re: Chris Finch Hypothetical - Bronc
This is great news! Honestly might deserve its own thread. Not having Chris Finch around to develop an offense for a generational big man with Zion's unique skill sets would have been basketball criminality. ...

re: Trajan Langdon named new GM - Bronc
I didn't like Langdon as the POBO. I like him as someone taking a more focused role under a more qualified POBO. It's a downright brilliant move in fact. It allows his strengths to be magnified(culture building, scouting, instilling the vision of the organization) while allowing his weaknesses t...

re: Crewz - Who are your low usage guys to surround Zion/Jrue/AD? - Bronc
Beverly is really one of the more perfect compliments to Jrue out there. 40% three point shooter that won’t dominate the ball but can still run your offense effectively. Lock down defender. Fiery and vocal on the court. In a world where you keep AD I would go hard to get him in the off-season...

In this scenario are we assuming the NBA goes ahead with Pop’s suggestion and gets rid of the three point line?...

re: So, we know we are picking Zion #1, but what about our 2 2nd round picks? - Bronc
Nic Claxton. 6’11 Point center type that can handle the ball, excel in a switch defense as a center, plays well in the break, plays well in the pick and roll, and defends at an above average college level already. If Griffin doesn’t take a flyer on this guy in the second I will be genuinely di...

re: Chris Finch Hypothetical - Bronc
It’s a cop-out answer, but even though unlike many I have skepticism toward Griffin’s elite GM reputation, if Griffin and Gentry are ok with it I’d be ok as well. The guy can craft the hell out of an offense, the question I’ve always had is can he run a team? I always got a more Ron Adams career ...

re: Pels have a dynamic passer staring at them ... don’t blow it - Bronc
This is why I mentioned the other day that losing Chris Finch to Minnesota would be the low key gut punch to an otherwise incredible offseason. Finch, the architect of Denver’s point-center system and getting the best out of Davis/Cousins, was born to build an offensive system around Zion. The...

re: The Dark Horse Team? There's Almost Always One - Bronc
[quote] Any chance they would offer Ayton and the 5th pick? [/quote] I mean I suspect they would have to offer something significant to leap over packages that include the third pick or established guys like Tatum(presumably). Probably an unprotected first rounder as well....

re: Pelicans not high on Kevin Knox - Bronc
[quote]It's really just hurting our leverage if it's all true. If other teams know we don't like other packages they can and will offer less. We should be "leaking" that we're in love with every package out there. [/quote] Though to make a quick point, this is a total 180 from the Demps era. ...

re: The Dark Horse Team? There's Almost Always One - Bronc
That's true but I think realistically the team(s) that will be a legitimate dark horse will have to have a few characteristics: - A confident, bordering on arrogant(or desperate) owner - A confident, bordering on arrogant(or desperate) GM - A stash of assets that fit our wants and can put them ...

The Dark Horse Team? There's Almost Always One - Bronc
Curious to hear from anyone really, but especially from people that have an ear open toward other teams besides the pels. Who they think might be the Pelicans dark horse trading partner? Whether it was Denver sneaking in to get Allen Iverson, to more recently Kawhi to Toronto, or George to OKC, a...

re: Jay Williams spoke this morning on one of the dumb shows - Bronc
I think it should be common knowledge at this point that AD is not the brightest bulb on the shelf when it comes to managing his career on and off the court. He has always been immature but now he has basically let Rich Paul drive the car and they are always going to be perversely incentivized be...

re: Is Zion more hyped then AD was? - Bronc
[quote]Ignoring ADs pelicans career?[/quote] You might need to clarify your hypothetical. I was assuming you were asking generally if AD was suddenly coming out in this draft class with Zion. Presuming they are both 18 and played their same year of college basketball. Who would likely be conse...

re: Is Zion more hyped then AD was? - Bronc
[quote]Who would be picked 1st if Anthony Davis time traveled forward and was in this draft with Zion? [/quote] That's an interesting question actually. I honestly think it would be Zion. Simply because if you look at the numbers, advanced metrics, the dominance of competition, and marketa...

re: It’s do we want Tatum or RJ Barrett - Bronc
Here is a concern before trading for RJ Barrett I would want to be satisfied with if I were Griffin: Is Barrett ok possibly permanently being in Zion's shadow? Being the second go-to guy when the clock is winding down in a close game? Building his game around Zion and not in ways that go against...

re: So does NO deal AD to LAL for Kuzma and #4? - Bronc
[quote]stop while you can[/quote] Lets just be real though. Your team has already made a much stronger offer and off-season rumors have been they want to throw the entire house to get the deal done. Knicks and Boston at a minimum are trying to provide counter-offers. Then you show up offering ...

re: Jake Madison has to be pretty thrilled - Bronc
Listened to the podcast today, appreciate and much-needed the point about not getting caught up in the national media. I know there's a little self-interest there lol, but it's a smart point nonetheless. It matters, but we don't need to let ourselves get personally consumed in it. Also, a humble...

re: Zion's high school coach confirms: no going back to Duke, HONORED to play for Pels - Bronc
[quote]Of course he isn't going back to Duke. This shite that the national media is trying to spin is fricking hilarious [/quote] Yeah it was always ridiculous. If you just map out the money it makes no sense for him to go back to school, play overseas, or try and force a trade. The go...

re: Gary Parish's mock draft on CBSSPORTS; his blurb about Zion - Bronc
This reminds me when everyone was trying to find the perfect comparison for AD. Is He David Robinson? Is He Bill Russell? Is he Kevin Garnett? Is he young Marcus Camby? No, he is AD. Same thing is going to happen with Zion. He's a transcendent talent. In three years he will just be kn...

re: Is Zion more hyped then AD was? - Bronc
1000 new season ticket sales following the draft in 2012 vs. approaching 4000 season tickets after this one. So yeah, I'd say he is more hyped. ...
