The beginning of the 2015-2016 NBA season is nearly upon us. The season will be full of ups and downs, highs and lows, incredible games and less than stellar performances. The season will be filled with dizzying highs and depressing lows.
But before this all starts, let's have a little fun, shall we??
There's an app for my Android phone called Ditty that will "sing" your text message. And now that app will sing my Memphis Grizzlies preview. Let's do this!!!!!
This will be a common theme throughout the season. Joerger has said that he will change the roster, especially the wing combinations between Lee, Green, TA, Vince Carter (maybe), and new arrival Matt "I swear I'm not as crazy as Marvin" Barnes. Just start TA and let the rest fall in place.
Contract year Marc Gasol worked out last year, didn't it??? Let's see what Mike can do.
Saying that Marc Gasol would become the best center in the NBA last season was not a stretch. He dominated other centers last season, played like a maniac all season long, and chased LMA out of Portland. He is now the king of the paint. Even if the wings change, the center remains the same.
In his preview, Matt Hrdlicka wrote about the statistical anomaly that is ZBo. The killer point was that there has not been a historical view of what Zach Randolph has been, so we have no idea what it will become. This can be construed as a negative, but playing next to Marc Gasol and drawing a less talented defender is definitely a positive step forward. He spent last season learning about his role. Now it is time to do it.
Start TA. Just do it.
I have been wrong about him. I voted him as the Most Disappointing Grizzly last season, and was summarily thrashed by statistics and writers that are smarter than I am. I get it. He is good.
Just shoot the ball.
What more can be said.
And I looked, and there was a pale horse! Its rider's name was death, and Hell followed behind him- Revelation 6:8
I like the Grizzlies adding Barnes to the roster. He can shoot a little and plays tough. So, when do we start the Matt Barnes first suspension date raffle???
I can not accurately assess Wright's place on this team because I have not watched a preseason game. I hear he is struggling to find his place, but that can change quickly. He has a lot of potential and is on a cheapish deal. Wright almost has to add a spark of offense to a bench unit. He certainly is tall and long.
This is what it is
Don't we all. Here's a sad one from my heart.
THE 2015-2016 MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES PREDICTION!!!!!!
Have fun this year...and be excellent to each other
