In their last season as the Bobcats, the now-Charlotte Hornets shocked the world by turning into a 43-39 team after going 21-61 in the season prior, making the playoffs as the seventh seed. It was a sudden turnaround for a team that's been so bad for so long, and that they were swept out of the first round by the Miami Heat really undersells the team's growth. New names like Al Jefferson and coach Steve Clifford have (surprisingly?) highlighted a bright turn for the franchise into their Hornets era.
To discuss the Hornets, Chris Barnewall from SB Nation's At the Hive joined me.
