It's sad. I feel like the NBA has very poor marketers because every team has marketable players. Obviously okc has kd and westy who are on commercials but Memphis has Gasol, Conley (genuinely good guys) and tony (plays harder than most nba players)

Didn't like the call on Allen's block, and didn't like the call right back at it on Fisher's block on Conley. Both are too tight for a game 7, let them play.

Overall, fun half. The coaching adjustments are interesting.

Gasol and Conley could have a nice two man game. Conley forces it sometime and causes the turnover. But it can be dangerous when executed well.

this does stink of the NBA giving OKC a free ride to the finals. You can't lose KD in this tournament so knock off MEM. They didn't even give MEM the benefit of some calls w/ Gasol tonight. But it is what it is.

Memphis couldn't have asked for much more from Gasol, he just didn't have enough help.

Maybe a few more rbs lol

Agreed, can't believe the NBA shot 65% from 3 against them, too. It's like... can you be MORE obvious?

An often overlooked suspension is calathes. He was a great defender and our backup pg and was very important to us. The last drug related suspension was Oj mayo a few years ago while he was a grizzlie.

Sums it up. Bet okc loses the next series

I believe you might be right, fadeway. Be real hard for the league to choose between BG and CP /KD and WB. At least OKC should thank us for finally getting WB not to be such a chucker anymore and pass the ball.

I like how this thread already has the Clips in round 2.

But because of "the NBA" (formerly ''Stern", but no longer convenient), not their talent.

The Grizzlies deserve a hand and some credit, I don' know what more they could have done shorthanded in that tough environment.

that was just ridiculous, since when is the NBA Major League Baseball.

We know they have players on roids. We know. But we're not the MLB suspending every player.

If LeBron James or Dwayne Wade were to fail to a drug test tomorrow, they ain't telling anybody, trust me.

Great series by the Grizz as expected. But, the better team prevailed.

Yes, it was a great season. Way exceeded my expectations after all our injuries.
To get to 50 wins without Gasol for 2 months, TA for over a month and Conley for a couple of weeks, we did well. And then this adversity in Game 7. ....I am VERY proud of this team. Most talking heads didn't think it would go but 5 games. THANKS, GRIZZLIES !!!!!!

Joerger tried. Valiant effort by a rookie coach.
Great effort by a hobbled team.
Prime KD and WB are too much, but does WB have to be so smarmy?
I swear I will never buy Subway again as long as I live.

LOL!.... That's just the way WB is. To me, he's one of the most unlikable guys in the league just cause how he acts on the court. Not his talents or anything like that, but the way he acts out there is annoying & over the top.

Good season for you guys. It's unfortunate they robbed the fans of a fair game 7, but it is what it is I guess. All things considered, the Grizz played about as well as they probably could with the suspensions and injuries they were dealing with.

Lot of credit to him. I thought he did a lot of good things this post season. But tonight, the cards were stacked against him and he did what he could with what he had.

Yea they were better, and I wasn't sure how they'd be with a new coach. But they did really well, Lee was a good pick up, Miller, Udrih, etc... I mean, I still don't get how they couldn't see Z-Bo wasn't throwing a punch. Mind boggling

You hit the nail on the head. Great player ; irritating arrogant person. Seeing Durant in every other commercial on TNT or ESPN is bad enough. And he's a like able guy off the court.
As to game 7, losing ZBo's 18 points per game certainly hurt and was the difference.
I imagine he's hurting way more than the rest of us tonight. For the long haul, I hope you guys go the distance. For tonight I'd prefer the Clips. So good luck the rest of the way and I'll be checking in on you guys.

ZBo really did it this time, letting his team down for a stupid punch!

He let them down BIG TIME!
