re: Pels Hire SVG - Pistol44
Good hire, I would have preferred Ham but a coach with solid defensive principles and accountability is exactly what this team needs. Look to run the roster back (Favors?) and cut rotations down to 8-9. Look for depth upgrades through draft and FA at Point and PF/C. ...

re: Did we learn anything from the Bubble? - Pistol44
We were shooting 2 bullets short all year due to a lack of interior presence. We got our clocked cleaned and gave up 140 against SAC, in our most important game of the year, where we outshot them from 3..... Happened a lot. ...

re: Realistic off-season wish list (Draft/FA/Trade) - Pistol44
Difference is that Tatum is not the ball distributor BI is. Griff thinks BI is playing out of position. A move to SG is interesting for a number of reasons. I look for his usage rate to increase. ...

re: N/P - Any chance the Lakers aren't the 2020 NBA Champs***?? - Pistol44
It’ll be interesting because Nuggets can through bigs at Lakers for all the talk of Lakers size advantage. Nuggets have Milsap, Joker, Plumlee, and MPJ. I don’t think it will be as easy in the paint as advertised for the Lakers....

re: Pelicans offseason thread: Pels hire SVG/NBA draft - Nov. 18/ Pelicans pick 13, 39, 42, 60 - Pistol44
Both Lakers and Clips have front court bigs at 6’8 225+ that can play Strong perimeter defense, switch and recover to protect the paint. Favors is our model but seemed a step slower this year ... back? I remember him much quicker in Utah. Playing small ball PF and C appears to be not sustainable fo...

re: Jrue snubbed from all-defensive team - Pistol44
Appears that selectors are looking at team defense, that is the only explanation of the snub. Jrue is a top 5 defensive player in this league regardless of position and should be perennial NBA all-defensive team with a couple of defensive player of the year awards under his belt. ...

re: Pelicans offseason thread: Pels hire SVG/NBA draft - Nov. 18/ Pelicans pick 13, 39, 42, 60 - Pistol44
I like Bey and Smith .... Smith a little more. However, Vassel and Nesmith provide how much more than Josh and JJ? To me that’s the problem of adding more perimeter players, we already have whatever we’d draft or sign with our existing cap. Look at Rockets trying to hold up right now under an onsl...

re: Pelicans offseason thread: Pels hire SVG/NBA draft - Nov. 18/ Pelicans pick 13, 39, 42, 60 - Pistol44
1s, 2s, and 3s are perimeter players who’s action and responsibilities are primarily On the wings, not the paint. Maybe backcourt frontcourt would be a more apt description. Point being we are overloaded at the position and undersized overall. Of the nine we’d be better served switching out three f...

re: Pelicans offseason thread: Pels hire SVG/NBA draft - Nov. 18/ Pelicans pick 13, 39, 42, 60 - Pistol44
I question the need for wings in the draft/free agency. Pels have an abundance of wings the organization likes ...BI, Jrue, Zo, JJ, Josh, NAW, Frank, Kenrich, and Didi. As constructed we played fast pace small ball, Griff and Langdon May want get bigger. Adding athletic front court Presence and be...

Fizdale took a mediocre team to the playoffs on the basis of a tough gritty defense and a analytics based offensive scheme. Went sideways with Gasol with his insistence he take more threes. Disregard stint with Knicks with Dolan as owner....

re: Sam Cassell / David Fizdale - Pistol44
I like Fizdale ... Emphasis on defense is sorely needed. With the talent we have the offense will take care of itself, champions are built on defense in the NBA. Zo, Hayes, BI, and Jrue all have attributes to be plus defenders on a consistent basis....
