    With The 4th Pick In The 2018 NBA Draft

    How many players at the wing position have the creative ability that Luka Doncic has? The guy has went to two straight European finals he was the finals MVP. You just rarely find a guy with that type of creativity at the position he's playing at. Usually Wing players are extremely difficult to integrate into your offense. That's why you have the so-called 3 and D players. It is really rare to have a 3 that can play on the ball and off the ball. We haven't had a wing player that could move like dontage can move along the perimeter since like Wesley Person. I just think he's getting the hype that he deserves. If the Grizzlies get him at 4 it would be a steal.

    Slim: I don't monitor what you do say or not, but when you ask what is the direction of this team and don't say make the playoffs, I just assume that you are one of the ones that feels Mike and Marc being on this team isn't part of your personal vision for the team. The long answer, if you want it, is this: that the grizzlies (other than trading Mike and Marc) have executed a couple of plans in the last few years. They traded jeff green and courtney lee, they let tony allen and zach randolph walk, they hired fizdale to transition from grit and grind, and even though they could have, they never hired hollins back. This year they shut down mike conley and they stategically held tyreke and marc out of winnable games to get a better draft position. Some would say that the grizzlies did this (trading vets, zbo and tony) KNOWING that it would hurt their chances to make the playoffs rather than help their chances. I don't know why you would trade those guys IF YOU JUST wanted to stick with the status quo. Nor would you hire fizdale if that was the route you wanted to take, keeping things the way they were. Firing fizadale doesn't mean much against this train of thought either as there was a lot that went into the firing, including the fact that fizdale wanted out. So, while there may be things to critisize this front office for, I don't think a perception that the front office is just keeping everything the same is a really all that valid. I might have leap to a conclusion with the short answer of mike and marc in my previous post. However, above is my real thoughts.

    I never said another poster was stupid chip, you need to go back and read that post. I said the organization would be stupid. You asked a rhetorical question that you seemed to know the answer to, in an attempt to be agressive toward my thought process. Which you do constantly. Let me just echo your words: I have an opinion, don't make it personal.

    Chip: why are you attacking my post with a rhetotical question, wouldn't that be aggressive behavior toward another poster?

    Also, let me say that before the warriors became the warriors, they had 17 losing seasons. 17, man. They were one of the worst teams in the league. It doesn't matter how you look at it, finding a core group of players that can get you to the playoffs is not as easy as just sucking. My whole view on it was that the grizzlies need to invest early in identifying the players that make up their core and KEEP them together. Instead of always looking to replace a player with better talent. I made a thread about it. The good thing about the grizzles approach is that they have kept Mike and Marc, otherwise this thing could go off the rails quick. But maybe that's what this board needs, a good 17 years of under .500 basketball to appreciate the fact of "Just making the playoffs." The warriors got lucky, plain and simple. But their luck is like winning a lottery ticket. Okc, got really lucky. Where are they at now? Trying to convince a washed up PG to stay with their team. The grizzlies could spend 17 years getting back to the playoffs, so the people that want high draft picks will have plenty of years getting them.

    The grizzlies plan was started a couple of years ago, to get younger, which they are doing, while still being competitive. The grizzlies plan last year after mike went down was to tank for a high draft pick. Which they did. I am sure the plan next year is to get and stay healthy and try to continue developing our younger players. You seem to want the grizzlies to trade mike and marc, which is not in the grizzlies plan. I for one would have liked the grizzlies to go with a coach that has a vision for the team. Also, this draft pick will largely dictate where the grizzlies go from here, what type of team they will be.

    How Do You Feel?

    Pretty excited. The grizzlies are drafting high for the first time in years. Even if the grizzlies pick Michael Porter Jr., which is my doomsday scenario I am going to be excited to watch him play, and still dreaming that he will come out and light a fire on this team. I am just glad that the grizzlies are a big player in the draft this year. I live for this shizt!

    I think the reason Cam said Kevin Knox I don't know this for certain but I have a hunch that he watched the ringer draft rumors video on YouTube and those guys were hype and Kevin Knox to the max. How he's only 18 years old and and that kind of thing. We'd be fools to take Kevin Knox at 4. I'm sort of wondering if the grizzly shouldn't try to go ahead and move up to the number two pick (offer the Sacramento Kings maybe the 32nd pick in the draft) and The Grizzlies take Luka Doncic. The Kings get a little something and they don't lose their guy Michael Porter Jr. It's risky if the kings move down further than the 4th pick if they want to make sure they get Michael Porter Jr. Luka Doncic is the real deal I thing I think. He certainly worthy to move up for in the draft. The 32nd pick in the draft will be okay but you know the Grizzlies are already maxed out on players. So you know it might be okay to just to let it go.

    I'd rather have Conley than Kyrie any day of the week. Just because the league values mindless scoring doesn't mean players who mindlessly score are better then the more well-rounded players. Anyway Zach Randolph was probably a top-five power forward for the last 15 years and he went to what maybe one to two All-Star games. The league is such hypocrites and such a terrible league. Anyways the game of basketball is great but the league sucks. They are constantly trying to make the game just about scoring and that's it and about super teams. It makes you not even want to watch basketball.

    I just looked at my profile and I just got a warning point for being abusive to other people on the board?????? I get no explanation of where my abusive post are at, except to say that several people have reported me for being abusive to other people. I mean I would let it go if I was being abusive. I mean how's my opinion being abusive to people. I know for a fact I haven't called nobody out. I don't get it man. Do people want me to really leave this board or something? I mean it's plum stupid that somebody would say that I'm being abusive to people. And then I get a warning point for it and no specific post show me where I'm being abusive. Lol. Okay man.

    When is the last time the Grizzlies had a guy that could do this: The freaking good ole days right there. Unbelievable that this team got broken up before we could ever do anything.

    Yeah that whole Mavs deal don't even make sense because why would the Grizzlies give up on Parsons now, after they spent two years rehab in his ***. Give me a break. Parsons could actually be good this year. He won't be worth his contract but he might be good enough for you to at least forget about it.

    I don't think Wiggins is as good as Rudy Gay was. Any don't play defense for sure. You'll have to show me where Wiggins had a moment like oh it's Rudy Gay no no no, not this f-ing guy. Or where Wiggins shoots over the top of LeBron James for game winner. Listen I'm not even sure I want Kawhi Leonard on this team, over what we could get in this draft. The only way I'd be interested in Kawhi Leonard is if he signed an extension with the Grizzlies and if the Spurs took Chandler Parsons off our hands. Then I might be interested.
