  1. Big night for the Grizzlies. They are at home against a beatable team while the Kings host the WRriors, Raptors are visiting the Balzers and the Thunder play in Denver.
  2. It looks like they are starting to figure things out...at home at least.

    Yes. He’s a free agent at the end of the season.

  5. Should have found the delete button before I saw this!

  8. That’s when he tells us he’s going to Chancun for the rest of the season. 😄
  9. The key phrase is “we don’t know why.” There could have been problems that JB saw that we aren’t privy to. It would be nice if people would answer that question but it either is t being asked or is t being answered. Since the Grizzlies control the media access with Grind City Media, it isn’t likely we will find out either.
  10. I honestly don't understand what you wrote in the first sentence. I don't know who SMB is supposed to be either. As for players on the team, I have to agree there are some players who are less than ideal on the roster. The team has had to use lesser talented players to make up for the front office wasting money on Chandler Parsons. There is a finite amount of money available for the franchise after all. You do understand this don't you? Your final argument again ignores the law of large numbers. This is an important concept I wish you could understand. Four games is not significant in the realm of the NBA. Brooks is earning more minutes clearly as is Casspi. If Anderson continues to struggle he'll lose more minutes to Brooks and Casspi but I doubt he'll lose his closing role any time soon. But you bring up a good point. Casspi has been playing much better than Brooks over the last four games using your numbers. So why are you being critical of him taking minutes ahead of Brooks? Was it simply because Brooks played one good quarter? Seems like a spurious argument to me. Let's see if Brooks can continue to produce with some form a regularity. Let's see if he can get others involved on offense. Let's see if he can play team defense. The fact that Brooks played at all shows that JB is open to letting other players into his preferred 9 man rotation. Now it is up to the players to earn those minutes and it takes more than one good shooting night to earn the minutes. If Brooks continues to produce in limited minutes then he deserves more opportunities. I just don't criticize the coach for not immediately giving them to him on the basis of one half.

  12. Using your logic Mack shouldn't have been playing against Denver then. Over the course of the season Mack has been on of the top players for the team. His PER and WP48 show that. He isn't perfect by any means. He is human and some nights he fails. He also has nights where he starts slowly and finishes strong. You have to take the entire picture into account and not make rash decisions based on small sets of data. It's the law of large numbers argument again. I don't want a coach who makes game deciding decisions based on small sets of data. That's gambling not coaching. Hoping a player will remain hot enough to overcome his inadequacies in so many other areas isn't smart coaching. You can sit on your couch and say if player B was in instead of Player A it would have been better and blame that on the coach but it's a fools argument. You can't be proven wrong. the coach made the correct decision based on all the facts he had. You would be criticizing JB if he played Brooks and he shot 0-5 in the second half just as vehemently as you are criticizing him now after he went 4-4 in the first half. The reality is Brooks was more likely to go 0-5 in the second which would be around his season average. It wasn't poor coaching. It was poor execution by the players on the court that led to the loss in Denver.
  13. Did someone pee in your corn flakes today? You are making dubious arguments all over the place in my opinion. Settle down and think for a second. Do you really believe Curry could take the Grizzlies for example deep into the playoffs (not even suggesting a title) if he were traded straight up for Conley? Do you? Personally I believe there is a reason Curry didn't win a title until Bogut, Thompson, Iquodala and Green arrived and matured into their roles.
  14. You don't know what someone would do if he wasn't in the game. You wish or want or dream but you don't know. I do know that the players on the court have historically been the more consistent and better players and they missed the shots that could have won the game. I don't blame JB for not living up to my illusions and dreams of performance. That's why I don't say he played the "wrong" players. He played the correct ones according to all the information he had.
  15. Yes but I don't believe West was on the Warriors first title team. The point of discussion was whether or not Curry could win without talent around him. I believe KBM is correct in saying it takes more than just one superstar to make a team successful unless your name is LeBron. Curry had multiple talented players around him. To imply Curry could carry a team by himself is a stretch. We have never seen him on a team that went far who didn't have extremely talented players around him.
