    2019 NBA DRAFT

    Williamson looks like if Vince Carter and Zbo had a baby, but my first thought about him was he looks like another Robert Tractor Traylor.

    My biggest agreement is with Marc. The guy hasother things on his mind but basketball, he can lie to himself all he wants. However I will say that chemistry can happen quickly and in less than 20 games, so while these guys haven't played with one another, it could still gel really fast. My biggest problem is I don't trust Bickerstaff YET, the grizzlies don't have a secondary scorer to help mike, rebounding is a problem and Marc's decline is real. I don't think that Mike's injury concern is that much of a concern, honestly. Mike's lack of playing time and injury history (like his apparent decline) is greatly exaggerated. All we heard the year before last is that Marc was an injury risk: and yet he continues to play injury-free. I still think Rabb is better than people think, but right now he doesn't have a position since he isn't going to leapfrog JJJ or Jam.
  3. Not for 1 year. He would have to sign a long term contract
  4. I think I've changed my mind on Jimmy Butler. If I were the grizzlies I might dangle JJJ at the twolves for him. The thing is that the grizzlies are probably about to get the best Chandler they've had in years. They have mostly vets on the team. Yeah, JJJ could be great someday but it won't be this year. It's clear that the grizzlies need a number 2 scorer, that marc just isn't going to be that anymore. You add butler to the mix and suddenly yeah the grizzlies would be firing on all pistons again. And we can let Gasol be what he wants to be a passer and a guy that really doesn't want to be a scorer.

    Hollinger has been looking for a player like Yuta: a ball-handling 3 that can take it off the rim and go coast to coast with it. The dude's fast break ability looks legit and his defense is a bonus.

    The problem with JJJ. He does not rebound well enough to be a 4, and he does not handle well enough to be a 3, and he is foul prone. I still don't know what position he should play. Pairing him with Marc is going to get us killed on the boards.

    That Yuta kid is the most athletic 3 the grizzlies have had in years. I know it is preseason but he looks good.

    He's going to be better than Tyreke. Tyreke was a choker. He was Fool's Gold.

    My opinion is this: MarShon Brooks is the next Victor Oladipo. I believe Marshon went to China and made himself into a hell of a basketball player. The grizzlies should lock this guy down for multiple years. I give him a 40 million dollar contract. Conley and MarShon Brooks could be the Grizzlies version of Curry and Thompson, or Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum.

    Marshon Brooks should be our starting shooting guard. I feel like that he is the only true shooting guard on this team.

    The thing is people forget that it took the Grizzlies 2 years and one of the greatest defensive players of all time, plus a younger Gasol, to become gng. Not to mention Lionel Hollins drilling it into their head every day that they got to play defense. We don't have that anymore. I guess it's pretty wishful thinking that that can happen again right away. It probably isn't going to happen. I do take issue with the fact that the Grizzlies do have talent but my whole issue and what I might agree with is the fact that people think that we're going to be able to recreate grit-and-grind. That's probably not going to happen.

    The key to this team will be coaching and defense. If the grizzlies can play top 5 defense they will be 50 + win team, if they can't they will be a .500 win team. The only way I see your doomsday scenario being right is if Marc plays apathetically as he did last night. Bickerstaff is not going to challenge him like Lionel did, after Fizdale was fired over trying. My main concern is coaching at this point. You are right that this is not the grit and grind heyday, but the grizzlies have some upper echelon defensive players on the team.

    I think I'm done watching the game tonight. Marc needs to get his *** in shape. He is really ******* me off.

    Most of the problem has been with Marc Gasol's laziness or apathy or both, on offense. Without him playing at a high level our offense is going to look bad. We rely far too much on Marc and that might be scary given how he is playing.

    Kyle Anderson and Conley have looked the best so far. Marc looks terrible. Parsons looks pretty good. Jam looks pretty good. Dillon doesn't look that great, but he has played decent defense. All in all, the grizzlies look pretty good.
