    Roster Moves

    With you man. Doing "stuff" so you can say you did "stuff" doesn't cut it. Make it right or don't do it.

    Roster Moves

    Only way we get a pick for Gasol is if we take on some dumb contract to bail out the team trying to move off of it. IMO adding a player for ~ 25 mill per year along with a (just for example) number 20 pick...that is not going to do much to help us. I think best bet is you get a couple players back who are rotational guys...maybe a 2nd round thrown in for s & g's.
  3. Pretty wild, just got blown out by the Pels at home on national TV....without the brow. I'd hate to have to speak to media after that debacle.
  4. Bad thing is we have a couple of years of doing the right thing before this team can start not sucking out loud. There is no easy way or fast way to fix this beyond just some bizarre stroke of luck. Going to be some crappy ball in Memphis for a while.

    Time to trade Marc

    FBS this is where I am on it also. 100% agree with you on this.

    Time to trade Marc

    I'm with you here man. Honestly, it looks like we are just stuck in limbo for a couple of years before there is any hope at all of starting to crawl back up. And then we will NOT BE ABLE to blow draft after draft. The only hope is they can start drafting like they have some semblance of a clue toward what they are doing. And even then it will be after years of drudgery.

    Season win total predictions???

    I'm going to hang tight at 34. I think we'll pick up some wins later in the season. I dont THINK we'll see a front office tank run this season....if they do then who knows at that stage

    Our owed first rounder is now a sunk cost

    What do Hasheem Thabeet, DeMarre Carroll, Sam Young, Xavier Henry, Dominque Jones, Greivis Vasquez, Josh Selby, Tony Wroten, Jamaal Franklin, Janis Timma, Jordan Adams, Jarell Martin, Wade Baldwin and Wang Zhelin have in common?
  9. Well check that, now he has hit more shots than the starting 5.
  10. Omri Caspi has hit as many shots as our starting 5 combined with 3 mins left in the 1st half. Wert thu.
  11. Our starters are shooting something like 4 of 20...

    2019 NBA DRAFT

    Yep you said it. I think we may be able to move Marc or maybe he wont sign the player option this off season. So I think Marc is doable for a tank starting next season. Mike I think is going to be with us in the tank I think though, his contract is tough for a dude his age and size. Plus, we will have to spend money on the team even when tanking and he is a good spot to dump 90 mill lol. We have some gnarly contracts for players who are far under-producing for their money which makes it VERY difficult to turn those contracts into anything other than more bad contracts. If we can work a trade for Marc and Chandler where we get something decent and do not saddle ourselves with even more contracts for bad players...that would be amazing. What I'm afraid of though, is that folks are going to look to us to give up assets to take those contracts (which we don't have) or take their bum contracts back in the trade. That doesn't really help us IMO. If we did that we are still stuck with bad contracts and no picks. It doesn't matter which way you stack it...when you get down to the actual gritty details of any idea we propose there is not an answer that makes you happy about Grizz position. All these idiotic moves over the years are catching up quickly and IMO it WILL be ugly. Very ugly before it starts to turn. And I have zero faith in this front office to make the decisions that will allow this to turn into a success in the future.

    2019 NBA DRAFT

    I still hope we do not have a pick this draft. If we are not picking 1 or 2 I would be glad with it going away so we can get serious about a rebuild. Cant rebuild with no assets
  14. True that. Mike still seems engaged mostly....but I've seen multiple times this year where Marc just looks like he is totally out of it. I'm fine with busting your butt and falling short, but that's not what we have been seeing at all.
  15. I hate to say it because I'm sure as hell tired of seeing the coaching carousel here...but JB is losing on a consistent bases in the coaching matchups.

    Joakim Noah

    Its hard to read a lot into that...but honestly, Marc didn't seem to happy with Noah.

    2019 NBA DRAFT

    I don't see how we can make it to the bottom. We already have 11 more wins than the bottom. Even if we commit to the tank those scrubs probably wont catch us. Who are we going to send out there night in and night out that will not produce any wins for the rest of the year?
  19. It is pretty telling that we, as a fan base, are extremely excited and proud that we drafted a player who could be in a rotation. Most places that would be the expectation but we are just happy to have hope about it.
  20. Something I noticed last night was there were some differences in how we played defense at the top. The bigs were out further than we have been seeing them. I hope that helps eliminate the gaping holes that are being cut in our initial defensive actions which result in 2 passes from an open 3 pointer. It looked to me like the guys would come out playing hard early but then adjustments would be made to how we are defending and we would not answer the adjustments. That was leading to a lot of easy 3 point baskets and the guys confidence eroded and the team went to crap. Kinda funny how we keep saying "what the hell is wrong with the Grizz in the 3rd". Well, watch what is happening in those games. Adjustments are being made and the Grizz are not handling them well neither on the court or between their ears. Oh sorry I mean to say I 100% agree with you KBM- got to be aggressive!

    Is It Time to Embrace Another Tank?

    The only way I can see a tank situation working is if you can indeed move Marc and Mike. If you can make that happen I'm all in. If we are stuck on Marc, Mike, and Chandler for 2 more season AND we have to give a pick to Boston? Lets get that done this season while we are still on these dumb contracts. I'd hate to break up a real tank in order to pass on a top pick in the draft. I mean, if we get the 1st pick on 2021 and give that to Boston I may not be able to take it.
  22. Whew what a stinker of a season. Calkins bummed me out on the drive home yesterday when it sunk in. Playoffs...not a likely goal at this stage. So our GOAL is to be bad enough to be 9th from the bottom and convey the pick to Boston (I agree, I wanted a little playoff run and convey it but #1 goal is to get that pick off the table and then rebuild). So the best case scenario is a season where we miss the playoffs and have no pick. LoL this year sucks.

    Time to trade Marc

    I'm totally down with trading Gasol also. It seems pretty obvious he has quit again on the team. I'm sick of that garbage. He can go sit with Cancun for all I care.
  24. Yep it is not looking good.
