The potential of this team is sky high and I'm confident that we will definitly make the playoffs within the next 5 years.

As long as Gasol, Rudy Gay, and hopefully Mike Conley stay in place... Im sure that the Grizz will have much to be excited about for the next handfull of years.

Also Mike Miller, Kyle Lowry, Darko and Hakim Warrick are going to be great additions to the team. Just thinking about this team is making me really really excited for the upcoming season.

Hakim Warrick for sure, I really enjoy his game. But Darko is a bit of a wild card for me... he could be ready to take the next level and increase his Center role or regress and never actually live up to his starting role

I'm sure Darko will be fine. He's going to playing along side one of the best PF's in the game today. And if Darko doesn't step up I'm sure Pau can just slap him upside the head.

Thats rather true... having two seven footers in the middle that have versatility is something to look forward to.

Plus, it may be useful for Darko that in that same middle Gasol will be receiving a monumental amount of the attention.

Last season our two weakest areas where the center and point guard position. I feel we have completely took care of the PG spot and we could use a backup for the center spot because Swift just isn't gonna cut it.

Yeah the grizz could surely do better than Swift.. but I dont think they have many options at this point....

Yeah there arn't many options at the moment but this problem will have to be tackled as soon as posible. Swift isn't great to have as a backup but he will do for now.

Exactly. If there was someone on the market then I'd be hoping the Grizzlies would pursue him, but if Swift is the only thing we can do then we're going to have to settle for it.

I'm not too confident we'll make the playoffs this season. We'll definitly improve and can make a push for the playoffs but I see us just missing out. Though I hope I'm wrong. Within the next 5 years we'd of made the playoffs atleast twice, maybe 3 or 4 times but I see us missing them this year but not by much.

Ok I understand now.I thought you meant we would not make the playoffs until five years for now.Yeah I agree that there is a small if any chance at us going this year.

Atleast we have Juan Carlos now, which will definitly keep Pau motivated. It's also shown Pau that we don't want to lose him and that he is our franchise player.
