One season after making the playoffs and returning to their roots, going from the Bobcats to the Hornets, Charlotte struggled mightily in the 2014-15 NBA campaign, ending up in the bottom portion of the Eastern Conference.

The Draft is Coming – Who Will Join the Swarm?

So many things dance in my head when the NBA draft comes around.  I wonder what our team needs are.  I wonder if the BPA will be a player that we need the most.  I wonder if we will trade up to get to that BPA that we need.  I wonder if we will trade […]
