    Should the Pelicans trade Anthony Davis?

      Yea they have nothing else going on. Plus a.d. isn't going to make the Knicks a playoff team. Perhaps they can relive the exciting times when Stoudemire was in NYC. The excitement was in the air during that time.

      Fucc naw. Kniccs should just build with the young guys, fly under the radar, and develop. RJ said personally he wants to be a knicc, if they get AD we lose all our young guys. #PiccRJ

        How in this green earth could you possibly say Zion has more upside than Anthony Davis? You are on drugs sir. In a year you’ll be screaming the loudest you can about how Zion is on the brink of being a bust, he’s a poor mans Blake Griffin, he’s a better version of chunky Eddie Curry it seems. No jumper, left hand heavy, and damn near 300 lbs at age 19? Sounds like Shawn Kemp all over again. Barrett is a legitimate NBA scorer in his first year & Ja Morant is a newer version of Russ with better knees...

            If the Knicks are to trade for the Pelicans, I think they would have to draft a point guard, not RJ Barret. This isn't college. Zion and Barret did not win at title at the College Level so what's the need in pairing them? David Griffin will be looking for the perfect players to maximize Zion's talent not to have as a friend. I think the Lakers will trade Darius Garland (4th pick) or Lonzo to the Pelicans to have the point guard to improve Zion's game. The Knicks don't have any point guards for this move unless they draft Ja Morant who more likely goes to Memphis or Darious Garland (projected as a Laker pick). And the Lakers can easily provide Kuz or Brandon Ingram who are both proven more than Barret.  DSJ doesn't appear to be a good assist guy but more of a shooting guard.

                  WTF.. Kuzma? Has a very low ceiling?? Ya sure about that huh? Well Dont be shock if Lonzo,BI, KUZ & 4th Pick(who ever it is) develop into a allstar level players and win NBA Finals like GSW now. & In a few years Y'all be talking like "WHAT IF THE NOLAP ACCEPT THE LAKERS TRADE OFFER FOR AD??" And I Be Like: SMFH Now you talking about that trade Now Huh?? Like "What if the Cha. Hornets never traded Kobe to LA segment??"

                  -All we need is Lonzo to stay Healthy & Learn from JKidd Next Season, BI- to Stay Healthy & gain some muscles & I Heard that Kuz is talking to Ron Artest on learning more about def. I'm actually Excited for Next Season.

                          Knicks trade WILL include 3rd overall pick, as well as other 1 st round picks. As well as Konx, Robinson, and Smith Jr. Don't try to be stingy with us Herd. We want it all and the lint in your pocket, Son!!!!!!!!!!!!

                              Pelicans should HELP THEMSELVES and TRADE AD to => Boston for J Brown/M Smart & the Celtics 3 first round picks.

                              Then TRADE => the NO 1 pick to NY KNICKS => for the 3rd pick, M Robinson and the Knicks second round pick

                              Then TRADE => the NO 3 pick and 2 second round picks => to the Cavs => for the 5th pick and Jordan Clarkson

                              Then the => PELICANS would be in SUPER GREAT SHAPE.....for a LONG LONG TIME !!!

                                @The Superhero Project Podcast ….I agree with you => but they shouldn't ! Boston should remember what they did w/o AD....w/o Kyrie Irving....and w/o Gordon Hayward just a little over a year ago....and tell the PELICANS to "STUFF IT" => I F => Tatum being part of the TRADE is the ONLY PATH/OPTION FORWARD !

                                It SHOULD be about WIN/WIN....not => I WIN BIG and YOU LOSE BIG......that makes NO SENSE to me !

                                RJ Barrett will leave the Pelicans in free agency once his rookie deal is done. There is no way he's going to want to be in Zion's shadow for the rest of his career. It's all fine and dandy now, best friends get to play with each other but it won't work.

                                Imagine the Miami Heat had drafted both D Wade and LeBron, it wouldn't have worked. It only worked because D Wade had already won his own title, made his own name and done his own things. He was ready to take the step back when Bron showed up in 2011. There is no way two young studs are going to say "I'll take a step back for you"

                                      Zion making the best choice. The State not only the city would love you. Go and grind let them build around you. Jordan, Dr.J LeBron had team build around them before they won championship. Trade with the Knicks and get a big man along with a veteran gaurd like Jimmy Butler

                                                  Yes I agree with you Colin. Zion should not prove his worth in the NBA and show everyone he can play in a bigger better league and sit his first year out. You have lost all my respect, I don’t even think you care for anything in sports except the Knicks (the shittiest franchise in the league) deserves AD, kyrie, KD, and Zion😂😂

                                                                        gather them in a room, sit them in a round table and talk to them, they'll know once they all see each other, if they bounce they not good for a chip run since they care more for money than a very potential ring.
