It’s been an interesting, exciting start to the NBA season for the Memphis Grizzlies and all the Grit ‘N’ Grind fans. With the departure of Tony Allen and Z Bo, the future and play style of the team was uncertain to begin the season. However, the grind has continued from past seasons. The boys are currently top dogs in the West, with a 5-2 record. Those 5 wins includes 2 games against the Rockets and one versus the Warriors. This is the best start of season since the 2012 – 2013 season, the same season we went to the Western Conference Finals. The dirty, gritty, tough nosed defensive style is still the bread and butter of the squad. However the addition of Tyreke Evans and the return of a healthy Parsons and Chalmers, has given the team more youth, speed, shooting, and floor spacing. The Grit ‘N’ Grind ain’t dead. It’s just evolving. This team is putting the league on notice and definitely playoff bound, barring no major injuries. How good do you think the squad is this year?
