HoopsHype Charlotte Hornets twitter
Surprised I have to say this again: I'm glad to hear what you think. But when people are obscene or rude I block. You would, too.
Deion Sanders is just trashing Cam Newton. My.
Talk radio starter tomorrow: If Michael Jordan owned the Panthers...(yes that's sarcasm).
Er, um, uh, it's basketball season in Charlotte. Forty home games left and the playoffs.
It's as if Newton is surrounded by undrafted linemen...oh, wait.
Louisville is 5 minutes away from saying, "Really, ACC?"
I say it again: The Panthers' best running back is, you know, not a running back.
Hornets fans stuck around through 3rd-quarter 24-point deficit. Curious to see reaction to this.
Cason chasin. Rot-roh.
Burning question: Can one of these teams gain four yards and put points on the board?
You know those legendary basketball practices where the managers take the rims off the backboard? That's Saints-Panthers right now.
Man, the starting pitching in this Saints-Panthers game are both aces...
BREAKING: Roman Harper makes tackle.
Thanks, CBS, for providing that picture (yuck).
Gotta love any play where a fat guy gets to run with the ball.
"Hopefully we'll learn from our mistakes. We don't want to dig ourselves out of a hole like that again." -- Walker on 24-point comeback.
Cho said NBA's investigation on Jeff Taylor is not complete.
Rich Cho says they're following the NBA's lead regarding the Jeff Taylor situation. He's still away from the team.
"We're just thrilled to death to retain him." -- Rich Cho.
"We just felt Kemba is a big part of the team going forward." -- Rich Cho on the extension.
"I would love to be here as long as I can. I love the city of Charlotte." -- Kemba Walker.
"Kemba embodies everything we want in a Charlotte Hornet." -- Rich Cho.
Rich Cho says he's "ecstatic" about getting deal done with Kemba.
It's official -- Kemba Walker has signed his 4-year, $48 million extension.
Every time someone on Twitter tells me I don't know anything, the picture says, "I just started to shave."
He played like a guy who would be the 22nd pick.
This isn't a knock, he might end up a great player: But nothing Jabari Parker did tonight said, "Wow, he is special."
I know I turned "shot clock" into a punch line, but the Hornets committing 3 in the first 3 minutes of OT makes the point -- laughable.
I'm guessing there are 48 million reasons for Kemba to show up there on his day off.
1 p.m. press conference tomorrow with Kemba Walker and Rich Cho. Gee, I wonder what that might be about.
To use Clifford's term "intramural substitutions" don't work in the NBA because no one plays enough to develop rhythm.
Clifford can't play all these shooting guards. So PJ sat and Hendo played just 9 minutes.
Tonight was the biggest comeback in Charlotte NBA history.
Huge night for Kemba Walker -- 26 points, six rebounds and five assists.
Lance Stephenson looks pretty ginger along the bench.
Shot clock 3...Jeez.
Shot clock 2
And Bucks shot clock.
Lotta people getting their money's worth at Time Warner Cable Arena.
Big 3 from the new $48 million man.
Stephenson takes a charge on Middleton.
Kemba 3-pointer makes it an 8-point deficit, then Bucks commit turnover.
Gerald Henderson has played nine scoreless minutes, none since halftime.
Nine-point game on a Cody Zeller dunk.
End of third: Bucks 83, Hornets 68. Bucks shooting 52%
Brandon Knight might end up with a triple-double. He's at 18 points, 11 assists and seven rebounds.
Stephenson VERY frustrated.
Maxiell coming back in -- a benched Biz, it seems.
Cody Zeller 3 fouls in 12 minutes.
Lance Stephenson makes first basket -- a drive -- after going 0-of-6.
Jared Dudley technical.
Ball isn't finding Big Al much. Might explain the 38 percent from the field.
Big Al is hot about how refs are treating him tonight.
Rough start for Lance Stephenson -- scoreless first half on 0-of-4 from the field.
Halftime: Bucks 57, Hornets 46.
Mystery call against Al Jefferson that time.
Interesting that Maxiell got the first shift behind Jefferson, not Biyombo.
Technical on Kemba.
MKG jump shot is first basket scored by a new-age Hornet.
Former team owner Robert Johnson siting at mid-court first row.
NBA spokesman Mike Bass on Jeff Taylor: "We are aware of Jeffery Taylor's plea today. The NBA's investigation of the matter is continuing."
Hornets starters (as expected): Walker, Stephenson, MKG, Williams and Jefferson.
Hornets exercise rookie-scale options on Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Cody Zeller for next season (no surprise).
"If there is s more competitive person in the world, I haven't met him." -- David Stern on Michael Jordan.
Hornets rookie Noah Vonleh inactive tonight (and obviously Jeff Taylor).
I do believe fans are alive at the Hive. http://t.co/9EmaJ8fxE9
Beware construction all around Time Warner Cable Arena. http://t.co/8JBjPU8Vno
This place will look a little different around 7 p.m. http://t.co/m2mRYTXAmd
Must be a big night. @martysmithespn in the house http://t.co/SZEv2jbhsD
Lance Stephenson playing tonight.
The construction around Time Warner Cable Arena is extensive. Plan accordingly in arriving for tonight's game.
So whatcha think about Kemba at $12 million a season? Good investment?
I can confirm ESPN report --Kemba extension 4 years, $48 million.
I'll be on WBTV from 7:30 to 8 as part of their Hornets special.
Hornets commemorative tickets promo tomorrow night. http://t.co/KIgJvg6RKu
Jordan on Steve Clifford; "I like the way he pays attention to detail."
Jordan on losing Josh McRoberts: “I told to Josh myself about how much he meant to the team and how we wanted him back."
Michael Jordan on profitability: "Are we making a substantial amount of money? No. Are we getting closer to breaking even? Yes."
