Have people been watching them play lately, i know they lost tonight against the celts, but i mean if Pierce and Allen don't come up super clutch they win that game most likely. I don't know if they'll make the playoffs this year, but they'll get close i think, around .500 IMO. Now outta Portland, OKC, and Memphis, I think the Grizz can be that next great team 2-3 years down the road, they have unreal young talent.

Conley 22
Mayo 22
Gay 23
Randolph 28
Gasol 24

Darell Arhur 21
Thabeet 22
Sam Young 24
Demarre Carrol 23
Haddidi 24
Marcus Williams 24

Do the Grizz have more potential than any other team now? What do you guys think... and how well do you see them doing this year and next year?

Their young guards need to learn some defense.


But yes, they have great potential.

that there is only one thing needed and its a gay for BETTER PG + defensive minded sf and some picks for them to start rolling.

I like their squad, it's just their bench I don't like that much with the exception of Thabeet. They can be great as long as they have a great coach with a great leader

The Wolves will probably offer more money than the Grizzlies do.

I actually think they have more potential than Portland, especially with Oden continually getting injured (hopefully he gets better). Only other team that really looks loaded in the next few is OKC. If they can hold Westbrook, Harden, Durant, and Green.. they'll be pretty tough to beat. The Grizz could actually make the playoffs this year, but i think they just miss out.. too many good teams in the west.

HC Should they trade Gay for Battier?

Hellcrooner

^not straight up because battier is older now. something more shoudl be added.



but here is an itresting fact.

verybody in these boards ( except me of course, ut you all knwo im crazy) woudl say gays is better than battier.


well 2005-6, grizz with battier made playoffs for thid straight year.

folowing year they trade battier for gays rights hte rest of the team is basically the same grizzz to the lottery.

it may mean soemthign..

It means Pau misses the majority of Rudy's time in Memphis because of injury :facepalm:

As for the Griz, Zach Randolph deserves credit. Face facts, he may have been a problem in Portland because he knew they didn't want him anyway but he has not been the problem on any of his last 3 teams.

If New York keeps him, they make the playoffs last year but the Knicks didn't want to win as they went for a lotto pick since they knew they wouldn't have one this year.

The Clippers got better with him and fell off when he got hurt. Baron was the poison of that team because he transformed back into his old, fat, lazy, injured self.

There has been nothing bad said about him in Memphis and Mayo and Gay have both said that he was the one encouraging them through the losing and the voice during the AI problem.

The boy could always score and rebound, and although his D is subpar the fact is that he has tried to help the team and they have let him. The end result is a good team.

yes zach is doing it good.

memphis is failign in distributing the ball, conleys fault and is having troubel because they have TOO many scoring optins with ok, gay, zach and marc.


thats why i say they should try and trade gay ( who is an expiring tha twill lead them to trouble or overpay matching an offer) for a GOOD DISTRIBUTOR for pg and a DEFENSIVE MINDED SF then have three clear scoring options 1 oj, 2 marc third Zach in that order.

AI leaves and the team gets better overnight, wonder if it's a coincidence...

All Memphis needs to do is trade Gasol a defensive center.

Yea they are coming along very well, they are really responding to Hollins coaching. I think keeping Gay will be key but as long as some of the guys buckle down on defense and guys dont mind being role players then they should be ok.

combine the best players of OKC and the GRIZZLIES...that would be stacked with young talent, a real contender in a few years....
