New Orleans Pelicans

Max Kappel - Dec 21, 2022

Expected to at least be in the running for the playoffs, the Toronto Raptors are 13-17 and tenth in the East. They’re surprisingly just six games ahead of last place Charlotte, and they’ve had a multitude of injuries and dysfunctionality in the young season. They are not an unskilled team, but they currently are a […]


The MVP award in the NBA is usually based on storyline just as much as it is skill and stats. This makes it an award that’s hard to win if you aren’t a favorite early on. This isn’t always the case as sometimes the person who wins isn’t even in the top five for odds. […]

Chris Paul has been seen as a generational winner throughout his career. He’s a true culture changer as he has given 4 teams their best records of all time. He has given the best winning seasons to the Phoenix Suns, Houston Rockets, New Orleans Hornets, and most noticeably, the LA Clippers. When Paul joined the […]

After bowing out, but in a promising style, to the Phoenix Suns in the first round of the NBA playoffs, the New Orleans Pelicans must consider trades to improve their roster. Brandon Ingram is much-improved, while the CJ McCollum addition is paying off. The Pelicans’ top player, in terms of potential at least, Zion Williamson didn’t play all season […]

Sam Friedman - May 2, 2022

David Griffin has been criticized nonstop for his moves in the New Orleans Pelicans front office, since coming over from the Cavaliers in 2019. He traded away their best player in the last decade, Anthony Davis, even though Davis was never going to play for them, and was completely disgruntled. This move doesn’t look so […]

With a surprisingly competitive series, the Phoenix Suns end up beating the New Orleans Pelicans in six games. The Suns will now move on to play Dallas in the semi-finals, while the Pelicans are sent home. Both teams had moments they should be proud of. Here are some of the things each team learned about […]

Suns Guard Devin Booker
Lester Mondragon - Apr 26, 2022

The Phoenix Suns led the Western Conference teams with a 64-18 win/loss tally in the Western Conference. The Suns clinched the best win record and were healthy coming into the playoffs until Shooting Guard Devin Booker’s hamstring injury in the third quarter of their Game 2 resulted in their loss in Phoenix, Tuesday night. Can […]

Last year, the Minnesota Timberwolves ended 23-49. This year they finished 7th in the West at 46-36. The Memphis Grizzlies also went from the 8th seed to the 2nd seed in one year. It feels that every year young teams are stepping up and becoming playoff contenders. With the regular season being over, it’s time […]

Suns Pelicans matchup highlighted by Devin Booker and Mikal Bridges

This has been an amazing year for both the Phoenix Suns and the New Orleans Pelicans. The Pelicans started off the year 3-16 and was seen as one of the worst teams in the league.  This all changed when they made multiple trades, including in bringing in CJ McCollum. The Suns, on the other hand, […]

The New Orleans Pelicans have been much improved since the All-Star break. A lot of this, of course, can be attributed to their acquisition of CJ McCollum at the trade deadline. Their run has vaulted them into the thick of things in the play-in tournament, although there’s still a lot of work to be done. New Orleans […]

Jonah Freelander - Mar 3, 2022

With 21 games left in the regular season, The Los Angeles Lakers currently sit in 9th place in the Western Conference. LeBron James at 37 years young continues to defy the laws of time and is probably in the MVP conversation if the Lakers are having a better season. The Lakers’ offseason acquisition of guard […]

All three are looking like legitimate contenders. Right below those three teams includes the Utah Jazz, Dallas Mavericks, and Denver Nuggets.

Thomas J. Brown - Nov 13, 2021

Brandon Ingram of the New Orleans Pelicans is one of the best young players in the NBA. Too bad most fans and media members don’t know it. Recently, the sports world and the media, in general, have been bombarded with headlines from the memoirs released by a former NBA player. Depending on who you ask, […]

Mac Smith - Oct 20, 2021

This is the second half of my October 20 NBA predictions. The early games can be found here. The interesting late games include 76ers vs Pelicans, Kings vs Trail Blazers, and the ESPN game of Nuggets vs Suns. Both the Nuggets and the Suns are championship contenders, so it should be a good early season […]

Dylan Guest, Editor - Oct 11, 2021

The 2020 NBA Draft class showed out nicely. As expected, LaMelo Ball and Anthony Edwards were the cream of the crop. James Wiseman looked good when healthy. Other lottery picks such as Onyeka Okongwu and Tyrese Haliburton had their time to shine as well. It didn’t stop there, as other later first-round picks such as Desmond Bane, Saddiq Bey, and Immanuel Quickley had great roles too. For those that […]

For weeks, O.G. Anunoby has been looming on the trade block as the Toronto Raptors continue regressing in the Eastern Conference standings.

It’s been a whirlwind few days for the polarizing figure Kyrie Irving. Not long after being named an All-Star starter, he demanded to be traded from the Brooklyn Nets. His wish was swiftly granted, and Kyrie’s been dealt to the Dallas Mavericks. Initially, this looks like a win for Luka Doncic. The MVP favorite has […]

Like the stock market, the collectibles marketplace is not immune to wild swings that can make some collectors regret ever taking an interest in the hobby. Even worse, trading card values don’t always reflect overall economic conditions that determine the price of food and unemployment levels. When the global pandemic forced people to stay home […]

We have flipped the calendar to February and that means that college basketball is ramping up to the mayhem of March and the 2023 NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament.
