What the 2018 NBA Draft means in Memphis

What the 2018 NBA Draft means in Memphis

The Grizzlies are going back to move forward. Will it work? As long and drawn out as the analysis process felt in the lead up to the 2018 NBA Draft, it was as if you blinked and it all was over. All the draft parties and podcasts and rumors, it all was gone almost before you could say “Kostas Antetokounmpo”. For the Memphis Grizzlies, their actions this past Thursday, and the words of the press conference the day after, said plenty. So Jaren Jackson Jr. and Jevon Carter are the newest members of the Memphis Grizzlies. What does it mean moving forward? What do Grit and Grind and Lazarus...

The Memphis Grizzlies just can’t let go

And it...

Jaren Jackson Jr. - The Bridge to a New Era

Jaren Jackson Jr. - The Bridge to a New Era

“Grit ‘n’ Grind” may be coming back, but Jaren Jackson Jr. could transform it. The Memphis Grizzlies clawed their way to a 45-37 record and the 7th seed in the Western Conference. Marc Gasol, Mike Conley and a returning Tyreke Evans obviously led the way, but Jaren Jackson Jr. and Dillon Brooks showed everyone what the future could become. Brooks improved immensely as a scorer, 3-point shooter and playmaker — averaging 13 points on 40 percent shooting from deep and 4 assists. Meanwhile, Jaren Jackson Jr. was a surprising immediate contributor and held down the starting power...

Memphis Grizzlies select Jevon Carter with the 32nd overall pick

Memphis Grizzlies select Jevon Carter with the 32nd overall pick

Grit and Grind is all you need to know about this kid. With the 32nd overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, the Memphis Grizzlies select Jevon Carter out of West Virginia. This is a bit of a reach with the second pick of the night. However, it is a good match with the team identity of the Memphis Grizzlies. Jevon Carter is a prospect that had fallen a bit over the past week. He came in to Memphis for a workout last week, so I am sure the front office was intrigued by him during that process. In his post workout interview, you could tell very quick that he is going to fight his way on to an...
