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.
Jason and I talk about the 2-2 week, the crushing defeats to the Clippers and Warriors, and what we think about Monty. Rotations? All Bench squads? Hero Ball? Discipline? I also go on a rant about Tyreke Evans, we admire Golden State, and predict the tough upcoming weeks schedule.
We also hate the Clippers and Dallas, talk Dante, and I call Blake Griffin a bad name and don't feel bad about it.
Enjoy the Podcast!
Jason Calmes and I talk about the team's performance during this 0-3 stretch,and the obviously related release of Darius Miller and Patric Young. Who is incoming? What will it fix?
Then we talk Austin Rivers, Tyreke Evans, not being 76ers fans, and Jason's Dream Move.
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!
