Pelicans are now 0-3 since trading for DeMarcus Cousins. Concern? It has only been three games, and it will take time for everybody to get comfortable. End of the day, many were quick to crown the Pelicans as the number eight seed in the Western Conference. I was hoping the Pels would get the eighth seed, so they we could see how their size would matchup against the Warriors. At this point, the Pelicans are 3.5 behind the eighth seeded Nuggets with 22 games to play. Good news is they have three games left against the Nuggets; bad news is they have to jump four teams.
Pick it up Pelicans! Pick it up!
Stay away from number 1. Michael Carter-Williams wore number 1 and caught some heat, and now newest Bull Anthony Morrow is catching it too! Because of the heat, Morrow has decided to switch his jersey number.
I did not know D. Rose had this much love in Chicago!
The beef between Shaquille O’Neal and Javale McGee continues on. Now, Shaq is giving Kevin Durant the business too! Durant, who came out in defense of McGee, received a couple tweets from “The Diesel.”
The Philadelphia 76ers announced on Friday that rookie Ben Simmons is out for the year. According to the 76ers, Simmons foot is not completely healed.
I guess he is on the Nerlens Noel, Joel Embiid plan (both players did not play as rookies).
I guess the good news for Simmons is he is still eligible to win Rookie of the Year next season.
Do Philly fans still #TrustTheProcess?
Charles Oakley could not watch his Knicks in peace in New York, so he had to watch them in Cleveland. Unfortunately for Oak, he went home sad! The Knicks got beat down by the Cavaliers 119-104. Hopefully Oakley will go back to The Garden soon!
The 76ers finally traded a center, but it is not who you thought it would be. 76ers send Nerlens Noel to the Mavericks for Justin Anderson, Andrew Bogut and 2017 1st round pick(which is top 18 protected; can convert to two 2nd rounders).
Analysis: Bogut probably will be bought out. The Mavericks probably won’t make the playoffs, so the 1st rounder will convert to two 2nd round picks. The 76ers get some value for a player that they probably were not going to re-sign(Noel restricted free agent at end of the year), and the Mavericks get a young, shot blocking, athletic big in Noel. Maybe Noel helps the Mavericks make a playoff push.
NBA trade deadline has came and went. The best thing about the trade deadline sometimes are the deals that were not done. Here are a few:

According to The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Philadelphia 76ers have traded Ersan Ilyasova to the Hawks for Tiago Splitter and two second-round picks. Also, Wojnarowski is reporting that the 76ers and Bulls are still talking about a possible swap for Jahlil Okafor.
Hopefully there will be some big moves come Thursday!
