  1. Sacramento @ Memphis 01/19/18

    What happened to Kobi Simmons?
  2. What do you think Tyreke's value is?

    Yes, the FG% can be a misuse stat at times, but a FG% is a stat just like the other stats in the game. Here's the point, DeAndre has played well all season, and yes he is in the LA market, therefore, he'll be mentioned on National TV and Radio way more than Gasol. However, LA and Memphis both started the year with identical records. LA was 5-2 with Memphis being at 5-1. The Clips dropped to 5-11 while the Grizzlies went to 7-15. Now, the Clippers are at 23-21 and the Grizzlies are at 15-28 while taking advantage of being other terrible teams. Everybody has their own opinions regardless of which center is better. But if you prefer a center that can "spread" the floor and get averages 18/8/4 that's fine. If you prefer a rim protector that shoots a high percentage and has the ability to ignite the crowd, but is not a good free throw shooter, but averages 12/15/1, that's fine as well. Personally, Jordon is a better fit in Cleveland than Gasol because of defense. Besides, are we really going to debate free throw percentage as to see who's a better player? Come on man!

    highly doubt it. This is a guard league now.
  4. What do you think Tyreke's value is?

    Rebounds: DeAndre Jordon is tied for 1st with 14.9 RPG, Gasol is 17th at 8.6 RPG Blocked Shots: DeAndre Jordon is 36th at 1 BLKPG, however Gasol is 9th at 1.52 BLKPG Field Goal Percentage: DeAndre is 2nd at .66% Gasol is 112 at .41% By the way Jordon has 7 more double doubles than Marc.

    In addition to that, the purpose of a trade is to benefit both parties (teams). If the Grizzlies trade Gasol to Cleveland for Thompson + Brooklyn pick, it'll be a steal for the Grizzlies. The oldest team in the NBA will be even older, and it'll give the Cavaliers no success for long term future. The Cavaliers are just stuck. In order for the Grizzlies to complete this trade to Cleveland two things must happen. (1) The Grizzlies should throw in two second round picks (2nd round picks aren't guaranteed a contract and the chances of them lasting in the NBA for a long period of time is slim, and (2) LeBron must agree to the deal.
  6. What do you think Tyreke's value is?

    Yeah, if DeAndre Jordon is not going to put the Cavaliers over the top, neither will Gasol. Jordon is better than Gasol, which is surprising to me. However, that's based off of Gasol's decline, not Jordon's improvement. Crazy how a player can just decline automatically when he gets "that contract." Gasol was the best center in the NBA before signing his contract, but ever since he signed the dotted line, he has decline. Yes, 33 has a part of it and losing Randolph and having an injury plagued guard in Conley hurts as well, but still. The Cavaliers need that pick because its a young player that the franchise to look forward to if LeBron leaves in the summer. Can't just get rid of that pick to get rid of pick, especially if the return does you really no good in winning a championship, and LeBron leaves as well. Lets say if the Cavaliers do trade Tristian Thompson and the Brooklyn pick to Memphis for Marc Gasol, and LeBron leaves as well. Then you have the 2018-2019 Cleveland Cavaliers that is going to have a 34 year Marc Gasol a 30 year Kevin Love, and a 33 year old J.R. Smith. Doesn't look good. And the city of Cleveland is not a premier destination for professional athletes for free agency.
  7. LA Lakers @ Memphis 1/15/2018

    To increase or try to increase Tyreke's value? Yes. Conley will be back after the all star break for sure.
  8. LA Lakers @ Memphis 1/15/2018

    Good question. I don't think he has even attended a game in Memphis this year. However, he usually attends a game out in California when the team is out there. Even Peyton Manning was at the game in Denver on Friday, and I believe he attends a game in Memphis every year.

    Yeah, thats bologna. Steph was a superstar in the making when Marc Jackson was there. We all knew it was coming. You can't blame the help that Steph gets as well. Thompson and Draymond Green were drafted, can't blame Steph for that. Even Harrison Barnes was drafted. Iguodala came via trade and stayed through the free agency. All of them succeeded and brought into the analytics and strategy, which won them a championship, and 73 games. That was the ingredients of getting Durant. Can't blame Steph for that. Help? Russell had to go after Paul George and Carmelo Anthony. LeBron always have to make that one trade during the season to bring him a 'specialty' player. Harden went after Chris Paul and sign guys like Eric Gordon and Ryan Anderson. But Steph is the only that needs help?

    I'm sorry, but Trae Young is absurd and he's the closest thing to Steph Curry as it gets. He'll get stronger as he gets older, but he hit a step-back three pointer today against TCU. He's a quick passer as well.

    If y'all are considering that Doncic guy over Trae Young, you're nuts.
  12. Who Could Be Traded?

    I don't see us trading Marc Gasol. However I think Tyreke will go first, Brandan Wright will go second, and Ennis will go third.
  13. NOLA @ Memphis 1/10/18

    Love Tyreke, but the guy throws up a lot of shots.
  14. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    Honestly, if the Grizzlies were to trade Gasol for a first round pick, I'd rather the pick be in 2019. I just feel like it'll be better to draft a player, build around that player, then draft another player for the 2019 draft. Parsons is done. It's just a waiting game, the good news is that after this season, we'll enter the back nine of Parsons' contract. Only 2+ years of misery left.

    All they want is money, if they want is a championship ring, would've gone somewhere else.
