It’s the holiday season. In the spirit of the season, we asked Charlotte Hornets fans on Twitter what they wanted for whatever holiday they celebrate this time of year. The answers were varied, but there were some common themes.
We’ll get the...less friendly ones out of the way first.
Trade Batum for a rebounder.— Caleb Wygal (@calebwygal) December 23, 2019
Batum and M. Williams be traded to dump their salaries— Levi (@Levi29457200) December 23, 2019
Maybe not as fair.
A few fans wanted to see the Hornets get more wins under their belt, and maybe even push for the playoffs.

To finish games rather than being up at half and lose— Chris (@CGPhotos13) December 24, 2019
Playoffs.— Austin (@AustinDaisey11) December 23, 2019
But the number one wish on Hornets fans’ list is to finally be gifted some positive draft luck.

Rae’s growth to be long term and sustainable, alongside a top 5 pick.— Carl Simpson (@TheProjectC) December 23, 2019
(I’m guessing this person meant Tae AKA Devonte’ Graham)
#1 overall pick in the draft— Nathan Shaw (@allflynate) December 23, 2019
For our young core to keep playing well but lose the rest of our games.— Hartford Zirkle (@H_Zerq) December 24, 2019
My gift for the Hornets chanukah end up with 38 wins not make the playoff but yet somehow finally win the NBA lottery. Devonte Graham making the NBA All star team. PJ Washington win the NBA rookie of the year award— Shaked Bar-Tal (@sportsfan8282) December 23, 2019
That last one is probably my favorite. So much ambition. So much hope. So much room for tragic disappointment. We could only dream of being so lucky.
So, At the Hive commentors, what did the Twitter people miss? What’s your holiday wish for the Hornets?
And of course, we at At the Hive would like to wish all of you safe and happy holidays!
