September 14, 2018 - How Good Could JJJ Be?
Let's talk about one of my favorite subjects - Jaren Jackson, Jr. How good can this guy be? What will his role be in his rookie year? Why are people like me so high on him?
September 10, 2018 - Back for a New Season!
Time to welcome in a new season - let's talk about some of the reasons why the Grizzlies did what they did this offseason, and why things are starting to make some sense.
July 8, 2018 - Kyle Anderson is a Grizzly (FINA...
The day I've waited for is finally here - Kyle Anderson is a Grizzly! I wanted them to draft him in 2014, and it's taken long enough for him to arrive. But here he is!
July 3, 2018 - JAREN JACKSON JR HOLY HELL WHAT ...
Jaren Jackson, Jr. is incredible. The Grizzlies front office less so. I get into a very good and very bad day for the Grizzlies...
July 2, 2018 - Omri Casspi Arrives, Summer Leag...

June 18, 2018 - The State of Play 72 Hours From...

May 16, 2018 - FOURTH??!?!?!?!?
Welp. The Grizzlies fell in the lottery. You knew they would. And they did. So, what now? You want to hear baffling comments from Chris Wallace? Sure! Let's do a quick player preview, too!
May 14, 2018 - Lotto Preview...and a Horror Story
We'll take a look at the basics of the draft lottery itself, and take a look at previous performance by the Grizzlies, which, like your stock portfolio, is not an indicator of future return.
May 7, 2018 - A Good Hire and an Interesting Story
Let's talk about a very good move from the Grizzlies' front office and a rumor that's awfully interesting to talk about...
May 3, 2018 - JB Bickerstaff's Introductory Pre...
Hear from the new, yet returning, head coach of the Grizzlies J.B. BIckerstaff and GM Chris Wallace as they talk present and future.
April 30, 2018 - A Lack of Ambition
In this episode, I outline my disagreement with the Grizzlies' approach to hiring J.B. Bickerstaff and question whether or not the organization has any kind of plan.
April 16, 2018 - Should J.B. Bickerstaff Really...
It has been taken as a foregone conclusion in many circles that J.B. Bickerstaff will get the Grizzlies head coaching job on a permanent basis. But why? Should he?
April 10, 2018 - Pera Retains Ownership; Grizzl...
Two loose ends tied up over the last 24 hours - we know the results of the tank, we know who's going to own the team, those two big questions are finally answered.
April 6, 2018 - Talking With Marc Gasol; Also, ...
As we approach the end of this seemingly interminable season, we've got a lot to talk about:
April 2, 2018 - Now THAT'S Tanking! Also, Let's...
The Grizzlies got rather more aggressive in their approach to the tank this weekend. And it worked. Five regular season games left. Let's also start the discussion about the head coach situation, too.
March 29, 2018 - WYD Grizzlies???
Welp, that's what they call a winning streak. At the most inconvenient of times. From the most unusual of places. But here we are.
March 26, 2018 - A Historic Loss and a Mundane ...
What can you say about a 61-point loss? Not much, thankfully. But what about an 8-point one to the Lakers? Maybe we can say a bit more about that? This season is - mercifully - coming to an end soon. Draft talk's not far away!
March 22, 2018 - Other Than Losing, Is Anything...
Another loss - this one to the Sixers, who are much, much better than this Grizzlies team - and another chance to look at what's actually happening. Are players being developed? Is there any silver lining (other than the draft pick)?
March 19, 2018 - One Straight Win
I've kind of forgotten what to do when the Grizzlies win a game. These have been rare shows indeed. Let's talk about it - and let's not make this a habit, eh?
March 16, 2018 - Nineteen Straight Losses!
On a night when Tyreke Evans returned and the Grizzlies played a team that didn't really care about winning, the Grizzlies still managed to lose. Remarkable.
March 8, 2018 - The Grizzlies Are Better at Tan...
I know we all thought the Grizzlies would slip up and win a few games they weren't expected to, but they haven't yet. 15 straight losses. That's a lot. Let's talk about it.
