  • An open letter to DeMarcus Cousins

    Dear DeMarcus, You don’t know me, but I have probably seen almost every game you have ever played while wearing a jersey with “New Orleans” or “Pelicans” across the chest. Occasionally, I may miss a game here and there because of working on other assignments, but even then I’m streaming games, following play-by-play on Twitter […]

  • From scrub to sub: Pelicans’ Darius Miller is a bench weapon

    As if he were the protagonist in an ancient epic, small Forward Darius Miller was released from the New Orleans Pelicans on November 30, 2014 and has now emerged as a top reserve player in his first season back with the team that let him go. Miller struggled to crack into the rotation in his […]

  • Pelicans’ injury curse strikes again, but don’t freak out

    As I prepared to make my personal debut for Bourbon Street Shots, the all too familiar voodoo curse that comes in the form of injuries came for starting New Orleans Pelicans point guard Rajon Rondo’s soul. At this point, the injury bug practically feels like a mundane right-of-passage for anyone that joins the Pels’ roster. […]

  • 42 Sense: Season Behind

  • When Public Declarations of Support Are About The Public

    In the middle of another NBA post-season missing the New Orleans franchise as a participant, the topic of the week has been the job status of Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry and, to a lesser extent, GM Dell Demps. Many have expressed discomfort with ownership’s lack of any outwardly stated commitment to the leaders of […]

  • Statistics, Uncertainty and Boogie

    It’s always been curious to me that the NBA writers, bloggers and fans that describe themselves as “stats heads” are the ones who are the least willing to accept uncertainty. This player is bad. This system is outdated. This coach or GM is dumb. Those are very certain statements made by people who claim to […]

  • The Injury Inefficiency Efficiency

    The New Orleans Pelicans seem to be plagued with injuries. Some Pelicans fans feel like this is a curse of some sort. Some writers and even employees and players have mentioned, likely in jest and in frustration. The data backs up that the fans are not wrong about the effect of the injuries and which […]

  • Finding the Perfect Pairing for Anthony Davis

    So far this year the Pelicans are winless, despite Anthony Davis having two monster performances to start the year. And right now, the future doesn’t look too bright. Most people blame general manager Dell Demps. When New Orleans drafted Anthony Davis a championship or two was the expectation. He was the talent of a generation. […]

  • What Could the Pelicans be Waiting for with Dell Demps?

    The Pelicans caught some flack last week when reports surfaced that the team supported and would retain general manager Dell Demps. They caught even more flack when they seemed to backtrack this alleged commitment by canceling his end of season press conference without explanation. Of course, the cancellation could have been over nothing, but why […]

The deal has the New Orleans Pelicans trading Ryan Anderson and Tyreke Evans away to the Detroit Pistons for Ersan Ilyasova, Brandon Jennings, and Stanley […]

  • Preying on Desperation

    The Pelicans have not met expectations this season. As they currently sit 3.5 games out of the playoffs and 4 games out of a bottom 5 record, the Pelicans are perhaps in the worst spot a team can find itself in. Nevertheless, this ball club has won 6 out of its last 8 contests and […]

  • The Learning Curve: Guard Play and Ball Stoppers

    Let me tell you what I think is going on, and let me preface this by saying I am an all around positive guy, everything I write is positive. But not today. It shouldn’t be this bad. November is over for the Pelicans and they have yet to play a full 48 minutes of good […]

  • Where Dell Demps Can Find Value in the Marketplace

    On the surface, the signing of Alonzo Gee seemed like just another low risk move meant to improve depth at the end of the bench and maybe improve the locker room as well. And while it might turn out to be just that, it could also be an example of where Dell Demps can exploit the […]

  • Dreaming of the Draft

    It’s hard to argue that the Pelicans are going to trade for a draft pick. According to a source, they haven’t brought anyone in for workouts yet, and the rumor mill has been churching up nothing for the Pelicans thus far. Recent history doesn’t suggest the Pelicans will be trading into the draft either. Since […]
