    Hornets in Lin-Now Mode

    in Basketball

    The Charlotte Hornets have made a series of moves this offseason but none hotter than signing free agent point guard Jeremy Lin. He brings a long millions of loyal fans worldwide. Is it a stretch to call Jeremy Lin the most popular Hornets player? Lin was introduced by the Hornets on Monday and had some interesting things to say about his role in Charlotte and how the city is already embracing him (maybe a little too tightly). We'll discuss our rules of celebrity engagement. 

    Listen for more on Lin and the signing of Andrew Harrison. Can the former Kentucky Wildcat make it through training camp and earn a roster spot? Where does that leave Brian Roberts?

    PLUS Summer League offered fans more than just a look at the next generation of Hornets players, it also came with a brand new way to handle overtime. Should the strange new rules make their way to the NBA?

    It's Hornets talk for the hardcore fan, it's Hive Talk Live.

    Where Are They Now?Plattsburgh High School Hornets-

    Since I began working with you back in your junior year, of high school physical fitness has always been a big part of your life. How have you transitioned from being a athlete and training year around for your sport to staying active in regular daily life?

    I’ve tried to be a bit creative lately and have tried to stay active in ways other than weight lifting. I really enjoy mountain biking and hiking. I’ve also spent a lot of the time I used to spend training exploring other activties. I’ve found that in my last 6 months here I’ve seen and done more in the area than I did in my fours years in high school. I’ve also been wine tasting in Napa/Sonoma and skiing in Tahoe, which I never did before either. My main interests now are to start surf fishing and swimming more regularly.
