    Chicago Bulls @ Memphis Grizzlies - 1/27/21

    GB gets the ball to start 2nd half, they need a td on that possession

    Grizz Getting Off On Opponents

    agree, Jaren has the physical tools, persona, skills with huge upside. It's what he decides to do with these god given talents and commitment that is required...we all know of others who just didn't achieve to their potential. And biggest step for any of this is to happen is to stay healthy. I think he's at tipping point from being an elite player if he can get near a full season in without injury, or alternatively another injury this season that will label him totally differently...

    Hollinger on Xavier Tillman

    we need to establish a higher bar on our expectations for our draft picks and young players. Before you all take shots at me, Tillman is a nice add to our depth as a team. He has game, but lets' not over drink the kool aid. He filled in admirably last night playing his best game, 29 minutes, 12 points, 6 rebounds and shooting 65%. But in preparing for the draft, the Grizz would evaluate a player upside/potential, his ceiling, both short and long term..Tillman's best potential outcome/upside, maybe a low-end starter...more likely a rotation/key reserve...an efficient two way player. Is he going to be a Ja or JJJ, a potential all-star, not likely. I would place BC ahead of him in potential, and his best fit on this team and league is as a 6th man. Don't crap on me, but lets set our expectations reasonably, and celebrate his successes. I want more from our starters and key 2nd line rotation.

    So if we learn JV is positive, then the whole Grizz team would quarantine as he would have had contact with everyone on court, plane, dressing room, which would include coaches, staff and arena workers? Is that how this works? Trying to understand how you think it works?

    Last try...two big, bruising NBA centers going at it and being very physical? I'm trying hard here....
  6. what happened to the trend of the month with small ball? BUT I agree the 5 position and importance is evolving...the trend is moving towards 7 feet again, athletic and the ideal weight depends on how they use their frame, but add 265-275 to that profile. If you look at the top prospects at the 5 this year, the majority are bigger than the past.

    haha, ok..now that i read it again...maybe I should have said they were roughing each other up pretty hard. Does that read better?

    Not surprising for jv after Towns tested positive...they were banging each other pretty hard.

    Philadelphia 76ers @ Memphis Grizzlies 1/16/21

    I missed last nights game, and I am a huge jv supporter because of the game he brings...but he is not doing the little things well, like missing too many bunnies, or cleaning up the boards like he can, and I agree he is dropping too deep more than last year. When he gets agitated or at important moments in a game he turns it up, but more inconsistent this year for sure. And he is getting into foul trouble which has never been an issue before. A couple of things that might be the cause. The injuries for sure has upset the chemistry, so when Jaren gets back I sense jv will hunker down. Jenkins decision to expand the bench and minutes during these injuries hasn’t helped, but I think it will narrow going forward. JV is playing too much team ball, at certain times he needs to bring his game at the forefront, he needs to be the guy when Ja or jaren or Dillon struggles. The raptors would often bring in jack sikma for a couple of weeks a season to remind jv of his strengths, work on certain needs, and build his confidence. It worked...do we know if the grizz have done that for certain players like Ja or jaren? Might be a good idea to bring someone in for a jv tuneup. .
  10. He’s playing really well, but he could be an elite 6 man...against the top 10 teams he has struggles matching up. That was last year, so maybe he something else in his game this season...but playing him 25 minutes is a really attractive option as a 6
  11. 8 offensive rebounds by jv, I haven’t seen that in a while
  12. So what’s the fix on that?
  13. We’re just backing up backing up, they don’t know their responsibilities out there...am I the only one seeing this?
