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, 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...

Jul 20 2014 06:13 AM | ziggy in Featured

I believe the days of Charlotte having zero or just one courtesy appearance on National TV are long gone. With the Hornets being a playoff team, having a very solid draft and adding Lance Stephenson who is the type of player that people will tune in t...

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...

Apr 30 2016 01:40 PM | Blogcat in Featured
