Jaxson Hayes on what he's focused on during hiatus: "I’ve been working on my shot a lot and my handle. Little details when it comes to defense, being in the right spot and doing the right things. I know it’s hard to simulate that without playing five-on-five."
- All NBA Teams
Alvin Gentry on Jaxson Hayes' learning curve: "It’s a situation where you’re going to get to the finish line – you just may not get there as quickly as you’d like. He’s going to be a terrific player. Obviously there are some things he has to learn. That’s all going to come."
Nickeil Alexander-Walker said he's spent time during hiatus watching Manu Ginobili tape. NAW noted Manu's "craftiness, his speed, his change of pace. He was a great player. Just trying to pick up as much as I can from him." NAW also watching tape of other old-school players
Nickeil Alexander-Walker said he asked one of the Pelicans film guys to put some clips of Manu Ginobli together for him to watch during the time away.
Nickeil Alexander-Walker says he watched Manu Ginobli film during the hiatus. He likes Ginobli's craftiness.
Alvin Gentry says Nickeil Alexander-Walker is completely recovered from a right wrist fracture. Gentry says he's had good practices. He has talked to NAW about being patient to get his turn.
I don't think any administration would have been fully prepared for COVID, but none would have been worse than this. There is absolutely no reason other than ego, power, greed, and other BS that things have gotten to this degree
Planning out some livestreams (on YouTube) in the near future. Might pop on live for a few minutes to text my internet/settings at some point this week.
Golf is the worst sport imaginable. Idk who the hell invented it
Locked on Pelicans will be back to 5 days a week starting tomorrow! Things are still slow so I'll be able to answer your question in gbe pod. What do you want to hear about??? pic.twitter.com/Nr0C7yUPIC
JJ Redick comes thru on his bet 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 pic.twitter.com/FsNQgjWRrQ
"He’s one of the best, if not the best, wing rebounders that I’ve ever seen."
Josh Hart has gobbled up a higher % of rebounds than any player 6-foot-5 or under this season. He plays bigger than he is. Alvin Gentry will put him just about anywhere. nola.com/sports/pelican…
I used to think that KDB was the best assister in the Prem. I was wrong....David Luiz is
Josh Hart says he had a wine fridge delivered to his room that can hold around 15 bottles.
Very on-brand for him.
Josh Hart said he had a wine fridge delivered to his room. The necessities.
Woj needs to make an Only Fans during his suspension
JJ Redick didn't expect for his post to be retweeted 10K+ times, but he promises to shotgun that Bud Light. Look for an update around 5 pm.
JJ Redick confirms he will indeed go thru with his wager and shotgun a beer on the golf course later today 🔥🔥🔥🔥
Alvin Gentry compared Josh Hart to a utility infielder. "He could play 2, 3, 4 for us." Hart spent a lot more time at the 4 this season than he did in LA, according to Basketball Reference's position estimator. pic.twitter.com/HvxvXAYGps
Alvin Gentry likened Josh Hart's role with #Pelicans to that of utility player, covering whatever team needs in different situations: "He can play (positions) 2, 3, 4 for us. He did a good job of giving us energy... he's very beneficial to our team because of his versatility."
Alvin Gentry said the Pelicans had their most intense practice since they arrived in Florida. "Best practice by far."
Alvin Gentry calling today's practice by far the best of Orlando thus far for the Pelicans. Was happy with both the defense and offense.
Alvin Gentry: "I think we had our best practice by far today."

Baby!!!! (Youngboy voice)
I’ve reached the point of actually being excited for NBA games...rather than just gnashing my teeth over how they’re going to pull this off.
This bubble would be the perfect time to finish my ink
I’m at the point where I’m about to throw a golf in the water
Lonzo Ball said the quiet Pelicans will have to communicate inside the bubble because the conditions will demand it.
That and other notes from practice No. 2. nola.com/sports/pelican…
GO VOTE NEW ORLEANS!!!
(AND WEAR YOUR DAMN MASK)
Lonzo Ball on Brandon Ingram adding strength to his frame: "It's only going to improve his game. That's the only thing that's left, in my opinion. Everything else he can do at a very high level. He's already pretty much unstoppable. That's going to make him even harder to guard."
#Pelicans rank third in #NBA in assists per game (27.0) and led league in that category after Christmas (29.2). It's one stat that reflects the New Orleans chemistry that was continuing to build in March. Pels expect to carry that over to play in Orlando: on.nba.com/3gNG92J pic.twitter.com/wDs6UyfuCG

Alvin Gentry on #Pelicans defensive improvement and effectiveness when their starting center is in the lineup: "We got (Derrick Favors) healthy (in mid-December). When he’s healthy and on the floor, we are an elite defensive team (as measured) by stats."
Alvin Gentry said there will be virtual fans in the stands to make the games feel a little more normal.
Match day for my Blues!! #COYB
