The Memphis Grizzlies should have kept Kevin Love

Blogged under Blast from the Past,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Draft Report by joelapinski on Thursday 27 June 2013 at 8:16 pm

I don’t know how many people remember this, but the Grizzlies picked power forward Kevin Love with the #5 overall pick of the 2008 NBA Draft.  He was dealt on draft night to the Minnesota Timberwolves along with Brian Cardinal, Jason Collins and Mike Miller.  For that quartet, the Grizzlies got O.J. Mayo, Antoine Walker, Greg Buckner and Marko Jaric from the T-Wolves.  Only Mayo really panned out for the Grizzlies out of the guys they got for Love.  Mayo played in 301 games (181 starts) in his four years with the Grizzlies and he averaged 32.8 minutes, 15.2 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.1 steals per game.  Mayo is still #4 in three pointers made (477), #8 in steals (333) and #9 in points scored (4,584) in Grizzlies’ history.  Marko Jaric played in 53 games (0 starts) in his one year with the Grizzlies and he averaged 11.4 minutes, 2.6 points, 1.2 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game.  Greg Buckner also only lasted one year with the Grizzlies, appearing in 63 games (0 starts) in which he averaged 13.9 minutes, 2.5 points, 2.1 rebounds and 0.9 assists per game.  Antoine Walker never played for the Grizzlies.

PF/C Pau Gasol was one of the best players in Grizzlies’ history.  Gasol’s best season for the Grizzlies came back in 2005-06.  Gasol played in 80 games (all starts) for the Grizzlies in 2005-06 and he averaged 39.2 minutes, 20.4 points, 8.9 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 1.9 blocked shots per game.  He played in 476 games (470 starts) in his seven years with the Grizzlies and he averaged 35.5 minutes, 18.8 points, 8.6 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.8 blocked shots per game.  Gasol is still the Grizzlies’ all-time leader in offensive rebounds (1,200), total rebounds (4,096), blocked shots (877) and points scored (8,966).  He is also #2 in games played (476) and he’s #2 in defensive rebounds (2,896) in Grizzlies’ history.  On February 1st, 2008, the Grizzlies dealt Gasol along with a 2nd round pick in 2010 (Devin Ebanks) to the Los Angeles Lakers for Marc Gasol, Kwame Brown, Javaris Crittenton, a 1st round pick in 2008 (Donte Greene) and a 1st round pick in 2010 (Greivis Vasquez).

In 2000, the Vancouver Grizzlies selected power forward Stromile Swift with the #2 overall pick of the NBA Draft.  He played in 441 games (92 starts) in his seven years with the Grizzlies and he averaged 20.4 minutes, 8.7 points, 4.8 rebounds, 0.6 assists and 1.4 blocked shots per game.  Swift’s best season for the Grizzlies came back in 2001-02, which was the first year than they played in Memphis.  Swift played in 68 games (14 starts) for the Grizzlies in 2001-02, in which he averaged 26.5 minutes, 11.8 points, 6.3 rebounds, 0.7 assists and 1.7 blocked shots per game.  Swift is still #3 in games played (441) in Grizzlies’ history.  He is also #8 in offensive rebounds (748), #9 in defensive rebounds (1,380), #8 in total rebounds (2,128), #8 in steals (307) and #2 in blocked shots (607) in Grizzlies’ history.

Blogged under Blast from the Past,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by admin on Sunday 2 December 2012 at 1:48 pm

Jason “White Chocolate” Williams was a solid point guard in his brief time with the Grizzlies.  He played in 195 games in his five years with the Grizzlies and he averaged 29,9 minutes, 11.5 points, 2.3 rebounds, 7.0 assists and 1.3 steals per game.  Williams is still the all-time leader in assists for the Grizzlies with 2,069 of them.  He is also #2 in three point shots made (500) and #5 in steals (372) in Grizzlies’ history.  Williams wasn’t with the Grizzlies for a long time, but he made his mark.

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.

Bryant Reeves is still all over the record books for the Memphis Grizzlies

Blogged under Blast from the Past,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by alleyoop on Saturday 16 January 2010 at 4:12 pm

Former center Bryant “Big Country” Reeves never made it to Memphis to play but he is all over the team’s record books due to his time in Vancouver. Reeves played in 395 games (341 starts) in his career with the Grizzlies and he averaged 30.6 minutes, 12.5 points, 6.9 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game. He is #4 all-time in games played (395), #4 in minutes played (12,071), #3 in rebounds (2,745), #5 in blocked shots (302) and #4 in points scored (4,945) in Grizzlies’ history. Hopefully the Grizzlies keep the young bunch of players they have now together for a while so they can bump Reeves down on a few of these lists.
