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.

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.

High Brow: Davis in Lead With One Day Remaining for All Star Voting


Anthony Davis’ injured toe kept him out of the Sunday (1.18) afternoon Pelicans game. But, with one day remaining, the Brow is still on the NBA All Star ballot and faring well. One day of voting remains.


Brow-sing the Channels


The Pelicans faithful may be disheartened by the team’s struggle to tay above .500 this season. However, the Birds are working hard to build a winning franchise out of year of despair. This week, NBA TV will take a look at the intense machinations behind the scenes in an episode of The Association.


Rivers Seeing Green


In 2012, New Orleans’ basketball team was celebrating a name change and two premier draft picks. One of the newcomers to the newly minted Pelicans was guard Austin Rivers. Unfortunately, the the party was short lived. After two and a half seasons of frustrating play, the Pelicans are shipping Rivers to Boston as a part of a three way deal according to league sources.
