  1. Yea it might be a long shot to happen but I definitely think there is value there. He didn't have a good series against the Celtics but he can absolutely still contribute to a winning culture and winning basketball, so I think it's something they should consider.
  2. The Grizzlies should sign Marc and bring him off the bench. Convince him not to go back to Spain. That is valuable veteran leadership and good for about 8-10pts. And the city absolutely loves him. f Trade Dieng at the deadline or in the offseason for whatever you can get unless they think they can target someone the following year with the money coming off the books.

    Looks more like Aldrige to me

    Did We Make the Right Move?

    Our best player was always ZBo and Kyle's best player when he won a ring was Kawhi. That's not even close. And it's not as easy to make all star games in the East. Hands down? No.

    Mike never had a player remotely close in talent to Kawhi or we might have a championship ourselves. I think they're very comparable and can understand arguments either way.

    Sure, it's fine to question hires or to even wonder about optics based hiring. But the OP who originally responded clearly didn't take a look at any of her credentials and immediately wrote her off as being necessarily an optics hire. EDIT: Did they hire her because it looks good or because it looks bad if you hire a man after Ivey leaves? Maybe. But to assume she was without considering her credentials is unfair to her. I doubt this kind of thing happens once more women are in these positions and their value to the teams is recognized.

    Grizzles Trade Targets

    Rockets didnt lose because they had two ball dominant guards. They lost because they played PJ Tucker at the 5 and couldn't get rebounds.

    Never suggested she's more qualified than someone who has coached in the NBA on multiple levels. But you're minimizing her accomplishments as a basketball coach. Is she Darko or Ivey? Probably not. Who knows? What about being an assistant coach for an NBA requires more experience than 12 years as the head coach of a basketball team and a good mind? Should she have recruiting experience? Has it. Should she have at least some peripheral knowledge of analytics? Has it.

    While we're at it we should trade Jaren to the Bucks for Giannis

    On the one hand they dont matter match and on the other hand 12 years as a basketball coach and multiple degrees, to include a reputable law school (so shes intelligent) isn't enough to be qualified. See the issue there? Its really just sexism, assuming that a woman wouldn't add as much value to a team as a man or that she didnt earn her spot. Imagine when we start believing that groups or organizations are better off when they have diverse leadership groups because women, and minorities, add perspectives beyond what white men have been able to offer for as long as they've had the chance. Same is true for other races/cultures. Sure, sometimes people are hired because they check a demographic box. But to automatically assume a person is unqualified, when they haven't even looked at their credentials, simply because they're a woman, is sexist. The OP who suggested she was unqualified read a tweet, saw she was a woman, and made a blind assumption. So that's my point and it's a fair one. edit: Using the logic that theyre replacing Ivey with another woman to check a box, shouldn't we also question Darko's credentials because he's replacing a foreign born coach that just left to coach overseas? Or should we take his incredibly impressive resume at face value?

    Honestly not sure why this guy is qualified. Probably just hired because he's from Serbia so we can get Jokic in FA.

    Or maybe she has been a coach for 12 years and understands offense, defense, and player management

    The argument that shes been a winning coach for 12 years and has worked along side a very reputable analytics department is not a good argument? What exactly should your accomplishments be to be qualified for a position as an assistant coach? I realize you said she is plenty qualified, so I guess I just don't understand your point. edit: "Prior to MIT, Raman was the top assistant coach and primary recruiter at Wellesley College for six years. She previously served as an assistant coach at her alma mater Tufts, where she graduated in 1996 with a degree in international relations. Raman also has a degree from Boston College Law School." "MIT participates in the NCAA’s Division III, the tier of mostly smaller colleges and universities that prohibit athletic scholarships and are seldom viewed as pathways to the professional ranks. The Cambridge school’s most prominent claim to sports fame has typically been the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, the so-called Super Bowl of analytics made popular by Moneyball." So where is the flaw in my argument? Someone, please... why isn't this woman qualified?

    She's also coached for the last 12 years.... but unqualified . This is why I assume it's just at troll. Could be they're just out of touch or dumb.
