Willie Green/Season thoughts

Posted by pleading the fifth on 4/30/24 at 8:35 am
3rd season with the Pelicans 1st season: 36-46, won play-in for 8 seed, lost 2-4 to Suns. Zion missed the entire season. 2nd season: 42-40, missed playoffs. Zion played 29 games. 3rd season: 49-33, won play-in for 8 seed, lost 0-4 against OKC. Zion played 70 games. I’m no Willie apologi...

Time to run Murphy, Hawk, and Matt Ryan with CJ and Val. Just chuck up 50 3’s next game and live with the result. ...
Excellent write up and all fair assessments. One thing I’ll add, while the outside shooting has been laughably bad these first two games I think there is an obvious reason why. The court gravity Zion commands is gone. Dort and Williams can play physical out on the perimeter because there is no t...

Trae Young or Jarret Allen

Not sure we have the assets to get one, much less both. But assuming BI and JV are probably gone if/when we lose this series we should have the flexibility to get another big name to play along Zion. Who would you prefer?...

It was a tough fought game. It looks like OKC’s strategy is going to be to key in on BI defensively and make the rest of the team beat them. BI is either going to have to play more physical and go to the rim or he is going to have to be a distributor. Taking contested midrange jumpers isn’t going to...
I mean even with the ball being poked away CJ got a pretty clean look. It just didn’t fall. Both teams shot the ball pretty horrendously so I have no idea what to expect moving forward. BI has to play more physical for us to have a chance. Dort and Williams just moved him around all game. ...
Jemison was in the Pels summer league and in camp wasn’t he? He started for Memphis towards the end of the season and was pretty serviceable for being on a bad team. Only 24 years old....

I think BI is kind of a small town bumpkin. I believe him when he says he hasn’t had his phone on in the past 3 days. He doesn’t seek the spotlight which is why he is so hard to hate on....

Huge double-double tonight and missed some bunnies at the rim. Should’ve had an easy 24/12 but we will take 19/12. He doesn’t fit in whatever scheme Willie wants to run but without him in the first half of the season I don’t think we even make the play-in. I don’t think he’s back in a Pels uni next ...
