It's cool to hear Mr. Meyers speaking objectively about the team. It seems that his role with the team along with his relationship with the players limits his expressing ideas on improving the team.

Trew 2 the Game #29: A Joel Meyers Interview
Every Tuesday Trew 2 the Game appears on these pages as a column and it also appears in podcast form on the It’s New Orleans broadcast network. This week’s episode is of such importance that the column of the same name is an accessory. That is because anything in the world of audio that Joel Meyers touches has a good chance to be something special. I’m a huge fan of his timing and the old school-ness he brings to the commentary game and was thrilled to have him in the studio.
On the podcast we discuss his early days working in his field, his daily routine to prep for games, his love for New Orleans and of course, his thoughts on the current state of the Pelicans.

An utter travesty that you did not mention the Key & Peele skit. However, this means you must do another podcast with him.
Can you request at the start of each game that Joel say, "And you're listening to the silky soft tones of Joel Meyers and David Wesely at Fox Sports New Orleans." I mean good lord his voice is velvety gold.
