His most recent pro stint was with the NBA’s New Orleans Pelicans. It appears Adrien is better at a different sport, though: stealing cars. Adrien really did steal a car. According to TMZ, the NBA-nobody stole a Mercedes...

Ryan Anderson unleashes tremendous flop against Cavaliers (Video)

Ryan Anderson probably has a flop fine coming his way after his display Friday night against the Cavaliers. The Pelicans forward was squaring up Kevin Love, and attempted to draw a charge.

What in the world is wrong with the New Orleans Pelicans?

Readers may better remember it as the Anthony Davis show, during which he put up monster numbers of 31.5 PPG, 3 BLK,...
