Memphis is Cheap

Apparently the GM wanted to make David Lee an offer but the owner of the Grizzlies shot that idea down. Looks like Memphis won't be spending much money this free agent period. What a joke...I guess they enjoy being in the lottery everyyear.

Thats why they suck every year. They got Miles because they don't need to pay him, we do!

Not only cheap but they're

Not only cheap but they're stupid. Gasol can't play pf. so let's say that Thabeet does pan out. Then what are they doing? They should try to send conley and thabeet to NY for hill and duhon or something like that.

Cheap and stupid. No sir you

Cheap and stupid. No sir you are very wrong. We don't want Gasol to play PF any way. Whats wrong with having good depth? Gasol and Thabeet could be the best Center rotation in the league. As for cheap......

I don't understand this

I don't understand this whole C/ PF confusion. Every C in the league can be possibly considered a PF. (other than yao ming because you cant be 8 inches taller than ur center) Just ask Duncan, KG, Dwight, Gasol or any other of the countless players who have rotated amongst the two. The both have the same exact roles- rebound and control the paint. It is nice if a PF can step out and hit a jumper but this is not a prerequisite. The C is the tallest guy and the PF is the second tallest guy. You have never heard this argument that two big men can't play together made by experts or analysts. It is not even looked at as any GM no these positions designations between C and PF mean nothing.

There's nothing to watch out

There's nothing to watch out for. They can have the 14 lottery picks and they would still suck. You can't be a winning organization when your owner doesn't want to spend money.

ill help you

ill help you understand...when you have 2 guys that do the same thing then theres a problem down low because both need space to operate..if gasol plays pf( which they have said they wanna try him at) then when he steps out teams dont have to honor his jumper because at this point he doesnt have a consitant one..kg can play with a bigman cuz he can shoot the same with gasol duncan and the countless others who can..now if gasol learns to hit that jumper then it can work..as of now it cant with great success

memphis

Memphis seriously sucks.. By the time all their talent meshes together, Their key players will be free agents and receive substantially better offers from other teams that don't have a cheap owner. I cannot respect their franchise as an NBA contender until they put some money on the table and make some moves.

Rumor

Memphis has just traded Quintin Richardson to the Clippers for Zach Randolph.
