Here we see just what goes on in the draft lottery calculations...sorta...

Draft Lotto Tonight; Will Lady Luck Smile on the Hornets?

Draft Lotto time again Hornets fans.  Being a Hornets-Bobcats-Hornets fan, I know all about the good times and the bad times of the NBA Draft Lottery.  Back when the Hornets got back-to-back years where we landed Charlotte Larry Johnson and Alonzo Mourning; that was a time where I had belief in the good side of […]

Boston Celtics v Charlotte Hornets

Tired Hornets Fall to Celtics, 116-104

I used to always talk about the Bobcats losing games that they shouldn’t have and winning games that they shouldn’t have.  I used to talk about how when we would play a team worse than us, we would play down to their level.  Last night, at home, with playoff implications pending, the Hornets did not […]

Charlotte Hornets v Chicago Bulls

Bulls Too Much for Hornets; Lose 98-86

Our 30 – 39 Hornets are so frustrating to watch at times.  Offensive schemes become frustrating, missed shots become frustrating, poor defense becomes frustrating, and overall, this team is just frustrating.  I love my Hornets, but I just don’t get it.  I don’t choose to celebrate from night to night as to whether or not […]

Charlotte Hornets v Minnesota Timberwolves

Hornets Come From 13 back to Defeat the T-Wolves

The Hornets snapped a 3-game losing streak by defeating the Minnesota Timberwolves, 109-98 last night.  They are going to need to get locked in to some wins if they want to continue on pace to make the playoffs again this season.  The Hornets scorers were led by Mo Williams, former T-Wolf, with 24 points.  He […]

Charlotte Hornets v Cleveland Cavaliers

Could Bismack Biyombo Become what Ben Wallace Was?

Anyone who has followed Trade Street Post for the past 4+ years will know that I have a special place in my heart for Bismack Biyombo.  I have argued his curious case since Charlotte drafted him 7th in the 2011 NBA draft.  He had not started playing organized basketball until age 16, and in that […]

Is Mo Williams What Kemba Can Become?

The other night when I was watching the Hornets playing the Magic, I started thinking about Kemba Walker and what he brings every night.  Then I started thinking about Mo Williams and what he has brought these last 5 games.  It really inspired me to start doing some research on both of these players.  It […]

Indiana Pacers v Charlotte Hornets

#LetsTalk; A Request for Lance Stephenson

Every day I ask Lance Stephenson to give me a follow on Twitter.  My hashtag on the request is simply #LetsTalk. Why am I doing this daily?  Well, persistence pays off for starters.  I can honestly say that in my pursuit of a follow from Gerald Henderson, Kemba Walker, Bismack Biyombo, Cody Zeller, and the […]

Washington Wizards v Charlotte Hornets

Hornets Hardball! Bugs win 5th Game in a Row at Home

The Hornets had to face the Washington Wizards for the 2nd time this week.  The hope for our Hornets was that they could repeat their success that they had in Washington on their own floor.  I must say that the game itself looked like a heavyweight title bout of sorts.  The referees were not very […]

Hornets Strike Gold in Denver; Zeller Continues to Grow

Charlotte completed their sweep against the Denver Nuggets on Saturday night as they won 104-86.  The 18-point victory was ONLY 18 because we were able to let Jeffery Taylor (4 points & 1 rebound in 9 minutes), Noah Vonleh (10 points, 7 rebounds, and 2 blocks in 16 minutes), and Jason Maxiell (14 points, 7 […]

Hornets Come up Short Versus the World Champion Spurs

Being at the game to write a recap is a little different than watching on TV. I’m at the game right now at the half, writing a recap for the first portion. While we kept things close in the first quarter, things began to come unraveled in the 2nd.  More than anything, the Spurs can […]

Hornets Win Streak Extends to 5; Knock of Lowly Knicks

There are 2 times that I hate writing any sort of recaps.  I don’t like writing them when we have been blown out.  That is obvious first choice because emotion drives the words to a negative place that I don’t like to go to.  You know what I’m talking about.  I’m sure you’ve been on […]

New Orleans Pelicans v Charlotte Hornets

Hornets are Streaking Again; Beat Pelicans at Home 98-94

You’re reading correctly Hornets fans.  The Hornets won their 3rd game in a row last night against the New Orleans Pelicans.  At one point in the first half, things were looking grim as the Hornets trailed the Pelicans.  That Pelican lead grew into double figures, but our beloved bugs roared back, led by Kemba Walker […]

Hornets Snag a Win in Boston; Kemba with 33

Team basketball wins games.  When the starting 5 can give you 76, and 3 of those starters are in double figures, good things will happen.  When your power forward is perfect from the floor and the free throw line…Cody was…good things happen.  I guess what I’m trying to say is that with the exception of […]
