  1. So far he is shooting light years beyond his previous career high. Let's see if he sustains it for more than 11 games. Besides, he most likely will be injured before next year based on his history.
  2. Mario Chalmers

    Chalmers was extremely wide open on that last shot. Did you see the Magic defenders go under the screen and never try to come out? They wanted him shooting that shot. They dared him and he fell for it. I will agree that he is not normally that stupid. But he's no longer an NBA player. I shouted that all off season. No one listened. Now we have another season without a decent backup PG. (Although Tyreke handles the ball, he is not a PG. He is about Tyreke and no one else.)
  3. Mario Chalmers

    No it's not an overreaction. If it were one game it would be an overreaction. But on the season Chalmers is shooting 29% from the field and 26.9% from 3. He's 31 years old, coming off an injury that players just don't recover from and regain their prior form. This is his 9th year in the league and he is averaging a career high 3.6 fouls per game despite playing the 3rd lowest minutes per game of his career. His PER is 8 (AWFUL) and the worst of his career. His rebound rate is the second worst of his career. His assist percentage and true shooting percentage are the worst of his career. What more evidence do you need to say that he is awful???
  4. Mario Chalmers

    I was extremely vocal and adamantly against bringing back or keeping Chalmers. I cannot think of one player who has ever come back from a torn achilles and was as good of a player as he was before the injury. And Chalmers was nothing more than a solid backup before the injury. He can't shoot anymore (legs are important there). He can't move his feet on defense, thus the fouls.
  5. Stat Check - Early Look at the Numbers

    Sample size is too small to have any real opinion of what we have or don't have as a team. But I will take the small sample and give my opinion of it. Harrison is awful. Chalmers is just as bad shooting but at least knows how to run the team, so we think he's good. If he doesn't improve soon, we will find ourselves in the same situation we always have- no backup pg. I hate Tyreke's style of play. He dribbles too much and is very selfish. However he is playing well right now. Let's hope he stays healthy and productive. If he does, the team will tolerate it. He needs to stay with the bench unit though, where he can be the go to scorer and ball hog without as much complaining. Dillon Brooks is a solid player. I'd start him over Harrison. I think Brooks can be a Courtney Lee- level, above average starter. I want to see more from Parsons. Although I have been encouraged by the improved play. He will never live up to the contract. I just want him to be a contributor at this point. Is this the year that Marc stops teasing us and remains aggressive all year? I surely hope so. He has looked amazing so far.
  6. Things i know wont happen, but should

    I'm just baffled how you make such definitive conclusions after one preseason game.
  7. Weezy is Lil Wayne. Yeezy is Kanye West. Get your rappers straight.
  8. I'm consistent with my opinion of Conley: Even with last year's improved play, he isn't worth that much money. However, it was pay it or possibly lose him. I was OK with them paying it. You constantly act like people hate Conley. I don't know of anyone who thinks Conley is a bad player. Plenty don't believe he is worth 30m a year; that doesn't mean they don't like Conley as a player. I honestly can't recall my opinion of the Parsons signing at the time it happened. Been so jaded for so long about it that the beginning is fuzzy. I imagine I was for it because I think a healthy Parsons would have been a solid signing. However, that doesn't mean I shouldn't criticize Wallace for it. We weren't the ones looking at the medical reports. He had access to them. At some point the front office needs to make better decisions regarding players injury histories. If that means replace the medical staff, so be it. In the end, it keeps happening on Wallace's watch, which means the blame falls on him.
  9. All Time Grizz Squad?

    I will stick with just Memphis since I never watched them in Vancouver PG: Conley, J-Will, Stoudamire SG: Allen, Bonzi, Mayo, Wesley Person (best 3 pt specialist we ever had-taking him over some better players) SF: Gay, Posey, Battier, Miller PF: Randolph, Pau C: Marc, Lorenzen

    I too believe he will never offer us anything. It's very depressing to see that our biggest free agent move is a bust. Still doesn't make sense to hate on the guy for a living the good life. If he was doing it and not putting work in to try to get better, it might be a different story. But the man is working out and making the efforts to get better. His body just isn't going to let him. Rip him for being useless as a player, but where he lives shouldn't matter.
  11. #chancun

    If this bothers you, then you are just being ridiculous. Conley has a home in Columbus. Gasol has one in Spain. ZBo kept one in Portland. They have lots of money. Real estate is usually a good investment (even if they are living in it).
  12. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    Not saying you haven't seen them, just asking- how many of these guys have you seen play against other elite players on a regular basis? And that shouldn't be directed at just you, I mean it for everyone. Can we at least see what these guys can do in college before we anoint them as saviors? Lenny Cooke was considered on par with Carmelo Anthony during high school. Josh Selby was a high school all american. Eddie Curry and Kwame Brown. Ivan Rabb. On the other end, Gordon Hayward and Steph Curry. So many guys go through high school looking like stars but can't cut it when the competition picks up. Then others aren't thought of as highly and break out. Let's see what all of these guys can do before we anoint them as saviors or say they can't play.
  13. New Uniforms on the way

