Newly signed power forward Ryan Anderson said during Rockets media day he saw more open looks during pickup games than during his four seasons with the Pelicans. The comment prompted some fans of the Pelicans to express some disappointment with Anderson on social media. "Just making a point I've been getting a lot of open looks," Anderson said when told about the Pels' fans displeasure. "In New Orleans a lot of teams would, especially when I was in that sixth man role, in a lot of different lineups, I would be the focal point and a lot of teams would try to shut me out. (Defenses) switching and they wouldn't let me get open looks. I think this offense is so imperative for the guards to get to the basket. All the attention will be on James (Harden) and that will take a lot off me. I was exaggerating a little bit."
