    The Grizzlies FO...

    I remember how the whole world (including me) thought they were stupid for the moves they made

    Trading Gasol for NOTHING (at the time)
    Trading Love for OJ Mayo
    Drafting Hasheem Thabeet with the 2nd overall

    In reality, that Gasol trade gave them Marc Gasol and room to sign Randolph & Tony Allen
    They traded Love & drafted Thabeet but they now have one of the best frontcourts in the NBA so you can't really hate them that much for it.

    Back then we thought all of these moves were stupid but they end up with a top team in the West... Much respect

    Also the Rudy Gay for Shane Battier trade was a steal.

    But they are not stupid just average.

    ^^^That was a toss up... Rockets needed Battier & Memphis needed a scorer... It was always pretty even to me

    its not even at all. Rudy gay is a good 2 option on a contending team, battier is just a role player.


    Yall let me slip?!?!

    Not really those were some pretty stupid moves, the development of Gay, Gasol, and Conley is what has made them so good. Randolph was a great fit in Memphis. If anyone deserves credit is Lionel Hollins and his coaching staff for developing these guys into great players.

    At the time, the Battier trade was good. He was a piece that Houston really needed, but obviously Tmac messed everything up. Rudy Gay + Tmac wasn't gonna work when Houston was in win now mode.

    How were they in "win now mode"? Yao and McGrady were both like 26 years old.
    Battier trade was terrible.

    edit: Memphis also got Stromile Swift in the deal... who was serviceable...

    All those moves are still terrible but it just shows that you can put a winner on the floor despite terrible mistakes.

    Pity Psd deletes threads/posts after a while.
    Or you could read it from me in my posts on trade day.

    I mean Marc was in the middle of his MVP season in spain.

    Other Mvp Winners of spanish league?

    Petrovic
    Sabonis
    Pau
    Scola

    I mean, the hints were there.
