Tweet During the summer, the New Orleans Pelicans (lol) traded first round draft pick Nerlens Noel to the Philadelphia 76ers for All-Star point guard Jrue Holiday. Apparently, Holiday forgot that he plays for the Pelicans (lol) when he was addressing the home fans before Wednesday’s night season opener against the Pacers: Either Jrue had a brief memory lapse, or he was too embarrassed to say “Pelicans” out loud. We don’t blame him either way. Meanwhile, his replacement in Philly Michael Carter-Williams put on quite a show in his debut for the Sixers. -ALR

There’s plenty of new faces in new places, one being former Philadelphia 76ers guard Jrue Holiday, who is now a member of the New Orleans Pelicans. I still can’t get over that name, Pelicans.

If you think Charles Barkley is turrble at “Who He Play For?”, at least the Round Mound knows what city he works in (at least we hope he does). The same can’t be said for Jrue Holiday, who addressed his new home crowd in New Orleans during the christening of the new-look Pelicans. Unfortunately, Holiday thanked the fans “on behalf of the Sixers” — his old team. Whoops...

During Jrue Holiday's first game with the New Orleans Pelicans, he welcomed fans on behalf of the 76ers. Here's video of the hilarious fail.
The Pelicans brought in Jrue Holiday to form a reliable trio with Anthony Davis and Eric Gordon that could help New Orleans climb out of the Western Conference cellar.

This just in: winning is more fun than tanking. And when you win with rookies and flotsam, knocking off the widely detested repeat champions... well, um, that was more fun than anyone in town though we were going to have all year. And hey, the Pelicans lost, and the Sixers have their pick from the Jrue Holiday deal, so let them do the tanking instead.
