Will Al Jefferson opt out?

Apr 09 2015 09:37 AM | ziggy in Al Jefferson

It seems like the obvious answer is NO, He would not pass up that final year of guaranteed money... But lets look at it this way. Al is not getting ANY younger. He is on the wrong side of 30 and he has tons of mileage on him because he came straight...

Blogcat's Take, 3/14

Mar 14 2015 12:56 PM | Blogcat in Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Haters, be warned: last night’s Hornets victory over the Chicago Bulls provides the excuse I need to write my annual lover letter to Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Longtime readers will know that my outpourings of MKG devotion get borderline homoerotic; such...

Blogcat's Take, 3/7

Mar 07 2015 02:25 PM | Blogcat in Noah Vonleh

Despite the Hornets’ 3-game winning streak and rise to 7th place in the Eastern Conference playoff standings, I’m not quite ready to let my emotional guard down just yet. For one reason, all three wins came against teams—the Lakers, Nets, and Raptors—w...

Blogcat's Take, 2/14

Feb 14 2015 12:59 PM | Blogcat in Adam Morrison

Trying to find the good in the Hornets’ final three games before the All-Star Break is like trying to find the good in Darth Vader: you can sense it, but you probably can’t prove it without an intense electroshock session. Not helping is the fact that...

The Decline of Lance Stephenson

Feb 12 2015 12:24 PM | raginranger in Lance Stephenson

I think it's been discussed at length here all season, but the Lance signing has been a huge disappointment for us, and a horrible career move for him. He has looked nothing like his Pacer self near the end of last season. Where did his dribble-drive...

Blogcat's Take 1/10

Jan 10 2015 10:39 AM | Blogcat in Kemba Walker

Believe it or not, I was only mildly delighted by the Hornets’ win over Toronto on Thursday. Don’t get me wrong, when Kemba Walker took that kill shot from 22 feet that looked wide right all the way until it splashed home, and the roaring Raptor crowd...

What have we learned in these last 5 games?

Jan 08 2015 10:12 PM | ziggy in Al Jefferson

I know that 5 games is a very small sample size. But the LOOK and performance of the team has been so much different over these past 5 games that it must mean SOMETHING, Right? Does it mean we are better without Al? Are we better without Al AND Lance...

Thoughts on the Charlotte Hornets Youth

Jan 07 2015 12:09 AM | QC Thundercats in Cody Zeller

Well, the blessing in disguise (or if you're BrotherDave, the blessing) with Al being out is that not only does Cliff not have his crutch to rely on, but our young guys can't use him as a crutch either. They are now forced to step up because we need t...

Blogcat's Take, 12/21

Dec 21 2014 03:15 PM | Blogcat in Bismack Biyombo

Alright, so we’ve won two in a row, but let’s not go crazy. Let’s not even go mildly quirky. The 76ers had so many comical turnovers that spectators in the first 5 rows of their arena should be wearing smocks like they’re at a Gallagher show. Meanwhile...

Blogcat's Take, 11/15

Nov 15 2014 03:21 PM | Blogcat in Cody Zeller

Sorry for getting so wonky right off the bat, but I’d like to apply the following in-depth technical analysis to last night’s Hornets victory over the Suns: “Whoo!” In addition, the data set strongly suggests the following: “F--- yeah!” It’s no secret...

Blogcat's Take, 11/8 - Lance Stephenson: Sp...

Nov 08 2014 02:38 PM | Blogcat in Lance Stephenson

Lance Stephenson’s spectacularacuolous bank shot buzzer-beater last night not only created enough delirious squealing in my household to warrant a call from animal control, but it also dramatically changed the planned theme of today’s article. Given th...

Blogcat's Take, 11/1

Nov 01 2014 05:17 PM | Blogcat in Kemba Walker

(note: I wrote this just before Saturday's tip-off against Memphis. If the Hornets get crushed and eaten by Z-Bo & Co., sue me for unlawful and aggravated joy) After I got done simultaneously wetting and soiling my pants, I went back and recorded...

Is Kemba Walker the BEST guard in Charlotte pro...

Oct 31 2014 07:24 PM | InProblematique in Kemba Walker

So, I was thinking today, as I re-watched his two big shots again for the millionth time, that Kemba, even if he never scores another point as a Hornet, will go down in history as one of the best to every play in Charlotte. Not statistically by any mea...

P.J. Hairston's role on the 2014 Charlotte...

Oct 03 2014 11:08 AM | InProblematique in PJ Hairston

So, I'm curious what you guys think about P.J. Hairston this year. Naturally, he would have gotten more minutes if we hadn't signed Lance, so a lot of his minutes are going to be eaten by other wings. But Hairston was billed as one of the most NBA-read...

MKG: Is this his make or break season?

Sep 11 2014 09:41 PM | InProblematique in Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

With a new shot, a skill set that makes any fan in the NBA's mouths water, and lockdown defense at the hardest position in the NBA, there's no doubt MKG is a player who will spend a long time being a valuable player in the NBA. But as MKG begins to ro...

Should the Charlotte Hornets pick up Hasheem Th...

Aug 26 2014 09:15 PM | InProblematique in Players

So, OKC traded Hasheem Thabeet to Philly today, and Philly immediately waived him. Hasheem Thabeet is obviously one of the biggest busts of all time, but Cliff has said multiple times this offseason that he'd like to sign another center to back-up Al a...
