NBA: Anthony Davis Does What Anytime He Sees A Homeless Person?

Anthony Davis is quickly becoming a fan favorite throughout the entire league for the way he goes about the game and the way he carries himself off of it. He plays the game with all out effort, you never see him talking trash and you never hear him involved in any nonsense off the court. He seems to be a young man with a good head on his shoulders and the right people keeping him on the straight path. So when he tells a story about what he does when he sees homeless people, it should be no surprise. Hit the jump.


NBA: Pelicans Lose Jrue Holiday For the Rest of the Season

The New Orleans Pelicans have been without starting point guard Jrue Holiday for about the last six weeks and Friday came news he won’t be available until next season. Shay Marie Holiday’s stress fracture in his right tibia was not healing well enough, so Friday he had surgery to fix the issue. Since Holiday has been out, head coach Monty Williams has started Brian Roberts at point guard and he will stay in the spot for the duration of the season. “I talked to Brian about that weeks ago that he’s got to step his leadership up and understand the pressure that goes with being the night in, night starter,” Williams told The Times-Picayune. “He’s done a really good job.” Roberts is set to become a free agent in July and he has likely guaranteed a new contract from the Pelicans, which is the right move. The Pelicans are currently 23-35 with the 12th spot in the Western Conference and likely not heading for the playoffs. ESPN

NBA:(Photo) The Ugliest Team Name In Sports History Is Now Official!

I am still asking myself who thought this was a good idea. Why change the team name after all these years anyway. The New Orleans Hornets have been the Hornets ever since they moved from Charlotte many years ago. Now it is official. The New Orleans Pelicans are here to stay! Some of you might disagree but I think it is one of the ugliest names for a team in professional sports. It makes it even worse that the team sucks. Maybe if they played better the name wouldn’t come off so ugly. The team official website was updated yesterday as the new name went into effect. How do New Orleans fans feel about it? They better start winning some games soon.
