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

Four percent chance. It's amazing how much of an impact a 4% lottery ticket could have on this team. Michael and I spend most of the pod talking about the options the team has if they land one of the top picks in the draft. We talk Fultz, Ball, Butler, George, Lillard, and several other teams you probably weren't even thinking much about.

Four percent chance. Tuesday could be boring, or magnificent.

The Pelicans have been eliminated from the playoffs, but there's still a lot to talk about! Michael and I cover the games that have happened since the last pod and bring up whether we should be optimistic or not due to the results. We talk about Boogie as a defensive force (or not) and look at a few stats and decide if they are real or not.

We build a good team that both of us would hate to watch, talk about what the team really needs this summer, and touch on a little if Jrue is part of the answer.

Then we talk about what we would like to see these last four games and what the odds are of keeping the pick. See? Lots!

Enjoy!

No way not to spend lots of this pod without talking about King Solomon, Michael Jordan Crawford, and, oh yeah, E'twaun Moore. We talk about their production, how the team plays when Boogie steps off the court, and then spend a lot of time talking Boogie in general and if he's good or bad for the team. We then talk about whether the playoffs are realistic, what the road to get there would entail, and bemoan the next few games.

And we even mention Omer Asik! Remember that guy?

Michael and I talk about the Hornets game and things we liked and didn't like. We spend some more time talking about Gentry - and then even more time on what coaches do, due to the excellent <a href="http://www.blogtalkradio.com/pelicast/2017/03/10/pelicast-ep-5-chatting-with-pelicans-assistant-coach-jamelle-mcmillan">Pelicast</a>. Then we talk about Boogie Extensions and off-season plans.

Last, we talk about the upcoming games and the Casspi news.

Enjoy!

Though we're still trying to wash the bad taste out of our mouths from that Utah game, Mike and I take a step back and review the last 4 games. We see good, bad, progress, and some major struggles getting penetration. We bag Jrue, defend Jrue, say bad things about Boogie, argue about the team having AD and Boogie hanging out on the perimeter, and talk about what we feel is the most pressing need for next season.

Lots to talk about!

Michael and I get together after the team went 0-3 and are surprising upbeat.  At least I feel like it's surprising.  We do want to know what the hell is going on with Jrue, the other perimeter players, and Cousins less-than-perfect conditioning though.  Then we talk some off-season stuff, how AD's looked, and if the team is still headed to the playoffs.

Well, that high didn't last for long, did it? Michael and I talk about the Rockets game. A bunch. Then we talk about Jrue needing to be aggressive, the team fitting together, and more importantly, fitting with Alvin Gentry. We also get sidetracked into what flexibility the team has over the summer to clear cap space - or not.

And sheesh. That game. Ugh.

Holy crap. We're recording a pod, talking about that terrible Lay-up line - er - All-Star Game, and suddenly a blockbuster trade falls on us. Boogie and Casspi for Hield, Evans, Galloway, a 1st, and a 2nd.

Holy crap. We talk about it. And what else the team may do.

Holy crap.

Michael and I talk about these little letdowns that keep spiraling into Pelicans defeats - and while Michael walks away more positive than expected, I end up a bit more negative. A bit of a change of pace for us, I think! We talk about the importance of the next 6 games to the trade deadline, and if we think Dell and crew are even moving on anything at all.

We also talk about Tyreke's inability to finish with any finesse at all. Ridiculous.

That's pretty much what Michael and I talk about all pod long.  What teams are buyers and sellers, which ones make sense to trade Jrue too, what sort of packages you can get back, etc etc.  We do touch on a few other guys, but it's mostly the Jrue Show.

Michael and I talk about Jrue, Moore, and the push for the 8th seed in the West.  Do we want the Pels to go for it?  Trade Jrue?  Set Moore free?

We also talk about what the Pelicans can get out of this season, how important this stretch of games is, and if Anthony Davis elevates his team.

Motiejunas! Buddy Hield's improved play! Rogue one! 4 wins! 1 game out of the 8th seed! Jrue Holiday's next contract!

Michael and I have a lot to talk about after our hiatus, and we give it all the love and care it deserves.

Enjoy!
