Roy Williams is tremendous when he has his ideal team. His flaw is inability to adapt to imperfections.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Big game tonight for my Wildcats.. Good luck we got this #BBN

Rick Bonnell

Congrats to Mike Brey. ACC upgraded by adding Boeheim, Pitino and Dixon. Brey got very little attention in that add-on. He's excellent.

Rick Bonnell

Heels doing a good job of dictating tempo. But a long way to go.

Rick Bonnell

This is that sad point in the NCAA tournament when @KelliBartik can no longer say "Shockahs!"

Rick Bonnell

That Dean Smith would put it in his will that he was buying every past letterman dinner is so cool and so him.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Congratulations to Mark Price being named the new head coach at UNC Charlotte. I wish him the best of luck! http://t.co/qdf7AlVzwV

Rick Bonnell

Add Mo Williams to Hornets injuries. Sat out practice with a sore knee. Questionable for Wizards game.

Rick Bonnell

Made sure to give @Jeff Goodman credit for reporting 49ers offered Mark Price the job. Sad, tacky he didn't offer same courtesy tonight.

Rick Bonnell

Enjoyed working with @davidscott14 last couple of days on Mark Price story: charlotteobserver.com/sports/college…

Rick Bonnell

My gamer The Hornets spent way too much time focusing on the refs when the Nets were who they had to beat: charlotteobserver.com/sports/nba/cha…

Rick Bonnell

Mark Price confirms on Twitter he's taking over Charlotte 49ers program. First reported by some bald dude at around 7 a.m.

Rick Bonnell

Charlotte 49ers: You are getting a tremendous human being in @Mark25Price Honest, earnest and lives by the Golden Rule. A gentleman.

Rick Bonnell

Tonight against Nets was first time since Mar. 6 versus Raptors that Hornets led at end of first quarter. Rough always playing catch-up.

Rick Bonnell

Final: Nets 91, Hornets 88. Nets clinch tiebreaker.

Rick Bonnell

Fifth foul on Deron Williams.

Rick Bonnell

Lance Stephenson is 1-of-8 from the field.

Rick Bonnell

End of third: Nets 68, Hornets 64.

Rick Bonnell

Deron Williams' fourth foul sends Mo Williams to line for three attempts with 15 seconds left in the third.

Rick Bonnell

MKG appears to have taken a shot to the face. Has a bloody uniform that stopped play.

Rick Bonnell

Young back to Nets' locker room after collision with Gerald Henderson.

Rick Bonnell

Young up and moving with a limp.

Rick Bonnell

Thaddeus Young looks seriously hurt.

Rick Bonnell

As @Tim Bontemps notes, it's a strange NBA game when one team (Nets) doesn't take a single free throw in a half.

Rick Bonnell

Halftime: Hornets 46, Nets 42.

Rick Bonnell

Wizards have lost Bradley Beal tonight to an ankle sprain. Hornets play Wiz in Washington Friday.

Rick Bonnell

MKG makes a 17-footer, sort of a "fare thee well" to departing shot doc Mark Price.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets lead at end of first 26-23. Seems like it's been quite a while since they last led at end of first.

Rick Bonnell

Big Al with eight points and five boards. Looks like draining fluid from his knee was of significant benefit.

Rick Bonnell

Road team won each of the previous two games between Hornets and Nets this season. Both were blowouts with winner shooting very high %.

Rick Bonnell

Steve Clifford reminded his players winner of tonight's game vs. Nets clinches a tiebreaker.

Rick Bonnell

Steve Clifford said hopefully no minutes restrictions on Al Jefferson.

Rick Bonnell

I do not anticipate Mark Price finishing the season with Hornets. Too much to do in new job with 49ers.

Rick Bonnell

I'm told Al Jefferson had some fluid drained from his sore knee that offered some relief.

Rick Bonnell

Charlotte 49ers news conference for Mark Price is tomorrow at 2:30.

Rick Bonnell

Mark Price politely declined comment on the Charlotte 49ers situation.

Rick Bonnell

Mark Price at Time Warner Cable Arena for pre-game player workouts.

Rick Bonnell

Steve Clifford on Al Jefferson: "Al is not going to be 100 percent here the rest of the year. He is just not."

Rick Bonnell

Previous Steve Clifford quote was at shootaround regarding Mark Price.

Rick Bonnell

Cliff: “It’s not good for us, but that is how this profession works. If you hire good people they are going to get other opportunities.”

Rick Bonnell

I have a feeling MKG plays some power forward tonight, particularly when Nets go small.

Rick Bonnell

With everything else today, this could easily be missed: Clifford says Jefferson will be limited by sore knee rest of season.

