laugh.gif Keep freaking out peeps. Might as well take it to the next level.

Currently the Grizz and Bobcats would split the lottery slots in the 3rd and 4th position. Anthony Davis? Perry Jones? Andre Drummond? Thomas Robinson? Michael Kidd-Gilchrist? Bradley Beal?

I understand both sides - those freaking out and those holding steady. But I think those freaking out are mostly disappointed on the potential quick loss of last year's momentum.

This draft is so deep and there could be a bunch of productive NBA big men in it but there is no way Anthony Davis got to #3 or #4 for whoever picks there.

4 games into the season is a little early to start talking tanking/draft, but realistically with this roster and this schedule its not THAT far off.

If we aren't at double digit wins by Feb. its time to start thinking 2012-13

I don't think I'll ever agree with going into tank mode.

After just a few games this season, the top story for the 2012 draft right now is that the Bulls may have 2 first round picks, theirs and the Bobcats (top 14 protected). I'm glad we're not in the east.

Would it be wrong to tank for Harrison Barnes?

I actually agree.

I think Harrison Barnes is very overrated.

We won't be getting Davis unless we lose 50 games this season, which isn't likely.

this grizzlies team isn't bad enough to get a top 3 pick without lotto luck, it's like a 7th seed at worst. Still wouldn't be that bad to get a Terrance Ross or Thomas Robinson though

It's about as realistic as some of the names being thrown around. Mike Mooser is a REALISTIC guy that is the type of player I'd like the grizzlies to pick.

****. Even the T-Wolves are competitive in the West. No ZBo, no playoffs. WE ARE HEADED TO THE LOTTERY YAHOO! Andre Drummond and Anthony Davis are worth tanking for!

So if we end up with a top 3 pick and select Drummond or Davis, what does that mean for Marc and Zach? I think drafting our SG of the future makes more sense. Or else a PG who will show up at the end of a game.
