re: Article: Start of Zion era creating hardships too quickly for some Season ticket holders - TigerinATL
[quote]A whole lotta company men in here defending this ridiculous increase for a team that is ten games below .500 and that has won 2 playoff series in its history. Sad. [/quote] I'm not saying anyone should be happy about the price increases, but there are people in here acting like they don't ...

re: Article: Start of Zion era creating hardships too quickly for some Season ticket holders - TigerinATL
This is economics 101. The Pelicans literally won the lottery which accelerated the rebuild timeline allowing them to implement a price increase next season that would have taken years to approach without Zion. ...

re: Article: Start of Zion era creating hardships too quickly for some Season ticket holders - TigerinATL
[quote]not sure why so many are expecting to see that product at a reduced rate of a non-playoff team.[/quote] Look at how Zion sold out Summer League. He’s a bandwagon unto himself. STH often help pay for their tickets by selling a few games to life long bandwagon fans from the West Bank. Now ev...

re: Article: Start of Zion era creating hardships too quickly for some Season ticket holders - TigerinATL
[quote]They had no business hiking up prices the way they did. Gradual increases, sure[/quote] Are you expecting a gradual increase in success next year? Even as tough as the West is, would anybody be really happy with start of season expectations being a playoff bubble team again? Or do you exp...

Brandon Ingram is a Gym Rat and Film Junkie - TigerinATL
[quote]The 22-year-old is religious about getting two workouts in on days when the Pelicans don’t play. He goes to practice in the morning then returns to the team’s facility in Metairie at night to work on his shooting stroke or ball handling skills. ...“To my knowledge, he doesn’t have anything...

re: NAW - TigerinATL
[quote]maybe him practicing here with our vets is better experience.[/quote] I would say that's what the team believes. They could send NAW any time they wanted, they even hired 2 assistant coaches this year with the specific role of bouncing between the Pels and Bayhawks as needed. ...

re: NAW - TigerinATL
He just doesn’t have much of a defined role right now. Jaxson got better by playing, so will NAW. They won’t keep all of this guard depth forever, minutes will open for him probably next season...unless Didi takes them from him. ...

re: Zylan Cheatham - TigerinATL
[quote]seems like we like to hustle back on defense too soon when we have times to crash the boards.[/quote] That’s by design though. Did you see this thread about Zion being effective at post ups because he’s beating everyone down the court?...

re: Thunder @ Pels - TigerinATL
[quote]I mean I’m not sure who wants a team with two stars as opposed to three. Especially if you can do so and retain depth. ...having that 3rd reliable option is not insignificant. [/quote] I wish Jrue was better, or at least more consistent and less error prone on offense. But considering...

re: Thunder @ Pels - TigerinATL
This is what I don't think the trade Jrue crowd has fully thought through. When Zion and Ingram are each averaging 24+ points per game, we won't need a Bradley Beal as our #3, in fact his talent and salary would be wasted by redundancy. What we'll need is someone that does less on offense and more...

re: Thunder @ Pels - TigerinATL
I hope the team can stay fully healthy for at least 15 straight games so we can see if the reliance on Jrue changes after Zion and Ingram figure out their pecking order in the offense. ...
