'Buying or Selling the Pelicans Bench?' with Grubb + Oleh + Kevin
00:45:13
The New Orleans Pelicans were thrilled to add Elfrid Payton and Julius Randle in free agency.  They even brought back Ian Clark at the minimum!  But will it be enough heading into the regular season?  While Niko will likely man the 6th spot, the Pelicans still have question marks in Frank Jackson, Solomon Hill, Darius Miller, Cheick Diallo, and a soon to be 36 year old Emeka Okafor.  Will Dell Demps continue to work in free agency, or will the Pelicans' wait until the deadline?   Subscribe and rate us today!   Follow us @TheBirdWrites Blogtalkradio.com/thebirdcalls Itunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-bird-writes-nba-podcast-for-new-orleans-pelicans/id1254580823?mt=2 Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/preston-ellis/the-bird-writes-nba-podcast-for-new-orleans-pelicans?refid=stpr Tune In: https://tunein.com/radio/The-Bird-Writes-NBA-Podcast-on-New-Orleans-Pelicans-p1012419/ Google Play:  https://play.google.com/music/m/Ikgqrpz5xjivbhyutvkj5lya3ni?t=The_Bird_Writes_NBA_Podcast_for_New_Orleans_Pelicans

On today's brief episode, we talk about the Pelicans newest addition, former Laker power forward, Julius Randle.  The 7th overall pick from Kentucky enjoyed a productive year last season, and surprised everyone when the Lakers renounced him in favor of signing Rajon Rondo to a one year $9 million deal.  The Pelicans then swooped in and immediately signed the former Wildcat to two years, $18 million (player option).   Cranjis (T1M_NBA) of Forum Blue and Gold joins us to talk Julius Randle and what he may bring to the Pelicans.   Subscribe and rate us today!   Follow us @TheBirdWrites Blogtalkradio.com/thebirdcalls Itunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-bird-writes-nba-podcast-for-new-orleans-pelicans/id1254580823?mt=2 Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/preston-ellis/the-bird-writes-nba-podcast-for-new-orleans-pelicans?refid=stpr Tune In: https://tunein.com/radio/The-Bird-Writes-NBA-Podcast-on-New-Orleans-Pelicans-p1012419/ Google Play:  https://play.google.com/music/m/Ikgqrpz5xjivbhyutvkj5lya3ni?t=The_Bird_Writes_NBA_Podcast_for_New_Orleans_Pelicans

Grizzlies Preview with Joe Mullinax
00:18:37
The Pelicans take on the second worst team in the NBA on Wednesday night in the Memphis Grizzlies, and yet, there is no reason to feel safe.   The 21-56 Grizz have taken down the Nuggets, Wolves and Blazers in the past two weeks and gave the Jazz everything they could handle three days ago.   With that being said, Editor and Chief Joe Mullinax of GrizzlyBearBlues.com expects only a moderate fight from Memphis on Wednesday.  Hear why and subscribe today!   Follow us @TheBirdWrites Blogtalkradio.com/thebirdcalls Itunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-bird-writes-nba-podcast-for-new-orleans-pelicans/id1254580823?mt=2 Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/preston-ellis/the-bird-writes-nba-podcast-for-new-orleans-pelicans?refid=stpr Tune In: https://tunein.com/radio/The-Bird-Writes-NBA-Podcast-on-New-Orleans-Pelicans-p1012419/ Google Play:  https://play.google.com/music/m/Ikgqrpz5xjivbhyutvkj5lya3ni?t=The_Bird_Writes_NBA_Podcast_for_New_Orleans_Pelicans

We disperse as much blame as we possibly can before recognizing that the Pelicans were simply beaten by four better teams on nights when Anthony Davis was not his best.   There is hope to be had Pelicans fans.  The Grizz and Suns are up next on the schedule before the Pelicans face the resting (?)

Nikola Mirotic is here and the Pelicans are SAVED (at least from boredom).  The former Chicago Bull put up 18, 12 and 4 in his first 35 minutes as a New Orleans Pelican, and the Pelicans could not be more pleased with the result of their dealt 2018 first round pick. With that being said, the Pelicans faltered early against the Wolves and never recovered.  Anthony Davis scored 19 first quarter points, but it wasn't enough as the Wolves raced out to a 22-6 start, and our heroes never recovered.

