What I don't understand is, why are other teams siging NBA free agents and the Pelicans have only signed guys forigen guys. Maybe they tired but with no success. Who knows, anything is better than nothing.
9 months, 3 weeks ago on Game On: New Orleans Pelicans at Phoenix Suns
He made team USA due to an injury and now he is an All-Star. When things are meant to be, it happens. It has been to long since we had an All-Star (well not that long) but the first in a Pelicans uniform. Maybe after the All-Star game we will see a better and more motivated AD (team leader). Congratulation, you derserved it a week ago.

All I have to say is AD is a BEAST!. I think the time has started to believe in him as a leader. Reke showed that last night, by not forcing the shot and trusting in AD. I hope to see more from this duo.

@Steven J Gordon takes more then a quarter off, sometimes it may be the whols half that he decides not to show up. He plays a part time game but gets full time pay. that lucky bastard.

@macs21 @CPMDatson All the money he makes he needs to look good in both halves. He disappears too much for me.

Hopefully Darius Miller gets alot more playing time after this game. I wouldn't mind him moving into the starting line up. I hate that we have all these injuries, but it will have Monty a look at what others can do. He might be surprised by what he has sitting on the bench.
11 months, 1 week ago on Pelicans fall just a touch short on the Road
@ericsnow We don't need more shooting (right now), we need defense. We can have as many shooter as we want, but if none of them play denfense the end resuly will be the same. A lose. Playing defense will turn into easy offense.
11 months, 1 week ago on Shorthanded Pelicans Dropped by Mavericks
Man I can truly understand what Ryno is dealing with right now. Feb 2013 I suffered from a herinated disc in my lower back from a injury I had when I was in the Army in 1999. This was some of the worse pain I have experienced and it crapped me for almost 3 months. This is a injury that gets better with time and pain meds. I can honestly say, that since that happen my back has not been the same, but I have osteoarthritis in my lower back as well, so that's probably more of the problem than anything lol. I hope that Ryno fully recovers, because this can be an annoying injury.
11 months, 2 weeks ago on Anderson out Indefinitely
@Nithenz Portland is the only team to have the same strating 5 every game this yr. We have yet to have a game with the full foster. But I see good things in the near future.
12 months ago on Pelicans lose Nail Biter in Portland
He already he may be slighty better then what we already have coming off the bench. He did pretty damn good for only being with the team a day. Once he gets comfortable and gets a few more pratices under his belt, it will be all good. I think he will felt in nicely. Just gotta cut back on the stupid fouls. You cant teach 7'2" but you can teach him this offensive and defensive system. I cant even lie, I'm excited and glad he is on the Pels.
12 months ago on Scouting Report: Alexis Ajinca
Is there anymore info bout the signing of that 7'2" center from France? We need a presense in the middle asap.
1 year ago on Pelicans Outclassed by a Superior Warriors Team
Finally over .500 Christmas has come early. Glad NBAtv decided to stay with that game, great win.
I was listening to the broadcast through ESPN via the Bulls commentors and didnt realize that over the past 4 seasons this team has had 55 different player, thats crazy, but finally have a team that will be together for a few years.
1 year ago on New Orleans Pelicans Win a Marathon in Triple Overtime Against the Bulls
Monty finally realized that to be a successful the floor will need to be spaced. I loved the lineup change, teams cant just pack the paint. I hoped Aminu would have a better season then last year, but that doesnt look like it will happen and I think he may not be a Pelican must longer (he had his CHANCES). I agree, I would much rather Rivers over Roberts. Last night in about a minute in a half span Roberts had a turnover and two fouls. He can shoot thats about it, he is 27 and he is what he is and thats all we are coming to get outta him. Its time to move on from these two.
1 year ago on Monty tightens Rotation as Pelicans handle 76ers
Can somebody PLEASE get this in the hands of Monty so he can read this. I think he is a smart man and would at least give this a try for a few games. What does he have to lose, his job. That already in progess at the rate this team is going.
1 year ago on Should Ryan Anderson be Starting?
I have one question why didnt we go after Derek Williams? Hell we could have gave up Aminu just say easy as the Bucks gave up who ever that guys is.
Would this trade work, Gordon and Roberts for Deng? The Bulls are now in need of scoring guards and we need a 3. This is Deng last year under contract I think.
1 year ago on Pelicans Lose an Absolute Heartbreaker to the Warriors
Good read. I have be a die hard Saints fan fo going on 35 yrs. Even though the Saints are Superbowl bound, I am more excited about this season for the Pelicans. If I was in New Orleans I would be at the games showing my support.
1 year ago on Small Sample Size Theater Part Two
I don't feel Monty should be nervous, because he has had four different teams each year he has been here. He finally has players that will be here for a couple of years. He will finally have a chance to coach instead of teach. I think this team will improve through out the season barring injury.
I wouldnt trade Ryno. 3's are very important in today's game and we have one of the best in the league from his position. Unless we could get his quality of shooting or better. And he is cheap on top of that.

