That moment when you say the Spurs won't be in the NBA Final, and all your spider sense is tingling."Danger!"

Rick Bonnell

I wouldn't exactly bet the mortgage on this, but I'm picking a Cavs-Warriors final: charlotteobserver.com/sports/nba/cha…

Rick Bonnell

Rich Cho was asked today if signing Lance Stephenson in July was a mistake. His answer? charlotteobserver.com/sports/nba/cha…

Bismack Biyombo

Interesting game #NEXTvsNEXT #Jordanbrand a lot of excitement going on!!

19.2 percent of video reviews by NBA referees this season resulted in overturned calls.

Hornets GM Rich Cho: Lance Stephenson knows he had a bad season. charlotteobserver.com/sports/nba/cha…

Gerald Henderson

Catching up on months of sleep deprivation....

Rick Bonnell

"It didn't work out the way we expected it to." -- Cho on Lance Stephenson.

Rick Bonnell

Cho said he has a constructive relationship with coach Steve Clifford and they are on the same page.

Rick Bonnell

"I wouldn't say that's out of the question." -- Cho on possibility of trading the lottery pick.

Rick Bonnell

"I do think we need to address the shooting...A lot of guys' percentages went down this year." -- Cho.

Rick Bonnell

"He knows he had a bad year." -- Rich Cho on Lance Stephenson.

Rick Bonnell

"MKG was probably our most improved player." -- Cho.

Rick Bonnell

"I think a lot with Al is about his conditioning and his weight...He's committed to dropping 20 to 25 pounds." -- Cho

Rick Bonnell

Rich Cho: "We're all disappointed in the season we had. We expected to make the playoffs."

Gerald Henderson

Another season in the books. It's a true blessing to be able to wake up healthy and do what I love… instagram.com/p/1k6WuJxLXk/

Bismack Biyombo

Good morning people! Wishing everyone a good day wherever you are.

Maurice Williams

Great 30 for 30 on Sonny Vacarro. I have a lot of respect for this man. He helped a young kid out… instagram.com/p/1kl-pcnfZk/

Maurice Williams

You couldn't even imagine what my life would be rt now if it wasn't for Sonny Vacarro. It wasn't (cont) tl.gd/njf3vc

Rick Bonnell

Scott Fowler posed some good questions about what really derailed the Hornets' season: charlotteobserver.com/sports/spt-col…

Cody Zeller

Thanks to all the @Charlotte Hornets fans for your support this year! It was an honor to wear the Hornets jersey each night and represent Buzz City!

Rick Bonnell

Cody Zeller might need arthroscopic surgery to repair a partially-torn rotator cuff: charlotteobserver.com/sports/nba/cha…

Maurice Williams

It's been real charlotte. Looking forward to the future. #gohornets instagram.com/p/1jT_mPHfdm/

Rick Bonnell

Lance Stephenson: "My 3-point % was the lowest ever in history. That's terrible." charlotteobserver.com/sports/nba/cha…

Rick Bonnell

Hornets will have a 1.7% chance of the top pick in the draft lottery and a 6.1% chance at a top-3 pick.

Rick Bonnell

Steve Clifford going on @wfnz with @Kroeger at 4:30.

Rick Bonnell

Newsy day as @Charlotte Hornets close book on season: Al Jefferson...Cody Zeller...Lance Stephenson: charlotteobserver.com/sports/nba/cha…

Rick Bonnell

NBA and players association agree on a system to test players for Human Growth Hormone starting next season.

Rick Bonnell

“I’ve got unfinished business here. That’s not even an option for me." Al Jefferson when asked if he'd opt-out of next season to be a FA.

Rick Bonnell

Al Jefferson wants to lose 25 pounds this summer.

Rick Bonnell

Al Jefferson says it's highly unlikely he'd exercise his opt out to become a free agent in July.

Rick Bonnell

Cody Zeller has a partially torn rotator cuff. Sounds like arthroscopic surgery is likely.

Rick Bonnell

"He flts what we need. He creates space on the floor." -- Clifford on P.J. Hairston's long-range shooting.

Rick Bonnell

"He's a good shooter. He's not a knock-down shooter." -- Clifford on P.J. Hairston.

Rick Bonnell

Clifford said Cody Zeller might need surgery on his right shoulder.

Rick Bonnell

Clifford said the simplest measure of MKG's value is when he didn't play they didn't win.

Rick Bonnell

"He has a contagious competitiveness about him....When he wasn't on the floor I didn't like it." -- Clifford on MKG.

