[quote]@ryenarussillo: I realize Tyreke went off in the 4th quarter, but I think it's a bad habit for New Orleans to run their offense this way.[/quote]
I agree with this. I thought we got way too stagnant in the fourth quarter last night. It worked because we hit shots, but as we've seen, we c...

It's actually funny because I think Gordon was really helping Tyreke this year. He took a backseat and became a workman like defender and basically a spot up shooter. Granted, it took about 8 games for him to begin to figure it out but it was allowing Tyreke to do what he did best.
Now, with Riv...

The Tyreke signing is going to be the move that costs Dell his job. I liked, and understood the move for Jrue. We had just spent a season getting torched in fourth quarters by opposing point guards, and Jrue was a young and proven defender that we could pair with AD.
The Tyreke signing made no s...

It looked like maybe his right shoulder at first glance but he is actually clutching his left shoulder and then he uses his right shoulder to lower himself to the ground. That is why I think left....
| Pelicans Talk|| re: EG out indefinitly??? - ThePistol on 11/24/14 at 3:22 pm|
That was the first time I saw the play. Thanks for posting. It really doesn't look like much contact, but shoulder subluxations/separations can be funny like that.
The bad news it that there is structural damage to his labrum. The labrum is a ring of cartilage like material that lines the "soc...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Eric Gordon's Injury - ThePistol on 11/23/14 at 7:16 pm|
I am not so sure how accurate his research is. Drew Brees' injury was bad because he had almost a 360* detachment/tear of his glenoid labrum. A subluxation normally refers to an incident in which you do not have a complete separation of the shoulder. Some people have subluxations with no structu...

This is kind of my point. I don't think many people on here have made up their mind on Gordon because of basketball data but because of all the other issues. I'm not the biggest fan of the guy either, but as a basketball player he has ...

[quote]In this division the time is NOW.[/quote]
You don't make huge changes after 7 games in an 82 game season when you are above .500. The thing that scares me is we have multiple years of data on Gordon and Rivers and so far their numbers just don't match their history. If at Christmas time ...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Austin Rivers should start over Eric Gordon - ThePistol on 11/13/14 at 12:47 pm|
So you make this thread the game after he starts the game with 5 assists on about 8 touches in the first quarter? Look, I get it, no one likes Gordon. He is horrendously overpaid. To put it lightly, he can't throw the ball in the ocean right now. Having said all of that, I really think part of h...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: NegaPel time: What was negative about last night? - ThePistol on 10/29/14 at 2:31 pm|
We didn't shoot the ball well last night. Other than that, I though the guards played fine. Jrue and Gordon played very good on the ball defense.
My biggest concern was watching Tyreke guard Tobias Harris. Harris lost Reke more than a few times. He will be fine offensively, but defensively ...

| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Cole Kelly QB Teurlings the next Mett? - ThePistol on 10/20/14 at 4:04 pm|
I don't understand why people are more impressed with a guy throwing in shorts with no rush than a guy in a game with defenders coming at him. If he can fit a ball into a window for a 5'10" receiver with a 27" vertical, what makes you think he can't hit a 6'2" kid with a 38" vertical?
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Cole Kelly QB Teurlings the next Mett? - ThePistol on 10/20/14 at 3:26 pm|
Let's bet that your position on this kid completely changes once he gets to camps next summer and the recruiting services change your opinion.
Also, can you please list the 10 schools better than STM going into last Friday night. (STM lost their top 3 offensive players ...

Russillo was talking the whole league. He said that if all players in the league were available for a re-draft, and you were drafting for the next five years, AD would go third overall behind LeBron and Durant. SVP agreed.
It had nothing to do with AD's draft. Lillard is not even in this type...
