What makes the Smoothie King Center special?

The Smoothie King Center opened in 1999 as the home arena for the ECHL ice hockey team, the New Orleans Brass. The New Orleans Pelicans, formerly the Hornets, moved to New Orleans and the Smoothie King Center at the beginning of the 2002 season. The Smoothie King Center can hold just under 17,000 for Pelicans games. As recently as 2013, the Smoothie King Center underwent major upgrades in order to improve the overall gameday experience by upgrading suites and club levels, upgraded concessions, upgraded LED boards, and other amenities.

Who are some marquee players that have been a part of the New Orleans Pelicans team in the past?

The New Orleans Pelicans have only been in the New Orleans area since the 2002 season. Since then there have been few players that encompass what it truly means to be great, however, these players included Chris Paul and the current All-Star, Anthony Davis.

How have the New Orleans Pelicans performed historically?

Due to the short tenure that the franchise has had in the city of New Orleans, their success has been short lived. While the team experienced some success during Chris Paul’s tenure with the team, there was never an NBA Championship brought to New Orleans, nor a Conference Title, but just one Division Title in that time.

New Orleans Pelicans Details

New Orleans Pelicans Overview

The New Orleans Pelicans have certainly improved since officially joining the National Basketball Association (NBA) 13 years ago. Formerly the Hornets, the Pelicans were formed when the Charlotte Hornets moved from North Carolina.

The team has had an interesting history since moving to New Orleans, even having to relocate to Oklahoma City for two years following the destruction left by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

New Orleans, then known as the Hornets, kicked off their inaugural season in 2002 and surprisingly managed to make the Eastern Conference playoffs after compiling a record of 47-35. Despite their regular season success, the team was downed by the Philadelphia 76ers in the opening round of the playoffs, managing a pair of wins in the series.

Led by new head coach Tim Floyd, who replaced Paul Silas, the Hornets digressed to a record of 41-41, but still managed to nab the fifth seed in the Eastern playoffs. New Orleans was led by a young guard by the name of Baron Davis, who put together a solid campaign netting 22.9 points a game to go along with 7.5 assists. Veterans Jamal Mashburn and P.J. Brown were among a number of veterans to contribute significantly, as well.

Unfortunately, much like their first season, the Hornets exited early from the postseason, losing a seven game series to the Miami Heat in the first round.

Following the season, New Orleans moved over to the Western Conference during a series of geographical realignments in the NBA. Their first season out west proved to be eye-opening, as the Hornets record fell to 18-64, bottom in the conference and third-worst in the entire league.

Luckily, the futile record allowed the Hornets a valuable draft pick that was used to take Chris Paul. Paul’s first two seasons showed steady improvement and culminated in a third year that produced a 56-26 record, which was the best in team history. It would mark the only division title in the franchise’s brief history, also earning them the second seed in the Western Conference.

New Orleans improved on their previous playoff runs, but only made it to the conference semifinals before ending their run against the San Antonio Spurs.

The team remained mediocre for the next few years, making the playoffs twice in three years but never escaping the first round. Prior to the 2011-12 season, routine All-Star Chris Paul demanded a trade that left New Orleans in a state of turmoil.

Paul was eventually granted his request and traded to the Los Angeles Clippers in December, ending his solid run with the franchise. Paul’s absence was certainly felt, as the Hornets ended the season with the worst record in the NBA at 21-45.

Big things came for the franchise following the 2011-12 season, with New Orleans changing ownership. Tom Benson, who owned the NFL’s New Orleans Saints, took over for $338 million. The championship owner made some noise right away drafting Anthony Davis out of Kentucky with the first overall pick in the NBA Draft.

Benson helped lead the name change to its current form of the New Orleans Pelicans beginning in 2013. The Charlotte Hornets took their original name back, moving from the Bobcats, which allowed New Orleans to choose the Pelicans, Louisiana’s state bird.

The Pelicans progressed over their first year with the new nickname, but really broke through during this past season. New Orleans managed to get back in the playoffs despite playing in the extremely difficult Western Conference. Their 45-37 record was good for the eighth seed, topping the likes of other teams like the Oklahoma City Thunder and Phoenix Suns.

Their quick rise to prominence since the 2012 draft is not surprise considering the star they found in Anthony Davis. Davis has been a force since joining the team after leading the Kentucky Wildcats to a National Championship in 2012.

Davis earned NBA All-Rookie First Team honors and has since been named to two All-Star teams. After leading the league in blocks in 2014, Davis managed to repeat in 2015 and earned All-NBA First Team and NBA All-Defensive Second Team honors, as well. Many believe the ‘Brow’, as he is routinely called due to his trademark unibrow, is the best young talent to build around in the league given how difficult it is to find quality big men.

Davis is signed through the 2015-16 season and the Pelicans have done a great job securing other forms of young talent to surround the prominent forward.

Among those are guard Tyreke Evans, who showed great promise for the Pelicans this year averaging 16.6 points, 6.6 assists, and 5.3 rebounds a game. His assist and rebound numbers were both career highs, all coming in another personal best 79 games played and 76 games started.

Three-point shooting forward Ryan Anderson has also seemed to resurrect his career in New Orleans after a couple down years, becoming the team’s best downtown threat along with Eric Gordon.

The Pelicans will have a number of decisions to make with a number of free agents hitting the market, such as Gordon, recently acquired guard Norris Cole, and center Omer Asik. New Orleans is expected to retain all three while making a run at some others to solidify this already playoff-caliber roster.

Despite the success of the young squad, the team did let go of coach Monty Williams and seem to be looking for a big name to take the reins.