Rick Bonnell

Clifford said MKG might be the Hornets' most important player.

Rick Bonnell

Clifford said he doesn't believe it's a given Al Jefferson will have more injury issues going forward. "I believe in him."

Rick Bonnell

Clifford said on an ideal team, Kemba Walker would be the Hornets' third or fourth scoring option.

Rick Bonnell

"Kemba will never average 30 points a night, but he's a winning player. You can win with him." -- Clifford.

Rick Bonnell

"A lot of Al's issues this year were physical. But I have a responsibility to make him the player he was last year." -- Clifford.

Rick Bonnell

"We never became as good a practice team this year as last year.'' -- Clifford.

Rick Bonnell

"We're not in a position to get a max-level player. Nor do we need to." -- Clifford.

Rick Bonnell

"It's not OK to not make the playoffs. But I do think it was a group that did a lot of good things." -- Clifford.

Rick Bonnell

"We're not a 33-win team. And I'm primarily responsible for that." -- Clifford.

Rick Bonnell

"We weren't as disciplined, we made too many mistakes, more nights when we weren't ready to play." -- Clifford.

Rick Bonnell

"This is a disappointing year. We took a step back." -- Steve Clifford on the Hornets' season.

Rick Bonnell

The "Be gracious when your team just missed the playoffs" interview is awkward. But Westbrook really didn't handle that well.

Rick Bonnell

The surprise Tyus Jones would turn pro is odd. He made his point he's a 1st-round pick. Based on size/athleticism, he wouldn't change much.

Rick Bonnell

Pelicans about to qualify for the playoffs. First round vs. Warriors could be the all-time restaurant-town series.

Rick Bonnell

If you have League Pass, find Atlanta-Chicago. Not sure why Hawks are so engaged, but this looks like a Game Seven.

Troy Daniels

GameDay..!!!! #Blessed..!!!! sqor.com/posts/2989c345… http://t.co/nmVwIasqIJ

Rick Bonnell

I keep hoping Twitter becomes a high-end discussion. It's sad that 90 percent of interaction is truly B.S.

Rick Bonnell

When you get that "I want to tell you about a great story idea you should consider..." I'm waiting for the first such thing.

Rick Bonnell

The new trend on my email is p.r.people offering me the opportunity to write about NBA players investing in start-ups. Um....no.

Rick Bonnell

The Marty Hurney on @espn730 these days is funny and engaging. Glad he found a second act from Panthers general manager.

Rick Bonnell

As somebody who travels a ton, I'd endorse almost everything in this story. Worth your time: charlottefive.com/two-flight-att…

Rick Bonnell

From @bball_ref Lance Stephenson's 17.1% worst from 3 in NBA history among players with at least 100 attempts: basketball-reference.com/play-index/psl…

Rick Bonnell

Nelly has owned a small percentage of the Hornets for several years and occasionally attends games at Time Warner Cable Arena.

Rick Bonnell

Nelly's tour bus was pulled over by Tennessee state troopers who discovered drugs. Attorney representing Nelly told AP he'll be exonerated.

Rick Bonnell

NBA spokesman: League aware Hornets minority owner Nelly was arrested over the weekend. NBA monitoring the situation.

Rick Bonnell

Steve Clifford said if he had a vote for MVP, it would go to Stephen Curry.

Rick Bonnell

No Dwight Howard tonight because second game of back-to-back.

Rick Bonnell

Steve Clifford said he doesn't anticipate any of the 5 players out tonight to play Wednesday in Toronto.

Troy Daniels

Through it all you gotta smile.. #Gameday #Blessed sqor.com/posts/4c42d3d9… http://t.co/psi0Yp5kpm

Rick Bonnell

When you start telling Ad Exec he's an evil person and he might not get away with this...he still might. Good TV.

Rick Bonnell

This 'Mad Men" episode is daring and terrific.

Rick Bonnell

I'm told it's it's highly unlikely P.J Hairston or Lance Stephenson will play in either of the Hornets' remaining games.

Rick Bonnell

Regardless of how this plays out, the Pacers were so clutch tonight.

Rick Bonnell

Huge win for the Pacers.

Rick Bonnell

I'm a big Godfather fan That scene where Michael hugs Fredo and subtly OK's the hit. Wow. Cold....

Rick Bonnell

Double-techs and play on seems a bit understated for what I saw in Grizzlies-Clippers, no?

Rick Bonnell

"This is the business we've chosen." What a terrific piece of movie dialogue.

Rick Bonnell

Next time someone feels compelled to buy me a present, "The Godfather" series would be really thoughtful.
