re: Brandon Ingram Is the NBA’s Most Intriguing Rookie Extension Candidate (the ringer) - Baron
Can’t give him that now. Too many question marks with fit, development, and health. The Pels finally have a roster without an albatross contract limiting their ability to shape the team. No way they risk losing that after all of the careful moves to get here...

re: Brandon Ingram Is the NBA’s Most Intriguing Rookie Extension Candidate (the ringer) - Baron
cgrand is right. The Pels are going to have to make a decision on Ingram sooner than everyone else and they are already preparing. Im not sure how likely a mid season trade of Ingram really is. It’s hard to imagine a situation where Ingram is playing well enough to have a high trade value, specifica...

re: Little trouble understanding Lori Lightfoot’s tweet - Baron
Well no guns are manufactured in the State of Louisiana, so technically 100% of the guns recovered here come from outside the state. Also, isn’t Chicago basically on the boarder and extremely close to Wisconsin, Indiana, and Michigan? Wouldn’t that have something to do with it? Or does she think...

re: Dunc’d On podcast: Offseason Grades - Baron
The only thing I’m worried about is someone paying him in the weak FA class he will be joining. The only advantage we have is that there isn’t a ton of space available and that he’s restricted. I’ve seen some places rank him as the 3rd best FA next year behind Davis (who isn’t leaving LA) and Siakam...

re: Dunc’d On podcast: Offseason Grades - Baron
I’m not the biggest Ingram fan either. It’s not just fit with the system, but some of his analytic numbers and projections are not the best. But with his measurables and flashes, he is someone that they were absolutely right to take a flier on. He is by far the biggest question mark for this team ne...

If you want to break down what they did on draft night more like that: Pelicans essentially traded: Solomon Hill Deandre Hunter Jordan Bone Alen Smailagic And a future second round pick For: JJ Redick NAW Jaxson Hayes Didi Favors Cleveland 2020 first (likely 2 seconds) In the wor...

Dunc’d On podcast: Offseason Grades - Baron
Last week Nate Duncan and Danny Leroux did their offseason grades for the Western Conference teams on the Dunc’d On NBA Podcast. I know a lot of posters are already listeners, but if you haven’t heard the episode, here is the idea and cliffs. Each offseason Nate and Danny give each NBA team a gra...

re: Lake Charles police dept. releases dash cam footage of officer beating surrendered suspect - Baron
[quote] I'm hesitant to give them the benefit of the doubt when they had the authority to do the right thing while waiting on the Feds.[/quote] Sure, that’s perfectly reasonable. I don’t envy Law Enforcement decision makers who have duties to both civilians and their own officers. It’s a tightro...

re: Lake Charles police dept. releases dash cam footage of officer beating surrendered suspect - Baron
[quote]LCPD suspended him for 10 days. That's fricking laughable.[/quote] In their defense, it is my understanding that they knew that the Feds were investigating this before they suspended him and were helpful in the process. I think that short suspension has much more to do with protecting thems...

Whether they actually were or not isn’t relevant to his charge. The fact that he’s trumpeting this like it vindicates him is just a slei...

re: Rachel Nichols Interview with AD: Non-committal to Lakers past this year - Baron
It’s to keep pressure and leverage on the Lakers. It’s not only about the money or making sure they are all-in. It’s getting a spot at the table and being a part of all of the coaching changes, FAs, and overall decision making. It’s getting your friends positions in the organization and letting your...

re: The Good and Bad From SL: Shot Selection - Baron
[quote]We played so disciplined and organized compared to other teams it was barely fair.[/quote] Good observation, and the numbers back it up. In those 4 games, the Pelicans were able to force turnovers (19per) while limiting their own (13.75per), winning the TO battle in every game. I assume...

re: The Good and Bad From SL: Shot Selection - Baron
Now for the Bad: in the last two games, the shot selection wasn’t nearly as thoughtful. The Pelicans averaged 15 less points in the paint (41per) and only 13 points in transition (that’s including two overtime periods too!). In those two games, 16.6% of our shots came from between the paint and the ...

The Good and Bad From SL: Shot Selection - Baron
With the Summer League season done, and a soon to be offseason lull, now would be the perfect time to discuss some observations from the last few Summer League games. Individual play has been throughly examined, so I’d like to just focus on overall team play. Just a heads up, I am only referencing t...

re: Morris and Noel fire Klutch - Baron
I understand that and I agree that it is unlikely, which is why I’ve tried to fact check it. I wouldn’t be surprised if he had some agreement that was just less than normal salary % for a higher than normal endorsement %, that seems possible. Not trying to start or spread rumors, just spitballing...

re: Morris and Noel fire Klutch - Baron
Potentially, but it’s not like this is the first time he’s done this same thing. I can’t help but think of Hanlon’s Razor: Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by incompetence. Another thing to consider, I’ve heard that RP takes either 0% of the players salary or very litt...
