Waiting for Superman in Memphis

Waiting for Superman in Memphis

Mistakes that the Grizzlies have made in the past have put too much pressure on their top draft pick this year. “And with the 4th pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, the Memphis Grizzlies select Luka Doncic, guard from Real Madrid.” As soon as the pick was made, Memphis fans began to celebrate, both at the FedexForum watch party and in the comfort of their own homes. After all, why wouldn’t they? When the Grizzlies fell to the 4th spot in the draft lottery, many doubted that Memphis would still be able to get a potentially generational talent like Doncic or Marvin Bagley. However, the...

Memphis Grizzlies 2018 NBA Draft Prospect Profiles: Rawle Alkins

Memphis Grizzlies 2018 NBA Draft Prospect Profiles: Rawle Alkins

How would the former Wildcat fit in Memphis? Rawle Alkins was a dynamic scorer during his time at Arizona, forming a one-two punch combination with fellow guard Allonzo Trier. Together with future No. 1 pick Deandre Ayton, the three formed the core of the Wildcats’ offensive attack. Brian Losness-USA TODAY Sports The Brooklyn native put together a solid sophomore season, with averages of 13.1 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game, helping the Wildcats win the Pac-12 outright, as well as the Pac-12 Tournament. While he didn’t necessarily live up to preseason...

Is Michael Porter Jr. “the one” for Memphis?

Is Michael Porter Jr. “the one” for Memphis?

In a long line of failed wings, MPJ could be the success story the Memphis Grizzlies have been searching for. Forgive Memphis for its hesitance. The city and their Grizzlies have been hurt many times when it comes to the search for the franchise’s next great wing. It wasn’t always this way, of course - the selection of Shane Battier at #6 overall in the 2001 NBA Draft and the acquisition of Mike Miller during the 2002-2003 season are examples of times where Memphis had talented perimeter players who delivered on their promise. Yet they still were not “stars”, at least in the...

Hey Grizzlies - don’t draft a defender!

Hey Grizzlies - don’t draft a defender!

We need a little more at #4. Site Manager’s note- Scott Beattie is a former GBBer who gets the urge to write every year around draft time. With the Memphis Grizzlies picking in the lottery for the first time in a while, he reached out with an idea for a post. I was happy to help. Here’s a question for you - what do Raja Bell, Luc Mbah a Moute, P.J. Tucker, Danny Green, Tony Allen, Patrick Beverley, Andre Roberson, Robert Covington, Kawhi Leonard, and Bruce Bown all have in common? A: They are/were great-to-elite perimeter defenders….and none of them were lottery picks. In fact, only...

Memphis Grizzlies 2018 NBA Draft Profiles: Jalen Brunson

Memphis Grizzlies 2018 NBA Draft Profiles: Jalen Brunson

How does the reigning Naismith winner and 2-time national champion translate to the NBA? It’s nearly impossible to have a more accomplished college career than one Villanova point guard Jalen Brunson. Two-time national champion, Big East Player of the Year, Wooden Award winner, AP Player of the Year, consensus 1st team All-American, and Naismith winner. There isn’t much left for him to add on to that in the college game, so he’s making the move to the NBA. Brunson was a driving force in Villanova’s success the last three years. His role on the team grew in each of his three years on...

Memphis should be ideal landing spot for top-5 prospects

Memphis should be ideal landing spot for top-5 prospects

The Memphis Grizzlies offer more than any other team in the top 5, which should be enticing to prospects in that range. Yes, teams ultimately control a player’s destiny in the any draft. However, many times you see players trying to force their hand and position themselves on their ideal landing spot. In 2009, Ricky Rubio threatened to stay in Europe if certain teams selected him. Lonzo Ball only worked out for the Lakers last season. Eli Manning didn’t want to play for the San Diego Chargers, who had the first pick, which forced a trade with the New York Giants. This year, we’re...

The Grizzlies and the almighty dollar

Golden State has proved that paying players to stay is worth it, but how are the Grizzlies doing with that strategy? As the NBA playoffs likely conclude soon thanks the mighty Golden State Warriors exercising their full reign on basketball once again this season, the next few months will be filled with headlines with dollar signs and lots of zeros following. That’s right, its about to be free agency season. Here in Grizz Nation, free agency is more closely compared with the winter in Game of Thrones, and this summer is especially important for a different reason: the NBA draft. But for...
