The Memphis Flyer‘s Chris Herrington has written a great piece about Lionel Hollins — who, as we’ve discussed here before, is in the last year of his current contract — and whether or not the Grizzlies’ head coach will be back next season, and whether or not he should be back.

I’m not going to copy-and-paste the four things here. You need to clear a little chunk of time and go read the piece for yourself.
Herrington, as ever, has a very nuanced, clear-eyed take on a situation about which other media outlets have not proven themselves be so neutral.
