    Roster Moves

    So apart from the miserables on this board, most logical people realize that the front office is going to make Marc Gasol their #1 priority. So what other moves will happen: 1. Jeff Green, I believe, will take his player option and look to play himself into a big contract next year when the money goes up. In the open market he isn't going to get 9 mill a year. 2. Vince Carter, to me what the grizzlies end up doing with Vince Carter will be critical since he has so much on the team he affects. With Vince, I don't see Jordan Adams seeing the light of day. Without Vince that paves the way for Adams to crack the regular man rotation (which he should do, by the way) 3. Nick Calathes, is gone. 4. Kosta Koufus. to me Koufus HAS to be resigned. I am not sure what his number will be but I'd have to match anything up to 10 million for him He is just too valuable to let go. 5. Jon Leuer. I am really not sure what the grzzlies should do with him, but he only cost 1 million dollars so I could see the grizzlies keeping him on that number and hoping he develops into something. 6. Beno and clee - both of these guys are solid role players who are on contracts till next year so there is really nothing to do with either of them. However, I think the grizzlies certainly need to upgrade both positions. What I am looking for from the grizzlies this offseason then is to clear the way for Jordan Adams and Jarnell Stokes to compete for the regular man rotation. I also think that the grizzlies NEED to find a way to get a dynamic pg to play behind conley. I think with Stokes, Koufus, Marc and Zach, we are set at the pf and center spots. I would hate for the grizzlies to go into next season with Vince Carter on the roster (amnesty anyone?). The grizzlies need smalls and a bunch of them. Also, I might consider changing coaches but I am not sure who we'd get. Lingering questions: will the grizzlies try to use jeff green as trade bait to get a draft pick, which I would love but not sure how it would be done.

    Woj: Grizz make Gasol and Conley available

    What is Wallace done except for not make trades that y'all wanted him to make? The last big trade that Wallace did turned out exactly fine. I'm not that hung up on Wallace. I don't think he's a great GM but I certainly don't think he's an idiot either like you guys do.

    Woj: Grizz make Gasol and Conley available

    There's only been one team in my lifetime that I've ever rooted for that actually won the championship and that was the Houston rockets in 95 and 94. I've been a sports fan since the early 70s when the Houston oilers had bum Phillips as their coach. And y'all are worried about the Grizzlies smdh. I really don't expect any team that I root for will ever win the championship. And let me just save you the drama Jaren Jackson Jr. is not going to take us to a championship either. But you guys will be happy at least that Mike and Marc ain't here so you can stop b****ing about them.

    Woj: Grizz make Gasol and Conley available

    you're criticizing Wallace for sticking with Marc and Mike so long and yet at the same time you're saying that we need to have a plan and stick with a plan, lol. Okay man.

    Woj: Grizz make Gasol and Conley available

    I'm actually happy about this. I don't really want to lose Conley, and I would prefer to get a real coach before we make conclusions, but at the same time it would have been a miracle the way the season has gone not to lose one of them. If someone gets Mike, it will require a hell of a deal though, I know that. Marc will be cheaper, but he is still going to bring a lot in a trade.
  6. I saw something last night in Mike. It was a most attacking style of basketball. In Short, Mike wasn't waiting for Marc or going through the normal high pick and roll, he came out firing. Marc might actually be holding Mike back. I for one would like to see how much mike could do without Marc and his safety net.

    Would Mike actually be better WITHOUT Marc?

    I guess you didn't read what they said about that in the commercial appeal? Basically Bickerstaff is following the advice of countless coaches who he queried about how best to develop jaren, and the prevailing idea was that you need to teach Jaren. So when Jaren makes a mistake biggerstaff takes him out and then teaches him what he was doing wrong, which is the advice he got from many coaches.

    Lebron, the east (oh and let's talk about how Derrick Rose is leading for a starting spot along with Luka Doncic, if that doesn't invalid allstar selections, there is no help for you). Again, Kyrie is a different player than Conley. He came in and he wanted to shoot as many shots as he could possibily get away with. Mike is not that type of a player. He is a team oriented star. It's clear that you prefer Kyrie, and that's cool. But he isn't the player that Mike is. Conley is a nice guy who works his butt off on offense and defense to HELP his team. Kyrie will NEVER make it to another finals in his career. Congratulations, life without LeBron.

    Time to trade Marc

    Kevin Durant never bulked up, I have no idea why someone would want to make Jaren less athletic. I could see if he had a chris bosh game. Hell, we did the same thing to Pau. Made him into something he was not and we cried for years to get him an "enforcer" once it was clear that Pau got outmanned consistently down low. I just don't see it.

