    Grizz Finally Get A Jersey Sponsor

    I like the alternates the best. I think they really could've benefited from using the same collar/sleeve design from the alternates on the home uni's as well or make the font just a tad bit bigger. The court looks good, though.

    Grizz trading Mclemore & DD for Garrett Temple

    Zach Lowe on his podcast with Kevin Arnovitz just expressed similar views on the Western conference playoff race. Jon Roser mentioned what he said about the Grizz "I am telling you we are sleeping on the Grizzlies if the two stars are healthy. Slo-Mo will help them. Garrett Temple will help them a lot. A year of experience for their young guys. The Jackson kid is interesting." Mentioned how Utah kinda reminds him of that Miami team that finished the season 30-11. Thinks they will be good and make the playoffs, but thought they may have overachieved last year. I'm actually seeing people saying they will win 50+ games next season. Said the only locks are Golden State, Houston and later mentioned the Lakers, which I agree.

    Grizz trading Mclemore & DD for Garrett Temple

    You were just arguing with me the other day about how our team had veterans on it in prior years and that's what helped us with our great defense. Refs allowed them to get away with certain things that younger guys can't. Now, we add a solid 3D vet to a young team that may take the place of a younger guy without the respect from refs and you still wanna downplay it lol. All of this is ASSUMING we have a top 5 pick in the 2nd round come 2021. At the end of the day, we don't know how that pick in the 2nd round will end up. What I do know is that we are trying to give up our pick next year to Boston making it closer to the bottom end of the 1st round as possible, so there's no serious pick debt owed. We got the better player in the trade and a guy that can help us this year achieve that. Ion like this version of Dwash. We use to agree on a lot and now we at odds. What's that about? Lol

    When playoff time rolls around and we are there, none of it will matter. Martin will have the ability to play more during the playoffs than Len because teams aren't trotting out multiple 7 footers every night.

    I feel like if the trade was reversed where we sent out Temple for DD, Ben and a 2nd, I don't honestly think anyone would care more about the 2nd round pick over taking on the worst player in the deal and giving up a quality rotation guy.

    I think we're done for the most part. None of those guys (especially Okafor who doesn't play defense) helps us. Too much emphasis is being put on having a 4th/5th true big, when its not necessarily needed. Even if Marc/JJJ go down, there will be guys in free agency to pick up. Either way, none of those options are going to make us better, so we are good as is.

    Actually, it wouldn't surprise me if Temple starts at the 2 and Dillon becomes the 6th man everyone wants Marshon to be. Who knows.

    Temple is probably locked in as a backup 2 or 3 I'm sure. Either way, he's definitely playing.

    Teams generally go 3 deep with their bigs. It was always going to be JJJ backing up Marc. They can run JAM/JJJ, JJJ / Marc, JAM/Marc...not to mention we have several guys that will play small ball 4 too. Forgot about Rabb too

    Grizz trading Mclemore & DD for Garrett Temple

    Grizz traded away dead weight for a rotational guy who's been solid over the last 2-3 seasons on an expiring contract. As some of you mentioned, this team apparently doesn't have enough quality rotation guys. Well, now we've added JJJ, Kyle, Temple and Casspi and basically lost Davis and Ben. Team will be able to switch on everything too.

    The Grizz continue to impress this offseason. Is this real life?

    I've mentioned this before, but Jevon really reminds me of Kyle Lowry when he first came to Memphis. Lowry was hurt in his first year, but I remember his first game as a Grizz and how he put it all on the floor. Fans fell in love with him before he got hurt. He was able to showcase a lot more in his 2nd year. I think the Pat Bev comparisons are okay for Jevon and that could be his floor. But, watching his creativity on offense and his ability to score the basketball seems more on the level of Lowry. Pat is not necessarily a shot creator, but he's better off as a spot up shooter. The heart Lowry played with, locking in defensively, quick hands, being physical, etc. all reminds me of Jevon. It'll be interesting to see how his career unfolds. His offense will come and go in his rookie year, but the city will fall in love with him if he does all the things that can help you win ball games. What's weird is that Jevon's offensive game is a little more polished coming into the league than Lowry at the same stage, however, Lowry did come in at 20 years old compared to Jevon at 22.
  13. What exactly did I spin? Lol. The DBPM is exactly where bballref had them. The defensive win shares are close too. You’ll probably say Kyle being head and shoulders better than every wing not named Covington in DRPM doesn’t mean much either. And don’t come in comparing Kyle to Dedmon all because their products of the Spurs system lol. I can go so much deeper into the numbers but it doesn’t matter at this point because I already know your stance on the team. You think we a healthy Grizz squad is going to suck and suck defensively. If im not mistaken, I never mentioned anything about a single player changing our scheme. I preach team defense and im a believer that we have several + defenders on this roster. JJJ/Marc together next year will be deadly defensively I’m sure as long as nothing crazy happens.
  14. I look at that Utah roster from last season and wonder how they won 48 games. They literally had one legit scoring option in that lineup after they traded away Rodney Hood. Mitchell averaged 20.5ppg Their next best scorer ppg wise was Rudy Gobert. Their best perimeter scorer after Mitchell was Joe Ingles. Nothing about their roster set the world on fire offensively, however, they were elite defensively. They had a ton of + defenders and DPOY who actually had a DBPM of 4.6 (Kyle Anderson had a 4.3 DBPM). We sit up here and talk about how Tony Allen lost his step for the last 3 seasons on here and now we act like he was the main reason our defense was so good. Yes, he was a big part of that, but lets not forget....we were an elite defensive team in our last healthy season . Lets not forget, in 2015-16, that same TA played in 64 games and our defense was outside of the top 10 because of we had no cohesion. We played 25+ players that year. The same reason why I think people are over exaggerating about last season. A team can be elite defensively and average/below average offensively and make the playoffs.We somehow made the playoffs in 15-16 without either offense/defense being elite. Utah, Portland, San Antonio, Boston, Miami all we mid-tier to below average offensively last season. Yet, those were your 2nd, 8th, 4th and 7th best defensive teams. That Spurs team without Kawhi last year was not that good on paper. That Portland team with those two great offensive options were not that great offensively. As I have to mention several times, this team when healthy is good. I look at the potential issues we may have and I can see other glaring issues with these other squads. Denver is probably going to be so bad defensively next year, it actually may not matter how good their offense is. Offense wasn't even their issue last year, yet they double downed on offense by adding IT. They were the 6th best offensive team in the league but was 26th defensively. When its all said and done, they are going to have to pull out those close games and get key stops when it matters. That's what kept them out of the playoffs last year.

    This has been my gripe about him. He needs to focus more on his playmaking. I still think the Steph comparisons are funny considering he's not as efficient of a shooter, while Steph always been.
