Hornets Set Clear Expectations For New Season, Playoffs

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — It’s been four seasons since the Charlotte Hornets last made the playoffs, and frankly, they’re tired of it.

“Our ultimate goal is to make the playoffs,” said forward Miles Bridges, “We don’t want to be a team at the bottom of the east anymore, we want to be a dangerous team in the east.”

With the additions of LaMelo Ball and Gordon Hayward the talent level has increased in Buzz City, as has the hype around the team. The start of the season is less than three weeks away so the time to get on one page is short. But with the new style of positionless basketball that head coach James Borrego will deploy, the Hornets should be a fun team to watch. Bridges says he doesn’t care what position he plays or about individual goals, he just wants to win.

“We haven’t been a good organization for a long time, let’s just be honest,” said Bridges, “everybody here we’re tired of that.”

Bridges says the expectation is to make the playoffs this season.
