  1. I'm going because I want to see all the new scoreboards.
  2. Melo Traded to the Thunder, huh?

    I wonder if they'll be enough ball to go around in OKC.
  3. The memphis tigers just stunned ucla, babby

    Go Grizz! That was a great, great game yesterday. The southern heat looked like it had gassed all the UCLA players by the third quarter. I guess there's a reason they rarely venture from the west coast. Welcome to day football in the South. UCLA had quite a few fans here who really enjoyed our city for a couple of days. They were all over downtown and especially Beale St. Fantastic, electric crowd yesterday also. Only gripe was the stadium running out of water and Cokes before halftime but with the Coca Cola plant right next door to the stadium, that problem was quickly rectified. What a great day! Go Grizz!
  4. I think Kaplan came aboard because Jason Levien convinced him. Levien was more responsible in putting the ownership group together than Pera.
  5. Also the status quo is a possibility. Kaplan has since acquired an English Premiere League soccer team and may not want to do anything but ride his ever increasing share value of the Grizzlies. I believe he has this same option in another five years.
  6. I've wondered that myself. The last game before the All Star Break the Grizz were hosting a weak New Orleans team. Win this game and they'd been 12 over .500, the highest all season. Then they'd been positioned for a good final run. But alas, they played one of their most uninspired games of the season, losing to a roster depleted Pelican squad. They looked so disinterested that game. Unfortunately they carried that disinterest post all star break where in the last 25 games Grizz played 6 under ball to finish with their 43-39 record. That game was kind of the swing point of the season. They never could get out of the funk. Maybe they were looking forward to the all star break? (chancun?), I just don't know. I do know our squad last year just didn't have the inner strength to carry all throughout a 82 game schedule. The coaches tried. I tend to blame the players more on last year's finish. They were collectively soft. Hopefully this year will be different.

    Grizzlies were a robust 22-60 in 2007-08, the exact same record as the year before. The next season (08-09) they 'improved' to 24-58.
  8. What Does Marc Mean?

    As we've all seen the past many years, Marc has always been kind of a skeptic, on pretty much everything. This is just another example of 'Marc being Marc'. We all want the franchise to continue growing.
  9. New Uniforms on the way

  10. I know the regular season schedule hasn't been released yet but according to several sites, the regular season will begin on Tuesday, October 17. We're only about 10 weeks out from that date. I'm surprised the schedule isn't out yet. I know the league is trying to cut down on back to backs, but that almost seems to early to me. We won't even be at the halfway points of the NFL and NCAA football seasons. This also must mean our camp will start early to mid September. As for the preseason schedule, I keep looking at this site https://basketball.realgm.com/nba/preseason/schedule A Grizzlies game finally popped in on Monday October 2nd against Orlando. I know teams dropped to six preseason games so hopefully we won't waste any games against travelling European minor league teams as we have in the past.
  11. Team Hero Grizz@bulls

    It was great to hear Pranica with the emphatic 'Bango, ice water in his veins' late in the game
  12. While Grizzlies is a fine name and well ingrained, not changing the name to Sounds on relocation in 2001 was a huge missed opportunity at specific Memphis branding.
  13. They could have a person inside the scoreboard manually hanging the score with aluminum panels (like Wrigley Field and Fenway Park) if it brought us a title.
  14. I Miss Josh Pastner

    The Tigers board is overrun with trolls that have multiple alias names. I'm pretty sure he's one of them, maybe even more than one.
  15. It also says it was a 'incorrect no call' when with 12 seconds left they mugged Conley stripping the ball from him for the go ahead layup. Looks to me like 'two wrongs do make a right' in this situation. Even Steven.
