07:03 AM ET 07.25 | So much for the shock of trying to wrestle with the idea of a new city, new team and new teammates. Ninety seconds. As Jrue Holiday tells it, a minute and a half was all he needed to get over the initial shock and disappointment of finding out that he'd been traded for the first time, by the only NBA team he'd ever known. Holiday was watching the NBA draft on June 27 with friends when he learned that Philadelphia had dealt him to New Orleans. ... "My best friend was like, 'Hey, you're playing with Eric Gordon,'" Holiday remembered this week in Las Vegas. "I was like, 'Oh snap.' And then he said, 'And you know you're going to have Anthony Davis, right?' I was like, 'Oh snap' again. Then he just started naming off dudes, like Ryan Anderson. Then (in July) we brought in Tyreke (Evans)."

The Pelicans are an enigma. Holiday, Anderson and Davis are very nice pieces.Gordon and Evans.....meh.But as a young multimillionaire, I would not wanna live in Nola.

They could surprise some team this coming season.

Yeah, there is some individual talent there, but I don't like the mix

I also like the talent but not sure if theyre gonna mix. If tyreke comes off the bench it could. But idk about if he starts

Holiday just lose enough so that the Sixers get a 6-10 draft pick. That is all...

I was thinking the same. Prolly went like this:
Oh snap, Nola is a sucky place. Oh snap, so is Philly.
Oh snap, they are still willing to pay millions to me!

I'm surprise they had a stop watch to know that it was 90 seconds.
