The Rockets’ guard cannot be tamed.
New Orleans Pelicans
The superstar is going to miss some time.
Can the Pelicans overcome this?
DeMarcus Cousins is an extraordinary basketball player. But time and time again, his temper gets in the way. So the MVP took advantage.
Sometimes, it’s best to know when to pull the plug. Oh, hey Pelicans.
On top of everything else DeMarcus Cousins is able to do, it took him just one offseason to learn how to shoot three-pointers well. One.
Jrue Holiday is above average across the board; there’s not a direct weakness in his game. He’s also not a star, and has become a significant injury risk.
The New Orleans Pelicans are in a very precarious situation and Jrue Holiday has all of the leverage. So, just how precarious is said situation?
The Pelicans may be our best chance to punish smaller opponents that have taken over the NBA. It just means reversing a long trend of dumb decision-making.
Saying Bob Myers gets the nod for Executive of the Year just for signing Kevin Durant seems a little simple. But that’s just it—it isn’t that simple.
If there’s one thing the Warriors can’t handle, it’s a superstar center. Now that the Pelicans have two, a real challenge awaits Golden State down the road.
What does Wall, Butler, Hayward, Davis and Cousins have in common? They’re stars on under-performers. And only one team is trending in the right direction.
Are we entering a time in which Sacramento is willing to trade DeMarcus Cousins? Just in case, we break down every team’s chances of acquiring the big man.
Ömer Aşık doesn’t fit on this Pelicans team, but with Anthony Davis and Buddy Hield, New Orleans has the potential to be sneaky good—if they stay healthy.
If Davis can stay healthy, he’ll be among the 15-20 best to ever play. With his body type, injury is always a worry. Plus, his defense should be better.
While the Dallas Mavericks likely overpaid for Harrison Barnes, the New Orleans Pelicans got a very similar player in Solomon Hill at a bargain.
Ryan Anderson is 6’10” and can shoot well from long range. That’s literally about all he can do. So why, with his 3-point success rate declining in recent seasons, will he likely be overpaid in free agency?
If we needed to assemble an all-mascot team in order to save the world, who would we choose? Wonder no longer.
