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. […]

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 […]

New Orleans Pelicans Zion Williamson
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 […]

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.

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.

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 […]

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 […]

Something has been brewing in Phoenix over the past few months. Ever since the Mavericks blasted the Suns in an embarrassing game seven display, Phoenix hasn’t looked quite right.
