Do we know when the Zion extension will be announced by the Pelicans?

Will there be a press conference? I haven’t even seen a segment on sports center about it. The only Pelicans player to even acknowledge this so far was Larry Nance Jr. None of the team accounts have posted either.

I’m sure they aren’t rushing with the holiday but will do it in the next weeks or two. All that matters is he’s signed and he’s ours and the league is fricked.
PG: CJ
SG: Herb
SF: BI
PF: Zion
C: Val
Rotation:
PG: Jose
SG: Daniels/Graham
SF: Murphy/Naji
PF: Hayes/Murphy
C: Nance
End of bench
Kira
Billy
Temple
EJ
Someone’s got to go and Temple is the obvious choice. Maybe someone is willing to take him off our hands for a couple 2nd round picks. This team is deep and battle tested and has as good of a top 3 as anyone in basketball. If they can properly add Zion to the chemistry they had last year then look out for the Pelicans.

I understand waiting for the presser after the holidays. Just weird that all of the team accounts, Zion accounts, and most of the players have been silent about it.

I don’t think the team can say anything until it’s officially signed and filed. July 6th is the official signing day for free agents, so expect to see something shortly after

He was quoting GOP Baw.

As was I. I combined a few of his statements into 1 though.

"Quoting"? Uh, no.

You seem to be taking rather personally what I said about this board's collective insecurities.

Nah, you just went off the rails brotha. And even your apologies/attempts to explain were also absurd.

It was just out of character the way you were attacking posters and Zion out of nowhere while white knighting for Durant of all players/people.

You spent the last 2-3 years being Mr Posi Pel and when KD becomes available, you randomly became the biggest douche on this board for 2 days.

And it seems like you still haven’t quite gotten it out of your system, since you can’t even take jokes about the matter.

Nah, I'm fine with jokes. I don't have a problem with your jokes or anyone else's. But don't make crap up and claim that you're quoting me. That's dishonest.

Lol how many times did you say “this proves I was right”?

And you also literally went on a weird paragraph or 3 rampage talking about OT 10’s, OT 6’s, Kevin Durant, this tells me you all either have fat wives or no wives, etc.

My shortened version of your posts were not dishonest. It was simply a succinct summary intended to make humor out of a few of your more asinine posts of the weekend..

You on the other hand, were making dishonest assertions and statements repeatedly. Attacking Zion. Attacking posters. Attempting to burrow into the psychology into posters that didn’t 100% agree with you. And you were doing so in both a hyper aggressive and haughtily assumptive manner.

So if the board can put up with days of that behavior, you are going to have to deal with me splicing just 2 of your more asinine weekend mantras and combining them into 1 for both summarization and humor’s sake.

Get over it and get over yourself and we will all move on in due time.

If you are summarizing, that's one thing. If you claim to be quoting me, then that's different. It's the very definition of dishonesty. I don't know why you can't understand the difference. One is a joke, and the other is a dishonorable lie.

I'm quite happy to be accountable for my own words, but I will continue to object to you inventing quotes while you claim to be quoting me. I RA'd, because your post should be removed, but I won't hold it against you, because (while I'm human and make mistakes) I try not to hold grudges.

But the reaction of this board to a potential Durant trade was just embarrassing for this board. We had a bunch of losers who acted like they didn't want to trade for a top-5 player, because they'd that would mean getting their hopes up, and then their feelings would be hurt if it didn't happen. It was sad.

I've already admitted to getting carried away with a couple of my reactions to that insanity, but nothing I said compares to the collective stupidity of this board during that time.

Anyway, take a look at this post from a year ago:

quote:

Fine then

10, 35, Bled for Sexton and Prince

If they want kira, or a protected first, or all of our 2nds, then fine. It’s still a no brainer. If they want to dump Love on us fine. We will dump Adams on them. Adams sucks so bad he has reverted to being a offseason workout look at me guy. Embarrassing. You know which franchise is probably dumb enough to believe in that shit? Cleveland.

Adams, Bled, 43 for Love straight up is actually a fair deal.

