Transcendent Anthony Davis Makes Pelicans Must-Watch On Christmas Day

If you’re a basketball junkie, the NBA on Christmas Day is like, well, Christmas.

What you remember most about Jeff Adrien is probably… nothing. I guess he played for UConn and was considered “a project big with tons of talent” at some point. His most recent pro stint was with the NBA’s New Orleans Pelicans. It appears Adrien is better at a different sport, though: stealing cars. Adrien really did steal a car. According to TMZ, the NBA-nobody stole a Mercedes...

Ryan Anderson unleashes tremendous flop against Cavaliers (Video)

Ryan Anderson probably has a flop fine coming his way after his display Friday night against the Cavaliers. The Pelicans forward was squaring up Kevin Love, and attempted to draw a charge. It was not pretty, and just to clinch how stupid he ended up looking, Love made the basket, too. Points for form. Anderson went down like he’d been shot. Too bad there was barely any contact...

What in the world is wrong with the New Orleans Pelicans?

It stung when the New Orleans Pelicans were ousted from the playoffs by the Golden State Warriors via a four game sweep. It stung, but not as much as it otherwise would have.
