A Big Shout-out to the Memphis Grizzlies
Zach Randolph, someone that no team wanted to deal with just a year ago, has emerged as a bonafide star. I’m not going to lie, I had lost faith in the kid too. He’s been putting up great numbers for virtually his entire career but he was always trouble. Now, he has a new sense of resilience, determination and desire to will his team to victory. That trickled down and this Grizzlies team pulled off a huge series victories. This is huge for the franchise. That Pau Gasol trade doesn’t look so much like highway robbery anymore, does it? They thoroughly outplayed the Spurs and looked like the better team for the entire series.
Worth noting: The Griz beat the Thunder 3 out of 4 times during the regular season. Let’s see if they can continue to impress. They’ve shown us that they’re a serious team now and I’d be more than happy to see them keep that ball rolling.
Oh yea, and FYI, they’re playing without Rudy Gay. Yea.
