It's that time of the week! Let's take a look at five of the best Charlotte Hornets links from around the internet:
During their trip to China, GM Rich Cho decided to get really crazy and eat some scorpions. Yes, that is right. That link is a clip of Rich Cho eating an actual scorpion. The fact that he is still alive to tell the tale is remarkable.
The always great Rick Bonnell at the Charlotte Observer made 10 observations from the team's China trip. All of them were great takes and with Rick following the team, he always brings great insight. Worth noting is his take on Frank Kaminsky and how he is currently "waiting his turn" in the frontcourt. As a rookie, that is to be expected but as Rick notes, Kaminsky's play has been solid thus far and he figures to be a regular part of the rotation at some point.
Today, the Hornets website officially announced the signing of veteran swingman Damien Wilkins. It had been rumored for a while that Wilkins was going to join the Hornets, especially give the recent injury to Michael Kidd-Gilchrist that will likely sideline him for the whole year. Wilkins last played professionally in Puerto Rico and for the USA in the Pan-American Games this summer, shining enough to get himself a deal with the Hornets.
The players definitely had a good time in China, but based on this clip, it looks like Frank Kaminsky was having the greatest time of them all. I don't know whether to be disturbed or laugh.
Finally, one last little interesting nugget, Kemba Walker signed a new deal with Jordan brand, electing to switch from Under Armour. Obviously, this is probably one of the side effects of having Michael Jordan as your owner. No news on what the current length and amount of the contract is, but Walker decided to part ways with Under Armour after his four year deal expired this summer. Now, we get to see Kemba rocking some nice Jordan's this season.
