    Cousins injury

    In the Howard trade thread, I felt the best plan was to take him to training camp, let him compete for playing time, and cut him if he was an attitude problem. Many wanted to just cut him so as to not have him be a negative influence on the youngsters.

    Bests in Grizzlies History

    Most fun meaningless regular season game featuring Tony and none of the regular characters. During Dave's last year with the team limping backwards into the playoffs, Tony Allen, JaM, Lance Stephenson, Vince Carter, Mario Chalmers and 3 other guys* go into Cleveland and took down the future NBA champ Cleveland Cavaliers. It was the last hurrah of a team that you knew, even if they made the playoffs, was doomed to a quick and ugly exit, which happened as everyone that year seemed to get injured. But for 1 night, it was all heart. *Hollins, Martin, and PJ Hairston Edited to add: After playing over 40 minutes that night, Chalmers would blow achilles in the next game vs Boston.

    Grizzlies/NBA Free Agency Thread

    I like Joakim Noah, and I"m glad he played here this year. I don't expect him to return, but I like what he had to say to Devin Booker when Booker was complaining about getting a double team I'm trying to see who else is there: Ben Simmons...and I can't tell

    Cousins injury

    He's an asset that the team has been shopping around probably since the trade. Teams either don't want him or don't/can't trade for him. I don't believe the Lakers can even trade for him. Grizzlies have to waive 2-3 more guys. It is cheaper for them to waive Howard than either Hill or Plumlee. And one or both of them might be gone anyways.

    Cousins injury

    Honestly, I don't see how the Lakers have anything they can do to match up salaries. Even the guys they just signed can't be traded until December. Even if they wanted to trade Cousins so the Grizzlies could waive a smaller contract they couldn't do it. I would guess that the Grizzlies will still waive Howard, but I don't understand why the Lakers wanted to meet with him. Maybe the Lakers are trying to figure whether to wait on him or sign a Zeller or Noah. Maybe meeting with Howard will get a smaller buyout number? That doesn't really make sense either.
  6. So with a younger team and Ja Morant, are fans more interested in going to pre-season games or not really? I've gone to a few in the past because their good to take the kids to because you can leave at half, but I'm not sure about going down this year for any of them.

    I would sign Joakim Noah before trading for Howard if I was a team in playoff race. Maybe Noah has no interest in playing this year, or at least not with LeBron. Or maybe vice versa.

    Going to Breakers Grizz game!

    Some tickets are available now on ticketmaster resale. Just be aware that some, but not all, are above face value.
  9. Would using a pen or pencil count as a way to rewind? Also, flip cassette over and FF?
  10. So Grizzlies are going with a Fast Forward & Throwback theme this year. So this is all right
  11. (Humble brag alert...someone's traveling) Here's your date December 9 at Golden State 11 at Phoenix March 6 at Dallas 7 vs. Atlanta 10 vs. Orlando 12 at Portland
  12. Solid job by the Memphis Grizzlies to link to their schedule, only to have it land on a dead page. Keep playing things close to the vest guys.
  13. As mentioned earlier, Conley returns 11/15 on an ESPN game and then again 11/29. The team plays there 12/7 and 3/14. Gasol doesn't come until 3/28, and then the teams turn around and play again in Toronto on 3/30. WC teams that visit only once: Clippers & Blazers, I think. Link to home schedule:
  14. Thanks NBA, for putting 10 home games in November, when not a ton of people are tuned into the NBA, and giving the team only 4 home games in February.

    Throwback Vancouver Uniforms

    The Titans did wear the Oilers throwbacks in the past, and a whole lot of people in Houston were not fans. I think the Texans should be able to wear the uniform. I understand the Bud Adams move, etc, and I'm not sure what is the best rule for it.
