    We lost to the most loaded team in the NBA which broke a 3 game win streak of our own, defending champions at their home, have made the finals 3 years in a row, holds the record for most regular season wins, lost a total of 1 playoff game last year, is currently on a 13 game win streak....


    And suddenly some want to ignore all the good and blow it all up? Get out of here with that.
    Look I get it, its a hard truth but fact of the matter is its all for nothing if you can't beat them in a 7 game series which we can't.

    Cool story bro.
    How to fix this team.

    Fire gentry, he's obviously has no clue on how to play 2 of the best big in the league.

    Can Rondo- I was all for Rondo coming to N.O but his inability to score will cripple the offense.

    Can Nelson- he's just to tiny.

    Trade Jrue- although it will be impossible with his contract and lack of production

    Just trade everybody only players worth keeping is A.D and Miller. Everyone is expendable.

    No one can reliably beat Golden State in a 7 game series. Might as well tell the Rockets and Cleveland and the Spurs to just firesale their assets for cheap so that MAYBE in 5+ years, they MIGHT be almost as good as they are now! Or does that sound stupid to you?

    The fact is, everybody knows GS are the best team in the league. The only way to change that is to try and improve and attempt to beat them. If everyone just decides that because they're nearly impossible to beat they might as well all stop trying, then the NBA will be more boring than golf. If you want that, go watch golf.

    Personally, I think we've been through our mandatory years of being trash and unexciting. It's time to be good, and exciting. We have those pieces and we could always build. Like I said, the only guarantee that Golden State will never lose is if everyone agrees to just let them win while we collectively suck. It does not take a genius to realise that's stupid, boring, uninteresting, and incredibly unlikely to actually fix anything because the odds that we end up with an Anthony Davis quality player again in five years are slim, and the idea that we get a two man tandem with the quality of AD and Boogie in 5 years is slim to zero.

    It's a bad, lazy fix to a problem we don't have. Only the ultimate defeatist would accept that solution.

    When our "shooters' are making their shots we're pretty tough to beat (see the first half of the Phoenix game).

    Our problem is our perimeter players are too inconsistent. We know what we're gonna get from Boogie and AD. We just need more consistent play from our other guys. Both on offense and defense. Blowing up the team? Nah. Just need a few pieces.

    I think we need to hold pat for the next few week. See what trades or waivers happen around Dec 15. Reevaluate then.
    Then wait to the trade deadline if nothing happens before. We need to make a trade just for roster space to pick up a cut vet. Rando is fine for now.

    Then you might as well become a warriors fan because NO team is besting them in a 7 game series without extensive injuries from them. If all you care about is if your team wins a title or not, you are going to be grossly disappointed.

    We have NO idea what will happen over the next 5 years besides trading AD and Cousins right now would accomplish what? If you are saying the Warriors have the next 5 years then any picks we trade for will already have been selected and up for their next contract by then. We will be spending our time just searching for another AD. Guess what? In 5 years AD will still just be 29.

    I'd much rather keep AD and let him attract stars. If the Warriors are going to be the team beat, players that really want to compete will start looking to pool together. We are actually in a prime position to attract them. We got Rondo based off of nothing but him seeing potential with our team. Imagine what us making a 5 seed would do.

    In the mean time I'm going to enjoy watching my team make the playoffs and possibly surprise a team they go against. We wouldn't see the Warriors until the 2nd round assuming we can make it to 7th seed or higher.

    We lost to the warriors on their court on a back to back. Some of you are overreacting. We have the talent to go far this year. By the time we get to the playoffs we could be a totally different team. Our team is built to beat gsw. Cousins is actually their worst nightmare. They contained him this game. They made him a priority to stop because he scores and draws a lot of fouls which gets gsw in foul trouble and slows the game down. He destroyed them in recent past when sac beat them.

    We are gonna have to coach up this core. We have to get a better coach. We handicap ourselves with our cap and this is the team that we are working with for the next 4 years.

    Question who do you honestly think we can get for our 1st round pick that can contribute right away... preferably a wing player

    Every day I come to this site with expectations of seeing "Breaking News: Pelicans trade Frank Jackson and Omer Asik for Lebron James." Til that day I will still dream.
    If you Jimmer it, they will come.

    Better question might be: Will our pick be attractive enough to garner interest since it might be outside of the lottery?

    Memphis fired their coach today in the middle of an 8-game skid. Hasn’t Gentry done the same before? He still has a job. Lol.

    He got fired because Marc Gasol went into the office and said it's him or me.

    We need a Point Guard that is it. If needed we move Jrue back to the 1 start Moore at the 2.
    Rondo needs to go he is finished as far as I see.
    And you have made this expert conclusion after 6 starts by Rondo?

    Rondo is brilliant. He will be part of the solution.

    The team needs to figure out who is the best 3 and D guy and play him at SF. Probably Miller or Moore until Hill gets back. With Rondo and Jrue in the backcourt we have poor 3 point shooting and would really benefit from a specialist spot up perimeter shooter. Jrue will hopefully improve in that area upon getting more comfortable with his role as a combo guard, but he is at his best when he's cutting to the rim. That's why we desperately need good perimeter shooting from the SF position.

    The answer is clearly to wait for all other teams to tank and then build our own superteam. Bring in LeBron. I suppose CP3 can come back but we'll need a backup for him since he can't stay healthy. Maybe Westbrook. Snatch up PG13. Maybe MKG. A little of that foreign dude with the hard name I don't feel like looking up that's lighting it up. They should be had for Moore or AA or something.

    It’s 21 games in the books. 11 wins at this point of the season.
    Let’s see what’s happens in the next 10 games.
    At that point we can start to see what we look like at the half way point on this season.
    It’s still early to blow up the popsicle stand.

    We need to turn 4 bad deals into 2 assets. Thankfully we have a pick to sweeten the pot.
