re: Holiday for Trey Burke and picks rumor - TigerinATL
If you have Tyreke you need superior defenders at the other guard/wing spots. Cole is good but lacks the size to be as versatile as Holiday. He may be able to harass Curry but won't be slowing down Thompson much. ...

re: Holiday for Trey Burke and picks rumor - TigerinATL
[quote]Did we watch what Evans did running the point with holiday out? [/quote] We really kind of need them both. Holiday just doesn't attack enough. Looking at all 3 of our guards compared to Dragic made the Pels 3 look pretty bad the way nobody can finish at the rim. It'd be interesting to ...

re: Holiday for Trey Burke and picks rumor - TigerinATL
Cole's a bit odd in that I think he's a great bench player but don't think of him as a fringe starter. Maybe it's because we already have Jrue and I see him as a lesser version of Holiday....

We cannot create cap space by trading 1 player - TigerinATL
I keep seeing people with the mistaken impression that we can trade Holiday or Evans or Ryno and then have their salary available in cap space. That's not how it works. That's not how any of this works. To have cap space you have to be below the cap, not just with current contracts but also with ...

re: Crazy Ideas about Draft moves for Pels - TigerinATL
[quote]He can't play defense[/quote] We're talking about replacing Tyreke and Gordon. Also, if you are able to pull in a 3 and D wing like Batum or even Wilson Chandler, you'd almost always be able to hide him on the 3rd worst perimeter player. [quote]nearly 30[/quote] This is the biggest ...

re: Holiday for Trey Burke and picks rumor - TigerinATL
[quote]He ain't leaving Miami for Nola anyway.[/quote] If he's hell bent on big market then no. But his peak year came playing next to Bledsoe, a 3 and D guard like Holiday, AD is considered the next great player which means playing with him will probably be a much easier path to a ring than any...

re: Crazy Ideas about Draft moves for Pels - TigerinATL
[quote]You'd have to really convince me about dragic. [/quote] What's the primary deficiency of all 3 of our combo guards? Finishing at the rim. He's got a career finishing rate of 67.2% within 3 feet. All of our guards are under 60% for their careers and it's even better than the peak years ...

re: Holiday for Trey Burke and picks rumor - TigerinATL
You people really over value mid 1sts. Not all 1sts are equal. Sure you might get a Rudy Gobert but you are more likely to get an Austin Rivers. Does turning a starting guard into a backup guard and 2 Rivers' sound like a good deal?...

re: Holiday for Trey Burke and picks rumor - TigerinATL
Holiday not needing a new procedure this offseason has me hopeful that the screw they removed was the problem. It seems like we'd have gotten different answers or reports of going to new doctors if they didn't feel it was healing properly....

re: Crazy Ideas about Draft moves for Pels - TigerinATL
On it's own yes, and with Holiday's health concerns trading Tyreke for anything seems questionable. But what if it's part of a bigger move? For instance the Pels are one of the team's recently said to have interest in Dragic. Say you trade Tyreke for a 1st which you bundle with Gordon for something...

The Bird Writes has a few good articles up on JVG. One specifically addresses pace and his adoption of the 3 point shot. [quote]The 0.290 3PAr the Rockets put up in Van Gundy's final season would rank 11th (and much higher than the Pelicans 0.233) during the past season. This is important as all...

re: Jeff Van Gundy expresses interest in Pels HC job - TigerinATL
I think the "under consideration" part is new, although not unexpected since it's probably a wide search at this point. And every coach should be interested in the job, Superstars make coaches, not the other way around....
