  1. With The 32nd Pick In The 2018 NBA Draft

    Wagner could be the next Nowitzki. Roll the dice and reach for greatness in the 2nd round
  2. With The 32nd Pick In The 2018 NBA Draft

    Moritz Wagner, 6'11" deadeye shooter from Michigan.
  3. He definitely deserves a chance after what the front office put him through this past season. Glad to see this happening.
  4. Pete Pranica calling Playoff Game

    I read his Twitter. Interesting reading from him how Air Canada lost his luggage flying non stop from Memphis to Toronto. https://twitter.com/PetePranica
  5. Pete Pranica calling Playoff Game

    He'll be calling game #3 of the Pelicans-Blazers series from New Orleans tomorrow night also.
  6. Ping pong time.

    We just can't have one or two of the very long shots sneak in and grab the top spots pushing us to 5. That's my greatest fear.
  7. Thank God ESPN just pulled our last national telecast which was April 4th at New Orleans. Hopefully they'll put on some more entertaining YMCA ball. I'm mad, embarrassed and want this season over. On a better note, I did profit $75 on my two tix for tomorrow's Lakers@Grizz game on StubHub. For some reason, there's a really good demand on the secondary market for that game. Maybe it's the Grizz lunchbox giveway.
  8. What's disappointing is occasionally Martin looks like a NBA player. He always seems to play hard, gets to the right spot, and has a nice touch from 10-15 feet. Other times, like last night, he just seems to run around with no purpose. Of course that was pretty much everyone last night.

    The silence is deafening. Something has to happen soon to stabilize ownership and management. We just can't go into the offseason with so much uncertainty. It's unfair to the players, market and most certainly the ticket buying fans. The term 'throw away season' has never been more true. As a lifelong Memphian and ticket buying fan since day one, I am very angry. Mike Heisley would at least tell you exactly where we stood.
  10. Memphis @ San Antonio 03/05/18

    I feel like that guy on 'Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom' right before they rip his heart out.
  11. Train Station In Memphis

    No, it's actually in a 'hipster, gentrified' part of town. Very cool with lot's of bars and restaurants.
  12. the preds are awesome baby.

    They better ride it while they can. Aging players, front office turnover, bad management decisions will be staring them in the face before too long. They are the 2013-2015 Grizzlies now, on top of the world.
  13. Marc Gasol "Frustrated" over Season

    Welcome to the club Marc. We're all frustrated over this season. The sooner it's over, the better.

    Chip, can you confirm this? You seem to be plugged into the info stream a little better than all of us. I would definitely rather have Pera as controlling owner than Kaplan. I'm afraid Kaplan would reinstate Jason Levien as GM. We sure don't want a return to those days.
  15. Just take it easy there big fella. Here is a Q and A from the Commercial Appeal a couple of months ago when this all started: " Q: Goodness. Any other protections we should know about? A: Actually, yes! In order to persuade local owners to kick in money to buy the team from Heisley, Pera — and this is according to an NBA document from October, 18, 2012 — “has granted a call right to the other owners at a price equal to his invested capital in the event he files with the NBA to relocate the team within 15 years of the closing date of the transaction.” In other words, if Pera tries to move the team any time before 2027, the local owners could — and certainly would — buy it from him for the money Pera put into the team. Q: OK, but what if Kaplan buys the team from Pera? Is he bound by those same terms? A: Absolutely. If Kaplan tried to move the Grizzlies before 2027, the local owners would have the right to buy the team from him. The only murky part is price. Obviously, if Kaplan makes a lucrative bid, either he or Pera — whomever emerges with the team — would ultimately have more equity in the franchise. Would the local owners have to account for that increased equity in their purchase? It makes sense that they would." Let's just worry about getting the Grizzlies good again.
