The Memphis Grizzlies saw their hopes of making the Finals end in a devastating sweep by the San Antonio Spurs. Aside from new coach David Joerger, the Grizzlies are the same team as last year. One of the most successful minor league basketball coaches in history, Joerger recently completed his sixth season as an assistant on the Grizzlies’ bench and his second as lead assistant. We have to wait and see if he can get the Grizzlies to play anything that resembles offense. The Rockets had trouble with Memphis last year mainly due to Zach Randolph, and Marc Gasol clogging the paint. This upcoming season the Rockets have their own foreign-american big man tandem t clog the paint. Also worth noting that it appears Mike Conley Jr. has figured out what playing point guard REALLY means.
