Walker, Stephenson, Williams and Jefferson will start for the Hornets sportando.com/en/usa/nba/136…

Rick Bonnell

I know Twitter is over-reaction theater: But the idea I picked the Hornets to win 47 games, and people thinking I underestimated them...wow.

Ira Winderman

Per ESPN, Westgate SuperBook has Heat over-under at 43 1/2, which does seem a bit low, projected two below Hornets, 6 below Wizards, Raptors

Rick Bonnell

6FWIW, My over/under on the Hornets is 47 victories.

Rick Bonnell

It's been a long time since "expectations" and " Charlotte NBA team" fit in same sentence. Hornets notes: charlotteobserver.com/2014/09/30/521…

Rick Bonnell

He never played another game for Bobcats. You know why Cavs love him? A peculiar unguaranteed salary of $10M-plus in 2015. Trade-bait.

Rick Bonnell

Your Hornets camp report: Is MKG's shot fixed? "Well, it's going in a lot more." charlotteobserver.com/2014/09/30/521…

Rick Bonnell

I don't want to call the Raiders bad, but the 28-120 Bobcats send their sympathy.

John Denton

#Hornets have signed free agent F Jason Maxiell. Max spent last season with #Magic but didn't contribute much because of off. limitations.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets make it official that they've signed Jason Maxiell. Cho said Thursday it's a non-guaranteed contract. Objective: Big-man depth

Rick Bonnell

What are the Charlotte Hornets' options now at small forward? blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Steve Popper

With Phil's playoff pick, Knicks should be better, but hard to imagine who drops: Cavs, Bulls, Heat, Hornets, Wiz, Nets, Pacers, Hawks, Raps
