  1. Zach Lowe ESPN article

    He's always thought of Jarell as a "frisky" player.
  2. We have the 3rd worst record in the league

    We'll end up somewhere in the 8-10 pick range which i think it's fine. Of course higher is better, but you can scoop some serious talent there to set yourself up for success going forward. If young/future assets could be had for moving Gasol/Conley, now is probably time to do it, but I can't kill the FO for not. We all know the edict for how to run the franchise is coming from the top, not CW.
  3. Countdown to Marc Demanding a Trade

    I've been watching a lot of his GLeague highlights lately. 2 things are for sure: 1. He sees the floor well. I like his passing out of the post. 2. He's not the type of big man that small teams can get away with dropping a 2-guard on him. Love his moves on the low block. I wasn't happy on draft night because I really wanted Bell, but if I've proven anything over the years it's that I would be even worse at drafting than Wallace is, if I was GM. Rabb looks like he could be a good get.
  4. Wallace seemed like a total wreck in the press conference. I wonder if he even had a hand in the Fizdale decision.
  5. David Fizdale Fired.

    Unbelievable. Heads should be rolling, but what the hell was Fizz supposed to do with this group?
  6. Hammer, nail, coffin: this run is over

    I think the front office did what it was supposed to do. Ride this thing until the wheels fell off. Whether they have done so to the best of their ability is a question that remains to be answered, but at the end but at the end of the day this has been the best era of Grizzlies basketball since the team has entered the league in the 90's. Why not cherish it while we've got it? Now the troubling decision making has caught up to them. Whether you traded or used them, you can't expect to be successful with nothing to show for 7 years worth of draft picks. So at this point we're scrambling to fill the roster up with lightning in a bottle guys. As we have now seen, it's tough to win that way. It's been a good run. I've always been against going into a rebuild when you've got a pick to lose in the balance (to Boston next year), but it might just be time to get this thing going.
  7. Grade & Rank your Grizzlies coaches (so far)

    I can't argue with any of Chip's rankings. I think Fizdale has potential to climb two more spots on this list long-term, but has a long way to go and with this roster he's got an uphill battle. Also, while i know that the "modern" offense is just an opened up floor with pick n' rolls, I would love to at least see some creativity out of timeouts.
  8. The grizzlies have 2 problems with the starting unit

    The problem is that aside from Mike, Marc, and Reke we've got a team of really good 8th men. I like all these guys and they're fun to watch, but you can just tell if they're not bringing it 100% the talent's just not there.
  9. Hello, Dillon Brooks!

    Haha! I'm pretty sure GTG lost his edge when he gave up coffee. Slim, I lol-ed pretty good at that OJ post.
  10. Hello, Dillon Brooks!

    YES! Was hoping somebody went there. What do you think Grizzly Grit is up to these days? Must be hamming it up in the GMB hall of fame with Lioncub and Lil OJMayo
  11. Marc's Ceiling Elevated due to Zbo's Absence?

    I know, I've been bad this year! Which is odd because I'm enjoying the start to this season way more than previous ones. Just trying to keep myself in check I guess
  12. Marc's Ceiling Elevated due to Zbo's Absence?

    I don't want to be a buzzkill, but I think this aggressive version of Marc is going to come and go as the season wears on. While I do think there's plenty of merit to the argument that without TA/Zbo around he's more inclined to go for it, we've heard this song with him before. Right now he's in the best shape of his life and the stars are aligned. When the Grizz hit a tough stretch and lose a few games, will he keep powering through or revert back into his shell? It takes incredible willpower to fight your natural impulses when the situation becomes more mundane and less favorable. All this being said, I'm going to once again enjoy #AggressiveMarc like crazy while it lasts!
  13. Who Do The Grizzlies Lose?

    Yep - he signed a 2 year deal with the Grizz in 2012. They traded him the next summer.
