Chris Paul Derek FisherPrior to the 2008-09 season, the Hornets were considered among the steadiest of road blocks thought to impede L.A.’s chances in the West, but the Hornets ended up fighting just to finish seventh to earn the right to face Denver in the First Round, where they fell 4-1.

In the offseason, the Hornets traded center Tyson Chandler for Charlotte’s Emeka Okafor, lost Rasual Butler to the Clippers and drafted UCLA point guard Darren Collison to back up Chris Paul.

Hornets radio studio host Joe Block joined us to discuss those topics and more as we continue piecing through the Western Conference.
