NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — Coach Monty Williams of the New Orleans Pelicans needs to be fired. This team has been in last place of their division for the last three years. Does owner Tom Benson have his head stuck up his buttockal area? How long will Benson let Monty Williams stick around here stinking up the league? General Manager Dell Demps may be the root cause also. He is parading players through here like musical chairs. He gets rid of great players who go to other teams where they wind up starring deep into the playoffs. Tom Benson loves the status quo too much.
Only poor ticket sales might wake up sleepy-headed Benson. Is seems like he is asleep at the wheel. By the end of last season, the stands were so empty that the cameras could not wisely scan the “crowd.” Over the last few years, intelligent owners have wisely cut their losses quickly; righting their ships in time to continue to be viable. Benson should not continue blindly watching these Pelicans be in last place year after year. WAKE UP, Mr. Benson!! …before it is too late. Monty Williams and Dell Demps are sailing this ship straight into neverland where they will eventually fall off the edge of the earth. Yes, they keep rotating good players through this team like that is the problem. When the problem is Dell Demps and Monty Williams.
