Why can’t the Pelicans play defense?

Anthony Davis is a stud in the NBA. Its next rising star. Everyone sees this. Everyone sees his soaring blocks and monstrous numbers.

Anthony Davis: A Statistical Anomoly

Something weird happened at the end of the Pelicans game earlier this week against the Trailblazers.  It wasn’t that the Pelicans blew a 12 point lead or that they were outscored by 21 points in the 4th quarter or that Anthony Davis blocked a fadeaway jump shot from a guy that is nearly 7 feet tall.  It was the weird feeling I got when the game was over.  It felt like a...

Anthony Davis and Pelicans are going to see more TV time

The NBA season isn’t even a month old, but already the association’s television partners are putting some flex scheduling into action.  ESPN announced that the network was swapping out a scheduled Knicks-Spurs game scheduled for December 10th and replacing it with Pelicans-Mavericks.

Anthony Davis – Portland Trail Blazers Killer

The Portland Trail Blazers stormed back heroically to beat the New Orleans Pelicans in the fourth quarter of Monday’s 102-93 victory. They trailed by 15 in the fourth quarter only to deliver a gritty, confident last eight minutes of the game that peaked with Damian Lillard hitting a highlight three (again) from the top of the key with less than two minutes to play. I give the Blazers...

Just how good can Anthony Davis be?

Just how good is Anthony Davis? That’s not really a fair question. See, for the past two years, New Orleans has stuck him with a mishmash of ball-dominant guards, shoot-first big men, one-dimensional wings, and Austin Rivers. As far as thoughtful roster construction went, New Orleans was at the bottom of the barrel. But now? Things have changed. Davis played over 40 percent of...
