The Pelicans messed up not re signing Rondo and Cousins. That put the idea in Davis’s head that the Pelicans weren’t 100 percent committed to winning. He wanted to be a Pelican for a long time

the pels drop in standings and AD requests a trade.
the rockets were at 14th seed and just lost chris paul and eric gordon and all harden did was carry the rockets averaging 55 a game, to the 4th-5th seed while beating warriors, celtics, thunder, nuggets, spurs, lakers, raptors...

Wolves ruined KG career. Glad AD aint tryna go down the same road with Pels
can we talk about how being able to call Magic Johnson "Earvin" is one of Byron Scott's top 3 crowning achievements.
Draymond gonna be crying in the parking lot again.....
Let’s hope AD goes to LA so this non stop madness about potential free agents in La can stop for a while. Literally every week some new guy is coming to LA
Klutch Sports ,” if you want your agent all in the videos” “all in the media” call us.

So it’s the Pelicans fault Davis is not producing wins? He’s failed the Pelicans not the other way around. He’s not a franchise player. This trade request confirms that. He is a second best player on the team guy.

The Pelicans failed to put a cast around AD. They had 5+ years once finding out he was a true superstar.
