Memphis Grizzlies: Vince Carter Top Five Games

Vince Carter, also known as “The Ageless One,” turned back the clock multiple times this past season. The 2016-2017 season was Vince Carter’s best season with the Memphis Grizzlies. Before this season, he experienced multiple injuries after signing with the Grizzlies a few years back. He had struggled in those years, but this year that […] Memphis Grizzlies: Vince Carter Top Five Games - Beale Street Bears - Beale Street Bears - A Memphis Grizzlies Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

The Memphis Grizzlies’ Newfound Focus on 3-Pointers

Unlike past years, the Memphis Grizzlies have evolved into a, somewhat, modern NBA team with a newfound emphasis on 3-pointers. The Memphis Grizzlies’ 2016-17 season was a rollercoaster with its ups and downs. It was a season full of injuries, the backup point guard fiasco, resurrection of Vince Carter and many other things. In the […] The Memphis Grizzlies’ Newfound Focus on 3-Pointers - Beale Street Bears - Beale Street Bears - A Memphis Grizzlies Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Vince Carter: To Stay Or To Go

Vince Carter may be the oldest player in the league, but do you really think we are going to advise sending him away? Well, read to find out. At first, I didn’t give it much thought. Write a ‘To Stay or To Go’ piece on Vince Carter. Sounds easy enough. Then I had to think […] Vince Carter: To Stay Or To Go - Beale Street Bears - Beale Street Bears - A Memphis Grizzlies Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Purple Grind: A Grizz-themed Prince mixtape (Part I)

Purple Grind: A Grizz-themed Prince mixtape (Part I)

Just over a year after the death of one of music’s greatest icons, I decided to pay tribute. Just over a year ago, the world lost one of the greatest artists (and greatest guitarists) of all time. Prince, the diminutive funk master from Minneapolis, was found dead in his Paisley Park mansion last year, just another legend gone too soon. As a tribute, I decided to put together a Prince playlist based around the Grizzlies. I selected one (or in Vince Carter’s case, two) song/songs for them. Prince released over 35 albums over the course of his career, so there was plenty to choose from,...

Moments in Memphis: Devin Booker meets Vince Carter’s elbow

Moments in Memphis: Devin Booker meets Vince Carter’s elbow

Devin Booker’s face becomes familiar with Vince Carter’s elbow Vince Carter does not mess around. When you’re a 18-year veteran of the NBA, you don’t have the longest leash to give. You hold your teammates accountable, but you also hold your opponents accountable. Devin Booker is young. Currently 20 years old, he was just 2 (and a half) when Vince Carter made his NBA debut. He’s a young super talent that has All-Star potential. He’s young, good at his craft, and rich--of course he’s going to be brash. When being brash means talking trash to Vinsanity’s teammates or being...

This is how you stop Kawhi Leonard

This is how you stop Kawhi Leonard

It’s gonna work. Memphis Grizzlies head coach David Fizdale jokingly asked during a press conference for suggestions on how to guard Kawhi Leonard. “I've tried everything,” he said which is mostly true. He’s tested James Ennis III, Wayne Selden, Vince Carter and JaMychal Green against Leonard, and Marc Gasol has fared just as poorly when switched in pick and roll situations. There’s really not many other options except to outright double team the San Antonio Spurs forward. But, there may be some extra-legal manners in which the Grizzlies could stop Leonard. Let’s take a look at...
