The Stinger is a quick podcast focused around Hornets-related subjects, whether it be that lack of defensive rotation on the weak side, why Bizmack Biyombo is starting a season defining game, or rooting for the Wylie Coyote of the National Basketball Association. But it’s just a check-in. Just the stinger, just to see how it feels.
Zach Brown and Chase Whitney start The Stinger with four minutes left in the play-in game against the Indiana Pacers. As you are reading this in the future I’m sure you know the Pacers stomped the Charlotte Hornets like, well like a bug. 117 - 144. And it wasn’t even that close. Its important to keep in mind that the Charlotte Hornets took this lose despite the fact the the Indiana Pacers were without their two star players; Caris LaVert (Health and Safety Protocols) and Miles Turner (foot Injury).
This loss marks the end to another Charlotte Hornets season that did not make it to the playoffs. Zach has some qualms with that fact. But Chase Whitney quickly reminds Zach that the golden boy, LaMelo Ball, is just getting started.
