This season has not gone well for Alvin Gentry in New Orleans. His Pelicans are not a playoff team, and they’ve had to endure the Anthony Davis trade saga for much of the season.
It’s a disappointing turn of events for the Pelicans, who swept the Portland Trail Blazers in the first round of the playoffs last year. Things should have been looking up this season in New Orleans, but it was not to be.
The dust has settled on the Davis talk, and now Gentry is just trying to get through the end of the season. The Pelicans have won three games in a row, including a gutsy 3-point victory over the Utah Jazz on Mar. 4.
As such, Gentry deserves a little much-needed R&R. Apparently he took some time to himself before addressing reporters on Monday night.
Alvin Gentry is all of us, just a little boozy after a Monday night NBA game. Welcome to the club, Al.
