    AD is a Faker

    This is just [find a better word] nuts. Ainge never had Kawhi to lose. After his last drama filled season in S.A. and having only 1 year guaranteed on his contract, he was a big [find a better word] risk. Boston's talent hadn't peaked yet, at least hadn't appeared to at that time, but Toronto's talent had. Anyway, who [find a better word] cares about Boston? not edited by 10SC-2-TOKYO
  2. One things for sure, we gained a bunch of new posters! šŸ˜„
  3. OKC pays their bigs. Don't you remember their Ibaka deal?
  4. Washed up bigs get 10 - 16 mil JV is a quality big entering his prime.
  5. The thing is, why shouldn't he expect that? When's the last time a Grizzlies starting player took a pay cut as he entered his NBA prime? https://www.basketball-reference.com/contracts/players.html Bigs still get paid.
  6. Really? It's less than Chandler Parsons will be paid this coming season. šŸ˜„šŸ˜²šŸ˜¢ 3 years from now it won't seem as bad.
  7. Looking at it from JV's perspective, why would you do that? You have a guy with 17.6 mil on the table and entering his NBA prime. He had a 4 year deal that increased 1.1 mil every season, topping off at 17.6. He has to be figuring 17.6, 18.8, and 19.9 minimum. That's 56.3 mil for 3 years. 13/15/17 total = 17.6/13.7/13.7 total. Would you do that? Heck no, take the 17.6 then in another year someone else is almost guaranteed to give you more than two years at 13.7 per. I would bet he will get something like 15/20/25 for 3 years. Take a cut now for more later.

    Am i the only one that really isn't happy for Marc...

    My great-grandfather raised and then sold a horse that won a big race in Saratoga. Suddenly a lot of people wanted to buy his horses. Conley is on the trading block. I believe that other F.O.'s are now thinking a little harder about trading for him, just because of the press about Marc. If you can't be happy for a former Grizzlies player winning a ring, at least be happy that by doing so, he has helped the franchise by inflating Conley's value, even if it's just a little bit. Personally, I can't understand any reason to not be happy for him.
  9. Logic says that he didn't just turn down 17 mil to accept less. He is proven and still young. If he takes less this season, it will jump considerably for the next two or more seasons.
  10. Thank you for clearing that up for me.
  11. I read that the most JV can sign with the Grizzlies is for 2 years. What makes sense to me would be something like a 15 mil then 21 mil. so the Grizzlies have a little more flexibility this season.

    To me there is a big difference between rooting for the Memphis Grizzlies and the Pera Grizzlies. It kind of reminds me when the steroid stuff came out in baseball. The game didn't change, so some people didn't care. To me it mattered, mattered a lot. It was, and still is wrong IMO. I was a huge fan and now I could care less about the sport. I can't understand why people would want to root for a rich mans toy, because that's what the "team" is now turning into. Maybe it has always been this way and I was too stupid to see it, or acknowledge it. I don't like it. Are fans supposed to remain silent when they don't like something about their favorite team?
  13. Really hoping it is true that JV is going to re-sign with the Grizzlies. Without him JJJ will have it a lot harder. He will get roughed up more and defenses will collapse on him. It could take the wind out of his sails, especially combined with losing games.

    Totally with you on this one. There is some sneaky dishonesty going on. Wexler and Kleiman "running" the team? Who's kidding who? 90% of this board have more basketball knowledge than those two. As I asked above, who the heck is Zach Kleiman? No one has called this obvious charade out. Pera wants to call the shots, fine with me as long as he's man enough to own it, which he has yet to show. It is pure dishonesty and cowardice. People used to take great pride rooting for this "blue collar" team. There is nothing "blue collar" about being dishonest.

    You may be right, but I believe that he has been making many decisions through others. Staying behind the curtain so to speak. The whole Parsons fiasco kind of tells us this.