March 5, 2018 - A Terribly Great Weekend
Two more losses, one of them to a fellow struggler in Orlando, has now cemented the Grizzlies in last (aka first) place in the NBA! 13 straight losses...that, uh, that is a lot. Let's talk about it.
March 1, 2018 - Think of it Like Having Necessa...
Even by tanking standards, that was a staggeringly bad loss by the Grizzlies last night. Let's talk about it and the implictions of it. Know this - it was better to lose.
February 27, 2018 - MORE LOSING!
We all expected to see it. And we did. The Grizzlies lost again - this time in Boston. What can we take from this and why will it get much harder to lose from here?
February 26, 2018 - Reality's Setting In
It's one thing to talk about tanking in the abstract, but actually seeing it - well, that's pretty grim. And here it is. What can we take from a rough weekend?
February 22, 2018 - Back From the Break
I'm back from the All-Star Break with a Locked on Grizzlies that touches on a lot of subjects - tank race, ownership, draft stuff, league stuff, and more.
February 13, 2018 - Explaining the Deadline - a...
Now that the deadline has come and gone, I offer an explanation and try to figure out what happens now.
February 9, 2018 - John Hollinger
On a special bonus edition of the podcast, John Hollinger sits down with me in a very wide-ranging interview about why the Grizzlies kept Tyreke, how the process happened, and what happens now.
February 8, 2018 - EMERGENCY NOT TRADING TYREKE...
I'm stunned. I'm shocked. I'm not speechless - or this would be a terrible pod - but I'm amazed. What didn't happen? Why not? What now?
February 7, 2018 - Talking Trade Deadline (Beca...
More trade talk as we're just about 24 hours from the deadline, what's the latest - plus, what are the Grizzlies valued at? And what the hell was that last night?
February 6, 2018 - Trades? Not Yet. But Soon......
Well, as of this morning no one is traded. Yet. Around the league, it's been quiet, too. I suspect that will change, but when? And how will the Grizzlies handle it?
February 5, 2018 - Why Hasn't Tyreke Been Trade...
You would think that a Tyreke deal would be done by now, but it hasn't been. Why not? What could the hold up be?
January 25, 2018 - Grizzlies Lose Badly (aka NO...
Now THAT'S how you do it. With the Grizzlies really needing to slow down this freight train of home wins, the Spurs did the trick with a ruthlessly Spursish effort.
January 24, 2018 - Spurs Tonight; Two Weeks Unt...
With the rest of the NBA going through something of a midseason crisis, things are comparatively rosy in Memphis. But what now? What happens tonight and over the next two weeks?
January 23, 2018 - THE MYKE HENRY GAME
The newest superstar in the NBA, as we all predicted, is MYKE HENRY, who destroyed the Sixers and opened doors to new worlds of magic for Grizzlies fans worldwide!!
January 22, 2018 - ZBo Returns, Grizzlies Split...
It was an emotional night at FedExForum for ZBo's return on Friday. I describe it and more. Hear from Dillon Brooks and Marc Gasol exclusively. Also, what's the deal with all these injuries?
January 17, 2018 - Ron Tillery on the Grizzlies...
The beat writer covering the Grizzlies for the Commercial Appeal in Memphis, Ron Tillery has been around the team since Day One. Now, times are tough. We talk about trades, about young players, about the state of things right now. Listen in.
January 16, 2018 - MLK Day Win For the Grizzlies
On the most important day of the year for the Grizzlies, the team gets a win - not really a needed win, but a nice one given the circumstances.
January 11, 2018 - Grizzlies Win...Yay???
You know, a win is a rare treat this season, but it's one that may not be in the best interests of the team long-term. Let's talk about it.
January 10, 2018 - MLK50 Update, JB on DD, Marc...
Much to discuss - I talk with Marc Gasol about his 4th quarter struggles and his offensive preferences, JB Bickerstaff on Deyonta Davis, Pelicans preview, Soorts Legacy Award recipients revealed, and more!
