Memphis Grizzlies Training Camp Primer

Memphis Grizzlies Training Camp Primer

Photo by Joe Murphy/NBAE via We back! The Memphis Grizzlies are getting back to basketball this week at FedExForum, and in that sentence is the feeling of some semblance of normalcy. Of course logically there’s nothing normal about what is going on over at 191 Beale Street - daily COVID testing, gradual returns to full team practices, and limited fans in arenas in some NBA cities and no fans in others are all reminders of just how odd this preseason period really is. There’s no Bubble this time to protect players and coaches. Despite its supposed successes, that...

Following the Bud Blueprint: Part 3- Smart and Sustainable Shot Selection

Following the Bud Blueprint: Part 3- Smart and Sustainable Shot Selection

Photo by Noah Graham/NBAE via In Part One and Part Two of “Following the Bud Blueprint”, I detailed a few ways in which Memphis Head Coach Taylor Jenkins is following in the footsteps of his mentor, Mike Budenholzer. Through frequent shooting and effective passing, the Grizzlies are continuing to develop into a roster with significant offensive potential. While they certainly still have a ways to go in terms of their shooting consistency, they finished the 2019-2020 season as one of the best passing teams in the NBA. Obviously these two traits are certainly...

Hoping for more national TV Grizzlies games

Hoping for more national TV Grizzlies games

Photo by Jesse D. Garrabrant/NBAE via More National TV games for the Grizzlies? Going back as far as I can remember - being around the Memphis Grizzlies organization, combined with fan reaction — when the schedule released, it could be a bad time. The Grizzlies have never had the energy around the franchise that screamed “we want to watch this,” from a national TV perspective. Combine that throwback style of basketball with from the Core Four era, a small market, and you have a team that didn’t see National Television throughout it’s golden years. Steph...

One way the Memphis Grizzlies are Trusting the Process

One way the Memphis Grizzlies are Trusting the Process

Photo by Justin Ford/NBAE via Zach Kleiman has incorporated one of Sam Hinkie’s principles without bottoming out and putting the team in position to fail. The Zach Kleiman, Jason Wexler plan for long-term, sustainable success is another way to say “trust the process.” Trust the process — a famous term dubbed by former Philadelphia 76ers exec, the architect of the NBA’s biggest tank-job ever, Sam Hinkie. While the Memphis Grizzlies organization isn’t equipping the team for a mountain of losses in hopes of acquiring high draft picks, Kleiman is following a...

Jaggles Out: Grizzlies Preseason Watch List

Photo by Joe Murphy/NBAE via Here are 6 Grizzlies players to watch throughout the NBA preseason We made it! Tis’ the season as Grizzlies basketball is back after a near four month layoff. The 2019-20 season didn’t end the way many would have preferred, with the Grizzlies coming up short in the play-in game vs. Portland back in August, but it was definitely memorable experience as the Grizzlies exceeded expectations under first year head coach Taylor Jenkins. The 2021 season will be a unique one. There’s no NBA Summer League, so new faces such as Desmond Bane and...

The Grizzlies have a blessing in disguise

The Grizzlies have a blessing in disguise

Pool Photo-USA TODAY Sports The absence of Jaren Jackson Jr. provides an opportunity. Whether in the movies or in the NBA, the sequel is at times better than the original. Batman Begins is a stellar and memorable film, but The Dark Knight is transcendent. The same goes for A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back respectively. And in the realm of the NBA specifically, Ja Morant will almost certainly have an even greater encore to what was one of the best rookie seasons a point guard has had in recent NBA history. But make no mistake about it: as great as Ja Morant is and...

Rooting for Milwaukee in Memphis

Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports The Grizzlies need Giannis to stay put. As the NBA season approaches, a massive Greek domino has less than three weeks to fall. Two-time NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks is reportedly back in the United States after an offseason trip to his native Greece with his family. He returns to Wisconsin with quite the decision in front of him. The Bucks have ready for him a contract offer in the form of the five year Supermax contract worth an astounding $227 million, an amount of money that will change the lives of generations of...
