The Memphis Grizzlies’ season is over after suffering a play-in loss to the Portland Trailblazers. The future is still bright, Grizz Nation!
Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr. are awesome. Brandon Clarke and Jonas Valanciunas are great complements for Jackson and Morant. Dillon Brooks, Grayson Allen, Justise Winslow, and De’Anthony Melton are solid young perimeter players. Taylor Jenkins and Zach Kleiman are wise beyond their years, already (arguably) top-10 in their respective roles.
And the Grizzlies are no longer having to pay for the sins of the Jeff Green trade!
Grizz life is good. Listen to the GBB Podcast network.
