#3298376 Mark Price hired as next UNCC bb head coach

Posted by cdandi1 on 25 March 2015 - 08:50 AM

Though this isn't ideal, I feel that Price has laid the proper foundation for MKG and that he can continue to improve his jump shot with hard work and repetition. 


Who's to say that MKG couldn't call Mark up if he was having issues for a quick lesson or two?

So jealous I won't be able to be there ... I'm also oddly okay with my wife's similar infatuation with "Lukey Poo" ...

#2756440 Hornets Transformation Thread - Live Press Conference @ 12:30 PM (Updated 5/7...

Posted by cdandi1 on 29 April 2014 - 11:49 PM

Doesn't really become official to me until I can type in hornets.com and not be redirected to the Pelicans.  Wonder when the website officially changes. Anyone have any word on that?


I have no idea.  That was part of the reason for making the thread... as a way consolidate all changes in one area so we know when changes happen. 

A poster on another forum said they spoke with their ticket rep today, and they confirmed that in "their department" they were the Charlotte Hornets... and that's how they were speaking with clients.  When asked when the online would change, they couldn't provide a timeline.

Posted by cdandi1 on 29 April 2014 - 01:40 PM


The Bobcats transformation to Hornets is in full swing and I figured having one thread for all the information would be the best and easiest way for people to stay up-to-date.  I'll update the OP frequently as more and more information becomes available.

#2739587 Honestly, could this team pull one off the biggest upsets in history?

Posted by cdandi1 on 14 April 2014 - 10:24 PM

Isn't Dewayne wade crippled?  I'll take my chances with Henderson vs Wade.  I like Henderson defensively vs wade more so than anyone Miami has vs Jefferson or even Kemba walker. 

The xfactor will be not having Jeff Taylor who is another defensive wing who could matchup vs wade or LBJ for a change of pace from MKG. 

Don't think the 'Cats can pull 4 out of 7 vs Miami... but I like our matchup at the PG and C positions.  I'm not scared of wade.  I'm more scared of Bosh on the perimeter stretching the floor and LeBron vs anyone really.

Bought a pair upstairs this morning!  Convinced myself that if I bought uppers for game 3 or 4, I could afford uppers for game 6 if necessary. 

Pretty pumped!!!

#2703519 How many games have you attended this season

Posted by cdandi1 on 17 March 2014 - 07:43 PM

Went to the logo reveal game vs Utah and have made plans to attend a playoff game if the 'Cats are in the playoffs.  I would have season tickets if I could.

The way Miles has been playing in PHX, the plumees may end up having better pro than college careers. 

#2647945 Kiss Detroits Pick Goodbye

Posted by cdandi1 on 09 February 2014 - 06:47 PM

Lets wait and see how the rest of the season goes in terms of Detroit's tank.  Do they tank because of lack of coaching?  Do they trade all of their talent away? 

If they trade all their talent away and full blown tank mode, it may be a blessing for us.  That pick is only top 1 protected next year, so if they sell the farm they may suck for a year or more thus a high pick next year (barring they don't win the lottery next year). 

There is a lot that can happen, but it may boil down to... would the hornets rather have Detroit's pick at 9 or higher this year or a top five pick next?

I figured I would consolidate all of the new Charlotte Hornets jersey court designs floating around online.  All of these are fan made except for figure 2 .  My personal favorite is No. 1

Season Opener Official Game Thread


Tip:  8:00 pm Eastern

Location:  Houston Toyota Center, Houston, Texas

TV:  Fox SportSouth 
Radio:  WFNZ 610 am the FAN Charlotte
Other:  Online Radio stream via Bobcats.com & official game chat at Bobcats.com
Official Bobcats.com preview http://www.nba.com/b...ys-beat-rockets





Last Year:  Houston won both games, 109-95 and 100-94.  
Series Trends:  Houston has won 13 of last 15 and 8 straight at home (nba.com)
Next Match up:  March 24, 2014

Vegas:  Houston: -13



Charlotte Hornets  

PG:  Kemba Walker
SG:  Gerald Henderson
SF:  Michael Kidd-Gilchrist
PF:  Cody Zeller**
  C:  Al Jefferson

Reserves:  Roman Sessions, Ben Gordon, Jeffery Taylor, Josh McRoberts, Bismack Biyombo, Anthony Tolliver, Jannero Pargo, James Southerland, Jeff Adrien

IMO:  Expect Southerland to be inactive, toss-up between Adiren and Tolliver

Out:  Haywood 

Houston Rockets


PG:  Patrick Beverley 
SG:  James Harden

SF:  Chandler Parsons

PF:  Dwight Howard
C  :  Omer Asik


Reserves:  Jeremy Lin, Francisco Garcia, Omri Casspi, Donatas Motiejunas, Terrence Jones


I hope I didn't step on anyone's toes by starting the first game thread...but I had a few minutes to put it together so I thought I would. 

Here's to Jefferson playing without ankle concerns and hopefully a Horncats win!

**NOTE:  Most media outlets outside of Charlotte list Zeller as the starter not McRoberts, while the Observer is projecting McRoberts to the starter.  Regardless, look for Bismack and whoever doesn't start between McBob and Cody to get plenty of minutes against a physical tandem of Osik and Howard.  Also, Jefferson stated earlier in the week he think he will go though the team lists him as questionable.
