In the offseason Grit and Grind basketball acquired the perimeter shooting and playmaking they have desired for years in Florida product, Chandler Parsons. Although the Grizzlies have been a playoff contender in the West for a while they lacked a certain pizzazz, which Parsons brings. This season’s iteration of the Grizzlies should be exhilarating to watch and have a shot at knocking off the Warriors in the Western Conference thanks to their veteran stars. Point guard Mike Conley is as steady as they come and provides the perimeter scoring and passing to compliment big men Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph. Gasol is one of the most skilled scorers in the NBA as well as an excellent defender. The big Spaniard is a surgeon in the low post and an expert facilitator from the elbow. Randolph, who was affectionately dubbed “Z-Bo” is a low post beast who excels as an offensive and defensive rebounder. Adding Parson’s creative playmaking and dead-eye shooting to that mix makes the Grizzlies a scary team in the West.
Off the bench, the Grizzlies have former superstar Vince Carter and a couple gifted youngsters. This year’s draft picks Wade Baldwin and Deyonta Davis are both burgeoning with potential. Baldwin is a dynamic athlete and shooter at the point guard spot, while Davis is a huge and skilled power forward. If the rookies prove ready to compete from Day 1 and Carter provides steady production and leadership then the Grizz will be a force to be reckoned with in a competitive western conference.
