New Orleans Pelicans: The “What If Report”

The final buzzer of the NBA season is about to go off. And the New Orleans Pelicans are going to miss their final shot at the postseason. What if the Pelicans would’ve had zero players get injured this season? I predicted the Pelicans to finish as high as a 6-seed in the Western Conference at the start of the year.

“Psychologists have identified some of the factors that make someone resilient, among them a positive attitude, optimism, the ability to regulate emotions, and the ability to see failure as a form of helpful feedback,” (Psychology Today).  When looking at individuals within sports, it seems that people rarely take to the psychological side to explain various successes or failures...

Nikes on his feet, he’s not trying to cheat. Anthony Davis isn’t skipping a beat. This season hasn’t been like the Heat’s, but that’s for another tweet.  The New Orleans Pelicans haven’t had the most successful NBA season thus far. In fact, the team hasn’t been above the .500 mark at all this 2013-2014 season. The Pelicans play their best basketball when three scenarios...

The Scrubs Will Come Out, To-Morrow!

Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow there'll be ThrAGNOF!  Full disclosure - I had to look up this song from that movie about a weird looking ginger chick and it's about coming of age or something.  No, not Teeth!  Last night, an injury-ravaged, de-taloned Pelicans went out and shocked the Clippers.  Kevin Hart, apparently a big Clippers fan, got to travel with LA on...

Herniated disc officially costs Pelicans’ Ryan Anderson his season

When the then-New Orleans Hornets acquired Ryan Anderson via a sign-and-trade with the Magic in the 2012 offseason, they expected to get the sharpshooting power forward who blossomed into a star in his final year in Orlando. For the 2012-13 season, New Orleans got exactly that from him, as the former Nets draft pick scored 19.8 points and 6.5 boards per contest on 44 percent field...

Resilience within the Pelicans, Part 1

Resilience:  the ability to become strong, healthy, or successful again after something bad happens [Merriam-Webster]. 70 games into the NBA season, a team with just 30 wins and way out of the playoff race does not exactly scream for much praise at first glance. This especially goes for a young team that had so much hope at the beginning of the season for all the talent that it...

New Orleans Pelicans: Anthony Davis is unstoppable

Anthony Davis may be the only 21 year old that has more than 400,000 followers on twitter. In the next few days, Davis will see that number rise. Twitter doesn’t define a player’s career, but it tells the world how popular that player is. Just because I only have about 300 followers on Twitter, doesn’t mean that I’m less popular than the star power forward from the New Orleans...

Pelicans' Gordon finally pieces together healthy season

In today's NBA -- where the league's Collective Bargaining Agreement places the allocation of every dollar each team spends under an unforgiving microscope -- players are judged by whether their monetary worth is above, below, or perfectly aligned with their nightly contribution on the floor.