Full trade could be 10, 35, 43 Adams, Bled for Sexton and Love

We get the best 2 players (1 former all star and 1 future all star) , while dumping 2 piece of shite players, 2 lotto tickets (35, 43), and 10 (which will perhaps end up being a good player in 4 years)

If the Kevin Love part of the deal doesn’t work out, he’s movable at the deadline. Maybe flip him and some seconds for Porzingis or something. He might work though. And we already know for a fact that Adams and Bled don’t. So no harm in flipping them and 43 for a guy that fits better and might work out to help facilitate a trade for a legit 3rd star in Sexton.

Easy Peasy deal. Estimated wins added- at least 10 and that’s not factoring in other moves or internal improvements. Future would be bright as hell, we’d still have the 2nd most firsts in the league to work with, and no more Bled weighing us down.

I’m going to jump ship if Griff doubles down on his previous retardation this offseason. This really is an EASY offseason if you remove your head from your arse Griff.

If the Knicks get Sexton for 19 and Obi, I’m going to blow my fricking Top.


You see what that is? It's a quote. That's what the word "quote" means: it's when you use the person's exact words.

Imagine if we hadn't drafted Herb and Trey, and instead we had traded those picks for Collin Sexton and Taurean Prince. I've said some dumb stuff on this website, but I'm pretty sure that I haven't said anything as "asinine" as that.

This right here.

It was super weird, and even more odd that GOP doesn't realize that that somehow.

It was the most cringy post we've seen since the NolaJake debacle. Not to that level but immediately what came to mind.

That was the best part.

Brotha. My Collin Sexton posts were when Lonzo was on the way out and we needed a guard. And this particular post was pre Jonas trade. Also pre Sexton’s injury.

Everyone on here has posted trade ideas. Some have been good. Some have been bad. I still say this is a wash if you consider full context and compare it to what we actually did instead.

My heart and overall strategy was in the right place. We needed a guard that could create his own shot. Eventually we got one in CJ. Who again, wasn’t really available at all when I was pining for Sexton. I also was dumping Adams and Bledsoe in my scenarios. We actually did that portion, just in a different way than anticipated. I don’t think 1 poster out of 500 projected we were going to dump those 2 to Memphis for Jonas. I also was advocating dumping Kira while he still had value, who God Bless him, ended up being outplayed by Jose Alvarado this season.

Also, speaking of quotes, Larry Nance Jr said Brandon Ingram was 1 of the top 2 hardest workers he has ever played with. The other was Collin Sexton. This was a guy who played with Kobe and Lebron.

So, again, Sexton is a scoring guard, like we needed and he has elite, hard working character, which would have also fit with our best player on the team in Ingram. So if you want to compare me wanting a 22 year old Sexton a year ago, with you attacking Zion and posters 2 days ago over not wanting to blow up our young core for a 34 year old, Durant, who likely has zero desire to be here, then I’m not certain we will ever see eye to eye.

Also, if you would remove your head from outer space for 2 seconds, you’d see I admitted it wasn’t a direct quote, but a combination of things you had said, before you even came into the thread.

Furthermore, even with the amount of toxicity you spewed this weekend, I’m still not sure anyone was a big enough pussy to RA you. So if you want to abuse that function because your feelings are hurt for people joking about the absurdities you said and continued to double down on, go ahead.

I don’t actually care. But if you are going to act like a tough guy all weekend because people don’t want KD on the Pels as much as you, there is no need to flip the script and become the opposite over a minuscule joke that you ultimately brought upon yourself. Playing board hardass all weekend and then RA’ing when someone makes a joke based off of things you said, is literally softer than baby shite. Where is the “honor” in that?

There is nothing worse than someone that spent an entire weekend framing dishonorable, disparaging and disrespectful arguments and analogies, playing the victim over a joke. I am not responsible for damaging your reputation here. You are doing a damn fine job of doing that yourself.

Perhaps you should RA a few of your own posts in the spirit of honor you claim to live by. If my one liner based on your multiple questionable posts “should be removed”, then the inspiration of my joke/quote “should be removed” as well. Because without your 5 star performance this weekend, there was no quote to be compiled or joke to be made.

I’m more than willing to drop things and move on, but please feel free to RA and/or dig up another old thread if you please.