1 year, 1 month ago on The Pelicans Demolish Philadelphia in Ryan Anderson’s Season Debut
I dont think we wil be hearing anymore talk about trading Ryno, he is a very important pieces to this team. Tonight looked like the preseason for the first time but the game actually counted this time.
Well at least the scored over 100 for a change, even though they gave up more AGAIN. I'll take that very tiny victory.
1 year, 1 month ago on Pelicans can’t defend anyone, fall to Jazz
Maybe you should be a consultant for the Pelicans, because if they aren't reading this, they are missing out on some good information. Great read.
1 year, 1 month ago on The Pelicans Defense – and why they can’t hold a lead
@Aussie Pels Fan Its not Monty's fault they stop driving and setting for jumpshots. When this team attacks they build 10+ pts leads, and we they shoot jumpshots they lose. We have the tools but they put them up after the 1st qtr.
1 year, 1 month ago on Pelicans continue to be destroyed by stretch forwards
Morrow and Roberts got too many mins last night. And neither or half descent defenders all offense. On offense Roberts is fine but Morrow finds a spot and stays there, no movement at all. C'mon man! Just move.
I was at the game last night and the Magic players we hitting damn near every shot even with tight defense. We miss damn near every shot even the easy ones. And I agree that Withey should get more mins, can't learn how to play NBA ball if your not on the court. His future is brighter then those other two guys who names I don't need to mention. Once Ryno comes back, we will see the team we were hoping to see the team we saw in preseason, but thats 3 or more games away.
1 year, 1 month ago on Magic Go Bird Hunting
I'm not happy that they lose, but it a good learning experience. After having a good preseason they were riding high, but tonight showed them that it's real and they have to stay focused. They we riding high but that was a humbling lose. Orlando may be in trouble tomorrow tonight, I will be at that game to see it happen.
And tonight showed why we won't trade Ryno. Pels only shot 11 3s, Ryno can do that alone.
1 year, 1 month ago on Pelicans crack as Pacers ratchet up pressure
Bold Prediction Anthony Davis MVP. Hey didn't Derrick Rose win in his second yr. If he leads the team in damn near every stat and we have a winning record, it's possible.
1 year, 1 month ago on Pelicans Season Preview Google Hangout Video Chat – Monday. Oct. 28th at 7 PM CT
I now live in Orlando and I watched Austin Rivers play a few times in high school. I was happy when we drafted him last year. He has the work ethic of a star NBA player and the pedigree. I cant wait to see him in two years. But I cant wait 4 the Pelicans to play the Magic, I will be there showing my hometown support.
Do you think River has a chance a being a All Star at one point in his career?

