Mike Conley 19 Points/4 Assists Full Highlights (2/19/2013)

Mike Conley is a supremely average player. In the NBA. Which means he’s one of the top point guards in the world. Kind of weird to think about it that way, but there it is. That doesn’t mean that anyone really knows who he is. In a league full of flashy point guards that like…

Tony Allen 19 Points Full Highlights (2/12/2013)

Tony Allen is a defensive specialist. But it is hard to make highlights of that; blocks and steals are okay, but preventing somebody from driving into the paint is not really a “highlight”. So when a defensive specialist has a good offensive game, I jump at the chance to make highlights. It tells the viewer,…

Jerryd Bayless 29 Points Full Highlights (2/5/2013)

What are the Grizzlies doing? They parlayed Rudy Gay into some decent players, okay, that’s fine, his contract sucked. The real head-scratcher is trading three decent players for a scrubbity scrubster (#FreeJonLeuer). I get that’s they want to be underneath the salary cap. But it seems like they’re being a little hasty in tearing apart…

Tayshaun Prince 14 Points (Grizzlies Debut) Full Highlights (2/1/2013)

“Hey Tayshaun, we need to talk.” It was Mike Conley. “Why don’t you come with me to the weight room.” Tayshaun drained a last three-pointer before following Mike out of the gym. He walked into the weight room and saw Austin Daye sitting on the bench press, with the rest of his new Grizzlies teammates…

Marc Gasol 20 Points/2 Dunks Full Highlights (1/25/2012)

Have you seen that picture of Marc Gasol in high school? He was a total fatty. But the rolls of blubber encasing his body disguised the potential that bubbled in his veins. In between eating whole boxes of ho-hos and ding-dongs, Gasol would studiously work on his post moves and footwork, waiting patiently for the…

Darrell Arthur 20 Points Full Highlights (1/23/2013)

I think Grizzlies fans may overrate Darrell Arthur a bit. When he got injured and missed the whole of last year, many of them claimed that their relative lack of success in the playoffs was because of his absence. “Just wait.” they said. “Next year when Darrell Arthur comes back we are going to make…

Wayne Ellington Career High 26 Points (6 Threes) Full Highlights (1/7/2013)

Wayne “Spooky Sk” Ellington is just your average NBA player. He wakes up in his lavishly appointed condominium, goes to practice in his fancy car, drains a bunch of jump shots, goes back home, plays in that night’s game, then probably goes out to party and meet chicks before going to bed and repeating it…

Mike Conley 18 Points/12 Assists Full Highlights (12/1/2012)

The Grizzlies are cruising early in the season, mauling several opponents to death and clawing others to shreds. Last night the Spurs took them down in OT, but only with the aid of several highly-trained zookeepers equipped with tranquilizer darts. Mike Conley is leading the charge, consistently finding his skilled big-men in their preferred spots…

Marreese Speights 18 Points/1 Three-Pointer Full Highlights (11/18/2012)

Maarreesse Speights has always been kind of a middling NBA player. Actually he still is. However, he knows his role, and that allows him to play efficiently in the minutes he gets. He knows that he should never ever take three-pointers. That shows maturity and knowledge of one’s own limitations. Wait, my phone’s ringing, I…

Wayne Ellington Career High 25 Points (7 Threes) Full Highlights 11/11/2012

The Grizzlies have discovered the secret to beating the Heat: shoot a bunch of threes and make most of them. Ellington helped their cause with an amazing shooting performance unseen since his days with the Tar Heels. 25 points on 8 of 13 shooting, 7 of 11 on threes, 3 assists, not bad, not bad…
