Allen Iverson has signed with the Memphis Grizzlies and now the Grizzlies have gotten better at offense.
They might be the best offensive team right now in the NBA.
The Grizzlies one of the best Big 4 in the NBA.
The West is very tight and are loaded with talented teams.
The Spurs, Lakers, Hornets, Mavericks, Blazers, Nuggets, and Jazz are all better teams than the Grizzlies but the Grizzlies still have a great chance.
Injurys happen every season. It well happen at the Western Conference and the Eastern Conference.
Lets say if Lamar Odom gets injured. If he does the Lakers wont have as much of a chance to make to the finals. Lets say if Tim Duncan gets injured. They wont have much of a chance. Every season a good or great player will get injured which will give other teams a chance, other teams like the Memphis Grizzlies.
Lets say Rudy Gay gets injured. That will be better for the Grizzlies because then the Grizzlies can share the ball more.
All the teams in the West that is better than the Grizzlies is 1 injury away of becoming a weaker team.
Last season the Spurs, Hornets, Rockets, and Jazz had injury problems.
That is 4 teams.
The more injurys, the better chance for the Grizzlies. Besides, if this coming season 4 teams have injury problems again then the Suns, Rockets, or even the Warriors will have a better chance.
It was a smart move for the Memphis Grizzlies to pick up Allen Iverson. Its not like their will be no injurys. There will be injurys and the Grizzlies can sneak to the 6th spot at the West.
The Grizzlies are very good at offense so if one of their big 4 gets injured, that might only be better for them.
The Spurs, Grizzlies, and Lakers are probaly the only teams that have a can backup a injured star.
It is all about injurys and it will happen. The more injurys then the more stronger the Memphis Grizzlies will be.
The Blazers and Hornets are not going to want a injury to one of their players because they dont have a strong backup.
The Mavericks and Jazz have better backup then the Hornets and Blazers, but if a star of theirs get injured they might not even make it to the second round.
The Spurs and Lakers are loaded with great players and the strongest team in the Western Conference.
The Grizzlies are also loaded with good players but dont have a strong chance like the Spurs and Lakers but if alot of injurys happen they will have a trong chance to make it to the Second Round.
Now I will predict how many points I think the stars will average.
O.J. Mayo: 22.1
Rudy Gay: 20.9
Zach Randolph: 21.0
Allen Iverson: 25.8
For the Grizzlies it going to be about injurys this coming season and if one of their star gets injured that can better for them.
This is a place Allen Iverson can prove people wrong by leading this team.
The Grizzlies have never won a playoff game.
Allen Iverson can lead the Grizzlies to their first playoff game victory, that will be huge news.
Allen Iverson can make this team a winning team.
