    Marc Gasol re-appreciation thread

    Didn't miss a single shot from the field or turn it over even once during his 2nd stint with us.

    Marc Gasol traded to Grizzlies . . .

    And they sent cash, so probably defrayed some of that $2.7m too.

    NBA coach rankings - TJ #15

    Older article (and admit I haven't read it fully), but seems to at least attempt to answer your question: https://grantland.com/the-triangle/the-art-of-coaching-adjustments-in-the-nba-playoffs/ Example they first use is inserting JJ Barea into the Finals line-up in 2011.

    Roster/ Lineups Forecast

    Bane already started 25% of the games he played during his rookie year 🤡
  5. He didn't really get exposed tbh - he had an awful last 2 games of the series, but the first 3 games he was pretty much in line with his RS efficiency and he was actually rebounding at a far higher rate plus averaging an unreal 4 steals a game. This is the danger of extrapolating out of small sample sizes.

    Grizzlies/NBA trade deadline 2021 and beyond

    https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2946349-nba-draft-week-brings-urgency-to-trade-talks-latest-ben-simmons-buzz ^think this was a day before the trade was actually announced (of course, final trade included JV going to them and us getting a 1st back/moving up in 2nd round).

    Grizzlies/NBA trade deadline 2021 and beyond

    Heck, even the Bledsoe + 10 for 17 framework was discussed prior to that deal going through. I don't think it's rare at all to hear about the general parameters or broad strokes of trades before they actually go through.
  8. That's a reeeeeal shaky limb you're out there on DB had the 13th best 3% in the league last year and ZW has never shown the ability to consistently hit 3s (not in high school, not in college, certainly not in Summer League) - I will Venmo you $20 if Ziaire shoots more than 35% from three6 on more than 2 attempts a game. You can save this post, I'm a man of my word!

    Might be instance of trying to gauge interest at his peak; have a hard time seeing him replicate (or even get close) to what he did in the Jazz series over the course of an entire season, so worth shooting your shot if you think he can be part of a package that nets an All-Star level player.
  10. He had that one good Summer League game where he looked like a (Summer League roster) rotation player!

    Jaren Jackson the X factor

    25 and 7 would make him a superstar - there are only 6 players in the NBA last year that averaged those numbers: Joel Embiid Giannis Antetokounmpo Luka Doncic Zion Williamson Jayson Tatum Nikola Jokic Even if you expand to 20 and 7, there were still only 5 additional players to meet that criteria (all are All-Stars, some multiple time all-stars): Julius Randle Nikola Vucevic Russell Westbrook Pascal Siakam Domatas Sabonis

    Jaren Jackson the X factor

    Honestly, if he played more minutes and is able to stay healthy, Robert Williams III might be closest from a stylistic/body type comparison to Rodman.

    Jaren Jackson the X factor

    Maybe he can steal X's floater or BC's pogo stick shot put.

    Grizzlies/NBA trade deadline 2021 and beyond

    So I think we have our parameters now for what a JJJ extension this offseason would look like: Collins at the high end where he got $25m/yr and Markkanen at the low end where he got $16.75m/yr. Crazy that Markkanen ended up in this situation - if you'd have looked at him after his 2nd year in the league, I think a lot of people would've viewed him as someone who was trending towards somethign close to the max - was putting up 19 and 9 with good shooting percentages.

    Interesting Markkanen ended up at 4/$67 million. And weird fit with that roster...think he'd get roasted as a SF on the defensive end.
  16. Bobby Portis is a recent example of this

    Patrick Beverly Appreciation Thread

    Every single one of his tweets while he was a Grizzlies player embodied the Grit N Grind spirit ❤️

    The Ziaire Williams Guide

    Just to temper expectations a bit, that'd be more points and assists than either Paul George or Kawhi Leonard had in their rookie seasons. I think he'll end up around 6-7 pts, 3 rbs, 1 asst, 1 stl.

    In addition to everything you said, the problem with Simmons is not just that he doesn't take 3s, but that he doesn't even take shots past 5 feet out. Compare these two shooting charts - these two guys are nothing alike in terms of spacing. https://www.statmuse.com/nba/ask/scottie-pippen-shot-chart https://www.statmuse.com/nba/ask/ben-simmons-2021-shot-chart

    Agreed - I love what Dillon gave us during the end of season stretch and playoffs, but he’s had hot streaks before and then reverted to Bad Dillon shortly thereafter. I think at his current contract, he’s very valuable though, so not sure what the pool of available upgrades even looks like.

    No Love for Steven Adams???

    The USA also promptly blew them out by 27 points 😂

    No Love for Steven Adams???

    That’d be two technicals, ejection and 5-game suspension for taunting in the NBA.
