A collection of memorable Dynasty and Franchise threads.

Yea I've been waiting on cocobee for a while now. He said he was going to post his sliders and he never did. I might have to ask match_66 for his sliders since he tweaked he's and his stats are realistic. I really didn't turn down the cpu shooting sliders yet, but for some reason they have been missing more shots. I'm going to see what I can do.

Thanks for all the comments everybody and I think I will end up keeping my dynasty now :wink: Expect more updates Friday (Y)

I wouldn't have made these trades if the Grizzlies weren't trying to do these deals in real life. The Grizzlies had 4 PG's and they wanted to trade one anyway so they traded Watson (to get rid of one of the PG's), Wright (who they didn't need after they got Dampier) and Battier (who Mullin loves from the Warriors). That's as realistic as I can get because the Grizzlies we're offering the Warriors Miller and Wright for Dampier. So I don't call that unrealistic. As for the Artest for Bonzi deal, the Pacers have been asking about Bonzi since the nba draft and they would deal Artest for him along with other players so that's not realistic either. If I make a trade, it would have something to do with real life issues...


Okay, i see. But yours is exicting. I mean, I read your stuff from start to finish. Even when you were with the Nuggets.

SbHZmAFia wrote:Now, I don't even know if I should continue this dynasty because it seems like most people like the 95/96 dynasties better and every since cocobee's dynasty left, nobody would really visit the page.


Like I said before, i visit yours, and continue this dynasty cause it's nice to see the old teams play that's why i think most people like them. But sorry if i said anything to hurt you man.

Houston @ Memphis
November 28, 7:30 PM
Rockets, 8-6; Grizzlies, 9-4.


Rivalry Heads to Memphis

After 6 days, the Rockets collide with the Grizzlies once again

Image
By Ronald Tillery
November 28, 2004

The Rockets haven't forgot about their embarrasing loss against the Grizzlies that happened less than a week ago. "It has been haunting us for awhile now and I'm pretty sure that the team has been looking for revenge," Rockets forward Maurice Taylor said.

The Grizzlies have been on fire as of late and this matchup should be a fight to the finish. Houston wants to win this game more than anything right now, while Memphis is blowing out opponents. Houston has won their last 2 games. They won those games by a combined total of 3 points.

Tonight's game will be the 4th game of the Rockets road trip. They are 2-1 on the rad trip thus far, and things are starting to look up to them now.

Key Matchup:
Tracy McGrady vs. Ron Artest
The last time these two met, Artest showed McGrady the meaning of defense. McGrady was unable to have a big game. Artest has been playing excellent defense during the Grizzlies 3 game winning streak. McGrady wants to be more of a force in tonight's game than what he was before.

Probable Starters:
Rockets
C-Yao Ming- (1.7 BPG)
PF-Maurice Taylor- (5.1 RPG)
SF-Jim Jackson- (12.5 PPG)
SG-Tracy McGrady- (22.5 PPG)
PG-Mark Jackson- (6.7 APG)


Grizzlies
C-Erick Dampier- (1.8 BPG)
PF-Pau Gasol- (12.2 RPG)
SF-James Posey- (15.9 PPG)
SG-Ron Artest- (19.9 PPG)
PG-Jason Williams- (6.6 APG)


-Ronald Tillery: 555-5555

Rockets Took the Grizzlies to the Limit

Grizzlies crunchtime execution helped them to seal the game

Image
By Ronald Tillery
November 29, 2004

ImageRockets-117
ImageGrizzlies-123 OT

Image
Tracy McGrady was on fire in last night's game with 38 points, but it wasn't enough of him in overtime

This game was a fight to the finish and neither team wanted to lose the game. The game was very close throughout each quarter as neither team led by no more than 2 points after each quarter. "This was an example of heart. Both teams played tremendous hard and they showed alot of heart out there tonight," President of Basketball Operations Jerry West said.

Jason Williams was having a terrible night, until late in the 4th quarter where he helped the Grizzlies make a serious comeback. With 1:09 left in regulation, Williams made a 3 pointer to close the Grizzlies gap to 105-101. Pau Gasol and Williams we're able to put pressure on Mark Jackson and forced him to turn the ball over. Jason picked the ball up and got an easy lay up to make the score 105-103.

