Michael Jordan’s Charlotte Hornets have not had many recent playoff appearances. All-time, the Hornets have yet to win a championship. The Hornets have had some great players to watch, though: Larry Johnson, Alonzo Mourning, Glen Rice, and Kemba Walker. During James Borrego’s tenure (2018-2022), they did not make the postseason, but he did improve the team. Be sure to get your Hornets tickets today to see the team’s stars. On AwesomeSeating.com, you can find face-value options for Hornets tickets to watch Charlotte basketball.
The Hornets have an interesting history, as Charlotte went from having a basketball franchise in 2002 to not having one the following year. However, Charlotte got a team back just three seasons later. In 2002, owner George Shinn moved the Hornets from Charlotte to New Orleans. After just a few years of watching their Hornets playing basketball in New Orleans, Charlotte basketball fans got a “new” basketball franchise. The Charlotte Bobcats’ first season was 2004-05. Then in 2013, the New Orleans Hornets changed their name to the New Orleans Pelicans. The Charlotte Bobcats became the Charlotte Hornets beginning with the 2014-15 season, and their franchise includes the “old” Charlotte Hornets (1988-2002).
In the late 1980s, the NBA awarded expansion teams to four cities. In 1988, the Charlotte Hornets was founded. The Orlando Magic basketball franchise was established the following year. Neither Charlotte nor Orlando has an NBA championship, and these franchises also have a lack of retired numbers. The two squads met in the playoffs a couple of times and split those meetings. The 2001 and 2002 playoffs were solid for the Hornets, as Paul Silas coached them to two playoff series victories, including one against the Magic.
Before LeBron James was even an NBA player, the Hornets took on the Heat in the first round of the 2001 playoffs. Charlotte had some high scorers in that series – Jamal Mashburn (23.7 points per game), Baron Davis (20.3), and David Wesley (16.7) – en route to the three-game series sweep of Miami. More than a decade later, the Big Three Heat of James, Wade, and Bosh swept Kemba Walker and the Bobcats in 2014. Then, two years later, Charlotte almost got by Wade and the Heat but lost in seven games.
Geographically, the Charlotte Hornets and Atlanta Hawks are close. They have just one playoff series against each other in 1998. Glen Rice’s Hornets were a very strong team in 1997-98. Coached by Hall of Famer Dave Cowens, the Hornets had won 50-plus games for the second straight season: 54-28 in 1996-97 and 51-31 in 1997-98. These were the two best seasons in franchise history. In the first round of the 1998 playoffs, Rice, Anthony Mason, Vlade Divac, and David Wesley led the Hornets to the four-game series victory over Steve Smith, Mookie Blaylock, Alan Henderson, and the Hawks.
