The Bird Writes Podcast Ep. 1: Pelicans big road win in Boston bodes well

Jim Eichenhofer joins us as a special guest.

NBA: New Orleans Pelicans at Boston Celtics Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

After an exhilarating 116-113 Pelicans win in overtime against the Boston Celtics, Travis and Trevor welcomed writer, video master, and post-game radio call-in host Jim Eichenhofer to the podcast to talk about the wins in the gardens, the Pelicans playing to the level of their competition, grading AD, Cuz and Jrue and more!

Can the Pelicans turn their porous defense around? Jim thinks they may, especially if their overall play continues to trend upwards. The Pelicans’ next four games come against teams lacking superstars, including a game tonight in Atlanta. Heaven forbid this team play well against less talented teams; if they can win their next four, the Pels would get all the way up to 7 games above .500 and start thinking about seeding in the Western Conference playoffs.

Just how good is Anthony Davis and how much further does he need to advance his game? Jim offers some insights into AD’s career and skillset.

Jim Eichenhofer can be found on social media, but spent much of his career as a sportswriter, including ink in magazines like Hoop and SLAM. Simply put, nobody knows more about professional basketball in New Orleans since the Hornets came to town in 2002.

Jim even breaks down his MVP candidates, including newcomers like LeBron James and Kevin Durant. Trevor and Travis picked those two before the season!

Let’s go Pels!
