“At the end of the day, I think they’re a very good football team but the old saying is that ‘if you’re not getting better, you’re getting worse.’ I think this team has gotten better but it remains to be seen if they’re better at certain positions.”

Kincaid on what the Pelicans should strive for:

“The ultimate successful season would be making the playoffs, be it as the eighth seed or whatever, because it shows that you are heading in the right direction and I think it’s important for Alvin Gentry as well. He’s got to show he can motivate these players to win some basketball games. My biggest complaint about Alvin and I love Alvin as a person, is that...If you look at his history in the game, he has not been a consistent winner. In fact, his first year, he and I did a sitdown in the middle of the court at the facility and we talked about that.”
