Blogcat’s Take, 2014-15 Charlotte Hornets Seaso...

Jumpin’ Jesus, it’s already basketball season again, and believe it or not, there’s actual reason to be excited! For the first time since America was Wang Chunging in between walking like Egyptians, the Hornets are brand new in Charlotte again. Let’s all admit that these mediocre Bobcats seasons have basically started running together like Stephen King novels. Sure, there’s...

Indiana Pacers Force Lance Stephenson Out of Indiana

Over the Summer Lance Stephenson signed a three-year deal worth $27 million with the Charlotte Hornets as an unrestricted free agent in July. The choice wasn’t easy for him cause his first choice was to be a Pacer again. The Pacer aggressively went after Stephenson offering him a five-year 44 million dollar deal. Why did one of the best six men in the business leave 17 million...

Lance Stephenson: Pacers gave me a deadline in free agency

The life that Lance Stephenson now leads looks a lot different than the one he had in Indiana. For one, he dresses in a locker room soaked in white, purple and teal hues, under a ceiling crafted to appear like a beehive. He lives alone in a downtown condominium where a personal chef prepares the kinds of healthy meals he once eschewed during his time in Indianapolis. And now, five...

Charlotte Hornets: Extend Kemba Walker…Now!

  Charlotte Hornets: Extend Kemba Walker…Now! By Josh Morgan: VP and Director of Content… I have a terrible memory. Way too much time watching television, playing video games and overall exposure to visual media of all sorts has warped my brain in a sense where there are times I can barely recall things that happened just the day before. So, why am I telling you this? Well there...

Lance Stephenson and Pacers could both regret his departure

When Lance Stephenson entered the NBA four years ago after the Pacers took him with the 40th pick in the 2010 draft, he was coming off one collegiate season at Cincinnati and facing serious questions as to whether he would ever realize the talent that earned him the nickname “Born Ready” while growing up in Brooklyn.

NBA Season Did Not Start Yet, But Lance Stephenson Is Already Flopping (Video)

Newly acquired Hornets shooting guard Lance Stephenson didn’t change one bit. Stephenson flopped a lot when he was playing for Indiana and he’s still horribly flopping with his new team in Charlotte. Against the Chicago Bulls in the preseason, Stephenson looked as if his ‘flopping‘ ability was in mid-season form when he overreacted after being tapped by Kirk Hinrich. Photo...

2014-15 NBA Preview: Charlotte Hornets

The Bobcats have been transmogrified into the Hornets, complete with a makeover of their arena floor into a honeycomb. After making the playoffs and picking up a well-known free agent, spirits are high, but the bar is set awfully low in the east. As one of the more bizarre teams we’ve seen, they’re an all-defense team led by Al Jefferson and Kemba Walker, a team that destroys...
