There goes my hopes of having Gay play in Boston.
Rudy Gay is one baller. He is a very dynamic wing that slashes his way to the rim frequently. He would have been a good fit in Boston, but he remains a Grizzly.
Apparently, it is reported that Gay loves it in Memphis. I'm not sure why. Memphis finished a very poor season with a 40-42 record in the Southwest division of the Western Conference.
My opinion is that Rudy Gay could be a franchise player. He has the talent and the athleticism to beat just about anyone. It's a shame he's staying in Memphis. Maybe the Grizzlies can build a strong cast for the 23 year old, I don't know.
The Grizzlies have potential, don't get me wrong. They have young, talented players who are on the up-rise like Mike Conley and OJ Mayo, but it's just a matter of maturing.
Kind of a disappointing day for me, as I was wishing the Celtics could pursue the 6-8 forward. But, I'll have to deal with watching him play in Memphis for another five years.
I can see Rudy Gay being a very successful player, but we'll see if he can accomplish it in Memphis.
