Considering how badly all of the centers most people wanted with the MLE played this year, trading for Adams still doesn't seem crazy, but that extension sure does.
I agree. It wasn't crazy to defend the move early on. But its insane to still be defending it after you've actually seen the results.

People were down to arguing about Adams screen setting for Zion as Adams' last defense. Zion would have a career high tonight if he'd knocked down his FTs...

Most people thought this team would be better than this from all the preseason rankings. Several places I have seen has the Pels as the most disappointing team of the season. Lot of sports outlets had them 5-8. They took a step back this year. Team needs an overhaul.

I like the trade.. but the extension was a gamble.

Unfortunately the extension has so far shown to be a mistake.

Don’t kid yourself. Your eyes aren’t lying. Adams is absolutely useless. He’s one of the very worst players in the league.

Why does NAW keep doing this awkward post game interview thing

Cringe central

Maybe it's a team in-joke thing

He's a goofball who wants to try to bring the fun. It's just who he is.

An overhaul in the second year of a rebuild where 60% of your starters are under 24 years old? Gtfo with that.

Last year shouldn’t even really count as the first year of the rebuild, that season was a mess and Zion didn’t even play much.

You wanna know how good this Zion kid is? Dude had 7 turnovers....SEVEN. And overcame that. Wild. But for real 16 turnovers between Z\BI\Zo is ugly to look at.

re: Game thread: pels vs wolves
7 turnovers by Z doesn’t bother me tbh bc half the time he’s getting fouled or people are dropping his dimes. Not all turnovers are created equal. You know who else turns the ball over 5-7 times in games and still dominates? Lebron James.

Z played an elite game tonight.

Good win. They fought hard to get back to force OT. Minnesota was throwing up some serious bricks there at the defense.

He sure was elite but turnovers hurt every team...keeps the games closer than they need to be.

We just beat a team on the road who was on a 4 game winning streak prior to tonight's game and all I see are the same dumbass complaints. This was a quality win and it was expected to be a tough game for the Pelicans.

re: Game thread: pels vs wolves
Yeah, I generally hate turnovers but Z gets a bit of a hall pass from me bc he’s a 2nd year player and I think half his turnovers are either blown calls by the refs or dropped passes by his teammates. He also does a lot of good things on the court. Also, I don’t see a lot of “dumb” turnovers by Z.

And we were clutch! We were down by 10 with 3:31 left, and we fought and pulled it out.

THEY were the ones who crumbled down the stretch.

To be fair, this version of Minny has been beating good teams and were on a 4 game winning streak. They did choke quite a bit though. Their close tonight mirrored about 12 of our closes this season. It was nice to finally be on the other end for once.

true but then DLo came in late and played some hero ball. Dude killed the entire mojo they had. We got lucky.

re: Game thread: pels vs wolves
Yeah def. I feel like Ant disappeared late and that helped us. I think part of it was him injuring his elbow late in the game.
