Kendrick Perkins on why the pelicans have the best chances of getting the eighth seed in the west
Former NBA champion and current analyst Kendrick Perkins believes the New Orleans Pelicans have the best chance of finishing 8th in the Western Conference at the end of the regular NBA season. The pelicans became one of the five teams in the west that are behind the top 8 and were selected to resume the season in Orlando.
One of the reasons why Perkins prefers New Orleans is their schedule. The current 10th seed will compete against Utah Jazz, the Los Angeles Clippers, the Memphis Grizzlies, the Sacramento Kings, the Washington Wizards, the San Antonio Spurs, the Sacramento Kings and the Orlando Magic.
“In my opinion, the pelicans have the simplest schedule of all teams. They have been able to rightly succeed, ”said Perkins. “When you look at this Yoggn Pelicans team, this talented team, you have one of the most underrated back places in the league. Lonzo Ball, which is finally starting, not only lives up to the LaVar ball hype, but also to the number 2 pick hype. Then you have an underestimated man in Jrue Holiday who could give you 20 points at one end and lock you up at the other end.
Then you have an experienced veterinarian who has never missed the playoff shooter in JJ Redick that belongs to this team. All along the line, for the first time you have an All-Star, one of the league’s most successful goal scorers in Brandon Ingram. Who has become one of the best closers in the NBA? And guess who you have in color down there. Box office Zion Williamson. This child is a stallion, he is 1: 1, he is a generation talent. One thing about Zion, yes, it gives us the highlights and it gives us the monster numbers. But he plays winning basketball. He makes competitions.
I think the New Orleans Pelicans are the team that best fits the eighth seeds of the Western Conference and they have the talent and the players to do it, ”Perkins concluded.
