The Hornets are eleven games out of the lead in the Southeast division, but 9-3 vs. Southeast opponents.

Can Head Coach Steve Clifford take the Hornets to the playoffs? Or has he reached the pinnacle with the team?

First-time All-Star Kemba Walker is stepping up his game, but the rest of the team remains average at best.

Former Indiana Hoosiers star Cody Zeller has the talent to be one of the best players in the National Basketball Association.

However, it’s draft lottery again for the once proud franchise which lost stars Penny Hardaway, “SHAQ” and most recent Dwight Howard.

First Year Head Coach Frank Vogel is putting his stamp on the defensive minded team. Point Guard Elfrid Payton fit Vogel style of play like a glove with his defense.

Twenty Four-year-old Evan Fournier is the team’s leading scorer, and they parted ways with Serge Ibaka.

Orlando will not make the postseason in 2017, but there is a belief among the active players. The key to an Orlando win is to match the intensity of Charlotte.
