He needs to come on home to Memphis........we miss him! And he wants to stay with us.
The mods can take this out of the NBA forum, but with all the interest in him, I figure it's good for the bigger forum.
Wonder what's going on in his head.....he was ready to deal for his big contract and now the lockout is screwing it up.

Heisley (prior to the lockout) had stated he would match any offers if Marc wanted to stay in Memphis. I think it's definitely a positive move for the Grizz.

Off topic; Monta Ellis lives in the Memphis area now. Wonder if that's a sign????

I hope this means the lockout is slowly coming along because this is the 5th player mentioned in coming home or going to their homes within the city they play for which I believe can't happen in a lockout.

Fail=inability to detect subtle sarcasm
Besides there are ALWAYS rumors about him coming here...........

I second that dream if a fair trade can be put together.

OJ can be dealt, Marc resigned, we get a shooter and a solid pick next year and i would do it
