Hoop Ties

Oct 22, 2021

This week Theus and Ahmad are joined by Will Guillory; New Orleans Pelicans beat writer of The Athletic, to discuss the tip-off of the 75th NBA season and the state of the Pelicans.

When it comes down to clutch time who takes the last shot? Do you prioritize your best player even if they’re having a rough game?

Why didn’t the Pelicans pay Lonzo Ball? Did they make a mistake and is Zion Williamson the number one option over Brandon Ingram? What will Zion have to do to join the elite group of young talent in the NBA?

How special is Nickeil Alexander-Walker? Does he have the upside to win MIP? Who are some of the big names they can make a trade for with all the assets they have? Finally, will Zion be a Pelican in five years?
