Grizzlies Media Day Brings NBA Basketball Back for 7th Season in Memphis

There's change from Top to Bottom in the Memphis Grizzlies organization as the Mid-South's NBA Franchise prepares for Year number-7 in the Bluff City.

The Mood around Media Day is Change is Good.

It's a whole new year and it didn't take long to see the first big difference.

Pau Gasol arrived on two feet, healthy and well.

Unlike the wheel chair escort last season.

there's no doubt Pau is the man on this Grizzlies team. But this year they've added some parts for him to work with. Starting with 7 foot center Darko Milicic.

Darko says"

"it's helps to have other European players together on the same team. Playing with Pau will be great."

Two 7 footers is an exciting proposition.

Especially with two speedsters in the back court....draft pick Mike Conley Jr. and 2nd year man Kyle Lowery.

Grizz Head Coach Marc Iavaroni says:

"Right there you have it. We have versatility. We can play fast with the big guys or high-low with the big guys."

The first practice begins Saturday morning before playing two exhibition in Spain the 2nd week of October.

  The First NBA pre-Season game is October 15th at FedExForum against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

  The First Regular season game is also at home Halloween night against the World Champion San Antonio Spurs.
