What if Mike Conley had not broken his face?

What if Mike Conley had not broken his face?

Does the Grizzlies timeline change and what happens to his “legacy?” Is there a more singular performance in Grizzlies history than Mike Conley’s triumphant return from an excruciating broken face to stun the Golden State Warriors in Game 2 of the 2015 Western Conference Semifinals? It is unquestionably one of the most memorable games in Grizzlies lore, and is almost certainly the most important game of Conley’s career. It was the moment he ascended past the “most underrated” moniker and firmly into the upper echelon of NBA talent. It was a team’s identity encapsulated in the...

Why the Grizzlies should start Wayne Selden at shooting guard

Why the Grizzlies should start Wayne Selden at shooting guard

With Ben McLemore out, the Grizzlies will have to decide who to start at the two, and Wayne Selden makes as much sense as anyone. For most of the post-free agency period, it’s been assumed that Ben McLemore, signed to a two-year deal, would be the favorite to start at shooting guard alongside Mike Conley, Chandler Parsons, JaMychal Green (hopefully), and Marc Gasol.

What is Gasol’s role this season?

What is Gasol’s role this season?

Marc Gasol could be a Grizzly wild card with this new roster. Marc Gasol is the only player on the Memphis Grizzlies roster to be on an All-Star team. He has been selected to three and started in one of them. He also has a Defensive Player of the Year award, a First Team All-NBA selection, and even 20 total votes in the NBA MVP award between the 2012-13 and 2014-15 seasons. He is pretty good, I’d say. Some would say the best center in the league, unless you’re partial to DeMarcus Cousins or Rudy Gobert. He could go down as the best Grizzly of all time. Mike Conley may give him a run for...

Giving Mike Conley his due

Mike Conley had the best season of his career last year. So, where was all the coverage? As August settles in, NBA teams and their fan bases are starting to evaluate their recent transactions as they look forward to the 2017-2018 season.
