Interesting Kobe quote from @Michael Lee story about Jordan: "He obviously was a championship-or-bust man.”

Rick Bonnell

Papers having national NBA writers a quaint notion. Terrific story by @Michael Lee is why they still should exist: washingtonpost.com/sports/wizards…

"I think one of the worst things you can do is lose (draft) picks and flexibility and then get caught in a corner." -- Cho to @theobserver

Charlotte Hornets general manager Rich Cho: You can't squander the future for a quick fix today. charlotteobserver.com/2015/01/27/547…

Rick Bonnell

Fast Times at Ridgemont High and The Replacements both on tonight. Decisions, decisions.

Rick Bonnell

Dwyane Wade has left the Heat game with more hamstring troubles. You sense Heat, Hornets and Nets will stagger to finish line this season.

Rick Bonnell

Had a chat with Cho today. Story coming later on-line. Will send out a link.

Rick Bonnell

Rich Cho and Steve Clifford told me they'll see how things go (Pargo's recovery, Neal as the backup point) before any possible roster move.

Bismack Biyombo

Never go to @Boris Diaw house__ is on a serious diet , most important thing there is nothing.. Only water and coffee!! #thisishappening

Rick Bonnell

Charlotte Hornets rookie Noah Vonleh inching closer to meaningful playing time? charlotteobserver.com/2015/01/27/547…

Rick Bonnell

I'm jumping on @ESPN730 at 1:45 to talk Hornets with Marty Hurney.

Rick Bonnell

Based on Clifford's comments, it sounds like Hornets won't immediately try to add a point guard.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets coach Steve Clifford said Jannero Pargo is still at least a week away from playing.

Rick Bonnell

We used to have an expression for Superstorm Juno in Syracuse; May.

Rick Bonnell

I mean this kindly: I got many Seth Curry questions on Twitter today. Anyone who thinks Seth would help the Hornets short-term at PG...

Rick Bonnell

ICYMI; Brian Roberts -- right or wrong -- says he's ready for this. He's been through the drill: charlotteobserver.com/2015/01/26/547…

Rick Bonnell

ICMYI: Kemba Walker will have knee surgery Wednesday. The news and the ramifications: charlotteobserver.com/2015/01/26/547…

Bismack Biyombo

Just want to Thank each and everyone for your support.. It's tough to watch games on the other side! Thanks again #newChallenge #Godwill

Rick Bonnell

I keep getting asked about Seth Curry. If the Hornets make a roster move, I'd think it would be for a more experienced point guard.

Rick Bonnell

Jannero Pargo (sore back) has participated some in practice. Steve Clifford said Pargo will up his load this week, then be re-evaluated.

Rick Bonnell

One of what I'm sure will be numerous guards who'll be connected to the Hornets: A.J. Price.

Rick Bonnell

If Hornets add another point guard, they would have to cut another player unless the league gave them a 16th roster-spot exception.

Rick Bonnell

The Hornets have had a single game this season when all 15 players were available to be activated. This Kemba surgery is the latest hit.

Rick Bonnell

Brian Roberts says he's up to a long fill-in for Kemba Walker. He did just that for Jrue Holiday last season: charlotteobserver.com/2015/01/26/547…

Rick Bonnell

Hornets coach Steve Clifford said this morning the team could add another point guard if Kemba Walker is out long.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets point guard Brian Roberts suddenly becomes the starter at his position. He knows the drill: charlotteobserver.com/2015/01/26/547…

Rick Bonnell

Kemba Walker to have knee surgery Wednesday. The news and the ramifications: charlotteobserver.com/2015/01/26/547…

Rick Bonnell

Kemba Walker having knee surgery Wednesday in New York.

Rick Bonnell

I'll be on @ESPN730 at 5:20 talking Hornets. So I'll be discussing a slew of injuries with a guy nicknamed "Dark Cloud." @BobbyRosinski

Rick Bonnell

“He’s been by far our best player...It would be a significant hit.” -- Steve Clifford on effect if Kemba Walker has a lengthy injury.

Rick Bonnell

Nets and Knicks home games tonight postponed due to severe winter weather.

Rick Bonnell

Marvin Williams' concussion could result in rookie Noah Vonleh getting some playing time.

Rick Bonnell

Clifford says point guard Jannero Pargo (sore lower back) may be available to play later this week.

Rick Bonnell

Kemba Walker is in New York today getting a second opinion on his left knee, Steve Clifford said.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets injury update on Bismack Biyombo and Marvin Williams: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

Nothing new on Kemba Walker's left knee.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets injuries: Biz out at least 10 days with a knee bruise. Marvin Williams has a concussion and a broken nose.

Rick Bonnell

The Hornets have some serious injury issues going forward: charlotteobserver.com/2015/01/25/547…

Rick Bonnell

Woj says Hornets and Nets talking again, this time about Joe Johnson. There is only one recurring theme, though: Move Lance.

Gerald Henderson

First to 1,000, wins....Congratulations #CoachK on a special accomplishment! #GoDuke instagram.com/p/yTCH9WxLa4/

Gerald Henderson

1,000 wins is pretty special. Proud to have been a small part of that amazing accomplishment. Go Duke #CoachK #Coach1K

Rick Bonnell

Gastonia's Hassan Whiteside with a triple-double for Heat.

Rick Bonnell

Marvin Williams has a concussion; team evaluating knee injuries for Kemba Walker and Bismack Biyombo: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

BTW, it's official that Marvin Williams has a concussion.

