    Weekend worries? LaMelo Ball's showboating, Miles Bridges' 3P%, Gordon Hayward's ghosting.

    Weekend worries? LaMelo Ball's showboating, Miles Bridges' 3P%, Gordon Hayward's ghosting.

    The Hornets win out on the road but a few storylines are being hidden by tough wins. LaMelo Ball continues to take some chances that have left Head Coach James Borrego scratching his head and looking for a sub. Miles Bridges' 3 point percentage is way down. Gordon Hayward is nowhere to be found. We discuss it all PLUS we look back on the positives of a week full of winning in the Hive Life with David Walker.

    LaMelo unleashes on the Pacers, Hornets fall flat in ATL, MJ attacked

    LaMelo unleashes on the Pacers, Hornets fall flat in ATL, MJ attacked

    LaMelo Ball flexed his scoring muscle against Indiana but it was the turnovers that have Doug and Walker's eyebrows raised. Was the Hornets loss against the Atlanta Hawks a schedule loss? Wait, is Terry Rozier actually back or not? Enes Kanter makes a BIG allegation against Hornets owner Michael Jordan on national television, was it a fair one?
    **Correction: In the 3rd segment, the political race between Harvey Gantt and Jesse Helms is referred to as a "mayoral race." It was a race for a U.S. Senate seat.**

Great content, daily commute listen

I just recently moved to Charlotte and being new to the area and loving the hornets it’s nice to have this podcast to listen to daily to and from work. Listening to this show has made moving away from friends and family easier

Not very good.

I just want basketball content but Nata thinks he is some type social justice warrior. Like my guy we get you think everyone is racist but let’s talk some hornets basketball. Tbh they both aren’t very good.

Time waster

I have subscribed to this show on and off for a while and I can’t recommend it, except to one subset of people: Hornets fans desperate to hear any words about the Hornets. The two hosts both have their issues, one worse than the other. I know very little about them or their backgrounds so this is based strictly on the show.

Nata is cool, but rides the fence too much. Most discussion points end with him saying something to the effect of “I worry about this, but I can see where they’re coming from, maybe it’ll be okay.” Don’t hurt your neck sticking it out that far!

Walker has a silky radio voice, but his input basically vacillates from wrong to unsupported opinions. “The east is so strong” he said this week. The east has been the obviously weaker conference since the 98 Bulls were dismantled. There are 3 good teams and the rest might lose a series to the 7-10 seeds in the west. Also disagrees with a national writer about a player’s defense but cites no stats or anecdotes to explain why.

If you are a Hornets fan there aren’t a lot of places to hear people talk about your team, especially in the offseason. If you must have some, there are worse ways to spend a commute or something. But I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone but the most desperate fans.
