The Memphis Grizzlies are coming off of another very solid season, where they ended up coming up short in Game 7 of the first round of the NBA Playoffs against the Oklahoma City Thunder. They finished the season with a 50-32 record, and had a fairly even offseason as far as losses and acquisitions. It’s going to be a very interesting season to watch the Grizzlies this season, and they are expected to be a threat in the Western Conference once again.
Memphis did lose sharpshooter in Mike Miller to the Cleveland Cavaliers in free agency, but they added a player that will likely be even more of a difference maker. The Grizzlies signed Vince Carter to a three-year contract this offseason, and he will fill in off the bench very nicely. He is a scorer still, even at this stage of his career, and is a perfect leader to have with the second unit.
There are some concerns surrounding the team, but they still have the same core that forced a Game 7 with the Thunder last year. It should be another very good season for the Grizzlies and their fans, but they likely haven’t added enough to beat out teams like the San Antonio Spurs and the Thunder. If they are able to play up to their potential, they are a very dangerous team that could end up surprising someone in the first round of the playoffs.
