re: Possible Upside to Struggles? - corndeaux
[quote]Nothing like a little laziness by the SB Nation national writers on the cap situation this summer: quote: The problem is the Pelicans don't have cap space to play with in the summer and there aren't many tradable assets at this point. Barring a Dell Demps miracle, this is pretty much the...

re: 2 Good New Reads from Pels Blogs - corndeaux
Good link Catch and shoot + PnR #s make me wonder if Holiday is the third leg of the tripod w/ Cousins/Davis. Obviously catch and shoot is a very, very small sample. But I'm not sure how or why you would run a lot of Jrue PnR w/ both Davis and Cousins on the court. Maybe double screen action?...

[quote]They need someone that can run a P&R without dribbling the ball off of their feet[/quote] Right. That's not hard to find in 2017. The issue is defense, shooting, and ability to play off ball. [quote]A SG that can create some like Fournier, or a PG that can shift Holiday to SG like Mills...

2 Good New Reads from Pels Blogs - corndeaux
Thought both of these articles needed their own thread. For those about to jump off a ledge, here's TBW   [link=(http://www.thebirdwrites.com/2017/2/26/14741978/demarcus-cousins-anthony-davis-pelicans-era-needs-time-unrealistic-expectations)]LINK[/link] [quote]Trust can’t be earned in two mo...

re: Possible Upside to Struggles? - corndeaux
[quote]Something like a S&T of Holiday for Bazemore and Hardaway S&T. You still need a PG though, and there aren't many worthwhile targets for an uneven trade. [/quote] Do they need a "PG?" Yes, they need guys who can handle/pass the ball and have some off the bounce juice. I'm not convinced t...

re: Possible Upside to Struggles? - corndeaux
love podcasts for commutes/travel, going for a run, or cooking/chores around the house. sometimes hard to focus on them. especially if im at home and can play on computer, phone, etc. and i only go at 1.3x speed. some people go at 2x speed--- but ones with good discussion are great. definitel...

re: Possible Upside to Struggles? - corndeaux
yeah. Many national guys have had no real reason to pay much attention to the Pels- too many other interesting stories. I do think guys like Lowe, Prada, Duncan, Golliver try to do their due diligence when they talk Pels in a way that Simmons just doesnt much anymore. And if I dont think you eve...

re: Possible Upside to Struggles? - corndeaux
no offense :i'llseemyselfout: feel like i get a lot Pels info here and from reading just about everything BSS and TBW put out. plus, given the state of the team the past couple of years, there's sometimes only so much i can listen to about their sorry state. use the other pods to catch up on l...

re: Possible Upside to Struggles? - corndeaux
No disagreement from me on Simmons First time I have listened in a while. Even then it was only b/c of the Holiday discussion and O'Connor was on I'm on a steady diet of Limited Upside, Lowe Post, Open Floor, some Duncd On (a Coon pod coming soon I think), and now Mahoney's Breakaway...

re: Possible Upside to Struggles? - corndeaux
Simmons had a trade deadline pod the other day. a decent discussion on Holiday and his value compared to other PG situations in the league. under the assumption that he gets a big payday, he and the guests had Holiday around 18th. which may be a little low for me, but is not unreasonable. but ...

re: Gentry ........ - corndeaux
[quote]I guess it is a dumb idea to evaluate players on the team and see how they fit into the future plans. [/quote] yes it is. Ajinca/Asik dont fit into future plans for any team, much less one featuring two top 10 frontcourt players. they are slow, paint bound 5th bigs in a league that incr...

re: Gentry ........ - corndeaux
[quote]maybe play some DMO [b]AJeca Asik[/b] and see if they can fit into the future [/quote] a solution to the problems of a team with two dominant big men and limited perimeter threats is to play more, sub replacement level big men? maybe you shouldnt be coaching basketball on any level...

re: Cousins 9 shots - 4 3PT Attempts - corndeaux
They ran the offense through Cousins, both in the post and up top (where he was dealing in Q1), most of the time he was in the game. Yes, only 9 shots but 6 assists (7 TOs) + 8 FTA plus passes guys couldn't finish (Thompson...). Cousins got touches. And Cousins as PC is probably the best way for...

re: Pels waive Omri, signing Reggie Williams - corndeaux
units w/ Cunningham (and/or Hill) at the 4 w/ Davis as the 5 were the most effective the Pels had. probably says more about Davis as a 5 than anything else, but even guys w/ obvious flaws like those 2 playing small ball 4 can be effective. will be interesting to see how things shake out w/...

[quote]My outlook on Demps has been the same, still stays the same. He absolutely lucked into cousins[/quote] right. they absolutely lucked into Davis too and followed it up with some bad moves and bad luck still not sold he knows how to put a team together, but like others have said- they gav...

re: Pels waive Omri, signing Reggie Williams - corndeaux
[quote]a young guy that doesn't know the system [/quote] That is part of the issue right now: there is no system for playing like this. Vet, rookie, whatever, no team has tried to play w/ 2 dominant, skilled, high usage bigs like Davis/Cousins. Doesn't mean it cant work, but it's uncharted wa...