On the Rockets next possession, Posey and Dampier ended up switching me which left Posey on Yao. Yao demanded the ball in the post as he had Posey on him. Posey flopped and the foul was called on Yao and Posey was able to get the offensive foul with 46.7 seconds. Jason Williams missed a jumper to tie the game with 26 seconds, but Artest was able to get the offensive board. He passed the ball out to Posey for the wide open 3, but he missed. Yao was able to grab the reound and was fouled with 19.3 seconds.

Grizzlies had 1 more foul to give, so they fouled Mark Jackson with 18.3 seconds. Jackson made both free throws with ease, and the Rockets led 107-103. The Grizzlies had 3 timeouts left so they used one to advance the ball up the court. James Posey inbounded the ball to Jason Williams, and Williams found an open Artest for a 3 pointer. Artest made the 3 with 14.2 seconds left to make the game 107-106.

Grizzlies fouled Mark Jackson again after Artest made a 3. Jackson was sent to the line to shoot 2 more FT's. The foul was committed on Williams which was his 6th foul and he was out of the game. Jackson the first free throw, but made the 2nd one. The Grizzlies put Mike Miller in for Williams and called a timeout to advance the ball with 13.6 seconds left. Artest had the ball at the top of the key. He called Dampier over to set a pick for him and Dampier rolled after setting the pick. Artest was able to bounce the ball to Dampier as he got an easy lay up from the pick and roll. The game was tied 108-108 with 6.3 secs. The Rockets didn't have any timeouts and McGrady was unable to make the halfcourt shot for the game winner.

Image
Jason Williams was able to score 12 of his 20 points in the 4th quarter and help bring the Grizzlies back against the Rockets

The Rockets were able to get the tip, but were unable to connect on their first FG attempt. The Grizzlies started to run and Posey got an easy dunk to start the OT period off. Artest was able to intercept a pass from Jackson and on the other end, he nailed a 3 to put the Grizzlies up 115-108. The Rockets were finally able to get on the board with as Weatherspoon made a leaner in the paint with 3:35 left in OT. They were still down 115-110. Yao Ming was forced to foul Artest with 44.4 seconds as the Grizzlies led 119-114. Artest made both FT's to put the Grizzlies up by 7. McGrady made a 3 with 30 seconds left, but the Rockets decided not to foul and the Grizzlies ran the clock out to 11.1 seconds when Dampier made a tipback dunk to seal the game.

Miller is now coming off the bench as a 6th man. After I traded for Artest I was going to start Posey and Artest at the SG and SF spot so Miller was left to be put on the bench. He is still doing well off the bench though.

Memphis @ Chicago
November 30, 6:00 PM
Grizzlies, 10-4; Bulls, 12-7.


Four Wins and Counting?

The Grizzlies could be in cruise control for the rest of the season

Image
By Ronald Tillery
November 30, 2004

Jerry West has done what many knew he would do when he came to Memphis. West orchestrated a winning team in Memphis. The Grizzlies are just getting started in their 2004-05 season, but they could be showing a little fury in their eyes.

"We want to win. We are the point now, where we think we can win a championship this season, but I'm not going speculate too much. We still have a long way to go," Posey said.

The Grizzlies have all the key components to a championship team. A star player, a leader, teamwork and depth. The Grizzlies go into the United Center tonight to face the rejuvenated Bulls who now have a winning record for the first time in many years. They are led by their center, Eddy Curry and rookie forward, Luol Deng. The duo has been able to put the Bulls 5 games over .500 and have them 4th in the Eastern Conference. "Both young players have took it upon themselves to help their team win and they are doing a good job of it," Assistant Coach Tony Barone Sr. from the Grizzlies said.

The Bulls are on a 2 game winning streak and were on a 6 game winning streak earlier in the season/ Since going 6-1, the Bulls have went 6-6 in the last 12 games.

Key Matchup:
James Posey vs. Luol Deng
Posey will matchup against a tough rookie in tonight's game. Deng can do it all on the court, but Posey will try to run Deng out the game. Deng will have to keep up with Posey's lightning quickness on fast breaks. Deng will try to put on a series of moves to shake Posey off of him.

