Merry Grizzmas Eve: Previewing the 2017-2018 Memphis Grizzlies

The 2017-2018 season is upon us. What will it all mean for the Grizzlies? Once again it’s Grizzmas Eve, ladies and gentlemen. And this year feels just a little bit different.

Chandler Parsons is somehow now a bench big, James Ennis III is somehow now a starter, and Memphis just yesterday waived its 2016 1st round pick (Wade Baldwin IV) and a guy they just signed to a...

Grit and Grind Ain’t Dead

Grit and Grind Ain’t Dead

It’s still with us. When Tony Allen said, “It’s just all heart. Grit. Grind.” it was so emblematic of the striving in this city it became our core mantra. As Allen recently put it, “...that’s the way I live, that’s the way I carry myself. You know, I grind for my family, I grind for the people I love. It’s a way of life.” And in our largely blue collar city this resonates, it is our way of life. But, in the off season the Grizzlies organization did not noticeably contend for the Grindfather Tony Allen and the toughest power-forward in the game Zach Randolph. The public...
