Mike Conley is a Midwest basketball legend.
An Indianapolis high school star, Conley teamed up with fellow Naptown native Greg Oden to lead the Ohio State Buckeyes to the National Championship Game as a freshman. That would be his only season in college, as Conley joined Oden in immediately entering the NBA Draft.
Conley struggled to fulfill expectations during his first several years in the league, but over the last three seasons he has settled into being the kind of security system that every good NBA team needs: a solid, steady point guard. During that time, Conley has averaged roughly 13 points, 6.5 assists, and 2.2 steals per game. Led by Conley (and another Indy native, Zach Randolph) Memphis has become a solid contender in the West, especially this year with a 43-19 record.
That’s a bit about Mike Conley on the court. Now get to know him a little bit off the court, via our friends at ADT.

PLAYA VISTA, Calif. Theres nothing subtle about the Memphis Grizzlies. They are big, physical and unafraid to use their muscle under the basket a fact the Clippers know too well.
With those guys, you know what kind of game its going to be, Clippers center DeAndre Jordan said. Its going to be a grind -- not a dirty grind, but its going to be physical down there. Well be ready for...
The Memphis Grizzlies got by without Zach Randolph during the first four games of their latest surge, but they were certainly happy to see him back in the lineup as it continued.
His presence, though, hasn't been enough to get them past the Los Angeles Clippers in either of this season's meetings.
