Re: “Next Day Notes: Warriors Hand Grizzlies the Worst Loss in Franchise History

Now the rumor is out that the Grizzlies are trying to swap Beno Udrih for Mario Chalmers!!!
If that was to be confirmed, then it'd speak volume of how incompetent (excuse my French!) the FO is. Really?
We need SHOOTERS and we blame the backup PG? Why do we always have to pick up the leftovers of other teams? Chalmers? Can he solve how problem?
Let's just blow (TANK) this whole thing out and rebuild around MC & Gasol...while Zbo would still be treated with great reverence for what he has done.
But Beno for Chalmers? How about Russ + Beno for Shabazz Napier?
Geeees! Wallace and his (s)crew are just vision-less!
Get SHOOTERS or else get new coach & new GM!

Re: “Next Day Notes: Warriors Hand Grizzlies the Worst Loss in Franchise History

It's time to face the truth: The team, as currently built, isn't going to win the LO trophy!
Let's face it, even if we win around 50 games this season, what good will it do if we can't compete (and I mean COMPETE) with teams we know for have our number come playoffs time?
A team like SA Spurs that we're trying to copy the blueprint from, has shown us how to do it: small market, no problem, just build from inside. Meaning draft wisely, develop drafted players, have a system-based game and not a player-based game; that way the system is perennial while you only draft and sign player that can fit the system.

And BTW: Isn't it time we start saying something about the coach DJ? I mean does he still get a pass?
And what about the GM? Can we say something about the drafts and "marquis" free agents signed? Or do we wait a year or two before starting to hold them accountable?

Are we going to waste Gasol's ( and Conley's maybe) last years by keeping quiet?
Had the FO prepared the "after Z-BO" era, we should have had a young groomed player doing his teeth while ZBO would be playing only when needed! Isn't it time we start questioning the FO vision? The key to everything is preparation!

For instance, I'm not sold on Russ Smith being ready to run the team any time soon; he certainly has the talent, but lacks the stamina, composure, maturity needed. MC is getting up in age... why don't we get a guy like Shabazz Napier...
He has the kind of skills that we need a Grizz point guard to have...
One more thing: getting good deals is good (Vince Carter, Matt Barnes etc..) as long as one knows how to mix "ingredients" a la SA Spurs... otherwise Youth, a la GSW, has an advantage over "experience" as we saw tonight!
