    Where Should Conley Be Traded?

    Lol, nobody's doing that deal. You may as well say you don't want to dea.

    OT: Faragi Phillips

    From some of his posts it sounded like he still lives in Spain. I hope he comes back. He seems more knowlegeable about the CBA rules than anyone on the boards, and he's just a great forum member.

    High school

    Prepare yourself for a successful life. Find something profitable that you enjoy doing, or a vocation you find enjoyable or interesting, and be very good at it. Or you could prepare for college. Life can be hard, but it can be fun too. You have to be ready for it! As for the coach... I don't have a clue. I hope he's good.

    You sort of contradicted yourself there. MIA, CHI, ORL "realistic playoff shot"? I ain't seeing it, unless you mean a shot at a first round sweep of their teams.

    why the 3 year plan worked

    Actually Tony's big break was because of Rudy mostly, not OJ or Xavier. Tony had about ten games better than 20 minutes scattered through the first part of the season. OJ and Zach were benched early in the season when he and Randolph missed a team pregame shoot-around or something. Randolph moved back to the starting lineup, but OJ became sort of the sixthman (and later served a ten game drug suspension) and Xavier was inserted as starter. After Xavier went down Hollins experimented a little bit with spot starts from OJ, Sam Young, and TA before settling on Sam as the starter, around which time the team began to gel. During this time the Grizzlies went through a 12-3 stretch with the starters being primarily Marc, Zach. Rudy, Sam, and Mike. But there was one game during this stretch, an away game at OKC. Rudy was not with the team for personal reasons, and TA was inserted into the starting lineup. Needless to say, TA played 40 minutes and scored 27 points, with 4 boards, 5 steals, and 3 blocks in the road win against the three MVP team, and history was made. This was THE Grit 'n' Grind game when TA used the phrase in the postgame interview. After that game TA got more minutes, but still came off the bench up until Rudy was injured by Evan Turner in the Philly game. After that game TA became the permanent starter. So you see, while OJ's benching and Xavier's injury were contributing factors, it was really no Rudy that got TA his break. Just a little Grizzlies history for those who forgot how it went down.

    fanboyslim seems to have disappeared. I hope it's just a summer break or something, and I hope it has nothing to do with Marc being traded.

    We don't need a gimmick. We need an identity. You don't plan your identity. It's a natural result of players gaining chemistry on the floor together. Once you have achieved that, then you can try to find other pieces to complement them.

    A lot of difference between Bradley Beal and Bam Adebayo.

    Roster Moves

    If I were CHI I would make an offer to Delon Wright and keep my #7 before trading it for Ball.

    Would you give the #7 for Lonzo?

    All Grizz;ies players are bums on the forum except the flavors of the day. Then they slowly work their way to bum status. I figure by the time Jaren is starting to flourish posters will start saying to trade him while his value is high.

    Those guys aren't immortal. They can be taken down. Everyone thought the Shaq/Kobe Lakers were going to keep winning too, but then Big Ben Wallace and the Pistons came along.

    Have y'all met Sam....

    You can't follow the Bucks' blueprint without having the Bucks' players and the Bucks' coach. We have to make our own blueprint and our own identity. I'm not saying we need Sam. I really don't know. I just hope we can get a guy with a plan, who can teach/develop, commands players' respect, and motivates. An effective system would be nice too. How do you get all that? IDK, but I don't think it necessarily has to be a vet.
