The Pelicans played zero games this season with their full roster


A conversation we were having in the Jrue/Tyreke thread got me looking at our rotations and minutes this year.

Holiday, Gordon, Evans, Anderson, and Davis were on the court 12 games together this year.

If you count games that Davis, Anderson, and Gordon left early due to injury, that group played 9 full games together this year.

If you count Jason Smith's injury, the core group played 7 "healthy" games together all year.

If we count Greg Steimsma's injury right before Ryan Anderson made his season debut, the full team never played a game together this season.

Granted, Steimsma probably shouldn't be count as an NBA player, but you get the point.

Basically, the contributing roster played 7 full games together this season.

Those games were the stretch from November 16-29. And December 18 at the Clippers.

Top 5 played 14 games together, finishing with a 9-5 record (.643%). You're dumb to act like Stiemsma was a "crucial" part of team's core. But when our "finishing five" were in the team didn't suck. Jason smith injury was huge in its own right though. Killed any chance of recovery and helped sink this season quicker than we'd have liked

In the Pelicans 12 year history in NOLA, there's been maybe 1 season where somebody important (or somebodies plural) didn't get hurt. I implore you to go through the record books and discover this tragedy for yourself

Without looking back, I'm pretty sure eyeran made it clear that Steimsma shouldn't be counted.

Didn't read second sentence on GS, but based on this quote my comments are valid. I stand by them you semantic-arguing fricks

I think something is wrong with the court at the SKC.

They can certainly start by taking notes on how Phoenix conditions players.

Yeah a of people dont realize this.

Our best player is AD, and he played like a star this year. But, after that its Holiday, then Anderson. I dont care what team it is, if you lose 2 of your top 3 players for more than half the season it wont be a good season.

not if it happened to their team. the amount of injuries this year for our team were absurd. no team could've succeeded with what we had to deal with

re: The Pelicans played zero games this season with their full roster


the Steamboat was brought in here to be a factor off the bench... so OP is valid

I see a thread like this as looking into the expected roster when the season started... the fact that he didn't pan out other than as a man w/ 6 fouls and could get them shouldn't invalidate the OP's point

I'm glad w/ some of the stuff we've seen from the guys who have come in and played the injured guys minutes

gonna jack the thread and make it forward looking... assuming we lose our 1st rd draft pick to Philly in the Jrue trade... what do you want our line-up to look like next season?

find a way to get rid of EG, AFA & BR so it's

Holiday
Evans
Ryno
AD
Smitty

Rivers
Morrow
Babbitt
Miller
Withey/Ajinca

find a true C in FA to start or see how Frenchie and Withey develop over the summer (esp helping them build muscle along w/ skills)

what else do you want to see the team do in the offseason?