Probable Starters:
Grizzlies
C-Erick Dampier- (1.9 BPG)
PF-Pau Gasol- (12.3 RPG)
SF-James Posey- (16.1 PPG)
SG-Ron Artest- (20.3 PPG)
PG-Jason Williams- (6.5 APG)


Bulls
C-Eddy Curry- (1.2 BPG)
PF-Tyson Chandler- (10.1 RPG)
SF-Luol Deng- (16.4 PPG)
SG-Ben Gordon- (11.2 PPG)
PG-Kirk Hinrich- (27-27 FT)


-Ronald Tillery: 555-5555

Grizzlies Recieve A Close Call

Another crunchtime performance from Jason Williams gave the Grizzlies their 5th straight win

Image
By Ronald Tillery
December 1, 2004

ImageGrizzlies-121
ImageBulls-115

Image
Dampier was able to post another double-double

The Grizzlies begin the month of December on a 5 game winning streak. Last night was a close call, but the game was decided by the play of the Grizzlies PG Jason Williams. Williams hit a series of 3 pointers during the final minutes of the game to put the Grizzlies within' 2 points. He was also able to make some clutch FT's down the stretch of the game.

James Posey had a great game during crunchtime as he nailed a 3 point shot with 30.2 seconds remaining in the game to make the score 119-115 and gave the Grizzlies a 4 point lead. Ben Gordon came down the floor to only miss a jumpshot. The Bulls we're then forced to foul Williams with 21 seconds. Williams made both FT's, and he sealed the game for the Grizzlies.

Despite the Bulls shooting 66% from the field and 55% from 3 point range, the Grizzlies still came out with the win by playing smart at the end of the game. "It was another one of those team efforts we put forth for us to win the game. We played down the stretch and the play of J.P. and Jwill were great in the final minutes of the game," Artest said.

Image
Crawford had an amazing game scoring 15 points and dishing out a career-high 18 asts

Posey had a tough time with the Bulls rookie Luol Deng, who ended up with 25 pts and 3 rebs in the game. He made a series of 3 pointers to keep the Bulls ahead in the 3rd quarter and part of the 4th quarter. Him and Ben Gordon each scored 25 points apiece. Williams posted a season-high 28 points in last night's game against the Bulls. "I have just been trying to do my best with the team during the streak. All I can say is that I'm doing what I have to do to make the team win," Williams said after the game.

The Grizzlies G/F Ron Artest will be featured on the cover of SLAM Magazine for this month issue and there will be an article about him and the Grizzlies. You will be able to see the article in tomorrow's issue of the Commercial Appeal in the Sports section.

Grizzlies Recieve A Close Call

Grizzlies player Ron Artest is recognized in SLAM Magazine for the month of December

Memphis Grizzlies guard/forward was on the front cover for SLAM Magazine for the month of December and there is alot to talk about in this article/interview with new Grizzlie Ron Artest.

Ron Artest:Bad Boy Gone Clean

By Khalid Salaam

Here is Mr. Trouble. The guy that nobody wants a piece and that nobody wants to handle. Well, we all know who I'm talking about, Ron Artest. Artest was the talk around the league about his attitude and all the technical fouls he racked up last season and the year before last.

He now has a new scenery and a new image. He was traded to the Memphis Grizzlies last month in a trade that included former Portland Trailblazers badboy Bonzi Wells who was sent to Indiana. Artest has loved the new scenery in Memphis so far, and every since he has arrived the Grizzlies hold a record of 6-1.

Not only on the defensive end has Artest contributed on, but the offensive end which he has been working on all summer long to improve his outside jump shooting. He has been assigned to the best scorers on each team since he joined the Grizzlies and he has done one hell of a job.

Image

He is averaging 20.3 ppg during this season and hasn't missed a beat since being traded from Indiana to Memphis. When asked about how he is adjusting to the environment in Memphis, he said, "The weather down here is very funny. One day it would be real hot and humid, then the next day it would be like in the 60's and it's a new scenery which is what I really wanted. Being up north where it was cold, just wasn't all for me because I wanted to be able to taste a different piece of the country".

Artest has been searching for a shoe contract from either AND1 or Team Jordan. He has looked at both companies, and he hasn't made a decision on which company he wants to be a part of. During the season, he has been wearin AND1's, but at times he would wear Jordans. "It's all in a matter of time. I will meet up with both companies again next weekend to get some more detail in the contract and then I will be able to make my decision in about 2-3 weeks. I'm not in a hurry to find a shoe deal, even though I feel that I deserve one," Artest said.

