  1. Memphis @ New Orleans 01/20/18

    tonight is not the only night Reke has been "cooled off" compared to what he was doing. Its only natural that other teams will scheme to stop Reke when they play the Grizzlies because we really dont have much else with Mike hurt and Chandler.....well.....being hurt Chandler like he is. Reke has been drawing a lot of attention defensively lately as he should. And yes, NOLA having Davis/Boogie does make it doubly hard for Reke since a lot of his game is getting to the rim.

    thank you. JB has this tendency to see a player get hot and he rewards said player by immediately taking him out for a long long rest. Maybe the hush hush....tanking plan has made its way to the coaching staff.
  3. Memphis @ New Orleans 01/20/18

    hey, Im with you. I hope he keeps it up. He has that NBA body. He plays defense--he played Kawai as well as can be done for a rookie last year in the playoffs. I hope JB will use him more and not take him out right as he is blowing up. Let him get a little more run then give him a short blow and bring him back. I think he kept him out too long tonight in the 4th, but then again, are the Grizz really wanting to win this game? I asked much earlier in the thread if there had been any talk of Mike and how he is progressing, but no response. So if Mike is just going to be hanging out practicing a little bit but never coming back, then play Selden, Kobi, Rabb and let them get some valuable experience.

    Reke was 3 of 16 tonight for 12 whole points. I am not sure that he can be Tha Man. We are not seeing as many of those 26-30 pts games from Reke as we were. Teams are figuring out ways to bother him, harass him, make him feel uncomfortable. I just cannot believe that a team like MEM could not use a 7-1 center who is about as smart basketball wise as ANYBODY in the NBA . He might not be the focal point like he has been, but players like him dont come around to MEM that often and to trade him just does not feel right. If we were trading him, we would feel like he is worth a 1st round pick plus a little more and I just dont know if we could get that for him, so then we would be just giving him away and we cant just snap our fingers and go get another player like that. Its a tough decision. But if you trade Marc, you will alienate Mike. Its a tough situation. Im looking at tonight where completely shorthanded bigtime we just about pulled off a nice road win vs a team that has a lot to play for. Maybe Kobi Simmons and Rabb and Deyonta and Selden, Martin need to play much more and develop while we.....shhhhh.....tank.

    I see, okay. Reke is interesting but he is showing now that teams that game plan for him are giving him problems. When he was with the 2nd team, he was able to go rogue and freewheel. When he becomes the center of attention and coaches like Pop start scheming to stop him, not sure he is all that as much.

    EFF Jrue Holiday, just EFF him. Sick of his arse
  7. Memphis @ New Orleans 01/20/18

    interesting. Doing that means a couple of rough rough years. Bagley (if we do the tanking thing the right way), Rabb, Davis being the CORE and getting rid of Marc and maybe even Mike means, at least to me, total rebuild. Now it could be exciting, I grant you that, but its rolling the dice for sure. The thing that makes MEM different from many teams is that we have to "rebuild" just about entirely through the draft and we have proven time and time again that we dont draft well. FAs are not flocking to come to MEM. We are not a destination team. You burn Marc and Mike and we REALLY arent a destination. We are in full rebuild mode. Hey, who knows? Maybe Im holding on to the past too much in wanting to keep Marc and Mike. I freely admit that could be true, but your scenario, while very interesting, is scary as hell.
  8. Memphis @ New Orleans 01/20/18

    I guess JB is waiting until there is no hope of winning the game before he brings back Selden (with 28 pts). He was hot as a firecracker and as per usual, had to get him out. Okay he got a blow now bring him back.
  9. Memphis @ New Orleans 01/20/18

    so sick of Jrue Holiday---JRUE???? what kind of name is that? anyway, apparently we have NO ONE who will guard him. He just decides he will go to the rim or jack a shot--no worries. We just cannot stop him.
  10. Memphis @ New Orleans 01/20/18

    is that the same ankle he turned in the season opener and missed like 3 weeks??
  11. Memphis @ New Orleans 01/20/18

    so you want to get away from Marc? You want to trade him? (I hear ya about Chandler. It was a long shot that Wallace took and it backfired, but I keep hoping against hope).
  12. Memphis @ New Orleans 01/20/18

    Holy Moly, Selden with 26 through 3 qtrs??? What has gotten into these guys??? LOL
  13. Memphis @ New Orleans 01/20/18

    WOW we have cut it to 2????? Guess I will have to watch and get us back on the tanking train.
  14. Memphis @ New Orleans 01/20/18

    Ive stopped watching. I assume we are down significantly and I guess in the overall scheme of things, that is a good thing. I am becoming more and more a fan of the tanking scenario, but I dont want to trade Marc. I would love to keep Tyreke and figure out a way to be able to pay him. Brandan's money will be coming off the books. Surely there is a way to do it. Anyway, I want MBIII (Marvin Bagley the 3rd) and I want to combine him with Mike, Marc, and Chandler if the basketball gods will ever let him play for any extended time again. Then I think you have something you can work with. You have a young up and coming franchise changing player who might make MEM a bit more attractive for some FAs. But if you trade Marc away, I doubt if you would get what you think he is worth and then you are pretty much saying its a full fledged rebuild and who knows if Mike wants to go through that. I think we have seen that when Mike and Marc are healthy, the team can be competitive with anybody. Add MB3 to them and Chandler (if he is ever healthy again) along with Tyreke (or another youngster provided you can turn Tyreke into a good pick) and you have something.

    wow Selden made that shot after 20 secs of absolutely NO player movement on offense. What an offense! It truly is "offensive."
