I hated him until he took ownership of the Hornets/Pelicans.
The Hurricane Katrina season fiasco was hard to forget about.
as far as him being the best possible owner for the Pelicans... ehhh, I don't know.
I really like that he brought in Loomis to work salary cap magic, but Gary Chouest was m...

| Pelicans Talk|| re: Austin Rivers ready to Break Out - Iamnick on 10/7/13 at 12:22 pm|
I work with a lot of young kids as a shooting coach.
Jump shots and free throws are two totally different animals.
A lot of kids shoot them the same way, which is a problem. Jump shots come from the legs. For free-throws, you gotta adjust to the lack of legs and use a little more arm strength.

| Pelicans Talk|| re: Austin Rivers ready to Break Out - Iamnick on 10/7/13 at 12:13 pm|
How can someone paid millions of dollars to play basketball as his primary job... a shooter, at that... be so bad at shooting free-throws?
I'm all for Rivers becoming a very good player. I was ecstatic when we got him, because I believed he was the best "sure thing" after the top 5 in that draft ...

I hate Duke (notice the logo near my name).
I hated this kid when he was at Duke...
...but he's who I wanted at the 10th pick, by far. I figured he was the "can't miss" prospect because of his bloodlines.
He's definitely improved, but what scares me now is how bad he's been shooting.

People need to give up the whole "Danny Granger for Eric Gordon" trade idea.
You don't like Eric Gordon's injuries?
Well, Danny Granger played in only 5 games last season.
Danny Granger is 30 years old
Eric Gordon is 24 years old
what would you prefer?