    Time to trade Marc

    Jaren is not a center, he is a power forward. He's actually a hybrid forward at best. It would be like trying to make Kevin Durant a center, just because he is tall. It doesn't make a lot of sense. Jaren needs to focus on weakside defense and scoring the basketball, that's plent for him to handle right now. Part of the grizzlies the grizzlies are good defensively is that Jaren has Marc and Jam to fall back on. The kid isn't equipped to being a Olajuwon type rim protector.

    Kyrie took 14.8 shots his rookie year. Conley has only taken THAT many onec (this year) in his entire career. That tells you the mindset. And maybe you all like that about kyrie. Conley is the better defender by a large amount, there is no denying this. You guys love players that are self-promoters and conley is never going to be that. So conley is a lesser player than kyrie because he doesn't have a 10 gallon hat ego to go out there and hoist up 20 shots a game.

    Who gets to the line more, who scores more in the 4th quarter? Who didn't have LeBron on his team?

    Memphis Grizzlies @ Boston Celtics - 1/18/19

    Why would you think it is insane? His 3 more points a game doesn't tell me that he can "carry" a team. To what? Yeah when he had LeBron and kevin love they did something, other than that, boston is worse this year than they were last year without him. Take off the conley hater glasses and see it for what it is. Nothing you can point to shows kyrie is even marginally better than conley. His more celebrated by the league than conley is due to his big ego, so he has that. But comparing his "carrying" of the Celtics this year is laughable at best.

    Mike is better. Last night Kyrie went off. That doesn't change much or my opinion. Kyrie is a player on a team with a bunch of talent, a wunderkin head coach, and he sees himself as a guy that can take 23 shots a game. Still he's only averaging marginally more points than Conley who sometimes dont even take 12 shots a game. Conley is in the top 10 in the league in fourth quarter scoring, but yeah Conley is terrible and he is nothing more than a fake star. Carry on.

    Would Mike actually be better WITHOUT Marc?

    First of all there's more than one problem that's causing the Grizzlies to be bad, but Mike is not one of them. Fizdale's influence. Specifically, Marc shooting 3s, Mike playing off the ball. Mike playing off the ball is the dumbest idea fizdale had. Marc shooting threes has made him more lazy and when he tries to drive to the basket for a better shot he's turnover-prone. None of this helps the Grizzlies. The other problem the Grizzlies have is the league doesn't want anybody to play defense anymore. I almost created the thread asking this: so the Grizzlies know what they need to do now but does anybody want to watch this NBA anymore. In a perfect world The Grizzlies get a new offense a new philosophy or whatever and they start winning games, do you really want to watch NBA All-Star games 82 games a year? I'm really not about it myself. More than just about anything the league killed grit-and-grind not old age.

    Tie game the grizzlies get two contested 3s from Temple. That's not a recipe to win.

    Memphis Grizzlies @ Boston Celtics - 1/18/19

    I also can't stand that they take the ball out of Conley's hand so he can play off the ball. Both fizdale ideas, both make us a worse team. When conley brought the ball up just then you see the results, good things happen. Nobody should be bringing the ball up BUT conley at this point.

    Marc Gasol's decision to shoot threes, which was fizdale's idea, is part of the problem with the grizzlies offense. Marc doesn't have a handle to beat a player off the dribble, which is a turnover waiting to happen.

    2019 NBA DRAFT

    He looks like the ultimate showboater to me. Not sure he has the game to back up all of that showboating.

    How many times does horford have to beat up from three before marc decides he needs to guard him. It isn't like marc is grabbing rebounds.

    Memphis Grizzlies @ Boston Celtics - 1/18/19

    I'd keep Jam at all costs, but it's risky that he doesn't bolt once season ends, especially since Jaren is in front of him. Something has to give, because I doubt that Jam will want to come back to the grizz and I won't blame him.
  22. Kevin B Moses

    Woj: Parsons to leave Grizzles indefinitely

    No ****, people think jam is our best asset. yeah, because the dude has been our second best player and does everything for this team. But then again, I don't think jam will think twice leaving Memphis after he got lowballed last go around.

    Memphis Grizzlies @ Boston Celtics - 1/18/19

    I'm sorta torn. On the one hand, I think, even as bad as the grizzlies have played that they can somehow find whatever it is that makes teams win games and go on a run, at the same time I want jb fired. I want jb fired more than I want anything else. I think we should explore a marc trade, but then again, I still like marc if he can change. I'm torn.
  24. Kevin B Moses

    Memphis Grizzlies @ Boston Celtics - 1/18/19

    Why did Jaren get a foul, the dude gave him no room, and how is he supposed gather for a shot. It makes no sense to me. Jaren wasn't throwing an elbow at the guy.
  25. Kevin B Moses

    Time to trade Marc

    I don't want DSJ on this team. That was our problem last re-build jumping at the first player that is young an athletic. If the grizzlies are going to do this, they need to carefully decide what players that fit the team concept. Somehow I doubt that DSJ would meet that. Plus we need Becky Hammon to provide her vision for the team first.
