    The Pelicans Are Gonna Win The West This Coming Season

    People are talking about OKC being this massive upgrade for them, and how challenging they could be if they have good chemistry. They might, but their not even the Warriors biggest threat in the west. The Pelicans have two of the best big men in the league, who haven't even hit their prime yet. They have Jrue Holiday back, who had personal issues last season which is off his shoulders now. And...they have Rondo. You see what Rondo did with the Bulls last season in the Playoffs? That injury was so huge who knows what would have happened after that in the Playoffs/off-season. Tony Allen is a big addition. Ian Clark is solid.

    Using the big men/defensive team example, the Warriors didn't have an easy time with the Grizzlies in games last regular season, losing to them twice. The Grizzlies gave the Spurs a great fight. Let's see how teams handle two of the best big men in the game with that backcourt and defense.

    More likely, the Pelis miss the playoffs entirely

    More likely that boogie and Davis continue to not gel and cousins is in another uniform by seasons end.

    Maybe 10 years ago. League success nowadays revolves around 3-point shooting and run-n-gun, none of which apply here.

    Yep I see the pelicans and the lakers going head to head in the western conference finals. The lakers win in a very competitive 7 game series.. Lonzo ball averages 40/30/20.. They move on to play the Brooklyn nets in the nba finals.. Nba commissioner Adam silver will decide that the nba finals will be held on the planet pluto because d'angelo Russell has ice in his veins.


    What a crazy dream all this would be. Good fairy tale story OP, they should make a movie out of it. I'd ask Tracy McGrady to try his luck at acting and play as Brandon ingram because they both got those lazy eyes

    The tiers, on paper are:

    GS

    SA
    Hou

    OKC

    Min

    Portland, LAC, NOP, Denver, Utah)

    so I think the Pelicans will be fighting for that 6-10 spot.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    Davis needs to show he's worth more then hype and advanced metrics.

    If you can't make the playoffs, he's just an empty stat filler.

    Eh that may be a little rough... Davis has had one the worse constructed teams around his skill set for his entire career. They haven't built a team just random pieces. He def needs to show he's more but the organization needs a lot of blame.

    Is this thread in relation to your franchise mode on 2K?

    not to me. Melo at this point holds minimal value, and is an overlap skillset to what they have.

    I figure 50 wins for OKC, which will be right under the 53-55 I figure for Houston/SA, and right above where I figure the Wolves at 48.

    Let's see if my predictions hold true or not haha

    The Pelicans will have a new coach this year considering Boogie goes through them like a box of kleenex.
