Now that I see the facebook I wonder if there is another team in the league starting 4 white guys outside the Timberwolves though many of their fans are not very happy with Ridnour in the starting lineup.

When the only alternative at SG is Wes Johnson even a life-sized cardboard cutout of Kobe Bryant would be an acceptable option.

So apparently, Love has been suspended for this game.

Knowing that, I'm going to go out on a limb and call this an automatic win.

I wouldn't consider .500 "bad", the Wolves have just improved. Plus, we've been playing without our best player, and we've had a tougher schedule.

Let's not delay the inevitable here...

Start the tank job. Anthony Davis is waiting.

I haven't decided yet, I'm too disappointed in this franchise's decisions to judge my true emotions.

0.7 pts per shot attempted. Only takes 143 shot attempts to break 100 points at that rate.

OJ to start, we'll have 19 points lead in halftime. Rudy will have to play just 35 minutes.

Wolves are 12-12 Grizz are 12-13

We have a pretty good chance of beating another team that has a better record than us.

Thought I would show GTG a good example of sarcasm.

Dude, so according to you, if we lose, the TERRIBLE officiating we normally see has nothing to do with it, the fact that the FO has done poorly in providing depth has nothing to do with it, and you imply we don't have a good chance of beating the Timberwolves at home without Kevin Love just because they've won one more game than us. What exactly is your philosophy? To just say we suck and forget it?

Come on...

GTG, you are slipping back into your previous reactionary self. I suspected tough times would cause you to relapse.

Funny that your the only one who thinks that. :rolleyes:

If having confidence in the team, and believing that indirect factors can contribute to losses just as much as what happens on the floor is "reactionary" then I guess your right.

With all due respect, you should really be more open to a friendly debate rather than calling for a thread to be locked, or immediately write someone off as being reactionary when they something you disagree with.

I'm not trying to start an argument man, I just think it's a bit unfair to say the team is playing poorly when all of the contributing factors are not considered.

Sorry for the grammar mistakes, I'm typing from my phone.

By the way, I wanted to explain to you (and the board community as a whole) that I'm not proud of the way I used to post. I understand I was reactionary, outlandish in many of my claims, and even offensive at times. But after finally realizing that I was causing more harm than good, I decided to get my act together, and I've worked hard to build a respectable reputation with my fellow fans. It's a bit upsetting that you would say I'm slipping back into that posting style simply because I've said a few things you disagree with.

I'm just here cause I love the Grizzlies, man. But anyways, I don't want to argue, so let's just agree to disagree.

Ok GTG. We both love the Grizz. Didn't really mean to upset you. Peace my friend; and goodnight (or good morning as the case may be).
