    Memphis Grizzlies win total: 41.5

    I'll follow the 48.
  2. Yeah, buddy. And I'm glad you chose a great movie. 😀
  3. It does feel like a win - win. Jaren is gonna grab his spot at the top this year.
  4. Come on, man. Every one loves you. We have respect and appreciation for your time and work. Many thanks. (And Sub, snarky? Woah. Can a mod get demerits?)

    Opinions should not become common knowledge. My sources tell me that sources, who are inside enough to know, would never dis the pick by saying "we really wanted another guy." Why would they do that? It's damaging. It doesn't make sense to me, especially when that player was supposed to help Ja spend more minutes playing off the ball. What? Again, it makes no sense to me. This season Ja has to prove he can shoot, especially the floater and mid-range. Last night he reverted back to bull rush and the game ended like many of them last season.

    I don't want Ziaire, or Ja, trying to overpower near the rim. Young ones often get fouled with no call. How many times last season did Ja get hit in the head or knocked to the ground with no call. It appears that Ja has been working on his floater so we won't see him knocked around as much. This is the kind of lesson Ziaire needs to learn. He's not gonna overpower most NBA players. He's got to learn to go around, to go over, to get there first and to trick em. There's room in the league for finesse. Some of us believe he can do it but we have said from the beginning, "he has to hit shots." 2 of 3 from 3 last night sounds like an improvement.

    I don't remember your messages, but in general, first it was "he looks good but his stats stink," now his stats are getting better but he looks like he "isn't reliable at anything." Time will tell.

    I disagree with "send him to the G League at the start to build up his confidence." Ah, no. If he needs a lot of shots in games I can see it. Imo, if he can get his shot to start moving positive, he needs work against the best players. In the hilights of tonights game his shot is blocked twice, in the G League, probably not. Kid gotta learn.
  10. Maybe if smit-tay used a wireless keyboard with a trackpad it wouldn't mess with the mojo. Cheap = the $20 k400. The Logitech Unifying receiver allows connection of multiple devices. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Logitech-Wireless-Touch-Keyboard-K400-with-Built-In-Multi-Touch-Touchpad-Black/17253322 The updated k400 plus is $5 more. It slices, it dices, it makes thousands and thousands of Julienne fries.
  11. We agree on Ziaire and Santi. I believe someday there will be an interesting story told about how the Griz got him.

    I plead quilty on explaining away the earlier shooting %. Because I believe he looks good in preseason in most other aspects of the game and the mechanics of his shot are also good that his accuracy will follow soon.

    The bottom line is important but I can't ignore the correct help positioning on defense, the steals and the assists. These are not usual for teenage rookies. He took the shots that he should have taken. You don't agree, but I think they will fall soon.
