Lance Stephenson tries to leap over fan, completely fails

Man, Lance Stephenson must have really wanted to save this ball from going out of bounds. The Charlotte Hornets wing took to the skies and literally tried to leap over a courtside fan in an effort to gain an extra possession for his team. Unfortunately for Stephenson, two facts worked against him: 1. The ball was already out of bounds, so his attempt at such an athletic feat was...

The Charlotte Hornets are Michael Kidd-Gilchrist's team now

Who is or isn't the leader of the team isn't a primary concern for the Charlotte Hornets right now. They're more concerned with a five-game losing streak and trying to make the postseason.

#LetsTalk; A Request for Lance Stephenson

Every day I ask Lance Stephenson to give me a follow on Twitter.  My hashtag on the request is simply #LetsTalk.

The self proclaimed Buzz City has definitely lived up to the name.  The franchise has been re-branded meshing a little bit of old with a little bit of new, and what a roller coaster ride it has been.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- When Charlotte Hornets coach Steve Clifford is specifically asked about his coaching prowess and the remarkable job he's done this season in keeping the team together despite all the issues that have circulated, he deflects and gives a non-answer.
