Following trade for DeMarcus Cousins, pressure now sits squarely on Alvin Gentry to win

Dell Demps just likely made the season’s biggest splash before the deadline so no more excuses.

The NBA's no-man's land: New Orleans Pelicans

Championship or bust has been the motto this past decade in the NBA. As some franchises have loaded up on stars in an attempt to win championships, others have torn their rosters down to the studs in an attempt to land the next big thing. This season has been strange because more clubs than usual find themselves firmly in NBA limbo – neither bad enough to land a top pick nor good...
