    Yeah, but: a thread you may wish to avoid

    He grew 2 inches. The NBA changed the way they measured players this summer. He was measured as 6'9 barefoot his rookie summer. Now he meaures 6'11' barefoot this summer. Hence 2 inch spurt. FYI Donovan Mitchell is now listed as 6'1' instead of 6'3'.

    Whats wrong with him shooting 10 threes a game? Isnt that what we always want our best 3pt shooter to do? We know jaren can score in a myriad of ways. He still attacks slower Bigs off the dribble and posts up smaller guys. Which is something we always wanted Marc to do. Everyone has to realize the NBA has changed and we have the prototype. The old rules do not apply to him.
  3. Yea i dont think critics are acknowledging this enough. Jaren is more "one dimensional" due to the personnel. Jonas IS the paint big which forces JJJ to floor spacer role by default. Jaren isnt really a rim runner like BC or Jonas. However he is a good low post big but that requires good entry passers. So he is forced to mainly generate offense like a wing. Once Ja improves as interior passer and JJJ gets to be sole Big. He will be unstoppable on offense. Jaren IS special. So what if he cant rebound. You get role players for that. He is an elite level scorer.

    Ja out tonight?

    Very true but i am enjoying watching Meltons development. Jaren turning it on makes it more watchable too.

    Grizzlies PR @GrizzliesPR Ja Morant and Brandon Clarke will not play Friday vs @Bucks but will be available Saturday vs @WashWizards . In conjunction with their recent respective injuries, Morant tomorrow will be listed as “OUT–Injury Maintenance–Back" and Clarke as “OUT–Injury Maintenance–LT Oblique."

    First!

    Yea getting a Top 5 pick is looking really precarious. Ja JAREN and Brandon are too good. Also i think its time for all the Jaren non-believers to start coming back to Church. Jaren IS a Special talent so what if he can't rebound. He and Ja are going to create their own prototype because neither one of them have an easy comp. Same with BC. Also super big shout out to DeAnthony Melton. I think he is looking like a longterm piece as well. Exciting times Grizzfam.

    yea everything he does screams IMMATURITY. I was hoping this humbling experience will help him grow up. Kevin Porter Jr seems to be cut from the same cloth too. Super talented young guys that are super immature. I still hope he can get his act together but it is seeming less likely that it will happen with a Grizz uni on. I am just really glad that De Anthony looks like a legit prospect. Getting him plus the picks still looks like a win regardless of Josh outcome.

    Yep. Because all he had to do is keep his nose clean for a month and he can't do that. I never thought he would be a Star. Just wanted a legit defensive minded prospect on roster. But luckily DeAnthony could be that guy.
  11. Uhmmm Ja and Jaren faces are all over Memphis. They are the #4 and #2 picks so they aren't auditioning for anything. The keys were signed sealed and delivered to them already. Only one who was auditioning is BC and he nailed it. This is the NBA and it is NOT an Equal Opportunity Employer. Draft status and Salary are of the utmost consideration along with skillset and fit when it comes to role on NBA roster decisions. You think Ja earned the right to start over Tyus in practice? Opening day press conference was all about how they handed Ja the keys!?!? Every season a team "keys" are being handed over to the new rookies. Zion, RJ, Luka, Trae, all got the keys handed to them. I am not understanding how you don't understand this.

    Okay fine - I am out on him. If dude can't get it together in Southaven then where can he? Lets put all the energy into Melton and see who we can get in an Iggy/Crowder trade.
  13. My point is for this season it is more important to get the cornerstones on the right page than anything else. Taylor needs to design a system that MAXIMIZES those 3 players. Ja needs to learn where Jaren and BC need the ball. When to take a backseat and takeover. Everybody else is auditioning to be along for the ride.
  14. Yep that's why i really want Jaren Ja and BC playing max amount of minutes together. Those 3 developing chemistry will be the real determining factor for all future moves. If those 3 are good together then it won't matter who is on the wings. +100 I liked Wendall but totally good with Jaren. Its pretty easy to see that Jaren's ceiling is much higher as a scorer.
