These are dark days at Fastbreak Breakfast, as the Memphis Grizzlies are spiraling out of control (losers of 13 of 14, 18 of 21, 24 of 31, etc.). The joy of finding Jaren Jackson Jr. in the draft has been cut with the bitterness of losing. The previously infallible “as long as Mike and Marc are healthy…” maxim has been disproved, and now the franchise is staring into the abyss. Tasked with a likely total rebuild, fans sit horrified knowing the the frequently criticized front office who dug the hole is now seemingly entrusted to dig out of it.
And as much as we understand that it is imperative to find out what kind of assets could be acquired by shipping out Conley and Gasol, we disagree that they absolutely must be sold for parts. This is not the Tyreke Evans Situation from last trade deadline. (Yes, the situation that was completely bungled and resulted in no trade or incoming picks at all).
So on a brand new episode, we discuss what offers we would accept, which scenarios where keeping one or both makes sense, and what teams we would prefer our beloved player end up on.
- Is Most Improved Player the NBA’s most forgettable award?
- Apparently no one ever assists James Harden. Is that actually impressive?
- What did the Pacers do to deserve so much horrible luck?
- Which NBA player would we like to use as our protagonist in Red Dead Redemption 2?
