    Win totals (Over/Under) for 2019-20 season

    From what I was hearing on the radio the Grizz have hardest schedule remaining in the league. The Pels have the easiest schedule and Blazers have like the 4th easiest. Def a tough road yet to travel.

    Couldn't be happier to be wrong Ja is so much ahead of where I thought he'd be its amazing.

    Dion Waiters appreciation thread

    Meh, I would have left him inactive on the roster and tried to move him as an expiring next year but its no biggie either way.

    Why the trade with Miami is a bad trade.

    I have a hard time believing people are pooing on these trades. You got rid of a 17 million dollar anchor who was not popular with his teammates-using the term loosely as he never was part of the team...he just took money off their table that could have been an actual player. Replacing that clown was a great move, sure its a gamble on JW's health but its not a huge risk either. He can be cut next year. I was cool with Jae also but at the same time he could be frustrating as hell when he'd go cold and keep jacking. The trade was creative and has huge potential upside with limited risk. Thats what you have to do to get better. I trust the FO much more than I trust those of us out her banging on our keyboards.
  5. The guys is not short on arrogance. Proven it repeatedly. Hey, heads up Iggy- you are washed up. Go play and stfu.
  6. It does suck but pretty much what I expected. Grizz get s on by the league every chance it can happen.

    Dwight to Memphis (sources say)

    I think he was wondering if you were still active on the Grizz forums Dwight. Looking good for a ring this year, best of luck.

    ESPN Love? No, Zion will win ROY

    Maybe not but he sure seemed pretty hot about Harden slighting him in that post conference
  9. All i can say is WOW when i watch Ja.
  10. That's BS- Iggy could have shown up to play but he didn't want to. So he can sit until a deal that's good for the team comes around. Its on him not the Grizz.

    Win totals (Over/Under) for 2019-20 season

    I'm pretty excited about the progress for the team myself. But to keep it in perspective on Jan 9th last year the Grizz had 19 wins. Grizz have 16 wins today. The last couple of months the schedule is going to be rough. I'm not sayin the Grizz wont make the playoffs but there is a hell of a hill to climb yet.
  12. 100% with this. Very excited about those three youngsters.

    Grizzlies/NBA Free Agency Thread

    Don't get me wrong, he was not bad he just wasn't awesome either. Lets be real about it. 2011-12 was 23 wins 43 losses 2012-13 was 47 wins 35 losses 1013-14 was 51 wins 31 losses He gets let go and the teal has this record the 3 seasons following his tenure: 67W 15L 73W 9L 67W 15L Again, I'm not saying the guy was aweful...he was good but not anything to get all riled up about imo. When he coached the Warriors I usually felt good about our chances of winning **Hey but to be fair I would not at all say the guy was trash!!.
  14. I'm firmly in the play hard and coach to win category also. Don't change the plan for attempting to get better for the future (ie don't mortgage the future to get the 8 seed). Let the chips fall where they fall but don't change the course.

    Grizzlies/NBA Free Agency Thread

    Not trying to stir the pot but I thought MJ was kinda ho-hum as a coach also.
  16. I remember Buford slim. If you think things were bad when Mark Gasol left, you should have tried to follow the team at the Pyramid. I can remember watching games and thinking how do you even begin to build something that can actually compete with any of these squads. It was ROUGH.

    Has Ja Hit the Rookie Wall?

    Yep got ya, I just mean that by the time the Grizz picked he wasn't an option. He was already taken and traded by the time we got up at 4. So when we picked, he was not there. You can argue well the Grizz should have offered....xyz 123 and all that, but it wasn't an option when we picked.

    You do know he was picked before 4th right? Its not as if the Grizz passed on the guy.

    SI Grizz Beat Writer says I'm "negative"...

    Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. If you feel like the professional basketball team you follow is not putting forth the effort you would like to see..cool beans, its your opinion. If the writer feels like you are being harsh...aight den, their opinion. If Chip feels like the world is flat..well Chip that's just crazy but you do you IMO, they are ahead of schedule in terms of competitiveness and I hope we see a bright future for the youngsters. But I do agree its tough seeing another team score 145 points.
  20. I agree about Jae but Iggy can sit on it and spin.
  21. I think we have wonderful parts for building a great team. It is exceedingly difficult to win with first and 2nd year players making up the core of your team. They show flashes of great things...just need to develop in the league.
  22. Hah dang that looks like me trying to fly
