Hornets, Powered by Nic and Al, Top Trailblazers

Tonight was one of those nights that reminded us of how much fun it is to watch the Charlotte Hornets this season. In the arena, we honored Gerald Henderson, said hi to Noah Vonleh, remembered the tragedy in France and still manhandled our opponents to come away with a victory. Leading the way was our […]


Zeller Stuns Knicks!

What a wild ride of a game. Our depth really paid off in this game and our big name trade showed us what he was made of on this Wednesday in Charlotte. Nicolas Batum finished with 24 points and 5 rebounds. Kemba Walker shot an abysmal 2 for 11 and was basically benched late in […]


Hornets Grab 2nd Road Win of the Year Versus Timberwolves

Of course the story lines will state that the Hornets beat the Timberwolves, who were without Ricky Rubio and Andrew Wiggins.  You know how it goes; Hornets beat a team that was shorthanded.  Blah, Blah Blah… Last I checked those wins still count, regardless of who did or did or didn’t play.  Here’s the thing […]

I LOVE THIS PICTURE!  I was never a Felton Fan...

Hornets Start their Road Trip with a Win Over the Mavericks

People say that the NBA is changing. It has become a faster paced game where the 3-point shot is key. They say that the old days of banging in the paint for 2 points is just a thing of the past. Does anyone want to tell Big Al Jefferson that? Last night, he erupted with […]

Hornets CRUSH Bulls For Their First Win Of The Season!

It’s good to be back on Trade Street Post! I know a lot of you may not remember me but, I slogged through the blogging trenches in the formative years of this blog. A lot of good times were had and many more are to come! On to the game. The new broadcast crew is […]


Careless Hornets Turn the Game over to the Hawks

Wondering about the article’s picture?  I like to use that one when a game is lost because of turnovers.  Sick humor?  Maybe.  Did this make you laugh?  I hope so. A team cannot commit more turnovers than the other team and expect to win a game. This is especially true when 25+ points come off […]


New Look Hornets Fall to Heat

The 2015-16 NBA season tipped off for the Charlotte Hornets last night in Miami, FL, versus the Heat.  While the preseason team went 7-1, the regular season will always prove to be a much quicker and more intense game, with longer minutes for the starters.  Unfortunately, with 7 new players, MKG out for 6 months, […]


Kemba and J-Lin; The 1-2 Punch Through 4 Preseason Games

If you recall, I ran an article before the season began, discussing how Kemba and Lin could be the 1-2 punch that the Hornets needed at the point guard spot.  I compared numbers and illustrated that there should be very little drop off, if any, when Lin came in for Kemba.  Well, that was using […]


What Will It Take?

I followed the Hornets from when their existence in Charlotte began until they departed to New Orleans.  Once Charlotte got a team again, my following also started back.  I’ve followed the Bobcats/Hornets for the past decade.  In that time I’ve seen some great basketball, and some basketball that I wish I could un-see.  So I […]


2015 Charlotte Hornets Media Day

So the 2015 Charlotte Hornets Media Day is in the books.  This makes the 4th appearance Trade Street Post has made to one in it’s almost 5 year existence.  It’s definitely one of the biggest events that our site can attend because it gives us a chance to actually sit and talk with the players […]


Charlotte Hornets Media Day 2015 – Talking with Jeremy Lin

The 2015 Charlotte Hornets Media Day is in the books folks. There were a ton of news media there as well as “the blog sites”, as we were affectionately referred to during the day. I live tweeted pictures from Time Warner Cable Arena during the entire event yesterday. I went until my phone battery gave […]

With Most Talent In Years, Hornets Looking To Bounce Back In 2015-16 Campaign

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. It was especially disappointing, considering the promise they exhibited in the year prior. Gone is last year’s big free-agent […]


Kemba Walker and Jeremy Lamb; Batman and Robin Together Again

So what’s with the Batman and Robin title?  There was an article on Bleacher Report that referred to the 2 in college as such because it seemed like Lamb was always there to help Walker when he was struggling to carry the team.  Bobcats/Hornets fans understand Kemba and the Batman comparison.  Many times, Kemba has […]
