Which Grizzlies fan is not disappointed with at 3-6 start to the season?  Those who rank the NBA are also disappointed.  Stein at ESPN says the Grizzlies should be humbled.  Sam Amico at Fox has this probing opinion “It’s very early, but something seems not quite right here after last year‘s playoff fun. And it goes beyond just Zach Randolph being hurt.”

Memphis could/should win 5 or 6 of their next 7 games: NY Knicks (H, W-L?), New Orleans (H, Win), Chicago (H, Lose), New Orleans (A, Win), Detroit (A, Win), Sacramento (H, Win), Golden State (A, Win).  Win these games and they would be at  500.

Average ranking for the week is 18.78 (not including actual), up slightly from last week’s 20.88.

    It’s not how we start, but how we finish. We will be in the the most important position at the end of the season – Top 8 in the West.

    I agree with Fox sports. I think the problem is that they are missing their glue guy and coach on the court. Not resigning Battier, though understandable, is a bigger loss than anyone cares to admit.
