    Summer League Chats

    The Memphis Grizzlies will be participating in the Utah Summer league and the Vegas Summer league. Since both summer leagues are so close together I figured we should have one central thread for conversations about the summer league rosters and competition. I will be writing pre-game commentary as best as I can for each game as well. This is just for overall summer league conversations. Is anyone contemplating attending either of the summer league games?

  3. Everyone knows Jaren has a history of recovering from injury slower than originally expected. I’m not trying to drag him down but rather want to know when people expect him back from this injury?

    Come on. Do you really believe the reigning Executive of the Year in the NBA knows as much as the posters on this message board do?

    I find it difficult to believe the Grizzlies haven't announced the roster for the summer leagues yet. They start playing Tuesday so surely the squad is practicing by now.

    Ja signs his max deal

    He and Ziaire are going to be in Beast Mode next season! It's summertime and I have my sunglasses on!

    SloMo Appreciation thread

    So Ja_Rules is suggesting we sign and trade SloMo to keep SloMo? Or was he suggesting Minnesota sign Kyle just to trade him back to us? If that's the case what does Memphis have that would match Kyle's salary in the trade? Honestly, the Grizzlies have too many players under contract already. I am at a loss to understand what Ja_Rules means by a S&T to keep Kyle.

    The team could take a step backward this season but think about how much PT X, BC and Santi will get to improve while JJJ is out. ZW will get more minutes as well as the rookies too. All this bodes well for success later in the season and moving forward. Sunshine Patrol back in service!

    Who would you have wanted from Minnesota to replace the salary of resigning Kyle?

    JJJ Stress fracture

    He didn't jump as high as JJJ either. It's landing after jumping up high that causes the most stress on foot bones. We all want JJJ to recover fully and return to action but there is a reason for concern with a stress fracture in the foot. According to the Mayo Clinic Web site: Marc was many things, but he didn't jump like Jaren, nor did he run like Jaren.

    The 2022 NBA Free Agents & trades

    Ja played 67 games his rookie season, 63 games his second season and 57 games this season. I assume each of the missed games involved him resting in some manner.

    Memphis Grizzlies and NBA Roster Moves

    No one has to offer him anything but the veteran minimum. The Spurs owe him the entire contract minus what he signs with someone else for. He isn't going to get a raise over his old contract so whatever he signs for is all the obtaining team has to pay. The Spurs are on the hook for the rest.

    SloMo Appreciation thread

    I'm sure everyone has a memory of Kyle. Mine is off the court but absolutely hilarious. My wife and I got to travel to Denver a few years ago on the team plane and were taken to the game on one of the team's two busses. There was one that left early for only the team and the second one for the fans on the trip and some other people associated with the team. The players had the option of riding on the second bus, so they left the front 8 rows open of them and the rest of us were huddled in the back. Kyle was sitting in the 2nd row on the aisle in his uniform and warmups as we boarded. Suddenly one of the Grizzlies staff jumps on the bus and asks "Has anyone seen Kyle? Is Kyle on the bus?" Now Kyle is tall in real life. I know you don't really get that impression seeing him on the court with all the other big men but he's hard to miss on the 2nd row of a bus with no one else around him and in uniform. as you can imagine Kyle, always appearing composed and quiet, just raised his hand and said "I'm right here?" He literally was less than five feet from the staff member. The staffer left the bus, I Assume to tell whoever was looking for him that he was on the bus. After he got off the bus Kyle turned around to us and said "Is it really that hard to see me?" We all broke up laughing. To this day whenever my wife or I am looking for someone that is right out in the open we follow up with "Is Kyle on the bus?" And laugh all over again. Good luck on your bus rides with the Timberwolves Kyle. We will miss your class and leadership.

    JJJ Stress fracture

    The problem with a stress fracture, from what I have heard and I am not a doctor, is that it is more aggravated from jumping and landing. JJJ's not being a plodder but more of a high flyer actually works against him with this type of injury. Of course, I hope I am wrong but I am not expecting him to make an appearance this season before the All-Star break.

    When will JJJ return to the court?

    No. I am just trying to get a feeling on what people are expecting. I thought I made that perfectly clear when I wrote " I’m not trying to drag him down but rather want to know when people expect him back from this injury?"

    JJJ Stress fracture

    Foot problems are very scary for big men. Knees are bad too. Basically anything below the waist is a problem for bigs.
