Ah you beat me to it. Just saw it on the local news station.

This is a great first step in improving the grizzlies. Now the griz need to hire mo cheeks or eddie jordan. That would be a huge step in the right direction. I would love to get cheeks he is a players coach and knows how to deal with all types of players. THey should hire him and show the fans that their serious about winning.

I don't think we should get rid of Conley just yet. Let's see what coach we get and see how Conley opperates under the new coach, then when it's closer to the deadline, we might be able to shop him around. Though I doubt he will get traded and honestly, it wouldn't upset me too much if he didn't get traded.

Here's what I posted in the main forum about what coach we should go for.....

Quote:
I'm glad he's gone. Terrible as a head coach and wanted to run a system that really didn't work for the team, but he insisted to keep running it. I hope we can now get a defensive minded head coach, we already have Kevin O'Neill who is good assistent coach and is defensive minded, if we had a head coach who would actually make the team play some defense, then I would be a happy man.

I also can't wait until Darko comes back, we are really missing him right now. Who'd of thought it? We're actually missing Darko. He was playing great before his injury and was a great player to have coming off the bench and playing some solid defense behind Gasol.

Ivaroroni could have been the reason of Conley's struggles and lack of production. Also, another reason the griz have lost so many games to me is that they miss Darko more than they think they do. I mean, before he went down, he was probably playing the best ball in his career.

There is no way Iavoroni was the reason Conley is terrible. Conley was drafted entirely too high. Iavoroni had nothing to do with how bad Memphis has been this season, he had them off to a decent start and then began letting a really young group learn to play together. Of course there were going to be growing pains!

Maybe we should give Conley a chance but if we really have the chance to get a better player in Sessions for Conley alone why not do it? Sessions is a great playmaker and more vocal than Conley and can consistently score. He'd make us alot better.

Haha, first game without Iavaroni and Conley scores 18 points. He's also been averaging 12 points over the last 4 games. Let's hope he can keep this up.

He came out blazing. He had 10 in the first quarter. We need for him to continue to be aggressive like this.

Mid to late second rounder at best? What the hell are you talking about. Players take time to develop. There are only a certain few players that are immediately succesful. This is the problem with our fan base, they are to impatient.

Please explain to me why he suck. He is like barely over 20 years old and is avg almost 10ppg 5apg and hits a fair ammount of threes. He is not great but he shows alot of promise.

Name your favorite poing guards. ANd im sure almost none of them were great from the start.
