  1. I started looking at 21 and 22 prospects early this year when we were talking about taking or conveying. Everything I've seen on Green indicates he is a very high level prospect, more so than those you list above other than Zion.
  2. Man it is HARD for me not to want to keep the guys I like watching play. But I am a fan so its what I do...get attached and pull for my guys. But to look at it from a front office perspective, I think you can not be a fan. Otherwise, you make poor decisions Other than about 7 minutes of the 4th I was giddy. Then I was anxious. Next came despondence. Then anger. Then hope. And then elation. All in a bout a half hour lol. To be fair though, I'm not one of the blow it up to blow it up guys. If JV and Mike are on the team next year....I'd be happy. If we move people and get a good return that's ok too. Just please approach it with a plan and have the guts to stick to the plan is all I ask. The approach over the last few years (well since the jettison of ZBO and Tony) has been very difficult to watch. Sure, injuries...I get it. But it is pretty amazing HOW MANY people have worn a Grizz uniform the last few years. Really nuts.

    Do we have a playoff contending roster?

    Coaching matters. Organizational development matters.

    DO YOU WANT JV TO OPT IN?

    I said zilch about Gasol...nothing at all. ********************** I am not opposed to having him stay, though is defense is not good...he does rebound and put the ball in the basket at a good rate. You can live with that....it comes down to what you have him for, what someone is willing to give you, and what else you have available to fill similar roles. Honestly, that is my answer for pretty much any player in a Grizz uni right now.

    I am cool with keeping pretty much anyone (Parsons not included heh) but I'm also cool with moving any person on this roster to improve it. And I don't mean just trade player A for player B because you want to turn over the roster to give an appearance of attempting to improve. Use these assets to build a team you envision succeeding. If you cant envision a scenario where your trades make your team better now and moving forward then get a new job and let someone else run the show because you lack the ability to create a team.

  8. OK can we stop it with the this team is good narrative please? They have a few good pieces but in general there is not nearly enough talent and the construction itself is hodgepodge. I enjoy watching these guys play for the most part but lets please stop with the idea we can retool around this group and push for respectability again. Team of fun dudes dont get me wrong....but not the basis for a future.

    If we convey should we ReTool or ReBuild?

    It feels to me like trying to build around the guys we have on the squad now is repeating mistakes we have already lived through. I don't mean to just trade everyone willy nilly and grab late round draft picks.... My thought is more of an overall strategy. Determine who you are. Can you succeed as you are? If not...determine who you WILL be that can succeed. Commit to a plan and not just grab at any shiny object that takes your fancy this week. This turning over the roster 3 or 4 times in a couple of years seems to indicate we have no plan and as such have not ability to commit to a path that will lead to success. It all starts at the top.

    IMO the team playing better is pyrite. We should not get caught up in that...the goal should still be to turn this team into assets and initiate a genuine rebuild while conveying the pick THIS year.
  11. I don't see why he would opt in unless he just doesn't think he can get a multi year deal done at a rate he wants. I mean, would YOU chose to be here if you didn't have to be to play basketball right now? You'd have to be some kind of bear lover or sadist.

    New plan moving forward...

    Hah I was wondering if I was the only one that was like wtf on that one
  13. **** hate i missed all the fun in the game thread last night You guys are a hoot, thank you for keeping it fun when this train wreck is tumbling off the tracks. For my 2 copper pieces; I think Bruno is better than his box score on most nights. I honestly think with some serious court time the guy has a chance o be a real impact maker for the team. I am also impressed with JV- I just dont think we are going to resign him (he is going to get $$$ paid). Its tough to get all wound up about these guys...what maybe 2 of them will be in the plans past another year? This team has turned over so many players in the last few years even from game one till now...its just hard to get all excited about it with new faces all over the place, losses stacking up, and crap in the cupboard for moving forward. BUUUUT, that is part of it I guess. Here's to hoping for the future
