By no means is it time to write this team off. They're just now getting healthy and shaking the rust off. There are still 27 games left - plenty of time to make up a two game deficit to PHX or possibly four games to DAL/GS. They've dug themselves a hole, but it's certainly not insurmountable.

That said, it won't be easy. Of those 27 games remaining, 16 are on the road. 13 are against teams with a winning record (with 9 of those on the road). 10 games left with the Eastern Conf, though three of those are with Miami and Indiana. They've only got three games left with PHX/DAL/GS (two on the road) - the last game of the year is at home against the Mavs. That could be big.

I'm sorry but I'm gonna have to ask you to change your username and remove all other mention of the word irish or Notre Dame. Thanks.

Sounds like you guys might sign Jimmer. While he is far from a complete player, he's shooting 49% from 3 this year. I think he would be a nice fit for you guys.

I got the Grizzlies projected to finish at 49-33. Will that be enough? Who knows

I don't know what to make of this or if there are any legs at all. My guess is that people are overthinking it.

Terrible. Maybe for a couple of games but I love our color scheme and it does not need to be changed.

3SOB updated their article. Said all of their claims about Pera wanting a redesign are inaccurate and that it was just something special for MVPs.

Thank God. Nothing else to see here.

3SOB admits to jumping the gun, overreacting, and having no sources? That'd be way more accurate. Bloggers with ego.

NBA has discussed bigger court, 4-point shot - ESPN

Quote:
NBA president of basketball operations Rod Thorn and vice president Kiki Vandeweghe acknowledged in a recent interview with ESPN.com that the league office, at least in an exploratory fashion, has weighed expanding the dimensions of the court and the introduction of a 4-point shot.


I'm sure this has been posted elsewhere, but I don't value the opinions of non-Grizz fans.
