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, 2016 Free Agency

Jul 09 2016 09:05 PM | Blogcat in Headline

There are several ways to look at the Charlotte Hornets’ free agency period, and the one I choose is, “It could have been so much worse.” If you include the draft as part of the overall free agent/offseason gestalt, then “it could have been so much wor...

Blogcat's Take: 2016 Draft

Jun 25 2016 12:52 PM | Blogcat in NBA Draft

I’ll say this for Rich Cho: the Hornets GM doesn’t just zig when everyone thinks he’s going to zag, he turbo-zigs. He hyper-zigs. He zigs 88 mph in a DeLorean. My gut reaction to the decision to trade the 22nd overall pick in the draft for Marco Beline...

We can figure this out... We know that SOMETHING is going to happen by July 7th and that right now the powers that be cannot talk about it. But I think we put on our collective CSI hats we can figure out what's happening before then. To start thing...

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...

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, 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, 4/23

Apr 23 2016 11:50 AM | Blogcat in Headline

Regarding games one and two of the Hornets-Heat series, there’s probably nothing new or enlightening I can add. The last time I saw such utterly one-sided destruction, it was initiated by Cylons: I also don’t have anything consoling to offer to fell...

2016 NBA Playoff Discussion (The Other Teams)

Apr 16 2016 03:33 PM | ziggy in Headline

Let's use this thread for all non-Hornets playoff discussion: This is what I see so far. I was surprised to see Toronto go down 0-1 to the Pacers in this afternoon's first game. Looks like Derozan and Lowry were ice cold from the field (a combined 8...

Blogcat’s Take, 4/16: Playoff (!) Preview

Apr 16 2016 02:29 PM | Blogcat in Miami Heat

Whenever an adversary hangs around long enough, eventually I hit a tipping point wherein my hatred melts into grudging admiration. That happened this year with the Miami Heat on February 19th, the first game after the All-Star Break. Ten days earlier C...

Blogcat's Take, 4/9

Apr 09 2016 01:51 PM | Blogcat in Headline

Now that the Hornets have secured the 6th seed, the question is, can Charlotte get an even higher seed in the final few games? And I’d like to answer that question with a question: who gives a shit? Seriously, I can’t believe I’m writing about this tea...

Apr 08 2016 03:00 AM | buckets in NBA Draft

A recent thread was devoted to Winslow vs Frank vs Booker and I finally took a proper look at picks #9, #10, and #13. Personally, I think all 3 teams 14 lottery teams did well for themselves. Every 2015 lottery selection has played 1200+ minutes except...
