Top five Charlotte Hornets links of the week (May 8)

New, comments

I've scoured the internet for the best Hornets stories of the week. Here's a collection of what I found.

Welcome to another Friday, guys! This was as dead a week as we've seen this season, but that doesn't mean there's nothing Hornets-related going on around the web.

Let's start with something fun and exciting. Hornets.com recently published a video of Al Jefferson's top plays from this season. If you're a lover of footwork and fakes, this is for you. My personal favorite's at 1:25 — fakes left, drop step to the right, dunk. All while leaving Marc Gasol in the dust. Beautiful stuff.

Another link from Hornets.com, for those of you who don't frequent the site, is a review of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist's season. It's very well-rounded overall, touching on all aspects of his play, and if you're the type of person who likes to drop stats in the comments to prove a point, this article has a list of them signifying MKG's defensive impact.

Michael Jordan was seen breaking up a fight in Las Vegas after the Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather bout. The Observer breaks it down for us. "Peacemaker" doesn't seem like a Jordanesque descriptor, but here we are.

Rick Bonnell also wrote about how the huge jump in the NBA's salary cap (because of the new TV deal) will affect the Hornets' plans. He is, shall we say, pessimistic. The Hornets have a lot of short deals on their books, so they won't get the benefit of an underpaid player when the increase happens. You could argue Kemba Walker, depending on where you stand on him.

What should the Hornets do this offseason? Hoops Habit has already begun to speculate and put forth their opinion. Names include Draymond Green, Greg Monroe, and Goran Dragic. What do y'all think?
