Re: “Road Recap: Grizzlies 93, Hornets 87

You may have already discussed, but what's up with Sam Young? Why can't he get minutes anymore? Does the staff think Pondexter is just better or is he in the dog house? I don't get it.

Re: “Rudy Gay Out Four (or More) Weeks: Can the Griz Survive?

The problem is this could have come at a worse time. Check out this upcoming schedule. I really think this changes us from a 46-47 win team to a 39 win team.

@SA 46-9

Re: “The Roster: 100 (or so) Word Reactions

So how does this team get better? Obviously, a lottery pick is ideal, but unlikely. This means we have to really find some diamonds in the rough with our other picks. I can't see us making a play in free agency and if we over pay for Gay it will set us back for a few years. What's the play here? I wouldn't mind us taking a shot at Bledsoe for the back up PG role.

Re: “Quick Hits: Rudy's Extension, Tonight's Game

Villanueva got 5 years 40 mil. Gay is worth a little more. If they really have 5 and 50 on the table, he needs to sign in a hurry.

Re: “Post-Lottery Links

We have so many good options. The Grizz will come out with a quality player. I think Clips take Griffin based on Dunleavy's comments and we go ahead and take Rubio. Then we try to trade for a 4 and hope to pick up someone like Hansborough at 27 that could be a high energy 4 off the bench.

I feel like the only way I will be truly unahappy is if we stay at 2 AND take Thabeet. If we trade down and get some quality players and end up with Thabeet, at least we didn't reach and have some other players to think about.
