  1. If I am not mistaken, there was a murder just outside the Forum a few years ago. I don't have a problem walking to and from the forum. When I attend games, I usually park at the location off Linden and B.B. King (just outside the guitar factory). However, it depends on where you go at night and who you're with. If you park near Huey's and Peabody, I think you're fine because you're usually surrounding by people. I'm not going to get into statistics or anything like that. But when I see murders that are senseless and stupidity, it makes you feel uncomfortable walking anywhere at night, regardless where you are at.
  2. A winless February is exactly what the Grizzlies need. The Grizzlies, who are now losers of 11 games in a row, does have a pretty easy March in terms of the schedule. However, how does this compare to the other teams that are "rebuilding" or "tanking"? Current NBA Standings on March 1st 23. Chicago 20-41...........21 games remaining....11 at home......10 away.......12 games vs. opponents under .500.........9 games vs. opponents over .500 24. Brooklyn 20-42..........20 games remaining....8 at home........12 away.......9 games vs. opponents under .500..........11 games vs. opponents over .500 25. Dallas. 19-43..........20 games remaining...9 at home..........11 away.......10 games vs. opponents under .500.....10 games vs. opponents over .500 26. Atlanta 19-43.........20 games remaining....9 at home.......11 away..........5 games vs. opponents under .500....15 games vs. opponents over .500 27. Phoenix 19-44..........19 games remaining....9 at home.....10 away..........6 games vs. opponents under .500.......13 games vs. opponents over .500 28. Memphis 18-42.......22 games remaining.....9 at home......13 away.........9 games vs. opponents under .500......13 games vs. opponents over .500 29. Sacramento 18-43......21 games remaining.....13 at home.....8 away.........9 games vs. opponents under. 500.......12 games vs. opponents over .500 30. Orlando 18-43......21 games remaining......12 at home.....9 away........11 games vs. opponents under .500......10 games vs. opponents over .500 Grizzlies remaining schedule: vs Denver, @ Orlando, @ San Antonio, @ Chicago, vs Utah, @ Dallas, vs Milwaukee, vs Chicago, vs Denver, @ Brooklyn, @Philadelphia, @ Charlotte, vs Los Angeles Lakers, @ Minnesota, vs Portland, @ Utah, @ Portland, @ New Orleans, vs Detroit, @ Minnesota, @ Oklahoma City
  3. Even if TA and Randolph was still in Memphis, tickets would be relatively cheap. Probably in the $4-$9 range for terrace level seats. Tuesday night, bad Phoenix team, no Bueno. Nobody goes to Broadway and watch bad performers perform on stage.
  4. Grizzlies on FBI/NCAA List

    I thought about 2. There's way too many guys that leave college as Freshmen that just aren't ready (Kobi Simmons for an example). However, the NBA and NCAA has got to workout something this summer.
  5. To me, he's an average coach that complains a lot. And whenever we lose games, I feel like he is talking about the same thing over and over again in his press conferences. I will put him in the group to be considered to be hired, but I'm sure there would be better options that are available.
  6. Congrats, you do that. But I'm not talking about you. I'm talking about the fan base as a whole. Yes, Predators fans show up, don't get me wrong. However, When the Titans played Jacksonville in a win and go home in December, crowd was average. In addition, whenever Seattle, Green Bay, New England, and Dallas show up, their "fans" invade Nissan Stadium. And please don't give me the "weather was terrible" talk, I won't buy it.
  7. If you want consider putting West Memphis, Tunica, Hernando, Olive Branch, South Haven, and Covington into the Memphis population that's fine. However, a lot of people don't because all of those towns that I mentioned with the exception of Covington aren't in the state of Tennessee. Meanwhile, Nashville is fortunate enough where their counties has towns that are rising in terms of population. When a lot of people think about Nashville's population, they will include the suburbs that aren't in Davidson County. However, they will include Memphis' suburbs in the population because it's in Shelby County, but won't put West Memphis, or any of the Mississippi towns because they're not in the state of Tennessee. And yes, those fans will show up for their Preds, but that's it. They won't show up for Vanderbilt football, or Vanderbilt basketball. Even the Titans games are poor at times in attendance wise.
  8. Potential Offseason Trade

    2nd round picks don't mean s**t in this league
  9. Potential Offseason Trade

    No because if that trade would be accepted. The Grizzlies would not have a 1st round pick in 2018 and 2019.
  10. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    Are you Chris Wallace?
  11. Fire Chris Wallace NOW

