    Ehhhhhh... Doesn't seem all that likely we get Lowry now. Miami and Philly getting some heat going in that race.

    Which I'm okay with, but we really don't know what Indy wants for Brogdon. So, this is a whole nother aspect to this that may also be impossible.

    Rumor us to have Dinwiddie as an option. Which isn't ideal, but okay.

    I really hope Brogdon isn't crazy expensive to trade for, but at the same time. He's a top 20 Point Guard that probably gonna be top 10 in a few years. Unless they want 3 picks and a player... He's worth dropping a couple of protected picks, but you gotta try to haggle them down to a good deal.

    It's because the Suns and its a copycat league, but the copycat don't ever do shyt. So, I'm ready to be disapointed.

    But still... We would always have to offer him a max to get him to come here, because we aren't appealing. When we got Philly and Miami. We could offer him a max and he'd probably play on a pay cut to play elsewhere that's a real contender.

    Chris Paul has made GMs looking to replicate his success with the Suns. Vet star PG that will propel a young team.

    Twitter is going crazy over this and I just don't understand. I'd rather Graham on cheap than Lonzo. fukk the draft pick too, we in win now mode.

    The Pelicans have become a punching bag for the national media but we have no one to blame but ourselves i guess.

    People keep changing what's wrong with the Pelicans.

    First it's Adams poor spacing..."OMG Ya'll LOST HIM FOR NOTHING #FREEZION"

    Then Lonzo is overrated and where paying too much for bums..."OMG HE WAS ZION'S FAV (even thought that didn't stop him from being unhappy) #ZIONTONY"

    Then when didn't have enough shooting and our shooting state were fungazi, so we sign Graham "OMG YA"LL COULDN'T GET Lowry or Beal (I legit saw this on Twitter just now) ZION HAS NO HELP!!!"

    Graham is a tough 3 point shot maker who shot exactly same as Lonzo on same volume, so he's better in that regard. With that being said Pelicans biggest need was to have a guard who can playmake inside and Graham has never shot 40% in his career. People are making fun because you don't give up assets for guys like Graham. Griffin did this with Adams too. If I told you that you went from Lowry to a player who shoots worse than Lonzo and Bledsoe overall, you would not be happy especially if you gave up a pick. Griffin is putting a lot of NAW and Kira's plate, its up to them to respond.

    Winning cures all.

    Griff better find a way to field a contending team and the pressure also needs to be on Zion and Ingram. No more of that "growth" bullshyt.

    So, as it stand... Everything looks pretty incomplete or bad without context. fukk all about Lonzo, tho. Glad he's gone, but it's not addition by subtraction. Team did get worse and the team made a lateral move at best. There are big holes at PF, bench, and uncertainty of versatility. I hope we get something going.

    The biggest clear indicator is that if you care about defense. Griff ain't giving a fukk about that. It's all about scoring. Almost feels like we reverting back to Gentry days, but luckily... We won't play super small.

    Bruh, Grahams is an undersized, streaky SG at best. No defense, straight turnstiles

    Zion better get ready for a new city soon… these cats not even trying to win at this point
