We start out with one of my favorite pieces of all-time. Not because it is expertly well-written, just the message it is trying to send is something I'm happy is receiving recognition. Sacramento Kings wing Caron Butler penned a piece for the Players Tribune about why Kemba Walker should be an All-Star. Walker has made a significant jump this season in my mind and he has become as lovable as ever to Hornets fans.
To follow up the Kemba pub, the fellas at Hive Talk Live discussed Kemba's season and Butler's thoughts on Walker being an All-Star. With guest Nata Edwards from WFNZ 610 the Fan, the guys also diagnosed Charlotte' troubles of late and what it says about this team.
From rather serious to rather funny. Jeremy Lin has made waves this season with all his different hair styles. My personal favorite, and I think most agree, is the pointy hair straight out of Dragonball Z. Lin brought out this style on Saturday night against Milwaukee. Unfortunately for Bucks guard Jerryd Bayless, Lin's hair may have caught him in the eye on a drive to the basket.
It's not all bad at the Hive these days. Despite the string of losses lately, some of Charlotte's young players have made noticeable gains this season. Recently, the play of Cody Zeller and P.J. Hairston has opened some eyes. At the Hive's Nick Denning tackled the inside game that has supported Zeller's rise while Russell Varner takes a shot at the outside improvement made by Hairston.