    I hope not. I like the collar bear.
  14. but guys....he was so emotional to hear the Grizz signed him. That means he will be great here.
  15. Mario Chalmers returns

    I hope that partial guarantee on Mario is extremely low. Who was the last player to come back from an Achilles tear and resemble their former self? I can't think of one. Dominique is the only guy who was really good after the tear. Even he wasn't the same. Kobe put up decent scoring numbers but his efficiency was awful. Wesley Matthews never shot below 41% from the field or 38% from 3 pt prior to his injury (THOSE WERE HIS CAREER LOWS. HE WAS USUALLY BETTER THAN THAT). The two years since he has been 39% from the field and 36% from 3 pt. So someone please tell me a player who has come back close to the player he once was following an achilles injury. Now take Mario specifically. Prior to his injury his ceiling was quality back up pg. He is 31 years old, not exactly the age of best recovery but not ancient either. So if he comes back be as well as Dominique did, he becomes average backup pg. If he is like everyone else with an achilles tear, he is trash. I never understood this board's obsession with bringing him back.
  16. What's the Current Lineup?

    What if I liked Hollins, then liked Joerger, and now like Fizdale? Then there would have to be another reason why I like Fizdale, right?
  17. MEM Summer League Thread

    When making this comparison, do not forget that Bell is 2 years older than Davis. Age matters; it matters even more with big men who usually take a little more time to develop. Best approach for everyone to take
  18. MEM Summer League Thread

    We don't have any! I mean the team ignores/ doesn't bother getting shooting even during the summer league.
  19. I Think Baldwin Is Starting To Come On

    Wade is a 6'4" SG who can't shoot worth a lick but has had a Hall of Fame career, Dwyane Wade. Wade Baldwin is no Dwyane Wade, but to say he is too small and can't shoot thus cannot play SG is to ignore one of the all time greats. I'm not sure Wade Baldwin will ever be a good NBA player. Every time I watch him, he looks as if he has no clue. But I am not ready to write him off because he is short for a SG or can't shoot. (Also Wade Baldwin has a longer wingspan and higher vertical than Dwyane Wade had at their respective combines)
  20. MEM Summer League Thread

    I'm really happy that they keep finding ways to win. I am happy that Selden has looked like he could be a rotation level player. I think Kobi Simmons will be a good player to have on a two way contract. I like Deyonta flashes. I am like Chip in that I wish he would be more aggressive. I'm disappointed that Deyonta Davis was a -18 and Jarrell Martin was a a freaking summer league game. That is pathetic. But I also understand it is just one game and hope it was just a weird coincidence. I hate that we ignore shooters even on our summer league roster. I hate watching Wade Baldwin play; it truly seems like he has no clue what he is doing.
  21. People say he works hard. Thank you for sharing that. Everyone agrees that he is athletically talented and has massive potential. This makes him the first ever player to be both gifted and work his *** off but never get better. I'm glad to read all these people talk about his work ethic. I'd prefer results over words. If he keeps being crappy and unable to dribble, does it matter?
  22. See I was going to let it slide, but you called my opinion baseless. It's actually based in two things: 1) he just quit his workout to celebrate. Finish your workout and then celebrate. 2) he has not gotten any better and can't dribble. If you work that hard, he would at least be better at dribbling. I do not know of anyone saying he has bad work ethic. I was just seeing him stop a workout prematurely and noticing no improvement in his game. Those are generally signs of bad work ethic. You came up with people saying he worked hard. I cannot dispute them. That does not mean my opinion was baseless.
  23. Glad to know I was wrong. But that is kind of scary that he has natural talent and great work ethic and has still been so bad. ANd still can't dribble.
  24. I guess you're right. There is no way for me to truly know. But it does show him walk out from the back area where he was taking the phone call, and the guy running the workout tells him to shower and go party. From there he takes another phone call before he begins packing up his stuff. Pretty strong clues he was just going home. Given that he's been a bust up to this point in his career and that Sacramento had no desire to retain him, I imagine I'm not going too far out on a limb when I say his work ethic is not what it should be.
  25. Why should he? It's not like he had to go sign then or even could go sign then. I wasn't made about to stopping to take the call. Conduct your business. Then get back to work. Don't go celebrate when every metric shows you have not lived up to your potential. Go put the work in and next time you won't have to sweat whether or not a team will sign you.
