Doc Rivers wants an NBA team back in Seattle or Vancouver

The Pacific Northwest has not had an NBA team since the Seattle Sonics moved to Oklahoma City in 2008 to become the Thunder. However, at least one prominent NBA coach wants to see an NBA team back in the area. Doc Rivers said he would like an NBA team in either Vancouver or Seattle. — Ben Bolch (@latbbolch) October 4, 2015 ">It is an interesting comment from Los Angeles...

Marc Gasol bet Zach Randolph that Z-Bo couldn't get to 10 dunks this year

Zach Randolph has never been the most athletic guy on the court. The common joke is that he struggles to jump over a piece of paper. Place the whole phonebook under him and who knows how ugly things are going to get. But that doesn't mean Z-Bo is lacking in confidence. Randolph and his teammate, Marc Gasol, jumped on NBATV recently to talk about the Grizzlies upcoming season and...

Tony Allen: “Mike Conley has gotten better after he started listening to 2Pac and Future and ditched Usher”

I think it’s safe to say that Memphis Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley is one of the most underrated players at his position. During the 2015 NBA Playoffs, Conley showed everyone who doesn’t get to watch him how good he really is. While many believe the Grizzlies will be in the thick of the playoff race in the Western Conference, the buzz about Conley has them thinking bigger...

Grizzlies announcer Pranica flies with Thunderbirds

On the basketball court, the Grizzlies' middle pick and roll with Marc Gasol and Mike Conley is the epitome of power, speed and precision. Gasol sets the solid screen, Conley darts around it and ends up with two high-percentage offensive options: his deadly floater in the lane or a slick dish to Gasol for a layup. In another milieu, far removed from hoops and backboards, the US Air...

Marc Gasol: Memphis will try to sign Pau Gasol

“Join me, and together we can rule the galaxy as brother and brother,” said Marc Gasol, breathing heavily through his durasteel helmet as he stood menacingly over older sibling Pau on Cloud City. OK, maybe I got the Gasol family Thanksgiving dinner confused with a scene from The Empire Strikes Back, but as it turns out, that image might not be too far from the truth. In an...

New Faces in Beale St. Blue

The Memphis Grizzlies quietly had one of the better offseasons of any of the 30 NBA teams. Memphis surprised no one by re-signing its franchise cornerstone, Marc Gasol, to a max contract worth $110 million over five years. Then, in a masterful flipping of assets, Memphis acquired Luke Ridnour for basically nothing (no offense Jannis Timma) and immediately traded him for veteran...

Memphis Grizzlies: Exactly how good is Mike Conley?

Drafted by the Memphis Grizzlies in 2007 as the 4th overall pick behind Durant, Love, and Oden, Mike Conley has blossomed into an above average player and borderline All-Star after his first few (slightly disappointing) years in the league . Conley (rookie year stats: 9.4 PPG, 4.2 APG, 0.8 STL) definitely had a bit of a slow start in his rookie campaign due to fighting for minutes...

Memphis Grizzlies keep it old school: It’s a big man’s game

Great teams in NBA history have had great big men: Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, Shaquille O’Neal, Patrick Ewing, and Tim Duncan, to name a few. However, the NBA has experienced a recent push for “small ball.” Teams sacrifice the height, strength, and low-post shooting of tall players for the speed, quickness, and mid-range to three-point shooting of shorter players.

Gilbert Arenas on LeBron: He’s not a No. 1 option

by Josh Poloha Former Washington Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas has not played in a game since 2012 (and is still somehow getting paid, but that’s beside the point), but he still has his fair share of opinions on the NBA.
