Point Guards

Blogged under Front Page by Nothing but Net on Monday 30 October 2006 at 10:18 pm

Damon Stoudamire is back after only playing 27 games last season before needing knee surgery. Stoudamire is a tough, little guy that runs a team well. Stoudamire has averaged 14.5 points per game, 3.7 rebounds, 6.5 assists and 1.2 steals in his 756 game career. The Grizzlies would take anything close to those career norms and be happy.

Chucky Atkins is the back-up. Atkins is more of a shoot-first point guard, that doesn’t pile up the assists. Atkins has played an average of 26.4 minutes per game in his career and has averaged 10.5 points per game. Atkins only averages 3.5 assists per game over his career, so he comes in to shoot.

Kyle Lowry was a late first round pick for the Grizzlies and could be the future for the Grizzlies at the point position, but Fratello likes to play the veterans.

Grizzlies to be without best player

Pau Gasol, the Grizzlies best player by far, will be out until January after having surgery on his foot. The Grizzlies will need Stromile Swift to step up while Gasol is out. Swift has the talent, but he doesn’t always play 100%.

Mike Fratello

Mike Fratello is a good coach that gets the most out of his players during the regular season, but it never translates to the post-season. Fratello is 89-63 as head coach of the Grizzlies, and he’s done a good job in Memphis. For his 16-year career, Fratello has a 661-528 record.

Fratello gets out-coached badly in the playoffs and is 0-8 as head coach of the Grizzlies. In 11 playoff appearances in his career, Fratello is 20-42!
