    I suppose, since we don't yet have any reassurance that we COULD beat them. I guess we'll see.

    The Last Dance....Also, Who's The Greatest?

    One would expect that after all the other great centers had retired or were approaching retirement.

    Grizzlies/NBA Free Agency Thread

    I like what Dieng has given us, and he is younger, but I feel like Noah had a bigger effect on the game. Maybe it was just his crazy, never quit, "I'm gonna get under your skin", strong competitive spirit, but whatever it was he earned my respect.

    The Last Dance....Also, Who's The Greatest?

    He may, if he can stay healthy, but you have to wonder if the high mark might not be a lot higher if Lew Alcindor came right out of high school like LeBron instead of playing four years of college ball. Why do people put Shaq over Olajuwon? Hakeem did everything better except score, and he was nearly Shaq's equal at that, despite the fact that he never had a Penny, Kobe, or Dwyane playing with him to help take off the pressure. Hakeem was a far better defensive player too being the all-time leader in blocked shots as well as the only big man in the top ten in career steals. Olajuwon carried his team to a championship when the next best scorer on his team was a 14ppg Otis Thorpe. I put him right behind Kareem and Wilt.

    He hit his career high in threes that game. Maybe Josh Jackson's size might bother him? Otherwise I'd rather see Dillon on him because he can play physical with him. Might have to try all three.

    That's what happens when key players are out.
  7. Your mother in law couldn't defend, or shoot threes at over 35%, or shoot 80% from the free throw line either I'll bet. No, Ennis was not a superstar, but he is a basketball player good enough to fill out a roster as a decent bench player. Just because some overly hopeful, zealous fan got excited doesn't mean anything. His assessment was likely based on the numbers he put up in the D-League and a brief appearance in the bigs. We can't act like no one else on these boards gets overly excited over some young players. There were a good number of posters on these boards excited over Josh Jackson's G-League stint. He likely will not be a superstar either, but may turn out to be a decent player off the bench or even a starter. The problem with Ennis was that he was not a scorer and we needed a scorer, but he wasn't a bum either. He has still been good enough that coaches have played him in close to 300 more games than Wade Baldwin.
  8. Wrong again! You're getting as bad as KBM at attributing things to the wrong people.

    What is fair?

    Exactly. The season is what it is. Too bad for the Pelicans that Zion wasn't there for them due to injury. It happens frequently in the league. They don't need any play-in tournaments. That's just fixing things because they don't like how things turned out. If the entire season cannot be finished by EVERY team in the league, then the fair thing is go with current results.

    Would you rather?

    Sure hope you're right.

    All-Time Grizzlies Lineup

    What? No Shareef Abdur-Rahim? 1st in PPG, 6th in PTS, 4th in REB, 8th in AST, 7th in STL, and 6th in BLK

    All-Time Grizzlies Lineup

    Yeah, you're probably right, though some of his best statistical seasons were in Memphis, and he played more games in a Grizzlies uniform. It's the championships that will do it though, as far as being portrayed as a Laker goes. I once read where Pau was one of an elite group of only about five or six players who reached the plateau of over 20,000 points, over 10,000 rebounds, over 3,500 assists, and over 1,500 blocked shots in all four of those categories. Other than Pau, the only others I have found are Abdul-Jabbar, Erving, Duncan, and Garnett. That's some pretty good company. Not even Shaq, Robinson, Olajuwon, Russell, Ewing, Barkley, Nowitzski, or either of the Malones equaled that feat. I suspect that Wilt Chamberlain did, but they didn't keep stats on blocks in his day.

    Pau will be a HoFer. After that Zbo might have the best chance, but I think he'll be passed over like other very good players like Buck Williams and Tom Chambers. Hopefully some of our new blood will make it.
  14. Good read @I❤️JV. Jonas has done an excellent job. Glad he's with us.

    What is fair?

    "A" is the fair answer. You don't doctor up the outcome when the season stops. The season has stopped. How many teams clinched before they stopped? Why don't they have to keep going? Why do we get singled out? There is only one reason. They want Zion. What are you gonna do the next time a popular star gets injured in an 82 game season? You want to make extra rules to give his team a shot? Why don't we just have a fan vote to see which teams make it just like they do for All-Star Game starters? I'll tell you why, because it would totally defeat any purpose in competing and the league would be just like WWE. If they start trying to manipulate to get their desired results, I'm through after more than 50 years of NBA basketball.
