    JV career playoff stats...starter or role player?

    if ja is not a star, then I simply don't know what one is tbh. I think some on here look way to hard at things and you can't see the forest for the trees. slim.

    2018 NBA Draft: How Would You Rank the Players?

    so our number 4 pick is currently 7th best looking back now.... sadly, I think that might be a hair high. slim.

    Grizzlies/NBA trade deadline 2021 and beyond

    i get what you are saying, but believe that if we ship out jv for an upgrade on the perimeter...that would set us back as far as wins. jjj would struggle big time being the work-horse rebounder. im not saying that i have the answers, but i don't believe that jjj is anywhere near ready for that load. slim.

    to me, this puts way too much stock in jjj. I know everyone believes he is the #2 and eventually will take this role, but, to date, I can't tell. even if we assume that he is going to commit to being a rebounder, how can we assume that he could stay on the court? i have said numerous times, but will say again- we are sitting at the poker table big time moving forward. until proven differently, dbrooks is our number 2. jjj has to fight to get back to number 3 for now. slim.

    The future of the Grizzlies - next step

    it’s going to depend upon the fo’s decisions moving forward mostly. you are correct- I don’t believe ja has been holding interviews but this, to date, has been a different angle. it’s been about our up and coming duo. if that duo proves to be a single, then I could see things changing. all I’m saying is very good players like to play with very good players. folks run still to play with lebron. not saying ja is that but the illustration stands. collectively, the spurs had that same allure. slim.

    ? talking about free agents willing to come here. slim.

    The future of the Grizzlies - next step

    agreed for the great majority of cases. however, I do believe that ja changes that equation. stars love to shine and elite pgs cast a very bright light. ja is an old school pg. he changes that narrative providing we don’t make other silly fo decisions. slim.

    ☝️ absolutely, and the perfect scenario for 12 wanting out down the road. slim.

    Jaren Jackson the X factor

    they wouldn’t. this is a very young team that believes in each other and I wouldn’t change that for the world. this team doesn’t have a savvy vet willing to use the media or rumor mill to call young players out. we just need to rely on our eyes. you said yourself- yea, he needs to work on this, that and yea...that too. if I’m in the fo, and a phone call comes in inquiring about jjj, I’m going to listen. I’m not giving up on jjj- I want him to mature and thrive in m, but I also have to start looking at what is and not what could be... we once had a guy named stromile. had top 5 talent in the world- not a joke. it just never clicked for him. I’m not saying that’s jjj, but he has to start proving it himself. jjj needs to show this organization and city that he can learn from the past and put the work into his game in order to overcome some issues. work with a big on boxing out. proper footwork. not so much reaching but better positioning. improve core and lower body strength to take the box punishment. just if you ask me. slim.

    Jaren Jackson the X factor

    this is scary. being gifted does not exclude one from the fundamentals of the game. it enhances the fundamentals. ...sitting at the poker table boys.. slim.

    Jaren Jackson the X factor

    I’m with you tb. I’m pulling for jjj, but I’m not going to baby him on these boards or anywhere else. this is pro sports. it’s time for jjj to put work in and stop talking about it. he was atrocious from 3 down the stretch and has not improved 1 inch with his reaching and silly fouls. slim.

    Grizzlies/NBA trade deadline 2021 and beyond

    I just read the recap in the dmemphian of kleinman’s end of the year media chat. he seemed high on winslow- maybe it’s just suit talk, but I hope he gets it right. ja’s first re-sign will be here before we know it. everything has been loose and happy to date but things are quickly becoming more serious. ja is probably the best player to ever wear a griz uniform. the fo has to be up to the task. I don’t believe picking up winslows $13 is part of that path. slim.
