Too long to copy and paste, but I like their Best Case Scenario:
Yes, really. Davis has struggled to transform his raw...

| Tech Board|| Apple Pay - TigerinATL on 9/10/14 at 9:12 am|
The Verge has a video of using Apple Pay IRL and it honestly doesn't seem any more convenient than a credit card. It's more secure than a credit card, and once we switch to chip and pin in October 2015, it might be more convenient, but I was a little surprised at how long the transaction took. The...

TiVo has a new $50 box aimed at cord cutters that lets you DVR Over The Air broadcasts and gives you access to streaming services like NetFlix. The one catch is that you have to pay $15 per month for the DVR service. Would this really interest cord cutters? Most OTA content is available on HuluPl...

Now that it's obvious how great Anthony Davis is now, rather than how great he might become, the talk is no longer of losing trades, but of how good these young veterans can be next to Davis.

| Pelicans Talk|| Are we really planning/hoping to target a big money SF in 2015? - TigerinATL on 8/7/14 at 11:35 am|
I'm not sure I see a viable big money target considering our lack of trade assets. Assuming no Gordon via opt out or trade, and cutting all of our scrubs we could get to about $11 million in cap space if the cap rises to $67 million as expected. You can get to about $13.5 if you dump Rivers too. ...
