Shareef Abdur-Rahim was one of the best players in Grizzlies’ history

Blogged under Blast from the Past,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by admin on Friday 27 May 2011 at 6:58 pm

Forward Shareef Abdur-Rahim was one of the best Grizzlies’ in team history but he never played a game in Memphis.  He played in 375 games (366 starts) in his five years with the Vancouver Grizzlies and he averaged 38.0 minutes, 20.8 points, 8.2 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.0 blocked shot per game.  Abdur-Rahim is #2 in Grizzlies’ history in points scored with 7,801 of them.  He is also #5 in games played (375), #6 in assists (1,081), #2 in rebounds (3,070), #3 in steals (416) and he’s #4 in blocked shots (374) in Grizzlies’ history.  It’s too bad that the fans of Memphis never got to see Abdur-Rahim play because he was a darn good basketball player.

29-year old power forward Zach Randolph was outstanding for the Grizzlies last year.  He played in 75 games (74 starts) for the Grizzlies last year and he averaged 36.3 minutes, 20.1 points, 12.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game as he shot 50.3% from the floor.  Randolph is already 8th in Grizzlies’ history witih 1,864 rebounds despite last year being only his second with the team.  Randolph has now played in 662 games (534 starts) in his NBA career and he has averaged 31.7 minutes, 17.6 points, 9.2 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game.  Randolph seems to be getting better with age and the Grizzlies are going to continue to benefit from that.

Lionel Hollins did a great job for the Memphis Grizzlies last year

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Steppin Up by admin on Tuesday 17 May 2011 at 6:37 pm

57-year old head coach Lionel Hollins did a great job last year for the Grizzlies.  He led them to a 46-36 (56.1%) record during the regular season and a 7-6 (53.8%) record during the playoffs.  He led the Grizzlies to their first ever series win when they defeated the Spurs, which was very impressive.  Hollins is now 117-150 (42.8%) during the regular season in his first five years as the Grizzlies’ head coach.  He is also 7-6 (53.8%) in the post-season.  The Grizzlies are a team on the rise and Hollins appears to be the right guy for the job in leading them to where they want to go.
