      All I got to say is if KD leaves AD you come and play for GS and join a dynasty and be the new NBA great player. and get yourself some championships so everyone can hate on you but will validate you as being in the running for the goat.

        We don't care if he's want to play or don't. Pelicans will win one. We don't need him. He wants to play with the warriors. Let him go.. Louisiana Strong!!! We get it out of the mud that's why its The BOOT. Rams against the Saints. LSU vs Texas a&m. LSU coach & student schandal. We will over come it all . Just watch! We the fans say to AD you all in or you all out!

                  Zion didnt want to come to the Pelicans all fake news!!!!!!!!!!!

                  Stop listen to media!!!

                  Thats the only reason people post trades like this, is because of media.

                  Yall want to talk about the Pelicans are a bad franchise an Zion should go to the LAkers or back to Duke or to the knicks???? Really

                  The LAkers had 4 top 5 picks in the NBA draft in the last 5 years!!!! In addition, they pick up Lebron James an still missed the playoffs every year 5 years straight!!!!

                  The Pelicans only had 1 pick in top 5 and made the playoffs twice despite the injuries!!!

                  The Pelicans are bad???!!! Yall out yall rabbit a$% mind!!!

                  Facts are Pelicans:

                  Have Zion

                  Have AD, Jrue, Julius

                  They also have David Griffin

                  Alvin Gentry as coach


                  They have new training staff a PResident ..

                  spent 4.6 million on a new training facility

                  THey making positive progress!!!

                  Zion will have fun and develop well in New Orleans, weather AD is traded or not!! MEdia need to stop hating!!!

                    Easy... trade LeBron for Zion!!! Zion don't want to play with AD. Pels want to keep AD. LeBron and AD want to play with each other. Griffin wants and needs to win now and keep AD. Lakers fans want to return to their youth movement. Palinka would be a God!!! Win/win situation!!!

                      What if the Knicks end up doing a 3 man trade and picking up free agents and they end up getting KD,AD, IRVING, AND KAWHI for just one year because all of that would be too expensive.

                                            I hope the Knicks don't overpay for AD in any trade proposal ,They did that once for Carmelo. If the Knicks sign Durant and Irving and draft Barrett along with all that young talent they have I'd be very happy.

Then they go to KD who they've been trying to push out from day one!
                                              Look I hope KD stays in GS & I hope LeBron James gets no one doesn't he make everyone better around him!

                                                    if the Bucks win, it will change it back to a collection of role players winning with one star drafted by the organization and developed. Giannis came in the league in 2013 and averaged 7 points his first year and 12 points his 2nd. In today's NBA instant gratification, Giannis would have been traded his 1st of 2nd year for low production. But the Bucks built the right way. Now 6 years later, if the Bucks win with just Giannis and a collection of role players (some of which can become stars from winning), they will put the league on notice to stop star chasing and build teams from the bottom up (draft and player development), not the top down (star stacking). The Warriors with Steph/Klay/Draymond were bottom up. The added Kevin but the core of their team was already there to establish chemistry over time. Teams with the best chemistry win whereby teams stacking may never develop chemistry as they try to rush a championship overnight.

How do the Pelicans get the number one pick but the Lakers continue to get all their trade deals blocked with big stars from CP3 to AD. Then you have teams much worse than than the Pelicans but they don’t get the chance to improve with a top pick? That just doesn’t seem alike the way to keep your league competitive
