New Orleans Pelicans are Facing Expectations Like Never Before

The New Orleans Pelicans are coming off a season in which they defied expectations by making the NBA playoffs, but also surpassed them in performance. In Brandon Ingram, a player has emerged who is not just a star, but someone who can be counted on in the playoffs. And mind you, it all happened while Zion Williamson was injured. Expectations for the offseason are higher than ever.

This team is experiencing a media onslaught of expectations they’ve never faced before. But can you blame the media and fans? From Brandon Ingram to Zion to Herb Jones and even CJ, you want to see what this team can do. They showed no fear last year and nearly beat the suns. They add Williamson to the mix and boom expectations.

Even though expectations are high in the league, I think the Pelicans will live up to them. See, if I think they’re going to win the NBA championship, I can’t say. However, I believe this team is in the top 6 in the Western Conference. I think they have a chance of really making a deep playoff run, and if the chips drop right, maybe more. This team is built for success. Now it’s up to head coach Willie Green to integrate Zion Williamson into what they built last year.

The key for me will be how Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson work. I think it’s possible they’re a great 1-2 hit, but it will come down to them. Having a vet like CJ McCollum helps tremendously as he can help smooth this process. Also, can Zion defend himself better than the last time we saw him? Coach Green demands defensive excellence and in order for that to happen, Zion needs to shop.

The season is less than a month from launch and as we get closer, more will be revealed about this team. And I’m excited to see how far the pelicans get this year.
