First thing was speculating on whether the Pelicans owner really cared about the team as much as the Saints. They also wondered how passionate fans in New Orleans were about the team, implying that it was much more a football team.
Simmons said if the Seattle investors group which wanted an NBA team offered $2 or $2.5 billion for the team, would she turn it down?
Second, they said AD may get frustrated if the team didn’t at least get to the WCF. Supposedly AD didn’t care that they swept Portland, since they lost in the next round. So if the Warriors or some other team beat them in the playoffs again, AD won’t sign that super max extension next summer.
Billsimon fellow knows less than I do. Why would I care what he thinks, he’s a good writer and b-ball historian but beyond that he knows nada.
