Hornets, Stephenson off to sluggish 4-15 start

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) The Charlotte Hornets brought in Lance Stephenson figuring he'd help take the franchise to the next level. So far the only step the Hornets have taken is backward.

Toward the end of the third quarter Wednesday night in the Hornets-Bulls game, Kemba Walker handled the ball on the perimeter, crossed over and broke Bulls forward Nikola Mirotic's ankles.

Woman Tries to Reach for the Charlotte Hornets Mascot's 'Stinger'

For the Charlotte Hornets mascot life has to be tough. The team has improved when you consider the product that has been on the court the last couple of seasons, but it still has a ways to go before it can be called 'good.' So--as a result--people will sometimes become bored at the game and become easily distracted when he walks.It's all good of course--until they get touchy feely...

10 Losses in a Row for the Hornets; What the…

I’m going to start off by apologizing to anyone I argued with on Twitter tonight. I’m angry, but the truth of the matter is that sometimes the truth hurts. I love this team and it takes a lot of love to defend them like family. I grew up a Hornets fan, celebrated the return of an NBA team to North Carolina when the Bobcats came to us, and I’m still defending the team like I’d...

Too Much Heat in Miami; Hornets Drop 5th Straight

If you take the game as a whole, it was one of the better games the Hornets have played this season.  A solid effort was put forth by every player on the team, and we just came up short at the end.   5 players in double figures is a good thing, but not when you still lose.  Al Jefferson had 22 points and 12 rebounds, Lance Stephenson had 17 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists (he...
