I honestly don't think its style of play, but more so the personnel. The Grizz are still more built for the playoffs than the regular season. There are teams that still play slow, but we probably had one of the worst model for success. Chris Wallace did a terrible job once constructing the core of surrounding them with quality pieces. It makes me believe he truly didn't know what he was doing when he constructed the core, he just lucked up.

1) the team was about to give up on Conley before Hollins saved the day. We were seriously about to trade Conley for Sessions back in 2008 or 2009.
2) i don't think anyone expected Marc to be a DPOTY and one of the best centers in the game when they traded Pau for him and scraps
3) adding Zbo was just a desperate move that worked out
4) adding TA (who was a role player on a championship) was never expected to be who he was today

I look at our FO like I look at OKC's. Presti still getting credit for what he did back 2009 (which was the last significant move he made drafting Harden), but failed to make the team better by letting Scott Brooks stay far too long and simply cutting payroll on a team that could've had 3 superstars (plus injuries had a lot to do with it as well). However, OKC has youth on their side and as long as KD and Russ stay, they are elite for another 5 years minimum. Memphis didn't have youth on their side because at the time the core was built, our best players were closing in on 30.

The Grizz had 2.5 years to surround Conley, TA, Zbo and Marc with better role players, shooting and another playmaker after trading Rudy. But, its just been patches and band aids. Now, the team is just very old. We've traded away all of our 1st round picks for average to below average players or even trading them away to cut additional salary. We haven't developed a draft pick since Mike Conley.

^^^ Agree. I think a Grizz team built around Marc and Z-Bo (to a lesser extent) could be a viable contender, if they had consistent shooting, athletic wings. But they've never been able to find that. In theory, guys like Lee and Green were good pick ups, but they just haven't played well enough to allow the Grizz to get over the hump. And at this point, it looks like it may be too late.

Yep.

Our deepest team was the 2011-12 team (the year ZBo was hurt and we collapsed in Game 1 vs the Clippers). That team probably had the most overall talent with Gay, OJ, Cunningham, Speights, Pondexter, along with our starters. The one thing that team was missing was a true backup PG, which we had Gilbert Arenas laugh.gif . As bad as OJ became during his final years as a Grizz, we have yet to bring in better talent than both OJ and Rudy since we traded them away.

Lamb is third in true shooting percentage and offensive rating, fifth in effective field goal percentage, and has a 30.2 PER that would be third if he played enough minutes. And a respectable 101 defensive rating.

Per 36: 24, 6, 3, 1, and 2.

Pretty good first four games as a free man.

You got -

Doc, who is also the GM for the Clippers.
Byron
Fish
J-Kidd
Gentry
Casey
Hoillins
Sam Mitchell (granted, he's only the HC now because Flipped passed, but still)

When you consider that there are only 30 NBA head coaching jobs available, 8/30 doesn't seem that terrible to me and doesn't suggest black coaches are disappearing.
You forgot Lebron. Or are we counting him as a GM?
