Yes they can, Grizz function like the Pistons in 04. Solid contribution from all positions, in the finals one of them will step up as an elite player.

But I don't think they can beat Miami

*I know Dirk is a star but it wasn't just their offense that won it all.

That team is stacked. They don't have a superstar, but they have go to GUYS. Rudy Gay is a strong win scorer, 2 great post players, good pg play, good defense. As long as they hit their outside shots, what don't they have that you need to win a title?


Still a bit of a long shot, but they have a window.

Sure. I think they have the best frontline in the league and they are very solid in each position.

They don't have a superstar, but that doesn't mean they won't be able to win it all. They have nice options and go to guys in the 4th. I think they could if they keep playing well like this. But will they? That's another story. We don't know how they will do against the other teams in the playoffs. But they can definitely put up a fight.

Grizzlies only usually play well from January onwards.. but this season they have actually started well.. better than well.. they have the best record in the league.

The sky is the limit.. the players are the right age.. enough experience together.. anything can happen.

But all it takes is an injury or two.. and everything can fall apart.

Interesting you say that do you think its possible the Grizz might peak to early this season? I certainly hope not they are a joy to watch.

No idea.. they are young and growing, like the Thunder have been over the years.. and each season it seems it takes until New Year until they start to learn properly and understand everything.. and then it clicks.. and they become one of the best teams. The year that they won in the playoffs.. they took that momentum into the playoffs and were a top team even though they were only 8th seed.

It's never happened that they've had such a good start.. so who knows.. teams will figure them out.. that always happens.. but they are quite balanced.. and going into the New Year.. maybe they will improve again. As a Grizz fan, I'm mostly just scared of an injury to Conley/Gasol/Z-Bo/Gay.

Yeah they can win it all. They're somewhat what the Spurs used to be like ten years ago. Gritty defensive team with great post players. Who says Rudy Gay can't have somewhat of a Dirk 2011 kind of playoffs around Gasol/Randolph?

out of the core 4, if 3 kept playing just like they were and just one player really stepped it up, absolutely.


also, if you go back to the 2011 Zbo probably had the second best playoff performance behind Dirk

Without any one dynamic superstar, which it appears they don't have.
