Zach Randolph on the 'keys to winning' and the road to success for the Grizzlies

Nelson Chenault-US PRESSWIRE

Zach Randolph spoke with HoopsWorld about what's worked so well for the Grizzlies this season.

A lot of talk this season regarding the Grizzlies has been about the team's maturation, and how they're so successful because, as some put it, they've grown up.

I've made that same point plenty of times on here, specifically at the end of last year when Zach Randolph returned from injury and made it known that his individual accolades were less important than the team's success -- making that clear by coming off the bench and allowing for Marreese Speights to start in his place. Which, as we know, was the right decision at the time. Randolph was not healthy enough to make a 30-plus-minute dent in the rotation and the Grizzlies were rolling with Mo at the 'four.'

In a conversation with Steve Kyler at HoopsWorld.com, Randolph talked about the process of winning, the keys to success, the swagger, and, yes, the team's growth as a core.

Randolph told Kyler that he thought the "continuity" (Kylyer's phrase) of the team, coming along together, was a big part of this team's success. And I wholeheartedly agree with that. The comfort is certainly key. And knowing your spots, knowing to trust your teammates, and feeling comfortable in your role is what makes this team such a dangerous cohesive unit.

The interview is fairly insightful, and I suggest you give it a watch.
