Rick Bonnell

End of quarter: Clemson 10, UNC 0

Rick Bonnell

Actually 9 yards assessed on penalty.

Rick Bonnell

Another 15-yard personal against UNC for hitting out of bounds.

Rick Bonnell

Charlotte's Elijah Hood getting plenty of work early in UNC's backfield.

Rick Bonnell

Nazair Jones with an 11-yard sack for UNC.

Rick Bonnell

Watson turns a sack into an 11-yard run. The kid has it.

Rick Bonnell

Not a bad little start for Deshaun Watson.

Rick Bonnell

74-yard Clemson touchdown. Watson to Hopper.

Rick Bonnell

With this defense, very last thing UNC can afford is 3-and-outs.

Rick Bonnell

I'm at UNC-Clemson. Expected the worst traffic-wise. Never stopped once between I-85 and Death Valley. All the fans came real early.

Rick Bonnell

Noise level at Carter-Finley must be ear-splitting right now.

Rick Bonnell

Mr. Jacoby can extend a play or two.

Rick Bonnell

Things you won't see very often: Gurley, tackled for loss.

Rick Bonnell

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

Rick Bonnell

For the first time in a long time I sampled @SportsCenter Not sure why anyone watches.

Rick Bonnell

The latest on the Jeff Taylor situation: From the team, the NBA and the players union: charlotteobserver.com/2014/09/26/520…

Rick Bonnell

The "creepy:" Rob Lowe commercials are pretty funny.

Rick Bonnell

That sounds like union expects Hornets to continue paying Taylor's salary. I'm told Hornets already planned to do so.

Rick Bonnell

Players union issues statement on Jeff Taylor situation: Says fine for him to be away from team if no "disciplinary" action taken (more)

Rick Bonnell

Just noticed Syracuse is on ABC in prime time tomorrow. Ultimate proof of Notre Dame's ability to draw ratings. @Matt Carroll

Rick Bonnell

I get why high schools felt threatened by college football going to TV on Friday nights, but nobody stayed home because of Fresno-New Mexico

Rick Bonnell

Not saying this is a bad thing, but ESPN has gotten pretty good at feeding America's 7-days-a-week football addiction.

Rick Bonnell

MKG turning 21 reminds me of Biz's answer to @eryngradwell about whether he liked Vegas. No, he said because he was too young to do anything

Rick Bonnell

I think we all forget just how young Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is. Days from his 3rd NBA camp he turned 21 today.

Rick Bonnell

In response to a couple of your questions, Jeff Taylor will be paid while NBA conducts its investigation.

Rick Bonnell

Jeff Taylor barred from playing or practicing for Hornets while NBA investigates his arrest in Michigan. charlotteobserver.com/2014/09/26/520…

Rick Bonnell

NBA: "We support the Charlotte Hornets' decision to separate Jeffery Taylor from the team during the investigation."

Rick Bonnell

Hornets say they have spoken with Taylor about this decision and he accepts it.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets announce Jeff Taylor will not be participating in any team activities following his arrest Thursday in Michigan.

Rick Bonnell

Story also says Taylor is accused of causing between $200 and $1,000 in damage to the hotel. Taylor pleaded not guilty.

Rick Bonnell

Per East Lancing newspaper, Jeff Taylor accused of assaulting his girlfriend and a hotel employee: lansingstatejournal.com/story/news/loc…

Rick Bonnell

Jeff Taylor's salary for this season is about $915,000 -- lowest among 14 Hornets as a former second-round pick.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets postpone media availability with coach Steve Clifford today in wake of Jeff Taylor's arrest.

Gerald Henderson

I put my faith in God, have a narrow focus and keep things in perspective. That's how I keep my sanity...

Gerald Henderson

#Jeter clutch last night too. Gets lots of love as he leaves I think cause he has better moments than stats. They make better impressions #2

Rick Bonnell

Here is what we know about the Jeff Taylor situation charlotteobserver.com/2014/09/25/519…

Rick Bonnell

Someone explain to Cousins, "Dudes in white jerseys not yours."

Rick Bonnell

NFL receiver catches TD, puts ball on ground, goes on with job. Radical behavior!

Rick Bonnell

Jeter deserved that and plenty more.

Rick Bonnell

This Yankees victory is why people once presumed the moon landing was fabricated. Too perfect.

Rick Bonnell

So now Stanford forward Dwight Powell, who the Hornets sent to Cavs in Brendan Haywood salary dump, being dealt in Keith Bogans deal.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets statement on Taylor arrest includes: "This is a matter that we take very seriously."

Rick Bonnell

WCNC story regarding Hornets forward Jeff Taylor: wcnc.com/story/sports/n…

Rick Bonnell

Hornets forward Jeff Taylor arrested on domestic abuse.

Rick Bonnell

Interesting stuff from my buddy, @Scott Howard-Cooper on the rookie situation heading into training camp: hangtime.blogs.nba.com/2014/09/22/rat…

Rick Bonnell

FWIW, Jason Maxiell's wife, Brandi, is one of those "Basketball Wives, LA" characters.

