Former Hornet Caleb Martin Steals the Show in Game 7 of Eastern Conference Finals

Hornets supporters will now watch former Hornet Caleb Martin compete for an NBA championship, as if they didn't already have enough to be furious about. 

The other Martin brother is not just competing for a championship; he has also grown to be a crucial component of the Heat's playoff success, especially in the Eastern Conference Finals. 

Martin averaged roughly 20 points per game in the seven-game series between Miami and Boston, making him the most reliable scorer on either side of the scoreboard.

Even though hindsight is always 20/20, the choice was reasonable at the time. 

They were receiving comparable output from players with similar playing styles like Caleb and Cody Martin. Instead of spending money on two of the same thing, Charlotte decided to sign Kelly Oubre Jr.

Cody Martin demonstrated his value in an enlarged role in 2021–22 by averaging 10.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists, and 1.7 steals per game in 36 games.

 A new, $31.3 million, four-year contract resulted from that production. Unfortunately, owing to knee and quad problems, Cody only played in seven games this season.
