College stats   Michael Jordan:  17.7 PTS, 5.0 RBS, 1.8 AST, 1.7 STL, 0.7 BLK Buddy Hield: 17.4 PTS, 5.0 RBS, 1.9 AST, 1.1 STL, 0.3 BLK   Not saying Hield will be Michael Jord

Disagreeing on their value is fine, but calling for a veto is ridiculous. 

droppable with Jam Green back in town

So it says green is back this Sunday. Any effect on JJJ?

I mean...is there anything green does JJJ doesn't do better? He's also years younger with untapped upside. I see no reason why green should really have any impact other than if JJJ is in foul trouble.

If they intend to tank yes, otherwise no. JJJ can produce in limited minutes anyway. 

Memphis isn't talking as long as gasol and Conley are healthy. It just isn't happening and they will continue to grind and compete. JJJ is a big party of what they do and how they have been successful. Hey will continue to have a big role regardless of starting or off the bench. I would imagine they keep JJJ a starter.

If they start bringing him off the bench, and Green does decently enough to keep the PF spot, i'm trading JJJ ( non-dynasty ).  It was mentioned above, Conley and Gasol won't stand for tanking, and if it gets close to that situation in Memphis, they'll immediately demand a trade. It's like a 34 year old woman being in a relationship and the man doesn't wanna have kids.  She's outta there cuz that clock is ticking.


  Basically, they won't tank...they're good enough to make the playoffs.  I don't think JJJ loses his starting spot with the potential he's shown, but I'll be keeping a close eye on it, and making a move within a week if Green fits the starting unit.

Marc gasol will most definitely have maintenance days, developing the young core is important and if they want to make any noise while Gasol and Conley are in the cockpit , they’ll have to develop JJJ and The brooks brothers. Unfortunately Dillon got hurt ? but they need their SG situation fixed and they’ll be a contender for sure with gasol and JJJ In the frontcourt. Conley , either of the brooks, + a defensive versatile SF, like siakam or finney smith, jamychal coming off the bench with Mack. is it possible that jamychal plays SF??
