Are you freakin’ kidding me? Both the New Orleans “Krewe” and New Orleans “Brass” sound infinitely more impressive and dominating than Pelicans. Pelicans just make me think of that so-so Grisham movie starring Oscar winners Julia Roberts and Denzel Washington.
He also won’t be traveling with the team, so the seriousness of his back is up for conjecture, or they’re cutting the vet a break and not making him travel. As a fan, you gotta just sigh, and remind yourself how little consequence you placed on Kidd’s play before this season started. Now I want him in every time Felton shoots a 20-footer that shirks its duty to fall through the cylinder. I forgot how good he’s gotten over the years at shooting from beyond the arc. He hasn’t shot under 34% from three since 2003.
The way Scalebrine spoke about Kidd during their time together in Jersey, his leadership role with the 2011 Mavericks, and his smarts for the Knicks through the season’s first two weeks almost makes up for that drunk driving arrest before the season started and his 39 year-old back. He can stay away from the Ole Grand Dad, but nobody gets away from Father time.
That piece on the "montaellisface" is probably the worst attempt at sports journalism I've ever read, and I read bleacherreport articles! Such obvious pseudo-profundity--it was really difficult to get through.
This has to be one my favorite messages of all time. Absolutely true. I blame hash.