Since acquiring Artest, the Grizzlies have been looking to get a championship trophy knowing that they have most tools to winning the NBA Championship. There is still a long ride awaiting the Grizzlies and you can check on them throughout the rest of the season.


I would like to thank cklistie for making this professional cover for me. He did a great job on it, and since I'm not good with using photoshop, he came in to save the day. Thanks again cklistie (Y) :wink:

Philadelphia @ Memphis
December 4, 7:30 PM
Sixers, 8-9; Grizzlies, 11-4.


Grizzlies Ready for December

The Grizzlies head into December on a 5 game winning streak

Image
By Ronald Tillery
December 4, 2004

Coming into the season many people didn't think the Grizzlies would be holding an 11-4 record. "It has been quite a journey for us. As a team, we have came together and made our team a very tough squad to reckon with," Grizzlies G/F Mike Miller said.

The duo of Artest and Gasol have done some damage to some teams. Artest was featured on the front cover of SLAM Magazine for the month of December. He has been a true leader for the Grizzlies and he has boosted his scoring average since coming to Memphis.

Allen Iverson will lead the 76ers into tonight's game with an 8-9 record. This is a team that can beat you at times and fall apart badly other times. You never know how well they will play before the start of a game. Iverson leads the Sixers in scoring with 22.4 ppg. The Grizzlies are planning on letting Artest guard Iverson for the game. "Artest should give AI trouble with his height. Ron is one of the best perimeter defenders in the game, so we will leave it in his hands to guard Iverson," Coach Hubie Brown said.

Probable Starters:
76ers
C-Samuel Dalembert- (10 RPG)
PF-Kenny Thomas- (7.5 RPG)
SF-Glenn Robinson- (17.8 PPG)
SG-Allen Iverson- (22.4 PPG)
PG-Eric Snow- (4.2 APG)


Grizzlies
C-Erick Dampier- (1.9 BPG)
PF-Pau Gasol- (12.0 RPG)
SF-James Posey- (16.0 PPG)
SG-Ron Artest- (20.6 PPG)
PG-Jason Williams- (6.4 APG)

Grizzlies Continue Streak

The Grizzlies start the month off right with a win over the Sixers

Image
By Ronald Tillery
December 5, 2004

Image76ers-79
ImageGrizzlies-101

Image
Artest forced Iverson into taking tough shots as he shot 8-21 from the field

The gameplan of letting Artest guard Iverson worked out pretty well for the Grizzlies. Iverson was able to put in 18 points, but he didn't shoot well from the field. Artest was making Iverson force his shots when he got the ball. Artest only had 1 steal in the game, but he did things throughout the game to keep the Sixers from being any threat to the Grizzlies.

James Posey did have an off game. Glenn Robinson was able to score 19 points on Posey. Posey had a bad offensive night and defensive night. "It was just one of those games for me that was bound to happen. I was playing so well during the winning streak, and I knew one game I just wasn't going to do good in. Luckily, my teammates didn't need me that much tonight and all of them contributed well enough to get the victory," Posey said.

The play of Jason Williams was tremendous as he led the Grizzlies in scoring with 23 points and dished out 7 assists in the game. He has been on point since the Grizzlies started their winning streak. "He has come into his own now, and I think he is starting to have an all-star year if he can keep it up," Assistant Coach Tony Barone Sr. said.

With a 6 game winning streak at stake, the Grizzlies will play the Utah Jazz for the 3rd time this season in their next game. The Grizzlies have won both of the first 2 meetings against the Jazz and expect the Jazz to be more caution of the Grizzlies style of play. "I know they will be ready for us this time after playing us for the 3rd time in just 2 months. It will be a good game and hopefully we can come out with the win," Stromile Swift said.

P. Gasol-17 pts, 9 rebs, 2 blks

Grizzlies Announce Hoops Camp

The Grizzlies organization have created a basketball camp for the youth of Memphis

Image
By Ronald Tillery
December 6, 2004

Image
Jason Williams playing 1-on-1 with 12 year old Jeremy Collins, a 6th grader at Snowden Elementary.

Grizzlies majority owner Michael Heisley has produced another program for the Memphis community. After having a Summer Hoops Camp during the summertime for kids 5-14, he has now put in an effort to make another program thats during the winter.

The Grizzlies Hoops Camp will have kids from the age 5 up to 15 learning about different types of skill training and will experience all basketball fundemental in a competitive setting. Players will have the opportunity to apply their new skills in real game situations.

