Damaged goods is exactly what zbo was considered before he got here.  Now his jersey will be retired 

But ZBo actually gave you production on the court. JJ hasn't, at least not to date.

I hope and somewhat expect that he never gets to play for the Grizz.

We do not need damaged goods in the locker room.

Why would you wish that? I would rather he turn things around and become a huge contributor for the Grizzlies.

True but the premise of damaged goods,  or blackhole still apply

Underdeveloped skills (he was picked #4 off some unwarranted HS hype), bad attitude, low IQ, poor work ethic. What else is there to see here? 

BUT our other options are TRASH.   At this point Josh couldn't possibly be a worse option than the guys that's been playing.   

Jackson is more athletic and can actually run a PickNRoll and catch lobs.   I want to see a Marko + Josh wing combo.   See if they can compliment each other skillwise and fit alongside Ja.

You are wrong. Josh can be worse. We all just hope he isn't.

Right. He can be worse. Looking at on court impact he was one of the worst players in the league last year. I guarantee you could find a take for 28 year old Jae Crowder right now at virtually the same dollars Phoenix had to beg anyone to take 22 year old Josh Jackson for.

Of course Jae would be traded for before Josh - no arguments there.     Just let me see what Josh can do in a different environment with TWO legit PGs.   Remember they didn't have one his entire stint in PHO.   I know he has flaws but he also does have skills too.  

Let's just see is all i am asking.

Do you want to go to the Hustle's opening game? I think it would be fun to watch personally.

Maybe we will see. Just always alarmed when good athletes are poor defensively. Says something about them usually.

i have entertained the idea of  taking the kids but never motivated enough to go all the way thru.   Usually the guys i want to see have all been on the Varsity squad.

This year's Hustle team ought to be pretty entertaining and you'd get to see what Josh's game is really about instead of making assumptions on people's writings about him.

I think he can be a solid perimeter defender - the ability is there.   It's just sad that Ja has only one lob target in starting lineup.   It really just speaks to the state of our roster when i can see real logical reasons to bring Josh and Solomon into the rotation.

We could make it an event for the message boards. Getting a bunch of devoted posters together at the Hustle game possibly could get us some special seating as well.

If we could get 10 posters there we'd practically double the usual attendance! 

That's cruel. It wasn't that poorly attended last year but it wasn't close to selling out either.

I'm pretty sure if Josh can keep it together (personally) for a few weeks, or a month, and ball out in jr. league, he will be called up soon enough.

Well, if you guys that live locally in Memphis go to see their game, let the rest of us know how the kid looked.  I'd go if I was still in Memphis.
