Sports Unbiased Staff G.F.R. Analysis
Keith Rivas – If nobody else, the Memphis Grizzlies will be the team that gives the stocked San Antonio Spurs a run for their money. Not usually thought to be much of a title contender, Mike Conley, Jr. has changed all of that in nearly a decade as part of the Grizzlies’ organization.
The last two seasons for Conley have been his career-best in terms of points per game. Once he can get a grip on his assists, the Memphis Grizzlies will be ready to take their talents into anyone’s building and emerge victorious — period.
Steve Turner – Mike Conley is such a fantastic player. This guy has so much heart and passion for that game. He’s such a talented offensive player and can really contribute defensively. Conley plays to the best of his abilities every single game, and I don’t know how people can dislike him. As a PG, he brings a lot to the table and the Memphis Grizzlies love having him there.
Sauping R. Arguello – I have Conley at nine on my list but he can easily be as high as sixth in this ranking. He is the perfect fit to run the Grizzlies offense. Often overlooked, Conley is an unselfish, tough, gritty player who hits big shots when they’re needed.
