Default Spend Money

Do it soon to be Grizz GM!

Spend some cash...

It dont have to be Billups or Lewis. Bring Mo Williams, Charlie Bell, maybe Gerald Wallace. Get us a few pieces to go along side our team. Make a good draft pick then seal the deal with some nice sides of Free Agents.


Potential Lineup
PG Williams/Lowry
SG Miller
SF Gay
PF Gasol
C Oden

Other options include Durant instead of Oden and Wallace instead of Williams, but you get the point. SPEND SOME MONEY

I agree with the point at hand.We finally have money and the fans are restless.Get a new point guard preferably young.That can play.Also a good swing man.

Welcome back J-Mem! Where you been?
Mo Williams at PG would be great.
If the griz get either Oden or durant and get
a top notch PG they will be one helluva
exciting team to watch then.
Also cant forget T. Kinsey. He won western
conference ROM for March.
Mo Williams/Lowry PG
Kinsey/Miller SG
Gay/Warrick SF
Gasol/Warrick/Johnson PF
Oden/Gasol C
or
Mo Williams/Lowry PG
Kinsey/Gay SG
Durant/Miller SF
Warrick/Johnson PF
Gasol C

im not sure i agree. while it would be good to get two FA's, i think the growth of gay, kinsey, and lowry, along with our draft will secure the next few years for the grizz.

we may not be the most improved team NEXT year, but we will improve and i believe a good offseason could put us in the elite teams in the West within 2 or 3 seasons.

I disagree. That would be a friggin awesome lineup. It may take them a couple of months to gel but after some experience playing together they could get to the playoffs again and finally win a game. Need to get a
decent coach who knows defense as well as offense. But with a superstar like Oden or Durant this team could turn around like Cleveland with Lebron.

Wow this was the same thing said like three years ago.When all we added to our 50 win team was brian cardinal.Everyone felt that being a year older and more time to gel,we would be even better.Wrong I agree in the long run that line up would be good.I mean in the next season.Pau is only gonna stay if there is an immediate addition of an actual A or B talented player.Meaning mo williams,billups,vincanity,rashard lewis.Some one with some pop to there game.

so ur saying the addition of mo williams and durant/oden is the same as the
the addition of a brian cardinal??? how come in this thread ur saying they
could be just good and the other thread they coulb be dominant if they picked up a PG free agent and a top pick?

No you misunderstand.The addition of williams and oden or durant is better then cardinal.Im saying that a few years ago everyone was saying addition by subtraction.I knew that was garbage.The other guy poindexter is saying that with the same guys we have and these two new players,that after a few months they could gel in time and be awesome.Im saying thats not true.I personally believe that team cohesion and coaches dont play as big a role as people believe.I see teams that are extremely talented that dont know eachother beat down other teams of friends that have been playing together for years.Im not saying good coaching is not needed and that teams dont need to to be friendly.Im saying that talent will win 8/10 times.I think every year for a team to improve they need to add 4 to 5 new faces.This includes draft picks.You always need new blood.Even when san antonio won the title they added new players.Oden and williams will help but it wont be enough.
