Hey guys, we've assembled a list of the top five Charlotte Hornets stories from this week. There's a lot to talk about, and we will have features on some of these stories over the next week.

  1. Kemba Walker defended Steve Clifford after Thursday's game. Clifford's been subject to a lot of undeserved criticism, and it's nice to see Walker having his back.
  2. The Hornets are campaigning for Michael Kidd-Gilchrist to win his first Defensive Player Of The Year award.The numbers don't lie: The Hornets are much better on the defensive end when MKG is on the floor. Let's hope he gets back soon.
  3. We have two Lance Stephenson stories to share with you this week. In the first, Stephenson says he doesn't regret signing with the Hornets. Make of that what you will.
  4. In the second, Steve Clifford came out and said he was the guy that pushed the Hornets to sign Stephenson. We heard rumblings about this earlier in the season, and with a couple of DNP-CDs under his belt, this whole thing feels really weird.
  5. And finally, the guys over at Hive Talk Live discussed what impact Kemba's injury had on the Hornets among other things. If you're a Hornets fan, you listen to Hive Talk Live twice a week.
