  1. That is correct Mark- and the animosity did not kick off until they were already partners. It was some personal slights that really got the dandruff up is what I was told. Small thing sin the big picture but stuff that matters to folks who matter
  2. Yep I agree with you there Pat. Just on a side note though...I am not at all exaggerating how much these two dudes dislike each other. That part of it is very much true. They don't like each other at all. Some serious bad blood lol. **That said- I personally do not know them but someone who does know them has assured me that they do not like each other and it is a mutual thing.
  3. It is not quite that simple Pat. If one sets a price, the other can decline to sell at that price but turn around and buy out the other at the named price. The fact is the two guys HATE each other (I don't mean playground hate but real dislike). If one can crap on the other they will and vice versa. Best case scenario is that they manage to sell to the other (whichever one) and get it done cleanly. I don't hold a lot of hope for that happening or it would have already done so. There was a time when Pera had a better position in the big picture than he does now but Pera does still hold a lot of leverage. If I were to have to bet, I'd be that eventually Kaplan will sell his shares to Pera. But when guys get their dandruff up and those guys are billionaires, weird crap can happen.
  4. I agree we are put together pretty well (assuming everyone is healthy...big assumption) but for the rebounding like you said. I am afraid the rebounding is going to def be a nightmare though.
  5. Pera has no intention to sell the team.
  6. Yeah man I'm not taking anything away from Mike's ability- but his contract is pretty massive.
  7. I could see Marc getting moved....but I really don't see anyone taking Mike's contract. Maybe I'm wrong...but I don't see it.
  8. Fizz goes off !!!

    Nah I sure do not mean any disrespect in any way to the folks here. Nothing but respect in fact.
  9. Fizz goes off !!!

    Every statue or photo of Julius Caesar is a depiction of a slave owner. He sold the entire population of Gaul (those he didn't kill) into slavery. Every time you see a representation of a "Spartan"...slave owners. Same for Athens (so all those statues of Athena..monuments to slave owners). Pretty much all of Greek antiquity was built on the backs of slaves. Muhammad? Slave owner. I get what you are saying...but if you look at the broader picture of slavery you see it doesn't really hold water.
  10. Fizz goes off !!!

    In my opinion, it is difficult to impress our own realities on those who lived in different time periods. I think we can and all do agree that slavery is and was bad in any instance. Regardless of when it was or which people enslaved is not acceptable. But at various stages in history it was the NORM. Not just those from Africa but peoples from all parts of the world have had to deal with this scourge. I'd love it if we could, as a people, leave the history where it is and move on with our lives. I understand that to many there is still a wound and many people tend to pick at scabs...but I'd love to let those heal. There will always be dung holes of every color forever. Don't let those people dictate the narrative or prevent healing.
  11. What Does Marc Mean?

    I really don't have a problem with Marc's offensive game. Buuuut.....dude is over 7 feet tall and SHOULD be a better rebounder. No excuses.
  12. Grizzlies Predictions

    So much depends on health this year. IF the guys can stay healthy its not a bad team. Injuries could seriously turn this into a real dumpster fire though. And that is concerning given the people we are relying on to be healthy show no history of doing so.
  13. Okay, I've had enough. Let's talk about gng

    I wouldn't say the Griz will never be as good as the GnG days but I do agree with your general premise. Those Griz teams were good. Maybe not championship pick good but a team that if the dominos fell correctly COULD have won it.
  14. Ben Maclemore out up to 3 months

    Heh Tim it would have been ok in that know if we pick at the top of the draft our selection would have been a bust anyway
  15. Question Grizznation...Why....

    It is really something how consistent the front office is LOL.
