    I think i found out when Morant hurt his knee...

    He has more tats than Garland. He must be better.
  2. I'm not certain I agree with the Avery Bradley hate. He's only 28 years old - certainly not over the hill. In his short stint with Memphis last season... 16 points and 4 assists per gm. 92% FTs. 38% from three. Who are we going to realistically get that is better for that 2-spot/combo guard role?

    Ja Morant hurt?

    ut vols SEC records the last dozen or so years... 3-5 4-4 3-5 1-7 1-7 2-9 3-5 5-3 4-4 0-8 2-6 ------- 28 - 57 I agree with that not being mediocre. And they've gone how many seasons in that time without a single player drafted? The Titans have one playoff win since 2003 for whatever that's worth. This is my favorite question for Titans fans this time of the year: "so, are you going to use your first pick in fantasy football this year on Mariota?" (still yet to find one who will do it or even draft him as their #1 qb) It's cool that you know who Mularkey is. Most people who show up at a Titans game are only going because somebody at the office is having a tailgate party. Most of them can't name a Titans coach since Jeff Fisher.

    Ja Morant hurt?

    Where will Mariota sign after the season is over? He averaged less than a TD a game last season, so his value right now is not so high. Also who will they hire to replace Vrabel after they miss the playoffs again. And just wondering... who has fired more coaches in the last 10 years, the Tennessee Titans or the Tennessee Vols?

    Is Ja Morant Worthy of a #2 pick?

    Garland outscored Porter at USC head to head. He also scored 33 vs Liberty who went a couple of rounds in the big dance including a win over a 5 seed.
  6. This huge blind leap of faith people are putting behind a now injured Ja is concerning. I hope he's an all-star if we use a #2 pick on him but you hear thing about how he's not the best guard in the draft.

    Garland unathletic? Maybe you know more about it than ESPN but I'll go with them this time... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4F9eyCYjfQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Hk6BwXBFcE

    Is Ja Morant Worthy of a #2 pick?

    Garland should not be ruled out. I was there when he hurt his meniscus. He actually stayed in the game until the next dead ball. When he limped off to the locker room under his own power, he didn't seem to be in severe pain. Some reports say he is the best guard in this draft. He can make 3's from unlimited distance. The Ja story makes for more of an entertaining human interest story... 2 star rated in h.s. and overlooked by the big name schools, etc.etc. but that "chip on the shoulder" thing can only go so far in a long 82 game NBA season.

    ZBo 2.0

    Boogie Cuz looked 2 steps slow last night. I vote for JV with Noah as a backup. Before last night I may have been for a Boogie Cuz pickup but not now.

    2019 NBA DRAFT

    Meh...

    2019 NBA DRAFT

    I'm no fan of anything "orange" but Schofield will be an interesting 2nd rounder. The guy can shoot 3's from any distance. And nobody is going to kick sand in his face... even as a rookie. He will be a bargain for somebody.

    NBA Combine Prospect Interviews

    As a fellow Bobcat alum, I hope you are as psyched about the Jeff Boals hire as most are. In a short time, he has already recruited more good players than Saul Phillips did in five years.

    OT: Faragi Phillips

    Since there is no forum for college or local h.s. ball, I will ask here. Did Penny want him as an assistant coach at Memphis but couldn't add him because of something to do with coaching Lomax in AAU ball at some point? Is he qualified to be a D-1 assistant? What is his coaching history like?

    That party haven college she went to in Athens OH has always been full of living dolls.

    Predict #2 Pick

    The box score vs WVU shows Morant as a starter and scored 14 points in 36 minutes.

    Predict #2 Pick

    23ppg Not bad. Not as impressive as RJ, but still good.

    Predict #2 Pick

    Barrett vs Kentucky with Zion healthy: 33 points Morant vs Morehead State: 11 points but did have 10 rebounds (and had 16 points the other gm vs Morehead) Morehead's record: 13-20 and Kentucky's record: 30-7

    Predict #2 Pick

    You guess? He played against ranked teams 15 times. He went for over 30 three times against highly ranked teams. Ja played 3 games against ranked teams. But I think he could have averaged 12ppg in the ACC with 5 assists per game.
  20. JV is clearly a 5. JJJ is a stretch 4 or at least for now is. They should both be here and be starters. Can it really be just that simple? Actually, yes.
  21. Will it be too soon to start a "FIRE VOGEL" thread or do the posters need to wait until the season starts?
  22. With all the yammering about getting younger and faster... Z-Bo? This idea can't be taken seriously. Tyler Zeller would even be a more legit option. Bottom line: keeping JV is a must
  23. Seriously? With all the talk about the team needing to get younger and faster? Really? Maybe if there's an "Old Timers" game during All-Star weekend he could play in it. We all love Z-Bo, but... the future is now and he's not it.

    Gasol killing it with Raptors

    Let me see if get this correct. Gasol had 5 points in 35 minutes tonight = good job as a (cough-cough) "glue guy" JV follows his 27/13 dbl-dbl with a 34/20 dbl-dbl. = a bum, can't keep the guy, need to start Rabb at center.
  25. Isn't this the last year of "moneyball" as the Parsons era (error) concludes and falls off the books?
