VIDEO: Jeremy Lin finds Jordan Hill for dunk with tremendous wraparound pass vs. Pelicans

Jason Whitney   So much for LeBron James’ triple-double in his second game back at Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena. LeBron sent out a tweet days before his second game back as a member of the Cavaliers saying he owed the fans a big game because of his lackluster performance in his emotional return against the New York Knicks 12 days prior. After 118-111 win over the New...

Rivers Ready To Roll

The young New Orleans Pelicans are learning to grow up at a promising pace when it comes to chasing down their dream of making the playoffs this season.

Video: Anthony Davis throws down sick putback dunk

New Orleans Pelicans center Anthony Davis’ length and athleticism allow him to do things that many players can’t. Such was the case in Monday night’s game against the Grizzlies, when guard Eric Gordon missed a three-point attempt.

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...

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.

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...

Figuring out Jimmer Fredette’s role with the Pelicans

The Pelicans made a few off-season moves thus far, most of which were just small splashes. One of those splashes came in the signing of former Kings guard Jimmer Fredette to a one year veteran’s minimum contract. The addition to the team came soon after former Pelicans sharp shooter Anthony Morrow signed with the Oklahoma City Thunder. It’s been assumed that Fredette, who averaged...
