Creating certainty with Bruno Caboclo

Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports Bruno Caboclo has a golden opportunity to work his way into the Grizzlies long term plans. The term ‘breakout’ is a popular word people use for players who unexpectedly become significant contributors on their team, but there are different levels that this term can pertain to. In some cases, you have a perceived role player transforming into a star, such as Victor Oladipo or Donovan Mitchell. For the Memphis Grizzlies and their fans, the hope is that Ja Morant, Jaren Jackson Jr., and Brandon Clarke could have that type of breakout season over the...

Cutting down the Grizzlies roster

Cutting down the Grizzlies roster

Jeff Swinger-USA TODAY Sports Three guys gotta go! Now that the preseason schedule is released, the Memphis Grizzlies are one step closer to the season. With that comes some decisions that need to be made. The Grizzlies currently have 20 men on roster — two 2-way players and 18 others. According to the Collective Bargaining Agreement, each NBA team can only roster 15 non 2-way players. This means that Memphis has to figure out what to do with three players before the regular season starts. First let’s go ahead and state who is a lock to make the current roster: Ja Morant, Jaren...

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports The Grizzlies vast potential with the Pick and Roll is not just limited to Ja and Jaren. Without a doubt, the future of the Memphis Grizzlies depends on the development of Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr. Not only individually, but also as a duo. However, the success of this off-season goes beyond just those two. The Grizzlies have done an amazing job bringing in additional pieces that can grow with Morant and Jackson Jr. to create a very talented core for the future. The great thing for Memphis is that these additions can also add value to the pick and...

In search of the next great Grizzlies rivalry

Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports Finding a new rival for the new-look, new era Memphis Grizzlies The Memphis Grizzlies are undoubtedly entering a new era. The incoming rookie Ja Morant and second-year stud Jaren Jackson Jr. have been the signals this new era has arrived. But the final nail in the coffin that is the previous era was the trading of Mike Conley to the Utah Jazz. Why? Because now every Grizzlies rivalry is dead. Including the biggest one of them all, the rivalry with the Los Angeles Clippers. The Clippers, even before this huge summer for them, were a completely different...

Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports The pick and roll is a great way to maximize the talents of Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr. Over the past few seasons, several of the NBA’s best teams share a few common traits. One of those traits is a simple offensive scheme that has been around for decades. While the idea of this play is simple, it can create an abundant amount of successful options for an offense to use. It is known as the good ol’ pick and roll. In fact, the successful execution of this offensive concept has been one of the best indicators of success for NBA playoff teams over...

The battle to be starting shooting guard

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports It may be a short-term solution, but it could pay some dividends down the road. Despite the moves the Memphis Grizzlies have made this summer, the core isn’t finished yet. It’s easy to look at the holes in the roster, primarily with shooting. All these holes won’t be filled in one offseason. Shooting will come with time, and there could be some potential weapons yet to be unearthed. One hole that’s glaring at the moment is the starting shooting guard position. Everything else is simple, and quite frankly satisfying as well. Ja Morant will run...
