Charlotte Hornets Schedule in 2014-15
The Charlotte Hornets are ready to sting the competition this season as they
take to the court and host some of the top teams in the National Basketball Association. The Hornets are armed with a potent
lineup that features some dangerous offensive weapons, and this team will be looking to rise in the ranks of the Eastern Conference
in 2014-15. They're going to have to play well against some tough teams at home, but this club looks capable of doing so.
team that the Hornets will have to step up their game against is the Miami Heat. The Heat may have lost LeBron James this
offseason, but they replaced him with Luol Deng and were able to bring back both Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade. That is still
a formidable trio, and the Hornets will have to play their best to send them back to South Beach with some losses this season.
tough divisional rival that will visit Charlotte this season is the Washington Wizards. The Wizards won their first playoff
series in years last postseason and look to be a team on the rise in the East. With a young backcourt duo of Bradley Beal
and John Wall blossoming right before our eyes, the Hornets will have to play at the top of their game to overcome Washington's
intriguing mix of young players and veterans. There are plenty of awesome games on the Hornets' schedule this season.
Charlotte Hornets Team Info
The Charlotte Hornets are coming off what was probably their best season in franchise
history, as they reached the postseason for just the second time since entering the league as an expansion organization. Armed
with a new name that is also an old one, the Hornets are looking to rise in the ranks of the Eastern Conference. Last offseason's
addition of big man Al Jefferson proved to be one of the best moves of that offseason. Big Al was a true go-to guy in the
post for Charlotte last season, carrying the team at times. While Jefferson looks to be in his prime, the rest of the young
Charlotte roster is growing around him. The Hornets made a big splash this offseason to get another potential go-to player
when they signed guard Lance Stephenson. Stephenson has been criticized for his antics and attitude on the court, but nobody
denies his talent. Stephenson thrived for the Indiana Pacers last season, leading the NBA in triple-doubles. Stephenson will
likely look to be the second scoring option behind Jefferson, and if he can contain his emotions he could be just the type
of weapon to take this Charlotte team to the next level. The Hornets also added some real talent through the draft, using
their first-round selections to land forward Noah Vonleh and guard PJ Hairston. Hairston is another talented two-guard that
needs to learn to become more of a professional, and many draft pundits thought that Charlotte got the steal of the lottery
in Vonleh. The Indiana product slipped to Charlotte with the ninth pick after it was speculated that he could go as high as
fourth. The Hornets now have a really intriguing roster that could elevate this team into the top half of the Eastern Conference
standings if the pieces mix together well.
Charlotte Hornets History
The Charlotte Hornets are a professional
basketball franchise that is a member of the National Basketball Association, the elite basketball league of the world. The
Hornets were formed in 2004, giving the city of Charlotte an NBA franchise for the first time since the original Charlotte
Hornets left town for New Orleans (they are now the New Orleans Pelicans). The Hornets call the Southeast Division of the
Eastern Conference home, and find themselves pitted against divisional foes like the Orlando Magic, Miami Heat, Atlanta Hawks
and Washington Wizards with regularity as they all battle it out for the division crown. The team made its first playoff appearance
during the 2009-10 season, then made the postseason for the second time in franchise history in 2013-14. The team is still
yet to win a playoff series, but the Hornets are hoping to change that as soon as this season.
National Basketball League is the best pro hoops league in the world, and that is why the best players from all around the
globe come to suit up for an NBA team. NBA action is the most exciting brand of basketball, as these elite athletes fly up
and down the court showcasing their skill sets on a nightly basis. It doesn't get any better than seeing a quality team like

Charlotte Hornets Trivia
did Charlotte Hornets point guard Kemba Walker attend college?
The answer is the University of Connecticut, where he
led the team to a National Championship during his junior season. Walker was able to graduate in just three years, so following
his title season he left college for the NBA, and the Hornets selected him in the lottery of the NBA Draft. Walker has quickly
become one of the best players on the Charlotte roster, and the team is looking for him to continue his development.
