This is going to be an entirely different @PelicansNBA
franchise next season: #1 pick (Zion), whatever Nola trades AD for, new GM, Jrue Holiday as the locker room leader & an incredibly large chip on the shoulders of the team and city.... Can we start playing now? #nola #DoItBig
Can New Orleans keep Anthony Davis with Zion Williamson?
Think about this potential starting lineup:
PG - Elfrid Payton (UFA)
SG - Jrue Holiday
SF - Zion Williamson
PF - Anthony Davis
PF - Julius Randle
This would be wild. Just wild.
He won’t do it but Kevin Durant should sign in New Orleans.
Griffin said Jrue reached out to him and expressed a lot of excitement about Pelicans winning the lottery.
Zion and Jrue is going to be SO BADASS
Griffin: "We've heard from several guys on the team who are excited, Jrue chief among them. He reached out to both coach and I personally"
David Griffin: "We've heard from several guys and I think people are genuinely excited -- and Jrue chief among them. Jrue reached out to both coach and I directly. I think he is truly bought in at a level that you wish all great players would be to what we're trying to build."
“All-time bad shooter”
This year, Lonzo Ball had as good or a better 3P% than
Kyle Kuzma https://t.co/9fzFXLtNnI
David Griffin says that ages and timelines of players do matter. However, what makes Jrue Holiday special is that he's all about winning. Age isn't as significant as the thought process...This draft gives an opportunity to find like minded individuals as Jrue.
If it is feasible:
+LeBron gets the center and GM he wants, plus Jrue Holiday. Instant contention for a guy on a career clock.
+Pelicans franchise gets a chance to become viable.
+Lakers get to really dream big with a crazy promising homegrown young team.
Stay in New Orleans, Anthony Davis. I beg you. Say no to the bright lights of Los Angeles & New York. Stay with Zion, Jrue & put your faith in David Griffin & Alvin Gentry to make things right in NO. Would be so great for the league. Fuck the big markets.
I don’t expect Anthony Davis to change his tune, but man Zion + Jrue + AD is a formidable defensive lineup. They could blow up ALL of the pick and rolls.
Ok, let’s get crazy:
— Lakers get Zion and salary filler. LA gets a generational star, starts fresh with NBA’s best young core.
— Pelicans get LeBron. That persuades AD to re-sign. With Jrue Holliday, they immediately contend for a title.
My work is done for the night.
Já parou pra pensar
Se o Pelicans aceita aquele pacote insano do Lakers hoje teriam
E com a pick #1 Zion Williamson
E + a pick #4 pra gastar com quem quiser
Recusaram, agora os bostas celtas tem a #14 pra oferecer
Trade him for the 2nd or 3rd and then you get Ja Morant or RJ Barrett. Jrue would fit into the SG position.
Engage into the Lakers' young core once again.
I’d love to see Jrue to Clips for Shea.. reunite Jrue and Sweet Lou
I haven’t enjoyed pelicans content this much since the sweep of Portland and we were calling Jrue Dame’s daddy and the owner of the Blazers😂
we worried bout causing defensive nightmares pairing zion with AD and jrue and niggas worried bout commercial appearances. NFL better
Zo, Jrue and Zion gonna be crazy together. Best defensive backcourt in the league and a top 3 pick and roll threat
On god zion jrue and ad in one team is deadly
Opplever vi tidenes snuoperasjon av AD? Plutselig var det moro i NO? Og er NO plutselig kandidat for en WCF, med Sion/Jrue/Randle/AD (eller den store pakken de får for AD, feks Tatum og Hayward ++)?
I Knicks chi hanno di decente? Se a NOLA dai la pick, Knox e Robinson...
Nola secondo me si fa: Jrue, RJ, Knox, Zion, Robinson. Per niente male, per niente proprio.
Suns are a bit more desperate for competence, and Jrue would really help to that end. Even if some of the same logic applies to them.
Do you imagine the #Pels starter with A.D / Zion Williamson / J.Randle and Jrue Holiday !!! 😱😱😱😱😱 #NBA #Draft
Era tão bom que os pelicans ficassem com o Ingram, kuzma (ou lonzo) e a pick 4 pelo AD
PG- Jrue Holiday
PF- Zion Williamson
C- Julius Randle
Mais a 4th pick que não faço puta de ideia com quem vão ficar
Ik heb dat altijd stiekem gehoopt. AD-Zion zou een heerlijk moderne front court zijn. Maar @ShamsCharania
liet al blijken dat dat niet het geval zou zijn.
Met een goeie trade, heb je naast Jrue-Zion wel in één keer een nieuwe basisvijf voor volgend seizoen.
