Allen Iverson to continue career with Memphis Grizzlies

Blogged under Big Grizzlies News,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Uncategorized by Andrew on Wednesday 9 September 2009 at 2:52 pm

“God chose Memphis as the place where I will continue my career. I met with Mr. Heinsley, Chris Wallace and my next head coach Lionel Hollins.”  That was Allen Iverson’s twitter post this morning as he has announced that he is ready to sign with the Memphis Grizzlies.  Iverson had career lows in points, steals, and minutes this past season and will probably not get a deal anything close to the $20 million he was pulling down last year.  The number seems to be closer to $3.5 million for the season.

I’m not so sure that this is a good deal for the Grizzlies.  They already have some very talented and already proven young guards in O.J. Mayo and Rudy Gay.  They are also hoping for a big break out year from point guard Mike Conley.  So, Iverson may have to come off the bench, and we all saw how he handled that in Detroit.

When Detroit traded Chauncey Billups to the Denver Nuggets for Iverson last November, the success followed Billups and not Iverson.  Billups helped Carmello Anthony take that next step as a player as they won their division and made it to the Western Conference Finals, where they lost to the eventual NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers.  Detroit on the other hand went 39-43 and Iverson basically quit on the team and was granted a leave from the team from April 3rd on.  The Pistons barely snuck into the playoffs at the 8th spot without Iverson and they were easily swept by the Cleveland Cavaliers.  Iverson’s frustration is bound to return as his situation hasn’t seemed to change much in Memphis, so be ready for a midseason feud with Iverson and the Grizzlies’ coaches.

The Grizzlies were outscored 30-9 in the first quarter and they never came close to making them points up last night. Mike Miller led the way for the Grizzlies with 21 points and 9 rebounds. Rudy Gay had a decent game as he finished with 14 points, 6 rebounds and 2 steals. Juan Carlos Navarro pitched in with 14 points and 3 rebounds. The Grizzlies fell to 12-31 on the season with this loss.

Hakim Warrick is playing well off of the bench for the Memphis Grizzlies

Hakim Warrick might not be getting much playing time this season but he’s making the most of it. He is shooting the ball extremely well from the floor as he is hitting 51%. Warrick has played in 26 games this season for the Grizzlies and he is averaging 13.5 minutes, 7.0 points, 2.5 rebounds and 0.2 assists per game. Warrick would be ready to step in and start if one of the forwards are injured.

The Memphis Grizzlies are pleased with the play of their rookies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,Rookie Reports,Uncategorized by alleyoop on Monday 31 December 2007 at 1:03 am

The Grizzlies have to be pleased with the play of guards Juan Carlos Navarro and Mike Conley Jr. so far this season. Conley was the first round pick of the Grizzlies but he hasn’t played much due to injury. He has played in 5 games this season and he is averaging 14.4 minutes, 5.6 points, 1.0 rebound and 4.2 assists per game. He also has shot well as he is hitting 47.4% of his shots from the floor and 81.8% from the free throw line. Juan Carlos Navarro is soaking up a lot of the playing time that Mike Conley Jr. would have been getting and he is running with it. Navarro has played in 28 games so far this season and he is averaging 23.6 minutes, 10.5 points, 2.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game.
