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...

The 2016 NBA Free Agency Thread

May 01 2016 03:47 PM | ziggy in Players

Off the bat, there are 2 names I'd like to discuss. Both Centers 1 - Hassan Whiteside I know, I know... he's a bit of a knucklehead and he is going to command big bucks, but close your eyes and think about him and MKG working together defensively... P...

Blogcat's Take, 2/27

Feb 27 2016 03:17 PM | Blogcat in Kemba Walker

By the time Kemba Walker’s career is over, I’m going to owe him a debt of gratitude the size of a student loan. Last night in Indiana was just the latest in a long line of tiny miracles in which Kemba’s ability to manipulate opponents reached Johnnie C...

Blogcat's Take, 2/13

Feb 13 2016 12:40 PM | Blogcat in Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

This has got to be the most tragic week in Charlotte sports since…geez, are we in Rae Carruth territory here? Even losing the Anthony Davis draft pick never hurt me this badly. First, on the biggest stage, the Panthers can suddenly no longer hold on to...

Blogcat's Take, 1/30

Jan 29 2016 06:07 PM | Blogcat in Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Full disclosure: I tend to write this column on a Saturday morning. It works out well for me, because on the off-chance that I ever make any friends, they definitely won’t want to hang out at that time. So there’s usually a nice window of opportunity f...

Is Al Jefferson done as a Charlotte Hornet?

Dec 06 2015 07:37 PM | buckets in Al Jefferson

I was putting together this trade timeline and started to wonder if it’s possible Al has played his last game as a Hornet. If he comes back after 3 weeks it’ll be at least 2 more before he’s in game shape (for Al) and if the team is rolling that’s a hu...

Blogcat's Take, 12/5

Dec 05 2015 02:46 PM | Blogcat in Al Jefferson

Just when I thought I was done talking about Al Jefferson, he’s gone and strained his calf. So now I’ve got to talk about him again, because somehow this is estimated to be a 2-3 week injury, which seems excessive. I mean, if he’d gone and strained an...

Blogcat's Take, 11/14

Nov 14 2015 02:26 PM | Blogcat in Kemba Walker

As I calmly* and soberly** reflect on the Hornets’ 4-5 start to the season, the question I’m asking myself is, how close am I to pressing the panic button on Kemba Walker and Al Jefferson? Am I hovering over it as if I’m a contestant on Jeopardy and th...

How good can Cody Zeller become?

Oct 15 2015 01:28 PM | Ashevillelin in Cody Zeller

I know it's just preseason, but Cody is leading the league in TS% at 93.1 (and has an effective FG% above 100!). He's perfect from beyond the three-point line, and is leading the team's non-exclusive point guards in assist %. He's clearly got some nice...

Blogcat's Charlotte Hornets Season Preview...

Oct 10 2015 10:21 AM | Blogcat in Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Sorry I haven’t written in a while, but I’ve been too busy pulling my kicked-in testicles out of my groin. The news that Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is lost for the season with a torn labrum made me physically ill; it’s tragic on more levels than the Republ...

Blogcat's Take, 7/11

Jul 11 2015 12:59 PM | Blogcat in Players

Folks, I’ll tell you what: between Jeremy Lin coming and Bismack Biyombo going, I’m about as happy as a leech getting pried out of Wil Wheaton’s crotch. Let’s start with the Jeremy Lin signing—and I mean literally the signing itself. When I heard Lin...

Jeremy Lin signs with the Charlotte Hornets

Jul 08 2015 08:31 PM | adam187 in Players

Jeremy Lin via Facebook Going into my first true free agency as an NBA player this off-season, the one thing that mattered to me the most was finding a team that would be a good fit for me. I wanted to be on a team where I would be able to play freely...

Nic Batum is now a Charlotte Hornet

Jun 24 2015 06:21 PM | InProblematique in Gerald Henderson

I don't know if "treadmill" is the right way to describe it. I think this makes us better immediately, but will probably hurt us in the long run. Vonleh was going to be at least a three year project before he was what we saw when we drafted him. Batum...

The Chrlotte Hornets trade for Jeremy Lamb

Jun 25 2015 12:01 PM | Shocker in Players

No matter what happens Cho killed it with these 2 trades: Give up Stephenson, Vonleh, Hendo, meaningless 2nd Get back: Batum (26), Lamb (23) and Hawes (27)? Robbery. Oh and I am definitely one who is extremely glad it was Vonleh and NOT Zeller. C...

Lance Stephenson traded to the Clippers

Jun 15 2015 08:25 PM | iowabobcat in Lance Stephenson

I'm not as bummed out about this trade as most people here. We need to add a SG that can shoot the 3 this offseason, hopefully Booker, and with Henderson, Stephenson, Hairston, and Daniels on the roster we needed to get rid of somebody. I've wanted Haw...

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...

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, 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...

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...

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...

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...
