According to most, Grizzlies point guard Ja Morant is the runaway favorite for the Rookie of the Year award this season. His new teammate agrees with this assessment, despite the cries of another candidate.
While Grizzlies fans have long griped that they don’t get any respect from the national media, that tune could be changing with the emergence of the human highlight reel — Ja Morant.
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 play a complete game at home against the Trail Blazers and are riding a mini-win streak into the All-Star break.
Morant, Jackson, and Clarke could put on a show that Grizz fans won’t soon forget
This week I dissect some big news in Grizz Nation and discuss the impact that Kyle Anderson could have in a starting role.
Zak covers some recent Grizzlies news, notes, and highlights.
The crew talks about the Grizzlies wins over the weekend, continue to heap praise on Ja and Jaren, and talk potential trades as well as the upcoming schedule. The guys also discuss some popular Twitter polls involving the Grizzlies in recent days. Zak somehow thinks that a third guy — not Ja or Jaren — is the most impactful player in wins. Listen and find out his logic why.
The Grizzlies have a solid week with some highlight reel performances. We discuss the following and more:
– Who is the face of the franchise?
– Aron Baynes is deceased
– Dillon’s importance to the team
– Did Ja or Jaren impress more?
– Stat tidbits on Jae and BC
Mason, Rich, and Zak come together on Sunday afternoon to discuss the Grizzlies losses to the Lakers and Suns, before hitting on 5 topics on the crew’s mind. Topics include: Jaren’s fouling, Team pace and offensive style, Ja Morant is awesome, the wing rotation, and Bruno being the odd man out.
