Move the team to seattle and rename them the sonics once the real sonics move to OKC.

Michael Heisley is a moron. He should have never moved the Grizzlies out of Vancouver in the first place. Vancouver is a wealthy world class city that just needed some time to let the fan base grow. Its just absurd to not have a team here. Pleh!

Not really overpaid at a flat rate of 6.5 mil for the next couple years. Think of Nene, Gadzuric, Dampier, Diop. Big men are always more expensive.
Because some games he plays in he's good and can put up good numbers and then other games he plays like an absolute scrub and collects fouls and then sometimes Ivaroni just doesn't want to play him depending on the team he's playing.

Darko just turned 23 so there's some hope that he can gain some consistency and alter his game to the player/team he's matched up against.

I'm serious when I say that if Darko could gain some consistency he could have an Andrew Bogut-like breakout season.

They should have stayed in Vancouver, but in time Memphis will be just fine. it won't be until 2012 or so, but they'll be alright. Just like it has taken quite some time for Charlotte to become relevent in the NBA, it will take a similar amount of time for the Grizz to be legit.

Maybe Seattle could be a realistic option if the Sonics leave to OKC...If the Sonics don't move then the Grizz could consider OKC...I think Memphis is alright for now though.

For Memphis, this city needs the Tigers much more than this Grizzlies.

If they start winning, it could change.
