Walker's improved jump shot key to Hornets recent success

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A month ago, something dramatically changed with Charlotte Hornets point guard Kemba Walker. Seemingly out of nowhere, and for the first time in his career, he found a consistent jump shot. For most fans, a statement like that may seem outrageous. They know that he's been one of the team leaders in scoring since he was drafted ninth overall in the 2011 NBA draft...

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...

Gerald Henderson finishes strong with right-handed slam against Spurs

The Charlotte Hornets have won their last five games and they are off to a strong start against the San Antonio Spurs. Strong as in Gerald Henderson’s dunk right on Tim Duncan: I don’t think Gerald Henderson’s dad (who played for the Celtics) ever had ups like that. Well done, Hendo. *** Gerald Henderson pic courtesy of Getty Images.

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...

Walker, Hornets keep rolling, Knicks keep reeling, drop 15th straight

  Kemba Walker added to the best stretch of his career with 28 more points, and the streaky Charlotte Hornets extended the New York Knicks' losing streak to 15 games with a 110-82 rout on Saturday. Charlotte won its fifth in a row and did it so easily that Walker played only three quarters. That was still enough for him to surpass 25 points for the fifth straight time. Bismack Biyombo...

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...

Hornets Snag a Victory in Orlando; Kemba Walker with 30

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. Now granted, beating a team that was 13-23 on the season is not the greatest benchmark for how well we played, but it was a victory, and we se saw some things that were positive. Let me share them with you.   Kemba was on his game last night....

Cody Zeller tames ‘The Manimal’ on a huge poster dunk

Usually it’s Kenneth Faried who puts opposing players on a poster, but this time he’s on the receiving end of a monster facial courtesy of Hornets forward Cody Zeller. Zeller was way out from the paint and had Faried one on one en route to the rim. Considering Zeller had the step on Faried, Zeller put “The Manimal” on a poster. The dunk was so sick, the Hornets bench was...

Report: No teams interested in trading for Lance Stephenson
