  1. Scrub-maniacs vs Tank-aholics

    I think you have it wrong. Honestly, I think gasol's critics were once zbo's critics. Yall just moved from: force-feeding zbo, to now, force-feeding gasol narrative. Ultimately any offense is meant to create space and action and easy buckets for the team. Marc commands double teams so it is easy to create space with the ball in his hands. If Marc is playing bad, I also contend that Fizdale should be to blame, since he built an offense that clearly did not include Marc in it. Marc is suffering what Aldridge has been suffering with. Both Marc and Aldridge aren't good enough to be like Tim Duncan was, so pop and probably fizdale respected the system more than those players. The point is that you really can't have it both ways. Tim, in his later years, accepted this role and thrived in it, but he was much older than gasol and Aldridge were when he was asked to do it. So. I still believe that there can and should be a happy medium, I just don't know what it is at the moment without Mike.

    Why exactly do you hate gasol so much? Is it because he got injured in 2015? Is it because he made 104 threes in 2016? Or is it because you think he got fizdale fired in 2017? Just not sure what your beef with him is.

    The grizzlies will likely make a run at the 8th spot, crap. Didn't want this to happen. But it is happening.

    It reinforces my point that fizdale built the grizzlies offense without marc gasol in mind, which was dumb.

    That's kinda like a chicken and the egg argument. Westbrook, Curry and Harden made it possible for Trae to even conceive that this kind of style was acceptable. The league finally decided to take full advantage of the no hand checking rule, along with the new analytics. Still, while Trae is further along than Curry might have been, nobody has yet ever put up a season like Curry did in 2015. The guy was unguardable. In 2014, and 2015, he was shooting .440 and .450 from 3. He has since come back to earth. Still good, but he can be guarded.

    I'm talking about Free Agency, also age. A lot of stuff. Lebron is on the downside of his career. I don't see him winning another title. Maybe if he decides to sign with Houston he might get one more. It really depends. LeBron alone won't get you a title anymore.

    The grizzlies would not trade Marc for Lebron James at this point. They certainly aren't going to do it for Cleveland's #1/Brooklyn's #1, so the issue is a non-issue.
  8. Free League Pass

    League pass sucks. I'd rather watch the game on nba reddit streams. Better quality and always free.

    So can we safely say that the grizzlies are definitely holding Mike Conley out of games?

    Nike ftw And actually the correct way to say this is that's boloney. You are actually calling his statement a large smoked, seasoned sausage made from various meats.
  11. KBM's draft thoughts and opinions

    Just about every player on this board has some questions which you've highlighted which has mostly to do with their transition to the nba. That's why I favor the athletes in the draft. Ayton would be fantastic if he had a little bit of Zo Mourning in him. Honestly, the brow would be too. The thing that set Shaq and Zo apart from the rest of the centers was their mean streak. David's biggest knock was that he was too nice, which anyon seems like that kind of player too. Bagley's entire transition to the nba and his warrant at the top of draft boards is if he can become a mismatch nightmare like KD, which is a tall order. I don't see that in him but I could be wrong. Porter has injury concerns. Luka looks really slow, and while it didn't bother Marc, since he is a center and doesn't need to be chasing speedy guards around the court, trying to run a modern uptempo offense will be a challenge for him. Trae Young doesn't have an elite skill other than "alpha" that I can see. Can Jackson become more than just an elite defender, can he become at least Serge Ibaka, if not better. Bamba doesn't hava an offensive game at all. Of all the guys on this list, the guy with the best combo of everything, and a guy that is getting better is Miles Bridges. I really really like Jackson, but I do have to admit that his scoring potential is a question mark. With Bridges I pretty much like everything about him as a player.

    **** it, Memphis is starting to play better. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Lead by none other than Drew Harrison.
  13. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    The biggest problem with the grizzlies is that they built an offense irrespective of their franchise player. Fizdale basically turned marc into a 3 point set shooter, which caused all sorts of problems. Plus Fizdale's defensive principles made us into the worst defense in the league. That's kinda why we have to get rid of Bickerstaff because the guy literally has changed nothing.
  14. So the grizz can offer reke about 4yr 40 million, right?

    The rockets gave away a first round pick last year for him and apparently re-signing him wasn't a consideration or didn't matter that much. I'm not saying that woj is wrong, but it ain't like deals like this ever not happen.

    he never gives up that's what I like about him.
