    Thank goodness. That could have been the straw that broke the camel's back.

    I'm actually OK with the organization losing that guy's allegiance. The adult cheerleader vibe is part of the reason.

    The Grizz improved on both ends of the court with the subtraction of Gay and the addition of Tay and Daye?

    The numbers say "yes", but the strength of schedule says "maybe not".



    NBA.com/Stats « NBA.com | Hang Time Blog

    Also noted in the article is that the league's best performing defensive unit with at least 100 minutes together is:
    Lowry, DeRozen, Gay, Amir, Valvicious...

    So, it seems as though losing Gay isn't a reason for the Grizz D to noticeably improve.

    The fact that the Memphis points allowed only dropped by 1.4 points after playing all of those crappy teams may actually mean the defense has gotten worse. Let's see what the numbers look like after a few more weeks.

    I have no doubt about this truism.
    In the end, it just got bitter.
    Perhaps he saw a mental slippage within himself, a professional lack of conviction.
    And personal history is deep.
    Critical consciousness much deeper.
    Transcendent loyalty the deepest.

    Tay was rolling in the deep.

    I've always felt that Tay was just afraid to move on.
    He had issues leaving the nest.
    Owning small luggage is simply a manifestation of his unwillingness to leave.

    Tay stepped up in crunch time last night as a "leader on the floor. The Clippers had trailed most of the second half by ten closed to within 3 with about six minutes to go.

    Tay came back in settled his team mates down...shut down both Jamal Crawford and Matt Barnes in the end. he score two hoops during this time frame including isotaying drive thru the defense dunk that put the Clippers back up by 10 with less than 90 seconds left and sent the Staple Center fans out to streets. The Grizz finish the game on a 15-4 run to win by 11.

    The Clipper announcers gave Tay all the praise saying his leadership is what has the Grizzlies on their current streak of 14 wins out of their last 15.

    #22 will hang in the raptors. All I know is for 10 years , he came to "play every night!". Althoough I will always believe Joe thought WAY to high of him by not taking Carmelo, Chris Bosh or Dwayne Wade with the number 2 pick. Prince would have been the best 6th man in the league since John Havlicek. But thanks for the memories "My name Is Prince!"

    Okay, if you want to talk ridiculous....how about taking 2 years off from the forum and your first post back is giving love to the man with the little suitcase. Now that is ridiculous!

    Beating the Clipps at their house is pretty significant.

    Heyya SKOOL! Been a long time my friend! Welcome back.

    As far as ridiculous goes, how about the 3PG attack that Detroit is using nowadays?
