re: Speculation on a Redick Trade - Bronc
[quote] And yet, Pels have a better record with less all stars... Do you not see where this is going[/quote] I’d assume where you make a silly argument that leaves out the important context that the Warriors have essentially signaled very early on that they are taking the season off and tank...

re: Have we already given up this season? - Bronc
I think the positive development that most people will not accept is that it provides an opportunity to move on from Jrue in a win/win way. I think he is clearly not bought in and it is really unfair to waste his prime in a situation like this, he can probably fetch us some late firsts or a young...

re: Have we already given up this season? - Bronc
[quote]Nor do we want to. We have tons of picks, and developing our players in a winning culture is more important than a higher pick. One of the things that concerns me right now is that players are developing bad habits, either because they are pressing, or because it seemingly doesn't matter. [/q...

re: Trade Lonzo and Favors for a good PG - Bronc
Unfortunately, as is always the case with underperforming teams, I worry just how much Lonzo’s stock has now dropped. Before this season there was definitely a lot more momentum toward the theory that the Lakers were just rotten and Lonzo would improve once away. But how much are teams really gon...

re: Trade Lonzo and Favors for a good PG - Bronc
Would they actually be open to that? I do think you touch upon an important point. Which is why are we even looking toward a ball dominant floor general? Not saying it couldn’t work, but is it actually necessary given our core is made up of ball handlers. We’ve honestly seen our greatest lineup ...

re: Pelicans pick up team option on Alvin Gentry - Bronc
Who decided despite all evidence to keep pushing that combination of Jrue and Lonzo though? Lonzo should have stayed coming off the bench. Having his minutes determined by how he is playing that night. Gentry often insists on maintaining these poor rotations and lineups and that is a major part o...

re: Gentry on Favors: “I don’t have any information on when he will be back.” - Bronc
Agreed. There is something deeply rotten in people that think, under any circumstance, a man should simply and quickly work past the tragedy of suddenly losing the only reason they exist in this world. I for one hope my own mother deserves and receives better than what many here proclaim. And ...

It was bad, but it is pretty hard to top the near 60 point loss at home against the Nuggets in the playoffs....

re: The 2019-2020 Pelicans Talk New Head Coach Hiring Committee - Bronc
[quote]Will Weaver. Langdon loves him. Langdon and Weaver won G-League Exec and Coach of the year last year. Weaver took the Sydney Kings HC job in Austrailia this year, who Didi is playing for now. Thats definitely not a coincidence. And fwiw, the Kings are the best team in that league. I'm n...

re: Sometimes a GMs hand is forced. - Bronc
[quote] And regarding keeping Finch, unless he thinks building an offense around Zion/Ingram pads his resume better than other opportunities, he probably needs to move on to advance his career. If they hire a new HC I expect Finch will be gone.[/quote] I mean unless it is a head coaching gig, th...

re: Sometimes a GMs hand is forced. - Bronc
[quote] They will see this as a storm they need to weather. It's not just about pleasing the fans today, you also can't make every coach you're going to interview think you'll hang them out to dry as a scapegoat the minute something goes sideways. Unless you think Finch can do a much better job tha...

re: Sometimes a GMs hand is forced. - Bronc
[quote]We would lose him anyways dude. A new coach is going to bring in his guys from top to bottom. He’s as good as gone when Gentry leaves. [/quote] Not necessarily. There are currently a number of coaches we have that were part of the Monty regime. I think it's a slightly better than 50...

re: Sometimes a GMs hand is forced. - Bronc
[quote]Worked out for the Raptors. If they don’t believe there’s a guy on the roster that can get the players to play like NBA players, then you’d have a point. I’d probably anoint Finch and see how he handles in-game coaching. [/quote] And if he isn't the second coming? You risk losing one of...

re: Sometimes a GMs hand is forced. - Bronc
[quote] I'd argue that repeated performances like today do more damage in the short and long-term than firing/transitioning Gentry.[/quote] I think there is a point where that may be true, and perhaps we are there, or getting close, but look at the 6ers. As bad as it is right now, that team'...

re: Sometimes a GMs hand is forced. - Bronc
This poor play does look and feel different than years past. Where not only was Gentry more emotionally involved(often showing real passion and anger about things besides foul calls) but the players seemed to be bought in and responsive in a way you just don't see this season. I think the prob...

re: Pels @ Mavs (-9) 1:00 PM CST - Bronc
Yeah that was a putrid shot. Why he and Lonzo are so insistent on taking those step-back contested threes is really frustrating. Curry brain has infected too many players, several on this roster....

re: Pels @ Mavs (-9) 1:00 PM CST - Bronc
Im just tired of pace for pace's sake. Carlisle(I think it was him) said it best, we don't mind pace, we just want pace with a purpose. And that makes so much sense it almost seems self-evident Oftentimes it feels like Gentry simply wants pace for pace's sake. Even when slowing it down might m...