For just $150 per week, each camper receives: 2 tickets to a future Grizzlies game at FedExForum, a camp t-shirt, certificate, off-season workout plans, Grizzlies trading cards and the chance to win prizes each day.

"This program will give all kids something to do during the 2nd week in the month of January. That one week the kids will have will turn them into more of a team player and they will get the chance to interact with other kids around the community of Memphis," Grizzlies owner Michael Hiesley said.

The Grizzlies commitment to a wide variety of basketball program serves the purpose of improving fitness, developing sportsmanship and a love of the game while teaching teamwork, leadership, listening skills and the importance of hard work and respect for others.

During the week, there will be visits from Grizzlies players Jason Williams, Troy Bell, Mike Miller, Antonio Burks and James Posey.

(Thanks to cklistie for the jogging suit pants and helping me come up with the idea of this.) :wink: )

Hey Desmond...

Man, I can't believe how much I've missed man. You never told me how good it was on MSN. I mean, this is the sweetest fuckin' thread I've seen since Cocobee's and possibly Mark's dynasty. I’m telling you, this is the best dynasty ever. You damn good man. :shock:

First off, (and I’m just gonna try and cover all bases/what I missed) and I’ll start by saying, from the moment I started reading this, I literally wet myself.. :oops:

Now, about the managing of your team, you were; are good.
First you sign a great F in Cardinal, then you lure in Dampier (who is one of the most underrated C’s in the L.)
Next, you trade for Artest and Wilcox; are you sure you weren’t a real GM or some person who worked for an NBA team in your previous life? :?:

But managing the team isn’t all you can do…
The way you present each page, it’s just like reading a website. I specially liked the NBA INSIDERS issue; that was down right sweet. And the SLAM mag, that was a nice touch, especially with newcomer Artest. The article by Khalid Salaam was tight, but it maybe could’ve used a touch up.

Onto the actual games.
Great presentation. I know this might sound like I’m going on, but it’s just that damn good.
For your first game, you continuing with the pre-match write-ups with I loved form the previous dynasty. Great wins against the Rockets, Jazz, Suns (except 1) Bulls, Sixers, Hawks (great opener) Celtics, Kings, Warriors, Rockets (again, great game) & the Spurs. Bad luck against The Suns though, and the Raptors, Knicks & Pistons; they were all great games, most going down to the wire. And at December, you were 3rd in the West- that’s’ good. Great, not good. Gasol is leading the way in boards, (5th in the L) and JWill is stealing like Iverson (3rd in the L). The depth of your team is excellent. You’ve got Artest who is a powerhouse on both ends, Dampier who is working his way in nicely, Miller who always puts up good numbers, JWill is the probably the leader of the Grizz behind Gasol & Gasol? What can I say…? :lol:

And next thing, from nowhere, comes this bloody training camp thing where I fell off my chair. You got JWill, in an And 1 top and tracksuit pants! Damn. And the little kid…damn again. That, I just can’t describe it, a lot of work has gone into this whole thing, and you should keep it up and keep going. If there was an award for dynasty of the year, you’d get it bro.
The overall dynasty is amazing and I know I’m raving on so I’ll stop now, but anyways, cheers to Desmond. I’ll talk to later on MSN! (B)
Macca (Y)

PS:: Sorry I haven't been following it as of late, or posting comments, but I've been tied up. (As everyone knows :roll: ) But I'll try to post here as often as possible when ever I get some free time. Go Memphis (Y)

Dang, you have made my day by giving me those type of props. I just came from bball practice a little while ago and I was at school from 7 AM til 7 PM, then I had to play at my school football game so I just got back at around 11:30 PM. I'm going to really make sure I get plenty of games in this weekend because that compliment really made me want to finish this dynasty. Thanks for all the compliments :wink:

Utah @ Memphis
December 10, 7:30 PM
Jazz, 8-12; Grizzlies, 12-4.


ROUND 3

The Jazz and Grizzlies go at each other once again with the Grizzlies winning the series 2-0

Image
By Ronald Tillery
December 10, 2004

After the Grizzlies released their new uniforms for the upcoming season, the Jazz released their uni's a little after that. The colors for the jerseys were very simliar, but the Grizzlies had a little more extra taste in the design category for their jersey.

