re: Pelicans Wishlist: Luol Deng - LSUhornet17
I think he turned down something like 3 yrs / 30mil from Chicago. We certainly can't give him more than that, and I don't see a reason he'd take less to play here. Even if we had the type of money he's looking for, would you really want to pay a guy who can't shoot 9-10mil a year when he is 32 or 33...

re: Jimmy Smith (Times Pic) bringing the heat on Demps - LSUhornet17
Some of you might enjoy. I couldn't resist commenting on that piece of garbage post: Jimmy Smith is apparently a professional NBA beat writer who does not know that NBA contracts are guaranteed. Great job here. Avery Johnson last coached a competitive team when his #1 seeded Mavs lost to the #8 ...

re: AD and Monty - LSUhornet17
This is the only thing I can think of that gives me pause with getting rid of Monty. Not sure if it's enough to keep in around, given his weaknesses, but the team (minus Tyreke maybe?) seem to buy in on him. Firing Monty and not hitting a home run on his replacement would be disastrous. It's really ...

re: Earl Clark Waived - LSUhornet17
I believe we can sign someone into the Disabled Player Exception we got for Ryan being out for the season, up to half of Ryan's salary. So, we have about $4 million (and a roster spot) to work with if we want to sign someone for the rest of the year. ...

New Orleans Arena soon to be Smoothie King Center? - LSUhornet17
So I have a source saying the naming rights deal is basically done and Smoothie King is the buyer. How do y'all feel about the Smoothie King Center? I don't hate it. Better than magic bracelets. Won't be announced until close to All-Star weekend. ...

re: NBA coaches make their money in the last 5 mins of games. - LSUhornet17
Winning or losing close games over a meaningful sample size basically amounts to luck. Rick Adelman is highly regarded around the league and the Wolves have an awful record in close games this year. If this is a result of last night's game, he got Miller (a good 3P shooter) an open look from 3 to...

re: this f****** C position - AD and ryno aren't a good fit - LSUhornet17
Greg Monroe would totally shore up the defensive problems on this team. I mean his current frontcourt tandem just held perennial MVP candidate Jason Smith to 22 points and 16 boards. Easy to overreact after one game. Deandre Jordan is terrible, and was allowed to mug our guys in the paint all gam...

re: Opinions About "Gear" - LSUhornet17
B&G had a really poor selection last time I was there (about 3 weeks ago). Academy was even worse and I used to pick up a decent amount of Hornets gear there for good prices. NBA.com store just added a few new items, including more jerseys. Pelicans store has a pretty good selection, but are definit...

re: Can the Monty defenders answer.. - LSUhornet17
This entire thread is coherent and sensible. Not sure how that happened, but well done. I think there are some pretty clear systemic issues on both sides of the ball. Ryno will fix some of the offensive ones, but the defense is going to be harder to turn around. Monty appears to be well liked and re...

re: Despite the loss the team played better than I expected - LSUhornet17
If Onuaku can prove he doesn't have hands of stone, I'd much rather him than Thomas. Honestly I'd rather anyone than Thomas. He has almost no skills and is not nearly big enough to play the 4 or the 5. Throwing him out there for a few minutes at SF to mess things up is one thing, but there is absolu...

re: Man, my take from last night's game is that we're just a SF away - LSUhornet17
You'd want more offensively from Aminu than what he gave last night, but he was okay. He played Paul George pretty close, there was just no much he could do. He was certainly not the biggest weakness on this team last night. With Anderson out, this team only has two legit NBA big men. Smith has got ...

It was really awesome to see all the Pelicans gear last night. I really wasn't expecting it. Great to see. Again though, these prices aren't due to the rebrand or anything like that.

I'd chalk it up to that, but like I said, this is not a new practice. The jersey/gear prices were still around 30-40% higher last year even when everyone knew we were changing names after the season. Replica Davis/Rivers jerseys were over $100 during last season....

Ridiculous Markup at Pelicans Store - LSUhornet17
Not sure how many have noticed this, but the prices being charged by the Pelicans team store are outrageously overpriced, and not in the way that all official gear is overpriced. I mean that the Pelicans are charging well over what the NBA itself charges for the exact same product. A t-shirt I saw a...
