8 Is Not Great; Hornets Skid Continues

How many more times can I say it? It was another close loss for the Hornets as they fell to the Warriors 106-101. I can’t wait to write a recap where we can discuss a win. I mean over and over I point out where we were behind in categories, and I blame that for […]


The Teal and Purple Lose 7th straight

We can’t just look at stats on this loss. Well, you can, but it doesn’t make the loss appear to be a cut and dry one. The Hornets had a better overall field goal percentage than the Trailblazers (43.6% vs. 42.4%). They also out-assisted the Blazers 29-21. Those are key numbers that can decide victories […]

Yep, this currently illustrates our defense.  It's the old "watch the opposition score" move.

Hornets Streak Stretches to 6; Lose to Clippers 113 – 92

So, I sound like a broken record.  Team chemistry isn’t there.  Players don’t know their role with the team.  The injury bug bit us early in the season.  We need some rest and time to practice.  Does that cover it all?  I really can’t remember anymore.  Those are all valid excuses as to why we […]


Big Trouble in Charlotte?

As I sit here an just before the tip-off of the Hornets and Clippers, I can’t help but feel like there are more questions about this team than before the season started. The turtle slow start that we have witnessed has already caused me to start questioning many of the decisions thus far. We knew […]


Too Much Heat in Miami; Hornets Drop 5th Straight

If you take the game as a whole, it was one of the better games the Hornets have played this season.  A solid effort was put forth by every player on the team, and we just came up short at the end.   5 players in double figures is a good thing, but not when you […]


23-Point Lead Wasn’t Enough; Hornets Fall to the Magic

105-100 Let that sink in Hornets fans.  Had I written this last night, it would be filled with a ton of expletives, followed by screaming to have every player and coach’s head on a spike.  I’ve calmed down now.  Sitting on Twitter while watching the game may be bad for my health.  I know it […]

Hornets Fall to 4-8 with Loss to the Pacers

A game that ended with a final score of 88-86 makes it sound like the game was quite the barn-burner.  Well, I guess in theory it was a barn-burner in the sense that many Hornets fans are ready to burn their barns over the inconsistency and losses.  I am on Twitter for most every broadcast […]


Hornets Take First Home Court Beat Down; Fall to Mavericks 107-80

Hmm…bright spots from last night’s game…  Well, Noah Vonleh got some playing time, and in that time he netted 6 points, 2 rebounds, a foul and a technical.  Another bright spot?  Gerald Henderson fans will be happy to know that he was the top scorer last night with 18 points, 5 rebounds, and 3 assists. […]


Replacing McBob: Charlotte’s Glue Crew

Forget his ground-shaking elbow to Lebron’s throat and move on from the bottle rocket passes that lit up the floor night-in and night-out. Gone is his sultry brown mane that fluttered as he galloped down the court, as well as his awe-inspiring beard that hangs from his face like moss on a weathered southern oak. […]


Hornets Destroyed by Warriors; 112-87

So what happens when a team with 5 new players and starters with injuries face a full strength, west coast powerhouse? Nothing good. The Charlotte Hornets were without Michael Kidd-Gilchrist as the faced the Warriors last night. They also had their starting power forward, Marvin Williams, with a sore Achilles tendon. Did I mention that […]


Hornets Snag First Road Victory; 103-95 Over the Suns

In recapping our Charlotte Hornets, I really believed that I would have been writing about this first road win of the season about 2 games ago, when we played the slumping Lakers.  Then, with the way the first half went in Portland, I just knew that our first road win was going to come against […]


Hornets Intensity Fades in the 4th; Fall to Blazers

We just can’t quite close out games.  In a game where the Hornets were sporting a 23-point lead, and I was seriously considering going to bed at a normal time, I would have never imagined that we would have lost.  We did though.  102-100 was the final.  I’m glad I stayed up to watch it […]


Week 2 in review!

Week 2 record 2-2 Overall record 3-4 The Hornets had quite an up and down week this week. It started with a road loss to Anthony Davis and the Pelicans. The team traveled home to face the Heat. This was the first game that we started to see what this team could be. After getting […]

Much like Kemba, the whole team looks to be scrambling to get it together at times.

Hornets Struggle in Lakerland; Lose 107 – 92

Any of our return readers have probably heard me reference at some point that Charlotte sometimes have Ice Age quarters.  Back when they were notoriously known as the Bobcats, it would happen more often than not.  Well, though the name has changed to the Hornets, and the teal and purple are finally home, we keep having […]
