Are any roster moves in their future before the trade deadline? The Grizzlies travel to New Orleans to take on the Pelicans Friday evening, and Bourbon Street Shots editor Michael McNamara is kind enough to join us before the game!

Who knows how this season is going to play out, honestly?

Even as the New Orleans Pelicans sit 3.5 games back of the 8th-seed in the Western Conference, they still have one of the rising stars in the league in Anthony Davis - the third best scorer in the league, top shot blocker in the league and top player in regards to PER.

The Southwest Division is loaded.  We all have been watching great teams battle on the court in this area of the league.  Good luck finding another division in the NBA...better yet, in any other sport currently...whose last-place team is only one game under .500!

Grizz Nation travels to New Orleans Friday evening to face The Brow and Co. in a crucial division match-up.  Is Davis the front-runner to win the MVP right now?  Will he ultimately win it?  What exactly does the future hold for the Pelicans? Are there roster moves in their immediate future? How is Friday's game going to shake out?

Bourbon Street Shots editor Michael McNamara of ESPN's TrueHoop site stops by to answer these questions for us and more!
