    Grizzlies/NBA trade deadline 2021 and beyond

    In the position we’re in now we should consolidate assets. We run the risk of being a worst Boston as currently constructed. Boston make shrewd moves and got a haul for Pierce and KG, Drafted 2 young Stars (our Ja/Jaren equivalent) then proceeded to not consolidate the rest of those assets into anything. They made safe moves, signing Gordon Hayward (Not his fault but he was basically their version of Chandler Parsons), trading Terry Rosier for Kyrie (Kyrie being a primary scorer didn’t fit with Tatum & Brown), then refused to push chips in the middle of the Table for AD or Harden. They could be sitting with Kyrie, AD and Harden competing for Championships for the next 4 years, instead they are about to possibly miss the playoffs no longer ahead of schedule with no more assets. This off-season is pivotal for the Grizzlies and their team building efforts. They need to consolidate assets and bring in a 3rd Star, then add veteran depth to this roster around Ja, Jaren and JV. You telling me Chicago wouldn’t have to seriously consider Kyle, BC & Melton + 3 1sts and 2 2nds for Lavine? Then float Everyone not Ja, Dillon, Jaren or JV to build a legit veteran team with shooting around that 5 and what’s left. We’d still have all our future 1sts so we aren’t mortgaging the future and would still have flexibility to go all in later. But we can’t get Lavine... ok What about Jamal Murray? Denver is winning at a high level without him adding high level depth might be on their mind. Lonzo Ball can be had in free agency, 40% 3 pt shooter who is a very good defender and can run backup PG as well. This isn’t the off-season for the Grizzlies to sit on their hands. Regardless of how the end of this season turns out.

    Bogus question. Dillon plays well, no effect on the team. Ja plays well we win most of those games because the rest of the team feeds off of him.

    You luck into those dudes, you can’t allow that to be your plan. Klay, Giannis and Kawhi were lottery picks, if you want to say we can get that level of dude at 13 or 14 in this deep draft cool. But after the lottery it’s way less likely to get that level of player. Also, can we stop putting Draymond on that type of list? Dude literally would not be as good on any team that didn’t have Steph and Klay.

    Both of the teams I mentioned still took lumps in the playoffs, just after their core of stars was set. We don’t have a core of stars, we have one dude we know can be a star. This isn’t the time to be concerned with winning at a high level.

    Learning to win high intensity games is overrated when you don’t have the core you’ll try to win big with. OKC didn’t care about high intensity games until they had KD, Westbrook and Harden. GS didn’t care about high intensity games until they had Steph, Klay and Draymond. We need Jaren to prove he’s a top 3 player on a winning team, Ja to get a jumper and our 3rd star before we start worrying about experience in high intensity games.

    Bobby Marks also got fired. And every team the Lakers played last year was better than us, proven by the fact that they all beat us in the bubble. Fact of the matter is, if u put this roster up next to other rosters in the playoffs it doesn’t stack up. If you choose to look at it through Grizz colored glasses then cool. But I choose to look at it objectively.

    What would you point to that would suggest we wouldn’t? When we’ve played games that matter we lose. Name one that we’ve managed to win? If you can tell me the talent on this team is good enough to compete at the highest level I’ll stand corrected but I don’t think you actually believe that.

    Don’t know that we are going to lose, but I know I’d doesn’t matter because we’ll get swept in the 1st round. I don’t particularly want to see that. And think we would’ve been better off in the long term positioning ourselves for a good draft pick instead.

    Didn’t say lose on purpose. Nor did I say lose to get to 14. I said it was a mistake to try and compete at the level the FO did this season, the middle sucks. Either push for the middle of the playoffs like ATL and Dallas have done or lose enough to get an impact player. Kyle should’ve been shipped off at the deadline, Tyus should’ve been shipped off at the deadline. We should think about packaging any of our young Guys for impact players. But being where we are is counter productive. I don’t care nothing about having meaningful games at the end of a season if we lose them all.

    What them dudes do today? Playoff basketball a different animal and they not at a high enough level. In the words of TA “I don’t believe you, you need more people.”

    Time to cash these future firsts for a talent upgrade. We can’t compete when real playoff team turn it on, and late firsts aren’t going to get us there. It’s also about that time we went heavy on veterans around Ja, Jaren, JV and Dillon. I think it’s pretty clear they are our new core 4, we gotta put real dudes around them not dudes with potential. Next year needs to be the year we make real strides or we’ll be stuck in the 8th in the west range.
  12. We don’t have one of those dudes
  13. I was happier when I didn’t think we could win. Come on Ja!!!!!
