  1. Past hour
  2. Anybody got updates on Mike and Noah for tonight? I think Avery is still out for another game or two.

    Don't dismiss JV

    Memphis has given JV the freedom and minutes to play his game. My gut says he opts in next year. I keep thinking back to that interview of 3-4 weeks ago when JV said he was house shopping in Memphis. Not something you would be doing if you were planning to leave.

    HTTPS certificate expired

    Yeah, I am getting the certificate error for the last 2 days when I log in to this forum. But once I get past the error message everything seems to be working normally. I'm not sure who to contact either.

    I want to hear why we dont keep JV?

    Yeah, before his injury you could really sense that he improved his BBIQ and play making this season. And that is really beginning to show since he joined the Grizzlies and the Grizz gave him the freedom (and minutes) to be himself. I could really see him having a breakout year next season.
  6. Today
  7. Yeah, that was strange. Since he joined the Raps, it seems like almost every time he gets the ball it's like he just received a hot potato, and he tries to pass it off to someone else as fast as possible. Does he like to keep the ball moving or is he suffering from a lack of self confidence?
  8. Yeah, I watched the game and agree with you. The Raps do have more talent than the Grizz right now, but I still think they are having issues with that talent meshing and there's only 3 weeks left until the playoffs.
  9. No doubt! I am impressed with the way some guys stepped up their game last night (Dorsey, Holiday, Parsons). Even JV - he played 41 minutes! I can't remember the last time he got that many minutes. He had pretty good stats to go along with all those minutes.
  10. 29 points, 3 rebounds, 9 assists, 1 steal. Looks promising.
  11. It was a factor. So was not having Mike, Avery and Noah.

    every NBA player wants to showcase their stuff every night, JV, MC or the GOAT are no different...re auditioning for other teams, hell ya...the NBA is a hard nosed business...there is no more loyalty between player and team, the player with the FANS and city, yes for sure...but what the Raptors did to Demar is a really good example...and what Lebron did to Cleveland shows it the other way just as much. Can the player objectives and team business co-exist..I guess so because look at what these guys are making? And that would not be the case if owners were making 2-3% a year like my bank account... Go JV and go Grizz...these two can exist and both win.
  13. It takes guard play to finish games in the league. They will still be bottom 5 over the next two years if Conley is removed and the next two years are better drafts.
  14. Not really on topic for the forum, but is anyone else having HTTPS issues? It looks like the certificate expired on March 21st. I'm new to the forum, so I don't know who should be contacted to solve these types of administrative/IT issues.
  15. The reason why trying to convey is stupid is because of Jaren. As Jaren matures, he will artificially elevate our team record making it harder to tank and get a great pick. We should have turned toward the tank at the trade deadline. Has there ever been a draft in which a quality player was not available after the 8th pick? So to willingly not want to add a quality young player to Jaren as fast as possible is crazy.

    30 years old with knee problems he needs to go
  18. only if he goes for 25pts 5 reb 7 asst Saturday
  19. I agree. He looks a little stiff on defense. May have to be instant offense to justify playing his defense.

    Can the player fans be a reason not to want to keep him...

    I want to hear why we dont keep JV?

    Has anyone here suggested they don’t want to keep JV or is this just a thread of player fans being player fans?

    I think there is still so much potential to be unlocked in JV's game. I mean him handling the ball so much and making decisions with the ball, even the aggressive drives where he dribbles more than 2 times, ALL of that is basically new for him. He never had the opportunity to make those decisions ever. He is basically a complete rookie with 13 games of experience with those plays. So sure, it's nor very refined so far, he turns the ball over quite a bit, but you can clearly see the enormous potential in his passing, his driving and all those little things. Some of those quick passes he's been making, you'd never see him make on the raptors. Even those hockey assists, where his first pass is key for the second logical pass that leads to the open shot, he makes very calculated decisions on those with very purposeful timing. It's probably the most amazing part of this change of scenary and his sudden evolution. The scoring and rebounding was kind of expected with increased role. Everybody who followed JV for the last few years knew he can be a very efficient 20&10 guy if given the opportunity, but all those other high IQ plays are coming to the forefront and are a way more surprising and overwhelmingly positive signs of yet untapped potential. They way he's playing and his decision making improving, I can easily see him average 20/10/5 and couple of blocks next season, which would probably put him in the AS game and propel him in to the top 5 elite bigs of this league.

    Memphis Grizzlies at Orlando Magic - 3/22/2019

    Delon was disappointing to me tonight. Quiet game, needed to step up in the 4th when the Orlando swing was on, seemed to just freeze, he seemed to me he didn't want to take shots or attack the rim. If he wants to be a future starter, he needs to do better at taking the game by the scruff of the neck.

    Memphis Grizzlies at Orlando Magic - 3/22/2019

    Even the best have bad nights at the stripe, even LBJ He's only 23, we shouldn't expect he is gonna be a go-to buzzer beater. This is where we missed Mike and even Avery tonight. To stop the panic and settle down when the run is on against us in the 4th. The words for this is experience and poise.

    Lets be realistic guys, JV is showing quality right now, and gets what he needs in Grizzlies(minutes and a game where he can shine), however, it comes down to the fact, if he wants to win something or at least try to achieve something in the league, with Grizzlies, this would be a difficult situation, however with some other teams if they want him/or he wants to move, ho probably would have a greater chance. If his okey playing for Grizzlies, with a hope to end up in the playoffs next year, he will probably stay, if he gets 15m yearly, and other teams won't offer more $/or other benefits. but as of now, JV has his wings opened(which were locked by Casey/Nurse),and now since being traded from raptors, he can show his real strengths and skills, and even improve, I still hope, this is just the beginning, and he will be hitting 30/10/5 soon enough. #
