In the NO covers the New Orleans Pelicans and NBA Basketball in general, including news, analysis, and rumors on and off the court. Hosts Ryan Schwan and Michael McNamara represent ESPN Truehoop Blog Bourbon Street Shots.
Michael and I break down the 4-game win streak and what it means now that Jrue isn't playing. We talk the uptick in Gordon's numbers, how Anthony is taking more shots now, and address the idea of Jrue going to the bench. We also talk Nate Wolters, whether Gordon may play basketball as a Pelican for years to come, and if we think Dante and Quincy are the answer on the wing moving forward.

Who we would like to see, if this is a reflection on Monty or the team, should he team make more moves without knowing who will be at the helm?

Michael and I talk the coming Pondexter trade and Michael talks about how he thinks it sets up another trade after that. Then I lay out some numbers about the Pelicans Offense, discussing just why the team is actually pretty good at that end. I think the answer will surprise you.
