    I think it all depends on how much time Pera has to pony up. The amount is roughly 300 million. When Pera bought the team, he went to Kaplan because he is the type of guy that raises money. In December it was reported that $1 billion valuation would force Pera to sell  (see:

    Since December Pera's company has taken a hit and the team has gotten worse. Things that will probably make it harder for Pera to raise money.

    Edit: Pera's company just announced that they will be spending $200 million on a stock repurchasing effort.

    Companies do that when they are flush with cash.

    Deyonta seems like that big kid that had to play basketball.  Almost like an obligation, but it doesn't appear that he loves it or truly has a passion for the sport. I hope I'm wrong, but he doesn't seem like he's going to improve much past where he is and he'll be in the G-League and then out of the league in a few years.

    I want to see how much Rabb improves after this season before writing him off.


    Both are 21 year olds



    You must be looking for instant gratification, give the guys a chance to grow. You must be a 1 MINUTE MAN. ;)

    :D Now, even the good moves are used against him.

    And Friday I heard a Memphis radio host genius say that even if Evans resigned, Wallace was still a loser in his mind.

    I would call this a bold move. And my guess is that the odds are in Wallace's favor.

    Well someone did come up with Baldwin but he did much better with Davis. That guy may be a stud if given the chance. I like Rabb better than I do Brooks,  he's got the same attitude that Baldwin had.

    Wallace told everyone they need to find something better to do with their time then pasionately follow this team by listening to talk radio and other media outlets. 

    Is this the attitude you want the leader of your franchise to tell you?

    Yeah, I like that attitude. Talk show hosts are out for themselves.

    Yea i get what you are saying here.  Internationally the AllStar cred is what get you on the radar.   Teams like Grizzlies are for the diehards and true fans of the NBA  like yourself. 


    yea i can tell the difference in the reaction.   I am know trying to think of any International Star player that got fans excited and in the seats before earning an AllStar berth.   Only one i can think of is Rubio.  

    Petro did.

    That’s a lie too. He actually defers to

    much. At 23 he still has room to grow too. 

    He stood out there with the ball so long he had no option but to shoot it. You need to shoot in case you miss so that maybe one of your players will get the rebound.

    One guy was grabbing Selden's shoulder on the drive and two of them got their bodies into him on the shot.  He was fouled.

    I didn't see a foul either, he was so low down that the big mans' waist was over his shoulder. Selden wants to be the big dog too much.

    As long as we finish with a top 5 pick - i am good.   Lots of legit options to choose from. 

    I don't see how you say that if they get the 5th pick, everyone pretty much says there seems to be 5 picks so the Grizz would only have 1 option, whoever was left.

    well guys get ready because brooks is already a starter....rabb and davis was once appoint in time considered lottery picks but fell in the draft...also who else is going to take a aging conley/gasol starting spot...I don't watch college ball so I guess you guys can throw our savior in where ever he fits.

    Yeah but that could change if they change coaches

    Wallace is full of it. I doubt Conley ever makes a full recovery and gets back to where he was. Those last 3 years are his contract are going to be brutal. 30 mil a year for 14 and 5

    They'll give him 50M a year once that one runs out.

    Kyrie will make the Hall of Fame. Who knows what Tatum will become? So should they blow it up? No. They have that solid core plus multiple high draft picks still coming their way. The main reason to blow up the Grizzlies core has always been the combination of 1) no high end talent and 2) no avenue in which to get high end talent, i.e. no future assets or current quality young assets. I would have been fine with keeping the core four together if they were younger and the team had a way to add to them without blowing it up.

    I advocated to blow this team up three years ago. I said that the team had reached its peak and would only go downhill. I also said that the lack of quality young players on the team and the lack of quality draft picks would bite us in the butt. It has. Big time. The reason the Celtics are where they are is because Danny Ainge had the foresight to realize that his core, which was way better than ours, could no longer compete for the title. Rather than wait for that team to completely die off, he traded them for assets while they still had value.

    Yes. I usually try to say Hall of Fame level player because I am always worried that someone will say "He's not in the Hall of Fame." Surprisingly that has not happened. I think most of the posters on the board know LeBron James is a Hall of Fame player even if he isn't retired, just to use an example. Now sometimes we disagree on players, such as above. KBM thinks Kyrie is worse than Conley. Conley has no hope of making the Hall of Fame. He has never even made an All-Star team. So I am guessing KBM doesn't not believe that Kyrie is a future Hall of Famer. I do. 

    I was replying to Amos Moses because his post was right above mine I didn't quote it. No 1 knows which guys are going to be able to make the HoF. Boston doesn't seem to have a big dog right now but it sure wouldn't surprise if they don't have 1 in the young players they have. Just give them a little time. I wouldn't count Horford out yet.

    Ergo, breaking up a core 4 to find a superstar gets you closer to a championship, which is exactly what I said your premise was.

    Let me ask this another way should Boston blow up their team because they have no Hall of Famers on it and go for a Hall of Famer?

    Excuse me but don't you have to retire before you can become a HOF?

    1967 for me, but we did Grade 13, so let's go sit in the Oldtimers' Corner. 

    Yeah and talk about the good old days and the chicks we missed out on. There was 4 or 5 GOOD LOOKING  girls I could have had and wound up with none of them. But I didn't do so bad, I've been with the 1 I married for almost 50 years. She was mighty easy on the eyes 2.