January 9, 2018 - One Month Away From the Deadline
One month away from the trade deadline, I talk about what options the Grizzlies have and what'could possibly happen.
January 8, 2018 - Mike Conley Update, Another L...
The Grizzlies are now 12-27. They lost again. I talk a little about that - I talk about Marc Gasol's 4th quarter problems, and we hear from Mike Conley on his injury situation.
January 4, 2018 - What Would it Mean to Tank, A...
Everyone throws around the work "tank", but for the Grizzlies, what would it actually mean?
January 3, 2018 - New Year, Same Grizzlies
The Grizzlies began 2018 as they ran through most of 2017, losing. This time, it was to the Clippers 113-105.
December 22, 2017 - The Most Tankerful Time of ...
This episode is really designed to get you ready for - and perhaps accepting of - a lot of losing. This was an insanely horrible finish. Suns win - which is good for the Grizzlies btw.
December 20, 2017 - GASOL SUMMIT PART 2
As promised, today's Locked on Grizzlies features part 2 of the Gasol Summit. I think you'll enjoy hearing the details.
December 19, 2017 - THE MARC GASOL SUMMIT
Marc Gasol wanted to open the floor to all questions. He invited several of us to talk. So we did. Nothing was off limits. And you can hear what happened.
December 18, 2017 - Accepting the Inevitable
After two more losses, it's time to accept the inevitable. Lots of losses, not a lot of winning. Embrace it, don't run from it.
December 13, 2017- MEGA MAILBAG! Your Q's, My A's!
Just because the Grizzlies are in a tailspin, that's no reason we can't open up the ol' mailbag and answer tons of your very good questions.
December 12, 2017 - It's Getting Really Ugly
Once again, the Grizzlies fade in the 2nd half, this time completely giving up in the 4th quarter en route to a 107-85 loss to the Heat. That's 15 losses out of 16 games. That's awful.
December 11, 2017 - It's Time
After a brutal weekend, and an insanely horrendous loss to the Thunder in particular, it's time to be real about where things are and where they're going.
December 8, 2017 - Make or Break Weekend Approa...
It was pretty ugly in NYC - and now the Grizzlies are right back on the losing train. A weekend with two home games vs Toronto and Oklahoma City will go a long way in determining what this team will do next.
December 6th, 2017 - Winning Streak? Plus, Good...
Can the Grizzlies parlay their 1st win in almost a month into an actual winning streak tonight? Injury news both good and bad, and - what have we learned from JB so far?
December 5, 2017 - IT'S A WIN!!!!!
They did it! The Grizzlies did it! They won! It was a tough, hard, long losing streak - but it's over.
December 4, 2017 - This Streak Goes to Eleven
I'm not really feeling much talk of moral victories. Let's be real. It's ugly. What happened with Tyreke on Friday? When will the streak end? Tonight?
November 30, 2017 - Nine Straight Losses; J.B.'...
The Grizzlies lost. Again. Nine straight. That's not good. Hear from Marc Gasol postgame and let's talk about the positives and negatives of J.B. Bickerstaff's first game.
November 29, 2017 - FIZDALE FIRING FALLOUT - MA...
Marc Gasol answers THE question (and several others), Chris Wallace says things, I talk extensively with Ron Tillery, JB Bickerstaff talks changes. So much you will want to hear.
November 28, 2017 - Fizdale Got Rooked One Last...
David Fizdale was fired on Monday. I told you Sunday was a bad night. Let's talk about it. Why did this happen? What now? Is Marc a coach killer? Why isn't Chris Wallace feeling more heat?
November 27, 2017 - A Very, Very Bad Night
You lose to Brooklyn. Eight straight losses. Five straight home losses. An injury to Chandler Parsons. And your best player benched for somewhat inexplicable reasons. Yeah, that's a bad night.
November 22, 2017 - Talkin' Turkey With Kevin L...
As Thanksgiving approaches, with the Grizzlies at 7-9, it's time to talk turkey with our pal Kevin Lipe, longtime Grizzlies reporter (among many other things) for the Memphis Flyer.

