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 talk about the devastating effect injuries can have on this team going forward, as well as recap that back-and-forth Dallas game, compare Jason Smith to Collison in the OKC game, and wonder why Amundson gets minutes over withy. Oh and we try to figure out why Aminu got 31 shots over the last 2 games. Anyone know the answer?
Michael and I talk the 3-2 stretch the Pelicans produced, including the injury in New York that made Michael McNamara think fetal positions are good, the hugely entertaining triple OT game in Chicago, and the horrible, horrible San Antonio game.
We also spend a lot of time talking about Aminu, rotations, last minute play calls, Tyreke, and the impacts of Anthony Davis. Plus, I propose a trade you won't want to miss! Really!
Enjoy the podcast!
Michael and I talk about Tyreke Evans recovering his form, which of the three guards appears to be the New Orleans alpha Guard, the Closing Five, which lineups are good, which aren't, Brian Roberts losing his minutes to Rivers, and bemoan just how tough the Western Conference is. Oh, and we also talk obscure stats, preview the Spurs and Warriors, and recap the Utah and Cavalier games.
Michael and I talk about two soul-crushing games, and one game that managed to make them feel less foul. Plus, is Ryan Anderson the cure to all woes - even those caused by Arch-Villian Monty Williams? Only time will tell.
We then talk about which Tyreke we'll see the rest of the season - Stiemsma's injury, figuring out Aminu, and ask which teams are a Mirage or Real.
Michael and I talk Pelicans Basketball as Michael revises his expectations for this season downward, I try to argue for more optimism and then I take my turn ranting about the lack of three point attempts. We do spend some time glorying in Anthony Davis's amazing ability - and a lot of time being down on Tyreke Evans.
