    Trading the pick

    I would trade the 4 pick to Chicago for 7, 23, and a future 1st, but I don't know if Chicago would want to give up two first round draft picks just to move up 3 spots. However, if Chicago feels like they have their guy and believes Dallas (#5) and Orlando (#6) will pick him, then they will make the trade. I like Collin Sexton, reminds me a lot like the Fox kid in Sacramento, I like Trae Young because he's entertaining and has crazy range. However, none of these picks will matter if the Grizzlies find a way to get better at player development. Our player development is just awful.

    The worst thing about getting the 4th pick

    I would now consider trading this pick and move down 2-4 picks. I'll be fine with Sexton and Young, and getting something extremely valuable in return. I don't know who they can pick, knowing that Ayton and Bagley will more then likely be off the board, and I'm not completely sold on Doncic yet.

    The 2018 Free Agents

    Only for like 10 games because 2 of 3 of those are injury prone...
  4. I will say this, the Grizzlies won't be competitive until the 2020 season. With that being said, it gives Bickerstaff 82 games to prove himself as a head coach. If the win total for the 2018-2019 season is in the 20's, then the questions about Bickerstaff will start. If they're in the 30's, then he's fine, and if the Grizzlies finish .500 or better, then I believe it is exceptional season. The thing is, Chris Wallace is committed to making sure this team is going to the playoffs. No playoffs for the 2018-19 and 19-20 season will drive Wallace nuts, if he is still in Memphis.
  5. Typical Chris Wallace hire to me. I didn't hear anything going around involving interviews with other guys going across the league. However, I feel like this is a shot for JB to do his job. Gasol and Parsons will be on the back nine of their contracts, which means you can barely start seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I think Conley has another 3 years. Needless to say, Bickerstaff has a year to improve himself as a head coach. If he struggles in 18-19, then the 19-20 season will be a season where he seat will be a little smokey. I think Wallace expectations is to get this team to the postseason next year. And with no first round pick in 2019, mine as well go all out and see if we can get into the postseason. Basically, his expectations will be low. Developing Dillon Brooks will be the key to me. Everyone else are tough to figure what they are.

    Fire Chris Wallace NOW

    Wallace mentioned something about 7 year playoff streak is something he is content about, but the Grizzlies never won a WCF game in that stint. I would fire him, but I would've thought he would be fired by now...
  7. If I am not mistaken, there was a murder just outside the Forum a few years ago. I don't have a problem walking to and from the forum. When I attend games, I usually park at the location off Linden and B.B. King (just outside the guitar factory). However, it depends on where you go at night and who you're with. If you park near Huey's and Peabody, I think you're fine because you're usually surrounding by people. I'm not going to get into statistics or anything like that. But when I see murders that are senseless and stupidity, it makes you feel uncomfortable walking anywhere at night, regardless where you are at.
  8. A winless February is exactly what the Grizzlies need. The Grizzlies, who are now losers of 11 games in a row, does have a pretty easy March in terms of the schedule. However, how does this compare to the other teams that are "rebuilding" or "tanking"? Current NBA Standings on March 1st 23. Chicago 20-41...........21 games remaining....11 at home......10 away.......12 games vs. opponents under .500.........9 games vs. opponents over .500 24. Brooklyn 20-42..........20 games remaining....8 at home........12 away.......9 games vs. opponents under .500..........11 games vs. opponents over .500 25. Dallas. 19-43..........20 games remaining...9 at home..........11 away.......10 games vs. opponents under .500.....10 games vs. opponents over .500 26. Atlanta 19-43.........20 games remaining....9 at home.......11 away..........5 games vs. opponents under .500....15 games vs. opponents over .500 27. Phoenix 19-44..........19 games remaining....9 at home.....10 away..........6 games vs. opponents under .500.......13 games vs. opponents over .500 28. Memphis 18-42.......22 games remaining.....9 at home......13 away.........9 games vs. opponents under .500......13 games vs. opponents over .500 29. Sacramento 18-43......21 games remaining.....13 at home.....8 away.........9 games vs. opponents under. 500.......12 games vs. opponents over .500 30. Orlando 18-43......21 games remaining......12 at home.....9 away........11 games vs. opponents under .500......10 games vs. opponents over .500 Grizzlies remaining schedule: vs Denver, @ Orlando, @ San Antonio, @ Chicago, vs Utah, @ Dallas, vs Milwaukee, vs Chicago, vs Denver, @ Brooklyn, @Philadelphia, @ Charlotte, vs Los Angeles Lakers, @ Minnesota, vs Portland, @ Utah, @ Portland, @ New Orleans, vs Detroit, @ Minnesota, @ Oklahoma City
  9. Even if TA and Randolph was still in Memphis, tickets would be relatively cheap. Probably in the $4-$9 range for terrace level seats. Tuesday night, bad Phoenix team, no Bueno. Nobody goes to Broadway and watch bad performers perform on stage.

    Grizzlies on FBI/NCAA List

    I thought about 2. There's way too many guys that leave college as Freshmen that just aren't ready (Kobi Simmons for an example). However, the NBA and NCAA has got to workout something this summer.
  11. To me, he's an average coach that complains a lot. And whenever we lose games, I feel like he is talking about the same thing over and over again in his press conferences. I will put him in the group to be considered to be hired, but I'm sure there would be better options that are available.
  12. Congrats, you do that. But I'm not talking about you. I'm talking about the fan base as a whole. Yes, Predators fans show up, don't get me wrong. However, When the Titans played Jacksonville in a win and go home in December, crowd was average. In addition, whenever Seattle, Green Bay, New England, and Dallas show up, their "fans" invade Nissan Stadium. And please don't give me the "weather was terrible" talk, I won't buy it.
  13. If you want consider putting West Memphis, Tunica, Hernando, Olive Branch, South Haven, and Covington into the Memphis population that's fine. However, a lot of people don't because all of those towns that I mentioned with the exception of Covington aren't in the state of Tennessee. Meanwhile, Nashville is fortunate enough where their counties has towns that are rising in terms of population. When a lot of people think about Nashville's population, they will include the suburbs that aren't in Davidson County. However, they will include Memphis' suburbs in the population because it's in Shelby County, but won't put West Memphis, or any of the Mississippi towns because they're not in the state of Tennessee. And yes, those fans will show up for their Preds, but that's it. They won't show up for Vanderbilt football, or Vanderbilt basketball. Even the Titans games are poor at times in attendance wise.

    Potential Offseason Trade

    2nd round picks don't mean s**t in this league

    Potential Offseason Trade

    No because if that trade would be accepted. The Grizzlies would not have a 1st round pick in 2018 and 2019.
