no - even a broken clock is right twice a day.

Was ed davis and/or austin daye ever mentioned here?
What about Chris Johnson?

TP was mentioned once or twice but not with any real debate/conversation.

maybe on some very small level they may check for insight from a fan point of view but i wouldn't think it weights much on them making decision for the team

Please no. I mean, there will be coincidences, but for instance I doubt they got the idea of signing Bayless from me throwing it around during the summer. Or I hope they didnt.

Yeah they read everything written on the site, that's why we're trading all our players and blowing the whole team up :P

Like someone said, he is an All-Star after only one post. If it really is him, it's really cool that he's willing to listen to and follow us fans. No matter how outlandish and just plain idiotic some of our posts maybe....

we all voiced loudly about Haddadi during the olympics in 2008 and they went out and got him so it definitely can work.

but other deals came totally out of the blue like QPON, Cunningham. I dont think anyone mentioned him. And before that if you came on here and didn't think critically you would have thought Chuck Hayes from the Rockets was the best player available in the world and would suddenly make the Grizzlies #1 in everything. Thank god they didn't listen!!!!!

Ronnie Brewer. Allen Iverson. Return of Shane Battier. Return of Jason Williams. I'm sure they listen to the fans on some of those deals.
