The Long View: Ja Morant dazzles in preseason opener, early rotation hints?

Ja Morant is awesome. What can we also take from last night’s rotation?

The Memphis Grizzlies kicked off preseason with a bang. The only defense against Ja Morant last night were the fire alarms that cancelled the game.

But in all seriousness...

There will be times this year where I’ll run a “Long View” recap on the podcast, similar to last year’s style of full recap I posted on the blog. So make sure you let me know how you like this and if I should continue.

Long-View points hit:

  • Ja Morant’s dazzling performance, and what his aggression means for the Grizzlies’ system and his All-Star aspirations.
  • How Desmond Bane and De’Anthony Melton can both be enhanced regardless of who starts
  • Kyle Anderson’s shift to the 4 off the bench, and what it means for potential rotation and those affected