Bad defense, bad offense, bad night - we talk about the Houston debacle, hear from an upset Marc Gasol, and more!
November 16, 2017 - You Can't Defend For Only N...

November 15, 2017 - JaMychal's Back; Dissecting...
JaMychal Green returns, and not a moment too soon, as the Grizzlies play the Pacers tonight. That, plus a look at the Harrison Effect...
November 14, 2017 - Tyreke's Shoulders Are Only...
In spite of another breathtaking performance from Tyreke Evans, the Grizzlies give him no help and lose in Milwaukee.
November 13, 2017 - Good News, Bad News
The Grizzlies get key players back, which is good, but lose comfortably in Houston, which is bad.
November 9, 2017 - Is It Sustainable?
On the 200th Episode of Locked on Grizzlies, I look at the performances of the Grizzlies as a whole, and of individual players to try to answer the question - Is It Sustainable?
November 8, 2017 - Grizzlies Beat Portland and ...

Back to discuss the first three games of Summer League , with a few thoughts on some notable players, and a discussion of Tyreke Evans' 3.3 million dollar signing, what it means, what he could do, and a bit more, too.
Locked on Grizzlies - July 6, 2017 - Talking wi...
I talk extensively with the Flyer's Grizzlies Correspondent Kevin Lipe - a longtime LOG favorite - about what's next for the Grizzlies now that ZBo's gone and TA appears to be next. What about JaMychal Green? Marc Gasol? Many, many topics are discussed...
Locked on Grizzlies - July 5, 2017 - Goodbye, Z...
Zach Randolph won't be a Grizzly next year. That's strange but it is also true. The one and only ZBo is going to be a King. We talk about this very special day - for the wrong reasons - and what happens now. We also talk about JaMychal Green and where ...
Locked on Grizzlies - July 3, 2017 - McLemore! ...
The Grizzlies have now signed two shooting guards in free agency, neither of whom is Tony Allen. We'll talk about the Ben McLemore signing, what it means, where he fits, etc. We'll also touch on the Wayne Selden re-signing and the contract of Kobi Simm...

The Grizzlies - and be sure you're sitting down when you read this - traded their way into the second round twice last night to take Ivan Rabb and Dillon Brooks. Hear from GM Chris Wallace and Rabb as well on this special Draft Night edition of Locked ...
Locked on Grizzlies - June 21, 2017 - The NBA I...
All is quiet on Beale Street, while elsewhere in the NBA, things are insane. I talk a bit about an insane period in the NBA and lay the groundwork for the Grizzlies' draft, while making a guarantee and going off on Phil Jackson a bit, too.
Locked on Grizzlies - June 16, 2017 - John Holl...
On my radio show on Sports 56 /87.7 FM this morning, I talked with Grizzlies VP of Basketball Operations John Hollinger about the upcoming draft (which the Grizzlies are still not, technically, involved in as yet), scouting, travel, free agency, summer...

In this episode, I take a look at some of the methods by which the Grizzlies might end up getting themselves into a draft which, at this point, they're not involved with in any way shape, or form. There are a few methods, some more likely than others. ...

Locked on Grizzlies - June 1, 2017 - Grizzlies ...
Back after a storm-fueled outage delay, Locked on Grizzlies brings you several bits of Grizzlies-related news, a hypothetical trade, and a look ahead to the NBA Finals, starting tonight. All of that! Pretty good? Pretty good.
Locked on Grizzlies - May 25, 2017 - Grizzlies ...
I'm sorry. This is an episode that had to be done. We'll get through it, you and I. We talk here about the Grizzlies'...(gulp)...backup point guard situation. Evaluations of Wade Baldwin, Andrew Harrison, and Toney Douglas contained within.
Locked on Grizzlies - May 23, 2017 - Vince Cart...
Talking about the 40 Year Old Vince Carter today on Locked on Grizlies - his season and his future - and I share a gripe I had with Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals (my fellow soccer fans will especially appreciate it).

I take a look at Tony Allen's season - and his FA situation - in this episode of Locked on Grizzlies. Some surprising numbers contained within, and an evaluation of the Grizzlies' future with or without Tony, too. Also, a quick look at the All-NBA team...

We're back! Thanks for your patience.

You guys asked a lot of interesting questions, and I'm going to answer them, starting with this pod. Part 2 will be coming your way tomorrow.
Locked on Grizzlies - May 2, 2017 - A Half-Hour...
At the end-of-season media session, Vince Carter sat down and had a lot to say about his career, about his goals, about his motivation, his teammates, why he plays when others don't or can't, and so much more. If you love basketball, you'll love hearin...

