The Memphis Grizzlies are leading the charge for the next generation of talent. The Grizzlies had an incredible 2022-23 season that earned them the second seed in the Western Conference. However, their playoff run has been less than incredible. The Grizzlies are currently down 2-0 to the Los Angeles Lakers in the opening. Unfortunately for the Grizzlies, the team has even had to deal with more bad news during the series. Memphis star Ja Morant suffered a hand injury that has his availability unknown for Wednesday’s Game 3.
The Grizzlies are battling through tough times at the moment. But that isn’t the only thing the team is making headlines for. The Athletic recently spoke to a few NBA players to discuss their thoughts on the league. Of course, the players are anonymous. So no one will be able to claim the comments being made. However, that didn’t stop one anonymous player from going all in on the Grizzlies. “They’re front runners. They’re just extra. They talk when they’re winning. They don’t say s— when they’re losing. Their whole thing over there is just annoying.”

The Grizzlies have been making a lot of waves with their actions on the court. Grizzlies forward Dillon Brooks has become one of the more outspoken players in the league. Before the playoffs, Brooks said he would gladly welcome a playoff series with the Lakers. Because he wanted to be a part of the team to eliminate LeBron James from the playoffs. However, that doesn’t seem like the case right now. The Lakers have a huge chance to put another nail in the Grizzlies coffin on Wednesday night.
It seems that talking trash without major team accomplishments doesn’t sit well with other players. Maybe the comments came from an older player that would like to see the younger generation show respect. However, any time a new generation begins its journey, it isn’t welcomed by those that came before. Do you think the Memphis Grizzlies do too much talking on the court? Or do you think the Grizzlies are bringing in a new era to the game? Let us know your thoughts on the Grizzlies in the comment section. For the latest NBA news, keep it right here with HNHH.
