re: Monty says he and Demps aren't on the same page all the time. - 42 on 5/5/15 at 7:13 pm
It is important not to lump everyone together on those "reports." It doesn't work that way. This is somewhat of a nonstory, and we know that they were on the hotseat. Winning cures all. All of this was said above. I think you will find Monty amenable to more running when he has trust in his gu...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Pelicans to offer Anthony Davis five-year deal that could approach $140M - 42 on 4/28/15 at 10:15 pm
I'm not sure that is winning. It is reasonable for him to get one. I hope he does not. You believe he will. I see no conflict. Kyrie got one, so odds are he will. If so, the timeline is about 4 years from now until saber rattling means something....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Pelicans to offer Anthony Davis five-year deal that could approach $140M - 42 on 4/28/15 at 3:43 pm
The comments indicating that the extension will reflect the higher cap are correct. It will also contain an allowance for him to hit the 30% max. I hope there are no options. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Question about the upcoming AD extension... - 42 on 4/20/15 at 1:03 am
First, his contract next season is a rookie scale contract. He can sign the extension this offseason and it will kick in following that rookie contract year. If he is the designated player, it will be for 5 seasons, so Davis will actually be on the books for 6 total seasons at that point... 1+5. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Anyone denying the demonstrated potential is simply ignorant of the facts, either willfully or accidentally.

re: Woj: Monty and Dell were given playoff ultimatum to keep their jobs. - 42 on 4/17/15 at 11:08 pm
Agree with the idea that real businessmen set goals then judge performance considering the goals and circumstances. Woj, to me, was right, but hardened the statement over twitter... Maybe 140 effect, maybe for juice, maybe both. Demps is not perfect, but some of those moves were because that was ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Where Does Dell sit during games? - 42 on 4/17/15 at 10:54 pm
Radio area mostly. If you ever see him, seriously, wave if he is busy, say hey if not. He will talk to you, and he will appreciate it. He is legitimately a normal guy with an abnormal job. He loves this place, gets it, embraces it. He'll talk team off the record, but don't ask about future stu...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Pels seating chart - 42 on 4/14/15 at 1:51 pm
There was an article that ranked the back of 103 as the best overall seat in american sports, if I recall. I agreed to the extent I could. I will try to find it. Their analysis may be a bit outdated due to renovations (distance to seat was a factor), but it's still be high on their list....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Or they need to play well. Not sure why people complain about rigged stuff, conspiracies, and teams sandbagging then turn around and ask for those very things, all while giving their team 0 chance when they clearly have decent, but below 50%, chance of winning at this time. Inconsistent....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