Locked on Grizzlies - April 28, 2017 - The End ...
That's it. Grizzlies lose Game 6 in spite of an inspiring effort from Mike Conley, James Ennis, and others. I give you a brief recap and a few thoughts recorded at 2 am hindered by a distinct lack of sleep. Hope it makes sense.
Locked on Grizzlies - April 27, 2017 - Backs Ag...
It's Game 6. Do or die. Backs against the wall. Win or go home. Actually, win or stay home, in this case. I talk about the oft-ignored legacy of weird playoff losses for this core group, about the incredibly crucial role Mike Conley has played, about h...
Locked on Grizzlies - April 26, 2017 - Spurs Wi...
It went the way so many, including the oddsmakers, expected. Grizzlies lose by 13 behind another scintillating Mike Conley performance but not enough else. Backs very much against the wall now...

Game 5 looms incredibly large. In this episode, I talk adjustments. I talk about what you might see from both sides - and you'll hear from Mike Conley and David Fizdale on what those adjustments might mean. It's a fascinating series and it's really poi...
Locked on Grizzlies - April 24, 2017 - Mike Con...
It really was magnificent. This series has been energized, turned on its head by the best game of the Playoffs and perhaps of the Forum's history. I talked about Conley's brilliance, the unsung heroes, and so, so much more.
Locked on Grizzlies - April 21, 2017 - A Specia...
It was one of the classic playoff nights in FedExForum. The Grizzlies get all Big 3 clicking and win against the Spurs 105-94. ZBo returned to the starting lineup in style, the Grizzlies played effective, physical basketball, and the series just got a...

As we're just hours away from the biggest game of the season, Game 3 vs the Spurs in FedExForum, I'll take you inside the Grizzlies preparation - you'll hear from David Fizdale, Zach Randolph, Mike Conley, and Marc Gasol.
Locked on Grizzlies - April 19, 2017 - More Fiz...
Talking more about the fallout from David Fizdale's legendary rant, and starting to switch gears towards Game 3, I talk about some of the interior issues plaguing the Grizzlies, too.
Locked on Grizzlies - April 18, 2017 - Take Tha...
Better, but still not good enough on the floor - the Grizzlies lose again (the 10th time in a row in the postseason btw) to the Spurs. But that rant from Fizdale! You'll hear it right at the beginning of the pod - and stick around for the end, when I g...
Locked on Grizzlies - April 17, 2017 - Just Lik...
Eerily similar to last year, the Grizzlies begin the playoffs by getting smoked in San Antonio. Except this year, the team's much more talented. Marc Gasol was great, everyone else was varying degrees of bad, and the game got ugly in a hurry in the (su...

