At The Hive writers Chase Whitney and James Plowright are back for episode four of ATH Live. This week, they discuss The Athletic’s Sam Vecenie’s NBA prospect rankings, three Hornets were ranked among the top-50 “prospects” (most players on a rookie contract) in the league before discussing James Borrego’s tenure as Hornets head coach and the likelihood of seeing LaMelo Ball and/or Miles Bridges in the skills challenge and dunk contest during All-Star weekend. To end the show, Chase and James interview former At The Hive writer and long-time Hornets fan, Nick Denning.

Interview topics:

-James and Nick congratulate a former podcast guest of theirs

-Nick’s personal 180 on Terry Rozier and his signing with the Hornets

-Buzz Peterson stories from Nick’s days working around him at UNC-Wilmington

-Best/worst moments as a Bobcats/Hornets fan

-Update on former Hornets Summer Leaguer Keith Rendleman

-Memories writing for At The Hive

-Nick’s bold prediction for the rest of the season

Chase and James also take mailbag questions from Hornets fans at any point. If you have a question or topic you’d like to hear discussed, send it to or comment on this post and it’ll likely be discussed on the next episode. Again, any feedback listeners have is welcome and constructive criticism is appreciated. We want this show to be as good and fun to listen to as possible and are willing to make changes/adapt on the fly.
