    this doesn’t solve NOLA’s center problem since Withey isn’t very good, but it’s a decent pickup.

    Which one is playing point guard?

    1) I was thinking the same thing. Davis can play point guard if he wanted to, but I don’t know about Withey as a shooting guard lol.

    So now it really stinks that they didn’t keep Nerlens. Much better pick.

    ESPN’s Marc Stein reporting that Tyreke Evans told New Orleans Pelicans that he would be willing 2 be 6th man if necessary.

    Jeff Withey you lucky sumbitch. You’re going to have a front row seat for watching AD next year. But don’t think he is going to be on the court much with AD period.

    Drew must be drunk
    Front or back, court?
    But, I like AD at point in the NBA!!!
    I bet he can do it….
    He is as good as Magic.

    Tallest backcourt in the history of EVER! I guess Eric Gordon will be playing the Center position?

    Withey, imo, is a decent backup. Pelicans have some shot-blocking power, but I agree with #5–they shouldve kept Nerlens.

    Drew is just posting to try and move Corey Nichols’ post further down the page and out of sight.

    What was the trash talk Withey had a while back? Seems like it was UK and NBA related.

    Those 2 will be the tallest backcourt in history!!! With them starting in the backcourt the Pelicans are guaranteed to have the number 1 pick in 2014. Hopefully they will get Andrew n Aaron Harrison to play the front court. Talk about scary!!!

    Wow, we need to do a “Caption This” contest for this picture. Withey looks kind of like the hillbilly from “Deliverance” in this picture – “You gotta purty mouth, boy”.

    Withey was the one that shut Davis down in the championship game.
    “Through 13 games last season, Anthony Davis had 58 blocks and 29 fouls. Through 13 games this season, Kansas center Jeff Withey has 68 blocks and only 16 fouls.”
    -Eamonn Brennan

    Davis was MVP of that championship game and what was the team outcome again???

    You’d think you’d catch that since it’s in the title. Almost as funny as the rednecks you all cater to’s comments sometimes. Seriously, get beisner back quickly.

    The Pelicans like to post up their back court players alot.

    Great watching this game again. Thanks for posting it up. #17 After watching that game I don’t see how you or anyone could say Withey “shut down” Davis. He defened Davis very well no doubt. But Davis owned the boards vs Withey had far more assists and steals, how many dunks and easy put backs did Withey miss. If Withey was a better player than Davis Kansas would have won. One could also make the argument that Withey got away with several fouls on Davis. Withey is a very fine player, but there was a reason Davis swept every National Player of the Year ward in 2012.
