Pelicans hilariously awkward opening night intro

The 2014 NBA season is being welcomed with open arms. Once again, this Pelicans team has been highly anticipated in the off-season. What was not anticipated, however, was the video intro skit featuring Coach Monty Williams and his team. The Pelicans crew showed off their acting–um–abilities–in this short video featuring celebrity Chef John Besh. Although Austin Rivers probably...

A new year, another chance for the talented Pelicans to break through

In the 2013-14 season, the New Orleans Pelicans won 34 games and finished as the 12th seed in the harsh Western Conference. Looking at that for what it is, you might think the Pelicans do not have much going for them and are likely doomed for the West cellar against.

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...

Josh Childress Acting Childish in Australian League

NBA veteran Josh Childress, who is now apart of the Sydney Kings, forgets what the true meaning of sportsmanship is. He was knocked down to the ground by a hard screen and felt the need to retaliate and throw a dangerous elbow to his opponent's face.

Highlight: Wizards’ Nene spins and dunks over Pelicans’ Omer Asik

Washington Wizards forward Nene took it back to his younger days, as he posted up New Orleans Pelicans center Omer Asik then spun off him to throw down a thunderous dunk. The Wizards have been carefully easing Nene through the preseason, given his injury history and the fact he played for his native Brazil during the FIBA World Basketball Championships. When healthy, there is no...

New Orleans Pelicans: Tyreke Evans to Start at Small Forward

New Orleans Pelicans wing Tyreke Evans has all the traits of being a really good sixth man. He can be an explosive scorer who can carry the offensive load for a team’s second unit and he can facilitate for others. Coach Monty Williams envisioned Evans being his sixth man heading into the new season, but that’s all changed now. After less than stellar performances from three potential...
