    Word - I feel that. He just in NY was in a position not to succeed - but let's be honest, dude put up 20/10 in NY - how much more can you ask from your PF, really?

    Z-Bo going for 34-10 against Perkins!

    Memphis look excellent as a team. Not one guy shying away.

    My second favourite team right now. Tony Allen is a beast, Z-Bo is playing at an All-Star level and Marc Gasol looks better than Pau right now.

    I also like Conley, nice young and athletic playmaker.

    Man I wish we could have played with the same heart, energy and IQ against Boston.

    Credit to Lionel Hollins, I thought he was a clown when he booted Iverson in 2009, but I gotta admit he's doing a great job in Memphis.

    Fire D'Antoni, hire Hollins, trade Billups for Conley and sign Gasol as a FA lol

    Yeah their my 2nd favorite team to watch too. I can really see them eliminating OKC since they match up so well with them.

    **** I heard Memphis beat them 3-1 during the year.. Most of those were probably with Rudy Gay too.

    Nba Logo The Performance of Gasol, Zach, and Battier are KEEPERS

    The First game of Memphis vs OKC .......Headcoach Hollins Strategy to
    win the series vs the 1 seeded Spurs team was great and upsetting.
    But damn! Props have to go out to the strategic moves Hollins used
    on OKC in their first game of the series....it was just OUTSTANDING-Coaching!!!

    Perkins having all kinds of problems with Gasol on the glass
    Ibaka & Perkins cant stop Zach
    Durant is trying every trick in his book on defenders Battier & Tony Allen
    Sef & Harding were being presured by Mayo & Tony Allan
    Westbrook had problems passing in Memphis tight team-defense,
    plus Conley speed and dribble kept Westbrook outside the 3-ball line so
    Westbrook couldnt double-team or be a help defender on any Memphis players.
    GREAT Strategic coaching.....knowing your oponents strong & weak areas

    We dont wont to recall all of the foolishness of this Knicks Franchise
    since the offseason we traded Ewing and drafted Weis over Artest.
    And only a FOOL would think Walsh decision-making was better than
    Laydum and hated Isiah Thomas.
    Walsh decision-making has been as stupid as Clippers GM Dunleavy
    and GS GM Chris Mullin

    Zach & Crawful will not be the only one to prove Walsh is an IDIOT
    who shouldve retired when headcoach Larry Bird quit the Pacers...

    How is the guy that got rid of all of Isiah's bad contracts an idiot? Walsh never hired a 400 pound center that doesn't play defense a max contract, never gave Jeffries a ridiculously big contract, never gave Jerome James a max contract, and never traded for Marbury's enormous contract that Phoenix thought they were stuck with and thought no one would take. Your cuckoo for coco puffs if you would rather have Isiah than Walsh.

    I was in amazement of the Grizzlies play against OKC. That's a team with a plan. You can see the coaching of Lionel Hollins shining through.

    Agree with you.

    I'd like to see coach Hollins in New York, seems to be a tough guy who sticks to his plan and doesn't give a damn about superstars or the media. He manhandled Iverson and calls his players by their full name, he yelled 'Mike Conley' at Conley and he immediately approached his coach at the sideline to receive his orders. That's what i call respect!

    Mike wants to be friends with his players and basically lets them decide what to do, at least with the superstars. Has he ever called out STAT for his defense or defensive rebounding?

    back to topic: Any chance the Grizz might copy us and go to the Finals as 8th seed?

    I think they have a chance to beat OKC 4-2 or 4-3.
    Is Vazquez a rookie? He's impressive and I like his spirit, stepping up when it matters most.

    Beating the Spurs looks like it was Mem was too good not that SA was too old now that they took one of the youngest and most talented teams in the NBA to school. I am shocked they took game 1 in OKC that's a tough place for a road team to get a W.

    Still hard for me to imagine Mem as an 8 seed going to the show but good luck to them, it will be a hell of a story if they make it to the finals.

    I did not read the whole thread but both did not fail in NYC.

    Zbo was playing great but had a bad contract so he was traded in order to free up space.

    Jamal had brilliant stretches in NYC but is best suited coming off the bench. Jamal's problem in NYC was that he thought he was a star and is only now thriving in the right role as an energy player surrounded by strong franchise players that can keep his ego in check.

    IMO this problem concerns Mike's personnel decisions, he's the one who mostly decides whom he recommends to have on his roster, we don't even have to look back to 2008 or 2009, let's take a look at Anthony Randolph we traded to the Wolves this season:

    So would you rather have Zbo and Crawford or Amare and MELO?
