Again, the reason you have a 3 year plan is because your young players are going to have to develop. Now, if the grizzlies get to 3 year point and they let their players go, then that is something to gripe about.
We don't need more talent, more than we need our current talent to develop and gel. If we go out and spend money on a free agent like Randolph we just screwed our cap space for what? Maybe to go to the playoffs. I don't think so. Until mayo and marc develop, which is going to take more than 1 quarter of a season, my god!, we don't need to bring anybody in.
That strategy hardly ever works.
The best strategy, most time tested way, to get to the championship is to draft a superstar and let him develop, once he develops add players to compliment him. We have that player now in OJ Mayo and it is only a matter of time before the grizzlies are going to be really good.
i definitely disagree. we do need more talent.
we need more bench talent.
we need more PF talent.
and we need rudy/mayo/gasol and a pg to progress and refine their talent.
if one or any of them labors and takes to long, it needs to be recognized and addressed to get more talent.
the statement "we dont need more talent" is shocking. i understand the context but that phrase in of it self is stupid.
i didnt say anything about randolph and i didnt want him. hes not the right player.
im also not saying spend money just to spend it or get generically any talent.
josh smith was/is a perfect fit. maybe it was a front but at least they tried.
boozer or milsap would be a great fit.
bosh might be a solid fit.
i would like a defensive minded PF banger that can shoot the 3 or at least has a vast array of post moves.
im not talking about temporary winning with randolph and another weak playoff run, im talking about giving wallace the green light to get talent and that his main objective every day is to be as active as possible to find any and every deal we could possibly do with gasol, rudy and mayo more or less off the table (depending on the deal of course).
obviously i understand mayo is going to take more than 1 quarter. i dont remember placing any blame on him.
flat out, more talent that fits our goals in weak positions and the bench will result in more wins which may also include more talent at the coaching position.
its hard to argue right now we could even get more talent than oj as it appears he's over flowing with it.
again, the idea that we dont need to bring anybody in is stupid. sorry, but it really is.
ill remind that the 3yp is actually the 2YP now and if you think this team as is, will be set in 2 years you need to come off your OJ high.
i didnt realize the celtics drafted KG, Allen or Posey. odd. or that the Lakers drafted bryant, gasol or fisher.
no we're not a large market but if you expect to win just on OJs back you can go talk to AI about his time in philly or pierce about this time in boston until all that UNDRAFTED talent filled the lockers next to him
we need more talent in various places. the end.
