The Bench

“We got off to a good start, we played well, we were focused, and our defense was good,” Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins said. “We moved the basketball and we started subbing and we didn’t get the same play from our bench.”


This is a quote that Hollins will be able to use in 60+ games this season.

On a related note, sometimes I feel like I am too negative about the Grizzlies.

Then I read John Hollinger's player profiles or ESPN's 'expert' predictions or SI's Scouting Report.

That's when I realize my views are aligned with the the 'experts'. They hate almost every player on our team and every move we make.

yeah, i read 3sob and start drinking the kool-aid, then Skeets does his preview of us and my eyes are opened to the train wreck that will be our season. That being said, I would buy season tickets in a heart beat if I lived in Memphis.

Yes, but I would buy tix every season...

Did you read Simmon's preview articles? he definitely classifies us as a team that lost money last season and he says Rudy will be traded by Dec-Jan.

They seem to change URLs every six months, but the most updated location is linked on the right side of this page.

Try "ctrl+f" = "3 Shades".

Yes, I read BS.

I am not opposed to trading anybody on the team, but obviously not for 50 cents on the dollar.

I don't think BS has inside info on the Grizz financials, but I will ask him at the book signing.
