Since joining the league in 2011, Kemba Walker has not experienced much joy. The Charlotte Hornets have encountered year after year of sub .500 finishes, but the 2016 campaign will mark a change. 

The Michael Jordan-owned franchise are fourth in the Eastern Conference and barring a spectacular collapse, Walker will compete in the playoffs for the second time since he was drafted. 

Some brilliant moves in the summer of 2015, which saw Nicolas Batum and Jeremy Lin move to the Time Warner Cable Arena, have inspired the Hornets to a quite incredible season. 

In an interview with Michael Lee of The Vertical, the guard admitted he was tired of not being involved in postseason action. 

He said: "I’m tired of not being in the playoffs. I’m tired of having to watch the first round at home, not being a part of it.

"It’s a fun time for basketball. You know you get some national notoriety, of course. You want to be seen. You want to have fun. You want to play at the highest level. I don’t want to be there one year and then next year not make it. I want to be there every year."

The Hornets are a changed team and need just one more win in their remaining games to beat their previous franchise-best finish. 

Walker should get his wish to play in the playoffs, and Charlotte will certainly be an outside threat in the East.
