Hornets fanatics say "Nothing would ever be this embarrassing!" Um, it's 92-59 in a playoff game.

Rick Bonnell

Turn on ESPN and you can watch final seconds of Virginia Squires-St. Louis Spirits playoff game.

Rick Bonnell

Headed into @wfnz to talk Hornets and NBA playoffs with @Kroeger

Rick Bonnell

Watched KC-White Sox fight: I said "That isn't a fight, this s is 50 guys play-acting like "Guys and Dolls."

Rick Bonnell

FWIW: I suspect Fox's decision not to renew Steve Martin is short-sighted. Hornets fans trust and value him.

Rick Bonnell

Monty Williams says he told his team to foul up 3 in regulation. No one did. If that's literally what happened, some players should be cut.

Rick Bonnell

That was an amazing comeback.

Rick Bonnell

The look on Dell's face says it all.

Rick Bonnell

Two OTs for a night game. My sympathy to @KC Johnson and @Charles F. Gardner on deadline.

Bismack Biyombo

There is no such a thing as coincidence!! #PayAttention

Steve Martin going back to his radio roots with the Hornets: nba.com/hornets/steve-…

Cody Zeller

Posting a shirtless selfie just because I can get away with saying and doing just about anything right now! http://t.co/gTgpgwZ0u0

Maurice Williams

Up, bout to hit Chapel with the kids before school. Jr asks and I mistakenly said yes. Kids don't forget nothing

Rick Bonnell

Tim Duncan played old-man basketball when he was 20 at Wake. That's not a bad thing. Schooling the kiddies tonight.

Rick Bonnell

No big deal Zeller needs 3 months of rehab. Is a big deal Hornets need him to become a 3-point threat, and most of off-season is gone.

Rick Bonnell

A week ago Zeller said he was told this would be a minor procedure that would keep him out 4-6 weeks. Clearly more serious.

Rick Bonnell

Cody Zeller out 3 months with shoulder surgery: charlotteobserver.com/sports/nba/cha…

Rick Bonnell

Matt Barnes channeling both Hanson brothers tonight. #slapshot

Rick Bonnell

I don't wanna say Rea Road construction is slow, but think it started last time Cleveland Browns were good.

Rick Bonnell

There is nothing about Mike Conley that would get him on SportsCenter best plays, but he is such a winner.

Gerald Henderson

haven't played w Steph. gotta get a match twitter.com/run_dmski/stat…

Rick Bonnell

Nets are a lot better than your typical No. 8 seed in the East. But that difference is enough for good games, not an upset.

Rick Bonnell

Good finish coming up in Nets-Hawks on NBATV

Rick Bonnell

Memphis fits playoff-style half-court basketball. You don't hold Portland to 39 points in a half by coincidence.

Gerald Henderson

Usually don't do selfies but gotta tip my hat to myself. First day back on the golf course and won… instagram.com/p/1y58XxRLSe/

Rick Bonnell

Charlotte @Charlotte Hornets forward Cody Zeller will miss 3 months following right shoulder surgery: charlotteobserver.com/sports/nba/cha…

Rick Bonnell

Hornets say Zeller out 3 months, considerably longer than what Zeller indicated last week.

Rick Bonnell

Zeller said last week if surgery was necessary, recovery would take 4-6 weeks.

Rick Bonnell

Per @Charlotte Hornets Cody Zeller had successful right shoulder surgery today. Zeller had a partially torn rotator cuff.

Rick Bonnell

Greg Hardy's first game back vs. Panthers. Conspiracy theorists rejoice.

Rick Bonnell

The Hawks selling for less than $1 billion suggests the Clippers price might have been an outlier.

Rick Bonnell

Per Woj, Billy Donovan very much in play for the OKC opening.

Troy Daniels

Grill Master..!!!!! sqor.com/posts/52f04bbc… http://t.co/Cmcj2yjiJo

Rick Bonnell

FWIW: Toronto-Washington is dramatically more interesting NBA ball. I get LeBron and Boston get ratings. But that's not best game by close.

Rick Bonnell

My Panthers schedule analysis: They play 16 this season...#asexpected

Rick Bonnell

Don't know @CoachRiv2 but love that she's spoofing Panthers-Cowboys before the big show. And, hey, she's a basketball coach, so she's cool.

Rick Bonnell

Isn't this analogous? Everyone cares who and when Panthers play but it's not the Oscars.

Rick Bonnell

He points out that while everyone cares about weather, all that really means is, "Will it rain?" not Bill Nye, Science Guy (more)

Rick Bonnell

Passing thought on baited-breath NFL schedule release: A friend in TV news laughs at money spent on Doppler weather tools (more)

Rick Bonnell

Greg Hardy vs. Panthers in Dallas on Thanksgiving Day. Who says NFL has no sense of humor.

