Toronto Jackets

Is this really Toronto?

Jarrett Jack Press Conference Pt. 3 - July 21, 2009

Truck Crash releases 12 million bees

I am really excited to watch my Tech fellows in Canada play this year. I don't know what the hell is going on with the Grizzlies. They are stocking up on UConn Huskies. Why? But Detroit did too, by bringing in Ben Gordon and Charlie V in one swipe to join Rip Hamilton.

We might have 4 Huskies on our team before preseason. Meanwhile my other favorite Tech baller is on Washington Wizards with former Grizzly 6th man of the Year and Rookie of the Year, Mike Miller33.

So between the Raptors, Wizards, and Celtics (the local team) – I might not be watching all 82 Grizz games next season...

It should be a thrilling year:

Are you there God?

In other news, the Grizz let their most senior member, 2005-2006 first round draft pick, Hakim Warrick go for nothing. Just in case you were wondering, the owner snuffed out any delusional hopes that we'd be filling his or the rest of the empty roster spots with anybody of significance in a statement to the Commercial Appeal on the same day.

Hopefully something good happens but for now we look set to play a good 85% of the games next season.

  • Grizzlies' Zach Randolph Joins Young and Hungry – He rode in like a Texas wind, took the east bound train.

    Randolph said. “I just need to be a little rough and practice hard. That’s what got me better. I was practicing against Rasheed Wallace, Scottie Pippen, Dale Davis, Arvydas Sabonis every day. They pushed me around, and that’s how I got better.”

    Yes, that could make you pretty tough.

    My favorite summer moves:

    1. Sheed Boston Celtics

    2. Ron Ron Lakers

    3. Vinsanity Magic

    4. Jarrett Jack Raptors

    5. Mike Miller Wizards

    6. Courtney Lee Nets

    7. Ben Gordon Pistons

    8. Anthony Parker Cavaliers

    9. Trevor Ariza Rockets

    10. Allen Iverson? Grizzlies

    Dishonorable Mention: Darko to Knicks, CharlieV to Pistons, Shaq Moon to Cavs, Bass and Barnes to Magic, McDyess, Haislip, and Jefferson to Spurs, Hedo to Raps, Sean May to Kings, QRoss, Marion, and Greg Buckner to Mavs, Afflalo to Denver, Dhantay Jones and Earl Watson to Indiana, Foye and Sam Cassell to Wizards, Madsen to Clippers, Frye to Suns, Crawford to Hawks, Songalia to TPups.

    Zach Randolph

    Darko for Randolph is something I wanted last year and I'm glad it finally got done. New York got what they wanted, LA got what they wanted, and we got something interesting to work with.

    As much as I want to celebrate and bark and growl intimidatingly… the rational side kicks in. We got rid of Pau Gasol for nothing and replaced him with a player with similar contract, but not the skills, and far worse track record.

    This may have been the official passing of the torch by the Clippers to Memphis for "Worst Franchise In The NBA."

    And David Lee is still homeless. What up wit dat? Grizzlies seem to just be a dumping ground for other teams. How many bad players did we take last year that never played a game for us? We helped out Miami, Orlando, Houston, Lakers (again), Sixers, and who else? Though we did punish Portland by signing Darius Miles. That was using your sack, Grizz! By taking these bad contracts though we're just not helping ourselves. Buying out all those guys for Zach? Antoine Walker, Aaron McKie, Steve Francis, Shaun Livingston, Chris Mihm, Adonal Foyle, man, I could go on all day.

    much more to come! ^_^
