    Yeah you noticed that too. S.O.S. Each year. But I do like NAW and I like Willie.

    Trying to get Beal here now is nearly impossible on the trade machine without giving up Zion or Ingram. Griff. really screwed up our chance at Beal.

    Griff has been awesome at acquiring assets, only to squander them on role players. I don't really know how we improve this team drastically outside the draft.

    They are an easy team to root for... still don't know why they traded val for adams and draft compensation since he is the perfect fit with ja and jjj... minus the Williams pick, they have hit on most of their picks and have a good coach to go along... ja is such a special talent though that elevates his team and you can easily see how good he is as a leader at such a young age...

    The explanation I saw from most Grizz fans I followed was basically that Jonas was too good and too vocal, and that he was basically just allowing the youth to rely on him too much as a leader, stunting their development a little. Therefore trading him away made them worse as a team, as he was their best player, but is a long-term move to allow Ja and co to really blossom into those leadership positions.

    What does Zion > Ja mean? It hasn’t been mentioned in this thread, but I have seen it running wild on Twitter, and I’m not following the basis for the reasoning.
    If you Jimmer it, they will come.

    I'd much rather my team follow Ja's lead than Zion's. The most important item in a box score for a leader is not points scored...not assists....not rebounds....not shooting %. The most important item in a box score is your name. I want nobody on the Pelicans to follow Zion's lead.

    Three years...three injuries (it's really five years if you count Duke and his last year at Spartanburg Day).

    RELIABILITY IS A PREREQUISITE FOR GREATNESS!!

    I'm man enough to admit it, MAC was right!!!

    Maravich and Zion's to score were/are almost unearthly. That doesn't necessarily translate into them being championship caliber basketball players.

    In theory Zion is the the better talent, but Ja imo is a better player because his play style contribute to more winning games (lead guard controlling pace, leader, healthy). To be fair I don't think no one seen this version of Zion in the NBA when the two were being compared so I can't fault new Orleans for taking him because it's been fools gold.

    There was plenty of people saying his weight and height (or like thereof) would be a problem. Not to mention, he was damaged goods.

    MAC was right; but no one listened.

    Don't recall MAC ever saying we should take Ja over Zion.

    myself and one other person had the guts to say we would draft ja over zion....my main reason was that i wanted my dominate player at the 1-3 and the team can get better overall by addition by subtraction by getting everything we can from memphis and giving up lonzo....i just figure it would have been easy to build around jrue,, ingram and ja with all of the picks we would have had from memphis and lakers at that time....

    im going to die on the hill of we should had drafted ja over zion

    Didn't realize you guys made this thread. Please don't delete anything. This is going to be bumped for amusement constantly.
    Some of you have never spent a magical platonic night being serenaded by your Alchemist quoting, piano playing, hipster boss and it shows.

    I wouldn't mind having buddy hield over here despite him being overpaid... he would be nice coming off the bench with naw at the point to get us some fire power and more dead eye shooters. The question is do we value the expiring contracts of sato and hart more for other trade options and or flexibility or are we reluctant to get attached to buddy's overpaid contract.

    We also still have a 17m tpe which we could use to target someone within that range to help this team.

    We are not getting anywhere with this lineup.
