Oh ok. I understand.

Now, regarding the game last night. Memphis, once again, proves that they suck in the 2nd half of a game last night. This is getting pretty pathetic now, I'm assuming that Memphis are now tanking for a better pick, it would make sense, because they isn't much to battle for now, apart from a better position in the lottery.

Uh, now I'm really hating the Pau trade. He's just having his way with the Mavericks today. Oh well, we tanked and got Timmeh, so we're not perfect either.

I think that you are right. I am expecting the Grizzlies to tank the rest of the season because quite frankly, what do they have to play for? Pride? Please they tanked last season so its not like that is a problem for them.

The Grizzlies are going to go into full blown tank mode soon, if they aren't already in it.

Yup. I don't mind if we're going to tank now. What's going to annoy me is that we will have a great chance of getting the 1st - 3rd pick, but we'll most likely end up with a pick worse than last year.

Can a franchise be more frustrating than the Grizzlies? Maybe New York but it seems they only need to fire Zeke to rise again, while here I can not see a light at the end of the tunnel.

Definitly frustrating to watch. This team had (and still has) plenty of talent to be at a higher seed. Before Tarence Kinsey was waived, this team had enough talent to challenge for the 8th-10th seed, I honestly believe that.

What went wrong? Ivaroni wanting to play a run and gun style of basketball. Ivaroni, himself, seems to be a nice guy and well rounded coach, I just feel that his approach to this team has been wrong and calculated incorrectly.

Now we are tanking the season and trying to get a better chance of getting that 1st pick. Do I mind? Not really, because that means we can get another piece that hopefully will help this team in the long run. But it still annoys me that we are losing games we should be winning. Had Ivaroni came into Memphis with a solid idea of making this team run plays, getting the ball into the post and swinging the ball around perimeter, then I feel we would have a couple more W's racked up in the column. Oh...and before I forget, DEFENSE, we need to play it, we can't expect to try and just simple out score the other, it won't work.
