  1. I agree. So I won't overreact. thoughts on what I saw 1) Wow, we have zero athleticism. 2) Chandler couldn't stay with Bogdanovic; how is he going to guard more athletic SFs? I want Chandler to be good. I think he is healthy enough to contribute to this team. He does not need to be the starting SF. 3) Conley and Gasol won't shoot this bad every night (I hope). But as a whole, if we are this overwhelmed athletically, we are going to have to shoot better than this. 4) Rebounding is a problem 5) The team looked lost on both ends. I am hoping that as the team plays together more this will get better.
  2. Not sure I would do this one, but at some point this year, Green and Temple need to be the basis to take back someone's bad contract with a first round pick attached. It's time to accumulate some assets.
  3. You would trade our best shot at a future superstar for one year of Jimmy Butler in which our best case scenario would be conference semifinals??? Wow

    Preseason basketball thread

    I am not ready to declare anything in the preseason. Most people thought Chalmers was back in the preseason last year. He was a disaster. I will only concern myself when the games begin to count.

    New Flooring

    I like the new court. The new white uniforms are decent. I hate both the blue uniforms.
  6. Why? He was a solid role player last year when he played. He will never be the guy we signed. But if he can contribute, let him play.

    Grizz to sign Shelvin Mack? Not directly related to the Grizz, but here is an article on Yoenis Cespedes. He has calcium deposits/ bone spurs on his heels that are aggravating his achilles. Recovery from surgery is 8 to 10 months. Surgery is the last option because of all the complications that come with doing surgery on or around the achilles. Generally the individuals try resting it first. And the problem may go on for years until the person can't take it anymore. Am I the only one who thinks this sounds like exactly what Conley has gone through? If it turns out this is what he went through, be ready for him to never be the same.

    Grizz to sign Shelvin Mack?

    The thing is every site I have read says 3 weeks before you are walking normal again. Obviously it would take longer to play basketball. But 5 months seems long if you are walking normally within 3 weeks. It's been more than 5 months, and he isn't playing. Maybe I'd be less concerned if Vince and Chandler hadn't been such disasters. But I am worried.

    I was told I'm crazy the other day on here for wondering the same thing. Bone spur surgery on your heel doesn't have you out for more than 5 months. Something is wrong.

    I like Mack. But he's just a solid backup. So why do we keep adding PGs? Could it be they don't expect Conley to be ready or even possibly limited???????????

    With The 4th Pick In The 2018 NBA Draft

    I was one of the Wendell Carter votes. Still would take him over Jackson. However, I am loving what I saw from Jackson and can't wait for me to say I was wrong.

    With The 4th Pick In The 2018 NBA Draft

    Glad you had zero concerns. He just had another back surgery. There is no such thing as a short term injury if it involves back surgery.

    Why Memphis Must Take Wendell Carter @ # 4

    I think Jackson has a higher ceiling than Carter. I also find it hilarious when people say 18/19 year olds are close to their ceiling.
  14. I'm pessimistic because of the Grizzlies history. Vince was going to be ready by the start of the season. Chandler was going to be ready by the start of the season. Grizzlies medical history is awful. Now we have a guy who was originally sidelined with an Achilles injury (that had bothered him for seasons). Then the team announced he was having surgery for bone spurs on his heel. However, all the research on the internet I have found suggests that heel bone spur surgery is a minor thing with a quick recovery period. Here we are more than 5 months later and he still isn't ready to go. That is scary to me. It truly makes the conspiracy theorist in me believe that it was a form of achilles surgery and not bone spurs. You can be optimistic. I'm terrified, especially knowing a true achilles injury is essentially a career killer.
  15. I'm not talking about the injury. I believe he could have come back in a limited form as well. I'm talking about the surgery. Surgery for bone spurs in your heel should not take this long to recover. This is a reasonable take. Although I am still perplexed that he isn't playing ball yet.
