On another Grizzlies-related note, I didn't know Junior Harrington was 6'4". His deceptive name had me thinking he was small for a point.

If you thought you've seen everything regarding homerism, read some Spanish papers...

Nah, you just a hat3r, Calderon really is the third best point guard in the NBA (I have read that, seriously) and Navarro + Pau = Dinasty. :

Solid addition for Memphis.

The major reason he was considered a bust is because he was drafted into a no-win situation. He came into a Detroit team that really didn't need him and played for a coach that almost never gives rookies/young players any pine. He averaged, what, five minutes a game in Detroit? The only reason Brown played so many young players in NY is because almost every player was a rookie or still very young. Darko had no chance. But once he got to Orlando, he was able to do something. Averaged 2 blocks/game his first year with Orlando. Guys like him need playing time to show what they can do, and he'll get that in Memphis.

Gasol, Milicic, Gay, Miller, Conley. Interesting young guys like Kinsey, Lowry and Warrick off the bench.

Pretty much guaranteed that I'll go watch the Wolves play Memphis this season.

He looks like this 16 year old punk who balls it up at the gym. He needs to lose the peach fuzz.

If it's photoshopped, it's a heckuva job.

As for Darko...

Imagine Detriod with 'Melo or D-Wade!

Wow 275? I didn't think he was that hefty.

And yeah, he has a little bit of size and weight on the kid at the gym. But their faces do like very much alike, right down to the 16 year old peach fuzz...

Yeah that's the official weight since he signed in Memphis. Darko's got a lot of bulk to him (weighs more than Dwight now), so if he gets minutes and stays out of foul trouble, he'll be a beast with Pau drawing attention from under the basket.

Eh, we'll see. I'm not sold on Darko being more than OK at best.

Though the way Orlando got rid of him...to sign RASHARD FREAKING LEWIS NUMBER TWO OPTION ON A BAD SONICS TEAM to a max money contract?

That is a nice lineup. Will it make the playoffs?

Back when the Grizz were suceeding, they had great chemistry, good team basketball. If they can find that again I think they could make it.

If only we could swap a few frachises from east to west to maket hings more interesting...
