was missing. The simplest forms of statistics can sometimes be the easiest to understand, but often do not tell the entire story. Things like points per game and field-goal percentage make it […]
