  1. Pete Pranica calling Playoff Game

    Small markets unite!
  2. I'd say so, especially when you're getting a zoned in Marc. I attribute most of Gasol's struggles this year to our horrible season. Horford looks like he's taken a big step back from what I've seen. But again almost no chance it's enough to give us our pick back. Watched that segment on Vernon's show and Vernon was saying we should trade our top 5 pick for a good player to add to Mike and Marc. Wanted to trade a top 5 pick for McCollum but balked at trading Marc for him. Complete insanity.
  3. That would be the best case scenario but I have troubling seeing how it would work. Given their contract situation, it'd have to be a Horford/Gasol swap but if you're the Celtics, would upgrading from Horford to Gasol really be worth it if it meant giving us our pick back? We could add JaMychal and some second rounders but I don't think that moves the needle.
  4. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    Haha woops. Thanks for the update. I need to find some time to watch one of these Panathinaikos games in full.
  5. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    So I heard Doncic had another rough game today. Did anyone watch?
  6. Head Coach Thread

    Orlando just fired Frank Vogel, who Memphis tried to hire before settling on Fizdale a couple years ago. Could see Memphis trying to get him this time around, though I wouldn't be thrilled about it if he's hired. Still think they'll probably just lazily extend JB, unfortunately.
  7. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    Very intriguing but I'd rather try to get #16 and #17 from them and then try to move back into the bottom half of the top 10 for a Mikal Bridges or Wendell Carter.
  8. Ping pong time.

    Gut feeling is that we're going to be in the top three.

    Thank all of y'all for making this season bearable - Tankathon 2018 was a blast. Had no confidence that we'd pull this off but this was definitely a successful tank job. May 15 can't come fast enough.
  10. Pera to retain Grizz ownership

    “It is with intent that I referred to the ‘Memphis Grizzlies’ in the previous sentence, because I am committed to Memphis as an NBA market and as the home of the Grizzlies."
  11. Pera to retain Grizz ownership

    The more I heard about Kaplan the more I worried about Seattle. I don’t think Pera will ever move this team so I was hoping for this. Now about our GM...
  12. Detroit @ Memphis 04/08/18

    We're in Minnesota tomorrow night against a team fighting for their playoff lives and fully loaded with Jimmy Butler back. Top-5 is a virtual lock.
  13. Detroit @ Memphis 04/08/18

    Shout out to Atlanta for giving us a two game cushion.
  14. Inverted Standings Watch

    Hawks are doing in the twilight of their horrible season what I was almost positive we were going to do. Just beat the Celtics on the road.
  15. Inverted Standings Watch

    Suns' last game is at Dallas, which will be the tank game to end all tank games - a game where G-leaguers will chuck their way out of their basketball dreams from every spot on the court, where Rick Carlisle will be so exasperated he'll actually grow hair to pull out, where even forfeiture isn't out of the question. So we should lose out. Because Phoenix might just lose a little less than their opponent on April 10.
  16. Inverted Standings Watch

    Right now we can only win one of the three remaining games to ensure that we secure the #2 odds slot.
  17. Sacramento @ Memphis 04/06/18

    All but. Two games ahead of Atlanta at #3, with three games left, two of them being road games against OKC and Minnesota.
  18. Sacramento @ Memphis 04/06/18

    Top five son!
  19. Inverted Standings Watch

    Y’all... Atlanta just beat Washington on the road.
  20. Marshon signed to two year deal

    Great news. If we are a playoff contender he will be big for us if he keeps up this play next year. If we are terrible he'll be a great trade asset for Wallace to bungle.
  21. Inverted Standings Watch

    Have to believe they're trying to get Brooks on the three year minimum like they did with JaMychal.

    Magic win!
  23. Jay Wright

    How deflating is it going to be when the Grizzlies lazily extend J.B. Bickerstaff when there are elite level coaches like Wright out there waiting to be scooped up?
  24. Jay Wright

    Wallace being fired should be priority #1 but I don't think it's gonna happen if Pera keeps the team. Pera would be a fine owner if he'd let go of his devotion to Wallace and bring in an up-and-coming new-wave GM to run the show.
