The preseason rankings are favorable to the Grizzlies.  Most think that they are one of the top 10 teams.  It will be interesting how they start the season as we haven’t seen the full starting line up on the floor in the two pre-season games.  Hopefully, Marc will be ready to play and the starting 5 will play well.  The subs are yet to really show they can play well. Coach Hollins has a lot of work to do I think.

John Schuhmann at had nice words for Arthur.  Britt Robson at SI recognizes that Heisley had spent the money to get the Grizzlies to playoff level team.  Matt Moore at CBS relates the Grizzlies in the top 10 to the apocalypse. ; /  Check out all the preseason comments below.Average ranking was 9.00 (not including actual ranking or Hollinger since he has not updated for this season.
