Not going to lie this made me sad but the big fella deserves a chance to compete one more time. Class act the entire time. Always a Memphian in my heart

That was the worst deal in franchise history. I remember I wanted Barnes, that would probably not move us to contenders status but at least we would be better. 

The only good thing about it is that we got Jaren for all that mess

your 100 percent right a chris Wallace deal

Exactly. They are stupid if they start him over Siakam or Ibaka.

Good luck to marc gasol. 

I'm not a fan at all, so i'm happy the overrated titty baby is finally gone.

The owner or whoever is wanting to retire his jersey is dumb af.  What is he getting his jersey retired for?   For being BFF with pera?

The grizz never won any banners under marc gasol.   We did come close to winning a division title once, but that was the year that marc gasol played great until the all star break and then cruised the rest of the season as losses piled up and we choked away the division title.   I will never forgive him for that.

The success the grizz enjoyed was when zbo was the man.  Not with mike and marc.  Not tony allen.

The only person who should have their jersey retired, and even that is questionable,  would be zach randolph.

Does this post really belong in the Big Spain appreciation thread?

It's just dumb to retire a player's number when a lot of fans didn't really like him at the end of his era, because they realized he was selfish and lazy and without the heart of a true winner.

 Yes, marc gasol has skills, but he only wants to play the game his way.

That's why he got traded.

So i'm making my case as to why his number should not be retired.

I APPRECIATE that marc gasol is gone.  Should have been done years ago.  

Does that comment work for my haters ?  Can you let that go?  Doubt it.

There are about 5 of you on this board that are classified as true haters. All I am saying is you should keep your hate out of the Big Spain appreciation thread. Have some class man. those four guys put Memphis on the map. Zbo, TA, Mike and of course Marc

Well your case simply doesn't have much weight and you are in the vast minority.

Marc went off in the 4th for the Raps last night. 

The fans in attendance seemed to be pretty happy with the trade.

unless mike goes on to lead us to a championship I don't think any of core4 should have banner/jersey retired individually

it should be as a group or something or nothing

That's what I think they will do.  Retire them all together one day.

Why not wait a while and see how long that euphoria lasts. I'm fired up for the Grizz 2. I'm not a Gasol hater but I did see what happened when JB took Noah out of a game the Grizz was leading and they then fell flat on their face.

Seriously, some mod needs to clean up this thread.

Classless.

Marc was figuratively and literally at the Center of the greatest era in our team's history.  And it's not his fault that this team stinks now.  Trading him was the right thing to do, just as much for his sake as anyone else's.  He deserves our thanks and appreciation.

This is one of those times that I have to know my role and stay in my lane... 

I REALLY want to 'mod-ify' a few of the posts - and not just in this thread - 

BUT 

I cannot start censoring speech that breaks no rules .

I mean... the rules apply evenly to all of those who post here. (Even me)

Now that I have gotten THAT outta the way ...

Marc was Memphis BEFORE he was a Grizzly... 

He is STILL Memphis to me.

I wish him the best in Toronto ... the Raps just got a new fan - me.
