The Bird Calls Podcast Ep: 45: Discussing the Jrue Holiday woes and the Pelicans inability to sustain momentum

Several themes have emerged in the early goings. We go in-depth on two of them.

NBA: New Orleans Pelicans at Los Angeles Lakers Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

Brendon Kleen of Bourbon Street Shots and Justin Jett of Pelican Debrief joined me to talk about the state of the Pelicans after the first two games of the season. Although New Orleans started was unable to notch a victory against the Grizzlies and Warriors, don’t look at Anthony Davis nor DeMarcus Cousins — they’ve been incredible!

No, the problems lie elsewhere.

We go in depth on several of the biggest topics sitting at the forefront of all minds: the befuddling continuous struggles of the richest man in New Orleans — Jrue Holiday — and the puzzling offensive breakdowns that seem to ensnare the Pelicans every game for long stretches.

Other topics include the staying power of Jameer Nelson over Rajon Rondo, Alvin Gentry, as well as predictions for upcoming contests against the Portland Trailblazers and Sacramento Kings.