    That part doesn't matter to me really at all. Even if Tyreke does play on Sunday at Oklahoma City, the Grizzlies would still be huge underdogs. Tyreke knows where he stands, and if Denver and Boston was offering him multiple 2nd round picks and a expiring contract, Tyreke knows he is worth something. Therefore, Tyreke should ask for a buyout before the March 1st deadline, then sign with potentially Cleveland or Boston. The Cavaliers now have two open roster spots due to the trades they were able to pull off. Which they'll be aggressively in the "buyout" market. If that does occur, then Chris Wallace would receive even more heat for letting him go and receive nothing in return, when you had options to get something in return. I would've trade Evans to Denver for Mudiay and a 2nd. With Mudiay being 21, he's still young and has somewhat potential, meanwhile the 2nd round pick wouldn't be worth much anything. Kind of have to strike gold with that. What worries me is that we do have winnable games in March. Phoenix on 2/28, Orlando on 3/3, Chicago on 3/7 and 3/15, Dallas on 3/10, Brooklyn on 3/19, Charlotte on 3/22, LA Lakers on 3/24, and Sacramento on 4/6. If we win half of those games will put us at 23 wins. I doubt we'll win the other games, especially this month.
  12. 2018 trade deadline thread

    Every player is on the table. It's a business. When the Grizzlies actually be competive once again, Marc will be 35+ and have an expiring contract. Therefore, he'll pretty much be useless. That's why you trade him now so you can get something in return, therefore, he's not useless.
  13. 2018 trade deadline thread

    Man, never thought that James Ennis, Marc Gasol, Tyreke Evans, Mario Chalmers, and Brandan Wright were all on the table, however, James Ennis was the only that we traded. We put Tyreke Evans on the block, hoping to get a first round pick in return knowing the chances of that happening is 35/65. We put Tyreke Evans on a plane to Indianapolis, only for the Grizzlies to pretty much tell them "you're done as a Grizzly, we appreciate your efforts and contributions, but you'll be traded." Lou Williams getting a contract extension should helps the trade value of Tyreke Evans in the quantity amount of teams. However, seeing that Williams' will now only get $8 million for the next 3 seasons, told Memphis and Wallace, "hey, we'll sign injury prone Evans for 3 years which is less than $8 million, we'll take it" Overall, defiantly not happy with Chris Wallace. If Kolby Altman made all of these deals, surely Chris Wallace make a few. We have got to fire Wallace and Hollinger, and Pera should go ahead and sell. Pointless that our owner lives in California.
  14. 2018 trade deadline thread

    No wonder nobody is trading with us. We're not good trade partners. Just saw on Twitter that the Grizzlies asked Philadelphia for Dario Saric for Tyreke Evans. That's a hell no. Wallace is a complete idiot.
  15. 2018 trade deadline thread

    that's why I said if.
  16. 2018 trade deadline thread

    I will say this, Chris Wallace has received a ton of negativity from fans. However, if Chris Wallace is able to find a 1st round pick or some sort of value for Tyreke, that would go down as a great sign for Chris Wallace. Tyreke for $3.3 Million, and flipped that into something that's worth. Granted, Mike Conley's "injury" has helped out a lot.
  17. 2018 trade deadline thread

    Yeah, you're funny. There's no way Tyreke has a 3 year extension from Memphis. Would be a Chandler Parsons all over again.
  18. Memphis @ Atlanta 02/06/18

    Are there any tickets for sale in this game?
  19. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    Conley was a winner at Ohio State? Duh! He also had Greg Oden with him as well. Oklahoma is 16-5, number 2 in the Big 12. Right now, they're arguably a 2-3 seed.
  20. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    Way to be pessimistic!!! If we have the number 3 pick and take Knox or Sexton over Young, we're a laughing stock.
  21. 2018 trade deadline thread

    It's a head scratcher for the Pistons in the Griffin trade. Griffin is not healthy at all times (more healthy than Parsons (duh) & Conley though). However, his salary will increase over the next 4 years. Yes, Detroit Basketball got a star that has potential of a superstar, which he can be at times. However, shut out to LA for getting a 1st round pick and Tobias Harris out of this. Don't expect the 2nd rounder, and Avery Bradley to be the real focus point. Boban Marjanovic will more than likely replace DeAndre Jordon. Clips are the winner of that trade.
  22. San Antonio @ Memphis 01/24/18

    I know, that stuff irritates me.
  23. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    Understand your point, but Young has played consistent in each game (probably except their game against Kansas State). However, consistency means that you're not a fluke. I'm sorry, but Young is legit, and if you pass up on Young because you're scared that he won't perform on the NBA just like he will in college, that's fine. But I'll take Young over the Ayton 100% percent, I'll take Young over Bagley because Young is more beneficial in the NBA. Want to be successful? Get a guard that can shoot 3's and shares the ball. I'll take Young over Porter because of obviously, health.

    He leads the nation in scoring and assists though.
  25. Oh so you went from "bolts at the first chance he gets" to now "they got their money and then got the heck out of dodge." If they got their money, then they entered free or agency or close to free agency to get their money. If they didn't agree to the extension, then they would wait it out to free agency. I hope you understand the money, free agency, and all of the financials that goes into it...retarded mfer.
