Is the New Orleans Pelicans the worst team in the NBA?
An interesting tidbit to ponder in the wake of New Orleans’ loss to the Miami Heat: The Pelicans are the worst NBA team in NBA history.
This is, after all, the franchise that was founded by the most famous basketball legend in the world, LaMarcus Aldridge, who played for the New York Knicks from 1996 to 2001.
In fact, the only other team that had a worse record in the franchise’s history was the Los Angeles Lakers, who won a franchise-record 105 games.
And, as far as the NBA goes, it has never won more than 67 games.
So, yes, the Pelicans are in bad shape, but so are the teams that came before them, and that’s because they were bad.
While the Heat were the worst franchise in NBA franchise history in 2017-18, the Lakers were the most bad.
The Pelicans had a losing record in 2017 before getting swept by the Bulls on Thursday night, and then fell to the Spurs in overtime on Sunday.
That was a very bad night for the Pelicans, who are still trying to get over the hump of a disappointing season.
It was an unfortunate season for the franchise, which has not won a playoff series since the 2008-09 season.
The Lakers are currently a team that is not even in the playoff race.
In 2017-19, the team was 0-4.
It’s been a long, long time since the Lakers won a game.
Now that the team is on the outside looking in, the question is, will the Pelicans be able to replicate the greatness of those years?
While the Pelicans lost a lot of key pieces this offseason, including their starting five, the biggest change was the acquisition of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, who was a star player for years in the league.
He was a key piece for the Lakers in the first half of the 2016-17 season, but after that he went into a slump and then his performance plummeted.
He has since rebounded nicely, but there is no denying that his career was a complete and utter disaster.
The team had a lot to be happy about this offseason.
It added a star to its roster and has brought in some very high-level talent.
The addition of Kidd-Gillchrist, however, could be one of the biggest mistakes of the team’s tenure.
This isn’t to say that the Pelicans will be completely healthy next season.
But, as with any rebuild, there will be bumps along the way.
The first step in a rebuild is to get a new GM, and this is a very big step for the organization.
The NBA is changing, and new teams and new stars are entering the league with the league at an all-time low.
In the past, new teams were able to find a stable franchise and rebuild it to the point where they were competitive.
Now, the NBA is more fluid and teams can go through a few iterations.
New franchises don’t have the luxury of time to figure out what to do with their players.
A rebuild has to be done by July 1 of the next season, which means that the first step is to find someone who can be a consistent franchise player, and the Pelicans have the perfect candidate to do that.
So far, it appears that the organization has identified the right person to help the Pelicans succeed.
Jordan Clarkson is a veteran of four NBA seasons who has been an NBA All-Star in each of his five years with the team.
Clarkson had a great season for Washington in 2016-19.
He averaged 15.4 points, 8.3 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and 1.5 steals per game.
He also averaged 15 rebounds per game while shooting 44.4 percent from the field and 44.3 percent from three-point range.
His ability to play both forward positions is what will be a huge asset for the team this season.
With his ability to shoot from outside, Clarkson will provide an offensive spark off the bench that will make the Pelicans more dangerous from the perimeter.
If he can keep his shooting numbers up and he’s able to take advantage of the talent around him, he will be one heck of a defensive player.
He will be able provide some solid depth at both forward spots.
In addition, Clarkson has shown he can make plays for himself in the pick and roll and the isolation.
In his three seasons with the Washington Wizards, Clarkson averaged 15 points per game on 45 percent shooting from the floor and 39.5 percent from 3-point distance.
Clarkson also averaged 5.8 rebounds per contest, and 3.6 assists per contest.
While he will still have to work on his perimeter shooting, he is a solid player who can make some solid plays in the paint for the Jazz.
He is also a versatile offensive player who will help the Jazz out offensively.
Jordan Hill, who the Pelicans traded to the Pelicans in the offseason, will help out the
