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 . . . 43 points! INJURIES?!? OMG!!!! What do we do!!! Or - we break down no less than 6 games and give a brief preview of the week to come. We talk everything - replacements for Gordon, the weakness of the bench, whether Tyreke is never going to hit a layup again, and whether Anthony Davis is a newborn godling placed in New Orleans to save us all.
Michael and I unleash a swath of Anthony Davis appreciation before moving on to the much more flawed team. We focus greatly on Tyreke Evans and his finishing struggles, wonder at Asik's place among Hornet/Pelican centers, enjoy the hell out of Ryan Anderson, and preview the Lakers and Minnesota.
Michael and I give our first game reviews of the season, blasting through what we've seen from the team. We spend time on Asik, Evans, Rivers, Anderson, and, of course Gordon. And we spend very little time on the unbelievably amazing Anthony Davis. I mean, what is there left to say? MVP?
Then we preview San Antonio and Cleveland's upcoming games! Give it a listen!
Michael and I hit on a series of items, starting with a recap of the last two pre-season games. Then we hit on Austin Rivers' option being possibly declined by the team, Lottery Reform that didn't happen, Expected rotations, our two Confident Predictions and Biggest worries, and last, we get to preview ACTUAL NBA GAMES. They're here! Rejoice!
Enjoy the Podcast!
We continue our Western Conference preview with the 9 teams in the Western Conference that will be battling for the playoffs. Where do the Pelicans fall? Well Michael and I have very different opinions on that. The Western Conference is a slugfest.
