New Orleans Pelicans: Davis Adds to His Arsenal

Perhaps the only pleasant surprise to come from the Pelicans miserable start to the season is Anthony Davis’ effectiveness as a three-point shooter. Through 9 games this year (he missed 2 games with injury), Davis has already shot more three-pointers than all of last season. He is 7 of 19 (37%) from beyond the arc, and his ability to space the floor makes him even more menacing...

The New Orleans Pelicans bandwagon welcomed thousands of new members over the offseason, but injuries have decimated the team during the opening three weeks of the 2015-16 NBA campaign. No team has a worse record than the 1-10 mark for New Orleans, which lost six consecutive games to open the year and are about to enter one a tremendously brutal upcoming schedule. Worst of all,...

Is there hope at the end of the Pelicans' cursed tunnel?

Have you ever been anticipating an event so much that you go over how it’ll turn out in your mind a million times?

How Concerned Should We Be On The Pelicans' Nightmare Start?

Adding head coach Alvin Gentry to a young, impressive core made the New Orleans Pelicans everyone's dark horse Finals contender entering this season. But a string of injuries has caused a team ready to explode to instead sputter out of the gate. After securing their first win of the season last night against what looks to be a middling Dallas team, New Orleans is now 1-6 with the...

Jrue Holiday and Omer Asik to Return to Pelicans Lineup Tuesday vs. Mavericks

The Pelicans lineup will be bolstered by the return of Jrue Holiday and Omer Asik, who have been limited to four games and one game this season, respectively.

Expect both to play less...

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

It stung when the New Orleans Pelicans were ousted from the playoffs by the Golden State Warriors via a four game sweep. It stung, but not as much as it otherwise would have. The Pelicans put on a somewhat impossible showcase given they did not win a single game. Readers may better remember it as the Anthony Davis show, during which he put up monster numbers of 31.5 PPG, 3 BLK,...

Could the future be now for the New Orleans Pelicans?

The vultures are already circling Anthony Davis in New Orleans. Even signing a five-year $145 million extension with the Pelicans hasn't really cooled speculation about his future. Will Davis be the next Kevin Love? Chris Paul? Kevin Garnett? The fundamental problem is obvious - there's no second star to put next to Davis and create the type of title contender that would presumably...

    One of my all-time favorite quotes from Breaking Bad came from the great Mike Ehrmantraut, who famously told Walter White, “Just because you shot Jesse James, don’t make you Jesse James.” Pelicans guard Tyreke Evans should probably heed Mike’s words, albeit with a bit more of an applicable interpretation: “Just because you hired the offensive guru of the Golden...
