    There's an issue the coaches are not addressing

    Not sure anyone is blaming Jaren. Most rational readers blamed the change in rotation, if anything. Either way, Melton has been disappointing and like @GrizzTigerFan is suggesting, I don't think playing Justise is a horrible idea if Melton or others aren't playing well in the next game. It's now win or go home. I'm all for trying Justise or Konchar if Melton and/or Bane or whomever is having an off game.
  3. That's the scary thing about this league now, such reliance on 3 point shooting, these games can switch pretty easy. I don't think they need a hot shooting night to beat either team. They just can't have a horrible shooting night from 3, like 24% in the game vs. the Warriors. Of course, if someone like Steph is just going off, there just might be nights you can't win.
  4. And Sabonis has 2 points.
  5. Yeah, I just posted in the other thread. The very injured Pacers are teaching the inexperienced Hornets a lesson. Nothing like playoff intensity to see who can play, and how much better a young team needs to be.
  6. Not sure if any are watching the EC play-in, but in the Hornets v Pacers game, the young Hornets are getting blown out by the more experienced Pacers. It's like the older team knows there is something on the line and the younger team looks just ready to be done with the season.

    NBA Play-In Tournament: What it is & Why it is

    Pacers lose LeVert today. Very injured team. And they are beating the Hornets *** by 24 at halftime. Hornets learning playoff defense is different than regular season defense.
  8. Or gif, you can look at jv’s 12 for 15 versus our 6 for 25 from 3 and make the only case we blew it with our inability to adjust to the oldest truth in sports that will never change...just win baby. So sorry don’t agree with your view that is the way it is now...play Memphis ball not nba ball

    Grizzlies/NBA trade deadline 2021 and beyond

    Neither Ayton or Bridges are Restricted FAs this summer, but for some strange reason he keeps acting like we can bid for them this summer. It’s bizarre.

    We literally don’t have the money to do that. And even if we did, I wouldn’t

    Its not a criticism, simply an observation. And so he should feel as he is one of the leaders, he's the currently the longest tenured player on the roster, and his performances this season have earned him the status

    Grizzlies/NBA trade deadline 2021 and beyond

    Trader Danny took “low ceiling guys” with all those mid-first round picks. Should have taken bigger swings maybe. I am thinking we should make Godfather offers on some of the Restricted Free Agents. Ironically, my top 2 guys might be Mikal Bridges and DeAndre Ayton (both Suns guys). Pricey as heck, but a future Big 4 of Ja/Jaren/Mikal/Ayton would be nice (with Dillon Brooks rounding out our fab five). Then still go for “upside guys” in the draft. But if we sign Mikal AND Ayton (maybe the Suns don’t match front-loaded $30ish million contracts for both guys) then we can go BPA in the Draft from here on out since we would have Ja at point guard, Mikal/Dillon/Bane on the wing with a 3 big rotation of Jaren/Ayton/Jonas. Trade BC/Melton/Tyus to the Knicks for their 2nd first rounder (24 I think) and a future 2nd round pick. Also shop Grayson and Porter. Play hard ball with Justise and his camp....

    Sure I will!! He does need to get tougher. I've never said that Jaren is perfect, nor would I say he is a finished product either. Jaren has a lot of flaws, and some strengths as well, but at some point you have to decide which outweigh the other, and what you will accept. I'm not anxious to trade Jaren yet, but I would not say he is untradeable either.
  16. The May 14th game was not against a Western Conference Playoff contender (Sacramento). He missed one of the three losses (Clippers, Nuggets or Suns), all of which occurred before 4/22. The guy was trying to drive clicks with faulty data. 5-2 sounds better than 5-3, which sounds even better than 6-6 (Tillman's actual record as a starter). Might it instead be that the whole team got up more for those games early in the season, especially for the two games where they had just come off of ten days of rest against the Spurs who had played five games while the Grizzlies were doing nothing before coming in on the second night of a Back to Back? Would his message sound as good if it had been reversed? What if his point had been the Grizzlies were 6-6 with anyone other than Jonas starting at center, but were 31-27 with him starting, with season sweeps of the Nets, Heat, Hornets, Sixers and Wizards?
  17. Too bad you can’t or won’t say the same thing about Jaren Jackson.

    Grizzlies/NBA trade deadline 2021 and beyond

    In the position we’re in now we should consolidate assets. We run the risk of being a worst Boston as currently constructed. Boston make shrewd moves and got a haul for Pierce and KG, Drafted 2 young Stars (our Ja/Jaren equivalent) then proceeded to not consolidate the rest of those assets into anything. They made safe moves, signing Gordon Hayward (Not his fault but he was basically their version of Chandler Parsons), trading Terry Rosier for Kyrie (Kyrie being a primary scorer didn’t fit with Tatum & Brown), then refused to push chips in the middle of the Table for AD or Harden. They could be sitting with Kyrie, AD and Harden competing for Championships for the next 4 years, instead they are about to possibly miss the playoffs no longer ahead of schedule with no more assets. This off-season is pivotal for the Grizzlies and their team building efforts. They need to consolidate assets and bring in a 3rd Star, then add veteran depth to this roster around Ja, Jaren and JV. You telling me Chicago wouldn’t have to seriously consider Kyle, BC & Melton + 3 1sts and 2 2nds for Lavine? Then float Everyone not Ja, Dillon, Jaren or JV to build a legit veteran team with shooting around that 5 and what’s left. We’d still have all our future 1sts so we aren’t mortgaging the future and would still have flexibility to go all in later. But we can’t get Lavine... ok What about Jamal Murray? Denver is winning at a high level without him adding high level depth might be on their mind. Lonzo Ball can be had in free agency, 40% 3 pt shooter who is a very good defender and can run backup PG as well. This isn’t the off-season for the Grizzlies to sit on their hands. Regardless of how the end of this season turns out.
  19. We'd need a hot shooting night is all. bane and brooks just be hitting

    Jest? Sheesh!! I was attacking you?? All I did was point out that seem to have some vendetta against him. If you think that's a personal attack I would use @10SC-2-TOKYO's words and say "get tuff!"
  22. I hope they beat the Spurs but I think the odds are 50/50 at best. If they do somehow beat the Spurs, I don't see them beating the Warriors or Lakers unless that team has significant injuries with key players out.
  23. What has there been to be positive about since his rookie year? He has played less than half of the games played since he came on board, he still fouls far too often, he doesn't rebound well, the only development we have seen came on his shooting percentages last season and they dropped back down this year. What have I missed to be praising him about? However, the criticism this time wasn't leveled by me. I just made a quip about other people's criticism. Instead of attacking me for my beliefs, why don't you address the issue of Jaren's failure to block out Wiggins at a turning point of an important game? Why don't you attack the post and not the poster??? Or is it just easier to point fingers at a poster's jest instead of defending a player's mistake?

    It's sort of difficult, Chip, when I can't recall a positive post from you about the young man, other than maybe a back-handed compliment, in the last two years. Sorry if I misjudged your intent.

    I'm not all that great a fan of what Justise has brought this season, but I would have been open to trying him on Steph. Not sure how well he could keep up, but he, like Dillon, plays a more physical style of D, which IMO would be more effective than guys who play a more finesse style of defense.
