  1. Should we send Jaren down to the G-League for a 5-7 game stint to work on his fouling? I mean, it's ridiculous. He's averaging almost 5 fouls a game in 4 game this year. This is really disappointing. He's the son of an NBA player and had a full off-season to work on this. He had trouble in college as well. The loss of his presence on the floor really hurts the Grizz. Maybe sending him to the G-League will show him to take this seriously. The guy has talent but he doesn't always seem to be aware of what's going on on the court and finds himself in bad situations picking up ticky tack fouls.

    How About The Football Tigers

    Oh well. Sounds like he's the new coach at FSU. At least they won an AAC championship and will go to the Cotton Bowl. Have no clue who they should go after as far a sa new coach but I'll through these names out based on what I have seen on social media: Hugh Freeze- He would be my top choice. i don't care about any off of the field stuff as long as it wasn't illegal. He did some stuff that could be considered immoral but that's between him, his wife an dhis higher power imo. The guy can coach and has ties to Memphis Satterfield- I guess he's a coordinator on Norvell's staff. Don't know enough about him. Barry Odom- Apparently there are reports that he is the leading candidate and the boosters want him badly. IDK, first off, he spurned them 4 years ago and left them in a lurch while he went back to Mizzou. I don't blame him for going back to his alma mater, it was just the timing. It worked out well for Memphis as they got Norvell. Secondly, he's a defense first guy and would need an OC who runs a high powered offense. I mean, if he's teh guy fine. He went .500 in 4 years in the SEC with limited talent maybe he can sustain the success at Memphis.

    How About The Football Tigers

    i didn't go there so I never really followed the FB team and unlike the basketball team, they have a long history of being outright horrible but I think they are in their best 4 year stretch in school history. They are ranked #21 in the Coaches poll and #22 in the AP poll. Good times and fun team to watch. Unfortunately the big rumor is that Norvell is the lead target for Florida as head coach and Ferguson is a senior. I hope they win out and make a splash. They've hired two good coaches in a row so who knows, the third time may be a charmer where they can hire a keeper.

    Take that for data

    At least on the college level. Jimmy Sexton represents a ton of SEC coaches as well as Mike Norvell the Memphis coach. I would assume pro coaches have some type of agent or lawyer representing them in negotiations.

    All of that may be true. I was not a fan of his with the Grizz but not sure if he got a fair shake either. Taking the Knicks job is an indicator of clinical insanity. Their entire organization from the team owners to front office down to the janitors are a trainwreck. No one could succeed there as long as Dolan owns the team and is calling shots. Fizz is just a guy as a coach. He won't develop young talent or get the most out of bad talent, he want optimize good talent either, he's just there to me, a placeholder, a Jason Garrett type.

    I'm sure Chip will move this but imo, the guy has taken 2 bad jobs where he couldn't really win. I would fire his agent if I were him. Im not sure if he can coach or not and wasn't impressed with him here but he's taken bad jobs.

    Grizz Acquire Iguodala, 1st Round Pick from GS

    Everytime I see this thread pop up, I get happy because I think we have traded this bum. I can't wait for 12/15 to get here. I think his chances to be traded will increase a lot after then. I hope he's not on the team by the end of this month, well, I hope his contract is not with the Grizz by the end if the month. He's never been with the team.

    What Can Be Done to Keep JJJ on the floor? What Options Do We Have?

    Once again, i have no idea what you're talking about. I am just pointing out that JJJ scoring 30 ppg is not the norm, you made the comment "not if he i s scoring regularly in games like he did yesterday." i am just pointing out that he does not regularly score like that. ANything else you are adding is pure conjecture and you are reading between lines that are not there. Thanks. I'm moving on. I made a mistake. it was incorrect but yes, he needs to go to the line more

    How many 30 point games has Jaren had in his career?

    Should we Trade JV????

    JV started over 90% of his games with TOR. If you're talking about in his last year with TOR, for some reason I was thinking he had been hurt for a bit that season. He's averaging 14 and 10 for us with a 20 PER. He's doing just fine as a starting C for us. Is he the perfect fit, maybe, maybe not, who knows? Let's at least wait until the mid-point of the season. He's a productive player.

