The Memphis Grizzlies, courtesy of a few key players, still have one of the NBA's more talented teams. This coming even during a time where the biggest market teams are starting a trend of putting together their own versions of a "big three."
The Grizzlies find their success in stellar defensive play, as they were the NBA's fifth-ranked team in 2011 in points against. In an unbelievably tough Western Conference, that kind of ability is extremely valued.
As a result, the Grizzlies' biggest impact players are not necessarily just their top scorers but rather who their defensive efforts are built around.
