The Core 4: Best First-Round Playoff Matchups
The Core 4 is back to break down who they want to see in the first round of the playoffs, Dillon Brooks play (and mouth) as of late, give their picks for the NBA awards, and share their list of guys they're keeping an eye on during March Madness that could fit with the Grizzlies. The Playoffs are approaching and in a stacked Western Conference the Grizzlies' first-round matchup is up in the air. Few games separate every team and Memphis is still battling for the two seed. Dave and Matt agree, another matchup with the Timberwolves would be great to see. It was a battle of two young budding superstars dueling it out in the first round last year and this year the Wolves have added Mike Conley who is beloved in Memphis. Xavier isn't ducking any smoke and wants some Golden State revenge in an early matchup. Dillon Brooks has been making headlines by calling out various NBA stars and backing it up with solid defensive performances. But is all his talk a harmful distraction for Memphis? Going head-to-head with Draymond Green could only motivate Golden State more if they were to match up in the playoffs. One thing is for sure, Brooks has regressed back into poor offensive habits. The C4 give their picks for this year's NBA awards. Matt and Xavier are aligned that Jokic has done enough to win a third straight MVP but Dave thinks Joel Embiid deserves more respect. Everybody agrees Jaren is DPOY but Brook Lopez has made a great case for himself over the last few weeks. Xavier has a surprise selection for his rookie of the year. To close out the show, the guys give their list of college players they'll be paying close attention to during March Madness. Xavier wants one player to not even have to leave Memphis. Dave likes one of the top recruits and Matt is looking for more shooting.

The Core 4: Life Without Ja feat. Geoff Calkins
After a week off the Core Four is back with their first episode as a part of Grind City Media. The C4 Boys open the show by reacting to the latest Ja Morant controversy that will keep him away from the team for an undetermined amount of time. In his absence, the guys break down the offense without Morant. The ball movement has to be at a premium and guys like Tyus Jones and Desmond Bane have to step up as playmakers. We saw glimpses of the ceiling of the Memphis offense in the third quarter against the Clippers Sunday night but can that be sustained? At the Trophy Case, Dave returns to an old faithful to commend the Grizzlies organization's ability to navigate these choppy waters. Xavier explains why Tyus is a starter in this league and Matt compares Xavier Tillman and John Travolta's career resurgences. In the latest NBA Title Contenders Ranked by the College Football Playoff Committee rankings, the four teams are unanimous. Milwaukee has taken over the top spot but has Phoenix proven enough in a short time with their new lineup? The Knicks may look to play spoiler come playoff time. To close out the show Matt takes Geoff Calkins one on one. They discuss the timetable for Ja Morant's return, the front-court rotation, and even throw in a little Tiger talk.

The Core 4: All-Star Recap
The Core Four this week touches on Ja and Jaren's All-Star appearances, how to fix the All-Star Game, and look at what the Grizzlies have to do in the second half of the season to compete for a title. In Embrace Debate, the guys try to fix the All-Star game. Matt gives new incentive possibilities but, Dave and Xavier don't think players should need to be incentivized. Everybody agrees the All-Star game was disappointing and has lost its appeal. How much longer will the league let it go on? The guys then shift their focus to the second half of the Grizzlies season. Dave is doubtful the Grizzlies can hang on to the two seed if they don't find some stability. Matt gives the Grizzlies a slogan to live by in the second half. Xavier looks at the rest of the tough Western Conference. In this week's trophy case, the C4 boys give out awards for All-Star weekend. Matt gives out the corniest trophy, Dave believes Jokic's MVPs won't age well and Xavier gives the slam dunk champion his props. To close out the show the guys do an extended Top Four NBA Title Contenders Ranked by the College Football Playoff Committee to see where everyone has the Grizzlies currently. Last week's rankings were the first time in four rankings that Memphis was not mentioned on the show. Are people now too cold on the Grizzlies?

The Core 4: Did the Grizzlies do Enough at the ...
It's the Core Four's first episode post-trade deadline and just like the Grizzlies, the C4 Boys bring in a new guy to add a spark. To open the show, he asks Dave his takeaway from the Boston game Sunday and Dave believes the Grizzlies can't win the big ones. Xavier gives his prediction and what to expect against Utah. In Embrace Debate, Matt asks the guys: Did the Grizzlies do enough at the trade deadline? The only trade they made added some much-needed shooting and what they gave up didn't impact team chemistry. Luke Kennard may not have gotten Dave as excited as some other targets but he is a good addition. For the Top 4 NBA Title Contenders Ranked by the College Football Playoff Committee, the guys have the same top three; Boston, Milwaukee, and Denver have separated themselves from the rest. The debate comes at the four spot - plenty of teams made moves to go for a title right now, is it enough to land any of them at number four? At the trophy case, the guys give out some hardware. Ja Morant receives two honors and Kyrie has become a movie villain. Matt sings the praises of some of the great reunions the trade deadline brought. In the Interview, former Grizzly Bear Blues editor Joe Mullinax goes one-on-one with Dave. Joe shares his experiences at GBB and as a Grizzlies fan and they hit every part of the Grizzlies season through the All-Star Break.

The Core 4: Taylor Jenkins' Hot Seat
The Core Four Boys got together this week to talk about the losing streak, the Grizzlies' late-game struggles and give their hot takes on the NBA. In X's and O's, Xavier explains why Memphis has struggled to execute at the end of close games. Matt believes the blame should go to coach Taylor Jenkins and if he can not improve Memphis may be looking for a new coach in the offseason. Dave praises Golden State's off-ball movement in their offense and wants the same for the Grizzlies. For Kleiman Corner, the guys patiently wait for Memphis to make a trade to steady the ship. Trades for OG Anunoby, DeMar DeRozen, and Kevin Durant are discussed to see who fits best with the Grizzlies' current roster and the price for each. Looking across the division, Matt explains why the Kyrie trade could make the South West division even more difficult for Memphis for years to come. The guys then Embrace Debate, breaking down the NBA All-Star snubs and break down why Jaren Jackson Jr. was a worthy addition this year. Xavier misses the old jerseys and Dave wants the old East versus West format to return. To close the show, the C4 Boys give their hottest NBA takes. Xavier loves the new generation of bucket-getters. Matt thinks the West is becoming less wild and Dave thinks immaturity is holding Memphis back.
