    Around the NBA - 2022-23 Season

    Sometimes I'm amazed that NBA teams don't have better last second plays. I've seen college and HS execute better end of game after a basket then NBA teams do when they don't have the timeout. I think in watching that play, I would have tried to get it to Poole on the run as him shooting a half court shot is still better than this turd.

    Unless Adams can make free throws, he can't consistently be in a closing lineup. I guess it also depends on the matchup.

    More like we are close to the next guy going down. The playoffs will be decided by the healthiest team.

    Revisiting this again now... Still no.

    Great though win. The Heat seemed destined for play-in, maybe. They aren't the most healthy team and they didn't exactly play inspired. Although.. In their defense, they won't be the first NBA team to play uninspired ball against a team that is missing stars.

    Dillon and Roddy a combined 1 for 11 from 3 (9%).

    I didn't intentionally leave anyone out, nor did I do a completely comprehensive list, I guess, but they had to play for the Grizzlies. It's kinda sad they only played Seth Curry 4 minutes, but Seth was a different level player back then and the Grizzlies were playing for the now, not necessarily the future. Also left off James Johnson, I see.

    How Long until Desmond, Ja and Ziaire Return

    Hopefully. Would not mind him getting some Hustle games in, and that may have been the original plan before all of these other injuries. He is practicing with Hustle today.

    If we're wanting former Grizzlies PGs that are being shopped around, I would take Conley over Lowry. I would rather have Tyus over Lowry if they were the same price. This broken down version of Kyle Lowry is not good on a night in and night out version, plus I hate his offensive game of just falling into people and drawing a foul. The Heat know he's not good right now and they definitely have a few bad contracts right now. I may even choose Justise over Lowry, and that's not intended as a compliment to JW. If playing the fun game of choosing what former Grizzlies players would I want, I'm not sure he's in my top 10. (Melton, Yuta, Kyle, Jonas, Jevon Carter, Grayson, Conley, Seth Curry, Jae Crowder, Justin Holiday, Rudy Gay, Justise Winslow, Lowry, Gorgui Dieng, JaM Green)

    Mentioned this in another thread, but how much has ZW been doing in practice?
  11. There is this injury related news
  12. Yeah, he can't be in these last possessions. Put in BC
  13. Adams is lucky he wasn't rejected for touching a ref.
  14. i feel like the one benefit to these injuries is the forced development of several young players. It is unfortunate that Ziaire isn't able to be part of this time with Bane out. When playing the Nets the other night it reminded me of playing those Spurs teams when Pop would sit Tim, Manu and Parker, and those bench players got extended playing time (although they would lose). Aldama, Jake, Roddy, Konchar and even Chandler have probably picked up (combined) 750 minutes of playing time by now that they wouldn't have had if JJJ, Bane, Brooks, Ziaire and Ja been healthy all season. It's a long season, followed by a lengthy post-season (hopefully). These November & December minutes mean more for those youngsters, but it would be great to start getting Ziaire in there.

    Former Grizzlies interviewed by former Grind City Media Yuta was with the team in the bubble. After Grizzlies chose to not offer him another 2-way, he was a lowly Exhibit 10 guy with the Raptors who then converted him to another two-way deal. The Grizzlies chose Jontay Porter, Sean McDermott, and Killian Tillie over Yuta. He's had quite a journey
