    Came here to say I expect Nurk to show something and there you go.. So I voted for Nurk. He seems to play same way again and it is not what I was hoping for. I don't know. I have shorten period of patience for him than I have for the team all together this season. He supposed to be different animal under new coach but somehow I still don't see the hunger.
    I hope he is not just soft, like Lillard.

    Lillard isn't soft. That negates everything you wrote.

    It's 3 freaking games. He's had 3 game slumps before. Use logic.

    If Dame is seriously limited then we basically have no chance this season, so that is the most significant potential impact of the three voting options. However I have the most faith in him he will improve of the three.

    Nurk doesn't look good at all. I'm not sure if it's just a slump, he is trying too hard, he just doesn't have the skills he and some of us thought he had, or what the issue(s) are. However we have great options at center with Zeller and Nance, as well as free agents or low cost trade acquisitions making center the easiest position to replace if we need to go a different direction.

    RoCo is very concerning, his offense was poor last season and looks even worse now. His defense while his strength is certainly not complete in off ball and on ball performance. He has injury history and is on the wrong side of 30 where declines can happen very quickly. He plays a position that is extremely hard to replace.

    So I'm concerned about all three right now; but Roco is the easy choice for this poll.

    The first post incorrectly has Grizzlies starters photos showing Dillion Brooks #24 who has a broken hand and #1 Kyle Anderson who comes off the bench.

    The Grizzlies start De'Anthony Melton #0 and Desmond Bane #22.

    to be fair, nurk had bad first, but good second half in the first game, he had great game against phoenix and he had what might be his worst game in the nba

    in my eyes, hes been 50% good and 50% bad in these three games
