Across the last four NBA seasons, the Charlotte Hornets have been a model of consistency. Unfortunately for Hornets' fans, things have been consistently mediocre. Charlotte hovered around the middle of the league for offensive efficiency until last season. During the pandemic compromised 2019-20 campaign, the Hornets plummeted to the bottom of the NBA for scoring. They took this dubious honor by a fair margin as well. The Hornets have floated in the middle of the pack in scoring defense during this four-year stretch. The Hornets should only improve as their new cast of stars continues to gel as a unit. In the middle of a very winnable Southeast Division, Charlotte is no longer an afterthought as a possible Eastern Conference playoff team.

Not ironically, a team that posted mediocre statistics generated a mediocre record. After matching 36-win seasons between 2016 and 2018, Charlotte made a three-game improvement during 2018-19. However, the Hornets' winning percentage dropped last season to the worst number since an abysmal two-year stretch between 2011 and 2013 where Charlotte won a total of 28 games. Collectively, the last 20 seasons for the Hornets have been huge disappointments. The Hornets parted with fan-favorite Kemba Walker, but seem to have enhanced their scoring balance across these three players. Charlotte has already seen minimal improvements on offense, but are now pushing themselves into the NBA defensive top-10.

Fans were thrilled with a solid run through the 1990s that carried into the 2001-02 season. Unfortunately, 2002 would be the last time Charlotte would win an NBA playoff series. In fact, the Hornets have won a total of three playoff games in three first-round playoff exits. Hornets' fans watched a handful of inconsequential free agents leave town ahead of the 2020-21 schedule. There is also immense enthusiasm surrounding the new face of the franchise. Thus far, LaMelo Ball has not disappointed. Charlotte's new star became the youngest player in NBA history to post a triple-double just six games into his professional career. The Hornets have added a core of young-veterans around Ball. They made a deal with Boston to secure Gordon Hayward.