Pels gonna Pel!! With Andrew Smith + David Grubb
01:01:02
The Pelicans, in Pelican fashion, followed a three game winning streak with a loss to the Atlanta Hawks, the Hawks who previously sported the worst record in the NBA.   The Pelicans' three stars pulled more than enough weight during the three game winning streak but came up short against the Hawks (with the exception of Jrue), leading to the question,"Can the bench step up and help win games?" Right now, the answer is definitively no.  But we'll talk to Andrew Smith of BSS and David Grubb of CCS to help find a way to get meaningful minutes from the bench, explore trade possibilities and buyouts and reach the Pels' full potential.   If you like what you're hearing, subscribe today!   Follow us @TheBirdWrites Blogtalkradio.com/thebirdwritesnba Itunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-bird-writes-nba-podcast-for-new-orleans-pelicans/id1254580823?mt=2 Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/preston-ellis/the-bird-writes-nba-podcast-for-new-orleans-pelicans?refid=stpr Tune In: https://tunein.com/radio/The-Bird-Writes-NBA-Podcast-on-New-Orleans-Pelicans-p1012419/ Google Play:  https://play.google.com/music/m/Ikgqrpz5xjivbhyutvkj5lya3ni?t=The_Bird_Writes_NBA_Podcast_for_New_Orleans_Pelicans

Kurt Helin of Pro Basketball Talk and NBC Sports joined us to talk several of the most important storylines in today's NBA.   We started with the polarizing relationship brewing between Baron Davis and Laura Dern.  How did they meet, and what are some other NBA relationships you would like to see blossom?  Then Kurt takes a dive into the Western Conference to discuss the validity of the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Oklahoma City Thunder.   Do the Clippers still have time to bounce back into the playoffs with the return of Telodosic and Blake Griffin?   What tiers do you put contenders like the Golden State Warriors, Houston Rockets, San Antonion Spurs as well as the rest of the NBA. Kurt continues with comments regarding Kyrie Irving's polarizing summer, as well as his take on superstars gaining more and more power over franchises.

The Big Picture: Wizards recap, Woj article, Santa's list, Predictions and more!
00:57:58
Travis and Trevor got back together for a Christmas miracle: a Big Picture Boys podcast! The two talk about a throwaway loss to the Wizards, memorable losses to the Rockets and Nuggets and how comfortable (sitting by the fireside, cup of hot cocoa in hand) the fans should feel about the Pels’ playoff chances.  Trevor dissects a recent Adrian Wojnarowski article in ESPN detailing Anthony Davis’ desire to make the playoffs; the word “winning” came up 22 times. This season’s wins or losses might mean a long future of Pels playoff games, or a team blown up by disappointment.  Davis specifically mentions other peers of his, including Giannis Antentokuonmpo, Kristaps Porzingis and Joel Embiid. Is he out for blood in upcoming matchups with them? Will AD end up in Boston, as per every rumor on Twitter ever? Trevor sure hopes not. Why is the team so bad defensively? Travis can’t figure it out.  Will Solomon Hill be a difference-maker when he comes back? And, of course, what players (and coaches) will get a fancy new toy from Santa, and who will be left with nothing but coal? Finally, the guys give quick takes on the 5-game slate coming Christmas day, Trevor insisting that most of Travis’ predictions are off base. Trav’s picks: Philly over the Knicks, Golden State over the Cavs, Boston over the Wizards (Trevor agrees here, folks!), Houston in a blowout against OKC and the Lakers in a close one to close out the night. What say you? Find us on Twitter at @trabeta and @ritchieTMR. Go Pels!

Your Pelicans MVP, Jrue Holiday! (It could happen?!)
01:00:02
The Pelicans chose to rest Rajon Rondo this weekend against Sacramento and it cost them.  An overtime loss to the Zach Randolph led Kings had Alvin Gentry fuming after the game. However, the Pels managed to get a win last night against the 76ers.  Barely.  Jrue Holiday and a lineup featuring Rondo-Jrue-Moore-Cunningham-AD exploded for 44 points in the final frame saving them from a crushing loss to a Sixers squad without Covington, McConnell and Embiid.   Follow us @TheBirdWrites Blogtalkradio.com/thebirdwritesnba Itunes: https://itunes.apple.com/es/podcast/the-bird-writes-nba-podcast-for-new-orleans-pelicans/id1254580823?l=en&mt=2 Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/preston-ellis/the-bird-writes-nba-podcast-for-new-orleans-pelicans?refid=stpr

