As per usual, with the help of our listeners, Adam and Dan rap about the 10 most impactful players to wear a Pelicans—or Hornets—jersey since the 2010-11 season. Longevity obviously boosted certain standings, but with the number of high-profile players to spend abbreviated stints in New Orleans, it begs the question: Do Chris Paul, Zion Williamson and David West all make the cut?

NBA Necessity

Dan and Adam (along with the many other guests) always give tremendous insight into the NBA world. Would highly recommend the series that they’ve been doing on top-10 players for each franchise over the past decade. Can’t speak highly enough about the podcast!

Quincy Pondexter ,

chemistry matters!

While heavily relying on statistics, this nba pod isn't dry or boring, the hosts have good chemistry and it's an enjoyable listen

In-Depth NBA talk

This is my go to for in-depth NBA talk. Sometimes a tad unpolished but these guys live and breathe the NBA and it comes through on the pod.
