I watch way more college basketball than most of you and I had to look up where Wade played. Considering he's a year removed from college, that's pretty damning. I would pass. They probably got tricked into drafting him because he measured well and put up decent stats in the SEC, which absolute trash for college hoops... that's what happens when football is 1, 2, and 3 at those schools

Bring Briggs back and let him do it. I'm just a placeholder.

Not sure what Briggs did but he is the only poster that offered to treat everyone here to a Knicks game a while back. Seems like that should be a get out of jail free card. I know some guys went.

i think its an atrocity that briggs was booted from this forum, absolute atrocity. it was largely due to his posting in the OT threads, which is why i said a few times that those threads do no good to a basketball forum. because of someones political views we lost a great (albeit annoying at times) basketball poster. this forum is worse off without briggs.

and yes crush, briggs did do that and i was one of those who went.. briggs also helped out a poster or two when they needed it.

I'm going to push back on your post. Everyone has a responsibility to post in a way that is respectful to others. Every once in a while any of us can get out of hand, emotional, flippant, sarcastic, use colorful language, misunderstood whatever, it doesn't take too much to read over what you have personally written, read some of the feedback, and take a step back and correct, re-word, engage where appropriate.

nyk4ever, if you don't care for the OT threads, skip over them, they are easily identifiable. During the offseason we do let a few more of the pertinent topics float into the Knicks forum, it's going to stay that way, during the season we will manage them differently.

i've been debating whether or not i want to respond this, mostly because i like you and andrew and i more than respect and appreciate you guys for running this site as long as you have.. it's honestly a thankless job. you guys give us an outlet to talk KNICKS and we've grown quite the community here. but i guess when it comes down to it, as a guy who'se been here a really damn long time, i just don't understand why there is a need to have political threads on a basketball forum? there are so many places where someone can go and talk about that stuff, it doesn't have to be here. i think those types of discussions typically do not bring out the best in posters, without a doubt. whether anyone agrees with what briggs says or not (and i've been one of his biggest critics and more times than not have bitched him out for being self-aggrandizing) the guy brought some serious basketball knowledge to this forum. i just don't think its fruitful to ban a poster such as briggs for his comments in political OT topics. when we're losing posters because of their thoughts in politics threads, i think we are cutting our nose to spite our face. briggs was a big part of this forum and we shouldn't lose his posting due to his comments on politics.

there we go - you know where i stand. whatever you decide, i respect it and ill keep quiet on this from here on out, but at least i get my feelings out there.

I think it's a problem with the Grizzlies player personnel and scouting departments. They're starting to get a bad reputation in the player development department.


Others selected early who did not continue with the team include Tony Wroten (2012), Xavier Henry (2010) and Greivis Vasquez (2010). All three played just one season with Memphis.

That doesn't include the guys they just gave up on who went on to become player, or the hasheem thabeet disaster.

Always... always remember: Less is less. More is more. More is better and twice as much is good too. Not enough is bad, and too much is never enough except when it's just about right. - The Tick

I think they'll(Memphis) end up trading him for a 2nd round pick or player etc.--I doubt he is released. There are a lot of physical things there you like at 6-4 200. He hasnt proven he can shoot at the nBA level BUT he was a good 3 point shooter in college. He seems like a guy who could get better--but we have significant investment in that already?

Right now we have Baker Frank Sessions Jack and Burke --tremendous log jam.

We have some commitment to Baker, at least for this year but he's gotta shoot it better. Frank is looking at 20 mins a game unless he immediately sparkles like KP did, but one cant expect that. Sessions and Jack are the ultimate stop gap place holders... I think there are definitely PG minutes that can be won here, especially if you are a younger player.

To add my 2 cents before we drop this topic. I don't think it mattered if it was political talk or basketball talk. I'm pretty sure the issue with the mods leading to suspension had more to do with failing to listen and follow the rules. Many people spoke within the political threads expressing different views. So can't blame the political threads. Just like if debates got heated talking about basketball. And users didn't follow the rules or listen to the mods during bball debates leading to continual ugly exchanges. Briggs got put in timeout due to his own decisions. Now he's back and we can all move forward with the new season.

Were only at 16. I guess the bottom line is we are a rebuilding franchise and these types of moves make sense. When he came into the league--I thought hed be a poor mans Westbrook. The schmeal here is what can we offer--nothing in 2018 1st or 2nd rd. The best we can do is the 2020 2nd rd or a player swap with --say Oquinn.
