  1. Pete Pranica calling Playoff Game

    I do listen to many and the Grizzlies crew are mad homers. Not Spurs or Celtics crew level homers though. Brevin does know the game overall and knows about other teams. Pete is nothing special.

    They say Davis used to be a guard and grew but its not like he is a true perimeter player or something. He really isnt a great one on one player right now and does a lot of lob catching, set shooting and one or two dribble pullups to get his points.

    I think Bagley could be a Ant Davis type of player. He was a garbage man in college too.

    Bucks have offered more already and he is a RFA. If they dont beat that a team like Utah or Indiana would surely jump in. Any young player with talent will get more than MLE. Because the young teams have most of the caproom.

    It happens just about every year.
  6. Head Coach Thread

    Sounds like Chip is saying that if a coach comes in and appears to motivate his players to play better or strategically place them in situations to be a better team (countless examples of this exist so no need to rehash) that coach still shouldnt get much credit because the talent was clearly there to win all along. If he didnt have talent to win it wouldnt have happened so really he didnt do anything special but what he was suppossed to do.

    For a first time watcher I got something out of it. I am now educated on why you guys dont scoff at Euroleague play. A team of Adrian Payne, Chris Singleton, Marcus Denmon, James Gist, Mike James and Nick Calathes all with 5+ years of post college experience would wipe the floor with almost any college team except for maybe the most talented teams such as a Duke. All of these guys were very good college players and some have NBA experience. Except for James, who played in the NBA this year, they were all major players in big time conferences.

    Nick Calathes still got dimes.

    Im thinking Doncics average could go up by 5 points just by playing with a better ball cause that thing looks like trash. I wouldnt hoop with that at the y.

    With revenue sharing...yes you can survive tank seasons.

    I know everyone wants to make sure we get the pick absolutely correct and I get it, but I am willing to gamble on Porters back if he displays superstar talent. The reason is that pick to Boston. If Porter doesnt workout, you pay Boston the pick and just start clean with a rebuild in 2020. I know due to our lack of young talent everyone is high strung on this pick, because they want him to "save" the Grizzlies, but a nice rebuild period is coming either way imo. This isnt as important as the 2009 pick for example. That was basically the last high pick in the rebuild before the picks got worse and salaries started kicking in. They had to get that right to become a title team or the whole mission would end up falling short due to lack of talent (and it did)

    Thats kind of a loaded question. Some people would consider the Boston teams of recent years (pre Kyrie and sorta even pre Horford) that made the playoffs to not be that good. Those teams werent expected to do anything and just had a bunch of scrap pickups. It was pretty much built to tank. But people just look at the finished product and say "but they had x player!" and will neglect the fact that a guy like Isiah Thomas was considered a losing ballhog everywhere he went and was picked up for a second round pick. The point here...pretty much every NBA team has "talent." The talent starts to look winnable once you figure out how to get them to winning. So at this point how do you ever judge if they took a bad team to greater heights? Once you see the winning formula you can always justify how they should be winning. But you can do these examples all day. Had Indiana gotten worse and won 30 games after trading George for Oladipo...nobody would have blinked. It would have been expected. Ofcourse you got worse, you traded Paul George. No star talent. What do you expect from them. But when they get better, you easily forget how you would have never bet on Oladipo being an Allstar that can take a team to a 5 seed.
  14. You dont think having a quality showing in the playoffs, which he has barely played in, could help his stock on the free agent market? Really?
