Warriors Reach Historic 20-0 on Dell Curry Night at the Hive

I wanted to believe that the Hornets would snap the Golden State Warriors’ 19-0 start to the season, but unfortunately, from the start, the deck was stacked against us.  With the announcement that Al Jefferson would be missing 2-3 weeks due to a calf strain, it would mean that yet another Hornets staple would not […]


Hornets Hold the Wizards to 6 Points in the 4th, Win 101-87

I know what I said in the last game recap. Being basically a 1-man-show, I sometimes combine 2 games into one recap. After sitting through the game tonight, I just had to park myself in front of the computer and talk a little about this game.   Again, turnovers (19) and a rough 3rd quarter […]


Home Stand Streak Extends to 3; Sixers and Kings both Fall at the Hive

The last 2 home games that the Hornets have played couldn’t have been more different, but both resulted in victories.  My sincerest apologies for not writing a recap after every game, but the fact of the matter is that when something like this is your hobby, it isn’t always easy to find the time to […]


What a Difference a Day Makes; Hornets Split New York/Brooklyn Back-to-Back

After Tuesday’s game in Madison Square Garden, there was a lot of scrutiny over Kemba Walker.  I was part of that scrutiny.  I’ll admit it up front that I can’t stand it when Kemba plays “hero ball”.  When his shot is falling, he gets tunnel vision and sometimes fails to get his teammates involved.  No […]


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 […]
