    Grizzlies/NBA trade deadline 2021 and beyond

    I agree we're not ready yet. But your notion that us winning the next two games are the same chances of us winning the lottery is so incredibly off. Yes, we're not ready, but this draft isn't going to solve it.

    Grizzlies/NBA trade deadline 2021 and beyond

    Tanking is ridiculous and doesn't work. Deliberately trying to lose to "double our chances" is even more ridiculous.
  3. btw all this talk about how great melton is and he just consistently throws the ball away - im terrified every time he touches the ball. im 100% on board him + BC being the starting point of any trade we make
  4. To me its not particularly close. Right now X is far superior in just about every way possible. IMO paying BC any significant amount of money would be a mistake. He should be the odd man out in our consolidation trade.
  5. Kiss the season goodbye with this strategy imo. This is Dillon's job. Born to take this on. Will it work? Who knows - but live with the results.
  6. This isn't happening. He doesn't play back to backs for one thing. They're not going to play him in a meaningless game. I don't care who plays what position but Jaren shouldn't be in the game. Hell.... give all of the minutes to Frazier and Winslow and rest BC Tyus Bane and Melton too. Bring Mcdermott, give Jontay porter a hell of a lot of burn.
  7. Of note, because the big picture is also a thing, is that we guaranteed to be above .500 this year as our final regular season record. That is a win. No matter what happens, even though the final result might end up being disappointing if we lose in the play-in, this year has been a success in my mind. It's not perfect; there are a million things we have to get better at and we have to make very hard decisions about how to form the team moving forward. In the end though, this is the 2nd year of something special. We were not expected to be competitive this year, yet here we are playing high stakes games on a nightly basis, gaining valuable experience that young teams need to succeed in the long run. I'm very optimistic about the outlook for this team and I believe the season has been a success, no matter what the final outcome is.
  8. Winning two games in a row is harder than winning one out of two. Math.
  9. A win is a win. We have to have them and we got it. But man, we've got to find a way to play better. I have exactly 0% faith with the ball in Melton's hands. They should stop trying to force that issue.

    current rotation and needed adjustments

    Melton has to go off in a quarter to make up for his constant turnovers in key moments, which he has been able to do. If he could simply not turn the ball over he would easily be the best 2 on the team

    Ja Morant x Lamelo Ball

    I've never understood these comparisons. What difference does it make who is better? Ja is on our team and I'm so grateful he is. Now, I might feel differently if I'd seen Zion play in Grizzlies blue for the last two years, but I'm thankful we got him over Zion. I think Ja is a winner and even though Zion is obviously a dominant force, I think Ja will have the better career. So let's just appreciate who we have.
  12. This is just bad effort at this point