If Pels had’ve taken our deadline offer they would now have a core of Zion, Jrue, BI, Kuz, Zo, Hart, Julius (possibly) and one of Culver/Hunter/Garland
Let the lakers give up 70% of that plus that 4 pick for AD and watch how loaded Zion team will be immediately. Yeah it’ll be ad Kemba and bron with a bunch of scrubs but NO will be like Jrue-JIMMY Butler-Zion-Kuz-Randle-Ingram-Okafor-Culver-Hart, etc etc etc lololol Gentry GOLDEN
4ème choix des Lakers -> Anthony Davis, reconstruire autour de Jrue, le 1er choix et le 4ème. Pour moi ça serait le mieux. Après à voir quel sera le choix des Lakers.
D’Angelo Jrue Zion Tatum 😎😎 Let’s gooooooo 😂
When we run out next season with kyrie, jrue, zion, lebron, Ad >>>>>
If I knew AD was staying I would go ahead and draft Ja Morant. Zion and Julius Randle are really the same player. Move Jrue to the 2 guard. That’s a top 5 seed in the West
But a healthy trade package in return for AD changes that quite a bit, no? Especially considering Jrue has at least 3 years left in his prime.
Everything you know about Jrue is wrong.
Νομίζω ότι μπορούν να πάρουν κάτι πολύ καλό για τον Jrue, από ομάδα που θέλει να πρωταγωνιστήσει, πολύ καλός παίκτης.
I know ppl want to salvage the AD relationship to pair him with Zion & Jrue but the hell with him and his ungrateful attitude.....he’s gotta go.
Locke’s podcast assessment of Jrue and his lack of even decent 3-pt shooting made me want him a lot less. :(
Πιστεύεις ταιριάζει με το timeline του Jrue?
The worst thing about Zion going to the smoothie king arena he can already see his career in the future
It’s AD and tryna team up with Jrue Holiday to try and make the playoffs for 5 years before you get traded cause they can’t put pieces around you
Hate to see it
@jerry25a @CapA1408 @Lakers
Pelicans got no wings. Tatum and brown seals the deal but irving has to resign. Jrue brown tatum zion nasty. But i think kyrie is gone. Celtics still have bright future with tatum and brown. Horford hayward ect
I can get not trading Jrue, but unless AD is staying and Zion is adding 15 wins to the team...you might have to trade him. https://t.co/XvCmJYbvWJ
Après les pels peuvent partir sur un 5 majeur :
Randle ( Meme si il y a peu de chance quil prenne son option)
Pour eux ça va
NBA lotto should be worst three teams only, rest should be in order of win/loss/tiebreaker. For a 33 win team with Jrue Holiday and Anthony Davis to get the first overall pick is fucking bullshit
No crees que van intentar mover a Jrue? Yo creo que querrán empezar de 0, buenas ofertas no les van a faltar y Zion para empezar
Point being, I’d rather have an out of the box NBA star in NO than Zion. Luka/Jrue/Moore/AD/Randle is a top 4 seed.
There's 10 years between the two. By the time Zion becomes a championship-level player (or if he does) Jrue will be well out of his prime.
Flip him for players who line up.
@LucxsM9 @DavidDuPanda @TrashTalk_fr
Bah la t’as une base d’équipe carrément solide avec Jrue et de bons rôle players autour et soit AD qui résigne a cause de lui soit une contrepartie avec un joueur au moins très fort donc tu peux vite avoir une bonne équipe aussi hein
Equally bad. Pels have a worse fanbase, Phoenix is worse managed. The only assets the Pels have atm are Jrue Holiday and ADs dwindling trade value. Just having Booker/Ayton on the Suns makes it a better landing spot
Davis has said otherwise but I would love to see Jrue, Zion, and AD play together. Tons of defensive versatility with unique skill-sets on offense.
Pels could roll out:
That’s a W
They should just rebuild. It's not gonna take forever. They have an unexpected first pick aka Zion who has amazing potential. And they could also get Great pieces to accelerate a rebuild by trading AD and Jrue holiday. Easy 1-2 year rebuild. Beats convincing a guy who won't stay.
Pelicans drafting Zion to play alongside Jrue and AD and still can’t see them making playoffs
NO trades AD to LA for Kuz Hart #4 next year's 1st (and cap filler)
Then NO trades the #4 and Jrue to NY for #3 to draft RJ
Zion gonna make that big of a difference, huh? Bc I saw Jrue + AD face GSW in multiple series and they could not blow up ANY of the pick and rolls.
pat bev zion and jrue all have the best motors sign bev pls
The prospect of getting Zion in New Orleans, especially when teamed with Jrue Holiday (and potentially AD, if he wants to stay) only makes this year's free agency more interesting. Being a Pelican fan it's never dull.
But add one more player like a kemba. Then they will be better off than these blazers. Zion jrue plus asset from davis trade
AD might not stay but man Zion + Jrue + AD is a formidable defensive lineup. They could blow up ALL of the pick and rolls.
I really like do like Jrue but that $$ amount just rings a bit too heavy in the aggregate for what a team might look at him for.
I think there are plenty of teams he fits on for sure ball-wise- but I think a lot of teams are getting smarter about not paying in this range.
