Analyzing the New Orleans Pelicans backcourt

Last week I took a look at the Pelicans’ big men and how they fit in New Orleans. I’ll now shift my focus to the backcourt and attempt to make sense of the guards that will be tasked with feeding their budding superstar, Anthony Davis. Jrue Holiday, Eric Gordon, and Tyreke Evans will presumably round out the starting lineup alongside Davis and center Omer Asik. As the small...

Jrue Holiday supports wife Lauren with unique USWNT jersey: 'Mr. Holiday' (PHOTO)

He and his team have had a spectacular offseason so far. But the hiring of head coach Alvin Gentry and the max contract extension for Anthony Davis likely took a little bit of a backseat for New Orleans Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday in the past few weeks.

Sixers forced to pay $3 mill for not disclosing Holiday injury?

When the Philadelphia 76ers traded Jrue Holiday to the New Orleans Pelicans on draft day two years ago, a lot of people were caught by surprise. In addition to sending the sixth pick in that year’s draft, Nerlens Noel, the Pelicans yielded a first-round pick in the 2014 draft.

The Other Leg Drops On Sam Hinkie

Once On, Never Off?Something that started to make Sixers observers wonder, and part of my significant amount of despair regarding the less than thrilling Sixers draft, was the inability to package second round assets to trade up into the first round for, well, a guard. Any guard, really. Sixers GM Sam Hinkie has been good at finding some in the flotsam of NBA fringe talent, but you...

With Jrue Holiday's recent health woes, is Tyreke Evans the Pelicans' point guard answer?

There's a fairly vocal contingent of the basketball watching online community that derides New Orleans Pelicans guard Tyreke Evans. While there's no arguing with Evans' knack for getting to the rim, and his handles are above reproach, the knock has always been that his scoring talent precludes him from getting others involved.Anyone staunchly adhering to that opinion after 2014-15...
