Charlotte Hornets: Gary Neal is lighting it up

The Charlotte Hornets have been pretty awful so far this season.  Charlotte currently sits at 4-11 and hosts 11-3 Portland on Wednesday. The offensive performances and defensive performances have been spotty all season.  They are simply finding ways to lose games instead of finding ways to win them.

Big Trouble in Charlotte?

As I sit here an just before tip-off of the Hornets and Clippers, I can’t help but feel like there are more questions about this team then before the season started.

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...

23-Point Lead Wasn’t Enough; Hornets Fall to the Magic

105-100 Let that sink in Hornets fans.  Had I written this last night, it would be filled with a ton of expletives, followed by screaming to have every player and coach’s head on a spike.  I’ve calmed down now.  Sitting on Twitter while watching the game may be bad for my health.  I know it makes me be an unhappy fan, and the biggest result is that I start feeding off of...
