    Crowder had 16 & 6 in the Miami upset win?

    We'll just ave to agree to disagree. Crowder came in to provide leadership on a short term basis for a team that was rebuilding and was expected to be at the bottom on the Western Conference. If you don't agree with that, I'm not really sure what to say. Not everyone can be a 40% 3 pt shooter. If he avg 2 ppg on 15% shooting for 40 mpg, yes, I would say he was awful. He provided many intangibles and was a major part of our exceeding expectations but the reality is, we were only in this position because other teams had injuries. Barring injury, all 8 teams ahead of us will be ahead of us next, GS will definitely be ahead of us and there's a chance NOLA will as well. This year was a lucky year for us but we are 2 years away from competing.

    You clearly don't understand and I'm not going back and forth with you. Simple and plain.

    I said his profile, not in his posts. Learn how to read and comprehend before saying that I posted a blatant lie.

    Look, I'm going to say 2 things about this: Everything that you are saying is explained by the fact that Jae is playing with better players in MIA and he gets more of an opportunity to do what he does. He couldn't do that here because we needed more out of his role. I don't know any other way to say that The fact that you admit that he was the second best rebounder but then try to give him a back handed compliment by saying he was only that because JJJ can't rebound, explains exactly what I am saying. He had to do more here. I don't care about how many 3's he took or that his usage rate is the same. I'm talking about the fact that we are talent deficient and the Heat are not. If we had 2 legit starting swingmen and Jae and Dillon came off of the bench, no one would care about their numbers. They were thrust into the starting lineup not because of their talent but due to the lack of overall talent on the Grizz. It's like you're trying to breakdown their stats to make a point. The bigger point is this was a bad team without much talent that was expected to go nowhere and then surprised the league. There's no use in breaking down stats because it's a talent deficient team and on those types of teams, you rely on people who aren't talented enough to do extra things, simple and plain. It's always been that way. I'm not worried about Jae's 3 pt shooting because we weren't going anywhere anyway and at most, he would only be here for 1 year. We're not talking about KD's impact on GS here you know. He did what he was supposed to do and I was happy he came here. It's not just his stats, it's his leadership, it's his toughness, it's his motivating other players but also, when Jae got traded here, the first thing he did on Twitter was switch his Twitter photo to a Grizz jersey and started talking about how happy he was to be in Memphis and his family ain't that far away.........Winslow was traded to the Grizz on Feb 6th and ain't once mentioned us or the city in his profile.

    Crowder had 16 & 6 in the Miami upset win?

    I don't know about flat out awful. He didn't shoot a great % but was second on the team in rebounding here, second in steals and provided a lot in the way of leadership. He was second only to Dillon in FT% when you look at the main rotation players. He was always a transition guy, a bridge guy to help get us to the other side. He was not long term. He's clearly not a go to scorer or leading scorer, he's been a role player all of his career. He brought intangibles. We asked him to do more than he normally does and he accepted the role. Same thing with Dillon. I view him and Dillon the same. They are being asked to do something that is not their natural game. His % are higher in MIA because he's on a team with better players so teams don't focus on him.

    Grizzles Trade Targets

    Grizzles Trade Targets

    I would go after Robert Covington. Good replacement for Winslow. I mean, not that he would be replacing Winslow, more liek replacing Crowder and SloMo I guess.

    Zach Levine & #4 pick for Justise & JJJ?

    I'm still trying to understand why the Bulls would give up the best player in this trade (Lavine avg 25 and 5) AND a #4 pick which could conceivably turn out to be the best or second best player in this trade scenario for JJJ and a broken down Winslow. So they will just hand us the two best players in this trade to take back JJJ and a broken down Winslow, when they have Carter, Jr., Markkannen, and 2 guys in Porter and who play the 3/4, Where do JJJ and WInslow fit on their team? And wouldn't they now need a starting SG? I see why the Grizz would do this but can't for the life of me, understand why CHI would make a trade for yet another 3/4 guy when they have 2 on the roster already, add JJJ where they already have competent starters at the 4 and 5 spots and then give up a SG avg 25 ppg to have no one at the SG spot AND they lose their #4 pick which could potentially replace Lavine I don't get it from CHI side at all.

