| Pelicans Talk|| re: Who is the best defender, AD, Jrue, or Asik? - adono on 12/16/14 at 7:37 pm|
AD is, right now, the best defender on the team...and it's not close. Asik is a rim defender and does a great job at it, but he does not affect the game the AD does. We see the stats with the rebounds and blocks; what we don't see is how times AD forces the other team to alter their defense and shot...

First time ever subscribing to an "on demand" service" and not impressed with the movie selection. I will say that having access to almost all of the HBO series is a major plus.
Just started re-watching all of the "Oz" episodes. I had forgotten just how good that show was.
Any suggestions fro...

His game is still rusty, no doubt, but it's too early to push the panic button. What I'm seeing on the court is that Ryno has been forced to handle an endless number of new schemes and rotations. Williams is changing his game and, finally, develop...

Three things that have to be done at the end of the season (if not sooner):
1. Fire Williams
2. Fire Demps
3. Stretch Eric "Fragile" Gordon
The players have no fear of Williams. You have a top five player in Davis and he continues to be an afterthought in the 4th quarter. Williams says he ha...

It's a good bet Glenn's days are numbered. The Glenn/Maggie hookup has been a total flop. It forced the writers to put Glenn in the "defender" mode and he just can't pull it off. At the same time, it pis...

I've gone back and re-watched the first 8 episodes of this season and came away appreciating Gimple's influence and direction of the show.
Were some of the episode a little drawn out? Maybe a little, but there wasn't the idiotic BS of Rick having visions and playing "Farmer John". It didn't have ...

I've been seeing post by a number of guys on here that Evans needs to go (I'm not one of them) and it got me to thinking what we could get of him. I'm betting there would be a lot of interest out there for a guy who can go to the hoop like Evans can.
Just for the record, I think Evans will settle...
