Sprawlball by Kirk Goldsberry is a must read for any self-respecting hoops junkie who claims to have an appreciation for basketball analytics and the way that they relate to the game on the floor.
The crew gets together to talk about the Grizzlies historic back-to-back wins over Atlanta and Brooklyn on the road, why the loss to Dallas was expected, and the Chief goes on another epic rant.

It has been a while, but if you would like a refresher, here is my Central and Atlantic Division lookbacks. The Southeast had plenty of moves, and tons at the trade deadline too. This is just a lookback at the offseason, but the other moves gives us a better understanding of what truly happened.
Zak and Sam come together with a collective sigh of relief to talk Grizzlies hoops:
– LA fans overrun the Forum and Sam petitions folks to have hometown pride
– Lakers game takeaways
– Reactions to the blowout of the Hawks
– Anthony Tolliver big showing in first game
– Twitter corner and Sam makes his picks for the rest of the season
When two NBA superstars are in a squabble, the game is just better.

We’ve got a full house and they discuss the win over Portland that put the Grizzlies 2 games above .500 going into the All-Star Break. The guys then give their favorite member of the Bench Mob, discuss the performance of Josh Jackson, give Valentine’s advice and much more. Also, Ja Morant (a.k.a Headband 12) is awesome.
The Grizzlies EVP, Zach Kleman, met with members of the media on Monday to discuss Memphis’ trade deadline moves. Despite the team’s astonishing success, he remains future focused.
