re: Fun Question - PelicansBay
[quote]Over Kawhi, PG, CP, etc -- that's insane [/quote] You make a ton of hollow statements. What's insane about wanting a 21 year old, 6'10" PG on a rookie salary over Cris Paul (who is 32, hasn't won anything in his career, is on a max-contract,and has injury issues)? Or Paul George, who has...

[quote]Teams figured him out about three weeks ago. If this team ran, he would be a good fit. In the half court, it would be a cluster If he can become an average shooter, sure. Right now? No thanks[/quote] I doubt you have watched Simmons play in the last three weeks then. I'very watched abo...

[quote]we might not be the team that can poach them to get something, but someone will, b/c they can't keep doing what they are doing. they need expiring's, but they need picks and youth more than anything to start over. I doubt Kemba is the guy they want to give up, but that's the guy I want. [/q...

[quote]I would absolutely love to have Kemba on this team with AD/Cousins/Jrue. Kemba only has next year left on his deal. [/quote] Add Kemba, the Pels are a legit contender; I doubt we have the assets to aquire him. We have the necessary combination of draft picks and young players (Jackson and ...

Jrue is playing like he took Mithchell's 41 (the last time they played) personally. I hope Holiday drops 40 on them tonight....

re: After 3 Dozen Games - PelicansBay
[quote]It really is unfortunate that Hill probably won't come back until after the trade deadline. It'd be nice to see how he fits and changes your needs. He might lessen both the need for guard by shifting Moore's minutes from SF to SG and he also might lessen the need for a backup big by playing P...

re: After 3 Dozen Games - PelicansBay
[quote]Maybe due to the raw talent of our big 3 we should be better, but maybe we are just a top heavy team with flawed stars. Perhaps Solo's return will bolster the defense and we can start winning more than losing, but as constructed this is not a 50 win team.[/quote] I think we are a top heavy...

We are currently in the playoffs[quote]Alright man, if you're happy with this being a .500 team then I'm not going to ruin that for you. All I'm saying is if you have Anthony Davis, Demarcus Cousins, Jrue Holiday, etc you should be better than average. Much better. But if you're happy being average,...

[quote]I'm kind of shocked by the amount of people who think what this team has done this season is acceptable or that they're headed in the right direction.[/quote] The team is currently in the playoffs, have 2 All-Stars, developing chemistry, and have players that actually seem to want to play ...

[quote]digging a 20pt deficit in the 1st half for yourself against one of the worst road teams in the league is the "nature of basketball"?[/quote] Are you having difficulties comprehending? My answer was 'yes'. Dallas is on a three game winning streak (including two on the road), they have won 4...

re: After 3 Dozen Games - PelicansBay
[quote]Uh yeah. We had two days off to be ready to beat them. Were we tired in the first half when we dug ourselves a 20 pt deficit?[/quote] That's the nature of basketball, in case you're not familiar. We have no depth. Add Lou Williams and Mirotic to this team and lose like this, then you have ...

[quote]We damn sure weren't tired against the mavs.[/quote] Are you talking about when AD and Boogie logged 42 and 44 minutes? Are you talking about the game Nelson played 21 minutes (including the 4th)? Are you talking about the game we got 10 points total from the bench?...

re: After 3 Dozen Games - PelicansBay
Here's a novel idea for this fan-base: the team is trending in the right direction, chill the fukk out. Let Gentry and Dell do their jobs this year. Gentry has the players on the roster playing well, the team actually has an identity now. The players seem to like playing with each other. Dell is ...

After 3 Dozen Games - PelicansBay
We sit at 18-18, the Pels currently are the 8th seed in the West. Before the season began, most of us would be happy with our record and standing at this point. Not this fan-base. Instead of trying to improve on the positives, they are ready to burn everything down again. They pride themselves on de...

I think a backup PF/C that can shoot the 3 would be a better fit than a bully who rebounds. I would prefer a player like Patterson or Mirotic over a player like Noel or Mahinmi....

After 25 Games - PelicansBay
Considering the injuries this team has navigated, 13-12 is a great start; things will only improve as the roster's health improves. Getting Hill back will complete the rotation, they will be two-deep at every position: PG- Rondo/ Nelson SG- Holiday/ Moore SF- Hill/ Miller PF- Davis/ Cunningham ...
