Charlotte Hornets Betting History

Even though the Hornets have sprent the last two years improving on their absymal 2011/12 season, it's still unlikely they'll reach an NBA Final or Eastern Conference Final anytime soon with Miami Heat dominating their shared conference with LeBron James. Expect them to be heavy underdogs in most games, offering high payouts to those that can accurately predict when the team will pick up their wins.

In 2013/14 the Hornets did well to beat the spread 57.83% of the time. However due to low scores betting on the under option in the Over/Under betting market was a profitable bet seeing as their Under percentage was 51.8% against their Over which was 48.2%.

2014/2015 Charlotte Hornets Schedule

The Charlotte Hornets will make their long-awaited return to NBA regular season action with a home game against the Milwaukee Bucks on October 29. The 82-game slate features 17 weekend home dates, including seven Fridays, nine Saturdays and the first Sunday home game since the 2011-12 season. Fans have been long-awaiting the return of the Hornets to Charlotte, so tickets are likely to sell out fast.

Charlotte Hornets History

After the Hornets left for New Orleans, the fans of Charlotte pleaded for an NBA franchise. These prayers were answered in 2004 when the Charlotte Bobcats were created as an expansion franchise. Yet after ten years, the Charlottes reclaimed their Hornets name after New Orleans ditched it to become the more location-appropriate Pelicans. With three name changes in the last 16 years, Charlotte has had a busy time of it. In the 2011-2012 season the then-Bobcats unfortunately set the record for lowest winning percentage in a season, however due to the lockout shortened season they did not achieve the most losses.

Charlotte Hornets Star Player: Gerald Henderson Jr.

Henderson decided to forgo his senior season with the Duke Blue Devils so he could enter the 2009 NBA Draft. He was drafted 12th overall by Charlotte and signed a multi-year deal with the team in July that year. The 2011–12 season would be something of a breakout year for Henderson with the then-Bobcats. Despite finishing with the worst record in the history of the NBA, Henderson proved to be an effective scorer and was one of the lone bright spots on the team. Henderson saw career numbers in minutes per game (33.3), field goal percentage (45.9%), rebounds per game (4.1), assists per game (2.3), and points per game (15.1). He would prove to be the main offensive weapon for the then-Bobcats, particularly late in the season. On March 12, 2013, Henderson had a career high in points scored in a win over the Boston Celtics when he scored 35 points. He matched that total against the New York Knicks on March 29, 2013.

Charlotte Hornets Star From the Past: Gerald Wallace

Gerald Wallace was drafted with the 25th pick of the 2001 NBA draft by the Sacramento Kings. He spent four years in Sacramento before being drafted by the Charlotte Hornets in their 2004 expansion draft. Wallace was a leading member of the young Hornets roster but was consistently plagued by injuries. Wallace finally had an injury-free season in 2010 and was rewarded by being selected for the NBA All-Star game and the NBA All-Defensive First Team. Wallace was traded to the Portland Trail Blazers in early 2011 but still remains the leadings points scorer in Charlotte Hornets history.

Charlotte Hornets Head Coach: Steve Clifford

Steven Clifford has been the head coach of the Charlotte Hornets since 2013, taking over from Mike Dunlap. Before signing with the Hornets, Clifford had an extensive stint as an assistant coach with numerous NBA teams. Clifford implemented a defensive mentality in Charlotte during his first year as head coach turning the Charlotte Bobcats into a top five defensive team when in the years prior to his tenure they ranked near the bottom of the NBA in that category. He led the Bobcats to the 2014 NBA Playoffs in his first year as head coach, during which he coached the Bobcats to a 43-39 record. The two years prior to him joining the Charlotte Bobcats only had a combined total of 28 wins. He was named Eastern Conference Coach of the Month for April 2014 after he led the Bobcats to a 7-1 record leading to the playoffs. He finished fourth in Coach of the Year voting in his first year.
