This probably won’t work out.
Grit and grind is dead, so it’s time to figure out what’s next for the Grizzlies.
Mike Conley is essentially the same player as Kyle Lowry, but slightly better. He’s just younger and more athletic. Oh, and he gets better in the playoffs.
Whenever we think he’s reached his peak, Toronto point guard Kyle Lowry has just continued to get better and better. How long can he keep that up?
No $20 million FA is worth Zach Randolph, Tony Allen & Vince Carter. There are also too many downsides to stretching Parsons. So, what can the Grizzlies do?
The Grizzlies getting another shooter in Chandler Parsons was crucial, but can he, Conley, and Gasol all be counted on to stay healthy? That’ll be the test.
Mike Conley is good at everything but great at nothing. That’s not a bad thing, it’s just what keeps him right here. His value cannot be overstated.
Khris Middleton is the best three-and-D player in basketball right now. Plus, there’s his ability on isolations. So, just how valuable is the Bucks guard?
The grand experiment is probably over, and while they went down quickly in the first round, the Memphis Grizzlies weren’t too far off from greatness.