    Interesting Topic about JJJ

    Oh, I wasn't saying there was someone else that was a better player or that I liked better. If I remember correctly, I wanted us to trade out. Which we kind of sort of did in a roundabout way a few months later. If anything, I was thinking maybe Wagner but his health took him down. Obviously Amare, but he was a high schooler and a big, but if we took Gooden why not take a chance on Amare? I wasn't excited about that draft but it worked itself out. Drew just couldn't adjust to do what needed to be done.

    I saw that and thought that was pretty stupid. Some people may think it's funny or whatever but this guy is taking his time out to help these students in some way and they pull this bs. I wouldda told the school and the students to go kick rocks. I ain't helping with nothing. Yes, I'm petty like that.

    Your 2020 offseason moves predictions. Free agents & deals

    I don't really expect Kyle to be a shooter so 35% on 2.8 attempts is fine with me. If he did that all season, 2.8 is about middle of the pack for the league, around Solomon Hill's attempts and more than Ja's. Courtney Lee averaged 2.8 attempts for his career but people thought he was a shooter. I always said he was a selective shooter and took shots he thought had a good chance of going in and minimized bad shots. I guess my expectations for Kyle are kind of low so anything he does that's even close to average is all gravy to me. I have no expectations of him being a shooter so I guess these numbers have never even crossed my mind in relation to Kyle.

    I think Brogdon would complement Ja perfectly but I don't see how that could happen. I guess they could blow things up but seems to me Oladipo would be the first to go if that happened.

    You don't think shooting basically 35% is a decent 3 point shooter? What % is a decent 3 pt %?

    Interesting Topic about JJJ

    Doncic and MIddleton are bigs? I said how many have 2 big men as in PF and C starting alongside each other. It makes sense when it's a G or SF because there is spacing but when yo have 2 big men, it's hard to have 2 bigs starting together and rebounding at a high rate. They get in each other's way. That's not to say JJJ shouldn't rebound better, he should be at at least 8 boards per game imo.

    The NEW official 2020 Draft Thread

    When did I say he wasn't good enough? I said that I question whether he is a winner or if he just puts up stats on bad teams. I said that he puts up nice stats and highlights but really doesn't win. Also, when did I say he's too good? I said in the NBA circles he is looked at as a better player than JJJ or Winslow, that's not saying he's too good. That's saying he's looked at as a better player than either JJJ or Winslow. In what alternate universe would a team give up a guy who is avg 25 ppg and 5 rpg ALONG WITH a top 4 lottery pick for 2 guys who haven't proven anything? Of course you can ask, you'll get laughed out of Chicagoland but go ahead and ask.

    Interesting Topic about JJJ

    I've played devil's advocates plenty of times but I just don't see the thinking behind this. I mean, maybe if people can give me numerous examples of productive #4 picks being traded away after 2 years and bringing back upgrades, I guess I'll listen. Until then, I think the guy who wrote that article was just trying to be provocative and get people to talking. That's fine but if we do that, we may as well discuss trading Ja as well right? What makes him so special? He had injury issues? He didn't lead us to the playoffs. He didn't avg 20 ppg, he was no All-Star. He can't hit open jumpers. Why not trade him as well? Also, you probably have an overall higher opinion of JJJ than I do. As I mentioned, I didn't want him on draft night, begrudgingly accepted the selection and have criticized his rebounding, fouling and can he be a #2 option. It's not that I think he's some great player who is untouchable, I just don't see any realistic trades out there that would benefit us. It would be trading just to make a trade, kind of like we did with trading for Winslow and as far as I'm concerned, we got ripped a new one in that trade. Yes, we definitely need those types of players, not sure if JJJ and Winslow would net us those types of players, but JV avg 11 rpg and was #6 in the league. How many teams have 2 big men avg over 8 or 9 rpg starting together alongside each other?
