  1. You misunderstood my point. In the original post, my thing was that I didn't see any way that ZBO would be re-signed. I took my feelings about it out of the equation and was looking at it purely as a "the writing is on the wall." Which is what happened. The grizzlies lost zbo for nothing. My laminating, so to speak, was more about my hatred for Tyreke Evans, more than it was about keeping ZBO. I am not a fan of his, nor am I a fan of Ben Mac. I am really not that upset that we lost zbo, it's more about what we decided to replace him with.
  2. Correct me if I am wrong, but according to what I am seeing, the grizzlies will either lose zbo or they sign him, his money is pretty much dead money in terms of him being waived: what I mean is that we won't get 15 million back in free agent money if we let him go. We get back nothing. We are up against the cap next year. In my mind, that means that we better trade him now. I don't see any way that the grizzlies decide to keep him going forward, unless by a miracle the grizzlies win the championship. We could trade Zbo for Darrell Arthur, a much better defender. Then ask for our #1 pick back. That would be an awesomely under the radar move: now we'd have Darrell as a Jam Green replacement, if somebody offers Jam a ridiculous number. Arthur is secured for 1 more years at 7 million, which means it would technically put us over the cap, but depending on what we do with Tony, we'd be over the cap anyway, and I like having arthur on the team.
  3. Who Do The Grizzlies Lose?

    You had a quote that you deleted which quoted grizztigerfan. I thought you said it so I added it in a quote, since many times your quoting style us to write INSIDE THE QUOTE, rather than outside of it, and when I try to quote you when you do that it is a blank quote, so I added the words back, and thought it was you when it was actually gtf.
  4. Who Do The Grizzlies Lose?

    I think the grizzlies have Chalmers an invite out of respect so that he can show teams he can play and get other teams interested in him. I don't think he is a serious candidate to secure a spot on the team.
  5. I'm not half as clueless as people think, apparently.
  6. I think we need to have a discussion about this. The thing is in the playoffs Jam grabbed a measly 3.3 boards a game. He was terrible. In the regular season, Ennis was even worse. The guy, in 23.5 minutes a game, only managed 6.7 points a game. I know he played decent defense but he was terrible in every other regard. Then you got Jarell Martin who is still playing Summer League despite having 2 full years in the NBA. The question we have to ask is, is Jam really as good as we think he is or is it smoke and mirrors? Also, how committed are the grizzlies are to Brandan Wright when Dede Davis and Ivan Rabb are behind him. I really don't know how all of this will pan out. But between the 4 of them we might not have one true rebounder on the team. Jam killed his good will by having a terrible playoffs. I am still not sure if Jarell couldn't actually do Jam's job better, but I'm almost willing to find out since Jam (the more I look at him) has a lot of holes, although he is our more versatile defender.
  7. Troy Daniels traded to Phoenix

    On Mike Conley's game tying shot against Spurs, Kawhi peeled off of conley because he was worried about Troy Daniels. And the girl with the pink headband approves!
  8. Troy Daniels traded to Phoenix

    He got Marc's respect. The last guy that got his respect like that was mike conley. So I trust that it will be a matter of time.
  9. Melo Traded to the Thunder, huh?

    I'm not sure about the whole leading the team like allstars. melo wants to play with friends. I do think he probably thinks pg and wessy are better. But that is beside the point. melo had a friend in okc, which helped him make the decision.
  10. Troy Daniels traded to Phoenix

    The grizzlies got Lance Stephenson and a first round pick for Jeff Green. They then turned that first round pick into 2 really high second round picks and nabbed a likely starter, if not more in dede Davis. Make no mistake, had the grizzlies not make that Jeff green deal they would not have gotten dede Davis. They also got 4 second round picks for clee, one being a Brooklyn pick. I think the grizzlies did quite well on that deal as well.
  11. Melo Traded to the Thunder, huh?

    No. Carmelo has been in the nba since 2003. Marc since 2008. And melo is nearly a year older. Let that sink in.
  12. Troy Daniels traded to Phoenix

    I don't know why you are getting defensive. This is exactly what you said: "and the NBA is going to get tough and call more fouls, so we won't be able to get by on defense either, most likely." To me what you are saying is the league is going to making it EVEN tougher for teams to play defense. I'm not sure where you got that from. I haven't heard about any rules changes that would indicate that. But even if THAT IS the case, YOU tell me then (since it was your assessment) how should the grizzlies respond to a league calling more fouls, what should be our approach?
  13. Troy Daniels traded to Phoenix

    Troy Daniels wasn't the fulcrum player between a team of shooters and a team of non-shooters. You are giving him WAY too much credit. Also, if you believe that defense doesn't matter because the nba is going to call more fouls, as your reasoning for saying eff-it and only get shooters. I'm not sure what to tell you. I'll just say, I highly doubt defense won't matter in the new nba. You sound like Lindsey Graham. If we don't repeal Obamacare we are going to have a signgle payer socialist healthcare for our entire lives.
  14. Troy Daniels traded to Phoenix

    Listen, I can't know what gets into you guys minds, when it comes to style of play. From the outside looking in, it looks a lot like the Obamacare repeal. Nothing matters but 3 point shooting. Just because the grizzlies have played a grind it out style for the past 7 years doesn't mean that we have to only have shooters are else we are not doing it right. You don't play basketball on the extremes, is all I am saying.
  15. Melo Traded to the Thunder, huh?

    actually what I heard was it was an okc assistant that convinced melo to give okc a chance, kinda like what Bernie biskerstaff Jr did for the grizzlies to land parsons.
  16. Troy Daniels traded to Phoenix

    If you were counting on td to be our shooting savior, lol at you.
  17. Troy Daniels traded to Phoenix

    so is that why people are butt-hurt. Cause the grizzlies didn't get an unprotected 2nd round pick, that we literally buy every year? again, when Wallace traded clee and green, he got a return. those players were worth something. td was not.
  18. Troy Daniels traded to Phoenix

    You really think Daniels had trade value? Like what exactly could the grizzlies got for him? an unprotected 1st round pick?
  19. #chancun

    And remind us how we used to be. don't forget that hehe
  20. Troy Daniels traded to Phoenix

    lamenting troy Daniels while saying good riddance to zbo. Daniels isn't half the scorer zbo is or was. And no he is not the only shooter. Parsons is still on the team and we have a lot of young talent that can shoot as well.
  21. Melo Traded to the Thunder, huh?

    Paul George is far from a lock to be there after this year. Melo is 33, aging vet, with a no trade clause and a small list if teams he was willing to go to.
  22. LOL, the dude rated Memphis 28th out of 30 teams. Good Grief.
  23. JaM Ain't Going Anywhere

    Exactly. Wright is terrible next to marc, and his knees would be done in 10 games if he had to play (OUR type of power forward game). Conley, Ben, Parsons, Jam and gasol.
  24. JaM Ain't Going Anywhere

    Without Jam the starting lineup doesn't make sense.
  25. Troy Daniels traded to Phoenix

    There was a reason that Troy hasn't stuck with any team. It's not only his terrible d, but he can't run an offense or handle the ball, and he has to be set up for his shot. The dude just isn't that good, but the facts are on this board where defense his become a four letter word, anybody that can make a few 3s is seen as Kobe incarnate.
