About James Plowright

I am from Manchester, England and for some odd reason have a total infatuation with the NBA and more specifically, the Charlotte Hornets. I have written for various NBA websites including Bobcats.com, Real GM and ESPN's True Hoop Network site Queen City Hoops. Two years ago I started this website after becoming disillusioned with the major media outlets forgetting about the "bad" teams in the NBA. My goal is to bring a spotlight on the darkest, least talented corners of the NBA.
