Hornets Mail Bag

Sep 08 2018 05:18 AM | Andrew Barraclough in Featured

So, I promised, quite some time ago, that I’d produce an actual mail bag. Ricky B! has produced 3 in the same amount of time. What have I done? Well, I got married. Which also means I had a bachelor party weekend, a bachelor night and had my pictur...

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.

Charlotte Hornets: 2016-2017 Season Outlook

Sep 15 2016 02:49 PM | Marcus Williams in Featured

The Charlotte Hornets enjoyed their best season since 2000 this past year with a 48-34 record. The breakout season unfortunately ended at the hands of divisional rival Miami Heat in seven games, but that shouldn’t take away from their successful season...

Blogcat's Take, 5/7

May 07 2016 09:50 PM | Blogcat in Featured

Don’t worry, I’m not going to recap Game South of Heaven 7 for you in this post. Trust me, I’d rather recap a botched nephrostomy. Instead, I want to first acknowledge and celebrate the tremendous success the Hornets had this year, and then I want to t...

Blogcat's Take, 4/30

Apr 30 2016 01:40 PM | Blogcat in Featured

I’m in a weird place emotionally compared to where I was at this time last week. Last Saturday morning the Hornets had just had gotten their testicles severed and flushed down the toilet by Miami in Games 1 and 2. Thus my subsequent article was a faile...

Blogcat's Take, 4/2

Apr 02 2016 01:45 PM | Blogcat in Featured

This week provided incredible relief for Hornets fans; I felt like I was freebasing Prilosec. Charlotte Bachman Turner Overdrove the Bucks and Sixers twice, taking care of business against teams they should be beating. One side note: I only had the Mil...

(Note: Blogcat moved this weekend! And Blogcat himself is writing this, so he’s not sure why he’s going 3rd person; he’ll stop now. Anyway, I didn’t get a chance to submit this Saturday morning before the internet at my old crib was turned off. So A) s...

Blogcat's Take, 2/20

Feb 19 2016 10:12 PM | Blogcat in Featured

I’m writing this post ahead of Friday’s Bucks-Hornets game, so please don’t feel like I’m blowing it off. On the contrary, this game carries more significance than a mosquito carries Zika. It’s our first game back without Michael Kidd-Gilchrist; it’s o...

Blogcat's Take, 2/6

Feb 06 2016 04:26 PM | Blogcat in Featured

I’m desperately trying to get last night’s disaster against Miami out of my mind, but the image of it continues to dangle in front of me like full-frontal Harvey Keitel nudity. It was painful for so many reasons, but most of all because I hate the Heat...

Blogcat's Take, 1/16

Jan 16 2016 03:02 PM | Blogcat in Featured

For some reason, I feel like dwelling on the pain of last night’s loss to the New Orleans Pelicans while it’s still farm-to-table fresh. There was so much to be frustrated about; it was a frustration-rich environment. Going in reverse order: why wasn’t...

Blogcat's Take, 1/9

Jan 09 2016 12:46 PM | Blogcat in Featured

Now that I’ve had a chance to sit for a few days on that burning hemorrhoid of a loss to the Phoenix Suns Wednesday night, I think I have a little better perspective on things. My initial knee-jerk reaction to the game was a literal knee-jerk, followed...

Blogcat's Take, 1/2

Jan 02 2016 03:13 PM | Blogcat in Featured

Despite another dreary week of Hornets basketball, ESPN.com’s Relative Percent Index still has Charlotte ranked 10th overall, while the fuzzier and typically more negative Basketball Power Index only has them two spots lower at 12th. My Personal Eyebal...

Blogcat's Take, 11/28

Nov 28 2015 05:27 PM | Blogcat in Featured

Last week I reported that the Hornets’ defense inside the paint has been something besides a nuclear holocaust, which caught everyone by surprise—me most of all. After all, the one skill Bismack Biyombo provided us last season (besides tweets like “I b...

Blogcat's Take, 11/21

Nov 21 2015 03:43 PM | Blogcat in Featured

Now that we’re a good chunk of the way into the season, it’s time to stick a thermometer up the Hornets’ rectum and take the overall temperature of the team. My gut tells me that as pleasant as it is to be above .500, there are some massive weaknesses...

The New Model For Charlotte Hornets Success

Oct 15 2015 01:58 PM | QC Thundercats in Featured

So over the years, we've talked about which team's model to follow to build up a contender. What started with the OKC model ended abruptly with the Unibrow scandal. The Pacers/Grizzlies model was admired for building up from mid round picks, except we...

Last week I summoned up my inner Johnny Cochran and tried to make a case for our starting 5. Don’t bother going back and reading it if you haven’t seen it already—God knows I won’t. The basic gist of it was, all in all, I think our starting 5 should be...

Blogcat's Take, 6/20

Jun 20 2015 10:06 AM | Blogcat in Featured

Lance Stephenson is perhaps most famous to casual NBA fans for blowing in LeBron James’s ear, but for Hornets fans, he’ll be most remembered for simply blowing. Still, it brought me no joy to hear that he’d been traded to the LA Clippers this week. In...

3 Options for Hornets Heading into the Draft at #9

Apr 28 2015 09:34 AM | Polar Hornet in Featured

Barring MJ cashing in his chip from the Anthony Davis fail, and Charlotte jumping into the top 3, I think the Hornets have 3 options at #9. 1 - Trade the #9 plus other assets to move up and select D'Angelo Russell. Of the draft eligible players, I th...

Blogcat's Take, 4/25

Apr 25 2015 10:42 AM | Blogcat in Featured

I plan for this to be my last entry until the draft, barring any idiotic front office decision. So in other words, I’ll probably write again on Tuesday. Until then, I need a break from all of this underachievement and malaise, much like America televis...

Blogcat's Take, 3/28

Mar 28 2015 01:37 PM | Blogcat in Featured

Hornets fans, I wish I had some words of encouragement for you. Actually, I wish you had some for me, because last night’s 2OT loss at Washington was an unbearably tragic, Fruitvale Station of a game that just left me ashen with grief. Here’s a small s...

Is it Over?

Mar 26 2015 09:14 AM | @JPlowright_NBA in Featured

Has the fat lady started singing? I know the Hornets will likely be in the race for the next 2-4 weeks, but in my opinion it's over. I haven't personally thought we were going to make the playoffs since November, I almost came back around, but then...

Blogcat's Take, 2/21

Feb 21 2015 10:54 AM | Blogcat in Featured

I’ve got to be honest with you; it’s been downright delightful not having to deal with the Hornets for nearly two weeks—no rage, no angst, no disappointment, no sleepless nights of agony, no hating God, no praying for death. It definitely makes me ques...
