  • Where should the Pelicans G-League Team Go and What Should Their Name Be?

    You know it’s coming, you know what it is, but you don’t know where it’s going. It’s true that nobody, really, knows the answer to that. But it’s the offseason and this is the kind of thing I devote brain space to because I want to. And frankly, I have to do whatever I want […]

  • Trew 2 the Game: Happy Boogie Gras

    Chances are you’ve read a fair share of DeMarcus Cousins news lately. The most terrifying front court in years, the Kentucky connection, the big man to big man pick and roll. While every single one of those things you’ve read are 100% valid (so was me breaking the news to Anthony Davis), let’s kick our […]

  • Dear Pelicans: Please Axe Day-O

    Before all of the Harry Belafonte truthers out there turn on me, it’s not that I dislike the song. It’s that I dislike this chilled out low energy song about bananas being played during crucial moments of a basketball game. Specifically, I dislike this sleepy track being played at The Smoothie King Center when a team […]

  • What if New Orleans lost the Anthony Davis lottery?

    Aside from a relocation or a rebrand to Angels, the worst case glad-that-didn’t-happen scenario for Crescent City basketball fans is that we didn’t get Anthony Davis. The good news is that Davis is here, in New Orleans, playing for the Pelicans.  But it’s the offseason and your body needs more Pelicans to digest. So we’ve […]

  • Where should the Pelicans D-League team be based?

    [Listen to the latest episode of the Trew 2 the Game podcast for a playful overreaction to the Kendrick Perkins signing plus more D-League chat] The Fort Wayne Mad Ants are not only the D-League affiliate of the New Orleans Pelicans, they are also the affiliate for the Atlanta Hawks, Charlotte Hornets, Los Angeles Clippers, and […]

  • Trew 2 the Game #32: Commercial Breakdowns

    :: Follow Trew2theGame on Twitter :: It’s a big deal when an athlete stars in a nationally televised commercial. It’s a bigger deal when that commercial is accomplishing what it sets out to.

  • Trew 2 the Game #24: Where is the Confetti?

    Earlier this week we requested our Twitter followers submit questions for the latest tweet-bag.

  • Trew 2 the Game #16: Hype Themes

    Last year at Media Day several players implied that they get the opportunity to select the music that played after they scored. Depending on how true this is, it remains my least favorite thing about Austin Rivers that one of his choices last season was Austin Powers saying “yeah baby”. More than the turnovers and […]

  • Rage

    Rudy Gay.  Rudy Gay!  I voted in #NBARank the past two years.  Somehow, despite my input, Rudy Gay ended up with a higher rank than Ryan Anderson, coming in at 55 ahead of Ryno’s 56. What is wrong with everyone?  Give Anderson 13 shots and you get 16 points.  Give Rudy Gay 13 shots and […]
