Blog Readers Split Over Best Grizzlies' Offseason Move

Which of the Grizzlies' offseason moves has helped the team the most?

Readers have been voting in the poll on the sidebar of this site for the past few weeks to answer that question.

Readers are split on whether signing Conley or hiring Iavaroni have had a bigger impact. Conley took the lead by one vote today with 18 out of 53 votes. Many voters also think signing Darko was a great move.

Few have voted for dropping Atkins, Roberts, and Alexander. They all made solid contributions last year. Not one reader has voted for the hiring of Wallace. Jerry West is a tough act to follow, but Wallace or another executive only needs to oversee the winning of the Grizzlies' first playoff game to escape West's long shadow.

The poll was created before the Grizzlies signed Jacobson or Brown or (allegedly) traded for Navarro, so we'll have to guess about how readers feel about those moves.

There are 5 more days to vote, so please feel free to add your choice for the Grizzlies' best offseason moves before the it closes.

where is an update, not only do we complete the navarro trade (which was a steal in our favor), but we also get old mean gene as president. Where y'at?

I already posted on Navarro, there's not much else to say.

I must admit I don't know anything about Mean Ole' Gene other than the fact that he's a former Tiger coach. I don't even really understand what he's doing for the Grizzlies.

I do have couple of posts in the works, including thoughts on the final poll numbers and where the Grizzlies will place next season. Please enlighten me.

I'm in the middle of moving so I've been a little distracted, but I'll trry to get something up soon...
