Charlotte Hornets Rookie P.J. Hairston Should Be Embarrassed Over This Epic Flop

There is a reason why athletes should stay in school. Not only could they actually learn something in the classroom, but they can learn a few things on the court; fine tune their game before going pro. Otherwise you may find yourself looking really stupid when you try to do something like flop in order to draw a foul--kind of like Charlotte Hornets rookie P.J. Hairston.This flop...

Hornets Win Streak Extends to 5; Knock of Lowly Knicks

There are 2 times that I hate writing any sort of recaps.  I don’t like writing them when we have been blown out.  That is obvious first choice because emotion drives the words to a negative place that I don’t like to go to.  You know what I’m talking about.  I’m sure you’ve been on Twitter during those blowouts and seen that Al should be traded, Lance should be traded...

Hornets Snag a Win in Boston; Kemba with 33

Team basketball wins games.  When the starting 5 can give you 76, and 3 of those starters are in double figures, good things will happen.  When your power forward is perfect from the floor and the free throw line…Cody was…good things happen.  I guess what I’m trying to say is that with the exception of a horrible start to the 4th quarter (10 turnovers in the 4th), the Hornets...

We really needed a win.   I mean, we really, REALLY needed a win.   5 losses were starting to feel like an eternity since our last win.
