In the NO: The Bourbon Street Shots Podcast | New Orleans Pelicans | NBA

Michael and I are joined by Gerry V to get an insiders glimpse into what the scouting process will be for the Pelicans.  We talk about how to look at prospects, which is harder to coach - offense or defense - and what Davis and Rivers should each be doing this summer to get better.  Stay in New Orleans or seek out high level games?  And last, we touch on Jason Collins announcement.

Enjoy!

Michael and I get together to set the table for an absolutely vital off-season for the New Orleans Pelicans.  We talk cap space, player contracts, what types of players they can go after, what their lottery odds are and most likely results.  Then we talk about Gordon and Rivers and Davis and how each of them could improve for next year.

It's time for the team to keep moving forward, and not just with a new name!

Michael and I are joined by Michael Pelissier to talk about Eric Gordon, his production this season, and what the team needs to put around him.  Then we recap the loss against Golden State, secretly one of our favorite non-Pelican teams, and I curse at Jarrett Jack.  We then talk Lottery placement, teams we need to worry about, and which teams we should all root for across the association to increase our odds in the lottery before moving on to the games against the fighting for their life Utah Jazz and double-tanking Phoenix Suns.

Gerry V joins Michael and I to talk about the team's play over this last homestand, whether there will be more than just three or four hold-overs still on the roster next year, and if he'd prefer to get a lottery pick or a veteran.  Then we talk about CP3 eviscerating Vasquez, Davis getting the better of Griffin, and drool over a Nugget wing or two.

Then, Michael talks about the players that changed his opinion of them over the NCAA tournament.
