    Memphis Grizzlies and NBA Roster Moves

    Ja is averaging 62 games played per season and Jaren averages 51 games played per season so far. I just don't see the appeal for adding guys like Lavine and Anunoby who are also injury concerns that are basically guaranteed to miss 20 games a year themselves. Add in another guy like Clarke who is supposedly part of the core and misses 20 games a year with his back problems. We need that 2nd/3rd option to be a rock or we run the risk of becoming a Lakers like team with AD/Bron alternating missing games throughout the year
  2. I am not talking about last night, I'm talking about the future. ZW/Jaren this year averaged 11 rebounds per 36 minutes. If that is our 3/4 combo of the future, either one is going to have to get significantly better or the rest of the roster is going to need to be built up to paper over that weakness (like Ja's defensive issues). Or the entire team will just have to be completely better in the other areas where that flaw doesn't matter which is tough.

    You don't like a career 15 and 6 guy that can shoot average from 3, guard 3/4s and has already proven to be a valuable role player on a title winning team? Also plays around 70 games a year which is good when the rest of the core is a little fragile

    trade the 1st rounders for Kyle Kuzma if possible
  5. I still argue that the rebounding is a big problem he needs to work on, last night was the problem at its worst. Think it's an underrated weakness for Ziaire Williams too, the 3.5 rebounds per 36 is not good enough if Jaren is also not going to rebound. One of them is going to have to pick it up if they're going to be sharing so many minutes together.
  6. Is that hamstring problem from Dillon real?
  7. Brooks shoulda passed that one off to Williams. Terrible drive into traffic
  8. Bane looks spry tonight and he's getting open looks for himself and others. Really woulda made a difference in the series, too bad

    Biggest thing I'm noticing is I'm glad we got rid of Allen. And yeah, I don't think Bane is untouchable either. He definitely deserves the opportunity to come back and see if he takes another development jump but nothing wrong with taking some calls or offering him up for certain guys

    Dillon Brooks Has to Go

    Man the Brooks step back 3 brick and then immediately running into Curry for no reason was brutal by him. Just rewatched the video
  11. This series is like when OKC lost to Dallas in 2011, a necessary learning experience for the next level. We've learned about guys who aren't cut out for the playoffs like Melton, learned key experience in games and found out that Brooks has to go. Hurts now but they'll be better for it in the future
  12. This was Dillon Brooks in the bubble bad
  13. Jaren was hiding in the corner too tho on most of the possessions and his final 3 was just as braindead as most of Brooks' chucks. He played great tho and it's not his fault. Tyus had no composure, couldn't settle any offensive possessions down and just gave up the rock quickly. He's the one guy that I can say for sure looked scared
  14. Jenkins not challenging the Wiggins charge(obviously wrong) and not challenging the Curry flop(50/50 call) we're bad. He eats his challenge way too much
