Cool jjj article

Recommended Posts

Great article.

Also a good inside info on what went down on draft day. I’m glad we didn’t draft Young and tried to play hardball with Atlanta. They may very well have kept JJJ.

 “Once he finds out how good he can really be, that’s when it’s going to get scary,” Bridges says. “I think he’s the best in our draft.”

Seems a little dysfunctional that the F.O. is looking at high lottery pick possibilities in December and didn't jettison Reke at the trade deadline. Grizzlies certainly lucked out with JJJ.

The read was a little heavy-handed and laborious to get through but I did like the part about the Grizzlies considering taking Trae young and holding him ransom, hehehe

JJJ makes up for the Tyreke Botch somewhat.  On the flip side, we coulda used some extra 2nd rounders -- I thought this draft was pretty deep although I think it had a lot of land mines.  Jevon Carter should be a solid addition once he hits the main roster (I would have him as the 3rd string point guard by the playoffs).  

Marshon B. Free has yet to find the timing, the range, and the groove yet, so "Reke's replacement" leaves a lot to be desired.  Although Marshon hit some shots last night (I think) and doesn't hog the ball as much as Tyreke did.  Marshon B. Free has more range, too.  He also doesn't mind coming off the bench (I think).

Hopefully we get a good 2nd round special (or two) next June.  A backup 3 and D specialist at the 3 (or 2) might be the thing to look for.  Go get us a Michael Cooper or Bruce Bowen type.
