| Pelicans Talk|| re: Pelicans inquired about Jammer Nelson - Mr. West on 7/3/14 at 8:14 am|
He could probably replicate 75% of what Gordon gives us at about a fifth the price. Could be great value if he's looking more for a defined role, play time and a bit more money over a ring....

| Pelicans Talk|| re: When was the last time a team bought a 1st round pick? - Mr. West on 5/28/14 at 9:17 pm|
It can still be done, however not many teams are sellers. There is a cap of about 2 or 3 million you can spend on draft picks to keep the NY's of the league from buying ten or so and teams value young talent over that amount generally. A second rounder could be realistically bought, especially consi...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Would you prefer Asik or Monroe next to AD? - Mr. West on 5/24/14 at 10:24 am|
Monroe would be like getting ice cream after a 3 course meal. Never a bad thing, but a luxury. He'd be our 4th or 3rd option on offense.
Asik would be like getting a burger after not eating in 24 hours. He wouldn't be the answer to all our defensive problems but he'd certainly help much more than...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: roster who to keep - Mr. West on 4/19/14 at 8:17 pm|
Keep Davis, Jrue, Evans, Anderson, Withey, Rivers, Ajinca, Morrow and perhaps Babbit and Miller if they come as cheap as the cap allows.
The rest can leave....

| Pelicans Talk|| re: You can choose one of these - Mr. West on 3/18/14 at 7:20 pm|
Potential =/= will be. He is a scorer who plays similar. Also I'm not exactly a big name exclaiming this, I don't think it will set up too much disappointment lol....
| Pelicans Talk|| re: You can choose one of these - Mr. West on 3/18/14 at 6:43 pm|
By no means would I be against Galo. Just Parker has star potential. If we could pull off the Gordon for Galo trade without it costing us Parker I'd be all over it. ...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: You can choose one of these - Mr. West on 3/18/14 at 6:09 pm|
Jabari has Melo like potential and Galinari is a rock solid starter when he isn't coming off knee surgery. Jabari would be on a rookie deal and Galinari has a nice hefty salary. ...

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. ...
