re: Why won't Monty stagger the guards more? - NOLATX
Throwing my quick two cents into this discussion - I still don't understand why Monty won't even try the Jrue-Tyreke/Gordon-Anderson-AD-Asik lineup out there for spurts. The zone D with that lineup seemed okay in the preseason for periods at a time, and doing so would limit the need for [link=(http:...

re: The Pelicans Most Intriguing Squadron - NOLATX
Agree with that take entirely (and I even think I mentioned somewhere in the column that his height/wingspan gives him the ability to play further off of his man than what would be considered normal for other more typical wing defenders)....

re: The Pelicans Most Intriguing Squadron - NOLATX
The fouling perspective is one I hadn't really considered, mainly because I figured he'd be less likely to pick up fouls on the wings vs. playing defense inside. Fatigue was my bigger concern for him out there....

re: Predict the Pels next big move this offseason - NOLATX
If I'm the Pels, I push for LRMAM as the cap filler w/ Martin. Mbah a Moute is one of the better wing defenders in the league. Not a guy you can give heavy minutes to because he doesn't give you much of anything on offense, but defensively, he is everything we hoped Aminu would turn into. Of course...

re: The worst deal in NBA history? - NOLATX
I'll be the first to admit that I reacted similarly to this column after my first read-through, but I have backed off since then to merely disliking it. Dan Feldman knows his stuff, but he may not have put forth the tone that he meant to display. He is right about the likelihood that the Pelican...

The number of people who fail to recognize this truly is amazing. Even actual radio personalities who "pride themselves" on their sports knowledge.
