If you have an hour a day and NBATV then the Starters is a show that is entertaining to watch and covers the NBA. If no NBATV, it also comes in podcast versions on Itunes and here [link=(http://thestarters.nba.com/)]LINK[/link]

| Pelicans Talk|| re: Do you guys dislike Anthony Morrow's game? - Mr. West on 1/14/14 at 4:45 pm|
He is a greeeeaaaaat shooter. Fantastic at it. However he brings nothing else to the game. Darius Miller is stealing his minutes as a good shooter who is an ok defender and passer, and deservedly so.
Sometimes you will hear a guy describe someone like Anderson as a one trick pony. Morrow really i...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: EJ returns tonight vs Minnesota! - Mr. West on 1/1/14 at 2:21 pm|
Most Gordon's minutes get split up between Rivers/Roberts/Morrow. And Gordon is better than those guys. That's not arguable. ...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: this f****** C position - AD and ryno aren't a good fit - Mr. West on 12/19/13 at 10:32 pm|
First and third columns are our percentage of shots that draw free throws and field goal percentage within 3 feet of the goal without Anderson. The second and fourth column are the same with Anderson on the floor.
Our slashers shoot significantly higher percentage and get fouled a good bit more w...

| Pelicans Talk|| re: this f****** C position - AD and ryno aren't a good fit - Mr. West on 12/19/13 at 8:16 am|
A hint to live by when following the NBA: If your reasoning for wanting to ship a piece of the core off is based of one fricking game, chill the frick out. Especially when said core is all 25 and under.
Ryno and AD give up some size but get rid of Ryno and watch how Jrue (and everyone else) sett...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Can Pierre Jackson reach a ceiling similar to Isaiah Thomas from SAC? - Mr. West on 12/10/13 at 6:19 pm|
Not exactly 3 minutes :lol: More like what Nate Robinson brings. He's not the true backup PG, Andre Miller really is. You just put Nate in and hope he gets hot and if he's ice cold he gets less minutes. Sorry for joking haha....
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Can Pierre Jackson reach a ceiling similar to Isaiah Thomas from SAC? - Mr. West on 12/10/13 at 10:07 am|
If we could turn a 2nd round pick throw in into a solid scorer off the bench guy then I'd be thrilled. I think Jackson could be something like a hot or cold kid that isn't your true backup really, but you give him about 3 minutes and see if his shot is falling. If it is you ride with him, if not the...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: With Davis out, would y'all be against having Aminu start at PF? - Mr. West on 12/2/13 at 9:14 am|
I honestly think our best chance to keep a solid record until Davis returns is to start Aminu and Anderson at the 3/4 and bring Reke off the bench. ...

Getting steals, rebounds and playing defense just like last year but he's making a solid amount of jumpers now. I love the kid....

| Pelicans Talk|| re: Suns to trade Gortat to Wiz for Okafor and then buy him out. - Mr. West on 10/26/13 at 3:23 pm|
Okafor at 14 mil is disgusting. Okafor at 4 to 6 mil and starting on this team? Lovely. Seriously, all he does is rebound and defend the rim which was bad for our Paul teams. But what has everyone been ripping the Steamer for? Exactly what Oak brings....

Preseason is about backups trying to make teams and starters getting a little bit of work in before the season starts. [/quote]

| Pelicans Talk|| re: Zach Lowe on Davis - Mr. West on 10/3/13 at 9:53 pm|
[quote]I don't like Anderson's game. It just doesn't make sense to me and it just blows my mind that so many people praise him, for something that isn't that big of a deal (shooting tons of 3s for an average %). If he actually developed a post game, drove to the basket and hustled on defense, he'd b...

| Pelicans Talk|| re: Your Bold Predictions for the Pelicans 2013-14 Season - Mr. West on 9/4/13 at 10:10 am|
Anthony Davis makes the all star game
Greg, similar to Lopez in that everyone figured he was just a body, has a sort of break out season.
Gordon plays 75+ games
Rivers gets traded :wah:
Aminu has a fairly consistent midrange.

| Pelicans Talk|| re: Interesting Stat from Lowe's Tuesday Column - Mr. West on 8/27/13 at 11:00 am|
The change from Vasquez to Holiday should bump us up a few spots alone. Thats without adding in another year of work to Davis and Aminu, replacing a lot of Roberts and Masons minutes with Reke, and a (hopefully) healthy and motivated Gordon. We really should make a substantial jump on defense IMO....
