The Pelicans announce their new head coach today in an afternoon press conference. Let's talk about it!

A new era dawns in New Orleans today. At 3:30 pm (or later, because nothing in New Orleans worth doing actually starts on time) Alvin Gentry will officially be introduced as the head coach of the New Orleans Pelicans. As seen below, the press conference will be on Pelicans.com. Considering the relatively light work day around the NBA (complete with draft rumor mongering) there is a chance that it will also be available on NBA TV.

So, let's chat about it. Still down on the hiring after the staff has been (almost) completely announced? Excited to see New Orleans push the pace after being one of the slowest teams in the league for years? Interested if Gentry has a great story or two about Draymond Green during the victory parade in Oakland on Friday? What do you think Anthony Davis is going to average a game next year?
