Merging New Shooters With The Rest Of The Hive

If the three-point shot is both the present and future of the NBA, the last season's performance beyond the arc by the Charlotte Hornets must have meant they were stuck in the past. The Hornets finished a disappointing 14-15 campaign ranked dead last in three-point field goal percentage (31.8) while also finishing just 24th in attempts per game. You don't have to point to much more...

What number should Mo Williams wear?

The NBA’s July moratorium period ends today, Thursday, July 9. This means that NBA players and teams can officially sign contracts and create binding agreements where previously there had only been handshakes and wink-wink deals. For the most part, this doesn’t affect too much for fans. Except in rare cases like Wednesday’s DeAndre Jordan madness between the Mavericks and...

On Mo Williams, regrets and homecomings

Mo Williams was my first regret. The Cleveland Cavaliers were in the midst of one of the worst single seasons in NBA history and had just allowed Chase Budinger to drop 30 points on them as the Houston Rockets provided Cleveland with its 28th loss in its last 30 games. It was the night of the league’s trade deadline and Williams in street clothes nursing an ankle injury. As I stood...

Making Sense of the Hornets’ Offseason

Much was expected from the newly branded Charlotte Hornets this past season. After a somewhat surprising run to the playoffs in the previous season, in addition to the momentum gained from an offseason that involved signing Lance Stephenson, another strong playoff run was in their foreseeable future. At least to most it seemed. However, right from the start of the season it was a...

Mo Williams signs 2-year deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers

LeBron James proved that you can come home against all sorts of strange odds. That makes the latest bit of Cavaliers news almost pedestrian, but it sure is a lot of fun. Mo Williams appears to be following in James’ footsteps, just one season later as he’s reportedly spurning several other contenders to sign a two-year deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers worth $4.3 million. Who...

Cody Zeller completely froze the first time he talked to Michael Jordan

Like most of the young players in today's NBA, Cody Zeller grew up idolizing Michael Jordan. Zeller was fortunate enough to be drafted by Jordan's Hornets (then still the Bobcats), which meant that he'd have the chance to meet and talk with his childhood hero. When the opportunity rose, however, he completely blew it. In an article he penned for the Players' Tribune, Zeller talked...
