Christmas week — whose interested in basketball with all the presents, songs, fun with children and all the activities? Yet the game goes on as do the rankings.

Jimmy Spencer @FoxSports and Matt Dollinger @SI gave out Christmas presents in their comments. CBS-Sports has this intro comment for their rankings, "So what kind of Christmas surprises do we have? We can look at the coal in the stockings that the Nets and Knicks have given themselves, or how Memphis is too injured to unwrap its own presents."

The Grizzlies Strength-of-Schedule is not one of the top 5, but still in the top 10 (Sagarin-5, Hollinger-8, RPI-8).

Average ranking for the week is 20.27, down from last week of 19.0 (Actual not included in average.)

    What Grizz Fans have witnessed over the past year of this new ownership & mgmt has been tough to watch. They were so ready to put their stamp on the team that they began destroying it along the way. Us fans had to go thru tough years to get to the place we were as a top NBA team and have watched as it all has slowly been torn down since this new regime took over. They came in acting like they bought a team that wasn’t a good team and made changes to things that were working. We were a strong minded team and got that from our leader, our coach in Lionel Hollins. He knew what buttons to push to get the very best out of each player on our roster. These owners wanted to have all the control because it was their new toy and they had to play with that toy so they made changes that weren’t needed. Heck, we were already an elite team vying for a title. By having that urge to control all aspects they fired a great coach and hired a coach they could control. Whether they admit it or not it’s true. Now they see what they’ve done and now I’m affraid they are panicking to early and will continue making these drastic steps until were not even close to that same WCF team a year ago. Hey, it’s hard to take as a huge Grizz Fan..Hopefully Marc can come back soon we will start winning despite our lack-luster front office…Go Grizz!!!
