    Tyreke Kicked out of League for Violating Drug Policy

    Kicked out of the league means a substance drug
  2. Again, I don't think you guys watched Ja at all. In his freshman year he played largely off the ball where he looked like a fine prospect. The biggest reason that he made the jump this year is because he was the primary ball handler by far. This man is better with the ball in his hand, there is no doubt. What are your goals next year? If it's to win, this team doesn't have the talent to be an 8th seed in reality. But a Ja/Conley backcourt gets slaughtered defensively. Also, the team then severely lacks spacing on the floor. This is not a winning formula. Is your goal to develop your young talent the best way possible? Then he's already proven in college that he needs the ball in his hands to show his most special talents. Do you guys not agree that looking back, starting jamychal over JJJ was absolutely stupid? Why would you want to repeat that again? I like to keep things simple, I know people love Conley but sometimes you have to upgrade your 2000 Toyota Corolla. Does a sub 35 win team have any need for a $30 million player that plays the same position as your top prospect? Taking a top 5 pick and bringing him off the bench is something stupid organizations do or title contenders do. I know for a fact we don't have the 2nd. I hope that we aren't the first.
  3. Bringing Morant off the bench to make a push for 8th would be terrible. The team has been trash for two years in a row, develop your potential superstar properly.

    Even I know you have to draft Ja

    Barrett isn't a safer pick than Ja at all. How many elite skills would you say that Barrett currently has? I would say zero. Ja already has one elite skill with his passing/vision, something that's ridiculously rare in the NBA. And this isn't a skill that's dependent on being bigger/stronger/faster than other people. His athleticism is also another arguable elite skill. Let's not overthink this fellas, people trying to argue something different just to be different. How many times do prospects with above average/elite athleticism and an absurd work ethic bust? How many times do those guys not improve exponentially? Sometimes it is literally that simple.
  5. Lakers are not going to trade their assets for Conley, they're gonna get a star with what they offer. The best fits for a Conley trade are teams trying to jump into the playoff push and or improve slightly, especially if Durant leaves. I still think Utah, Indiana, Orlando, Detroit, OKC, Minnesota and maybe Phoenix are the types of teams I could see being interested in Conley without looking at all into what types of packages they could offer.
  6. Ja isn't a knockdown shooter like some Curry/Klay tho, yet. Toronto uses all of their bigs to space the floor. Portland like GSW, has a deadly shooting backcourt. Brook is a pure spacer now. Our best player moving forward isn't going to be Val so I don't think Philly/Denver are good comparisons. This roster needs to be built around Ja and JJJ, whether Val is a good fit for both of them is still up for discussion imo. But I agree with one of the above points, we can find out next year if Val picks up his option but if not you let him go. We have real all-star talent now potentially, do not hinder their development for a guy who will never be an all-star. I also think some of our other guys like a Kyle Anderson aren't that good of a fit next to Ja.

    Where Should Conley Be Traded?

    you guys are still looking at it wrong. Letting Ja grow with unlimited rope in his first year is much more important than getting an extra late 1st rounder for Conley. We also don't need to starve ourselves for doo doo young talent like Malik Monk for example in the Gasol trade, we have two actual potential all-star level guys now. If Ja is the pick, Conley needs to be gone at starting camp.

    Ja/Jaren will win one game in the WCF, write it down

    2019 NBA DRAFT

    Imagine drafting Kevin Durant in 2008 and then saying, "they ain't gonna get us to the playoffs next year bro." You guys sound like clowns. We have two all-stars for probably the next 5 years at least, how you gonna be mad?

    2019 NBA DRAFT

    you hyped up conley for stat padding for a crap team tho. What's new/what's next is what matters. Conley had his time, but now it's Ja and Jaren's and I expect it to be good.

    2019 NBA DRAFT

    no point in trying to get cute, just take the 2nd best player in this draft with all-star potential and go home a happy man. Ja is going to be a star and keeping him here for his career starts on that draft day where we make it obvious that he is the choice and the franchise for the next x years. Also Smith is doo doo compared to Morant.

    2019 NBA DRAFT

    Why are people calling Ja a small pg? Do you guys not remember how midget Conley was at 19? Ja is 6'3 and 175 right now, in his prime he'll get up to that 190-200 lb range with above average athleticism.

    what do those guys have to do with a top 15 player and an all-star big man?

    2019 NBA DRAFT

    Lol, who cares bro. The point of the lottery is to get a franchise guy. We potentially have a top 15 player at point guard and an all star big man. The next 5 years is about building the roster around them, this core is legit

    Just imagine here people, an all-star that plays in Memphis who could have a signature shoe with Adidas/Nike. Just think about the kind of brand you could built, kids growing up in Memphis buying the Ja 3's or whatever.
