Charlotte Hornets Rumors
Q: Who on the team would you say is your best friend? Frank Kaminsky: Spencer [Hawes]. His vets passed down certain values to him, and he’s passed down those values to me. The biggest thing that I have learned so far is just to forget. There are so many games and so many things that can happen, so you can’t let things drag on throughout the season, or else you can bury yourself and bad things can happen.
Q: I saw on Twitter that you refer to Kemba Walker as ‘Dad.’ Do you call him that to his face? Frank Kaminsky: Yeah, I always call him “Dad.” One day in the locker room, someone joked, “You have to call Kemba ‘Dad’ from now on.” So I did. He says that I’m his favorite white guy now, so that’s a positive and I take great pride in that.
Charlotte Hornets small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist suffered a torn labrum in his right shoulder Wednesday in a road victory over the Indiana Pacers. The Hornets provided no timetable for his recovery, but it appears unlikely he’ll play again this season. This is the second time in five months Kidd-Gilchrist has suffered that particular injury. He had surgery in October on the shoulder after injuring himself in a preseason exhibition in Orlando.
