re: What to do about Lonzo Ball? - duyp
[quote]Lonzo would fit with a scoring PG. We’ve not had one of those since Chris Paul Whether we have one now (Lewis) is years away. I think his pels career gets caught in the crossfire and this will be his last season with us. What he brings can be replaced [/quote] I can see him improv...

[quote]Lonzo rarely ever drives into the paint.[/quote] Did you even watch last year or his previous years with the lakers? Dude had so many layup bricks.I wonder how many people actually watch pelican games on this board instead of making false statements. [link=(https://twitter.com/thehoopc...

re: Your biggest roster concerns for this year? - duyp
Turnovers, defensive assignments and improvement. Something SVG and the new veterans can come in and help improved on. If we are still making mistakes like we did last year, I would be really concerned....

re: Steven Adams extension - duyp
I think Adams can be a double double machine which is well worth his contract. He averaged 14/10 against us pelicans in 4 games last year. ...

re: Jaxson Hayes, what’s y’all’s opinion? - duyp
[quote]But how did Griffin shape the narrative of the ‘19 Pelicans draft after taking Zion #1?[/quote] Probably wanted to fill more of the roster with rookies since we didn’t have much due to Demps. Too soon to tell honestly. This is more of what it will look like in a couple of years than now. T...

re: Steven Adams extension - duyp
[quote]On top of that, the Pels appear to already have their long term #1 and #2. I would think the odds are much better of building a winning culture around Zion/Ingram and hoping to find a Kawhi/Butler, who blossomed in no small part because they went to established teams trying to win, than conti...

re: Steven Adams extension - duyp
[quote]Signed, Steven Adams, 2021-22, 2022-23[/quote] Let’s wait to see what he does this year for us and then judge. He fits in what we needed last year. 27 million is a lot of money for this year, but we really wasn’t going to be really signing anyone this year honestly. ...

re: Steven Adams extension - duyp
[quote]He’s not Rudy or Bam though. His skills are fine but no one is paying a premium for them like they are going to for the other 2 guys[/quote] Of course he’s not Rudy or Bam, but it sets a market on where Adam lands in price range. I understand if Adams was getting paid 30 but he’s only gett...

re: Steven Adams extension - duyp
[quote] understand you can't have all rookies, but what are you keeping guys like bledsoe and Adams around for? [/quote] Then who do you expect we get? We aren’t getting all star/superstar players now. These guys fit well with us to help us develop our players and help us stay in the mix. Once ou...

re: Steven Adams extension - duyp
[quote]never said it was. Find whatever it was I said that you have beef with but don’t make shite up [/quote] You said “you get paid stuff for like that. Not for setting screens” Adams is getting paid for more than just setting screens. If these guys are about to get paid 30+. Adams should ...

re: Steven Adams extension - duyp
[quote]Gobert & Bam both have 1%er traits. The offense basically runs through Bam & eventually he’ll develop a stretch game. Gobert is the best defensive big in the league. You get paid for stuff like that. Not setting screens[/quote] Would you rather have those guys at 30 million or ...

If we don’t make playoffs, we can draft in a loaded forward draft. If we make playoffs, great, we get more experience under the players belt. Win/win situation for me. ...

re: Steven Adams extension - duyp
For the people who talk about spacing...you don’t need to score to space. Imagine trying to defend Zion one on one in the paint knowing Adams is right there lurking to get the rebound or the pass if you double. Zion first step helps create that problem. Also, these opponents are gonna get bruised tr...

re: Steven Adams extension - duyp
[quote] was liking it until this. Adams is undoubtably better than all of those guys but idk if he’s paying him twice as much better.[/quote] None of these guys are really starters imo. 17 million for a starter isn’t bad, especially how the salary will continue to grow. It’s not going to poison u...

re: Poster on Reddit claims we have signed Wenyen Gabriel and Sindarius Thornwell edit: we did - duyp
Even though he was undrafted, I think Naji Marshall makes a great SF defender. He just needs to improve his shooting and he be a legit 3&D here. If he had better shooting, he would have been a first rounder for sure. ...
