  1. Our division is once again very tough and very competitive. Everyone knows Houston and SA. Dallas will be good next year (if no injuries and KP can avoid getting beaten up) and now NO and if we don't screw up this pick (please don't pick Hasheem Thabeet 2.0), we have a chance to be very exciting to say the least. I'm not a homer...I know we are a few years and some additional luck from being really competitive but dang, I am excited about this season more than I have been in years. Our division is stupid good..... Go Griz

    Predict #2 Pick

    Ja...no hesitation. I can see Zion being on his way out of NO after is rookie contract. Ja seems to be the type of guy who could and would stay with us for years. He is young and electric. It is exciting to be a griz fan again this morning. Go griz
  3. http://www.theplayerstribune.com/mike-conley-2016-memphis-grizzlies-nba-free-agency/ A really good read. Glad mike took the time to write it. Personally I would love to hear more TA stories. He may be getting older but is still the heart of the team. I forgot about Green's "extra" physically on Mike. I still think the Adams kick and James groin slap were intentional and part of the way he plays. Go Grizz

    How Can One Team Be This Bad At Drafting?

    X that is an interesting argument...about noah with pau...and to think we had kyle lowry at the time...he was showing flashes of being a great player (and we did draft him by the way)...i remember sitting in fedex for the draft night and watching his face when we drafted mike...you could read it all over his face he knew his time in memphis was done... mike has been good...but what IF we had kept kyle and drafter noah go grizz

  11. i am curious why so many think that OKC is better than us...as i recall, over the last 5 years our games with them have been on par...even when both teams are healthy the games are always close yet so many people want to rank them ahead of us... thoughts...

    Marc Back In Fold For 5 Years 108 Mil.

    could it be as simple as he is willing to take less money if we can sign someone else?...if we cant, then he takes his max...if we can get another shooter or mo williams or someone else, then he may take less to get us under the cap...could it be that simple... i thought i read that pera was back in the states...isnt wallace also back....why would they be back if it were still up in the air... and its not like there is anywhere else for him to to...except the Clipps...and i dont see that happening... go grizz

    Motivation For Game 4 Bomani Jones

    the last thing i ever want to do is to take up for B.jones...so i wont...but, it was not too long ago that the UofM was selling out every game...way more folks were following the tigers than the grizz...i have been a season ticket holder for 14 years...many of them were accompanied with empty seats all over the place...even the first round playoffs werent true sellouts till the end...BUT the turn around really did happen when ZBO showed up...and this is not the same zbo that was in portland, ny and la...he said it best after bouncing the spurs a few years ago...this is a blue collar town and he is a blue collar guy...nothing has ever been given to the people of memphis and nothing has ever been given to zach... memphis v. errrrbody....who cares what "they" say or think... go grizz
  14. So much has been said about how great this GSW team is...but i was thinking, are they REALLY that much better than the OKC teams we have battled over the last few years? KD, Russ, Serge, even Perk and their bench...we didnt always beat them but those playoff series were always classics...and for us to come into this series and no one but us gave us a chance... do you even think this gsw team could have beaten okc if they had been healthy?...just wondering go grizz

    Grizzlies & Warriors - 5/9/2015

    mic or no mic, TA is ALWAYS talking...thats just who he is...i dont think he played it up the other night just because he was wearing a mic...he does it every game...couple of years ago he shuts down Irving on the last play of the game when we were playing a close on in cleveland and he yells "first team all defense, bitc#"...he has always been this way...its just who he is and i agree with some of the other posters...i believe he motivates himself this way...TA dose not play it up for the camera...just like him walking into the circle of kids dancing the other night...he was just focused in go grizz

    Grizzlies & Bulls - 12/19/2014

    calkins just said that rose did not make the trip... no word on gibson... my fear if fatigue... go grizz
  18. i have always like brandan wright...his length...he is smart...usually gives zach fits... if the $ works to get him and green i would have go along with letting KK go... i think we all know there is no way we can re-sign him...the guy wants to start and would start for almost any other team...especially in the east...maybe that work for clevland and boston... BUT man i hate to mess with what is working right now...thats why i have to give it to cuban...the guy takes the calculated risks... go grizz

    What The Warriors Taught Us

    offense really got in the mud late...when TA and Prince are out there together, we do struggle... we kept going to marc...have to give it to green...he really played hard against him down low...nothing came easy for marc down low... a few time late he tried to pass and i wished he would have just shot the ball... when they did double him on the high post, we had too many folk standing around...i love it when TA slashes BUT dang it tony, you have to finish...too many missed layups when we could have put this game away... Mo played like Mo...i do miss him (sometimes)...the guys can make that 15 ft jump shot...will take a charge...blocks shots... VC really helped us but almost shot us out of it...much like TA...ill take the good with the bad... go grizz

    Grizzlies @ Spurs - 12/17/2014

    the win last night was big...i say we "rest" tonight...marc looked like he took a knee to the thigh and was favoring the leg some...rest marc, zach and mike...let the dogs out and let em run... win friday, sunday and monday... just my opinion...
  21. someone mentioned making them take prince...i have to say that in limited mins...i really like what prince does give us...that length in small spurts on defense...deng was too big for clee and TA was on wade...prince i thought was just what we needed yesterday to make it a little more difficult on wade...wade just destroyed qpon.... once in 10 games q will show up...we need more than that... go grizz

    Grizzlies @ Kings - 11/30/2014

    well he sure tried to put his mark on the game yesterday...he was SOOO out of position to call an offensive foul on TA on the layup against rudy...its like it was some type of make up call...just awful...just typical... go grizz
