re: Was Rondo Really That Good Last Year - TigerinATL
I can't find the quote now, but at some point later in the season AD said something along the lines of "These guys expect me to be the leader." I do think he and Jrue grew a lot this year in ways that they'll sustain with Rondo gone. [quote]"I think he's [Rondo] actually the one who got me thinkin...

[quote]Here are some Rondo stats from Kumar: [/quote] It's 100% about the off court benefits with Rondo. Like when CJ and Dame were texting each other after a loss while Rondo had AD and Evil Jrue watching film. At this point all we can do is hope the lessons from a basketball madman stuck with...

But he’ll have many more opportunities to look good in 4 rounds of the playoffs. The Pels aren’t even a lock to make the playoffs. ...

re: Cousins:Only me and Dell Demps know what was said on the phone - TigerinATL
We dodged a bullet with him turning down the 2/$40 extension last year. But I don’t blame him for not wanting to take a $12ish million deal. He probably does have a better path forward by joining Golden State....

[quote]pels need to be showcasing the dude[/quote] This may look a little different once they add another guard, but for now if Payton and Jrue are your starters I could see Hill getting to play a bit of a Point Forward role off the bench sharing the ball handling duties with Clark and Jackson. ...

[quote]Pretty much everyone knows how that conversation went. [/quote] Between the different local and national podcasts it sounds like they were prepared to offer him as much as they could while staying under the tax. Before the full MLE came into play the amount would have been $18. Once the ...

[quote] AD is our 5 and JR should feast in the paint against second units. [/quote] With his post scoring and passing ability I also wonder if he could elevate Moore and Miller with easy shots like Cousins did. I get what cgrand and Teddy are saying about starting Hill, and I think this is a...

re: Official 2018 Pelicans Offseason Thread - TigerinATL
I was surprised to see those numbers when I looked it up. Moore and Rondo give you a neutral defender and a bad defender on the perimeter. That defense shouldn't be elite, I guess AD/Jrue plus Niko's mobility covers a ton of deficiencies....

Combine that with Kumar's report about efficient Gentryball scoring and this is starting to look like a team where the fit may finally be good enough to make them better than the sum of their parts....

re: Most Underrated Need on the Pels right now - TigerinATL
Why would the Bucks want Porter? If they do trade Middleton for a non star it's because they don't want to pay him much more than $20. Trading for Porter does the same thing as resigning Middleton, tying up cap space meant for a true #2. I could see some sort of Moore/Hill/Ajinca for Middleto...

[quote]Rajon ONLY played in the last 5 mins in 22 close games[/quote] I think your training wheels analogy is a good one and while I would have preferred 1 more year of Rondo, especially as a mentor to Payton, I do think they are ready to run without him. To your point Jrue imposed his will ...

re: Was Rondo Really That Good Last Year - TigerinATL
The thing I worry about most is Rondo was the guy credited with calming them down and getting them focused when they either got down big or had a lead evaporate. Before Rondo this team just laid down and died or doubled down on stupid plays whenever the other team made a big run to either get ahead...

re: Most Underrated Need on the Pels right now - TigerinATL
So we want an above 80% career Free Throw shooter with ice in his veins that is also available for the minimum in mid July? I think there's only 1 answer. [img]https://www.nba.com/pelicans/sites/pelicans/files/styles/story_main_photo/public/otc-crawford.jpg?itok=84e1Q-uE[/img]...
