The Pels are done for the season and they're playing like it

Yeah the Pelicans aren’t going to the playoffs.

Why did they get invited to the bubble? Just to showcase ZION?


I thought they sat Zion so they wouldn't make it?

And Zion and his team don't want to hear he's too heavy. He's going to ruin his body


His style of play and his current size I don’t think longevity is achievable.
82 games, power forward/small ball center in the Western Conference?

I’d like to see Zion trim down a good 20-30 pounds this offseason

I hope we get to see them scapegoat someone and then all this buying off everyone philosophy crumbles.

Yeah, unfortunately they’ll match any offer. He’s too valuable, even as a trade asset. If BI wants Charlotte or NY his best bet is to sign a QO and become unrestricted next season. But I would laugh at NOLA fans if their organization screwed this one up.

A 22 year old All Star who’s averaging 25 ppg, 6 rpg, 4 apg, with a high defensive rating?

Did I just jump into a time machine or something?

BI would be a huge star on the Knicks. Ewing never accomplished anything and his name was always up there with Admiral, Hakeem, and Shaq.

If Zion is healthy, Ingram should stay where he is.

If Zion is damaged... then he should leave.

He looked pissed and frustrated today.

Where did the high defensive rating come from? I thought it fell off noticeably this season, which may be more of a symptom of how Gentry's teams usually fare on that end in favor of increased pace and scoring.

I love BI and he's likely gonna be worth his next contract, but he's also gonna have the good stats/bad team label until proven otherwise. I think he's developed into a good to great scorer, which is enhanced even more by his unique physical profile (hard to stop a guy who can move, dribble and shoot like he does with his length), but I'm still not sure how much he contributes to winning. That's not to say he doesn't or that he can't, it's just kind of an open question right now exactly how far he can take a team as its star.

Though with Zion, depending on his health, it's not like BI will have to carry the load himself anyway.

Okay maybe not a high defensive rating this season but BI has always had clamps.
Blocking Rudy Gobert and then locking down Donovan Mitchell the next play type of defense that’s always been evident.

Definitely not thriving well in Gentry’s system but if you followed him his whole career you already know he brings it’s on the defensive end.

As for big numbers on bad teams not translating to wins , pretty much the story of a lot of the current NBA superstars in our league.

Plus he won’t be eligible for a super max.

Wouldn’t New Orleans just match any deal?

Could be.
After yesterday's game, I dont think the Clippers fall out of #2. Especially since Denver has so many injuries.

I wonder if there was more snitching by a certain team to get Dwight kicked off campus.

Without AB, I really don’t like the potential Blazers/Lakers matchup.

That backcourt is going to give the Lakers problems and the Lakers size advantage is mitigated with Nurkic and Collins back.

Blazers seem like the better team over Boston, win or lose. The Raps and Blazers are my biggest concerns, way more than Bucks or Clips.
