We can at least agree that we do have a chance though, correct?
Keep in mind, Tyreke went 2-9 with 4 points in 27 minutes last
night. We DEFINITELY have a chance for the ole goose egg. ...

March 3rd, 4th, & 7th will answer whether or not we keep the pick…
we play Sacramento, L.A., & Milwaukee..hate to say it but we've got
to go 0-3 to have a legit chance at keeping it....
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Tyreke Needs Shooters - SHMILL on 2/25/14 at 3:41 pm|
Engage the Tank?
Sadly, its the only hope to salvage this season. Add an Aaron Gordon or Jabari Parker and suddenly things look a little brighter..
And for those who don't think its possible, I bet if you don't win another game this year, we keep the pick.
ENGAGE for the long-term. Its al...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Why it's not time to panic. - SHMILL on 2/25/14 at 8:55 am|
I think some people (myself) are just bummed that we have no draft pick in the upcoming draft as well as no playoffs AND we suck. I understand why we don't have the pick but it's still a bummer.
Is it possible to still keep our pick this year? Also, if you're part of the management team this mo...

Well I haven't seen where they said they'd match a max offer. There's speculations that they would, but nothing concrete. I'm just saying it would be nice to have the ability/assets to get him or someone like him who is a true center.
But no one wants our EG/Tyreke shite contracts and we don't hav...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Pels trying to trade for asik - SHMILL on 2/19/14 at 2:41 pm|
What is a chicken little? And don't get mad bc you're just now realizing Tyreke stinks at shooting (fact) and he has a never-ending ankle injury (per your source).
And no one is hoping for the demise of our favorite team; however, we do hope for the better management of the teams money, evaluat...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Pels trying to trade for asik - SHMILL on 2/19/14 at 2:10 pm|
Thanks to you as well for MCW and Burke's rookie shooting stats through half the season. Also, the point I was trying to make (seeing as those stats are pretty similar) is that Holiday makes 11 million f*cking dollars a year and MCW and Burke do not. However, you have now shown that their producti...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Pels trying to trade for asik - SHMILL on 2/19/14 at 2:07 pm|
Wiggins was hyped more than Parker for sure. Parker has been beasting as of late and pretty much all year. The guy is a complete basketball player who is going to be an All-Star. And thanks for MCW's rookie stats for a handful of games...28.7% from 3 is still better than our 11mil/year sixth man ...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Pels trying to trade for asik - SHMILL on 2/19/14 at 1:16 pm|
Dude. I doubt we select Noel if we weren't going to trade him. So right there, you're off base already. We would've selected a point guard bc that's what we were after all along whether it be by trade to get Holiday (which was to select Noel FOR Philly) or by keeping the pick and selecting either MC...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Pels trying to trade for asik - SHMILL on 2/19/14 at 12:59 pm|
Yeaa 11 mil AND a first round pick..don't forget that gem.
And the point is, you didn't HAVE to do it. That's how you get yourself in this clusterf*ck with no way out. No cash. No playoffs. No draft pick in arguably one of the best draft classes EVER. Just sayin.....
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Pels trying to trade for asik - SHMILL on 2/19/14 at 12:38 pm|
You think Jabari is overrated? Good God.
MCW can't shoot so we don't want him? Huh? He's 19ish years old. Oh and I thought I saw a stat where our 11 million dollar SIXTH man shoots 14% from beyond the arch...that sir, is absolutely terrible.
And not getting Drummond with the 10th pick is not...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Pels trying to trade for asik - SHMILL on 2/19/14 at 11:36 am|
Oh yes. Yes it is. It's the product of patience coupled with having a vision as to where you want to be in 2 years.
However, it's NOT the result of "WIN NOW" attitude. Just absolutely incredible how dumb some of these decisions have been lately.
You got yourself out of mediocrity and d...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Pels trying to trade for asik - SHMILL on 2/19/14 at 10:27 am|
We were so close to having what we wanted. Instead, we blew our load on a guard who plays SF for us (i think), a PG who is expensive when we could've just drafted one (MCW, Burke), and traded away our first round pick in the process while also strapping ourselves with horrible contracts that NO ONE...

| Pelicans Talk|| Harrison Barnes? - SHMILL on 2/7/14 at 10:53 am|
Would you want him? He plays the 3, plays D, can score the ball, on a rookie contract, and is fighting for playing time. His name keeps coming up in trade rumors.
He would fill the need at the 3 for us and he'd be another young piece to pair with AD. If he gets more minutes, maybe he would d...

Yep, it's like he's hiding for some reason. I don't get it either. But it definitely doesn't help that the offense is so basic, tough to get him involved. But man, he's incredibly quick and can get the rim every frickin time if he wants...Monty has got to notice this, right?! ...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: One Simple Adjustment Wins This Game - SHMILL on 1/13/14 at 10:40 pm|
I agree with all of this. The moment Roberts came in and Rivers went to the 2 along with EG in the game, all was lost from there. Rivers is perfect at the PG bc like you said, he gets to the lane with ease whenever he wants....

For the record, I agreed with you the whole time. I got aggravated after the first few pages from those who just don't understand basketball so I had to stop reading. This team was screwed from the beginning. EG is frickin turrible and no one will trade for him (so far). Tyreke is not worth 11mil a ...

4yrs @ 44 mil for Evans
I know its more money, but who could we have done without to find the extra money to cover Jeffers...

Greedy on offense. Check downs were open allll night. Gotta put it on Mett...hate to say it but after the first int, gotta take what's there and not force it down field. It's obvious now but it's football, shite happens. Especially in the SEC. ...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Plea to the Monty haters - SHMILL on 12/19/13 at 2:44 pm|
I'm not trying to start and argument but only give my opinion of the team which ultimately falls on the coach (which sucks bc i do like Monty, i think he's a great players coach and he has the respect of his players)..however,
We are very inconsistent on the offensive side of the ball…and I'm not...
