  1. Start from Scratch Option

    Despite the many times Kevin is wrong, this time he is absolutely correct. in my opinion the lack of identity (and culture) stems directly from Chris Wallace hiring David and firing of David Fizdale. Wallace wanted Fizdale to replace the team’s culture and then fired him for attempting to do that. It is a weakness on top that has sullied the franchise. Until that changes there is little hope for the franchise to make the needed moves to be anything other than an underperforming failure of a team.
  2. What do you think Tyreke's value is?

    True and very reasonable ignoring one small aspect. What if the Grizzlies aren't interested in trading Gasol?
  3. Scrub-maniacs vs Tank-aholics

    I understand your position but any player in today's game where the offense runs exclusively through him without any realistic alternatives is going to be a negative to a team. That also isn't the way Gasol wants to play unlike some other more popular current players on the boards. Gasol wants to play the right way but he's been on a team that doesn't play right. Perhaps his missing some games will allow or convince these players to take a step forward and become more active offensively.
  4. Team Hero 01/18/2018 vs Knicks

    TH: JaMychal Green HM: Dillon Brooks, Jarell Martin Nice seeing the young guys playing well. I hope they can keep up the good work.
  5. Scrub-maniacs vs Tank-aholics

    People on the board jump at every chance to degrade players on this team. Wait until teams adjust before making too many broad statements is my advice.
  6. What do you think Tyreke's value is?

    I agree with this. His FG% is horrid but that happens when you can’t create your own shots and teams are focused on stopping you. Otherwise Gasol hasn’t played poorly. His defensive rating has dropped but so has the team’s overall so how much of that should laid solely on Gasol’s shoulders?
  7. Scrub-maniacs vs Tank-aholics

    Even scrubs can wins. Game now and then, especially when the opponent isn’t prepared for the lineup changes and doesn’t have insight into what to expect. The difference between a real NBA contributor and a scrub isn’t that great. Last night the Grizzlies played differently than the Knicks were prepared for, hit shots they usually miss and squeaked out a win against a team playing on a 7 game road trip. Let’s not make this out to be more than it is.

    You were missed
  9. Team Hero v Lakers 01/15/2018

    TH: Dillon Brooks HM: Davis, Ennis
  10. Memphis Hustle

    Rabb is the 12th man on the Grizzlies bench right now. I have no idea why he isn't playing with the Hustle. Seems like a waste to me.
  11. Memphis signs Myke Henry from G-League

    Exactly but I would be surprised after this brush off that Hunter came back to the Hustle.
  12. Memphis signs Myke Henry from G-League

    The only way the Hustle could get Myke was to offer a better contract than his current G League contract. The team could only offer two 2 way contracts. For the team to sign Myke they needed to get rid of one of their two already under contract.
  13. Why are we even trying?

    The team is trying because they are professionals. They get paid to give their best every night. It may be just a lost season to some fans but to the players it is their career. It is a statement of who they are as a person. I support these guys 100%. It may not be enough on most nights but they represent our city and I want them to give the fans their best every night regardless of the outcome.
  14. NOLA @ Memphis 1/10/18

    Same here. I worked thru the illness but stopped All extracurricular events. Heck, I’m at the office today!
  15. Team Hero 01/11/2018 vs Pelicans

    TH: JaMychal Green HM: Marc Gasol and Tyreke Evans
  16. NOLA @ Memphis 1/10/18

    I missed my first game of the season fighting this **** cold that is going around. I can't remember the last time I missed a game I had tickets to go to.
  17. Inverted Standings Watch

    Well the Grizzlies are now in last place in the Western Confrence. I hope that makes someone happy on the boards. it just makes me sick.
  18. It's Time To Talk About Marc Gasol

    +1 And if people believe the decision was made to appease a player they are ignoring a lot of things that happened between the Grizzlies organization and Fizdale. I didn’t like the hiring or firing of Fizdale but the man brought about his own demise. To place the blame solely on one player is unfair to that player. Fizdale has ostracized his bosses long before Hasol was benched against Brooklyn. It was the last straw but not the only straw.
  19. Roster Moves

    Conley is for better at running plays that keep everyone involved on offense in my opinion.
  20. Roster Moves

    Yes. Evans played with Rudy in Sacramento. He played with Davis in New Orleans. Allen Iverson got a lot of assists too but he wasn't interested in involving others in the offense either. He drives, drives, drives and then dishes as the clock is running out to someone who either makes the shot or not. Players can get a lot of assists that way without trying to involve anyone else in the offense. That's what I see Evans doing a lot.
  21. Roster Moves

    When was that? I don't believe the Grizzlies ever went 3-17 last season with or without Z-Bo and Allen. Could you tell me the dates that this occurred?
  22. Roster Moves

    I can't place blame on who between the front office and coaching staff made errors but it seems clear that losing Z-Bo and TA for nothing and signing Tyreke to replace Z-Bo was a mistake. I don't harbor any ill will toward Tyreke. He's doing what he knows how to do. I just don't believe his style of play leads to a winning atmosphere. He gets his and everyone else stands around and waits for the scraps left over when Evans isn't able to get his shot. It worked against the depleted Clippers but overall the record the Grizzlies have posted is eerily similar to what the Pelicans posted when Evans was healthy and the Kings too. The one constant between all of these situations has been Evans.
  23. Roster Moves

    Conley never has put up numbers like that and still somehow the team has made the playoffs 7 consecutive years. I like winning more than losing while stuffing individual stats. I'm strange that way.
  24. Roster Moves

    You are right. He's an excellent individual ball player. I never said anything to the contrary. I don't believe saying our point guard getting more assists than our center or a player with a bad achilles is saying a lot however. I definitely wouldn't be pointing to that as a strength of his.
