Grind Prophecies: The Job Hunt

Kevin C. Cox

With the Memphis coaching situation still in flux, we take a moment for foresight and blind luck. This is the offseason edition of Grind Prophecies.

The Grizzlies offseason has filled my mind with an uncontrollable amount of uncertainty. Uncertainty, if unchecked, causes me to make outlandish predictions like, "ZBo will average 9 and 10 next season." I don't necessarily think that, but I have no idea what's happening with this management team and so my brain is going through a spiral of doubts and pessimistic wishes. I have mentally prepared for, not only the departure of Lionel, but also that of Tony and Zach Randolph (not saying I think this will happen).

What most fans thought would be a quick process of rehiring Lionel Hollins has actually been the exact opposite. Lionel is officially out of consideration and quite possibly could find himself coaching a Western Conference rival. With all of this uncertainty, I though I would open a forum to display everyone's uncertainty with a small round of Grind Prophecies. Now there are no prizes for this offseason edition; only pride can be won.

So have at it, grind on and may God have mercy on our uncertain souls.
