  1. Memphis Hustle

    Yeah, especially with Wright (somewhat) back in the rotation.

    We're just a Darko away from being as entertaining as the Iavaroni Grizzlies
  3. Memphis Hustle

    Kobi Simmons is with the Hustle for these games, right? What about Rabb?
  4. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    That's a fair criticism. However consider that he's surrounded by several good scorers in Real Madrid, not to mention Goran Dragic in Slovenia, so he's usually not required to score a lot (still, 16ppg in 25mpg is nothing to scoff at). A more interesting quality is his ability to score in bunches and take over games in critical stretches. I think what I would like to see from him in the rest of the season is if he has the ability to assert that kind dominance over an entire game, which probably won't be called for until the playoffs because Real Madrid is going with a 10-11 player rotation at this point. And this gives me an excuse to put this video here. It's a bit old but the stream of expletives from Real Madrid's coach (tactfully removed from the subtitles) crack me up every time.

    I have to be honest, I still have to watch a lot of the other guys in order to compare. I wouldn't want to pass on a better player simply because I've watched him more. But in the end I'd be ecstatic if we drafted Luka.

    My approach to tanking is you set up the tank by resting players or giving lots of minutes to the bench, but you still try to win every game. Not sure what we're trying to do though.

    I can't watch a game and not want to win. It's unnatural.

    Doubt it. Best case scenario is three months, and he's saying he won't rush it. He's also saying he might not declare (which I guess will be influenced by how low he falls in the mock drafts). http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/story/_/id/21946110/michael-porter-jr-missouri-tigers-rush-return-back-surgery

    To be fair, rookie Mike Conley wasn't exactly the hottest thing out there.
  10. Who Could Be Traded?

    Nobody should be off the table but we shouldn't do a fire sale either. Most GMs can smell the blood of a desperate franchise from hundreds of miles away. And who knows, with a young elite player in the roster we could be back in playoff contention next season (I'm skeptical but I don't rule it out).

    There's a huge cultural problem with people calling common colds "the flu." It has created this image of the flu as a benign disease that in the end is just a nuisance. Actual influenza is a very serious disease that at the very least needs to be managed so it doesn't lead to life threatening situations. It's usually a bigger threat to infants and the elderly, but every so often there are seasonal strains that affect young, healthy people the most. And that's not even getting to pandemic strains like the 1918 flu, which is the stuff of nightmares.

    Ennis also carries his early Bird rights in a trade.
  13. Who Could Be Traded?

    I'm not sure what the market for McLemore is. His stock was very low when we signed him and his poor performance after the injury is not exactly a selling point. I wouldn't be surprised if teams asked us for a 2nd round pick in order to absorb his salary. Ennis looks more marketable. He's played very well in stretches and his expiring salary is big enough to be interesting. I'd be concerned with the contracts coming back along with a pick.

    Eh, I wouldn't go that far just yet. It's not a Brandon Roy case. I'm more concerned about him missing lots of games every season, especially now that he's still in his formative years. It will all depend on how far down he goes in the draft. Since he won't be playing any more this season and the hype will be focused elsewhere there is a good chance that he'll drop out of the top 5 completely.
