Rick Bonnell
Beat Writer, Charlotte Observer

Long-time Charlotte Hornets beat writer Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer passed away suddenly on June 1. As Hornets Chairman Michael Jordan said, “Rick became the source for Hornets news in Charlotte.” Rick was a respected journalist, a dedicated father and loyal friend. In lieu of flowers, the Bonnell family asks donations be made to the Charlotte Hornets Foundation to honor Rick’s passion and love for this community, the NBA and the Charlotte Hornets – the team he covered for 30+ years.