Rick Bonnell

FoxSports' Brett Jensen first spoke to Cho about Kemba's knee and if he might need surgery.

Rick Bonnell

I spoke to Hornets general manager Rich Cho briefly about Kemba Walker's knee. He said they're evaluating, should know something next week.

Rick Bonnell

Nets lose by 35 in Utah. Hornets pass them in the standings for tonight.

Rick Bonnell

Final: Hornets 76, Knicks 71. Knicks were good house-guests, committing two turnovers at the end.

Rick Bonnell

Big Al having a rough night.

Rick Bonnell

Lou Amundson (who was doing a decent job guarding Big Al in the post) fouls out.

Rick Bonnell

Lance Stephenson has been good at hawking the passing lanes tonight. But he's now at four fouls.

Rick Bonnell

Gerald Henderson in for Hairston.

Rick Bonnell

Big Al next dead ball.

Rick Bonnell

MKG layup from Lance Stephenson gives the Hornets a 63-56 lead with just more than nine minutes left.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets going really small with Jason Maxiell at center and MKG at power forward.

Rick Bonnell

End of third: Hornets 57, Knicks 54

Rick Bonnell

Big-time offensive rebound by Cody Zeller sets up a Lance Stephenson drive.

Rick Bonnell

Hairston and Zeller in for Hornets.

Rick Bonnell

First Hornets lead on a Maxiell jumper from Lance Stephenson.

Rick Bonnell

I don't see Biz on the bench. Must be in trainer's room, knee packed in ice. Get loose, Jason Maxiell.

Rick Bonnell

Big Al starts the second half. Bismack Biyombo has a knee contusion and is questionable to return.

Rick Bonnell

Marvin Williams possible concussion. He went down hard and got up very slowly.

Rick Bonnell

Boy, is @the_josh_rosen blushing right now. Happy birthday.

Rick Bonnell

Reason Hornets in this game: They took 21 free throws in the first half to the Knicks' six.

Rick Bonnell

Halftime: Hornets trail Knicks 37-36 after shooting 10-of-39 from the field.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets big men now down to Jefferson, Zeller, Maxiell and Vonleh. Guessing you could see some MKG at power forward 2nd half.

Rick Bonnell

Marvin Williams just now getting up from the floor. Headed back to the locker room.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets are 5-of-30 from the field. Starting to hear boos.

Rick Bonnell

Second foul on Lance Stephenson. He's played 9 minutes.

Rick Bonnell

Stephenson stays in the game after being checked out by the athletic trainer.

Rick Bonnell

Lance Stephenson looked like he may have hurt himself again, but he's in the huddle between quarters.

Rick Bonnell

Al Jefferson next dead ball.

Rick Bonnell

Cody Zeller hits from 19 feet as Hornets finally score 4:40 into this game.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets miss their first nine shots.

Rick Bonnell

Great stuff from @JeffDuncan on the Benson family mess in New Orleans. nola.com/saints/index.s…

Rick Bonnell

Knicks starters in absence of Anthony and Calderon: Tim Hardaway Jr., Langston Galloway, Lou Amundson, Lance Thomas & Jason Smith.

Rick Bonnell

Charlotte Hornets' Kemba Walker, New York Knicks' Carmelo Anthony both out tonight: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

Jose Calderon also out for the Knicks.

Rick Bonnell

Carmelo Anthony out tonight for Knicks. They're avoiding him playing a back-to-back so soon after being out.

Rick Bonnell

Al Jefferson won't start, but figure on him playing plenty tonight. Someone has to score in Kemba's absence.

Rick Bonnell

Bismack Biyombo will start again at center.

Rick Bonnell

Brian Roberts starts at the point. Gary Neal and Lance Stephenson as fill-ins at the point.

Rick Bonnell

It sounds unlikely that Carmelo Anthony plays for the Knicks.

Rick Bonnell

Kemba is out tonight. Not playing vs. Knicks gives him 4 days between games to rest his sore knee.

Rick Bonnell

There is talk around the arena that Kemba Walker might miss tonight's game with more knee soreness. Steve Clifford pre-game media shortly.

Bismack Biyombo

Any day above ground is a blessing.. Thanks be to God!! Good morning #Godwill

Rick Bonnell

Three takeaways from a gruesome night for the Charlotte Hornets: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Bismack Biyombo

Tough night! Learn and move one #Godwill tomorrow will be a better day.. Good night people!!

Rick Bonnell

“We just weren’t here tonight and that is my responsibility." -- Hornets coach Steve Clifford.

Rick Bonnell

End of third: Cavs 103, Hornets 63. So the 10-game streak of holding opponents under 100 will end decisively.

Rick Bonnell

Biz back in. So far no points or rebounds in 12 minutes. He has two fouls.

Rick Bonnell

Three fouls in nine minutes for Lance Stephenson, who comes out of the game.

Rick Bonnell

Big Al is 5-of-6 for 10 points in eight minutes. Also four rebounds.

Rick Bonnell

Cavs' lead at 38-13. Cleveland is shooting 14-of-24 from the field.

Rick Bonnell

End of first: Cavs 33, Hornets 13. So I'm thinking that streak of 10 games holding opponents under 100 points is toast.

Rick Bonnell

Iman Shumpert makes his debut with the Cavs. Big ovation when he's introduced.

Rick Bonnell

Cavs pulling away to a 22-9 lead. Have made eight of first 12 shots.

Rick Bonnell

Zeller's second foul. If Cody is in foul trouble, it makes it harder for Steve Clifford to use Marvin Williams on LeBron James later.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets trying some zone.
