  1. JaM Ain't Going Anywhere

    I'm pretty sure it has happened several times before, it just got leaked out this time.
  2. JaM Ain't Going Anywhere

    So he does nothing for 2 years but then balls out in 1 training camp? That would prove absolutely nothing. That guy is a fringe NBA player at best and it was a wasted pick.
  3. Melo Traded to the Thunder, huh?

    DWade was bought out by Chicago today, expected to go to CLE. Now it would be hilarious if he went to OKC
  5. Melo Traded to the Thunder, huh?

    Hmm, for some strange reason I get the feeling that if the Grizz acquired Paul George and Carmelo Anthony in one off-season and retained most of our players, you wouldn't say that we "may be a little better, but not a real threat." Just a wild hunch on my part.
  6. I actually agree with you here. I've never understood the praise that JaM gets on this board nor do I understand why people were so happy to have him as the starting PF.I think they feel that he gives us a legit stretch 4 and I don't agree with that. He's still an undersized PF. He's a tweener with no real position. People praise his 3 pt shooting but he's not even averaging 1 made 3 per game, people praise his defense and point out his defensive stats but when watching with my own eyes, I see people getting by him or just muscling through him. He put up decent rebounding stats last year but really hasn't been a consistent rebounder. JaM is a great guy to have as a backup if we had a real starting PF. It wouldn't bother me one way or the other if we didn't sign him this season. Do people really think having JaM vs not having him will have a significant impact on this season? Will having him give us a better chance of making the playoffs versus not having? I'm honestly not sure. I don't think it will be that big of a difference. Would he be the difference in a playoff series vs the Warriors or Thunder or Rockets or Spurs? Of course not. It wouldn't bother me if we didn't sign him at all.
  7. Melo Traded to the Thunder, huh?

    They're clearly better than the Grizz but I thought they were better than the Grizz before they got Melo. Hell, they had a better record than the Grizz last season when it was just Westbrook. The Grizz have fallen behind and these minor off-season moves won't help much. People are hoping the Grizz will be able to compete with Minny, Utah and the Clips from seeds 6-8 but I'm not even sure if that is realistic at this point. Tyreke, Parsons, and McLemore will not only have to stay healthy but have to play above their historic performance while Marc and Mike do the same. I'm thinking more and more we will be lucky to be around .500.Hell, we still don't have a starting PF. Yes, it's a good problem to have (as long as they are winning at a high level and you're not the coach) and yes I wish the Grizz would have these problems but we are who we are. Our FO has shown historically that we won't pursue or don't have the assets to pursue players like PG and Melo. Yes, I think they are better than the Grizz but I thought before Melo. I also think GS, HOU, SAS, and Minny are all better than the Grizz, not sure if we are as good as Utah, Clips, Nugs, Blazers and Pels either.
  8. Melo Traded to the Thunder, huh?

    My initial thoughts were how will Donovan make Westbrook, PG and Melo happy. Then i saw this stat from ESPN: And I REALLY wonder how Donovan is going to keep them happy. You have 3 high volume scorers who need the ball in their hands to make things happen. Good luck with that. Ehhh, doesn't really matter. It's addition by subtraction. They had to get rid of him. He was demanding a trade. I had just seen something the other day with him saying they needed to trade him before training camp starts. It's not like they are hurting their chances of winning by getting rid of Melo and Melo is no spring chicken at 33. He's getting older, not the same skillset he used to have, heavy perimeter and iso player. I don't think the fans wanted him back next year and they didn't care what the team got in return.
  9. This is a futures power ranking for the next 3 years. It's not like he said anything that is controversial.
  10. Troy Daniels traded to Phoenix

    I think you're giving the front office way too much credit. When is the last time we came out with the better end of a trade or made a crafty move?
  11. Troy Daniels traded to Phoenix

    Agreed. I said everything you just said the day we signed him and I questioned why we signed him, questioned his shooting stats and questioned why he could stay with any of his previous teams, with all of that being said, he did provide sparks and excitement at various times throughout this past season. He's a clearly flawed player but I doubt we get any more out of Benny Mac.
  12. Troy Daniels traded to Phoenix

    I think they wanted cap space and to trim the roster, they did that. If they took back players, they would have had to let other go. I don't think you're going to get much for Troy Daniels.
  13. Troy Daniels traded to Phoenix

    Pretty much knew this would happen. Fizz never seemed to be big on TD. He was one of the few players who could heat up in an instant and give us instant offense. People can criticize his d but let's be serious, you can criticize a lot of players for not playing d and it's not like his guy was the only guy scoring when he was in the game. The writing was on the wall when they brought in Tyreke and Bennie Mac. I don't think either of them will provide much of a defensive boost either. Always felt that he was constantly in Fizz's doghouse and not used properly. He's a journeyman though and will probably be traded next season.
  14. Troy Daniels traded to Phoenix

    ok and....they more than likely won't use it.
  15. Where is OJ Mayo?

    A lot of entertainers are told to finance things so that they can maximize their cash flow and invest in other ways. They are told, instead of dropping $1 mil on a house(which depending on where you are at, may not get you much), put down 20% and invest the other $800k. I don't agree with that. If I had it, I would pay the house off in one lump sum. Cash is King. You never know what can happen.
  16. JaM Ain't Going Anywhere

    LOL, yeah. Chips memory is a little bit off on this one. The Grizz were horrible in 2007-08. I stand corrected. Tiger fb had a winning record and made a bowl game. The bball team was #1 for most of that year I think you would expect good attendance.
  17. JaM Ain't Going Anywhere

    Have all of those teams done well at the same time? I get the feeling if that happened, attendance would be mediocre in 1 if not 2 of those teams
  18. Grizzlies opponents - 2017 Free agents and trades

    Noel signed 1 year QO from Mavs for $4.1 mil. Previously turned down 4 year, $70 mil earlier in the summer.
  19. JaM Ain't Going Anywhere

    And sometimes that else where is the casino, lottery, liquor or drugs. People spend their money how they choose and it's up to them. I don't think it's always spending on necessity though. Also, the Memphis poverty rate is one of the biggest reasons why this city should have never gotten a pro sports teams, especially not basketball which is 41 homes games a year plus the pre-season and post season. that's a lot of games and a lot of money spent on concessions or whatever in comparison to the NFL.
  20. All Time Grizz Squad?

    So NBA2K18 will feature an "All Time" team for all 30 teams. Who do you think makes the cut for the Grizz? I'm thinking PG: Conley, JWill SG: ???? Bonzi? Michael Dickerson? Mayo?CLee? Person? SF: Rudy Gay, Battier (SAR if Vancouver) PF: Z-Bo, Pau C: Marc I don't know if it's just Memphis players or the Vancouver/Memphis franchise. It would be hilarious (if not sad) if players like Stro and Darko made the team. Although they should have a fan favorite on the team, in that case, I would vote for Bo Outlaw, James Posey or TA.
  21. JaM Ain't Going Anywhere

    That's most cities. I would say that cities that support losers are the exception and not the rule. Memphis is no different.
  22. Memphis Hustle draft/roster

    What? No Joe Jackson, the King of Memphis?
  23. Grizzlies opponents - 2017 Free agents and trades

    I don't see how Wade, Rose and IT coexist
