- Reaction score
Memphis has a lot of talent... but man... that team seems stupid. The careless turnovers the awful shots they take... they're very similar to last year's Suns (playing with a chip on their shoulder, playing with a lot of swagger, wanting to crush teams) but at the same time very different... as in... they're stupid. They seem to think they're the Harlem Globe Trotters, they're up against the Generals, they're fated to win by 30... but, the opposition seems to now and then, and the Grizz don't know how to react.
Yeah that's why I'm saying I'm not sure Jenkins is the guy longterm, he may be Mark Jackson for them. They're the best defensive team in the league, but their offense relies on offensive rebounding because they take a ton of bad shots. I love Ja but if the NBA decided to call the carries the way they said they were going to(and did for about a week), Ja would be hurt by it more than anybody else in the league he carries the ball constantly. Amazing player, but still has work to do. He's improved his defense but still I don't get why teams don't go after more he's still not a very good defender just goes for blocks and steals.
I still say they're going to be an elite team and they still have the 2nd best record in the West but man 4 in a row and probably 3 of them were games they had no business losing.
