  1. Let's gooooooooooooooo
  2. I think everybody might be back. I think the grizzlies might be interested in dealing Wright. TA, Vince and Zbo are all guys that help our younger players improve, and I also think seeing Manu and Tony do what they did in the playoffs against the grizzlies will convince pera that it is the right move.
  3. Going to the Stanley Cup Finals, babbby!
  4. The guy is 22 years old, and hasn't shown much. But it is guys like him who are just hanging around that you say hey they could make a massive leap. The grizzlies have kept him around for a reason. I think he could show Thad Young potential next year.
  5. I would love to move on from wright. Plus, early second round picks have many great players coming from that draft slot every year now. It is clear that there are usually talent 42 deep or more. Also I hope the grizzlies are aggressive on undrafted players after the draft.
  6. The Celtics were the #1 seed in the east and they are getting blown out by an inferior team by record in their league this season. Obviously you like to make points that are convenient for you. The reason the grizzlies thrive in the playoffs and are never blown out is because teams are going to slow you down in the playoffs and unless you can play in the half court, you might as well go home. IT is just like so many other analytics driven players that the league loves. A shoot first point guard that doesn't know how to run a team when he needs to. I know you hate conley, but there is no evidence that any of these players you worship can hold a candle to conley or chris paul for a true pg that can do more than just poop his pants when his shot ain't falling.
  7. It's very obvious that you are avoiding the John Wall discussion. Like the plague.
  8. I hate to see undisciplined teams win by fluke after being thoroughly outplayed. Congratulations your 4 allstars beat a d-league team. Nothing to be proud of.
  9. Most people believe that the grizzlies slow pace hurts conley, not helps him. But athletically speaking, sure wall is stronger and is more like a derrick rose, which conley is more like Manu. Crafty, but effective.
  10. Yes, to me, there is no reason to make any drastic changes this year. I'm fully aware that Marc really disappointed in the playoffs and sorta showed that he may not be the player we need him to be. But the problem is that the grizzlies are hamstrung next year no matter what we do. The truth is that the grizzlies are what they are, no cap and a bunch of question marks. I don't think trading marc really benefits the team. I do think that realizing who marc is and how we need to approach our offense going forward does benefit the team, if fizdale continues to open the game up for Mike. Marc guarantees that the grizzlies will have a good defense, and in spots, he's clutch, just don't expect more and you'll appreciate him more I guess. This team for better or worse is relying on development, development, development. We have many players on the come, and we are going to see if any of them show real potential.
  11. Pekka Renne!!!!!!!!!!!
  12. My point with all of these inefficient guards is this: is it really helping your team or is it really helping you get paid? The difference between Lebron or Kawhi, shooting 55% from the field and scoring 32 points a game, to a guy like Kryie or Harden or Lowry or any number of players shooting 39% from the field, 20 shoots a game is huge, and then turning the ball over at record rates is significant. The difference between Conley and Chris Paul, they don't try to make their teams worse by making sure they get their numbers. They take good shots. But again, Chris Paul came into the league when Hand checking was still a thing. Curry is great, but he also has the luxury of 4 superstars on that team, Mike doesn't have that luxury.
  13. John Wall is better than Harden, but I'm not sure why you think he is better than Conley, other than the fact he is another guy taking 23 shots a game and hitting under 40%, which apparently tells you he is an alpha male. Wall is probably more athletic than conley and he is a better pg than most of the other guards in this league, but he is not better than Conely at it, or Chris Paul at it. I'd put him 3rd behind them. 1. Chris Paul 2. Mike Conley 3. John Wall
  14. Let's goooooooooooooo
  15. Anybody that thinks that James Harden can run a team better than Conley just doesn't know basketball. That's a fact. Anybody that thinks Harden plays defense, lol. Anybody that thinks harden's turnovers are insignificant and doesn't matter is burying their head in the sand, literally the entire basketball universe criticizes him for it. Give me a break man. Harden's about getting that paper, and the only way he can do it is to jack up 20 shots a game and make it appear that he is a star.
  16. GOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL
  17. and it is always been my contention that Conley plays better on a bigger stage while James Harden's stats are largely empty, which again played out this year. it doesn't matter if you score 40 a game, if you choke when the game is on the line you are a choker. harden's regular season stats are all about getting him paid. Mike's stats are always trying to get the team a win. Kyrie is the same way, melo, and many other players. The brow comes to mind as well as dcousins.
  18. I definitely won't mind signing Jonathan Simmons, another Ennis type.
  19. Karl Malone and Stockton both got their teams to the finals, lol. James Harden ain't close to Barkley or Malone. And I beg to difer that people don't expect Conley to play well. The reason Harden is getting flack was because he was an mvp candidate this year, otherwise they wouldn't care about his playoff chokes, of which there are many. Similarly, Mike Conley, because of his contract was under the microscope and he delivered for the most part.
  20. James Harden is a stat padder that won't win in the playoffs. He'd look great next to a true superstar like Paul George or KD, but if you are expecting him to win you a tough series, you might as well not bother. Mike wins games.
  21. In 2015, you mean after he had metal put in his face 1 week before? Come on man. Also, I guess you don't remember that in game 6 of OKC Mike left in the 4rd quarter after only playing 30 seconds of it. Conley has some okay games in the playoffs, but usually his bad games are due to being hurt, and even then he can still put up great games like the game gainst the warriors where he put up 20 points after surgery. Please don't compare chokers to mike conley. You won't win.
  22. going for guards would be a mistake in my opinion. we should be looking to be better in our wings through development, but what we really need is a top flight rebounder.
  23. Oh yeah they would: they'd be all over him about his max deal.
  24. Mike is better than Harden and he proves it every playoffs. Just like Kyle Lowry, Harden is a choker and shrinks during the playoffs. Guys like Conley and Chris Paul rise to the occasion.
