As I sat in the FedEx Forum last night I realized that it had been a dissapointing year for the two teams I follow closely. Thank God it is just about over.
The Grizzlies closed out the home schedule of what quite possibly could have been on of the worst seasons in NBA history. With one regular season game remaining, the Grizzlies are 21-60, already locked in as the worst record in the NBA. As of today, they are 46 games behind Dallas in there division. 46, they haven't won half that this year. They have yet to permanently replace Fratello, and now Jerry West says he is skipping town.
Tough year for the fan Carl Montgomery has come to an end, and next year is already looking up. Memphis has the best odds for the #1 draft pick and is guaranteed nothing less than the #4 pick. Hopefully a new coach who can promote the young talent already here and most importantly replacing West with a GM who can run a team somewhere close to how Jerry runs one.