PLAYOFF CROSSOVER TIME!
Jeff Garcia of Locked on Spurs and I record a playoff crossover edition - with apologies for the audio quality (it was the best we could give you). We talk series predictions, what to do with Kawhi and Conley, bench play, and m...
Locked on Grizzlies - April 14, 2017 - Tony All...
A devastating blow to the Grizzlies in the postseason - Tony Allen is out indefinitely with a calf strain. I talk about the injury, whether or not he should have been playing in the final game, and try to figure out what the Grizzlies can do from here.
Locked on Grizzlies - April 13, 2017 - Regular ...
After the regular season mercifully comes to an end with a thud, we talk a bit about the young players and a potential Tony Allen injury before turning the page to playoff talk, with some help from Grizzlies forward Brandan Wright.
Locked on Grizzlies - April 12, 2017 - MVP Mike...
I give tonight's regular season finale all the attention it deserves (very little) in lieu of talking about Mike Conley, the Locked on Grizzlies MVP. Hear Mike talking about his season, his aggressiveness, his mindset, and more.
Locked on Grizzlies - April 11, 2017 - Talking ...
On today's pod, I talk about re-signing Tony Allen, and discuss some of the recent coverage of Allen's contractual situation. I also delve a little into the Troy Williams situation and finish up with a really impressive number from Mike Conley.
Locked on Grizzlies - April 10, 2017 - Griz Sea...
If I were a better salesman, I'd try to play up the last couple of games, but the fact is they didn't really matter. The Grizzlies won one, which is all they needed to do. I talk about the weekend, though, and talk a bit about Mike Conley's season.
Locked on Grizzlies - April 6, 2017 - Griz/OKC ...
You get postgame discussion after the Grizzlies lose their third straight, this one to the Thunder 103-100. You get lots of award talk, from MVP to 6th Man of the Year. But you also get Fred attempting to deal with Delta customer service. Listen and y...
Locked on Grizzlies - April 5, 2017 - Grizzlies...
In a frenetic, wild game, the Grizzlies couldn't quite get it done down the stretch, losing in OT to the Spurs. Thunder and the incredible Russell Westbrook are next tonight, we discuss all of it.
Locked on Grizzlies - April 4, 2017 - Grizzlies...
It's the final - yes, the final - road game of the regular season. Will some of the injured players return? Will the Grizzlies start to look a bit more cohesive? We discuss...
Locked on Grizzlies - April 3, 2017 - Grizzlies...
Welp. That was ugly. Grizzlies, missing a huge chunk of their quality players, lost to the tanking Lakers 108-103. Seemed impossible to do. But they did it. Find out how!
Locked on Grizzlies - March 31, 2017 - Kevin Li...
The title says it all. Kevin Lipe becomes a member of the "Three-Timers Club(tm)" on Locked on Grizzlies as we discuss:

Postgame pod - hear from Mike Conley after a 36-point barrage helps the Grizzlies knock off the listless Pacers in FedExForum to snap a 4-game losing streak. I talk about the lineup and the performance in a fun offensive game.
Locked on Grizzlies - March 29, 2017 - JUMBO SH...
This is a big show. First 15 or so is a soliloquy on success and the Grizzlies and the perma-dying Grit n' Grind. Then I talk a bit about the Pacers game tonight against a team that appears to be in a bit of a mental spiral themselves. Hear from an an...

Losses at San Antonio and Golden State are pretty excusable. But at New Orleans and at Sacramento? THE KINGS? That's not great. I'll talk about it within.

