Xavier always looked great in pregame with his dunks but then the actual game started and he looked like he had no business being on the floor. It shows how bad LA's roster is after Kobe, Pau, and Nash that Xavier is a viable option for them. ...

| Pelicans Talk|| re: How Lazy is Eric Gordon? - ThePistol on 10/9/13 at 1:46 pm|
For me, it's not blind faith. It's simple actually. When healthy, he is a much better basketball player than Rivers and Morrow and he is under contract to play for us. I believe that we will be a MUCH better team if he is healthy. I care about winning and feel him playing gives this roster the b...

I get that he wasn't what anyone was hoping for last year. He was obviously out of shape and wasn't ready to be a leader on a below average team. Despite all of that, he averaged 17 a game and was the team's leading scorer. I don't see why th...

I remember rumors of possibly needing microfracture surgery but then that was refuted. I think those rumors were brought up because no one could figure out why it was taking him so long to return. That is why I said it has been a confusing injury, to say the least. I would say that it was a littl...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Tyreke Interview with Hoopshype - ThePistol on 10/3/13 at 9:16 am|
What injury did he have that has ended careers? He definitely has had one of the more confusing injuries that I can remember, I'll give you that. Whether it be misdiagnosis, shoddy rehab, or lack of an effort on his part, something has not added up. But it seems that he still had a good first step ...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Tyreke Interview with Hoopshype - ThePistol on 10/3/13 at 8:56 am|
I am giving EG one more shot. I hope he has matured mentally and is healthy physically. In the NBA you have to have elite talent and he possesses that, when healthy. I think it is obvious that he still had a lot of maturing to do before he was going to be a leader at this level. That is one of t...

My intramural team in college played most of the girls team at the rec when I was in school. They had Fowles, Johnson, Augustus, De'Trina White, and some other girl I can't remember. We beat them 15-8. We had a 6'5" and 6'7" guy on our team so size was not an issue. I guarded Semoine in that gam...

| Pelicans Talk|| re: What moves do we need to make... - ThePistol on 9/19/13 at 2:21 pm|
The biggest problem with this team is youth and lack of playing together. Davis is our alpha dog and he is only in year 2. It is Jrue and Tyreke's first year with the club. Ryno and EG haven't played a full season together. 7-8 seed is right where we should be with this group and then we assess w...

I was talking strictly of building through the draft and the value of stocking lottery picks in long term success. Lakers didn't draft Kobe, Shaq, or Gasol. In fact, other than Bynum, who did they draft? Spurs drafted their current big three but Manu and Parker weren't lottery picks. They haven'...

The problem with lottery picks is that by the time they are good enough to make a run then you have to pick which ones to keep. Look at OKC, they are the gold standard. I don't know one person who thinks they are better now than they were at this time last year. You can't keep all your lottery pi...
