  2. Where is OJ Mayo?

    Interesting and spot on. Remember when we thought we won the Love/Mayo trade?
  3. Silver: NBA Expansion is Inevitable

    The league is really more talented then ever before. More people around the world are playing basketball. Last year there were over 110 foreign players in the league. That is more than 7 full teams of foreign players that really weren't around in the 80s. Whether the league has 9 teams or 30 teams, it has always been dominated by a small handful of teams with an outstanding star or two or three.

  5. Where is OJ Mayo?

    You are given this Memphis related choice at the end of the 2009 season - In 2017, which of these guys will be out of the league, which will be playing on a 1-yr contract near the league minimum, and which of these guys will one of the highest paid players in the league. Your choices: Derrick Rose, OJ Mayo, and Mike Conley. In 2009, nobody gets that answer correct.
  6. JaM Ain't Going Anywhere

    Give him a more reasonable offer like 7 mil/2 years + team option for 3rd and see if he takes it
  7. Silver: NBA Expansion is Inevitable

    About a week ago Mexico City was named as a possible place for major league baseball expansion. It wouldn't surprise me if the NBA was looking at it too.
  8. JaM Ain't Going Anywhere

    Yeah I forgot about the RFA thing. In that case he could either take the QO or go overseas instead of just taking what Memphis wants him to take.
  9. Silver: NBA Expansion is Inevitable

    Didn't Silver say that he could see or would like Mexico City to have an NBA team? Pretty sure I read it on ESPN when the last NBA game was played there
  10. JaM Ain't Going Anywhere

    I agree with all of this, but I also believe that a few smooth words from Wallace and a little bump to the QO could quickly put an end to this.
  11. Silver: NBA Expansion is Inevitable

    During the last lock out Stern brought it up.
  12. Silver: NBA Expansion is Inevitable

    When did the NBA contract or when did they threaten contraction?
  13. JaM Ain't Going Anywhere

    That's if he stays in the NBA. I would not rule out him getting a deal overseas. Obviously, he's a restricted FA. The Grizz did this one right and dared him to bring back an offer and they would match but he has an idiot for an agent who tried to bluff and negotiate a deal through the media. He needs to fire that guy first. I would just hold steadfast and not offer him anything until someone else comes around, Otherwise, the QO is all we pay. He ain't getting paid next year either. I still wouldn't rule out an overseas stint for him.
  14. JaM Ain't Going Anywhere

    People in Memphis don't get this.

  16. Silver: NBA Expansion is Inevitable

    I don't think the nba should expand. They can barely muster enough decent talent for the teams they have now. They just need to move a couple current teams to a more desired market. Unfortunately, that might include the grizz.
  17. Silver: NBA Expansion is Inevitable

    Vegas goes from zero teams to the NHL and NFL just like that. Let them and the league's see how that plays out first. Kansas City would be my 2nd choice behind Seattle. Though I'm not sure there is the population or disposable income for a small market like that to support three major league teams.
  18. Silver: NBA Expansion is Inevitable

    Seattle and Vegas, maybe San Jose, if there isn't another recession before that. Then they'll be threatening contraction again.
  19. JaM Ain't Going Anywhere

    Alright ---> that was funny. Thread unlocked!
  20. JaM Ain't Going Anywhere

    If he took a cheap deal elsewhere, we just match it and he plays here, so he can't screw Memphis.
  21. JaM Ain't Going Anywhere

    Yeah you are right no player in sports history has ever signed somewhere else for less because they felt disrespected by their previous employer. Never happens.
  22. JaM Ain't Going Anywhere

    Ridiculous baseless BS
  23. JaM Ain't Going Anywhere

    I wouldnt be suprised to see JAM take a cheap deal in Boston or somewhere that he can play just to screw Memphis.
  24. JaM Ain't Going Anywhere

    One possible option is Chicago if they don't re-sign Mirotic (their own RFA) or if they use Jimmy Butler's TPE, but I don't think that's likely.
  25. Where is OJ Mayo?

    I took a lot of flak for my stance on Mayo but there were red flags every where and at his size, he was an undersized scorer. He was never a PG type. I never bought into the media hype and I was living in California at the time and many USC fans couldn't stand him. I never bought into the OJ vs Rudy thing but it was clear he wanted to be the alpha dog even if he didn't have the skills to back it up. The guy rubbed me the wrong way from the jump. I hope he can get his life together and get back on track. Also, I'm not surprised people can't find him. He always came across to me as a loner type who didn't like people in his business.
  26. Hello, Dillon Brooks!

    Yes! And it was TEAM defense. I agree that TA is/was an elite 1 on 1 defender but we had a cohesive defense that was solid. We can have that again without replacing TA with a comparable, elite, 1 on 1 defender. When TA gambled he could be a hero or a zero for our overall defense.
  27. Silver: NBA Expansion is Inevitable

    I don't see how that is relevant to expansion. I do agree that one team has an abundance of talent right now....but with FA rules as they are then you could have 4 teams in the league and one will have the means to be a powerhouse if the PLAYERS decide to make it so.
  28. JaM Ain't Going Anywhere

    Speights n Afflalo to Orlando, Crabbe to the Nets. Jam runnin out of options outside of us.
