    They can't really do it until they figure out what's going on with the 2019-2020 regular season. Even if they go the way of a play-in tournament for the last playoff seeds, they'd then have to wait for the results of such tournament as whoever doesn't make it in then gets put into the draft lottery.
  2. I'd recommend Mr. Robot. First 3 seasons are all available on Amazon Prime Video and I genuinely think it was one of the best, most underrated shows of the 2010s. It didn't get as much acclaim due to being on USA Network, but the directing and story are genius.
  3. Thanks, Bna - this is crucial to keep reminding ourselves. Also note that if we don't flatten the curve, the mortality rate will go up as there won't be enough hospital beds or ventilators. Healthcare professionals will have to start making decisions about who gets treatment in this scenario. It is imperative that we follow the social distancing guidelines and flatten the curve. The spread of this virus might be inevitable, but if we can slow the spread over a longer period of time we'll have a far better opportunity to manage it and lessen the impact than if we hit the peak soon with less immediate action.

    Pera Steps Up

    Excellent and makes me proud to be a Grizzlies fan. Makes the New Orleans ownership’s stance even more puzzling. They’re letting a 19-yr old kid be the grown up and be the class act while the actual billionaire owner does...nothing?
  5. There's a lot of conflicting information out there, but I'd encourage everyone to read this article. We've mostly been comfortable thinking that if you're young and healthy, you'll only get a mild form of COVID-19. But "mild" doesn't mean what we typically think of: "The best possible monitoring and communication will nonetheless prove vital to determining who needs hospital beds in the midst of a rapidly spreading, temperamental disease. Without it, to simply tell people to “stay at home if you’re sick” will be inadequate. Most cases of COVID-19 are reportedly “mild,” but that term can be misleading. As the World Health Organization adviser Bruce Aylward clarified last week, a “mild” case of COVID-19 is not equivalent to a mild cold. Expect it to be much worse: fever and coughing, sometimes pneumonia—anything short of requiring oxygen. “Severe” cases require supplemental oxygen, sometimes via a breathing tube and a ventilator. “Critical” cases involve “respiratory failure or multi-organ failure.” https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2020/03/where-do-you-go-if-you-get-coronavirus/607759/ If you can at all work from home, you probably should be at this point. My heart goes out to those at greatest risk and those who can't afford to work from home.

    Will Coronavirus Affect the 2020-21 Salary Cap?

    Have to imagine it does, unless they’re able to still play the remaining games out later (though the way this is going, it doesn’t seem they will/should).
  7. That was the last “easy” game before the 17-game stretch I’ve been worried about. Don’t think we have enough of a cushion to overcome the schedule and we’ll likely be overtaken, but even having meaningful games down the stretch will be valuable to the young guys.
  8. Lol, it is kind of insane how often Josh looks for Konchar on the lobs. Guess it’s that GLeague chemistry...though they’re realizing what worked down there won’t work up here.

    Grizzlies sign Jontay Porter

    There's plenty of room for everyone. From the Vancouver loyalists to the soon-to-be-formed lilJontayPorter11 account.

    Grizzlies sign Jontay Porter

    Think the sister had injuries too.
  11. I think if we miss the playoffs, it'll be more than one of these teams that passes us. We're either going to surprise people (and surprise me too!) by playing well during this tough end-of-season stretch and comfortably make the playoffs or we're going to totally collapse and have possibly Sacramento, New Orleans and Portland all pass us.
  12. Thanks! And thanks. So I guess fairly inconsequential, since it'd be a shock if they sign him for next season.
  13. To those that are more well-versed in the CBA intricacies than me, what's the effect on our cap if Waiters signs with the Lakers?
  14. She's great. Marv has been kind of a disaster in his later years. Always enjoy Kevin Harlan simply because he has a great announcer voice.

    The official Hot take thread

    There was a game towards the middle of December (can't remember which one it was) where I tried to zero in just on JJJ's rebounding for each possession. What I kept noticing was how far away from the basket he was when the ball hit the rim. When he was already close to the basket or had just contested the shot, he did do a decent job of boxing out (though he still got outworked on some possessions), but the larger issue seemed to be that he just wasn't even in the vicinity of the basket.
