  2. Too bad you can’t or won’t say the same thing about Jaren Jackson.
  3. What has there been to be positive about since his rookie year? He has played less than half of the games played since he came on board, he still fouls far too often, he doesn't rebound well, the only development we have seen came on his shooting percentages last season and they dropped back down this year. What have I missed to be praising him about? However, the criticism this time wasn't leveled by me. I just made a quip about other people's criticism. Instead of attacking me for my beliefs, why don't you address the issue of Jaren's failure to block out Wiggins at a turning point of an important game? Why don't you attack the post and not the poster??? Or is it just easier to point fingers at a poster's jest instead of defending a player's mistake?
  4. Are you seriously going to blast me about my comment made in jest and ignore the previous statements that weren't made as a joke?

  6. So you are upset about the trade for Winslow and don't want him back next season but believe he is important to play in a possible elimination game? Do I understand this correctly?
  7. There are still plenty of good seats available. Apparently the season ticket holders aren't buying up the tickets.
  8. We aren't. You are trying to quote some stat that you don't exactly remember and making a huge conspiracy theory out of it. The simpler answer is that in this very small set of examples the Grizzlies caught teams off guard, had players out themselves or were playing teams without dominant bigs to begin with. The teams that are better than the Grizzlies are better whether Jonas plays or not.
  9. But I thought JJJ's rebounding numbers were so much better this season...
  10. If you say so but I see Jaren playing against the PFs more than the true centers with Clarke and Tillman taking those assignments.

    Where Will The Grizzlies Finish?

    Hats off to the winning picks! Grizzgolf, Blackwatch and PJS joined me on the winners podium (although my pick was first). absolutgrizzguy and QMemphis made their selections after the May games began so they are noted here but not on the top podium. chipc3 April 28 grizzgolf April 29 Blackwatch April 29 pjs April 29 Paladin May 8 absolutegrizzguy May 8 QMemphis May 9
  12. Where will the Grizzlies finish in the Western Conference?
  13. JJJ is assumed to be playing Center when he's paired with Brandon Clarke and/or Xavier Tillman despite the reality that JJJ plays on the perimeter and lets Clarke and Tillman take the workload inside. My eye test has JJJ playing PF with undersized centers but that is just my opinion.
  14. Yes. Jaren did show "some" improvement in his 11 games played this season.
  15. JJJ averaged 23.5 MPG this season. That’s not a lot different from his rookie year of 26.1 or his second season of 28.5. However, his not having two play consecutive games probably have him more energy so that could explain his slight increase. I believe putting his numbers per 36 is silly since he’s never averaged anywhere close to that. It makes him sound like a far better rebounder than he’s ever been. For instance, JV’s per 36 rebound numbers are 15.9 this season. Nearly double what JJJ has averaged.

    Grizzlies/NBA trade deadline 2021 and beyond

    We got Ja from the 2nd pick not the 12th. I agree that the Grizzlies still need more talent to make a move in the West. Even if they don't get lucky and move up a top 14 pick in this draft should help.
  17. I'd be pretty disappointed if the season ticket holders don't buy up every available seat so no San Antonio fans are in the arena!
  18. I don't know where you got those stats from. ESPN.com has him averaging 5.6 this season which is also a huge improvement but no where near 7.8 RPG. The Grizzlies NBA page also has him averaging 5.6 RPG. His career averages are 4.7 RPG. Most likely the higher number is an outlier due to a small sample size.
  19. Did you believe that DB ran into Green? If so it is a foul regardless of how weak Green's fall was to insure the call. In hindsight we know that there weren't any other controversial calls that could have been overturned but Jenkins didn't have that luxury at that moment. Why was DB in the game with his five fouls and 6 and a half minutes remaining is a great question. Why Jenkins didn't ask for the replay isn't.

    That I would like to see. The real question is who wants to see LeBron & Co or Steph woop up on the Grizzlies again late Friday night? Why ruin the start of the weekend that way when the Grizzlies losing gives them an outside shot at getting lucky #13 in the lottery?
  21. There was no way the refs were going to overturn DB's 6th foul. Sure Draymond took a dive but DB ran into him also. Why lose a timeout with 6:30 remaining on a call that wasn't going to be overturned?
  22. Actually if JJJ averaged 7 rebounds a game people would be much happier with him.

    Draft pick. Everyone should be cheering for the Spurs to get the 8th spot.
