Right now. But there is a replay at 1:00am tonight.

Bogues, Zo, Larry, Curry. My favorite Hornets team all time.! Getting me pumped up for 2014

The real question is, who would win in a fight? Xavier McDaniel or Larry Johnson? I would pay to see that.

And in just 4 years we were able to parlay a LJ and Zo front court into a Divac and Anthony Mason front court.

WTF.

Dell Curry had a look like he moonlighted as a singer in a Boyz 2 Men cover band.

Watching Zo, LJ, McHale, and Parrish battle makes me mourn the death of the skilled post player. All of these guys would be the best post players in today's NBA.

I was convinced that Kendall Gill was going to be a mega superstar all star.

Always forget that Game 1 was Reggie Lewis' last game before his death. His collapse was scary. Sad stuff.

Remember Parish as a Hornet playing with Zo?!

Parish used to destroy Zo in the post.

That game sucked and made the series quite somber even though the Hornets got the win.
I used to have a Sports card shop at a flea mall and guys were wanting Reggie Lewis bball cards bc they thought they would be more valuable bc he died...it was sickening since I loved Reggie Lewis.

I refused to sell them for a few days.


I used to record most every Hornet game and key matchups on TNT...i had about 40-50 vhs tapes of Basketball games.

When I moved into my house 4 years ago I found all these VHS tapes and watched hours of Anfernee Hardaway destroying people in Hawaii...UNLV vs Todd Day and Arkansas....Grant Hill owning Glen Robinson in the NCAA tourney...the Hornets series...a bunch or old Golden State with Tim Hardaway at his most explosive...I was BBall obsessed.

Those games show how night and day college BBall was when you could identify each school by their players for at least three years.

Most satisfying game was Kansas vs UNC where Rick Fox missed open layups(point shaving?!) and let a hairy armpit Mark Randall, Adonis Jordan and Rex Walters beat that mega-team in the final 4.

I actually thought UNC was the better team to match up with UNLV....nope it was DUKE taking care of the goliaths.

I have game 3 of this series on VHS. At least I think it is game 3. I will have to find it, but it is the game Dell Curry went off for 27 points in the Hive.

I swear I tried to model my game exactly like Dell Curry's.  I even incorporated the pump fake step through leaner for three, much to my coaches chagrin.

 

This team has 4 of my all time favorite players

This may sound dumb, but man, I wish NBC still showed basketball. I miss these graphics and everything...