Pels fall 125-116 to Raps, but Rondo looks good! + Nuggets preview
00:40:09
Trevor hosts part one, a recap of the Raps, and I, Preston, host part two with NuggLove's Mathew Huff! The New Orleans Pelicans were torched defensively as they gave up 125 points to the Toronto Raptors after a brief 14 point lead in the first behind Rajon Rondo and his 14 minutes.  The Pelicans looked fantastic with him in the lineup, moving the ball more effectively than they have all season and cutting down on turnovers in dramatic fashion.   However, Rondo fell to his minute restriction at the end of the first half, and in the second Demar Derozan and the hot shooting Raptors did pretty much whatever they wanted to, whether it be taking open looks from deep, or easy, unencumbered lay ups.   It also should be noted AD/Boogie were very frustrated with the officials in this one, taking several elbows from Jonas Valanciunas.     Follow us @TheBirdWrites Blogtalkradio.com/thebirdwritesnba Itunes: https://itunes.apple.com/es/podcast/the-bird-writes-nba-podcast-for-new-orleans-pelicans/id1254580823?l=en&mt=2 Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/preston-ellis/the-bird-writes-nba-podcast-for-new-orleans-pelicans?refid=stpr

The New Orleans Pelicans suffered their third loss in four games, and worst of all, Anthony Davis left five minutes into the contest.   However, good news!  His MRI revealed no structural damage, and Demarcus Cousins led the Pels to an improbable comeback and a late third quarter lead. But the Pels remain 1-3 with the Kings and Cavs looming, and should the Pels not turn things around swiftly, panic could quickly grip our city.   Newly appointed LockedonPels.com's Rory Callais shares his Pelicans takes on the state of the franchise, the role players as well as the three highest paid Pels, and discusses why things could look very different in just one week's time.   Follow us @TheBirdWrites Blogtalkradio.com/thebirdwritesnba Itunes: https://itunes.apple.com/es/podcast/the-bird-writes-nba-podcast-for-new-orleans-pelicans/id1254580823?l=en&mt=2 Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/preston-ellis/the-bird-writes-nba-podcast-for-new-orleans-pelicans?refid=stpr

LAL Recap with Hosts Trevor Ritchie and Oleh Kosel
00:35:53
The New Orleans Pelicans nearly collapsed again before newcomer Jameer Nelson steadied the ship in his spectacular debut.   After leading by as many as 22 points in the third, the Lakers stormed back with Lonzo Ball on the bench taking the lead early in the fourth.  The Lakers left the Pels bruised and battered in the third, literally, as AD took a nasty elbow to the head, and Boogie richoteted off Dante Cunningham and fell to the ground.  Both players would return to action, and finish out the Pelicans first victory of the 2017/18 season, that saw many fans flinging themselves overboard in disgust late, and then breathing into a respirator by the time the clock said 0:00.

Jameer Nelson Reaction with Big Picture Boys
00:27:53
The New Orleans Pelicans signed Jameer Nelson yesterday in a report published by Shams Carania, and released bench unit scoring guard Jordan Crawford to make space on the roster for the veteran point guard.   Jordan Crawford dubbed "Instant Grits," was a popular late season addition last season, and averaged 39% from deep, but unfortunately and unguaranteed contract made him the most moveable piece at a time when the Pelicans seem desperate for depth at the point guard position.   Enter Jameer Nelson.  The former All Star with the Orlando Magic enters his 14th season with the Pels after having finished last season in Chris Finch's system with the Denver Nuggets.  Nelson averaged nine and five on 39% from three, 44% from the field.  He should provide leadership at the point, as well as relinquish Jrue Holiday back to his more comfortable two position.   Follow us @TheBirdWrites Blogtalkradio.com/thebirdwritesnba Itunes: https://itunes.apple.com/es/podcast/the-bird-writes-nba-podcast-for-new-orleans-pelicans/id1254580823?l=en&mt=2 Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/preston-ellis/the-bird-writes-nba-podcast-for-new-orleans-pelicans?refid=stpr

Grizz Recap with Jamile, Kevin and Preston

Rondo Talk with Keith Smith of Real GM

The New Orleans Pelicans shocked and maybe even disappointed their fanbase with the addition of Rajon Rondo.  After signing the former four time All Star and All NBA Defensive selection, Pels fans are perhaps rightfully pointing to his recent lack of effort and team disruption.
