CHARLOTTE, NC - I was in a coffee shop in NoDa early Monday morning, sitting, staring into blank space trying to gather my thoughts. I couldn’t, in accordance with everyone else around the world. The shop was playing a song called “Love Like Ghosts” by Lord Huron. A line in the song perfectly explained my inability to...
The Charlotte Hornets are who we thought they were. And that is not a bad thing.  Was the Hornets’ start surprising? Yes. We have experienced exciting developments we did not expect. Devonte’ Graham has lit the league on fire. Malik Monk has gone through ups-and-downs this season--the highs were great, including his game-winner against the Pistons. P.J. Washington...
The Hornets saw immense potential with Caleb Martin - especially after his stellar preseason - and signed the guard to the team’s 15-man roster. The talented rookie has fully bought into the Hornets' plan of player development - the lifeblood of the organization - where he can develop and focus on the little things in Greensboro. He’s...
Terry Rozier did not want to fill the shoes of Kemba Walker. He quickly became frustrated by the constant chatter of him arriving into Charlotte to be the team’s saving grace after the departure of the franchise’s all-time leading scorer. “It’s annoying because I’m not him and I’m not looking to be him,” Rozier explained on Hornets media day back...
Dwayne Bacon has had quite a roller coaster of a season. On Hornets media day, James Borrego said he expected "Bake," along with Terry Rozier, to be the Hornets’ leading scorers for the upcoming season. JB also expressed his respect for Bacon’s play on the defensive end. He explained that he expected the third-year guard to defend the opponents’ best...
If Devonte’ Graham wasn’t in the national spotlight by December 11th, then the second-year guard’s 40-point outbreak against the Brooklyn Nets definitely gave him the attention he rightfully deserved.  Leading the way for the most improved player - with a 14.3 point per game increase from his rookie season (1st in the NBA) - Devonte’ Graham has been a silver...
Dear Hornets’ fans,  Thought I’d start off 2020 with just a quick little blurb about the Hornets heading into the new year and new decade. Despite a losing record, six-game losing streak, and Kemba departing for Boston, there is still much to look forward to. My goal as I started on the beat has been rooted in trying to get...
The holiday season is the time of year where we spend time with the ones we love. Typically, we stuff our faces with delicious food for a few weeks. NBA players typically get some time off around Christmas and take advantage of the well deserved break. The problem is adjusting shortly after a long break, where they...
Hornets’ rookie Cody Martin has far surpassed the expectations with which he entered his rookie year. His contagious energy and tenacious defense are just two areas where he has been a major contributor to this Charlotte Hornets team. He has already earned the trust of his head coach, playing in crucial situations down the stretch of important...
The Hornets entered Sunday’s game against the Indiana Pacers riding a three-game winning streak. Unfortunately, everything that could possibly go wrong went wrong for Charlotte Sunday. The team shot an abysmal 30.8 percent from the field (28-91) and 5-32 from three-point land (15.6 percent) in a 107-85 loss.  Luckily, the Hornets have an opportunity to turn the ship...
The Hornets close out their five-game homestand tonight as they face off against the Washington Wizards. The Hornets head into tonight’s game, winning just one of their four games through this current home stretch. They lost games to the Suns, Nets, and Hawks last week, beating the Warriors Wednesday. Sunday’s game against the Hawks was their ugliest loss in...