Rick Bonnell

The Charlotte @Charlotte Hornets are not bringing back Scott Lauer as radio play-by-play announcer next season: charlotteobserver.com/sports/nba/cha…

Rick Bonnell

Really happy for @LRubertinoWBTV one of my favorite people in Charlotte: charlotteobserver.com/entertainment/…

Rick Bonnell

Updated Scott Lauer story with quotes from Lauer: charlotteobserver.com/sports/nba/cha…

Rick Bonnell

The Charlotte @Charlotte Hornets have dropped Scott Lauer as their radio play-by-play announcer: charlotteobserver.com/sports/nba/cha…

Rick Bonnell

The Charlotte @Charlotte Hornets have dropped Scott Lauer as their radio play-by-play announcer. Story to follow.

Rick Bonnell

Hawks' Mike Budenholzer NBA coach of the year. Steve Kerr 2nd, Jason Kidd 3rd. My vote was Bud, Kerr, Brad Stevens (who finished 4th).

Gerald Henderson

I've learned a lot from this dude over the years. Still learning... #MJMondays instagram.com/p/1s_E0HxLf6/

Rick Bonnell

Doc Rivers has a lot of juice. You know what that allows him to do? Have Lawrence Frank to his left and Woodie to his right. Not threatened.

Rick Bonnell

Know I've said this before: Kenny and Charles are brilliant. I don't get what Shaq adds to the smartest studio show on network TV.

Rick Bonnell

If NBA did a "Most Undervalued Player" rather than a "Most Improved Player," I'd vote Mike Conley every year.

Rick Bonnell

Everyone who loves the NBA knew this would be the best game of the weekend. And it is.

Rick Bonnell

A fan berated me today for leaving Green off my DPOY ballot. OK, cool. But that Jordan block kinda makes my point on a 3RD PLACE VOTE.

Rick Bonnell

Tony Parker is still a really good player. But he went from MVP candidate to not in All-NBA discussion very quickly. Still HOF.

Rick Bonnell

Did Chris Paul go to Duke? He learned that flop somewhere along the way.

Rick Bonnell

Larry Brown says most misleading thing in playoffs is home team's margin of victory in Game 1. But Trail Blazers looked overwhelmed.

Cody Zeller

Est. heights of the exit row passengers on my flight: 5'3, 5'3, 5'5, 5'9, 6'0, and 6'1 Additional notes: I'm 7'0 tall Enjoy your leg room!

Rick Bonnell

In what world is starting Clippers-Spurs at 10:30 on Sunday a good choice?

Rick Bonnell

Al Horford has has some terrible injury luck. Hopefully this isn't more of the same.

Gerald Henderson

Trying to get dinner but I guess it's tornadoing outside?!?!

Cody Zeller

Good luck to @Tyler Zeller in the playoffs! Hes had a great year and always rises to the occasion in big games like this! #ProudLittleBrother

Bismack Biyombo

Wishing everyone a wonderful Sunday with friends and family! #thankful

Maurice Williams

Up. About to get my day started. Mason bday party and football game, long day. #whatwedoforkids

Rick Bonnell

Don't know hockey, but sounds like the 2011-12 Charlotte Bobcats should form a support group for the 2014-15 Buffalo Sabers

Rick Bonnell

Irony: The hardest part for me was third-place coach. I voted Stevens, but I thought what Quin Snyder did Nov-to-April was head-turning.

Rick Bonnell

Enjoyed your feedback tonight on my awards ballot. Most of the chatter was about MVP, which was understandable (more)...

Rick Bonnell

The @Charlotte Hornets have real problems to solve. But I'm guessing if I told you in September they'd lose 164 player-games, you'd go "Wow!"

Rick Bonnell

It's cool for people to tell me they disagree with my awards ballot on Twitter. But y'all realize this isn't Jeopardy. No wrong answers.

Rick Bonnell

I voted Stephen Curry, narrowly, over James Harden for MVP. My complete NBA awards ballot: charlotteobserver.com/sports/nba/cha…

Rick Bonnell

The @Charlotte Hornets pursuit of shooting in the summer of 2014 didn't go so well: charlotteobserver.com/sports/nba/cha…

Rick Bonnell

You think Chandler Parsons is a little geeked up to play Rockets in the playoffs?

Rick Bonnell

Derrick Rose sure looked "back" tonight.

Rick Bonnell

Neat story from @josephperson about a former Charlottean with some path to the NFL: charlotteobserver.com/sports/nfl/car…

Sunday column on Saturday: My votes on all the NBA awards: charlotteobserver.com/sports/nba/cha…

Rick Bonnell

Wizards ball. Good reversal.

Rick Bonnell

Paul Pierce went 10th in 1998 draft. Bob Bass had him atop Hornets' board, but Hornets didn't pick until 21 (Ricky Davis).

Rick Bonnell

If the Wizards lead at the half on the road with Bradley Beal shooting 1-of-9, they are very fortunate.

Rick Bonnell

Good move by Wizards playing Paul Pierce some at power forward today.

Rick Bonnell

Seriously amped-up crowd in Air Canada Centre for Raptors-Wizards.

Gerald Henderson

I'ma be sick at 12:30 straight up

Rick Bonnell

Had a long overdue night off. Went on Netflix and watched several episodes of Daredevill. Figured it was good .It was terrific.

Rick Bonnell

Tom Talk was incomplete without the fictitious radio callers. Glad @tomsorensen reunited with Will from Rock Hill. charlotteobserver.com/sports/spt-col…
