All Time Grizzlies starting lineup
Pg: Mike Conley
Sg: Tony Allen
Sf: Rudy Gay
Pf: Zach Randolph
C: Marc Gasol
Conley is a underrated all around point guard. He plays with high intensity on both sides of the court causing offenses and defenses to struggle to keep up with him. He can do it all as a guard and perfect fit for this team
DEFENSE DEFENSE DEFENSE. That's what Allen was in Memphis. He can lockdown any guard, but isnt much of a scorer besides his layup ability
Gay was a great scorer in Memphis. Easily putting up 20 ppg and would be the main perimeter scorer for this team. Hes very underrated now from what he is and once was.
This was a very tough choice between Randolph and Pau Gasol. I picked Randolph for how long he stayed and how physical he played. Randolph is very underrated for how consistent he has been. He always does the small things, and every team needs a player like that.
Gasol has taken a dip in his play recently, but hes still a great player, and a better grizzly. Gasol was a great post scorer who could even shoot at times, with amazing defense to match it. Hes another player that does the things that stats dont show. He may not get every block, but his post defense is still amazing. He may not score 30, but when you need a bucket, give it to gasol in the post. He was great in his prime
This team would rely on its physical play and force low scoring games to get their wins. 4 of the 5 starters can play defense at a high level while Rudy gay is a great scorer. The team itself could definitely do much more than it looks on paper
