    Would You Rather....NBA Draft Lottery Edition

    Now we are free.
  2. He's an injury-plagued, probably currently overweight rookie for the love of god! What moron cares about Zion in the playoffs?
  3. Someone who actually deserves one.

    News from Tillery

    Even in a time of great crisis, Tillery plays the role of the bitter ex girlfriend. Who actually believes him on this? Get a life dude.

    Why the trade with Miami is a bad trade.

    Wait till y'all see Winslow in this system.

    Why the trade with Miami is a bad trade.

    Winslow is a championship level role player and a perfect fit with this group in every way. We’re building this thing piece by piece and this is another move made where the vision is clearly set on a title. We came out of this with a young elite level role player and the bad contracts we took on won’t affect our 2021 cap space, which is clearly when we want it.

    Justise Winslow to MEMPHIS

    This I am not thrilled about. But I think Winslow might be a perfect fit with the rest of our guys in terms of both personality and on court. So maybe it will balance out.

    Justise Winslow to MEMPHIS

    Those are the expirings we’ll be using in the Bradley Beal trade next season, they shouldn’t be complaining.
  9. Another win for one of the best front offices in the NBA.
  10. Definitely but I'm thinking more long term when we are ready to ante up for that third star to put with Ja and Jaren. Can't have enough ammo.
  11. Deals like this are invaluable when you are trying to build a championship team. Having a player of his caliber at such a team friendly number (probably two thirds of the cap space he is arguably worth) is going to be huge when we are ready to go for it all n a couple of years.
  12. Man let's get our hands on some of those picks. I trust Kleiman completely. He's going to come out smelling like roses no matter what.
  13. Apparently the lakers made a “Hail Mary” attempt to land him but it’s going to be Miami. What we about to get???

    Brooks: Can't wait until Grizzlies trade Iguodala

    Love this group to death.

    Grizzlies/NBA Free Agency Thread

    Wow, didn't realize the deadline is this coming Thursday. Wonder if we'll get some action this weekend?

    Thought about him all day.

    The Thabeet Story: "He just got left behind"

    "The Grizzlies gave up on me," Thabeet said. "You never heard of a No. 2 pick who got as few minutes as I did or as few chances as I did. If I'd been drafted by a different team, it would have been a different story. There's no question in my mind. I wouldn't be playing for the Mad Ants. I might be playing for the Pacers. If I'd been developed, I'd still be in the NBA right now." He is such a loser. Our organization was a circus back then, but he had zero basketball talent or intuition. And on top of that he was lazy. It's way late to finally realize you aren't good enough to not put in the work. All things considered, I really do believe he's the biggest NBA draft bust of all time.
  18. Crowder nailed his Clippers audition.
  19. For me there will always be a faint sting that we were so close to an NBA legend and didn’t come away with him, but JJJ is about as good a consolation prize we could have asked for. What an epic draft that was.

    Grizz 2020 Predictions

    I'm looking forward to Boston getting pied in the face yet again with what was supposed to be a prized asset conveying into a late lottery pick in a weak draft.
  21. You mean the one we used to pick Ja? Just be thankful that we didn't get stuck with no Luka + a Jared Culver type and we rid ourselves of the failures who traded our pick for Jeff Green and replaced them with some of the sharpest young minds in the NBA. Ja is going to be an MVP candidate for a number of years alongside Luka.

    2020 NBA Draft

    I'm intrigued. He seems to fit what the FO/Jenkins are trying to do long term more than Edwards would. I'm mostly concerned about potential redundancies in some areas with Ball and Ja, but they bring different skills to the table as well. Mostly my concern would be whether either is effective off the ball. I feel like Ja would be with his elite athleticism and finishing but I also don't want the ball taken out of his hands. Still though, think it would be an experiment worth conducting. Would be really fun to watch them together. The next step would be finding an elite 3&D wing and that would round out the core as we head toward our first playoff push in a year or two. GTF I saw you said it's rumored that we're after Ball- where you hearing this?
  23. Not really sure about this one. On top of giving them Iggy we're taking on their unwanted contracts which will eat into our cap space this summer. For an end of the round first? I think we can do better.
  24. Love the idea of parlaying our pick this year into Russell if we end up keeping it.

    What Should We Do if We Luck Into The #1 Pick In 2020?

    I want Wiseman but I just can't see how it would work him, JJJ and Clarke. I feel like it would come down to, if we are going to draft Wiseman then we have to trade Jaren. But then you'd most likely be selling low.
