oneal-sama replied to PutARingOnIt#GrizzFan's topic in Grizzlies Team TalkI think people's memories are short. I bet most don't remember the top draft picks that we did take. And how did those guys work out. Do you really trust this franchise to take the right pic even if you do have the top five? Look at the grizzlies lottery years. We could be the 76ers franchise. Another person on these boards mentioned the wolves; they drafted well but still were terrible. It wasn't until a coaching and personnel change with trades turned them around. I don't care about or trust draft pics. Why would you want to indoctrinate a young mind into a culture of losing? It's A RARE talent that can individually turn a franchise around almost single handedly. You want a high draft pick/young phenom? Great. Trade for him. But don't tank to get him. Winning and a winning culture brings talent to you more easily than a losing one.
