  1. Grizzlies Getting New Color Scheme Next Year

    I don't dislike it enough to make a stink about it, but they definitely didn't improve the logo.
  2. Fire Chris Wallace NOW

    I'm in complete and total agreement with this thread. But I don't think things are going to get better after firing Wallace if a) the ownership situation doesn't get sorted and management hires another puppet as a gm. Right now Pera's cronies have the best of both worlds. They pull all Wallace's strings behind the scenes and let him take all the punches in the press when things go wrong. Do I know this for a fact? Of course not, but there is so much dysfunction and inconsistency of vision displayed by the organization's moves, that it can't possibly all be the work of one guy, can it? The funny thing is, in a vacuum, if you legitimately have a hold of vibes that you can keep Tyreke for the mid-level this summer, then holding onto him isn't the worst thing in the world. I don't agree with it and would have preferred assets or a "second draft" guy like Mudiay (as mentioned above by IIWII) but at least that's a somewhat justifiable position. The real issue is, yet again it's something that blew up in such a "Grizzlies way." And the fact that I can say that last sentence and everybody knows what I mean. Whether they get a top 5, 10, 15 pick in the upcoming draft, the decision of what to do with that pick will be a major pivot point for this franchise. I have zero faith in the Grizzlies' leadership group to maximize it.
  3. The more i think about it the more I'm not too sure about that. I think Wallace is the ideal GM for him: Someone you want to trot out there as your puppet to face the people and take the punches, while your homies call the shots behind the scenes.
  4. Who Could Be Traded?

    I hope everybody is on the table. The only person I wouldn't trade right now is Conley because I think he's worth more when he's playing, but hey if there's good value out there for him then I'd go for that too. Some of the young guys like Brooks/Simmons are fun but none have enough upside to hold me back from moving them if they're the sweetener needed to make a deal that could lead us to a future difference maker happen.
  5. Mike Conley interview for The Undefeated

    This, so much. I hate seeing people make this about a subset of them on either side. Hell, Hollins too. As a collective, these dudes have us the GNG era. I'm thankful for each of their involvement. They formed the foundation of something that was beautiful, special, unforgettable, for many of us. For many reasons it never should have been. For many reasons it should have been better. For all of these reasons and more, it captivated us. And now it's time to build again. Something new. Something exciting. Something that will reach many of us and many others, in many different ways. That's what this game is all about.
  6. KBM's draft thoughts and opinions

    My top 5 so far. Haven't watched a game of college and probably won't until the tourney, but who needs real knowledge when you have hype and highlights? 1.Bagley 2.Porter 3.Trae 4.Doncic 5.Ayton
  7. Memphis @ Phoenix 12/26/2017

    This. In part, that's the new "modern" game, but this was one of my complaints about Fizdale from the start of the season. The whole offense was a Mike and Marc two-man game with 3 other guys standing around. Works when those 3 other dudes are long range bombers, but when they suck it just accentuates how little the defense has to worry about them. I'm not saying teams should be out there running Tex Winter sets, but some off ball screens and cutting never hurt anyone...
  8. Zach Lowe ESPN article

    He's always thought of Jarell as a "frisky" player.
  9. We have the 3rd worst record in the league

    We'll end up somewhere in the 8-10 pick range which i think it's fine. Of course higher is better, but you can scoop some serious talent there to set yourself up for success going forward. If young/future assets could be had for moving Gasol/Conley, now is probably time to do it, but I can't kill the FO for not. We all know the edict for how to run the franchise is coming from the top, not CW.
  10. Countdown to Marc Demanding a Trade

    I've been watching a lot of his GLeague highlights lately. 2 things are for sure: 1. He sees the floor well. I like his passing out of the post. 2. He's not the type of big man that small teams can get away with dropping a 2-guard on him. Love his moves on the low block. I wasn't happy on draft night because I really wanted Bell, but if I've proven anything over the years it's that I would be even worse at drafting than Wallace is, if I was GM. Rabb looks like he could be a good get.
  11. Wallace seemed like a total wreck in the press conference. I wonder if he even had a hand in the Fizdale decision.
  12. David Fizdale Fired.

    Unbelievable. Heads should be rolling, but what the hell was Fizz supposed to do with this group?
  13. Hammer, nail, coffin: this run is over

    I think the front office did what it was supposed to do. Ride this thing until the wheels fell off. Whether they have done so to the best of their ability is a question that remains to be answered, but at the end but at the end of the day this has been the best era of Grizzlies basketball since the team has entered the league in the 90's. Why not cherish it while we've got it? Now the troubling decision making has caught up to them. Whether you traded or used them, you can't expect to be successful with nothing to show for 7 years worth of draft picks. So at this point we're scrambling to fill the roster up with lightning in a bottle guys. As we have now seen, it's tough to win that way. It's been a good run. I've always been against going into a rebuild when you've got a pick to lose in the balance (to Boston next year), but it might just be time to get this thing going.
