Charlotte Hornets – Kemba Walker Trade Rumors Highlight Small-Market Problems and Franchise Mistakes

Posted on 19 Jan, 2018, by in NBA

With news of the Charlotte Hornets putting Kemba Walker and pretty much everyone else on the team on the trading block, it’s tempting to try and see where it went wrong for a franchise that was in pretty good position two years ago to establish itself as a minor contender in the Eastern conference.

NBA Rumors: Charlotte Hornets, Steve Clifford Not Signing Stephen Curry Anytime Soon

Posted on 31 Aug, 2016, by in NBA

The premise: Steve Clifford has done wonders on the defensive side of the ball with the Charlotte Hornets over the years, that he’s one of the more underrated coaches in the NBA, and might be part of a package that convinces non-other than Stephen Curry to leave the Golden State Warriors and join the Hornets.

Charlotte Hornets, Kemba Walker & Seeing Jeremy Lin Go

Posted on 5 Aug, 2016, by in NBA

The Charlotte Hornets made some big changes this offseason, not necessarily changes they were hoping to make. Kemba Walker remains the team’s go to guy and biggest star, but he knows quite well that letting Jeremy Lin leave through free agency might be costly in the long run. More

Charlotte Hornets Season Preview: Kemba Walker, Nicolas Batum & Counting on Very Unreliable Players

Posted on 4 Aug, 2016, by in NBA

After the best regular season since the rebirth of NBA basketball in Charlotte, the Charlotte Hornets enter the 2016-2017 season with high expectations, relying on Kemba Walker to remain their offensive anchor, on Steve Clifford to improve as an offensive head coach, and maybe more than anything hoping that Nicolas Batum and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist stay healthy.

Jeremy Lin Not Staying With the Charlotte Hornets, Although Stranger Things Have Happened

Posted on 3 May, 2016, by in NBA

While Jeremy Lin said a few things that makes it seem like he and the Charlotte Hornets are a match made in heaven, I think free agency and other, more suitable teams have more to offer him. However, if (and it’s a HUGE if) some conditions are met, maybe he’ll stick around for who knows how much longer. More

Charlotte Hornets Failure, Jeremy Lin Finale (???), Steve Clifford Embarrassment & Kemba Walker Predictability

Posted on 2 May, 2016, by in NBA

From being one win away from pretty much historic qualification to an embarrassing game 7 exit. Steve Clifford orchestrated an embarrassing finish to an otherwise good season for the Charlotte Hornets, ignoring the obvious choice, Jeremy Lin, and sinking down with guns barely firing, giving Kemba Walker too much freedom when he’s at his worst. The result? The Miami Heat moving on to the next round, winning 106-73. More

Charlotte Hornets, Miami Heat, Jeremy Lin, Kemba Walker and More About THE Game 7

Posted on 1 May, 2016, by in NBA

The Charlotte Hornets have a game 7 showdown with the Miami Heat. Kemba Walker can’t do this alone, although the Heat would love him to try. Jeremy Lin, good or bad ankle, needs to be the guy from games 3-4-5. Steve Clifford needs to be on top of everything. All the known clichés. Dwyane Wade and his group might be formidable, but they’re far from unbeatable, even at this point. More

Jeremy Lin Injured, Kemba Walker Scoring Not Enough, Charlotte Hornets in Trouble

Posted on 30 Apr, 2016, by in NBA

Tweaking his ankle in the previous game made Jeremy Lin ineffective against the Miami Heat in game 6 and might be the thing that keeps the Charlotte Hornets from winning the series following their 97-90 loss, tying the series at 3-3. More

Jeremy Lin Does Everything, Courtney Lee Plays Hero, Charlotte Hornets Take Over

Posted on 28 Apr, 2016, by in NBA

After losing the first two games , the Charlotte Hornets storm back and take control with the first road win in their series with the Miami Heat. Courtney Lee provided the big play in the end once again, Kemba Walker mostly missed shots (again…) and Jeremy Lin had a more difficult time to get points, but made up for it with everything else. More

Heat Will Focus on Jeremy Lin, Kemba Walker Should Capitalize, Hornets Have Nicolas Batum Decision

Posted on 27 Apr, 2016, by in NBA

The longer a series gets, the more difficult it is to surprise your opponent. The Charlotte Hornets have already shown their strongest hand: Jeremy Lin. Now it’s time to focus on what worked and throw away things that didn’t, like Kemba Walker doing a little bit too much of his own thing. The Miami Heat know what’s making them “bleed”, and besides their defensive issues, they need Dwyane Wade to get his s*** back together. More
