Buzz Around The Web: Opening Week

Hey! The NBA season has started! Here's some things you can read.

Sam Sharpe-USA TODAY Sports

The NBA season has started. (That's good!) The Hornets won their home opener, coming back from a twenty-point deficit and hitting some big shots near the buzzer. (That's really good!) As such, the Internet had a lot of things to say about the professional basketball team in Charlotte. (Despite the Bobcats' history with that sort of thing, that's good too!)

In case you missed Kemba's big shots Wednesday night, James Herbert at CBS Sports has the clips of that for you, plus Lance Stephenson's huge dunk over Larry Sanders.

Prefer Vines? Here's how you can re-watch Kemba's game-tying three and stepback overtime game-winner over and over.

At USA Today, Jeff Zillgit gave some credit to Michael Jordan for the franchise's turnaround.

DeAntae Price of The Sporting News wrote his game story on Lance Stephenson, who I think I'll always be interested in reading about. (And, as a bonus #FF, DeAntae is a great follow on Twitter.)

Evan Massey at HoopsHabit reviewed and graded the 4-year, $48 million extension that Kemba Walker signed earlier this week.

Zach Lowe of Grantland, the current basketball writing MVP, gave us some preseason power rankings and a section on every team. The Hornets are about halfway down the list.

In the most important news of the week, Cameron La Fontaine of Fansided gave us some vital information on the $75, eight-pound cheeseburger that the Hornets are selling at Time Warner Cable Arena this season.

In more serious news, Jeff Taylor was sentenced to 18 months probation, stemming from his arrest for domestic violence earlier this year. The Charlotte Observer has a story on that, and ESPN picked up an Associated Press report about his guilty plea.
