  • 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.

  • Should the Hornets Bring Al Jefferson off of the Bench?

    Some aspects of the Hornets’ offensive approach this season are familiar. Al Jefferson can still be found down on the block, doing work – although he is noticeably lighter – and Kemba Walker is still the team’s motor, controlling the tempo and getting buckets. However, the 2015-16 campaign has also proven different, as the Hornets’ offense doesn’t have to live […]
