Grizzlies GM Confirms Offer to A.I.

The Answer’s tweet was no joke, says the immortal Chris Wallace: “Negotiations between the sides have heated up to the point where the Grizzlies have made their first formal offer. ‘We’re heading into the home stretch before the season, and we have had interest in Allen all summer,’ Wallace said. ‘We’ve been in touch on a fairly consistent basis and had dialogue with his agent, Leon Rose, since the beginning of free agency.”‘

    I don’t see how that would be a good fit.

    This move is all about ticket sales.

    Me either but that would be a cold squad on live

    Say no to Z-Bo. Too “youthier” for Allen.

  • boy sanchez

    C’mon guys why not? AI is a great veteran and he can teach a lot to Mayo, Rudy and the others. Plus I would really like to see AI and Rudy as an alley-oop duo!

    You know, with the amount of offense weapons this team has, they could very much be the next gen PHX Suns. And by that I mean 110 point games but lacking defense.

    But pass the ball to Randolph, get it back in 7 seconds or more, actually much more. Plus if the translation is correct and also not just hyping up his status in the press office, Haddadi is already the star of this team.

  • Captain Jean Luc-Picard

    Where is this franchise going?

  • UnRel

    where is it going?… no where.. but it’s going to become the most entertaining team to use in 2k10.. best beleive that..

    Captain Jean – the team is going nowhere for now. I think they just signed AI to get more butts in their stadium.

  • chingy

    Is Mayo off the bench then cus AI sure as hell won’t be coming off the bench? This is gonna hurt Mayo’s (or Conley’s) development

    Captain Jean: Seattle.

  • skywalker

    he should retire while he still has some honor left, he’s started going downhill since he got to denver

  • Shem

    AI,conley,mayo,rudy,randolphand the star of the team haddadi… magic 8 ball says trouble is ahead

    @Skywalker: How did he start going down hill since he got to Denver? He was arguably the second or third best guard in the league at the time because he was averaging 26.4ppg and 7.2 apg and 2.2 spg.

  • Shem

    @Pardeep: he was indeed still good but on detroit he averaged 17.5 pts 4.9 assts 1.6 stls 41% 28% from 3.. still good stats except for the shooting percentage but not iverson good

    LOL @ Shem…your stats about AI on detroit have no relation to pardeeps comments about skywalkers claim to AI on Denver.
    if that makes sense.

  • Shem

    @ Dacre they really do seeing how his stats dropped, they were still good stats but not up to AIs career stats. If that makes sense

    They’re going to start AI at the 1 and Mayo at the 2, and have Conley come off the bench.
