I got my Lindy's annual last week and wanted to share what it had to say about the Pelicans. I could not find a link online, so I'll just type out most of it (it's going to be long). I like Lindy's because they rate each position (from 5.0 to 10.0) then rank each team by their numerical value. Here ...

I haven't seen a thread dedicated to rumors coming out before the draft. There are tons of rumors out there and it's fun to think about some of them happening..
The newest one I just saw was Utah offered Cleveland D. Favors, Alec Burks and the #5 pick for the #1 pick and J. Jack..
I know they...

Has anyone seen it yet? I'm going later today and I'm hoping it's as good as the 1st one. It scoring an 80 so far on RT (not that I usually trust that site). Nola.com gave it a decent review as well.. http://www.nola.com/movies/index.ssf/2014/04/the_raid_2_movie_review_fast-f.html

| Pelicans Talk|| Pelicans have the NBA's 3rd highest paid backcourt - brmark70816 on 1/26/14 at 1:17 pm|
I was looking through NBA salaries, did the math and realized how highly paid the Pelicans back court is..
The Lakers and Brooklyn are around 50M each. Kobe and Nash make close to 40M as a co...
| More Sports Board|| Florida State Center/Basketball player - brmark70816 on 11/29/13 at 8:06 pm|
Just watching the Florida State/Florida game and this guy Ojo is massive. A true 7 ft, 300 lb center. He's not that great, but hasn't been basketball very long. Just weird to see a real Center anymore..
I updated to avoid the confusion.. ...
| Pelicans Talk|| The age factor - brmark70816 on 11/2/13 at 2:19 am|
I know it takes time and I'm not saying that this team won't be good. But will everybody stop saying how young this team is? One guy just said that the team is made up of 20-23 year old guys. Another said we are the youngest team in the league. That just isn't right (we are the 4th youngest). The "c...
| Movie/TV Board|| Two and half men question - brmark70816 on 9/15/13 at 4:37 pm|
Is Alan still a Chiropractor? They haven't mentioned it on the show in years, so I'm wondering if he is unemployed now. Which would be why he is always so broke. Otherwise that wouldn't make any sense. He has no bills and never has any money.. ...
| Pelicans Talk|| Scoring distribution - brmark70816 on 7/29/13 at 1:07 pm|
After looking through this past seasons team stats, I noticed that only 4 teams had 3 guys score at least 15+ppg (Brooklyn, Clippers, GS and Miami). That is the most across the league. So it got me thinking that we have 5 guys that are projected to score 15+ppg. Is that possible? If it isn't, who's ...

| Movie/TV Board|| Banshee - brmark70816 on 6/23/13 at 10:42 am|
I looked and didn't see anyone else talking about this show. But I watched the whole 1st season in the past two days. Totally far fetched, but a great action series. The fight with Hood vs. the MMA guy was just awesome (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqRPaucl8r4). Maybe the best fight scene I have s...

| Pelicans Talk|| Is PG really a need? - brmark70816 on 5/12/13 at 10:18 am|
I've gone back and forth on this, but the more I think about it the more I like the team's current PG group (Vasquez/Rivers/Roberts). Vasquez is a solid starter that could expand his game a bit. Rivers is an up and comer that could also play a bit of SG, gives the team some flexibility. Roberts is a...
| Pelicans Talk|| Anderson the enigma - brmark70816 on 4/27/13 at 9:07 pm|
I have been thinking this over for awhile and I still can't understand the devotion that Ryan Anderson gets or why people are so opposed to trading him away. While he is a very unique and skilled player, he is also very limited and plays the same position as the future of the franchise. For example,...
| Pelicans Talk|| Draft position - brmark70816 on 3/31/13 at 4:20 am|
I know the team is supposed to be in tank mode right now, but they haven't been playing that bad (4-6 in the last 10). The team has 9 games left and all the other teams have 9-10 games left as well. So where do they end up? They would be 6th without the lottery, but if they keep winning or another t...

Watching it now, Why was Rachel Dawes such a bitch to Bruce? He would totally be justified to want to kill the guy that killed his parents..
Also, Wayne is worth billions. He is walking around without a body guard and some mafia thug has him roughed up? Why would he do that. Wayne could have hir...

It might sound crazy, but what about Aliens? Not the illegal ones, but possible visitors from other planets. Supposedly the government has been hiding information for decades and will not de-classify it. How much would this change everything? If we knew we weren't alone. If we accepted new technolog...
| Movie/TV Board|| Best episode of Clone Wars ever.. - brmark70816 on 2/3/13 at 7:37 am|
I just finally saw this weeks Clone Wars and was blown away. This season has really sucked until the new story line (Maul and Mandalor) and it has really kicked up a notch. I don't know how many more seasons are left (maybe one). But watching the Emperor mess everybody up was all worth it..
| Pelicans Talk|| Gordon's health/status - brmark70816 on 2/2/13 at 9:20 am|
When will Gordon be back to 100%? He's been back for over a month and played in 15 games. I'm pretty sure he isn't playing today due to the back-to-back games. So I'm just curious how long it'll be until he is in "game shape" and ready to go every game.. ...
| More Sports Board|| Was Christian Laettner a bust? - brmark70816 on 1/29/13 at 9:17 am|
I was debating with a guy at work that said that Laettner was a huge NBA bust. I knew he was in the league a long time and had some really good years, but was never a star and it's tough when you are drafted after HOF's (Shaq and Zo). Since he is one of the greatest college players of all time, was ...
