Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports The Hustle’s new coach chats with me about Memphis and the upcoming season With Brad Jones being announced as part of Taylor Jenkins’ staff with the Grizzlies, it opened up the door for the Memphis Hustle to have their 3rd coach in as many seasons. In stepped former Grizzlies assistant Jason March, who spent 9 years in Memphis before tagging along with Dave Joerger for 3 years in Sacramento.

Scouting the Enemy: Milwaukee Bucks

Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports What to expect from the Bucks and their MVP Milwaukee Bucks Former Grizzlies: Kyle Korver (kind of) Offseason in Review: The fact that the Bucks are currently coming off one of the best seasons in the history of the franchise is little solace to most Bucks fans. A number one seed, the Coach of the Year, and Giannis Antetokounmpo winning the MVP over a certain bearded guard for the Rockets are bittersweet takeaways for a team that accomplished much, but not all that they wanted. This was a team with real championship aspirations and were up 2-0 over the...
