    Like most reports involving the Lakers these days i put no trust in it, but if true the Pels org is dumber than i thought. Why would you purposely leak publicly that your not taking the Lakers proposal when the last time the trade was in talks they were supposedly offerning four young guys & taking back a bad contract. Now they have the ability to do all that along with a top 4 pick.

    even if you have no intention on dealing with them, just having other teams look at the Lakers proposed offer would force other teams to come strong. If they are gonna push this i'm not dealing with the Lakers thing... they are pretty much begging the Knicks to lowball them, because Boston's package is looking nowhere near as appealing as it did during the ASB. the 14th, and two early 20 picks this year? Tatum who's hype has died down a bit? AD is signing up to play with Jaylen brown and 34yr old horford in Boston?

    I still think Tatum is going to be a stud, despite this past season. Too much sh*t was going on with that team and it sort of hindered his growth. I wonder how much stock Griffin will invest in Tatum's 2018-2019 season if/when an AD deal is brought to the table involving him.

  7. His long 2s weren’t doing him favors, too. I’m hopeful he bounces back, and he will. He has two good/bad seasons that will serve as his basis for growth.

  8. Ok I gotta reply, cause I'm tired of hearing this rubbish. I'm from New Orleans and currently live in Atlanta. The Pelicans were not as dysfunctional as the media is making it seem. The main issue with the Pelicans during Anthony Davis' career has been the INJURIES. Almost every year there was a major injury or something major happening. We literally lost two years of Jrue Holiday due to his injuries and his wife's life threatening illness. We granted him leave so that he can be there for his wife and kids. Quincy Pondexter was playing great basketball until he had some weird injury that he still hasn't recovered from yet. Eric Gordon was constantly hurt. We got Boogie and started ROLLIN last year, then boom. Achilles. It's like people forgot last year even happened. We finally were able to get through a season relatively healthy, besides Boogie of course.

    People want to harp on him not having any help. BS. He definitely had enough talent around him to win, if he could lead. Just take a look at the players we've had in and around the team since he's been here.

    Bruh we even had Bryce Dejean-Jones who started balling out and was going to be the guy next to AD, get killed tragically the summer after his rookie year. The owner of the Pellies had been sick, in and out of the hospital. Being rushed to the hospital while at practices. That's why ever since he passed, the organization has been running smoother under Gayle Benson. She hired David Griffin (who everybody respects), they're already expanding their new facilities, they hired the best trainer in the NBA from Phoenix... David Griffin said he had some crazy demands that he needed in order to win and that other teams wouldn't do it for him. He said in his meeting with Gayle, he would ask for it and she would say "Whatever we need to do to bring an NBA championship, I'm willing to do." This ain't the same organization. People gonna see.

    I hate the media. Peace tho.

  10. It's more than that. He has flaws in his game that people overlooked.



    Dude is talented but just like people are assuming "well he'll be fine next year" they assumed that he'll be a all star/superstar this past season. His handle is funny. Just like other young players he got holes in his game.

    For an isolation player like Tatum, his highs will be high & his lows will be really ugly. Especially relying on the mid range.

    His 3PT shot seems to be legit so that's good.

    @cashusclay Again, I believe Griff is more than competent and the team is capable of success. But from the outside looking in, it really has appeared the Pelicans have been ran like a secondary sport franchise toy to a billionaire family that did both their community and the NBA a favor by keeping that team in NO. Again, I really do hope they get it together because they've been gifted another generational talent, one that I know will be easy for the good people of that community will get behind.

    The whole idea of there being a draft where these young men don't have the freedom to choose where they work and can be forced into potentially toxic situations for half a decade of their life just feels dated and rubs me the wrong way.
    Instead of rewarding these players for being great the organizations that fail get rewarded
