@yaboytonez Kobe-Bryant like persona??? Who are you watching? I'm usually yelling at the TV for Rivers to shoot the damn ball instead of passing up open shots! I think he's trying too hard to be TOO unselfish. He says all the right things. Doesn't pout. Plays hard. Plays good D. The jump from last year to this year has been fantastic, but he is still in a kids body. He can get to the rim whenever he wants, but he has got to get stronger so he can absorb that contact and still finish. I'll wait until he fills out before I make a final observation, but as far as attitude, you are WAY off base.

@Michael McNamara It's on the espn highlights.
1 month, 1 week ago on Pelicans Beat Magic, Anthony Davis is a Monstar
@tzander01 he makes too much money. We can get 2 or 3 guys who can make up for what he does for the money we pay him. 15 million for options and flexibility? Can't win that way.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Eric Gordon and Changing the Cast
@ericsnow The Mavs started aggressively trapping EG in the mid-2nd quarter. Got the ball out of his hands. It was usually the big who was guarding Jason Smith. They would run that "blitz trap" that Miami uses, then big would get back. The EG would dribble out of the trap, and the guard would crowd him and the big would help as soon as EG picked a side. Great adjustment by Dallas, something that we don't see very often from our team.
That sub at the end of the third was absolutely the most frustrating thing for me. We had cut the lead to 13 or 14 I think, and then they take EG out and boom: back to 20. That kind of stuff is the stuff that drives me nuts about Monty. Also the fact that he ignores the 3 point line on both ends of the court. 14 3pt FGs to 3? Awful.
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Shorthanded Pelicans Dropped by Mavericks
@xman20002000 @DavidLeBoeuf @GerryV Evans has been averaging damn near a triple double the last 10 games. Gordon doesn't rebound. He doesn't get assists. Doesn't make anyone better offensively. Is gawd awful on the break. Inefficient. Good on ball defender, terrible help defender. Shoots a low percentage.
Gordon is a good player, but is a one trick pony. Every team needs a guy like him who can get to the rim when they want. We already have a few of those guys, and those guys make people better.
Evans is a much better player all around than Gordon. We could take 15 million and get 3 guys (a 3 and D SF, a shooter at SG, and a center who can give you 20 minutes a game) that make you better.
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Pelicans’ late run comes up short in overall flat effort vs. Wizards
@xman20002000 @marios123 If this team didn't have Gordon on the payroll, they could have Lopez, Vasquez, Tyreke, and another 8 million to spend on another player or two and we would be much better off. Lopez-AD-8 million$ SF, Evans, Holiday starting, w/ Smith, Anderson, Vasquez, Aminu, Rivers coming off the bench. This team would be much better off w/o Gordon. The hard part is he has been playing pretty well, but his skill set is redundant and that money could be better used in other places.
@xman20002000 @DavidLeBoeuf @GerryV Onuaku? really? That was your answer?

@GerryV @DavidLeBoeuf Jrue can shoot it. Morrow can. Hell Evans shot 35% from 3 last year, this year he's not even taking any. Gordon's not taking them either. Holiday is around 47% on the catch and shoot/spotting up! Can't just go to the rim all the time, Washington played with 5 guys in the paint all night!
It's hard to make more 3's, when we don't take any damn 3's. Shoot. The. Damn. Ball.
@504ever @DavidLeBoeuf If rudy gay can get traded with that contract, anyone can.
2 months, 1 week ago on Complete Team Effort Leads to Pelicans Victory Over Denver
I think Gordon has been playing great. I never really held the "my heart is in phoenix" thing against him either. But it's time to deal him. That 15 million can be used to make us a true contender. Also, Roberts needs to go and Rivers needs to play. Roberts was awful last night. Dude dribbles the shot clock down to 7 and takes a long contested 2 pointer. At least rivers can match up on D and is ok on offense (plus he's 7 years younger). I would take a Rudy Gay type deal for him. Gordon for Wilson Chandler would be great, but after the way WC burned us last night I don't know if Denver would bite.
The best thing for this team would be for Evans and Gordon to switch roles. Having Evans starting with Holdiay has proven to be our best backcourt this season, and as you stated is our backfield of the future going forward. Gordon coming off the bench in a sixth man role, where he can have the ball in his hands constantly and creating for the 2nd unit would be devastating. Evans has been really good with that 2nd unit, but Gordon's ability to knock down the 3 would open that unit up even more.
That being said, if Monty were to make that move Gordon would start crying and go into the tank. So even though I think it would be the best move, I don't think it's possible.
2 months, 1 week ago on Jrue Holiday and Tyreke Evans are the Pelicans Backcourt of the Future
Holiday is playing his ass off after a tough start. He has (quietly) been f'n fantastic for the last few weeks. Very encouraging for this team going forward. Come back AD!!!!
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Pelicans handle Grizzlies
The Cavs have spent the #4, #4, and #1 picks in respective drafts on Tristan Thompson, Dion Waiters, and Anthony Bennett.....Yuck.
3 months, 1 week ago on Breaking the Cycle
Please play more lineups w/ Aminu at the 4. He kills us offensively as a 3 but as a 4 he's fine. I'd much rather have him playing the 4 than Amundson or Stiemsma.
3 months, 2 weeks ago on Pelicans Rally, Beat Cavaliers
@kwilly15bb definitely one game vs. a crap team. It wasn't the result, it was the way they played. Getting to the rim and finishing, spacing the floor, actually TAKING 3 point shots, running off of missed shots and blocks offensively. Defensively the switches were crisp, the rotations were strong and correct, people were in the right spots, opponents weren't getting wide open looks. If they would have played how they did vs. the Jazz, and won by 40, I wouldn't be any more encouraged. Baby steps.
3 months, 2 weeks ago on Small Sample Size Theater
Best thing Ryan Anderson does on defense is he is a SMART defender. All of his rotations were correct, all of his closeouts were strong. He may not be a good man to man defender, but as a team defender he is what we needed.
This team still needs one more big. If any of our three bigs goes down, the drop off is DRAMATIC. I really wish he would play Aminu as our 4th big in small ball lineups more often and put Amundson in only if we are playing against a team with a big bruiser down low.
Great win. That is all.
