    No question imo. Hes not resigning here. The Pels needs to not lose him for free. Get the 1st from the Cavs via NJ and Chinning Frye or Tristan Thompson. Use that pick for wing help.
    The most overused words on Pelicansreport.com. Wrongly, I might add.

    ELITE - (often used with a plural verb) the choice or best of anything considered collectively, as of a group or class of persons.

    GREAT - notable; remarkable; exceptionally outstanding

    These words should not be used lightly

    Edit: We could then sign Cunningham and Diaw and we're back in business.

    Rondo/Clark/Jackson
    Jrue/Crawford/Moore
    Shumpert/Miller
    AD/Diallo/Cunningham
    Cousins/Diaw/Ajinca

    That's a deep roster and when Hill come back it will be even more so.
    Have you watched Shumpert play much for the last 18 months or so? Cause he's bad. His three point shooting has deteriorated, he's frequently guilty of trying to play outside of his abilities, and he isn't trying to defend like he used to.

    Do u have inside info about Boogie's intentions? If not, then this is a bad idea. Boogie and AD are the only reasons for optimism about this team.

    This team will not rebuild in New Orleans...maybe Seattle, if it came to that. New Orleans can't wait another 5 years just to finish 8th. AD's injury only makes this a real possibility. When and where does our draft pick come back? Give me some hope for the future.
    Thanks Pelicans Report - I get a laugh or three every day reading this thing. Hoping the magic returns to the SKC soon.

    It's not easy getting two Super Star players, we have two super star players in AD and Boogie. I see no reason to trade them. You won't be getting a Super Star in return from the Cavs, so I wouldn't bother with them.
    If you Jimmer it, they will come.

    You really think that’s how it works? Team just up and moves if we need to rebuild? I’m not going to give you hope if that is what you fear. You’ve gotta be more rational.

    Gordon and Anderson left and we got nothing in return. Hopefully Demps learned his lesson.

    You need to redefine superstar. If Pels had two superstars, they wouldn't be 11-11.

    How many playoff games have these guys won in their careers? Or better yet, how many seasons combined between them have they even sniffed the playoffs?

    Nothing about his past actions have shown he learns from his mistakes.

    No, people are just idiots with their expectations of superstars.

    Ever see what happened to Kobe Bryant when he got stuck on teams with Kwame Brown and Smush Parker?

    Ever notice what happened to Kevin Garnett after management decided to screw the pooch and let Cassel and Sprewell go?

    How was Paul Pierce doing before Garnett and Allen arrived in town to help?

    And for a Pels fan, this season, to be citing "11-11" when they have been sitting right there watching how that 11-11 has come about is ridiculous.

    It's of course always possible to play all kinds of semantic games, in fact that's rather the norm, and define "superstar" until the point that the only players who qualify are LeBron and...well, LeBron. So we'll just say, there are two future HOF big men on this team. Two Top 100 All Time players, both in their prime. If you can keep them both, and don't, you would be a blithering idiot. This happens almost never to a terrible tiny market franchise.

    Not to mention the rules change when both of your best players are bigs. NBA has shown time and time again that when you have a top 10 player who is a guard, you're more able to be an elite team. Like us when we had Chris Paul.
