For many, the issue with Hammon is just because of how the last two former assistant coaches worked out. If it weren’t for Fizz and JB, more would be good with that move.

getting deservedly torched in the comments here gives me some hope that not everyone is falling for BS post-modernist narratives.

Side Porch Steakhouse is good if you can leave the dogs alone for a bit. There’s a Sear Shack if you want your cow a little faster.

We are spoiled and blessed with great announcers on both TV and Radio. You guys really know the game, the team and also how this fan base works. Enjoy your offseason.

Not surprised by that, either. Memphis used to rank top 10 in playoff viewership before the Grizz moved here. From that perspective, respect to Norfolk and Birmingham for doing the same without a local team.

Not sure about this year, but a few years ago the Grizz were in the top 5 in local market viewership. People here aren’t just watching other teams.

People don’t see it as much, but Wexler has done a great job on the business and operations side. He will be a great overall face of the franchise.

Wexler/Kleiman are well-respected, smart, and rose quickly for a reason. Surround them with basketball minds and they’ll be successful. They care about this city. I believe in them Lock down JV,find HC w/ experience developing young talent,and build a winning culture

It wouldn’t surprise me to see them paired up in the US Open Cup@at some point. And there is rising support for pro-rel here in the US, which would open the door for more.

The missed opportunity of 09 should be a cautionary tail for all Grizz fans.

National media who don’t know anything. The Grizzlies aren’t going anywhere.

LOL wrong. Hardcore hoops fans here are watching both at the same time. And there are many. And it isn’t just hoops. Memphis was the number one market in the US for a Champion’s League match a couple of months ago. This town delivers sports tv ratings. Period.

There are many who like the Grizz but supported other teams before they moved here. And there are always the bandwagon people. Every town has those.

Having JJJ and JV gives the incoming staff options. Two really talented post players who can play together or rotate, depending on the opponent and game plan. This is a no-brainer. And always, always, ALWAYS draft best available. If that lines up with what you need, great.

There’s no guarantee that any assistant will translate. Fizz and JB both had strong assistant track records. However, players who go to the Spurs do tend to develop additional skills and max out what they can do. Especially role players. That’s important in building a team.

Wallace free-wheeling in front of the media is likely one of several reasons why he’s gone and why Wexler is now the face of all aspects of the franchise. There won’t be any more of that under him. He’s more polished and deliberate.

Think about it. One of the biggest issues over the years has been mixed messaging going public, sometimes right in front of the cameras. Yesterday is a great example. I’m sure the PR and public face of things will be much smoother with him being the primary messenger.