The Grizzlies hav also been showing the league that the Jazz are no threat to them this season by leading the season series 2-0. Last season, the Jazz ended up giving the Grizzlies a fight during their series by ended it with a 2-2 tie.

The return of Matt Harpring this season has given the Jazz some what of an advantage to make the playoffs. In tonight's game, Andrei Kirilenko and Gordan Giricek will not play. Kirilenko is out for at least 10 days with a twisted ankle and Giricek is out for 2 weeks with a fractured thumb. These injuries will really hurt the Jazz, but they still have Arroyo, Harpring, Boozer and Okur, who can all do some damage. Raja Bell will be sstarting for the injured Kirilenko.

Key Matchup:
Carlos Arroyo vs. Jason Williams
It's very hard to describe the play of Jason Williams during the Grizzlies 6 game winning streak. He has done many things to help the team. He maintains his assist average, while averaging less turnovers and more points. Arroyo has came on this season averaging a career-high 16.8 ppg and 5.3 apg.

Jazz
C-Mehmet Okur- (5.3 RPG)
PF-Carlos Boozer- (8.2 RPG)
SF-Raja Bell- (12 STLS)
SG-Matt Harpring- (16.9 PPG)
PG-Carlos Arroyo- (5.3 APG)


Grizzlies
C-Erick Dampier- (1.9 BPG)
PF-Pau Gasol- (11.8 RPG)
SF-James Posey- (15.6 PPG)
SG-Ron Artest- (20.4 PPG)
PG-Jason Williams- (6.4 APG)

Nothing Can Stop Them

Grizzlies have now won 7 straight consecutive games and are playing fabolous ball

Image
By Ronald Tillery
December 11, 2004

ImageJazz-87
ImageGrizzlies-111


Image
Gasol was able to have his way during the game without the Jazz having Kirilenko

The Grizzlies came into this game knowing that they had a great chance of winning. The Jazz were hurt after losing Kirilenko and Giricek to injuries that would keep them out for at least 2 weeks each.

The Jazz didn't have anybody that made up for the lost of Giricek and Kirilenko combined. Harpring was the leading scorer for teh Jazz as he put in 20 pts and grabbed 6 rebs, but that wasn't enough to overcome 24 point deficit. The Grizzlies ended up having 4 players with 17 points or more in this game. The depth was just too much for the Jazz to handle with two of their best players not being there.

"This was a must win game for us. We were on a 6 game winning streak going into this game and we knew we couldn't let this game get away because we have teams like Dallas and Minnesota to face in a couple of days," Artest said.

Image
The Jazz miss Kirlekno's tremendous defense and offense and they needed him in last night's game against the Grizzlies

Raja Bell did a fair job by starting for Kirilenko, but he never did bring the presence that Kirilenko produces. Bell was able to get 12 points in the game and he didn't have a good defensive night which he is mostly known for.

The matchup between Jason Williams and Carlos Arroyo was even as Williams scored 11 points and dished out 7 assists, while Arroyo scored 13 points and dished out 5 assists. "Arroyo will be a great PG in the future and he has been taught by one of the greatest PG's, John Stockton. He is still a very young kid and with more experience, he will grow into that all-star mentality," Coach Hubie Brown said.

The play of Stromile Swift off the bench gave the Grizzlies a tremendous boost. Swift was probably the difference maker in this game as he scored 15 points off the bench for the Grizzlies. "When I came into the game, I knew we couldn't take it easy on this team even though they were without their star player. I came in and played my best," Swift said.

Player Stats:
Grizzlies
P. Gasol-20 pts, 8 rebs, 2 blks
J. Posey-20 pts, 7 rebs
E. Dampier-18 pts, 11 rebs, 2 blks
R. Artest-17 pts, 8 rebs, 4 asts, 2 stls
S. Swift-15 pts, 3 rebs, 2 blks
J. Williams-11 pts, 7 asts


Jazz
M. Harpring-20 pts, 6 rebs
C. Boozer-16 pts, 8 rebs
C. Arroyo-13 pts, 5 asts
R. Bell-12 pts
M. Okur-11 pts, 7 rebs

Grizzlies, 13-4; Sonics, 8-10.


