    No.  It's not sarcastic.

    Contrary to popular belief, Memphis is not L.A. or NYC or even Houston.  If they hadn't tied up 30 bazillion dollars on Parson, they could have offered bigger $$ to somebody to come here.  Where people don't want to go.  Not just #BuckFamba.  When was the last time Memphis was in the running for a big name free agent?  Just because you and I can tolerate the city of Memphis, doesn't mean other people want to put up with some of the issues.  

    From a few hours ago...

    Hearing for Sherra Wright, Accused of Killing NBA Star

    https://lawandcrime.com/live-trials/live-trials-current/sherra-wright/watch-live-hearing-for-sherra-wright-accused-of-killing-nba-star/

     

    How good is that going to make the bluff city look?

    We might be lucky Caspi and M. Brooks are already signed.

    Man that's nothing, husbands and wives kill each other all the time.

    You want me to change my opinion that I formed over months of watching college ball because of summer league? 

    I didn't have Jackson in my top 4, he was in the same tier of people as Knox. I have Jackson behind Bamba, Carter, Bagley and Ayton. 

     

    JJJ has good role player potential, the other four have all star potential.

    I don't see an all-star in 3J either unless he does some changing. Shoots from beside his face and has his left hand behind center of the ball. You can't be a good shooter shooting with both hands.

    I think we should shut him down for the remainder of SL and send him to P3 or a similar program so he can work on some core conditioning and coordination exercises ahead of the season.

    I didn't watch any films but Carter looks like a keeper to me. I thought he was 6-7 but he looks taller than that to me.

    Cool that teams already have to double and triple him

    He didn't show me anything when I was watching. His shot is terrible, he's pushing with his hand on the side of the ball 2. If a guy his size can't control the ball with 1 hand, that's bad.

    Smart is overvaluing himself but he is definitely worth more than a Tyreke, KCP, Avery Bradley, etc. 

    The salary cap spike and just the CBA in general has made this a really weird year for guys like him, Capella. 

    I hope Capella, Smart and others don't just take the qualifying offer and play for peanuts... some team ought to at least make Boston/Houston pay a real salary, some tax, etc. We should put a 1 year offer in for smart at MLE. At least make Boston pay that. I'd love to be able to do that with Capella too but we really don't need another big. 

     

     

    Wallace wouldn't do that to Ainge, he's about the only GM that has helped Wallace.

    He was a high draft pick and played important minutes for a famous franchise.  That is why most posters value him over those two.    But to be fair even though he cant shoot - he can create off the dribble and playmake.   That's really what separates him from those two.   

    Like i said I am not willing to do anything extreme to add him or Hood BUT i can understand the logic in FO pursuing them.     As it stands now the only young guys that really have shone any ability to create their own offense off the bounce are Kobi, Dillon, and Wayne.    It's kinda sad when the dude on the 2way contract is the best bet to develop into a legit scorer over the wings on guaranteed contracts. 

    Anybody we get is gonna have warts so may as well go for the guys that have some potential to improve. 

    I don't see JJ Redick creating his own offense.

    Celtics 60s

    Lakers/Celtics 80s

    Bulls 90s

    Lakers/Spurs 00s

    LeBron/Warriors 10s

     

    It has always been this way.  The teams that luck into the franchise players dominate over long periods especially if well managed. It seems we POTENTIALLY have a first piece in place.  No the key is to collect assets and build a strong squad around him.  IMO, it is all about JJJ from here on out. 

    I think the 60 Celtics drafted most/all of their players except the main 1, the Hawks may have traded Russell to them because Russell was black. They did have a pretty goo center though and  they got Cliff Hagan 2.

    Given the Lakers have signed Rondo, JaVale, and Lance, I find it hard to believe there was no interest from the Lakers to come in and play half a season.

    And I don't know what the Pelicans were thinking.

    They were probably thinking, we played better without him than we did with him. They offered him 20M a year for 2 years when he was hurt.

    I actually understood why they had to re-sign Conley, and I don't hate his contract (don't love it either). Small market and bad drafting necessitates overpaying for talent. But I agree that they should have traded Gasol, and possibly Z-Bo if they could get better value. I think When Joegger left, Sac would have traded Boogie Cousins for Gasol straight up. That would have placed the Grizz on a solid foundation for years to come.

    I don't think the Grizz had to overpay Conley that much.

    I thought revenue was shared under the last CBA.  Wouldn't that negate the windfall from a "zillion-dollar TV deal"?

    I think teams get to keep the proceeds from their own tv rights.

    I forgot about DJ Stephens.  Grizz bringing him in for Summer league.     I could see him being one of our Free Agent signings.  I think Edmiston mentioned we can sign a minimum guy and use some of the MLE to get another.   We dont 'have much to work with so i'd be surprised if we get anyone that is desirable. 

    How would ya'll feel about DJ + Hood as our big offseason acquisitions???

    Mike/Harrison/Carter

    Hood/Marshon/Ben

    Dillon/Wayne/DJ

    JJJ/Parsons/Rabb/Martin

    Gasol/JaM/Davis   

     

    Waive Ben or Jarrell or Davis to make them fit. 

     

    I wouldn't even consider waiving Jarell or Davis to get Stephens on the team.

    So the players and fans are punished for the failings of a manager, while the manager gets off scot-free and the executive protect themselves and the manager?

    When you own a team you can pick whomever you want, it was his team and he did what he thought was best for the team. No one lost more than he did.

    I don't think donk has a low ceiling.

    I think it is important to understand that bball smarts are just as valuable as is length and speed, etc.

    if larry bird were to come through the combine these days (as a young man)....I wonder what the experts would say about his physical stats.. im not saying at all that donk=bird. never, but I am saying that it is an important factor to keep in mind.

    these guys are not robots and this is still a game. heart and desire and mental ability have a tremendous deal within the equation.

     

    slim.

    I guess it would have depended on how much they liked his ability to FLOP. Drive, throw the ball up, holler and flop.