@Caffeinedisaster And he has gotten better each year he has been in the league. His defense isn't the greatest, but I think that will improve this year also.
1 year, 5 months ago on In the NO Podcast Episode 143: Pelicans Free Agency Wrap Up, Part 1
Any thoughts on Paul Millsap? He is from La and I think he could play SF. Just something to throw out there.
1 year, 5 months ago on New Orleans Pelicans Free Agency Tracker
@Papa Pelican I agree. And he still is not done, I don't think. I hope not. I am more ready for the NBA then the NFL and I am a die hard Saints' fan since the day I was born. Now a die hard Pelicans' fan as well.
1 year, 5 months ago on New Orleans Pelicans to Acquire Tyreke Evans
@Michael McNamara Now I would go with rebounding. We have scorers all over the court so somebody has to rebound. I'm down with bringing AFA back, and hopefully signing D Wright and we still get a shooter as well. AFA will fit in perfectly, all he has 2 do now is play D, rebound, and run the floor. With all the ball handlers we have now he wont have to dribble much at all, he can just be a slasher.
To be honest I think they should go after Josh Smith, he can play 3/4/5 depending on the situation. He would make this team better and ready to make a run. He is at he prime of his career and loads of playoff experience.
1 year, 5 months ago on Pelicans Beat: Looking at Tyreke, Iggy, Gordon, and Predicting How This Whole Thing Plays Out
If you look at the Saints offense, it wouldn't be hard to say that Benson wants a team that can run and score. The offensive goal of that Saints' is to put up points at least 40. So I think there will be a lot of running this season. FINALLY!!!
1 year, 5 months ago on In the NO Podcast Episode 142: The New Orleans Pelicans Free Agency Targets
I'm down with the Pels signing Clark. He would have a breakout season and he played with Ryan Anderson in Orlando.

1 year, 5 months ago on In the NO Podcast Episode 141: Pelicans trade for Jrue Holiday during NBA Draft
I can believe that Mario Chalmers is nowhere close to being a top tier point guard. What was the last time to win a championship with a point guard, the Lakers. You just need a point to get into the offense, penetrate and don't turn the ball over. Scorers win championships.
1 year, 5 months ago on Pelicans Beat: 5-on-5 about Jrue, the 2014 pick, Vasquez, and Nerlens Noel
@chiefyoungblood @revdrbflow I agree his PER is from when he was with the sixers. He is a Pelican now, that's all that matters to me.
1 year, 5 months ago on New Orleans Pelicans Make Blockbuster Trade for All-Star Jrue Holiday
@revdrbflow @Major504 Just think about now Vasquez developed this past season 2nd in MOP. Now think about a more athletic player developing in that same system, that has sent players all over the NBA in a starting or supporting role on playoff teams. And there are decent SFs we can get and Cs. Free agents, trades, sign and trade. Small piece to a outstanding puzzle.
@revdrbflow @Major504 I guess you expect a losing season again? And yes I think it was worth it to me. It's a protected pick, so when we make the playoffs that pick won't matter much.
@Clef504 They gave it up because Pels plan on being in the playoffs and I can see that happening the more this off season comes together. You would rather have 19 yr old project over a 23 yr old all star. Where they do that at?
1 year, 5 months ago on New Orleans Pelicans 2013 Draft
This trade is about defense. Vasquez can't play defense, he isn't quick nor does he have a 6'7 wingspan. I love Vasquez, but defense wins championships.
@revdrbflow Defensive upgrade. I will take that.
I wanted them to traded for a young vet and we got an all-star point guard with a crazy wingspan for his size. Noel was nice but this is much better, no adjustments to the NBA game with this pick trade.
Burke reminds me of Jameer Nelson and I and excited about that. He is a good player just not what the Pels need. If we they can't get Porter, Dipo, Len, or McLemore I said trade away next yearrs 1st round pick to. I'm down for adding experience over youth.
1 year, 5 months ago on In the NO Podcast Episode 140, Part 1: NBA Draft Big Boards for the Pelicans
@Caffeinedisaster I have two words for you Kevin Durant. I thought he was too skinny and would get pushed around but as we all have learned, he can handle himself on the court. Not saying Porter will be that caliber of player but he has a high basketball IQ for a 20 yr old guy. So I think his weight won't be that much of an issue.
