Video: Every Anthony Davis Block In Near Triple-Double

Elfrid Payton, Anthony Davis

In his first game of the 2014-15 season, Anthony Davis somehow met the insane expectations placed upon him after a dominating performance at the FIBA World Cup in Brazil this summer following his ascendent 20 and 10 season with a banged up 2013-14 Pellies team. He almost had a triple-double…in blocks during New Orleans’ 101-84 opening game win over Orlando. Read More »

Anthony Davis

Anthony Davis is working on a triple-double of points, rebounds, and blocks in his 2014-2015 debut. Only so many players in league history are capable of making such a feat seem completely routine, and fewer still do so while completing dunks like this. Watch the New Orleans Pelicans superstar grab a loose ball under the basket and rise for a 180-degree tomahawk slam while getting fouled. Read More »

GIF: Tyreke Evans Performs Impressive “Moonwalk” Travel That Goes Uncalled

Tyreke Evans, Nene

It’s hard to be an NBA ref. We try our best to give them the benefit of the doubt, but they’re often found by fans to be lacking. Last night, when Anthony Davis was busy destroying the Wizards, his teammate, Tyreke Evans, performed an egregious travel of at least four steps backwards in an impressive moonwalk display that went completely unnoticed by the refs.

Video: Anthony Davis One-Handed Put-Back Crunk Dunk

Anthony Davis

The Pelicans jumped out to a 14-point first-quarter lead against the Wizards tonight in preseason action, and pushed it to 20 by the half. The biggest reason for such a substantial margin against a playoff team like the Wiz, lies with ascending big man Anthony Davis, who played like a man among boys in his three quarters of action.

GIF: Tyreke Evans & Anthony Davis Dunk All Over OKC

Tyreke Evans, Anthony Davis, Jrue Holiday

We really like the Pelicans in the preseason. The addition of Omer Asik could go a long way to shoring up their defense and Anthony Davis, at 28-to-1 odds, is a really good bet for MVP. Plus, Jrue Holiday is back and healthy (he actually dunked on us this summer, so we should know). The Pellies were in a groove last night and destroyed a Durant- and Westbrook-less Thunder team, 120-86. Tyreke Evans and the Brow punctuated the blowout with some righteous rim-rattlers, too.

At one point during Anthony Davis‘ dominating performance during the Pelicans’ 117-98 win over a Rockets team missing James Harden and Dwight Howard, Pellies’ analyst David Wesley asked the question, “Man, how do you guard him?” It’s a question without many — or any — answers as Ant prepares to enter his third professional campaign in the bayou.

Coach Says Tyreke Evans Will Likely Start At Small Forward For Pelicans

Tyreke Evans

When the New Orleans Pelicans signed Tyreke Evans to a four-year, $44 million contract in summer 2013, the basketball world wondered how he’d fit on the perimeter alongside Jrue Holiday and Eric Gordon. Though Evans struggled while coming off the bench when both Holiday and Gordon were healthy, last season still hardly gave us an answer – the trio played just 257 minutes together in 28 games due to a rash of injuries. With fortunate health in 2014-2015, though, it seems we’ll finally get a definitive read on the viability of a Holiday-Gordon-Evans triumvirate. Read More »

New Orleans’ Court Design Features Giant Pelicans Within Three-Point Arc

Pelicans Court

There’s not much gray area for the New Orleans Pelicans nickname – you either love it or you hate it. And though we hedge to the former side, we understand the argument of those standing on the latter one, too. But everyone has to give New Orleans credit for one thing, at least: The team has gone absolutely all-in with the Pelicans motif since its debut last year, and took that dedication to a new level this season by introducing a court design that features its mascot’s huge watermark within each three-point line.
