| 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...

It might sound crazy, but what about Aliens? Not the illegal ones, but possible visitors from other planets.

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..

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.. ...

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 ...

Hawks trade away Horford and Teague
Pacers trade away Green, Augustin and We...
| Pelicans Talk|| Davis is not a Center.. yet - brmark70816 on 12/26/12 at 11:12 am|
I know it's still way early in the season, but I have to admit that I was wrong.. A. Davis is not a Center. He is just too small (weight wise) to hold the pivot and establish position. It might come in a few years, but he is very thinly built and it doesn't look like he can hold a lot of bulk. When ...
| Pelicans Talk|| Wizards/Hornets.. similarities - brmark70816 on 12/23/12 at 4:53 am|
I was looking at the Wizards tonight and I was struck with how similar to the Hornets they are right now.

What is the worst first 20 game stretch that a team that made the playoffs has had? I've tried to search, but couldn't find a good answer.
The Hornets are 4-11 right now. Over the next 5 games they play the Bucks, Lakers, Griz, Heat and Wiz (total of 20 games). I'm guessing, at best, they go 2-3...
| Pelicans Talk|| Why don't the Hornets have more players? - brmark70816 on 11/25/12 at 6:25 pm|
I've looked at the roster and they only have 13 players listed (http://www.nba.com/hornets/roster/2012). I thought you could have 15 signed, but only dress 12. With the injuries to Davis and Smith, they now have no back-up Center. So Anderson will have to back-up Lopez and Thomas will get a bunch of...

I always wondered why the academies don't play in a lower division in football (like Harvard). I hate watching them get blown out against major schools and there is no reason for them to play at the highest level. They don't need the money, players are hard to find and they have to change rules for ...

With the Bulls pretty much out of the top spot in the East, I was trying to figure how the standings will shake out. Miami is the best team, but they tend to cruise through the regular season and might have a bit of a championship hangover. Imo, Indy, Atlanta and Orlando have taken steps back. So th...
| Pelicans Talk|| Jonny Flynn? - brmark70816 on 8/12/12 at 2:16 am|
The team still hasn't picked up a pure point yet and the pickings are very slim. I know they are sold on Vasquez and Rivers, but if one gets injured or struggles the whole team suffers. Why not take a flier on a talented guy, Jonny Flynn, that might still turn it around. He'd be cheap and is still p...

The greatest turnaround in NBA history is 42 games by the 2008 Celtics. Last season, the Bobcats only managed 7 wins. There is no doubt they will win more games next year. So I'm wondering how many more games will they win?
