Now ask yourself this, are any of what I just said within the realm of possibility?
The last one is, because D'Antoni is such a great coach, right DK?
I heard during the summer pro league that NONE of the Memphis Grizzlies averaged more than 17 pts/game. I know they were such a great grind out defensive team but the bench will also be a huge factor.
I like what I saw in Meeks and Blake, Hill was doing good until the injury and when D'Antoni came along. So I cringe at the thought of Mike burying him on the bench.
Will they resign Jamison?
Will Nash/Pau pick and roll be so much better than they had last season?
Can Nash stay healthy?
I love the days before the Kobe/Shaq era with Del Harris finding out ways to make it work with players like Peeler, Lynch etc.
Expectations are low, I can just hope and dream that they will not tank and instead work harder and come up with a few good surprises.
