Charlotte Hornets, with a healthy Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, will win ... fewer games?

Charlotte Hornets forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (14) hasn’t stayed healthy enough for us to see all of what he can be. Maybe this is the year.

The Charlotte Hornets’ first game at home, and third of the season, is Oct. 29 against the Boston Celtics. I know what they’ve lost. I know what they’ve added. But what I most look forward to, along with watching Kemba Walker, is the return of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Because of injuries, we have yet to see all that MKG can do. ...

▪  The Hornets won 48 games last season. How about 46 this time around? ...

▪  Love that second-year player Frank Kaminsky, who is from suburban Chicago, wore a Steve Bartman Chicago Cubs’ jersey Monday to the Hornets-Chicago Bulls exhibition in Chicago. Kaminsky is a fan of the Chicago White Sox, and Bartman is a testament to Cubs’ fans at their worst. Kaminsky scored 14 in Charlotte’s overtime victory. Sometimes gall is good.
