Let’s Talk Hornets Drafting for 2016

The Charlotte Hornets are currently sitting with the 22nd pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.  The rumor mill is in full swing, throwing names in the air that the Hornets should pursue in free agency, in the draft, and/or in trades.  It all boggles my mind.  I dislike that the draft is before free agency […]

Talking Hornets Basketball: Who We Got Staying? Who Should We Draft?

The Hornets roster will most likely look different next season.  Whether that is a good thing or a bad thing is in “the eye of the beholder”.  One thing is fairly certain; we know who will be returning.  If you don’t know, here’s a quick list of who we have currently under contract: Kemba Walker […]

The Playoffs are Over! Let’s Talk Hornets Basketball

I have to say that I discovered something about myself during the playoffs.  Typically I do not write anything about the NBA once my team is out of it.  I wait for the playoffs to end, and then I pick back up discussing our “Men of Teal”.  Well, this year was no different, except for […]

Hornets Snap Playoffs Drought; Defeat Heat, 96-80

It’s been a long time coming Hornets fans. Hope you don’t mind this walk down memory lane, but I feel it’s necessary so that everyone can understand the importance of this win. In the previous 2 playoff appearances, the Charlotte Bobcats were swept away in a fairly easy fashion. In the first appearance, the team […]

Heat Beats Defenseless Hornets; Hornets Fall to 0-2 in the Series

Once again, our “Men of Teal” did not play defense.  Our offense had a much better game, even though our 3-point shooting is all but non-existent.  Any team that can maintain a field goal percentage north of 55% will not lose a game.  The Heat have been doing that very thing this entire series.  It […]

Heat Squash Hornets in Game 1 of the Playoffs

Take a good look at the picture for this article.  I count 5 spectators watching Dwayne Wade making a layup.  By spectators, I’m referring to our Hornets starters. Not a whole lot can be said about the first game of the playoffs for the Hornets.  I’m really late to the party in terms of publishing […]

Hornets Close the Regular Season with a Victory; Defeat Magic 117 – 103

Last night’s game was like many of the Hornets games this season.  It was full of highs and lows.  It was full of bright spots and dark spots.  In the end, however, the Hornets just shifted into overdrive and won their last game of the regular season. Positives from last night’s game include that none […]

Lin It to Win It; Hornets Swarm to Defeat the Spurs

I sat through that dreaded first quarter last night.  Right before tip-off I was talking on Twitter about how the Hornets couldn’t fall behind to the Spurs early because they were not a team that you catch back up to and beat.  As that dreaded quarter stormed on, there were comments from Twitter folks that […]

Hornets Playoffs Time: Coming Soon!

Feels good to have an article called “Hornets Playoff Time:Coming Soon”.  It feels even better to know that the #KeepSwarming train would really have to derail in order for the Hornets to not make the playoffs this year.  The Eastern Conference has definitely been a tight race all the way to the finish, and although […]

Hornets Beat Pelicans, 122 – 113

I want to tell you all about how the Hornets blew the Pelicans off of the court, but I can’t.  You’d think that if I told you that the Hornets scored 71 points in the first half of the game; you’d still think that I was going to go into this amazing story about how […]

Hornets Top T-Wolves; 4th Win in a Row

Man it feels good to be a Hornets fan!  I can remember a time when I was writing game recaps for the Bobcats, and we would be excited if we were able to create a win streak of 2 games.  Now, we are amidst a 4-game win streak, having knocked off the Minnesota Timberwolves in […]

Trade Deadline Has Passed – Hornets Performance is Safe but Effective

So our Charlotte Hornets have gone past another trade deadline, and for some, they are upset.  They wanted Al Jefferson out of Charlotte.  From his first season here, to this season where we haven’t seen him any, I can understand why folks have felt this way.  I wanted him gone last year.  That was not […]

Highs and Lows: The Life of a Hornets Fan

Hornets defeated the Pacers last night, which was greatly needed before the all-start break.  The Pacers, a team ahead of us in the Eastern Conference standings, was definitely a target we needed to take down in order to start building momentum for the second half of the season.  What we didn’t need was Michael Kidd-Gilchrist […]

Hornets Beat Undermanned Bulls, 108-91

What happens when the Bulls have to start Taj Gibson, Pau Gasol, Mike Dunleavy, Kirk Hinrich, and E’Twaun Moore?  Well, typically they suffer the same pains that the Hornets have endured over the past few months.  They lose games.  Last night was no different.  Pau Gasol attempted to carry the team, scoring 22 points.  Doug […]

Cousins Setting Records – Hornets Don’t Care; Defeat Kings in Double OT

So, I had no intentions of staying up until 2AM last night.  I didn’t plan on watching a double overtime NBA game.  Last night, however, the Hornets SHOULD HAVE won many fans over to root for them.  In an amazing turn of events, the short-handed Hornets (10 players available to play) went from being down […]