On the Road Again

The Grizzlies hit the west coast after being at home for 2 games

Image
By Ronald Tillery
December 13, 2004

When it's early in the afternoon, most NBA players hate playing at that time. After previous experiences, star Grizzlie player, Pau Gasol doesn't like playing early games. "It ruins my nap time and your still not completely awaken," Gasol said. Posey is one of the few players that don't mind playing early games. "The only thing I need is a bag of Skittles and water and I will be ready to go," Posey explained.

The Grizzlies broke their team record of winning 6 game consecutive games after baeting the Jazz to move their streak to 7 games. Someone has came up big for the team each night and they have had enough depth to defeat each team in their own unique way during the winning streak.

The Grizzlies will have to deal the duo of Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis in today's game. Allen has maintained a high scoring average with 21.4 ppg, but Lewis average has dropped. He averages 14.1 ppg, while shooting 39% from the field.

Key Matchup:
Ron Artest vs. Ray Allen
Once again, its the defensive man against an offensive machine. Artest has to guard another tough offensive player in today's game. Allen is a great shooter and you can't sleep on him or he will go off in the game. Artest has to stay on Allen to keep him from getting an open shot. He must force Allen to create his own shot instead.

Probable Starters:
Sonics
C-Robet Swift (8.3 RPG)
PF-Nick Collison- (5.3 RPG)
SF-Rashard Lewis- (14.7 PPG)
SG-Ray Allen- (23.2 PPG)
PG-Luke Ridnour- (4.1 APG)


Grizzlies
C-Erick Dampier- (1.9 BPG)
PF-Pau Gasol- (11.4 RPG)
SF-James Posey- (15.4 PPG)
SG-Ron Artest- (20.3 PPG)

Close Call in Seattle

Artest has his best outing since becoming a Grizzlie in yesterday's game

Gasol had some key defensive plays during the last few minutes of the game

This was probably the toughest game during the Grizzlies winning streak. It came down to the end, when Artest had to make a tough decision during crunchtime.

With 22 seconds left in the game, the score was knotted at 100-100 apiece and the Sonics had the ball. The Grizzlies were forced to foul Nick Collison who was trying to pass the ball to Allen, but Gasol fouled him just in time. Collison went to the line to make the first free throw, but he missed the 2nd one and Dampier grabbed the rebound. He called for a timeout so the Grizzlies could take the ball out at halfcourt. Memphis set up a play for Artest on the wing, Posey inbounded the ball to Williams and Williams passed it to Artest on the wing to shoot the 3 point shot. Artest made the shot with 17 seconds left.

Dampier 10 rebounds, led the Grizzlies in that category and helped them win their 8 consecutive game

The Sonics called a timeout after the Grizzlies grabbed a 103-101 lead. The Sonics set up a play for their hot shooter in the game which was Ray Allen. Ridnour found Allen in the corner to shoot a quick 3 point shot to give the Sonics the lead and he missed it. Gasol grabbed the rebound and quickly outlet the ball to Artest. Allen was coming towards him to foul him so Artest shot another 3 pointer as Allen was coming towards him and made it while getting fouled. Artest missed the free throw and the time ran out as the Sonics got the rebound.

After that game, news reporter A.C. Smith asked Artest why did he shoot the ball instead of just getting fouled to shoot two free throws. He responded, "When your on the road and you have to shoot crunchtime free throws, it's real tough situation. That was something I didn't want to go through and I had the confidence in myself to shoot the 3 point shot knowing I was about to get fouled. That way, if I missed the shot, I still would've shot 3 shots instead of 2 and if I made 2 out of the 3 free throws, we would still have a 2 possession game. If I only had 2 free throws and made 1 out of 2, then it would still be a 1 possession game," Artest said.

The Grizzlies will face the division leading Dallas Mavericks in their biggest game of the season tomorrow.

This is amazing. This is what inspired me to start my dynasty. I can't believe how much work and detail you put into this. And it's all presented so well. And as hard as I work on my dynasty you just seem to put in more effort (I'm not trying to compete by the way :D ).

I have no complaints at all. Well one small thing but it's not your fault, Dampier is with the Mavs but you started when he was still a free agent so thats still cool. And I really wanted to see Artest with the Kings...you bastard :lol: . No but really, this is the best and most interesting dynasty ever. I like dynasties where you make realistic trades and don't ruin every other team by taking their star player unless they were going to be traded in real life (Although Artest wasn't the star player but he was close, and you made a good trade for him anyways). So keep it up because this dynasty is keeping me going with my dynasty.
