The Sky Hasn't Completely Fallen in Charlotte

Jun 29 2019 09:49 PM | GeraldWallaceMVP in Previews

No matter what side of the Kemba argument you have fallen on over the past two years you are probably entering this Sunday feeling upset and extremely frustrated with the continued ineptitude shown by the Hornets front office since the team's return to Charlotte. Years of frustrating let downs after seemingly talented rosters stagnated with little success. Followed by draft picks that although never completely blow up in the franchises face were never enough to move the team out of an endless cycle of mediocrity. Through this, there has been one shining light, one pillar of hope surrounding the team and his name was Kemba Walker. The hope had always been that in Kemba Walker the Charlotte Hornets at least had one component of a winning team, they just had to find the second piece to the puzzle.

Jul 16 2018 06:25 PM | Andrew Barraclough in Headline

Do you even watch the Summer League? I don’t ever want to downplay anything the league does, honestly I don’t. The NBA is a year round phenomenon. The NFL tries to be but there is no competition outside of the August to February pre- regular and post-...

Dwight to Biyombo with a Side of Parker

Jul 08 2018 03:21 PM | Andrew Barraclough in Bismack Biyombo

The NBA league year thing is really bizarre to me. The free agency blitz that took place at midnight July 1 is some peculiar timing issue to prevent tampering or something but how could a guy sign at midnight on the button if he hasn’t talked to whate...

Jun 30 2018 06:02 PM | Andrew Barraclough in Kemba Walker

Kemba Walker is the franchise player for the Charlotte Hornets. He just is. He’s not marketable in the way Larry Johnson or Baron Davis was. I see so many Panthers players on local car dealership ads, Cam Newton was on some yogurt ads nationally, Luke...

Where do the Hornets go From Here?

Jan 28 2018 11:06 PM | GeraldWallaceMVP in Featured

Just two seasons ago the Charlotte Hornets went on a wild tear through the second half of the season to wind up tied for third place in the east.

The team was led by the rise of Kemba Walker and a revitalized Nic Batum, the future looked bright for the first time in awhile in Charlotte.

Today the Hornets sit at twelfth in the east at 20-28, with the trade deadline looming and the possibility of another disappointing season.

Feb 02 2017 03:36 PM | Bogg in Trades

I can see it, I guess - Plumlee will do a better job of doing Cody Zeller things than any of the other candidates to play center that are/were on the roster, so you don't have to switch up your play style to accomodate a backup big - you can just kind...
