NBA  > General NBA  > The New Orleans Pelicans: My take on teams that made significant changes
July 22, 2013, 11:33 PM
Here are some interesting quotes from Monty Williams:

"We're trying to come up with offenses we think will benefit the guys that we have," ... When you have guys like Jrue, Eric and Tyreke, we're going to be able to play a bit more faster."

Hate to tell you coach but watching clips of your new guards it has become clear to me that the only set they know is RUN/SLASH/CIRCUS SHOTS, probably the only playbook you'll need is the HIT-BS-YOYO-SI offense, better known as the - Here Is The Ball Son You're On Your Own Shoot It-

I really hate to see the great fans in New Orleans be disappointed. There was a reason why those teams got rid of Holiday and Evans, they can't pass and one of them can't hit the side of a barn (I took that quote from a fan) and like Vasquez they turn over the ball too much, and here is the worse part coach, they were playing with much better talent than you have, so look for the turnovers to blossom.

If the Pelicans fans thought they had a problem with their guard play last year, this season beer sales will hit an all time high, you know, from fans trying to drink their pain away when they discover the Pelicans have put together a turnover machine.

Not all is lost, the duet will provide many top ten plays for ESPN and that is important for fans, specially with another disappointing season in the horizon.

I look for them to win about 30 games. I'm afraid that 88 million in guards (just about) is not going to help much, that's winning about three more games than last year, the math comes out to about 30 mill a game, if that happens it will probably cost someone his job.

You can bet on that.

As always this is a fans opinion and from what I understand everybody has one and I'm thankful for that.

Enough said.

You do realize Holiday made his first AS appearance last season, right? He's an upgrade over Grevis Vazquez.

I think you were dropped on your head one too many times as a child.

In other news....Bo Jackson is a pitchman for 5 hour Energy.

True true......But I'm not comparing, I'm just saying that the TO will increase, those guys cant pass the ball...period...
