  1. NIke going with a different approach for uniforms than Addidas did. http://news.nike.com/news/nike-nba-game-uniforms
  2. All Time Grizz Squad?

    Ren still holds the team record for most rebounds in a game, I believe.
  3. 2017-18 team salary

    So, since that is the projected start of the regular season, that would mean he made the roster. Got no problem with that if it happens.
  4. New Uniforms on the way

    Each team is releasing their designs. I've seen Warriors, Kings, Pistons, Blazers and Pacers so far. I expect the Grizzlies to continue with the white uniform as the Association uniform, the dark blue as the Icon, the MLK uniform as the Community and the neon blue as the Athlete.
  5. Silver: NBA Expansion is Inevitable

    Personally, the 90's don't even begin to be the top "talent" era. The level of competition in the 60's and early 70's was much more intense, with the talent much more concentrated in the small league. The games were more free flowing and much more offensively oriented. Even a "defensive" team like the Celtics averaged over 110 points per game, and that is without a three point shot. The reason this era gets overlooked so much is that there wasn't a National TV contract, so people didn't see a lot of games played until the Playoffs came around. There isn't a lot of historical footage to view. There is not a single picture of any play from Chamberlain's 100 point game. The only picture you ever seen is a post game picture from the locker room with Wilt holding a hand written sign saying he scored 100 points. In today's sports media, you would have been taken to the game midway through the first quarter to watch the performance.
  6. Where is OJ Mayo?

    We wouldn't have traded to get Zach from the Clippers. The Clippers would likely have shipped him off to some other team after drafting Blake the Flake. You have to remember we traded for Zach the year after we traded Love for Mayo. The Grizzlies did the Mayo/Love trade after they acquired Darrell Arthur later in that draft night. So, without the trade, the likely lineup that season for Iavajabroni would have been Conley/Lowry, Mike Miller, Rudy Gay, Kevin Love, Marc/Darko.
  7. JaM Ain't Going Anywhere

    Even if he goes overseas, we retain his NBA rights, so long as the Grizzlies maintain the Qualifying Offer. The only way the Grizzlies would lose his NBA rights would be if JaM took a full year off from any professional basketball play. No overseas play, a complete year receiving no pay to play anywhere. There are a few players that could pull that off and come back to a good contract, but JaMychal isn't one of them. If he wants to play in the NBA for the next few years, he and the Grizzlies FO have to come to some agreement.
  8. JaM Ain't Going Anywhere

    If he took a cheap deal elsewhere, we just match it and he plays here, so he can't screw Memphis.
  9. Silver: NBA Expansion is Inevitable

    Was their first hope, according to what I've read. But it seats about the same as FedExForum.
  10. Silver: NBA Expansion is Inevitable

    Another possibility is Kansas City, which use to be the home of the Kings, and they have built an NBA level arena .
  11. Draft And Free Agency '17

    Good article by David Aldridge at NBA.com about the salary cap situation and how it is effecting this year's free agent class.. http://www.nba.com/article/2017/07/24/morning-tip-unintended-consequences-cba-free-agency-2017
  12. Every Team's Projected 2017-18 Record

    Only in the last two or three years. Had a fifteen game losing streak there at one time if I remember correctly.
  13. For those who want to see all of the Grizzlies All time Leaders in various statistical categories: https://www.basketball-reference.com/teams/MEM/leaders_career.html
  14. Every Team's Projected 2017-18 Record

    I do, every season, as part of the Pick'Em Threads. I do all of my predictions for those threads before the pre-season even starts (since I do a pre-season thread as well). I start when the schedule is released, as I get a look at how many times we play the Warriors compared to how many games we get against the Suns; how many against the Thunder compared to the Nuggets. Which games are at home compared to away at arenas where we historically have problems (Denver, Utah & Phoenix due to elevation). If we play Denver twice at the Grindhouse compared to only once in Denver, I expect the Grizzlies to be more likely to finish 2-1 in that series compared to 1-2 if the schedule is reversed, or 2-2 if we play them four times.
  15. Every Team's Projected 2017-18 Record

    I never try to predict the season record prior to the schedule release. We only know the opponents in 46 games for certain (2 games against each Eastern Conference team and 4 games against the other Southwestern Division teams). The other 36 games are split as 24 games against six teams and 12 against the other four teams in the West. But we don't know how many games against which exact opponents we will get. Guessing results this early is worse than throwing darts at the newspaper blindfolded in order to pick your stock market investments.
  16. JaM Ain't Going Anywhere

    No, not laughing. More likely crying into his Wheaties.
  17. JaM Ain't Going Anywhere

    Just as an alternative if JaMychal is set on moving on, Jarnell Stokes is out there. Would be perfectly happy to bring him home.
  18. MEM Summer League Thread

    I think Selden played as much as he did to establish himself as a leader with this group of players.
  19. Summer League All-Stars!

  20. Well, I can't say anything about having troubles. My job has had me submerged for about the last three weeks. Finally caught my breath and pulled up the boards, expecting to need to read through fifty threads. I much prefer manageable numbers.
