Sign andre miller and allow mayo to grow as a player instead of taking a step back. With Iverson, Gay, and Randolph we would sell alot of tickets but no one would pass the ball.

Hmm Andre Miller. I like the ideal of a Miller signing as well. I want a reason to go to a couple of games this year.

I agree the idea of having iverson is tempting. But I dont think he helps us on the court as much as he helps the front office sell more tickets.

Yeah, and besides we don't need A.I. to sell tickets. We need to start putting up W's. Andre Miller will help bring us some of those. Even if we have to have Conley come off the bench.

I'm pretty sure Hollins will not let anyone come in and compete with Conley for the starting job; he loves the guy. I'm willing to give him a full season as a starter to prove he is worth that trust. The only concern I have is the lack of ball movement on the team.

Not to bash Greg Oden, but Conley has had more flashes of being a solid professional at this point than Oden, even though he was seen as lucking out into his draft position thanks to Oden.

I may be forgetting other point guards in that '07 draft, but I'd take Conley over Stuckey. He's really promising now with his 3-point shot developing. (the only complaint I have is how many he airballs, while still somehow shooting a good percentage on them)

Exactly, wins brings fans and more ticket sales.

Thumbs up Re: iverson wants to play for memphis rumor

I Want A.i. to Play in Memphis But If He Even Plays He Playing On The Bench Or Share Minutes With Conley It Might Even Help Conley Cuz A.I. Was A Good PG Scoring Wise U Might See A Bit Of A.I. In Conley In Couple Years If He Comes.


Memphis Grizzlies Iverson+Conley = Scoring Combo 1 2 Punch

On paper it makes sense. But because iverson has said that he never wants to play off the bench again, it kinda limits the combo of guards.
