    The NEW official 2020 Draft Thread

    Haven't you made enough threads about the draft that this type of discussion would fit in perfectly with?

    ORLANDO BUBBLE

    I Sure hope he is in Orlando when the Clippers play the Pelicans.

    He came out today and recanted his comments. It's interesting to see how quickly people forgive and forget when someone apologizes for being wrong. I wish some of our leaders - not mentioning any names - would learn this simple rule.

    The NEW official 2020 Draft Thread

    What the heck does this mean?
  7. If not Anderson there are still better options than Clarke at the SF position. We have Josh Jackson, Justise Winslow and Dillon Brooks who are beetter suited to play the SF position in my opinion. Clarke is solid as the big in a small ball lineup and the backup 4 in almost any matchup scenario.

    I own golf clubs but that isn't the same as being a golfer. 😄 What are you trying to say here?

    BLACK LIVES MATTER

    Stephen Jackson has come out in support of DeShaun Jackson's comments about jews attributed (falsely) to Adolph Hitler.
  11. I didn't restart this thread because... well honestly because I am lazy plus the commentary so far is too funny not to leave it up for everyone to see.

    Memphis Grizzlies players on twitter

    Stephen A Smith is just playing devil's advocate or he just doesn't understand the way the play in game works. To suggest the Grizzlies won't make the playoffs because of the play in is pure idiocy. Whoever gets the 8th spot has a huge advantage in the play-in game because they only need to win one game versus losing two back to back. I can't believe I am going to say this but Kendrick Perkins made the most sense. This world is really getting strange.
  13. There are quite a few assumptions there. Once I know for sure I will update the page.

    ESPN Sophomore Rankings? Where's JJJ?

    Well in defense of his playing time, you have a 6'8" rookie who can't defend on the perimeter that well or is quick enough to defend SFs and had a bad hip in the second half of the season. It took a while to figure out exactly how he fit in the rotation and once they did his hip started bothering him. Hopefully he will be a larger factor next season and moving forward.

    4. Jaren not fighting for a rebound when the team needs a rebound.

    Can this NBA season be saved?

    Please stop posting this idiots ramblings. PJ Tucker is not better than JV. 2/3rds of the names on this list aren't as good as JV. I assume you posted this to hear someone say the obvious.

    ESPN Sophomore Rankings? Where's JJJ?

    Are you thinking high scoring such as Klay Thompson or high scoring like DeMar DeRozen? Personally I think a 3 and D guy is what I am looking for. I don't believe the team needs more scoring. It needs better spacing, better defense and better ball rotation. Give me a Klay Thompson type and watch out for the Grizzlies. Dillon was pretty good in that role and no one would call him an elite 3 and D guy. Ja, Jaren and Winslow with JV down low and a deadly perimeter shooter and defender and the Grizzlies are serious contenders. We don't need a high scoring SG. We need someone willing to play an important role on the team.

    ESPN Sophomore Rankings? Where's JJJ?

    Jaren's injury doesn't affect his PER 36 numbers from last season or this season. He was healthy up to the All-Star break (when he played in the Rising Stars Challenge) and then took the rest of the season off. No one is ignoring anything. He was healthy enough to be working out with the team at the end of the season but there was no reason to activate him. He was supposed to work out last summer with the franchise but chose to attend Las Vegas and then return home instead. He traveled around the country doing camps for kids. Admirable but not exactly working on his weaknesses. Why are you repeatedly bringing up his thigh injury as if he had surgery on his knee or something? He wasn't rehabbing all summer. In my opinion, he was playing around with the rookies in Las Vegas (but not playing with them). He had fun being the face of the franchise but he didn't work on becoming a better player. That's why his numbers didn't improve. Not some phantom thigh bruise.

    ESPN Sophomore Rankings? Where's JJJ?

    Possibly. I saw the video where he is working on his three point shot almost exclusively. That wasn't very encouraging but then again, who wants to watch him working on defensive principles and positioning for rebounds on a video? It sucks that JJJ won't have a normal off-season this year. He really needs to work on fundamentals and this isn't the best environment for that work.

    ESPN Sophomore Rankings? Where's JJJ?

    https://www.basketball-reference.com/players/t/tatumja01.html If you look at his stats you see that he has improved in most areas every season. Compare the first two seasons for Tatum and Jackson and Jackson's numbers in his second season aren't as impressive when speaking strictly on development. That isn't to say JJJ can't improve, won't improve or has topped out already. It does mean that people questioning his off-season work has more ammunition than someone challenging Tatum's off-seasons with Boston.
