Country Roads Take Pels Home

After Thursday (8.13) night’s retro ‘Aints preseason opener, many WhoDats are questioning the team’s training regimens. However, Team Benson is doubling down on the system. This weekend, Executive VP Mickey Loomis announced that the group’s other team, the Pelicans, will also move their training camp to The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, W.V. 


The Pelicans Off-Season So Far

The NBA off-season has been busy for New Orleans. One head coach was fired, a replacement was hired, a burgeoning superstar signed an extension The Pelicans are set to soar. Like the New Orleans summertime lull, the NBA is also on break from the six-month long grind. However, for the Pels, the offseason was something closer to Mardi Gras with a flurry of moves and player intrigue capturing fans’ attention beyond the fabulous finals. The Pelicans are at a crucial point in franchise history with a real possibility of coalescing into a perennial playoff contender. 

Perkins Nests With Pelicans

The New Orleans Pelicans are continuing to make their nest in the offseason. On Tuesday (7.28), the team announced the signing of free agent Kendrick Perkins, a vet with plenty of postseason experience.

Feathering the Nest

The NBA Finals just ended, but the Pelicans are busy planning for next season. (This a familiar position for New Orleans hoops). The team just announced that Eric Gordon exercised a player option to stay on for another year, and newly crowned head coach Alvin Gentry will hold his first presser on Monday (6.22).

Flight Failure: Pelicans Abort Monty Williams Contract

The 2014-2015 NBA season saw the Pelicans return to the playoffs and New Orleanians responded with enthusiasm normally reserved for the Saints. However, the run was too little, too late for Pelicans brass. Tuesday (5.12), Pelicans Executive Vice President Mickey Loomis announced that coach Monty Williams will not be returning next year. 

Nesting Season

Takeaways From the Pelicans Playoff Return (& Exit)

On Saturday (4.25), the New Orleans Pelicans were eliminated from the NBA playoffs. Fans will have to wait until next year to see Pierre and the Kingcake Baby again. However, management will be busy. There is plenty to learn from NOLA’s return to the postseason. 

Mayor Mitch Ups the Ante

Tonight, the Pelicans will face the Golden State Warriors in Game 2 of their playoff series. The promise of post season hoops was not enough for Mayor Mitch though. Instead, Landrieu had to put some skin in the game. Eschewing the bookies, the challenge was issued directly to Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf.


Sunday (3.15) was a big day for basketball in Louisiana. Louisiana State University (LSU) learned that they will be dancing in March. A healthy Pelicans team lost in double overtime and dropped out of the playoff cue.

Broken Birds: Anderson, Davis Injured

Updated 14:26

The Pelicans have shown signs of life before. Prior to the recent rays of hope, the Hornets showed signs of life. Before that, the same could be said of the Jazz. Yet, it seems that every time New Orleans starts to establish a presence on the hardwood, injuries intervene. Last night (2.21), Pels stars Ryan Anderson and Anthony Davis both left a game versus Miami due to injury, but this time the team held on and logged an emphatic 105-91 win.

Brow Seat

Pelicans faithful have anxiously been waiting for Anthony Davis’ return to hardwood. Now, the rest of the nation will join them. The Brow announced that due to his pesky right shoulder strain he will sit out the All-Star weekend.