Rick Bonnell

Cho mentioned Jefferson, Walker, MKG and Neal as players who were particularly diligent with off-season work in Charlotte this summer.

Rick Bonnell

Cho on possible extension for Kemba Walker: "We've had some initial talks...It's just started."

Rick Bonnell

Kings waived Alonzo Gee today. His unguaranteed contract had made him the NBA's "Player to be named later" all summer.

Rick Bonnell

Three headlines from Hornets general manager Rich Cho's media availability: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

Cho says he'll be traveling with the team more this season in new distribution of responsibilities.

Rick Bonnell

Maxiell contract isn't guaranteed, so 15th roster spot is still open. But they need another big man.

Rick Bonnell

Jason Maxiell signing with Hornets tomorrow.

Rick Bonnell

Gary Neal has lost about 22 pounds in the off-season.

Rick Bonnell

Noah Vonleh (sports hernia) has started doing some on-court work. Cho says no other injuries going into camp.

Rick Bonnell

Cho says there have been some initial talks with Kemba Walker's agent about an extension. That would have to get done by end of October.

Rick Bonnell

"First time in a while we have stability in our coaching staff." -- Cho.

Rick Bonnell

"Probably (as excited) as any time in my 19 years in the NBA" -- Cho on Hornets' prospects.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets GM Rich Cho to speak with media in a few minutes. Will tweet along anything headline-worthy.

Bismack Biyombo

Hope things get better with all my friends and ex teammates in Yemen.. There is a lot of good people!! #God

Rick Bonnell

Preseason around the corner. Cho speaking with media today, Clifford tomorrow, players Monday, camp Tuesday.

Rick Bonnell

Some lunch-time reading: How I'd pencil in the NBA's 16 playoff teams before training camps begin: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

Hornets' preseason exhibition at Chicago Bulls wii be televised on NBA TV. To my knowledge no other preseason telecasts available in CLT.

Cody Zeller

I think Hunter Hayes and I would be best friends! Only because neither of us can ride roller coasters. He's too short and I'm too tall.

Rick Bonnell

Big difference in shooting percentage -- Bledsoe at 47,7%, Walker at 39.3% -- however this indicates re-signing Walker could get expensive.

Rick Bonnell

Bledsoe averaged 17.7 points and 5.5 assists last season. Walker averaged 17.7 points and 6.1 assists last season.

Rick Bonnell

Eric Bledsoe to be paid $14 million per season. I'm sure that gets Kemba Walker's attention.

Bismack Biyombo

Rick Bonnell

Um, grown-up former comic book readers: Gotham last night was dramatically better than SHIELD tonight. Surprised.

Rick Bonnell

People frequently ask me, "Why didn't they sign Blatche?" Didn't they push the balloon enough with Stephenson and Hairston?

Rick Bonnell

So Jameis Winston is giving up press conferences for academics. Sure. That's how he roils.

Rick Bonnell

Oops. Agents of SHIELD coming on (I before e except after c)

Rick Bonnell

Taylor (Achilles rupture) has to be an out-of-sight/out-of-mind ranking.

Rick Bonnell

Looking at ESPN's NBA top 500 so far: I empathize, because I do a top 100 every June. But I doubt 324 players are better than Jeff Taylor.

Rick Bonnell

You don't want a 19-year-old kid playing a major role on your NBA team unless he's Magic Johnson. Doesn't mean he was the wrong pick.

Rick Bonnell

I got a response of "Then why did they draft him?" I explained Hornets fans should be happy that finally that is no longer imperative.

Rick Bonnell

Couple of weeks ago, when Vonleh was diagnosed with a sports hernia, I mentioned he wasn't going to play a lot anyway as a rookie. (more)

Rick Bonnell

The extent that Beasley has become a Thabeet-like helper bee is illuminating.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets training camp is four days in Asheville -- next Tuesday through Friday. Not like last season when first exhibition was also there.

Rick Bonnell

Summer to fall is cool. Summer to "What do you mean I'm shivering without a coat?" Is not.

Gerald Henderson

summer over wit. time to get goin

Gerald Henderson

"The quality of your thinking determines the quality of your life" Thank you @RenadaRomain

Rick Bonnell

Hornets could use another big man, but probably not at the expense of tying up 15th roster spot with a guarantee: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

If you're curious about the free-agent center Hornets are bringing to camp, here's his website: brianqvale.com/#!about/cadp

Rick Bonnell

My point: There shouldn't be much roster suspense in the preseason. All Clifford wants from 15th man is a practice player/insurance big man.

Rick Bonnell

Fourteen of 15 Hornets roster spots already accounted for entering camp. They could use another big man with Vonleh hurt.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets add 3 free agents for training camp: Guard Justin Cobbs, forward Dallas Lauderdale and center Brian Qvale.

Rick Bonnell

Boston such a beautiful city. But just passing through on way home.
