The 2000–01 NBA season was the thirteenth season for the Charlotte Hornets in the National Basketball Association.[1] During the offseason, the Hornets acquired Jamal Mashburn, P.J. Brown and Otis Thorpe from the Miami Heat, and re-signed free agent Hersey Hawkins. With the acquisitions of Mashburn and Brown along with veterans David Wesley and Elden Campbell, plus an increased role for second-year guard Baron Davis, the Hornets finished the season third in the Central Division with a 46–36 record, and qualified for their sixth Playoff appearance. In the playoffs, the players all wore headbands to show team unity as they swept the 3rd-seeded Miami Heat in three straight games in the Eastern Conference First Round.[2] However, they were eliminated by the Milwaukee Bucks three games to four in the Conference Semifinals after taking a 3–2 series lead. Following the season, Derrick Coleman was traded back to the Philadelphia 76ers, second-year forward Eddie Robinson signed as a free agent with the Chicago Bulls, and Hawkins and Thorpe both retired.

The Hornets finished twenty-first in the NBA in attendance for the season.
