If the Pelicans want to be a playoff team, Jrue Holiday has to start playing like he’s part of a big three instead of like there’s a big two and he’s the third, vestigial and useless, wheel. That is my take on the matter. 34 points is a start, but it’s just that: a start. He needs to start doing this consistently. Other options for the Pelicans becoming a playoff team:
-Have Omer Asik win his personal battle against Crohn’s and form the “Triplet Towers” with Davis and Cousins.
-Injure Stephen Curry and take the Warriors’ playoff spot. Wait! They already did that! Excellent!
-Drink a whole bunch of smoothies. Might not win them any extra games, but the Smoothie King will be pleased.
-Reacquire Chris Paul.
-Fire Gentry. His ass has been on the hot seat for so long that I’m surprised he can still walk.
