Top 5 centers in franchise history
I'll be doing one of these for every position, I found it kind of tough to rank Boogie because even with playing in only 65 games, he was dominate and was arguably the best player on the team at times. You can't say that for anyone else, aside from the obvious. His franchise ranks with only playing 65 games are kind of comical.

I mean... the nola hornets/pelicans franchise has only been around for 17-18 years coupled with the fact that we had multiple years of Jamal Magloire, Tyson Chandler, and Omer Asik. I dont see whats so hard about putting Cousins in there considering he was one of the best.

I didn’t have a tough time putting him in, I just really wanted to put him above Okafor and Magloire, but couldn’t bring myself to do it because he only played 65 games

No he was considered, but I don’t think he ranks higher in franchise history than the other guys I selected. Maybe if he was here longer than a season.

re: Top 5 centers in franchise history
Boogie was arguably our best player at the time.

He was bringing the ball up the court for Christ’s sake. I’ll call it a tie with Davis.

Davis gets a knock from shying away from the position, *since we are ranking centers*therefore:

Chandler
Cousins
Davis

I guess you have to include Mags, but he was wildly inconsistent, and in their role Meka and Lopez were more consistent.


It’s a shame Favors will be gone, 1 more season and he’s already near the top 5

Thanks man, yeah I’m looking at getting some better audio equipment. I’ve got a nice camera but obviously that’s not used for these types of videos lol

Also, would like some opinions. I’m working on a PF video, but kind of stuck on short term production vs long term. Take Jason Smith and Nikola Mirotic. Smith played 5 seasons here (essentially 2.5 seasons due to injury, 201 games) and Mirotic played just 62 games.

Smith outpaces Mirotic in every category by a healthy margin, because he played so many games, but Mirotic doubles him up in per game averages, 16 pts to 7, 8 rbs to 4, and so on.

Who would you rank higher? Remember this isn’t just better player, because that’s obvious, but who did more for the franchise as well.

re: Top 5 centers in franchise history
I don't know if either of those guys make the list at all. AD, West, PJ Brown, Ryno, Carl Landry would probably be my top 5.

re: Top 5 centers in franchise history
I had AD at C, but West, Brown, and Anderson are clear. Landry is an interesting one, he doesn’t stack up stack wise but I really liked him while he was here

Out of curiosity, what are you currently using? You can get a pop filter for pretty cheap. Blue Snowball is a pretty good starting place, but if you want to spend slightly more money, I'd get a Blue Yeti. Tweaking the settings, it's def one of the better mics out there without having to break the bank.
