  1. The trade was a salary dump, folks. We didn't win it from a talent standpoint.

    Time To Free Tony Wroten

    I like the Wroten-Bayless backcourt. Neither are pure pgs, but together they are good enough. And they are both big and strong enough to guard sgs and fast enough to guard pgs. Pairing them together creates a lot of flexibility on both sides of the ball. And adding Gasol to the mix, which Hollins did last night, gives us a third passer/playmaker, making the offense even more dynamic.

    They are 3 1/2 games ahead of the Griz, and Chris Paul hasn't been 100%. Also, VDN has never been embraced by many in LA.
  4. Okay, sorry. I get it: the move hurts us but not that much and not as much as a bigger move. And many questions still remain unanswered.
  5. Your attempt to justify this as a basketball move is sad.
  6. I'm still kind of stupefied by this trade. I suppose much depends on who we sign. I understand that this trade was one way to get under the luxury tax threshold, and thus was motivated by financial considerations, but it doesn't address the underlying financial issues. It simply prolongs the inevitable. Further, this seems to contradict what the FO indicated just a few days ago when discussing trades involving Rudy and Zbo. Maybe I need to reread the CA as well as various tweets by local media, but I thought that the FO was not going to make a trade unless it made basketball sense as well as financial sense. Or does that only apply to trades involving Rudy and Zbo? Clearly, this wasn't a basketball move.You don't trade all that plus a pick as part of a basketball move. Then again, it may depend on who we sign. Unfortunately, thus far, the signal on that front is not good. I also don't quite understand the newest theory as to why the FO did this trade. According to some media outlets, the Griz may have made this move as a way to increase their bargaining position for any trade involving Rudy. If so, any trade involving him better be good because altogether it will have cost us our leading scorer, two rotation players, a prospect, a pick, and possibly more. My guess is that this was simply a middle ground move, a supposedly preferable option to the two extremes: either paying the luxury tax or breaking up the core in a record setting season. Although sometimes a middle ground compromise approach is necessary, my fear in this case is that a halfhearted approach will result in a commensurate outcome.

    What does Joerger know about offense?

    At this point, Wroten is another trick or treat type player. I fear for Hollins' health with two trick or treats in the same game.

    Touché, but I still don't believe in their defense. They gave up 131 points in a 4 quarter game to the Kings a few weeks ago.

    They give up 99 pts a game. And health and the additions of Jack and Landry have been big for them. Jackson has a better team to work with

    Yes, that's what I've been saying. There was more turn over in the starting line up

    No, it's not inaccurate. You are looking at individual players and their minutes. This site provides that, but it also includes composite stats for staters and bench players. Remember because of injury, personal reasons, or whatever, the "starters" occasionally miss games. Mike, TA, and Rudy have missed games this season. And all five guys who started the season last year missed games during the season last year. Mo started in more games than Zbo. QPon started in 8 games. Pargo started several. And so on. So the stats at that site aren't inaccurate. They are based on information from players who have actually started. It's not surprising at all that the starters are getting more minutes this year. There has been less turn over in the starting unit (the players Hollins wants to start). This ain't rocket science.

    Go to team rankings. Click on Grizzlies. Click on starters. See stats for 2012-2013. Click on 2011-2012. Click regular season. See stats for 2011-2012. The stats are based on boxscores for starters and bench.

    There's nothing wrong with the stats at the site. The have categories for starters and one bench, as opposed to individual minutes, based on NBA boxscores (Go to "team ranking" and click on "teams"; you'll see the different categories). Thus, it includes the times in which Qpon started, when Ellington started, when MO started, and so on. Play with site a little bit

    According to this http://www.hoopsstats.com/, they are. And remember last season, there was more turnover in the starting lineup due to injuries.
