Haha so much for the a Knicks trading Zion to the Pels. They got him anyway and didn’t have to give up AD. Knicks get Knickier.

On a side note; CLE didn’t get the Lebron leaving prize again. Maybe the lottery isn’t fixed?

Agreed tanking isnt going to work like it did in the past and that means teams will be forced to be competitive which they should be because they are in the entertainment business.

Nice get for the Pelicans. That said, the lines to David Griffin will be burning up the likes of which we have never seen :D.

Nothing to do with the Knicks going public about the trade they would offer if they won the draft lottery I'm sure.

It wasn't the reason for the Knicks going public with that information either.

LOL at the Lakers? They had a 1% chance of getting the first pick. The universe smiled on them today. They were headed for the 11th pick and got the 4th.

Good consolation prize handed to Pels by NBA for the whole AD debacle and his pending departure. LOL makes it even nicer is Knicks, Lakers, Celts not getting Zion either. Plus Cavs didn't get the lebron left you #1 pick wink wink prize

New Orleans and Memphis are both great cities so I’m not sure I understand your apathy here.

Feeling REALLY REALLY sorry for a talented, young athlete who is about to become very, very rich seems like a stretch. I could think of 1-2 people who might deserve more sympathy than Zion tonight. Maybe even 3.
I don't want to say we're dysfunctional. But we need to be more functional.

New Orleans is probably the worst nba town in the nba.

It’s sad
I feel bad for Zion

The pelicans have no fans
None

I dare a single pelican fan on realgm to call me out.

Every team sells out for the playoffs.... but there are definitely NBA teams with less support than NOP. The Nets had the worst attendance record this season and they were a playoff team in the largest NBA market... now that's crazy! (It doesn't help that their ticket prices are ridiculous!)
