    Really New Jersey, Indiana in the 04 run were weak teams. I do recollect that Jersey was the defending ECF champs and Indy had the best record overall that year. But yeah I can see that they were weak teams.

    Maybe Portland wants to take a crack at SB and trade Przbilla for Rip?

    That dude is shooting .745 this year. Pretty sure that is an NBA record. Also, he's leading their team in rebounds and right up there with the blocks leaders too.

    Might be too much of a duplicate of Kwame though.

    Think Rip would be happier sitting the bench behind Roy instead of AI?

    No, I figured they could put him at the SF or PF spot to create mismatches galore.

    Now I'm purely speculating, and none of this is fact at all, so just take it with a grain of salt as MHO!
    Sheed: They're playing SB and we all know he hates it. He also has a problem with Punk Ass coaches, and MCBalless is being a punk.
    Max: His role is as onconsistent now as it's ever been, adn we all know SB has something to do with that.

    All that concern over whether or not we had a strong bench over the last few years. Just think of the bench we're about to have. Maybe the best bench in history?

    AI or Rip
    Dyess

    All incredible players who would be playing the bench purely for the good of the team. All 3 of them would be starters on > 20 other NBA teams.

    Toss in Afflalo, Maxiell/Amir, Kwame and that's pretty dangerous.

    Could this unit exist with no SF?

    AI
    AA
    Max
    Amir
    Dyess

    Think of the defense and the rebounding to compliment AI.

    I let one article traduction of Marc Gasol declarations against the zero ambition of memphis players. Marc is very frustatred because he only wants to win games not make individual stadistics. That´s the reason to defend Mike Conley against other starters who only thing in his stats,not team play.

    One young,ambition, and good center in rookkie seasson must be Joe´s target, gasol is not happy in tenesse.


    'Rajadón' monumental against the Grizzlies Marc Gasol
    CATALAN EXPLOTA TO THE SAD REALITY OF LIVING TEAM TENNESSEE

    * Criticizes some colleagues for his franchise and for wanting to pass Conley "Youth is a good thing, but we as an excuse" Although rookie, Marc is more mature than most of the team

    The frustration experienced by the apparel of the Memphis Grizzlies escaped abroad by Marc Gasol's mouth as you release a steam pressure cooker. The uncontrollable nature of the pivot Catalan could not resist evil and charged some of its peers, which seems to give them the same amount of losses amounting to the Grizzlies, and even some movements of the franchise.

    INTERNATIONAL PARTNERS
    "We apologized to each training. That is what makes some people"

    "Who in this team is not frustrated with problems. We should all be." The phrase is strong and holds what happens in the dressing room of the team: there are people who do not care what is happening. Is not the case for Marc, who is tired and denies that youth should be the occasion to give all their sins. "Youth is a good thing, but we use it as an excuse. We're always putting. He cast blame the referee or colleagues. We apologize in each workout. That's what makes some people [the staff]. Not going nowhere, "Marc unbraided

    The strength of statements by Marc is partner to its legitimacy. Spanish is a rookie, but has much experience in Europe, as highlighted in the newspapers that reflect their words Memphis. It is more mature than most of his colleagues and his attitude is beyond question.

    AGAINST THE FRANCHISE
    "I know that I will find a problem saying that, but I do not like" the transfer of Conley

    Marc has come a long way since it had even criticized the idea of transferring his franchise to Mike Conley in exchange for Ramon Sessions and Joe Alexander, the Milwaukee Bucks. "I know that I will find a problem saying that, but I do not like. Mike is important to us. I always think about the team, and I have not found many players like him in the NBA," he says.

    In his defense, implicitly criticizing Marc Iavaroni (Conley said that it costs to pay because sometimes holds and sometimes not, and some even play), and melts in praise to his partner. "It works, do what the coach asks for help to their colleagues. It is always trying to do the right thing," he says.

    A punch on the table
    Marc's words will cause an earthquake in Memphis, it seems obvious. And it is another example of common sense and the character of this player. His punch on the table being a rookie makes it regards the franchise and the leader of the team morale.
