Michael and I recap a week in which the Pelicans have some crazy highs and lows - and actually get to play their preferred five for a few minutes. Yay. Then - we predict the rest of the year as Michael says goodbye to the pod after 238 episodes. Yeah. Don't have much else to say. Enjoy the podcast.
In a lot of respects the Boston loss (and its aftermath) crystalized just how bad this team has been over the course of the season for many fans. So Michael and I talk fallout - trades, what we want this team to do, what we think they will do, what is a decent outcome if trades do start happening. W
Michael and I rip of a smallish podcast for you - since my inability to record properly destroyed the longer one we put together. Bleh. Anyways - we talk Asik return, Norris Cole, "are our guards any good?" and how Michael is really down on the crew right now. We also predict the upcoming week and g
Michael and I continue to be flummoxed by some of the trends for this team - including just how bad they are on the road. We also play "what is more disappointing?", "Rap lyric vs Shakespeare", "Which Pelicans not named Davis could be the third best player on a good team?", "Who on the Rockets would
Michael and I are agog over the two wins. When there are so few of them, they become just so, so precious. We talk Anthony Davis' sudden surge in energy, Ish Smith playing well, Anderson playing great, and the imminent return of Tyreke Evans. We also address Asik and Ajinca's minutes, Holiday's poor
Signs are pointing towards the team getting back to being a middle of the pack sort of squad. Jason Calmes and I talk about whether that is real or fake - if we think the team will continue to improve, and totally avoid talking tank. Sorry tankers! We address Tyreke's less than stellar play, a retur
Chris Trew of Trew to the Game (and our own BSS) joins me to talk about an 0-3 week that pushes this team further and further from respectability. We then talk about whom Chris likes to heckle the most, who talks trash the most, and come to realize Chris is a big softie. We also talk about what we t
Shamit Dua joins me in a wrathcast as we tear apart what happened in that Lakers game. We talk how bad the team has been defensively, the inexplicable line-ups, and fail utterly in coming up with reasons why Gentry would play those particular line-ups. Enjoy the podcast!
Nick Lewellen joins me as we recap the week - a winning week(!) - and show ourselves to be terribly conflicted by talking down most of the team while doing so somehow. Sheesh. Then we play "20-20 Hindsight", "Which team is worse", and "Stop me when you hear a player you wouldn't trade Eric Gordon to
Graham McQueen joins me this week to talk another winning week for the Pelicans! That's two winning weeks now! Despite our usual trashing of members of the Pelicans team, we do pick out one shining moment from each of the five games we cover. One of those shining moments may or may not have been Eri
