Report: Charlotte Hornets Aggressively Seeking Trade

Lance Stephenson

This isn’t how how 2014-2015 was supposed to go for the Charlotte Hornets. Coming off one of the most successful campaigns in franchise history and riding high after signing Lance Stephenson and bringing the buzz back to North Carolina, Michael Jordan’s squad was a trendy preseason pick to gain homecourt advantage in the Eastern Conference. Instead, the 4-14 Hornets have been the biggest disappointment of the season’s first few weeks. And according to a new report, they’re already looking to shake things up via the trade market.

Watch Lance Stephenson Get Slapped…By Himself

Lance Stephenson

The best part about this is how upset Lance Stephenson first appeared, like he was about to go after Harrison Barnes. Stephenson took a shot the face trying to get around a Barnes screen to stay with a hot-shooting Klay Thompson, but — as he tongued whatever gash opened in his mouth after suffering the slap, it became apparent he had no one to blame but himself.

Make that two overtime game-winners for the Charlotte Hornets. Just over a week after Kemba Walker played hero against the Milwaukee Bucks in the return of Buzz City, Lance Stephenson kept the magic going with a last-second jumper of his own.

Lance Stephenson’s Fluky Videobomb Turns Into Meme

Derek Fisher, Lance Stephenson

Before Carmelo Anthony sealed the 96-93 win for the Knicks last night, Lance Stephenson heaved a desperation three-pointer, but he wasn’t able to get it off before the remaining eight-tenths of a second expired. Lance still thought he had been fouled on the attempt, and when he got up from the court to wonder at the no-call, his mug happened to pop up just as the camera was panning over to Knicks head coach Derek Fisher. A surprisingly funny meme was born. Read More »
