Will you please just tone it down?

Most of us care about the TEAM, not a single player.

Bayless's comeback, Mike Conley with another 20+ game, Zbo double double, Kosta with 4 blocks, and Tony Allen with another sick dunk. Better?

Come on, do you know who I am? Since when do I tone it down.

Grizzlies really need a win right now. It sure would make Thanksgiving sweeter if they pull it out in Beantown.

does anyone else want to see a Calathes-Pondexter-Miller-Davis bench rotation? sick of seeing Bayless just thwart the offense with his bricks and turnovers. Pondexter hasn't been great either but unlike Bayless he can contribute in other ways (defense, scrappiness, hustle) + since he is a spot up shooter playing he and Miller with Calathes could get them some good looks.

just my two cents.

I'm with you. Calathes makes things flow. And, as long as he has a shooter or two out there, the team can orchestrate some points. Bayless needs to play with Conley as a sixth man off the bench. Or, a three guard lineup with JB, Conley, and TA. The other lineups featuring Bayless are less than optimal.

After last night I don't want to see more than 3 bench players at a time (I'm now counting KK as a starter)

What did Pondexter do that was so bad that he got benched since the GS game? Didn't you think he had a pretty good game against the Warriors?

They won't be getting any good looks with Calathes in the lineup, the US Postal Service delivers faster than he does.

The reason Q isn't playing is because Gasol is out. Since Gasol is such a big playmaker for us, we need to have as many other playmakers on the floor to make up for his loss. That is why we are seeing Calathes. Moving Bayless to the 2 frees him up to basically shoot himself out of his slump but also provides more playmaking than having Quincy at the 2.

Bayless has 0 playmaking ability
