    There is no bias here.

    Your backcourt is the only good thing that would do damage against Memphis, their 3, 4 and 5 wouldn't even give you guys a chance at a rebound.

    They have a much better and well rounded starting 5 than the nets, and they actually play D.

    LOL Wut? While I agree that Memphis has a very good starting 5, that is a terrible argument. Gerald Wallace is one of the best rebounders at the 3 position. Averaged around 8 the last 3 seasons. Wallace is a better rebounder than Gay (who is extremely overrated in my opinion, good player, but not great.) Not going to lie, ZBo is a great rebounder and player but Humphries was top 5 in the league last year. And for as good as a player as Marc Gasol is, he has never averaged double digit rebounds, only averaging 7 per game this year. So why Lopez is a bad rebounder, Marc Gasol is just an average one too.

    Overall, their starting lineups are both very equal. I do love Memphis' balance throughout the starting lineup, but since I am biased, I'll take the Nets starting 5 over the Grizz, also think that D-Will is the best player.

    G
    With Gasol/Zach Brooklyn is not going to get any offensive boards.
    Crash who I love isn't exactly going to stop Rudy Gay.
    Lopez/Humphries/Crash aren't going to do anything to that front court unless they are perfect from away the paint.

    Deron may be the best player but how exactly would that starting 5 defend Memphis squad enough for them to outscore them?

    At the very least, I would expect the Nets to hold their own against them. Nets aren't the best defensive team, but coming from someone who's pretty much seen every Nets game thus far, they're slowly but surely improving on that front. Memphis would most likely win due to their experience and strogner commitment to playing defense, but the disparities between the two teams aren't THAT far apart like some people on here are making it seem imo.

    By the way, I'm pretty sure netsgiantsyanks meant he'd take the Nets backcourt and Grizzlies frontcourt.

    Humphies is a great rebounder, he has a nose for the ball you cannot discount that. Gerald Wallce is one of the best rebouding SF's as well.

    bruh, Gerald Wallace is a MUCH better rebounder than Rudy Gay, 8 days out the week papo....I'm a bobcats fan I could care less about this argument but Wallace is one of the best rebounding 3's in the game. aldo, humphries aint no punk when it comes to rebounding, your point was horrible and i guarantee when memphis plays brooklyn the rebounding will be close to equal

    Fun fact, Memphis has been wining on the strength of its bench.

    "It’s absolutely ludicrous” (to judge players based on whether they’ve won a title.)
