WWL-TV's sports team on the Pelicans players to watch this season


We asked the WWL-TV sports team: Which Pelicans player will you be watching this season, and why?


Bradley Handwerger
Jrue Holiday: This young All-Star's stats aren't much better than Greivis Vasquez's, but stats don't play the game. Holiday's calm presence could open the floor for Tyreke Evans, Eric Gordon, Anthony Davis and Ryan Anderson if all goes well.


Bryan Salmund
Tyreke Evans. Despite his lowest output in points per game in 2012, his field goal percentage both inside and outside the arc was the best of his career. Without having to shoulder the offensive load, look for Evans to play with a chip on his shoulder to prove he's still that guy.


Juan Kincaid
Eric Gordon, and how he responds to being the third most important player on the court, behind Jrue Holiday and Anthony Davis.


Doug Mouton
Sports Director

Anthony Davis, who I think is closer than many think he is to becoming an NBA superstar. His development is the single most important thing to the long-term success of the franchise, and he's fun to watch.
