The education of Jaren Jackson Jr.

You learn far more from failure than success In a rookie season full of peaks and valleys, Jaren Jackson Jr. has plenty to take in. Whether it be from mentors like Kevin Garnett and Mike Conley, his coaches, or his support group led by his parents, all around him is a whirlwind of information and opportunity. For a young man who had trouble at times staying of the floor for Michigan State this time last season (for reasons not entirely of his own making), it must be overwhelming at times. At 19 years old, the fact is that the prospects of the Memphis Grizzlies for roughly the next decade...

Keeping calm with the Memphis Grizzlies

Keeping calm with the Memphis Grizzlies

The Memphis Grizzlies’ moves around Jaren Jackson Jr. give me a small glimmer of hope in this team’s future. The Memphis Grizzlies are going to be alright. I’m not saying this to coddle everyone over the fact they lost to the lowly Chicago Bulls. I’m not trying to overreact to a wildly entertaining game against the Spurs, or Saturday’s win over the dysfunctional Pelicans. After the trade deadline, there was a lot of push back from both the fans and media alike. Some saw the moves as short-sighted, as many were expecting rebuild-esque moves that yielded young prospects, bad...

New look Grizzlies hold off Pelicans in first home game of post Gasol era

Newly acquired Grizzlies contribute in the victory In their first home game of the post Marc Gasol era, the Memphis Grizzlies (23-34) staved off the New Orleans Pelicans (25-32) 99-90 Saturday night at FedEx Forum. The action started slowly for Memphis, as a new look Grizzlies starting lineup featuring Justin Holiday, Jaren Jackson Jr., Ivan Rabb, Avery Bradley and Mike Conley had trouble coalescing on the offensive and defensive end, allowing multiple rim runs and drives while leaving Pelicans shooters open from the outside. The group started 1-6 from the field and turned the ball over...

Can the Grizzlies now rebuild Jaren Jackson Jr. as the franchise cornerstone?

The stakes for the Memphis Grizzlies

No biggie, just the future of the franchise. The roof may come off FedExForum. It is Game Seven of the 2022 Western Conference Semi-Finals, and the Grizzlies are in the fight of their lives against LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and the Los Angeles Lakers. No one expected this Grizzlies team to be here - Jaren Jackson Jr. had developed in to the All-NBA player Memphis fans had hoped he could be, earning his second nod on that team this season, but the rest of the squad was either young, supposedly “fatally flawed”, or both. By a stroke of “luck” the Grizzlies saw their 2019 1st round...