Talking about the 2nd straight Grizzlies loss on the road, this time to the Spurs. We talk 4th quarters, Marc/Mike, and what the Grizzlies need to do to liven up a struggling offense.
Locked on Grizzlies - March 22, 2017 - Winning ...
41 and 17 from Boogie. Wow. That's all you need to see to know the Grizzlies must have lost. And indeed they did. But some revealing postgame comments from Marc Gasol indicate that the Grizzlies still have a long way to go...
Locked on Grizzlies - March 21, 2017 - Grizzlie...
Grizzlies, remarkably, still have home court advantage in Round 1 to play for, in spite of all their inconsistencies this season. I talk about tonight's road trip opener in New Orleans and talk with Vince Carter about his amazing turn from superstar to...
Locked on Grizzlies - March 20, 2017 - What a D...
Four, count 'em, four straight wins for the Grizzlies, the most recent one against a potent (and healthy) Spurs team. I look at the starting lineup and why it's one of the best lineups in the NBA right now; I've also got news on Wayne Selden and Chandl...
Locked on Grizzlies - March 17, 2017 - That's C...
Well, this is way more fun to watch, isn't it? Marc Gasol racks up a triple-double, the third of his career, the Grizzlies look far, far better than they did a week ago, and it's another big win for the Griz. We talk about the keys to the turnaround, M...
Locked on Grizzlies - March 16, 2017 - The Griz...
I'd say this is a surprise, but I'd be lying. Grizzlies appear to be right back to their old selves for the second straight game, this time beating the Bulls 98-91. I try to explain why the Grizzlies are defending the interior so much more effectively,...
Locked on Grizzlies - March 15, 2017 - Chandler...
We get into a little Casspi talk and a little Bulls talk, but the meat of this baby is all about the Chandler Parsons situation, with sound from the past, an analysis of the present, and a look at the future - and I'll need your thoughts, too.
Locked on Grizzlies - March 14, 2017 - Parsons ...
Very much a bittersweet day, Monday. Sweet in that the Grizzlies finally - FINALLY - win a game after losing 5 straight. Bitter in that the Chandler Parsons season from hell got its official end with the announcement from the Grizzlies that he's injure...
Locked on Grizzlies - March 13, 2017 - Let's Ta...
Terrible loss on Saturday to Atlanta. Terrible homestand so far. Grizzlies look to be a completely different team than the one that played just a few weeks ago. What's happening and why? I try to give you some answers, as best I can, in today's pod, pr...
Locked on Grizzlies - March 10, 2017 - Disastro...
The Grizzlies lose again - their 4th straight loss - this time to the Clippers, prompting a lot of very interesting discussion - where are the Grizzlies both in the short-term and in the long-term? Where is the leadership? Why Andrew Harrison, still? ...
Locked on Grizzlies - March 9, 2017 - Fizdale O...
David Fizdale was pointed and defiant in his comments after practice yesterday. He's starting Chandler. Still. He won't accept mediocre play. Hear those comments; hear from Mike Conley and very interesting and candid comments from Marc Gasol, too. It ...
Locked on Grizzlies - March 8, 2017 - Grizzlies...
We continue the fallout from the Brooklyn debacle, talk a bit about JaMychal Green, look at a big day for Dirk, and marvel at the Thunder's unwillingness to pass the Grizzlies in the standings. Give it a listen.
Locked on Grizzlies - March 7, 2017 - What in t...
I must tell you - I didn't think it was possible for the Grizzlies to lose to the Nets at home. And by double-digits? Unthinkable. But here we are. So let's get into it. Hear from David Fizdale, Marc Gasol, Mike Conley, Tony Allen, and exclusively from...
Locked on Grizzlies - March 6, 2017 - Losses at...
The nature of the loss at Dallas was the issue, not necessarily that the Grizzlies lost at all. The loss to Houston was unsurprising, but the capitulation in the second half was alarming. These are the issues I discuss here, including Chandler Parsons'...

Have to thank Devin Booker and Troy Daniels for spicing up an otherwise pretty predictable Grizzlies/Suns matchup. We discuss that, plus a look at lineups.
Locked on Grizzlies - February 27, 2017 - Grizz...
Talking about yet another 1-1 weekend for the Grizzlies. Poor effort and execution in Indy, much better of both in Denver - still, issues remain. Sensational games for Mike Conley and Zach Randolph; more disappointment for Chandler Parsons. Let's talk ...

