I'm probably being petty about this, but I hope AD gets shipped off to never never land aka the Knicks. (or worse - I don't care to have someone like him on "my team". I don't care how talented he is.)That totally changes the Pels franchise. Should AD make amends and stay he'd be on a team with Zion. If he still forces a trade, then the return will be foundational pieces to put with Zion. Either way, it's Zion time in NO.
Im in that same boat. I am excited to see how this unfolds but they have to show me that the formula in place allows small markets to compete consistently for championships before I can be fully on board with the NBA again.I had given up on the NBA back in the late 90's because I no longer liked the product, and basically stuck with enjoying college basketball... Then New Orleans got a team and I began to follow the Pelicans casually. I really want to return to being an NBA fan, but the musical chairs that is the NBA turns me off, and AD wasn't making it any easier with his "trade me" crap. That being said, the current scenerio sure makes it a lot more interesting. I am excited for New Orleans!
I can remember a time when it was hard for the Saints to rope in a free agent prospect, and kids who were drafted by the Saints felt like they had received pro football's 'death sentence'. The mentality of most (if not all) top athletes is wanting to win at the highest level. They want a chance to be on a team that has a legacy of championship trophies.The draft is June 20.
Zion didn’t look too pleased. When interviewed he was quick to say it’s not a done deal yet. Such is the NBA...
