  • Shall We Dance?

    Well, that was fun. I spent most of the season trying to remember there were actually 82 games this go ’round and lamenting that a 0.500 season was likely out of reach. The Pelicans went 36-46. It’s not that simple, though. Things got interesting there near the end. 0.500 was practically off the table in […]

  • Suns vs Pels (but with memes) Video Recap

    Suns came into Nola so join me in recapping the game in an entertaining & (hopefully) funny/fun way. If the reception of this kind of review does well I’d love to do more of select games in the future. In the mean time, enjoy.

  • Devonte’ Graham Video Breakdown

    (Photo Credit: Charlotte Hornets) I know some people have been really disappointed in the offseason so far, but I think part of the reason for the disappointment is because many don’t know much about our new players. Now, I won’t pretend I’ve watched every Graham game or that I’m an expert on him, but I […]

  • Are The Pelicans Really After Kyle Lowry?

    The draft is almost upon us with free agency soon to follow. As the clock winds down towards July 29th, rumors from every corner of the internet flood the news waves. I want to talk about two particular rumors that have been reported by several major outlets and seem to be related. First, the Pelicans […]

  • Interview with Pelicans’ Draft Prospect – Austin Reaves

    Austin Reaves is a 6’5” guard who played for the Oklahoma Sooners. Averaging 18.3 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 4.6 assists, Reaves shined his senior year as a versatile initiator and playmaker. Reaves was able to not only score from all over the court, but his playmaking made him a dangerous threat creating for others. One […]

  • Pels Safe Space: Season Wrapup

    Hello Pels fans, after the final game of the season myself, Shamit, & Jason had good time wrapping up the season with the Pelicans community.

  • The Pelicans Are Improving On Defense

    SOURCE: Ashley Amoss/Pelicans

    Photo Cred: Ashley Amoss/Pelicans Going into the season, one of my biggest questions around the Pelicans was if they could put forth a sustainable defense around Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram. Stan Van Gundy, Steven Adams, and Eric Bledsoe were all brought in to steady the defense around the Pelicans’ undisciplined young core. However, the […]

  • Rebuilding Mistakes Part 1: When Teams Just Can’t Let Go

    Winning in the NBA is hard. There are no guaranteed paths to sustainable winning or a championship, but there are many pitfalls along the way that make the task even more difficult. This series will examine common mistakes made by teams during their rebuilding phase. NBA history is littered with failed rebuilds so one doesn’t […]

  • Kira Lewis Jr. is the future

    When the Pelicans took Kira Lewis Jr. with the 13th pick in the 2020 draft it was clear that they liked his long term potential. It didn’t look like there would be many minutes available this year as Lonzo, Bledsoe and Nickeil all looked to be ahead of him at point guard. After a poor […]


    Zion Williamson, the high school mega-star, the Duke phenom who took the NCAA by storm, or some know him as Zion Williamson, the guy compared to Charles Barkley and LeBron James. No doubt about it, Zion came into the NBA as one of the most hyped prospects of all-time. The other-worldly athleticism to go along […]

  • Quick Hits: Defense or Offense?

    I’ve decided to make a quick video to share my thoughts on if the Pels should focus their attention on fixing their defense or their offense. It’s a pretty quick watch & I hope you guys enjoy the video.


    Everybody get in here! Trade season has begun. This past week we received our first dose of major Pelicans trade news – the Pelicans are shopping around Lonzo Ball, JJ Redick, and Eric Bledsoe. They might even be shopping much more! This should not be surprising for a team which has started 7-11 despite having […]

  • The Three Biggest Questions The Pelicans Face This Season

    We made it. The Pelicans open their season tonight against the Tampa Bay Raptors and it’s hard to believe we are finally here. After a complete overhaul during the off-season which left Zion Williamson as the longest tenured Pelicans player, the team has ushered in a new era which revolves around Zion and Brandon Ingram […]

  • David Griffin is Betting on NBA History to Repeat Itself

    The idea of first round picks are captivating, but the reality of what those picks become is often far less exciting. Every fan base with a first round pick studies mock drafts and prospect highlight videos for months before the draft, and then continues to study them weeks after, hoping against hope that their new […]

  • The Top Free Agent Target for the Pelicans Should Be Obvious

    Last offseason, everything was on the table. David Griffin was essentially building a roster from scratch, knowing he had to trade his cornerstone Anthony Davis while simultaneously building around his new franchise player Zion Williamson. This offseason is a little different, as Griffin knows what he has in guys like Brandon Ingram and Josh Hart, […]

  • Your Guide To The Coaching Rumors

    Tyronn Lue Ty Lue has been associated with the Pelicans before Alvin Gentry was even fired.

  • It’s Time To Slow Things Down

    As I watch the Portland Trailblazers get hammered by the first seeded Lakers on national TV, I can’t help but think how far away the Pelicans are from competing. The NBA hiatus allowed a Blazers team, which had reached the Western Conference Finals the year prior, to get healthy and steal the 8th seed from […]
