know it's not a lot of fun to pick watch a competitive team on top of the top-8 restriction, but

Memphis 12-7, currently #23-24 slot

Conley and Gasol are the new Stockton and Malone.

Slowest pace of play this season. Sacramento is second fastest, Hawks #1

The Grizzlies success is not sustainable and I think that they'll start slowing falling back into the lottery in the upcoming weeks. Gasol and Conley have been playing at a really high level. However, the minutes they're receiving is going to have an effect as the season continues. Gasol is turning 34 in 2 months and he's averaging 35.1 MPG and 37.3 MPG over his last 10 games. Conley, who missed a lot of games the last couple of seasons, is at 33.6 MPG for the year and 35.7 MPG over his last 10 games. Conley has especially been asked to do a lot of heavy lifting in terms of chasing guards around the floor and during crunch time situations the ball is always in his hands looking for him to create. Again, those are some tough minutes even with a slower paced system.

The Grizzlies have lost 3 straight games (2 at home) and have a difficult upcoming schedule through the end of the calendar year.

Away - Nets
Away - Sixers
Home - Clippers
Away - Pelicans
Home - Lakers (second night of a back to back)
Away - Nuggets (third game in four days)
Home - Blazers (fourth game in six days)
Home - Heat (fifth game in eights days)
Home - Rockets (sixth game in nine days)
Away - Warriors
Away - Blazers
Away - Kings
Away - Lakers
Home - Cavs
Home - Celtics
Away - Rockets

Embarrassing trade fallout

Dillon Brooks is currently injured, Oubre could have helped

If Conley has to miss a significant amount of time again, I'll immediately give up on this pick conveying in 2019  :P

He has already been dinged up a few times recently.

So Memphis has been on the skids recently. As of now their pick will still convey (#13 as of now and it's has a top 8 protection), especially thanks to some horrible teams in the East.
Question is, will they tank if they keep losing and/or lose one of their better players to injury?
I know some of you want them to keep the pick this year so we can collect their pick either 2020 (top 6 protected) or 2021 (UNPROTECTED).
Which side are you on? Collect the pick this year (2019), next year (2020) or take our chances in 2021?

Kinda want this pick to not convey this year. Will be an even more valuable trade chip for AD.

The Memphis Grizzlies' emotional team meeting after loss to Detroit tonight turned physical in an altercation between veterans Garrett Temple and Omri Casspi in locker room

Chris Wallace says there will be internal discipline based on last night’s reported locker room incident but declined to specify what that meant. He also expressed displeasure that the story leaked and said that would also “be dealt with internally.”