Rick Bonnell

No Cody Zeller tonight. Al Jefferson will play vs. Nets but Steve Clifford said the knee will be an issue rest of season.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets have hired 2 translators to convert web content to Chinese language.

Rick Bonnell

Fred Whitfield said UNC-Asheville has been great preseason host -- door still open to a future return for training camp.

Rick Bonnell

Training camp will be in Charlotte rather than Asheville next fall. NBA grants Hornets an extra few days to account for China travel time

Rick Bonnell

Fred Whitfield said the plan is for Michael Jordan to accompany Hornets to China next fall.

Rick Bonnell

Charlotte 49ers fans: Mark's Twitter handle is @Mark25Price

Rick Bonnell

Hornets news conference at 10 is about China trip. No connection to Mark Price.

Rick Bonnell

For the Bucks that game defined swimming toward the bubbles.

Rick Bonnell

Heat was up 16. Bucks peck away. Miracle 3 at end.

Rick Bonnell

Find what just happened at end of Heat-Bucks. Wow.

Rick Bonnell

I wonder how much or little Mark Price would enjoy recruiting.

Rick Bonnell

The work he did fixing MKG's jump shot demonstrates Mark Price teaches the game well.

Rick Bonnell

ESPN ranks Hornets front office 25th among 30 NBA franchises: espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id…

Rick Bonnell

BTW, @laurakeeley is writing some terrific stuff in Duke's tournament run. Check it out.

Rick Bonnell

Thinking seriously about giving Quin Snyder my 3rd-place Coach award vote. Jazz so dramatically improved over the season.

Troy Daniels

#NationalPuppyDay miss my bro "Zeus".. 😞 #BlueDoberman.. Wish I still had him.. #ThrowBac... sqor.com/posts/b104c235… http://t.co/0iy4dFhEMW

Rick Bonnell

Bulls are percentage points behind Toronto for 3rd in the East. The difference between playing Wizards or Bucks 1st round seems significant.

Rick Bonnell

At this point the Hornets don't think Al Jefferson's sore knee is a significant concern.

Rick Bonnell

Rodney Hood had to leave Jazz game tonight with more stomach troubles. Was a problem at Duke and in Hornets' pre-draft workout.

Rick Bonnell

Nobody cares much, nor should they, about NIT results. But Murray State confirming they should have been in NCAA field.

Rick Bonnell

Celtics replace Hornets in 8th place. Upcoming Hornets-Nets game decides a tiebreaker. Almost a loser-goes-home matchup.

Rick Bonnell

Never made it to United Center due to weather delays. Watched last 3 quarters on TV. Mirotic was terrific.

Rick Bonnell

Not getting from LA to Chicago due to blizzard up there. Sure has been some season weather-wise.

Rick Bonnell

): Good stuff from @laurakeeley on Okafor as next big thing in NBA: newsobserver.com/sports/college…

Rick Bonnell

TSA Pre was terrific until everyone figured out how to be TSA Pre.

Gerald Henderson

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Proud to say that i got a lady that's Grindin to better herself.. @PaigeRomance

Gerald Henderson

Great win last night in Minnesota. Time to get some rest and gear up for Chicago tomorrow #playoffpush #R&R #Zzzz

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Fe' be knowing the answers but still be asking me.. Knowing what I'm going to say.. Like C'mon now. Lol

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Keeping my brother @Terrence Jones in my prayers... You're gonna get through this bro! #BBN

Rick Bonnell

Keselowski, Harvick, Busch. No longer Keselowski's worst track.

Rick Bonnell

Kevin Harvick pulls an audible. Good to be King.

Rick Bonnell

So much for fuel-mileage calculations -- caution with 16 laps left in Fontana.

Rick Bonnell

Brian Vickers out at least 3 months on blood-thinners. Acknowledged latest clotting episode career-threatening: charlotteobserver.com/sports/nascar-…

Rick Bonnell

Vickers: "I love racing more than any other activity. But it's what I do, not who I am."

Rick Bonnell

Vickers: "I've been told 1,000 times I'll never race again. I raced the last two weeks."

Rick Bonnell

Never met Brian Vickers but extremely impressed with how he's handling his situation today.

Rick Bonnell

Brian Vickers will be on blood thinners for at least three months so that effectively ends his Sprint Cup season.

Gerald Henderson

You are hardcore if you are watching ND-Butler. Bravo.

Rick Bonnell

Big fan of @bobpockrass -- all the more for his tweet about guy storming out of Chinese restaurant for lack of "American" food. Been there.

Rick Bonnell

Um, not saying Arkansas would have won, but some Basketball 101 rules were broken tonight.
