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.
