    Jaren Jackson the X factor

    We'll find out more about his "go to" abilities with Dillon on the court. We've already seen better games from Jaren. Dillon's mid-range game open up passing lanes for Jaren compared to the "let it fly" guys. When Jaren's involved his play improves on both ends. ::"

    It is a good new look for Jaren going away from the spin to hesitation and straight line on his drives. Awesome ! Go Grizzlies!
  3. The Grizzlies target high BBIQ and multi-dimensional players. He is in the rotation now because he is contributing. So, not long.

    The bench last night

    Interesting clip of Adams leaving his man to avoid defensive 3 seconds.

    Jaren could be one of the top scorers in the league if he had a jump shot. He has nothing going in the mid-range. Darn it!
  6. Jaren is a beast. I've never seen anyone get off his shot as quick. He's bigger and stronger and has room for improvement.

    He may be a shoot firster. The difference for me is that the Warriors have an offense where lateral movement and long rebounds create opportunities for all. I question whether Luka can win a championship.

    In short, shoot first point guards do not win championships.

    I would like to see Jaren at the top where Marc used to set picks. He could be a good point 5. How would you defend that?

    Four for $M61 won't happen. By the end of the season Jaren will be a star or will head for free agency.

    Hey! I'm glad to oblige. I know you're not all in on Jaren. I don't know what you think a Grizzlie championship team looks like. We remind me of the talent laden and futile OKC teams of a decade ago. The GnG Griz teams had a long history of beating up teams with mis-matched talent, like the Clips, OKC, Bucks, et al. Griz fans shouldn't need reminding of the futility of these talent-rich teams. Have you forgotten this lesson? We don't want to be one of them. I don't want a Russell W., Allen I. type situation. As a GM I would trade Giannas, or Porter, or any of the great shooting 2's for Jaren. If you want to build a team around a skillset, it is Jaren's.

    Jaren's skills are best utilized when he has the ball in the middle of the court. He competes with Ja for this spot. Some GM somewhere without a scoring point guard should offer the Grizzlies a young center and good stretch 4 for Jaren. That would fill in the Grizzlies around the annointed one, Ja. Personally I prefer to trade Ja. We can generate offense without him.

    Grizzly starters to begin the season?

    I doubt the only goals of the offseason deals were to get off JV's contract, acquire a project and tread water with Adams while our prized youngsters progress toward a 2nd contract delimma. Since Jenkins likes "positionless basketball" that may be the plan, with twin towers of Adams and Jaren as the fall back.

    The offense was a problem last year when we had Jonas spreading the floor. With Adams the problem is even greater. Tilman brings the option of switching between the five position or the four, freeing Jaren to be help side defender which is his forte. On offense he can play both positions as well. This combination makes the Grizzlies a team the others have to scheme against. It allows Jaren to progress without the stress of fouling centers that can overpower him.
