Holiday is less so. He hasn't thought about free agency yet -- "not even a little bit," he said. The team is worried he will...

Shooting is Overrated Part I: Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins pairing begs for own identity

How Joe Dumars failure for three bigs in Detroit could be the key to unlocking a real contender in New Orleans because of the Pelicans’ dynamic personnel. I’ve beat this drum before — it’s almost impossible to build a roster that will beat the Golden State Warriors or the Houston Rockets at their own game.
