Welcome to an in-depth breakdown of the 2014-15 Charlotte Hornets season!
Each section contains a look back at the player’s season. You’ll see relevant stats and data, interesting video examples of strengths, weaknesses and idiosyncrasies and an overall narrative on the possibility of the individual’s future in Charlotte.
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist – his awesome defense, mid-range shooting and struggles at finishing at the rim;
Cody Zeller – his all-around defense. inconsistent shooting and future on the team;
Mo Williams – the breath of fresh air the trade for him was, his over-confident defense;
Gary Neal – one of the worst shooting seasons ever;
Al Jefferson – whether he should re-consider his career path and his pathetic defense;
Jeffery Taylor – the “3-and-D” specialist who ends up being “D-and-no-3”;
Gerald Henderson – the soldier who gives up his body for the franchise and plays as if these were the 80s;
PJ Hairston – the second biggest chucker in the NBA who needs to improve to stay in the league.

With the playoffs rapidly approaching and our Charlotte Hornets thus becoming less relevant, I made the decision to go ahead and post half of the breakdowns while it’s still Friday morning for all of my North American readers.
The other half is coming sometime soon in the near future.
I hope you enjoy the read and appreciate all of the hard work I put into this.
Moreover, thanks to all the Hornets fans and dedicated readers I had throughout the season!
My intention is to be back next season and again cover the highs and lows of the Hornets.
Here’s hoping that I do manage to finish part two in a timely manner and have the free time to do some more creative stuff on the other teams in the post-season.
