    Thoughts about the off season "rebuild"

    I think that conley will be moving and that throws such a wrench into the situation. it’s about impossible to predict what all that could mean for the draft, fa, and additional moves. chip has mentioned an interesting theory- if k irving leaves boston, then they could show a great deal of interest in conley. their cupboard is stocked with young talent so one could envision a conley move nullifying conveying our pick. the fo would have to insist on taking away the pick burden if conley were to be moved to boston. what if we land the 1 spot? would that change conley’s thinking about his future? would the fo want conley to stay no matter the scenario? if we landed zion, does this organization believe we’d have a shot with this group within the next 2 seasons? I believe I’d be looking very hard at moving conley no matter the scenario. although, conley, zion, jjj, me and you would be an incredible team. fun to dream. the league would not frown upon pairing jjj and zion- not that the league would or ever could have a hand in such matters. slim.

    Could Luke Walton coach the Grizzlies?

    dave jaeger interests me much more. dave is a heck of a coach but probably too much history here. slim.

    Chris Wallace Appreciation Thread

    thanks chris. I remember he met with a small group of us when he first got the job. he met us at a buffalo wild wings and answered all questions we threw his way. good man. slim.
  4. like the moves. hopefully, it’s more than a perception move and pera will have the nerve to hire an alpha at the gm/top spot. this think tank/group process has been a miserable failure. have a guy with the ego and nerve to stand up in the draft room and hired me to make these calls and this is how we are rolling- end of discussion. slim.

    Grizzlies keeping Mike Conley

    one thing that has not been mentioned is the fact that conley could be traded in the summer for a deal including a pick-at the draft. slim.

    Grizzlies acquire Avery Bradley

    if he cashed the checks as gm during that time, then he owns it. slim.

    agreed geoff, hire shane

    yea, caulkins. he wrote an article suggesting shane. for the record, I’m saying bring in shane to be the top guy- your head of b-ball ops. the gm, as I would envision it, would work under him. I’m not suggesting that shane would be our gm. slim.

    agreed geoff, hire shane

    i guess you’ve been pleased with all things griz fo. I can only guess that you don’t understand that there’s a completely other side to b-ball ops. It’s not just contracts and long-term fit. If you’re not going to be winning big here, you better have the lower-bowlers hearts with you. i actually see this last week as a little encouraging as well, but there’s a huge fan segment out there (bongo ladies of the griz world) that the fo and ownership had better pay attention to. no disrespect, but I think they’ll risk increasing your little lol’s as opposed to not having the bongos in the lower bowls. just my take. lol. slim.

    agreed geoff, hire shane

    it’d be the smartest thing he’s done since purchasing the team. immediately after the 82nd game, fire the entire fo staff and have shane assemble his fo staff. slim.

    agreed geoff, hire shane

    I believe pera could convince battier to come and be the top brass of the grizz. I think it’d be an incredibly intelligent move and would instantly give credibility back to a comical group of characters. have shane be the man under pera and he would then assemble his own fo. I know that shane has a good gig going in south beach, but this would be too great of an opportunity to pass up on imo. pera, this would save the die-hards you’re holding onto by a fingernail- those that don’t understand why you abandoned gasol, ta and zbo. that describes a great deal of season-ticket buying, lower bowlers. you want to truly get their trust and admiration back? hire shane. it’d work and he’s highly intelligent and charismatic. slim.
  15. ha, I’m with y’all. sign him for a day in the summer, hire him for a pr position within the franchise and send zbo out into the community. basically, his pitch will be- buy some tickets or I’ll beat yo as5!! jk zbo. much love. slim.
