The Ringer, one of the better sports and pop culture website out there — besides yours truly, of course — released a video earlier this week breaking down the game of Memphis Grizzlies rookie sensation Ja Morant.
The Grizzlies center has carved out a nice role for himself on a potential playoff roster. Let’s take a look at the numbers to see where he makes his biggest impact.
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.
The guys give their thoughts on the addition of Justise Winslow and Gorgui Dieng and discuss what the deadline day moves (and Dillon Brooks extension) mean for this season and the future of the franchise. They also say their goodbyes Jae Crowder, Solo Hill, and Bruno Cobaclo before discussing the other moves around the NBA.
With the trade deadline upon us, let’s dive into the most likely landing spots for Andre Iguodala.
Morant, Jackson, and Clarke could put on a show that Grizz fans won’t soon forget
The NBA All-Star starts have been selected, but if the season ended now, who would take home the real hardware? Josh gives his thoughts and assigns awards through the first half of the NBA season.
The guys talk takeaways from the Grizzlies’ perfect week against the T’Wolves, Spurs, and Warriors in addition to their thoughts on the national media finally taking notice of this young team. Twitter Corner is a segment that looks like it’s here to stay and then we finish up by doling out mid-season team awards for MVP, MIP, 6MPY, DPOY.
Picking up where I left off from my Atlantic lookback, I am moving on to the Central Division. I do think this division had more action and mix-up that warrants analysis. Now let’s break down what each team did.
After an electric start to the season, it is time to re-calibrate (again) what we think about the NBA, teams and players. While some things seem to be going the way we expected, there are more surprises than ever before. Let’s try to look at some more trends that showed this past week and that may continue for the rest of the season.
