    I'm getting a little concerned about the Grizz

    Is not running to win a championship, moves are being made so that a championship is not expected, or even the playoffs, thus they can say that we are BUILDING to a "sustained success", rather than putting the stamp of their approval and making moves to make a run at it. They know that if they make a run at a championship and have those expectations and it doesn't work out, they are getting fired. Masri from Toronto, if he didn't win a championship this year or if he didn't keep kawhi, he would have been fired, but he had the balls to make those moves. Even Jason Levien, when he made that dumb move trading rudy, got fired for it. I want front office guys that are willing to make bold moves, and this front office isn't it. In fact, they made it a mandate to not even mention the word championship in the press conference, because they know once the owner has expectations, they better deliver or they will be fired. Period.

    Kareem was 32 when the lakers drafted Magic. The celtics traded the #1 overall pick for a 27 year old robert parish and #3 pick in the draft. The way to win a championship is to get vets around your young stars as soon as possible. The grizzlies let mike go, which was a major mistake. Now they truly will be bad. The difference is that Red Arubach wasn't worried about his job security. The absolutely only reason jason wexler and company did this is because they can field a bad team and still keep their jobs. If they would have kept mike and he would have gotten hurt or something, they'd be gone. This team isn't running itself like they want to win a championship, they are being run by people hoping to keep their jobs. Period.

    The Brandon Clarke thread

    I don't know why, you guys bellyached and moaned about Mike Conley's contract until he was traded. I mean constantly. It's pretty clear though that depending on how they use that 25 million and what pick they actually get in the future will have to be the value in this trade because right now there is no value in it.

    The Brandon Clarke thread

    If he doesn't come in ballin out, he's a bust. That's pretty much it. If Taylor Jenkins puts him on the bench and doesn't give him rotation minutes, he's a bust. At 23, he should be ready to go immediately. Also, if you are counting: The grizzlies have got: Jae Crowder Kyle Korver Him and Danny Ainge's son and cap relief so far for mike. The cap relief is great, but I'd still take mike over the 4 players we've gotten so far. So this team doesn't look so hot right now.

    2019 NBA DRAFT

    I think having Marc gasol on this team for so long has clouded your memory of what happens when we have a light center on the team and nobody else. Pau gasol was better than Jaren Jackson Jr in every way and we couldn't even get out of the first round of the playoffs because they would manhandle him in the post. the idea that Jaren Jackson Jr is the center of the future on this team is just so ludicrous to me but you know that's probably what the front office wants to do cuz I don't remember when we had pau gasol and nobody else.

    2019 NBA DRAFT

    That's what I think as well. It appears that Brandon might be (in their minds) Siakim or Clint Cappela. I just don't like the fact that the grizzlies are 5 years away from nothing. The raptors didn't draft one player other than Siakim for that team, and other than Golden State and when the spurs lucked into Tim Duncan, what teams actually draft a team, keep that team and they become champions? It rarely happens, unless you are a major market team.

    Brandon Clarke: Bringing Viciousness to Memphis

    I can't help but think that this article was as far as the grizzlies went to select him. And man, he has a lot to live up to, don't throw the grindfather's name on it. He just needs to not be a bust, how about that. The grindfather is too lofty for him right now.

    Did the grizzlies really have to move up to get clarke? why are the grizzlies wasting picks?

    Change, Identity, and all points in between

    I didn't read that but I can tell you that I'm depressed. We will never ever see another grit-and-grind on the grizzlies and ja Morant is not going to be Mike Conley I just hope he ain't a complete bust and Jaren Jackson Jr is not the second coming either. But okay I'm glad the board is happy

    Is Ja Morant Worthy of a #2 pick?

    that who had that? I'm seriously not sure how you got from: mob mentality and that hunter is probably better than ja, to THEY had players selected in top 10. lol, maybe you are thin-skinned about the fact that Toronto just blew up your theory that you DONT have to have players drafted in the top 10 to win a championship. You don't even have to have a steph curry level point guard to do it, and you can actually have a slow lumbering center in your starting lineup. Bye, I guess?

    that if they don't have Robert Horry makes that shot they don't win that championship?

    Trade 23 for a bunch of second round slots?

    they basically have added about 5 years of job security because as long as they have no expectations we don't expect much. get it

    Honestly you have just been lead to believe that Mike Conley wasn't worth THAT much, by all of the Memphis Media heads and the fact that the grizzlies got a fair return seems "different," not to mention the fact that the grizzlies got lucky in the draft. But this is the same front office that all they wanted to do was convey the pick. That didn't even hold a draft party because they were hoping for a different outcome, that are still operating under the mob mentality. I don't really see a Masri level thinking in this front office. I see a bunch of guys letting the media dictate what they are going to do. Ja may be the best player for us, but I have my doubts, and it is clear that the front office never even considered anybody else and the only reason the grizzlies don't have Marvin Bagley on this team was because the grizzlies drafted 4th. If the grizzlies drafted 2nd, they would have passed on Doncic, and did just what dumb Sacramento did. But yeah the grizzlies got lucky that they their choice was made FOR THEM. This time around it isn't. Ja is who EVERYBODY says is the best pick, so he has to be right?
