    Get back to us after this series is over?

    I think GS has shown they have some holes and I think Doc will exploit that in the next series if Memphis doesn't do it this series. They need more of a low post game and presence.

    This is why I don't get why they didn't play Lee at all this season. I know he can't play d but he is one of the better offensive pfs out there and he doesn't need anyone to create shots for him. He should have been coming in with Livingston all year to carry the scoring load when curry sits. As much as I like green, you can't just give him the ball and expect much, he is very dependent on curry playing well.

    Memphis doesn't actually have that great of a perimeter defense in my opinion. They do however have an amazing interior defense, and I think that is largely because of Gasol.

    I can get behind Gasol's play to pull for Memphis to come out of the west for sure. It would also be cool to see him get a ring along side Pau. Imagine a Bulls/Grizzlies finals, might be one of the better stories that could play out.

    I also wouldn't mind seeing Carter be able to get a ring, he's been chasing one for a while.

    Yeah, well after reading some insane comments on here about the player. I thought I'd throw out that nugget.

    I'm still rooting for the Grizz to win it all. Then celebrate by moving back to Vancouver

    Its all media hype. The media loves these giant Free Agent stories and LA just makes the stories easier with some of his quotes. If we had destroyed memphis you can bet the story will be all about Gasol leaving and when they finally do get knocked out stories about him leaving will pop up just not as much as with LA.

    I wasn't talking about his opinion. Just his writing style which wasn't very clear.
