It's everyone's favorite time of year! Gifts are shared, the work force gets some deserved days off, and the wishes of millions are granted by loved ones.
Why not extend that courtesy to the New Orleans Pelicans?
Sure, the NBA's athletes are afforded privileges that most around the world would love to have, but they have needs just like every one of us. The 82-game season is a long, tumultuous road, so a boost during the holiday season can go a long way toward getting through the grind.
Shiny new toys aren't the only thing to wish for, however. Sometimes, just holding onto what you have is the best gift of all. The Pelicans have gotten stellar play from a few key contributors this season, and they'll be hoping for continued success as the year winds on.
So what's on the wish list for the Pelicans and their fans?
