    I don't know if it's just cause I'm from England. Maybe in America, that god-awful butchering of vowels is sexy? Who knows.

    ESPN is not very happy about this. I'd avoid that spot even harder.

    And I'd marry Rosalyn. That is a beautiful beautiful woman.

    But why are they acting like New Orleans just got a franchise? They've all had to cover basketball games here before. Franchise even won the draft lottery not that long ago.

    Wierd.

    They'll be even more mad when the Bucks and Pelicans are battling it out for titles for the next decade.

    SAS meltdown is glorious. Something tells me the Durant injury is worse than thought.

    That's a cool story. Easy for media guys to have a big head. Nice to hear he's a good one.

    No doubt. And if Leonard stays in Toronto, and if Kyrie leaves Boston things will only get better.

    BTW, WTH does “big market” mean anyway? When people say “player X needs to go to a “big market”” they are only ever eluding to LA or NY, but Chicago, Houston, Philly, Phx, SA, Dallas, are those not all “big markets”? What qualifies as a “big market”?

    I must say- If AD was mature enough to eat crow (I don't think he is). How on Gods green earth could he NOT think that N.O. is ideal ? We've established Jrue & eventually Z as the Alpha's.
    Plus, we can offer him 48 mill per. Plus, NY & LA are going to CRUSH HIM IN TAXES.

    They mean a team with basketball history. New Orleans issue here is it's a football town + small in terms of economy. If you replaced football town with basketball town, it'd be fine. In this case, what's triggering the hate is that you never want to see a superstar go to a team that has botched superstars before. We've had two in the last 10 or so years with CP3 and AD. They both wanted to leave. So no one wants this for Zion.

    It's now David Griffin's job to turn this around. Prior to Sean Payton, same thing with the Saints. We weren't even considered a football town then because we struggled to sell out games. We started winning and now we're in the top 5 or so cities when you think of a football town.

    No one cares about taxes. The quality of life in those cities more than make up for that piece. AD's mentally moved on, so it's tough.

    And I'd venture to say the bigger reason he's still wanting to leave is because of the options that have been thrown out there. He's either headed to LA with LeBron, NY with Durant, or Boston with Kyrie. If the Pelicans leak something like "we really like the timberwolves deal with KAT" he'll be happy to return to NOLA like a little fat kid on the first day of king cake season.

    No one cares about taxes is as close to absurd as you can get.
    For every 1 million Dollars AD would make here, it would cost AD 100,000 bucks off the top in LA.
    So 1) we can offer AD 70 mill more than anyone else.
    2) If LA could offer the same 48,000,000. It would be a 4,800,000 dollar haircut IMMEDIATELY.
    3) This is not counting Real Estate taxes, Road Taxes & on and on.
    4) How is quality of life better in NY and LA ? That is proposterous.
