NBA Free Agency: Chasing the dream of a Jeff Teague-Jrue Holiday backcourt

NBA Free Agency: Chasing the dream of a Jeff Teague-Jrue Holiday backcourt

Timing is everything and the Pelicans might have a unique opportunity to turn their bad luck around. Let’s talk for a minute about the Sony Glasstron. I’m not sure the exact history of the Glasstron, there’s not much information on who made it, or why, but I’m pretty positive the story of the Glasstron went something like this: Jan Belveer spent his childhood nose down, eyes glued to whatever fantasy/science fiction book he could get his hands on during the 1970s. Growing up in what was then communist-run Czechoslovakia, it was the only way Belveer could find color in the grey...

New Orleans Pelicans need to keep Jrue Holiday and add some shooting in offseason

New Orleans Pelicans need to keep Jrue Holiday and add some shooting in offseason

Joel Meyers recaps the Pelicans 2016-17 season and advises future moves. On today’s edition of the Black and Blue Report, Joel Meyers divulged to the host, Daniel Sallerson, his sentiments on the 2016-17 season and the steps the Pelicans should explore moving forward. He didn’t feel the need to classify the upcoming summer as the most important in franchise history because New Orleans already has two top tier talents, most likely no 2017 first round draft pick and are fully aware of what they need to chase through free agency or trade to be more successful next season. First, Meyers...

Knicks could be perfect place for Holiday family reunion

Knicks shooting guard Justin Holiday was in New Orleans this weekend for the wedding of his sister-in-law. Joining him as a wedding guest was his brother, Jrue Holiday of the Pelicans. The Big Easy weekend — with both brothers out of the playoffs — was for drinking and dancing. Soon, they will talk about their...

Questions for Pelicans: Will Jrue Holiday return? Will team fulfill potential it showed in March stretch

Rendering a judgment on the New Orleans Pelicans season, and the team’s future, vacillates depending on if it’s gauged by the whole or just its parts.

Pelicans settle into the bottom ten in final power rankings for season

Pelicans settle into the bottom ten in final power rankings for season

Retaining Jrue Holiday remains the focal point for national writers Two more games remain for the New Orleans Pelicans. Their potential role as spoiler for the Portland Trail Blazers has been usurped by Russell Westbrook eliminating the Denver Nuggets on Sunday afternoon with an absolutely bonkers game winner. At best they can lose on Tuesday to the Los Angeles Lakers and potentially harm the Lakers chances of keeping their draft pick. Losing both games could help the Pelicans keep their pick if Dallas wins at least once or if the Minnesota Timberwolves and/or Sacramento Kings win out this...

Pelicans expected to extend Quinn Cook a two-year contract: report

Quinn Cook seeks to make a Patty Mills impression over Pelicans final four regular season games

Quinn Cook seeks to make a Patty Mills impression over Pelicans final four regular season games

Could he someday do for New Orleans what Mills has consistently done for San Antonio? Quinn Cook has appeared in just five games, playing a scant 13 minutes, yet there’s a good chance he’ll be unleashed Friday against the Nuggets. Honestly, I can’t wait to watch him play on behalf of the New Orleans Pelicans because he may offer a smart solution for one of the open roster spots next season. If the front office remains steadfast in their desire to bring back Jrue Holiday and barring any unforeseen trade, the Pelicans are not going to be big spenders come free agency. The problem is...

There’s very good reason Jrue Holiday has been plagued with inconsistent moments

There’s very good reason Jrue Holiday has been plagued with inconsistent moments

If there’s one player who needs the off-season break more than any other, it’s the New Orleans Pelicans emotionally drained point guard. An incredibly mystifying year came to a head Tuesday night for Jrue Holiday. In front of thousands of screaming fans eager to see the Pelicans pull out a vibrant victory over the Nuggets in the home finale, the New Orleans guard simply mishandled his dribble, committing an unthinkable over-and-back violation with 18.2 seconds remaining in a one-possession game. Mere seconds later Holiday had a chance to redeem himself, yet another...

Pelicans push focus onto off season with playoff hopes extinguished

Retaining Jrue Holiday remains at the top of the list The off season is here. Last night the New Orleans Pelicans faint playoff lamp was extinguished. Everyone is now almost completely focused on the draft and free agency. Alvin Gentry said immediately after the game that DeMarcus Cousins has a lingering minor injury and more minutes for the young guys are on tap. The ruse of “development” can be laid aside; this wasn’t about learning for next year. It was all about trying to make the playoffs this year. Now, Cheick Diallo will likely get more minutes and the Pelicans will try to...
