During the Jazz game, I unfortunately got stuck with their homer announcers, and they put up a stat showing that Cousins/Davis, before Davis got hurt this past game I guess, were on a historic pace of accounting for the highest percentage of a team's points by a duo. I think it was 58% of the Pels points since the trade? In about half the games those guys are putting up 25 a piece and no other Pelican is in double figures. They can't shoot. They can't create. They might have the worst backcourt and bench in the league right now.
Anyway, it's clear at this point that Cousins and Davis, while a little ragged together because of lack of familiarity/practice, are not the problem. Everything else is. They are just pulling random guards off the street now. Its kind of funny. Jarret Jack hadn't played in more than a year, so they sign him. He immediately gets hurt, so they go dig up Jordan Crawford, who hasn't been in the NBA in 3 years. And he's immediately like their best guard since Jrue is playing drunk or something. I think they just added another D-leaguer too. There's just no team there right now. And IMO no coach either.
They've got two young superstars. That automatically gives them a better future than 75% of the teams in the league. But just watching them a few times since the trade and it's obvious that this is going to be a huge and hugely active offseason for them. I'm not at all sure their front office is up to it, but they really need a new coach, and an entire new SF/SG/PG rotation. Then offseason work, A training camp. Then maybe by the start of next season we'll finally see an actual team out there.