    LOL, stop being so sensitive. I wasn't attacking you. You said if Jaren regularly scores like that, i just pointed out that this was not his regular scoring pattern. Nothing more nothing less. Have no idea how you jumped to any other conclusion.

    What Can Be Done to Keep JJJ on the floor? What Options Do We Have?

    How many times has Jaren scored over 30 points in a game in his career? Like 2 or 3? That was more of a scoring outburst than the norm. It's hard for him to score if he's in foul trouble. He also went or the FT line 19 times which is not the norm for him. He just needs to stay on the floor.

    How About The Football Tigers

    Well, over two years later and the Tigers are still on fire and Norvell is still the coach. One more win over Cincy in the AAC championship and they go to the Cotton Bowl which would be YUUUGGE for a program like Memphis. With that being said, the rumors are even stronger Norvell may jump. The only job I see him taking is FSU. He may fail and get fired in a couple of years but boy oh boy if he could turn them around and be there for 10 years, he's got it made. As far as the SEC jobs go, Mizzou would be the only one to consider if he would consider them. He would have a path to the SEC championship in the SEC East. UGa and UF are generally the front runners but they always seem to slip up. If he wants to be in the SEC, that may be the best option. The West is a no go. I don't see any reason for him to even consider Arkansas despite his ties to the area. There's no way he's getting past Bama and LSU in the foreseeable future and he would be lucky to outdo Auburn and TAMU. His high mark may be fighting for 3rd or 4th place in the best years. As far as Ole Miss, that may be the biggest dumpster fire of a P5 job that there is. I would lose respect for Norvell if he went there. That job is just setting people up to fail. I would rather take a chance at failing at FSU. Failing at Ole Miss will get you nothing. They have no traditional power history. It's just there and happened to be a longtime SEC member.

    It's not encouraging that he just keeps committing blatantly obvious fouls. I mean, a lot of times, you can't even question it but for the others, I think he has been labeled as foul prone and the refs are quick to blow the whistle. Sadly, he's brought that on himself. We have a long way to go but he's not showing any improvement. He actually seems to regress sometimes because you can tell how frustrated he is but he has no one to blame but himself

    Ja Morant Week to Week

    He should have never played after the injury. Back spasms are a female dog. He clearly hasn't been right since the injury. My personal opinion is they should have rested him for a couple of weeks before letting him go back out there.
  16. Nice piece on TA including the time he got knocked the fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuhhh out!

    Nah we couldn‚Äôt use this kid.. ūüôĄ

    Ok, thanks for the clarification. I missed that,
  18. Ole Dirty Klondike

    Nah we couldn‚Äôt use this kid.. ūüôĄ

    I don't understand the title. Who has been saying we can't use this kid? The guy is clearly a talent. With that being said, his team lost 2 out of the 3 games in their tourney, only beating Chaminade and he's only shooting 40% from the field so far this season. In that game before MSU where he scored 37 points, he had 6 points in 28 minutes against Dayton. He's a freshman and freshmen will have ups and downs so that's understandable. He should be more consistent as the season goes on. I think the real question is, is he just a talented player throwing up points on a mediocre team or is he a talented player that can help you actually win? There's a difference.

    Sheesh, you crazy Canadians always gotta be different. Why can't you celebrate Thanksgiving on today like the rest of the normal free civilized world (I'm joking) What's a fake Black Friday? 2 cents off?

    Memphis Grizzlies vs Utah Jazz- 11/29/19

    I have an extra ticket for sell. If anyone is interested, please send me a message and I'll send you the details.
  22. Ole Dirty Klondike


    I still think he will be called up once Crowder, Hill and/or Iggy has been traded.(or he may be traded with them). Players signed this past offseason can be traded starting in December. I suspect trade offers will increase for our players in December. It never sounded like the trade was about acquiring him. They wanted Melton and the draft picks more than Jackson.They didn't pick up his option but if we go into Jan, I'd say what the heck, let him play.

    Should We Re-SIgn D Brooks?

    D Brooks is showing some nice improvement this year, playing under control and is positively contributing to the team. His contract is up at the end of this year. He's only making $1.6 mil this year. What are people's thoughts on DB's future with the Grizz? While making some nice contributions, his PER is still below average. I'm just wondering if we use the MLE dollar amount as the baseline and assume it will be around $9.5 million per season, what should we do with Dillon and how should we use him going forward.
