At the Memphis Grizzlies’ media day Monday, the players and coach were excited about their new-look team, but the uncertainty of the future loomed.
“The unknown is what’s exciting about this team,” Mike Conley said.
The players also talked about new beginnings. Chandler Parsons expressed this as he said he was finally able to participate in a training camp for the first time in a few years now that he was healthy physically.
Besides Marc Gasol and Mike Conley leading this team, much of this season’s success for Memphis depends on the newer guys and younger guys stepping up to the plate.
“I’m going to roll the ball out and see which bulldog wants it,” Coach David Fizdale said regarding the competition between Tyreke Evans and Wade Baldwin.
But with the departure of cornerstone players Zach Randolph and Tony Allen, the Grizzlies have to turn to a new chapter and embrace this new beginning.
October 18th is nearing, and now the Grizzlies have to yet again prove the national analysts wrong, or it could be a long season in the Bluff City.
