Even when the rebranded (can it be a rebranding if you’re just going back to an older brand? Do brands work? Somebody get me a new strategist on the phone) Charlotte Hornets are not anything close to title contenders, they’ll at least look good as they try to improve on the No. 7 seed they grabbed since the Bobcats last year.
The new duds are slick, and Lance Stephenson will unveil the club with tons of”no, no, YES!” razzle-dazzle. Not only that, but rookie big man Noah Vonleh is fascinating, and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist’s jumper looks more like a shooter than a contortionist pattern gone horribly wrong.
There is reason to get fired up about these Hornets. Perhaps you will say there’s a buzz in Charlotte. You wouldn’t say that, naturally, because that is about as hacky as it receives.
Suffice it to say the accession of Stephenson and much more minutes for Kidd-Gilchrist could assist the league’s sixth-ranked defense get even better this season. If the offense around focal point Al Jefferson also enhances (which it could with Kemba Walker heading into a contract season ), the Bugs could certainly increase the playoff ladder.
