With the amount of negative press Josh Smith receives, one could easily think that featuring Smith on a team is the only surefire way to lose games. This notion is critically unfair. It’s no secret that Smith had a horribly disappointing year in the 2013-14 campaign, and playing the small forward position for an oversized Detroit frontcourt was […]

The Hornets have sucked, and sucked a lot this year. In my latest piece, I break down exactly why. Check it out!
I’ve gotta say, the 27-point blowout losses are significantly more discouraging than the double-overtime wins are encouraging. Unfortunately for fans of the club, that sums up the Charlotte Hornets’ season thus far: it’s been a huge disappointment.  At 4-7, Charlotte has dramatically underperformed in its first 11 games, and honestly, that record really doesn’t paint the picture […]

You are the #Hornets  GM in this create your own adventure story! Check it out!
Every sports site has its “wannabe general managers”, who never hesitate to post their (often ridiculous) trade ideas in each article’s comment section. But there’s more to being a GM than approving or vetoing unbalanced, unrealistic, 2k-style trades. Real NBA GMs face all kinds of issues every day, ones that are much more complex than they […]

Where the Hornets can get better:

Naturally, the final goal for the Charlotte Hornets is an NBA championship. Until this season, the Charlotte franchise had been the league’s biggest punchline after ending the 2011-12 lockout season with the single-worst winning […]

do the Cs have a shot at the playoffs next season?
The Eastern Conference has always been the kid brother of the West. It’s never as big or as strong, and its big bro is consistently pounding on it, season after season. Now though, it appears all that is changing. The East is no longer the NBA’s punch line, and it looks as if it’s ready to […]

bad move, Celtics.
So, it turns out Avery Bradley is going to be a part of the Boston Celtics’ future. Thats right, everyone: the Cs’ first move of the offseason is officially in the books, and barring a trade, Avery Bradley will be a Celtic for another 4 seasons. Can confirm that the #Celtics & RFA Avery Bradley have agreed to […]
