    Everything will have to be watched 24/7.

    I disagree. The Grizzlies are giving him a chance, have the financial space to accept his contract demands next year and will be able to better judge what he's worth by giving him the chance.

    That's your opinion. Personally I agree on some issues being damaging to team unity and possibly being a bad influence. I also believe in second chances. Josh is a free agent this summer so I understand if the team feels he earned an opportunity. They can always cut him loose or send him back to the Hustle if he starts to exhibits bad attitudes.

    What is your issue with Josh other than taking Marco’ minutes?

    Then he needs to improve his play so they don't ask or be happy he's not getting cut since his contract is guaranteed. The team isn't punishing him. He's hurting the team and the team wants him to play better so he stops hurting the rest of the players.

    He'll have to get over it. If the team says he's going down to work on his game he better go. Of course if he started shooting like he did in those leagues that are 10 times better than the G League this wouldn't be an issue. If he was shooting like this in Europe he'd be sent down to the end of the bench or to a development team.

    I can't say what your perspective is but Marco's age and previous minor league experience is not the issue. He is a rookie in the NBA and he needs to work on his shot at the NBA distance and get comfortable with the speed of the NBA game. If the team wanted to punish him they could just sit him on the end of the bench. If they want to encourage him and keep him playing while working on adjusting to this league than the G league makes a lot of sense.

    They are both European. One is from Lithuania and the other is Serbian. I have admitted my error.

    It took Ja Morant...

    Everyone should have been aware of Ja's poor defensive principles by the time of the draft. These bad habits will take some time to work out but he is definitely working on getting better on defense.

    Sorry. I meant to type Serbia but I had a brain fart. You are correct in calling out that mistake. You are wrong to associate the G league with punishment however, especially for rookies.
  11. I think the ratings are pretty accurate personally. TNT and ESPN track these things pretty closely because it affects what they can charge for ads.

    How is the G League a punishment or destroying his confidence? Personally I believe shooting 38% from the floor and 28% from the arc should be confidence destroying enough. I realize Marco is from Yugoslavia and so is JV but he was brought over to hit open shots from the perimeter. He can do it because he's done it in Europe. He just needs to settle down and relax. He can get more playing time and work on his shot with the Hustle. It's not a punishment. It's an attempt to help him.

    Marco should be sent down to work on his timing and his shot. He's a rookie and is struggling. It is better in my opinion to build up his confidence rather than have it destroyed. Josh should be brought up with Grayson Allen and Marco being sent down to find their shots.
