Default The Memphis Grizzlies Are The 3rd Best Team In The West.

If they get Allen Iverson. Wow Memphis has done a hell of a job if they can get AI.

Of Course the Lakers and Spurs are # 1 and #2. But I see the Nuggets, Blazers, Grizzlies fighting for the #3, #4, # 5 spots.

Look at the Grizzlies lineup

PG: Allen Iverson ( A future Hall of Famer can still get you 20+ PPG when healthy easily while dishing out 7 assists and he has alot of haters on ISh and across the world so he will be eagered to prove them wrong)


SG: O.J. Mayo ( What can't we say about him a future 30 ppg scorer, he is like a Mini Kobe a..... 6'4 Mamba)


SF: Rudy Gay ( 6'9 with a 7'2 Wingspan and a 38 vertical. If he gets his head together there is no reason why he can't be the 3rd best SF in the league next season no reason at all. He can shoot put the ball on the floor attack the rim.)

PF: Zach Randolph- ( 20 and 10 machine. He has a lot of haters saying he is a chucker, but damn he shot the ball 17 times in 35 mins of play that isnt that much)

C: Marc Gasol- ( a lot of size, great hands of the pick and roll, has a nice back to the basket game



Key Bench Players:

PG: Mike Conley Jr - has been a bust so far, but improved alot the last 2 months of the season averaging 14 pts 5 assists 5 rebs great of the bench)

SG/SF:Sam Young- A monster scorer coming out of Pitt still don't know how they got him

C: Hasheem Thabeet- 7'3 tall, with a 7'6 wingspan can make a immediate impact on the defensive side blocking shots left and right. #2 Pick the Draft

C: Haddidi- 7'2 showed a few flashes of brillance last season i am talking about the GSW game where haddadi had 10 pts 8 rebs in 9 mins going 3-3 from the field all dunks



Rotation:

PG: Allen Iverson/ Mike Conley Jr./ O.J. Mayo
SG: O.J. Mayo/ Allen Iverson/ Sam Young
SF: Rudy Gay/ Sam Young
PF: Zach Randolph/ Darrell Arthur/ Marc Gasol
C: Marc Gasol/ Hasheem Thabeet/ Haddidi

The Haters say- Well they are all chuckers Iverson, Mayo, Gay, Randolph they will be no ball movement just black holes chucking

BS they all get a bad rap for being chuckers when they are not

Iverson- 14.7 shots per game in 35 mins of play. Not that high


Mayo- attempted 15.7 shots per game in 38 mins of play, Compare that with Derrick Rose's 14.9 shots per game in 37 mins of play. They shoot the ball almost identical and nobody calls Rose a chucker. That is a myth we saw false this year.

Randolph- 17.8 FGA in 35 mins of play on 48% shooting. not that much of a chucker


Gay- 16.0 FGA in 37 mins of play which really isn't that high.


When you combined that that is 60.2 FGA. The average team attempts about 80 FGA a game. I don't expect Randolph or AI to shoot that much. So they will be plenty of shots to get both Mayo and Gay up to 20 FGA. Not mention the high pace they should play with AI running point.

Keys to a Successful team-

Need a Passer, A Scorer, A 3pt Shooter, A Sidekick, A Perimeter Defender ( The Pippen- Ariza Affect), Low Post Option, Low Post/ Interior Defense, A Closer. That is all you need it really is just look at this years lakers.


Passer- Mike Conley Jr.
Scorer- O.J. Mayo
SideKick- Rudy Gay
Perimeter Defender ( Pippen-Ariza Affect)- Rudy Gay
Low Post Option- Marc Gasol
Low Post/Interior Defense- Hasheem Thabeet
Closer- Allen Iverson


Waiting for the haters response in 5, 4,3, 2, 1 ............ GO.

Let me tell you this, if the Grizzlies can trade Rudy Gay for a more well rounded, defensive small forward, this team could surprise some people. They'd probably need to add more depth as well but given their cap situation, maybe they throw $ at a very underrated Brandon Bass, and this could be a very underrated sleeper team.

Randolph is gonna look good next to Marc Gasol. Randolph can score consistently in the post. He'll open up outside shots for Mayo. Gasol is a big, physical guy who gives them muscle in the paint and work well next to Zach. Mike Conley from what I know is a capable distributor and capable scorer, not necessarily excelling overwhelmingly at either one. But if you allow Zach and Mayo to be your primary scorers, have Conley distribute, get a SF who can hit the open jumper and guard the other teams best player, and Gasol clean up garbage, THEN you have Iverson off the bench with Brandon Bass and Hasheem Thabeet? That's a team that could at least be in the running for a final playoff seed right till the finish, even if they may not necessarily make it. It could be a quality squad if coached right.

Toronto is the 3rd best team in the East if they get Iverson and Hedo, and trade Anthony Parker to Cleveland for Mo Williams.

If we get Iverson and keep Randolph, we would be the worst team in the entire league, by so f*cking far it wouldn't even funny. The NBA may aswell just tell the team to f*ck off, because this kind of crap doesn't belong in the NBA.

In the NBA, you're suppose to try and win, not create the most disfunctional f*cking team you can, that will be lucky to win 20 games and average any assists at all (but then again, who needs assists? they're overrated). Heisley is a f*cking retard. I thought he had finally changed his ways after the draft, to try and turn this team around, but no, he goes and gets Randolph and now there are rumours of Iverson coming here.

The FO of this team makes me sick. We either need a new owner or someone needs to knock that f*cker out and lock him in a small room until the offseason is over.

They need to hire Avery Johnson. He's going to implement the San Antonio Spurs System, and Memphis will become a great defensive team in the Regular Season.

The Dallas Mavericks were the best defensive Team in the NBA under Coach Avery Johnson.

The Grizzlies has a lot of potential, but they need to find a good coach.
