    Yeah, you're right.

    BTW, I should have been using green throughout a lot of this thread. I don't really think he would be a good fit here under any coach that I would want to coach here due to the points brought up by KStat.
    With a crappy team like this, the last thing you worry about is that the two players play the same position, we need every position.

    Im not saying that he is a post player, Im just saying that he is a better finisher around the rim, either trough off drives like you said, or lay ups, things that Danny has issues with
    Yeah, but that doesn't really make him equipped to play power forward.

    For what it's worth, I don't think Rudy Gay is on the trading block, and I'd be fairly shocked to see him actually get dealt. Seems like trade deadline nonsense to me.

    This is from the esteemed Chad Ford of the Murphy to the Cavs rumors, right? How can it not be true?

    it is possible, remember the time this team(the grizz) traded Paul Gasol for K Brown and pick, it could happen.

    No way Memphis deals Rudy Gay while in playoff hunt he is their most clutch player, and they have one of the best starting 5's in the NBA but have next to no bench at all, Every one of trade talks I have heard with Memphis has them dealing one of their 3 first round picks next year for expiring contracts and not moving any bodies.

    Chad Ford is not the only one talking about this, I asked some other guy on ESPN yesterday and he answered the same thing.

    Yeah, you left out that they also got Marc Gasol in that deal, and he is pretty damn good.

    I'm not saying that it isn't possible, I just don't think it will happen. I'd wager that the Grizzlies will make a move to shore up their bench. The Ronnie Brewer rumors make much more sense to me.

    I know they got the other Gasol, he was more like a trow in, is kind of like the pacers sending the rights of Stanko or whatever his name is and this guy becomes a good player, they did not know what kind of player he was going to be in the NBA.

    No he's who Memphis wanted in the deal, he played HS ball in Memphis and was a Tennessee Mr Basketball, was his EURO leagues MVP, and contributor in ESP international team.

    Sarunas was a big name in europe too, that does not mean anything until they play against NBA players.

    Um, he is Pau's brother. Pau's play had already translated pretty well. No, Marc is not nearly at Pau's level, but doing a comparison made that decision pretty cut and dried IMO.

    just because they are bothers does not mean that they are similar, just look at Blake Griffin and his brother, not everybody can play in the NBA, in this case Im sure that the Grizz scouts knew him and decided to pull the trigger and also J West wanted to give a gift to his Lakers before moving on

    Joe Dumars must have been taking Jedi mind trick classes over the summer.
    Clearly The Force has let him down by allowing him to sign Charlie V and Ben Gordon to those deals. Maybe he should consider The Dark Side?

    No green required there.

    No, the comparison only showed that Marc could play somewhat as well as Pau, which made him a significantly better risk coming from Europe than a lot of other young prospects might have been at the time. I would not be surprised if Pau wasn't seriously consulted by West about his brother before pulling the trigger on that trade, and he likely trusted Pau's judgement as much as anything.

    Oh, come on. Dumars could never have ended up with Rasheed Wallace virtually for free had he not already been a long standing member of the Dark Side.

    I saw nothing wrong with either deal at the time and I still don't. We'd be so much worse off right now without Charlie V. I'm not going to blame Duamrs for V and GOrdon being hurt.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Dumars gave up the pick that he got from Milwaukee in the Rodney White trade. He traded that to Atlanta for Rasheed.

    That pick ended up getting Atlanta Josh Smith, so it wasn't nearly as lopsided as people make it. Obviously a great trade for the Hawks, but even better for the Pistons since it won them a championship (and very nearly another one the next year).

    Someone from the distant past here used to say there are cookies here on the Dark Side. I've been here a while now, and I STILL can't find them, despite my bestest efforts.

    Do you know where they might be?

    He played 2 years in Memphis in HS and was around the team all the time, he was on Pau's teams in international ball, and played 5 years in the ACB league and finished as the Most Valuable Player, its not like its some random guy off the streets they knew more about what Marc than any team in the league and not to mention he was already considered to be one of the better players in Europe.

    Plumlee reminds me of a young Dale Davis. Good rebounding and he contests shots well on defense and his offensive game is very raw just like DD's was coming out of college.

    Now I haven't seen him play enoughbut he possibly fill a PF role like Josh smith does on the hawks?? Or is his defense not good at all?? Just wondering what type of player he is.... Because there are mutliple guys that play the PF position that shouldn't be for what that position used to mean

    Josh Smith is an elite rebounder and shot-blocker. He can defend his position better than most guys 4-5 inches taller.

    Gay is neither a shot blocker nor an elite rebounder.

    Gay employs a very blasť attitude on defense. He's not even close to the defender that Josh Smith is.

    His defense is very lacking, but people said the same thing about Pau when he was there too. THings changed the second he switched teams.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.
