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

Gerry V joins Michael and I to bring his coaches eye to what we've seen this off-season.  We ask him about all the usual suspects, if center is going to be a insupperable hole, Rivers or Roberts, Tyreke on or off the ball, and Jrue Holiday running the point.  Then Michael and I talk about the upcoming game against the Pacers, I predict the Pelicans will have a sixth man winner, and Michael and I handicap the Executive of the Year award and if Dell may be in the conversation.
