    Not sure why Zion would want his ball hoggin’ buddy to follow him to NOLA.

    This is all uninformed speculation at this point …

      “This is all uninformed speculation at this point” is the only statement in this post that’s sure to be accurate. NBA article written by a NCAA homer who should stick to what he knows, college basketball.

      This is far from the worst case for the NBA. It helps re-energize 2 of the lowest franchises in the league right now from a fan base/attendance standpoint. Both teams are about to undergo massive rebuilds and landing these picks are only going to expedite that. Additionally it helps the NBA b/c the new lottery style didn’t reward the teams who blatantly tanked (Knicks, Bulls, Suns,) to try and secure the first pick.

      I know this is UK site (and I’m a UK fan), but c’mon trying to say Zion is another Julius Randle? I hope I’m missing the sarcasm in that part.

      “The Lakers lack the pieces to put together an attractive offer” are you serious? Their pick is only 1 pick behind the Knicks. The Lakers have as many if not more unproven high lottery pick guys on their roster than the Knicks do. So what gives the Knicks an early edge. The 3rd pick?

    I would argue that the Knicks and Lakers franchises have been bigger disasters over the past decade then the Pelicans. Aside from being big market teams they don’t have a whole lot going for them.

      Agree. It’s not in Davis’ interest to go to either place.

      Obviously, he just wants out of NO. Can’t blame him as it’s like living in a steam bath 9 months of the year and the state bird is the mosquito…

    Not sure RJ Barrett is very enticing for the Pelicans. He and Zion barely made the sweet 16 together in college. Their chemistry is like oil and water!

    Duke sux!! Hahahahahaha NBA can suck on it. Two Randles…lol great comparison. Lmao Do you A.D. Go Cats!

    As a grizzlies fan, i am so glad we got pick #2. I may eat my words on Zion, but until he commits to getting an nba body, i prefer Ja. That being said, Memphis hasn’t picked yet and given their history who knows who they are going to pick.

    1. UKLugo

      Ja gonna be a bust. Better grab Barrett.

    2. 4everUKblue

      Funny, all the real experts pick Ja over Barrett, maybe you’re in the wrong line of work.

    Zion Williamson>Julius Randle. Sorry. Still may not be good enough. But he is better.

    1. 4everUKblue

      Time will tell, Randle is pretty good and he’s definitely not better than AD.

    2. Smyrna_Cat

      Zion is a hype machine. Randle is a man. We will see.

    3. 4everUKblue

      Exactly! Zion is good within 2 feet of the rim.

    AD is overrated. He is not going to lead any team to an NBA title unless he serves in a complimentary role. He certainly hasn’t made the Pelicans any better.

      Put the crack pipe down and seek professional help. Might need a psych eval while you’re at it.
