  1. Does Fizz's system fit the current roster?

    You do realize Dillon, Jarrell, Andrew, Ben, and Wayne are all under 25 years old, right. They all have either been a major part of rotation or figure to be rest of season. Brandan, Reke, Parsons, JaMyke, and Ennis are all under 30. Not sure why you think Fiz isn't playing younger guys and promoting development. Unlike yourself i understand the logistics of our roster construction. Right now it just isn't feasible to introduce a new element into the rotation until everything else is sorted our first. I think until JaM is back close to 100% - that Parsons will remain a reserve. I think the next move made to starting lineup will be Ben bumping either Brooks or Ennis to the bench. I hope it's Ennis. Brooks is the better scorer and defender and that is needed more than Ennis 3pt%.

    That would be nice but whose spot should he take in rotation? Fizz is already struggling to integrate the new guys now. Adding Rabb would be suicide.
  3. Oh he cost us the close games but yes in retrospect, Conley and Gasol being bad are the biggest culprits. Yes there is no reason for him to ever play 2G.
  4. You know you may be on to something. Rio is still too busy trying to prove for his next contract but doesn't have the ability to justify that anymore. As much as i want to start Tyreke the numbers show that he is better with BW than with Gasol. After watching last game i don't want anything hampering Reke from staying in "get buckets" mode.
  5. Trust your eyes, it was just a coincidence.
  6. Does Fizz's system fit the current roster?

    I don't understand the criticisms either. He has been the perfect fit for that bench unit that's uber productive. I also hope to see more BW + Gasol combo in the future too. Rebounding and defense looks much better when they share the court together.
  7. Does Fizz's system fit the current roster?

    in regards to present production. yes he is overrated right now and injuries are considered part of the score.
  8. Indiana @ Memphis 11/15/17

    They did calm that down after one of the earlier games this season. I think re-introducing the new guys caused them to revert back a bit.
  9. The grizzlies have 2 problems with the starting unit

    Yea getting the complete picture should help calm down the overreactions. I was ready to completely remove Ennis from rotation until I saw that he is basically the only truly injury-free dudes on roster.

    This version of Tyreke makes top 40 easily. Parsons is actually a solid player with the only caveat being continued health. They are both underrated. Unfortunately, Mike is turning out to be the one that's overrated.
  11. The grizzlies have 2 problems with the starting unit

    Listened to Peter Edmiston's podcast and gave a run down of all the players issues. Mike - Out maybe for 2 weeks Rio - minutes restriction Parsons - minutes restriction, soreness Marc - still dealing with ankle Dillon - knee soreness Wayne - mins restriction - conditioning Ben - minutes restriction - conditioning JaM - minutes restriction - conditioning Only guys not dealing with any limitations are Brandan, Tyreke, and Ennis. Dang that is rough to have to navigate and makes it difficult to get a consistent rotation. However, we can't afford slow start again against HOU. Starting lineup needs better chemistry Starters: Rio + Ennis + Parsons + JaM + Gasol Bench: Reke + Ben + Brooks + Wright Selden probably needs to be odd man out for now. Too difficult trying to get both he and Ben going.

    That last layup was missed due to Brandan hanging on rim too long and shaking it. That affected the bounce of it.
  13. Does Fizz's system fit the current roster?

    Yes and that is exactly why i am more patient with Grizzlies. In order to be effective we need more cohesion than the "superstar laden" teams. That has always been the recipe for us. Constant shuffling of lineups sabotages that cohesion and leads to losses. Unfortunately, with guys returning from injury and being out due to injury - there isn't much that can be done to prevent the shuffling.
  14. Does Fizz's system fit the current roster?

    It's almost hard to believe how many fans are underestimating the impact of that. Hell the Cavs, LAC, and OKC are all having issues integrating new pieces but somehow the Grizz are supposed to be able to do it with no problem. I like Ennis but he is a low impact low usage player that is completely dependent on transition buckets and playmakers for his scoring. JaMychal is the same way and so is Ben. Brooks can actually create off the bounce and handle the ball decently, along with playing solid defense. I think as last night's game illustrated yet again. It is more important to get off to a good start than it is to have a super strong bench. Unless Fiz plans on promoting Parsons to starting lineup then Dillon deserves the spot IMHO. Ennis should be the next guy looked at for demotion in starting lineup.
  15. Grizzlies Signed Tyreke Evans

    I still think Evans should start but if he doesn't want to that changes things. And you never said that his camp said he prefers that. You didn't provide any links there bud.
