HORNETS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Is Charlotte prepared for a new star to be Born? Ready or not here one comes!

Michael Johnson There is a fire that rages inside of new Charlotte Hornets shooting guard Lance Born Ready Stephenson. A fire that will cause him to flourish in Charlotte and be one of the best players in the NBA. There are few players in the league with his skills and assets. A 6’5, 230 pound two guard with the ball handling and passing of a point guard, the rebounding tenacity...

Charlotte Hornets: 4 reason why Kemba Walker will be an All-Star

The Charlotte Hornets have not experienced much success in the past decade.  With ten years of existence as the Bobcats and only two playoff appearances, fans in Charlotte are praying for a winner.  Heck, even with ten years to choose from, those darn Bobcats only managed to produce one All-Star player:  Gerald Wallace in 2009-2010.  I predict that the Hornets will have two or...

Hornets' Vonleh has sports-hernia surgery, likely out 6-8 weeks

Vonleh apparently got injured during a recent workout, just weeks before the Hornets open training camp for the 2014-15 season. A first-round pick with the re-branded Charlotte club (9th overall), Vonleh was slated to compete for an opening-night starting slot at the 4 spot -- prior to his injury. He still could return for the Hornets' home opener on Oct. 29 against the Milwaukee...

Charlotte Hornets: Predicting Each Starter’s Stat Line

Thanks to one signature, this summer quickly got spicy for the Charlotte Hornets. When Lance Stephenson finished crossing his surname’s single “t”, the Hornets instantly jumped from a fringe playoff team to a postseason lock, and the addition of the flashy wing made the draft-night add-ons of Noah Vonleh and P.J. Hairston seem significantly more substantial. The team lost...

It’s Time for Show “Biz” in Charlotte

Getty Michael Johnson If you asked ten Charlotte Hornets fans how they feel about backup center Bismack Biyombo you would probably receive a 50/50 split of both positive and negative responses.

Charlotte Hornets: Ideal Season Within Reach

From seven, to 21, to 43, the Charlotte Bobcats’ win total from year-to-year has effectively doubled or tripled over the past three seasons. In the 82-game season, it’s impossible for that trend to continue, but the number of tallies in the column marked “W” could keep improving next year, assuming the planets align correctly for […] Charlotte Hornets: Ideal Season Within...

Why Steve Clifford is a perfect fit for the Charlotte Hornets

Coming off another horrible season that saw the franchise finish with a 21-61 record, the Bobcats front office needed to make the correct choice when hiring a new coach in the summer of 2013.  The list of potential candidates ranged from former Portland Trailblazers and Seattle Supersonics (BRING BACK THE SONICS!) coach Nate McMillan to former Los Angeles Clippers and Phoenix Suns...

Charlotte Hornets: 5 Best Building Blocks

All sights are set on the future for the Charlotte Hornets. The Bobcats were stuck in the NBA’s cellar for four seasons, and after a 7-59 season which included a 23-game losing streak, Charlotte basketball was the league’s biggest punchline for two years straight. Now, though, after securing one franchise-altering talent last summer in Al Jefferson and […] Charlotte Hornets...

Charlotte Hornets: Initial thoughts about the 2014-2015 schedule

Mid-August is a pretty boring period on the NBA’s calendar.  There are no monster dunks, ankle-breaking crossovers, or last second buzzer beaters this time of year.  Even the four-letter-network-who-shall-not-be-named has some difficulty coming up with NBA news once the free agency period slows down.  But have no fear die-hard NBA nerds fans; the NBA released its schedule for...