You graded the Grizzlies, I'll talk about it. Trade deadline came and went, many of the Grizzlies' division opponents got better, the Grizzlies stood firm. Was that the right move? How bad has it gotten for Chandler Parsons? I investigate. Plus, Pacers...
Locked on Grizzlies - February 23, 2017 - TRADE...
There's a lot going on with today's show. I talked with David Fizdale, Mike Conley, and Marc Gasol on the eve of the trade deadline. Really interesting comments from all three - Marc on being 1 year removed from surgery, All-Star defense, and more; a v...
Locked on Grizzlies - February 22, 2017 - Trade...
Talking about Houston's acquisition of Lou WIlliams and what that means for the Grizzlies, about the dilemma facing the Grizzlies at this deadline, and how future cap projections affect Grizzlies' plans.
Locked on Grizzlies - February 21, 2017 - Talki...
SO MUCH TRADE TALK! Matt Hrdlicka from Grizzly Bear Blues joins me...
We are getting deep into it - what will the Grizzlies do? What does the Boogie trade mean for the Grizzlies? What should the Grizzlies be willing to sacrifice for upgrades? And much...
Locked on Grizzlies - February 20, 2017 - Marc'...
Honestly, this pod is mostly just me ranting about Boogie to the Pelicans. I talk about Marc some, too, and you'll hear from Marc after his All-Star Game appearance. But, yeah, Boogie trade.
Locked on Grizzlies - February 17, 2017 - Grizz...
I pull back the curtain on the Grizzlies' offense, taking a look at exactly where the shots come from and what the Grizzlies need to do to improve. You sent in some great proposals, we'll talk about that, too.
Locked on Grizzlies - February 16, 2017 - Grizz...
It was the final game before the All-Star Break, and the Grizzlies played mostly like they were on break already. Not the finest effort and not the finest execution for the Grizzlies - I discuss a tough loss to watch.
Locked on Grizzlies - February 15, 2017 - Talki...
After an unplanned hiatus yesterday, WE ARE BACK! Apologies all around for the interruption. Let's talk Grizzlies/Nets, let's talk Pelicans tonight, let's talk trades, let's just get all in there and do it!
Locked on Grizzlies - February 13, 2017 - Grizz...
It was a historic night in FedExForum, but not for the reasons Grizzlies fans were hoping for. Draymond Green put up an unbelievable line, Warriors cruised, Grizzlies clutched at straws. Marc Gasol and Mike Conley talk about it within, too.
Locked on Grizzlies - February 10, 2017 - Grizz...
Talking Grizzlies/Warriors tonight, you'll hear from Danny Leroux of the Dunc'd On Podcast and Locked on Warriors as we talk about the unique Grizzlies/Warriors matchup, the chemistry of the new Warriors, playoff matchups for the Grizzlies, and much more.
Locked on Grizzlies - February 9, 2017 - Grizzl...
The Grizzlies very predictably beat the Suns 110-91. What was less predictable, though, was the fight at the end. That was plain odd. I'll talk about it. Plus, I talked with Mike Conley and Marc Gasol about their games and the improved defense of late.
Locked on Grizzlies - February 8, 2017 - Marc G...
I had an interesting conversation with Marc Gasol about his role in the Grizzlies' defense, you'll hear that; also, I answer your questions as only I can, in a rambling and possibly nonsensical fashion! You'll love it! Probably!
Locked on Grizzlies - February 7, 2017 - Griz B...
Grizzlies get a big win against a depleted Spurs team; Vince Carter makes a little history, Brandan Wright looks very good in his minutes, you'll hear exclusive sound from them both in this postgame edition of the pod.
Locked on Grizzlies - February 6, 2017 - Grizzl...
The Grizzlies finish with a loss in OKC and a win in Minnesota to close out a 4-2 road trip. We talk about both games and get you set for the late-night nationally-televised big matchup with the Spurs.
Locked on Grizzlies - February 3, 2017 - Grizzl...
We can't stop doing these. It's too much fun talking with Fred Katz about two teams going in opposite directions -- three straight losses for the Thunder, three straight wins for the Grizzlies. We talk at length about the matchup and a few other NBA t...
Locked on Grizzlies - February 1, 2017 - Grizzl...
Another stellar road performance. Nuggets dispatched with ease. The Grizzlies are putting up crazy offensive numbers. CRAZY. Doing stuff they haven't really ever done. And the defense is starting to look a little more like normal. Very interesting tim...
Locked on Grizzlies - February 1, 2017 - Nugget...
A lot to dig into here. I talk Nuggets preview tonight, an interesting look at the best offensive month of Marc Gasol's career (but certainly not the best defensive one), and you'll hear from Chris Wallace and the Dunc'd On guys as they talk about Griz...

Very late postgame edition of Locked on Grizzlies, celebrating Mike Conley's career night, ZBo's TWO dunks, and more, as the Grizzlies hammered, nailed, and coffined the Suns in style.
Locked on Grizzlies - January 30, 2017 - Toney'...
The Grizzlies reach for a vet to fill a desperate need at backup PG, costing them a young player. The Grizzlies lose a game they probably should have won, and won one they probably were expected to lose. There is nothing new under the sun. But let's ta...

Marc's an All-Star for the third time! I discuss the not-at-all-surprising announcement, touch on the other West reserves, and - you're gonna love this - I chat in great, great detail about the Grizzlies defense, schemes, ideas, good, bad, and ugly, w...

Listening to the postgame comments after the Washington game, things don't seem to be going especially well for the Grizzlies. We dig into the reasons why, looking at Chandler Parsons, Marc Gasol, Mike Conley, Troy Daniels, and more. This is a jumbo ed...
Locked on Grizzlies - January 19, 2017 - Grizzl...
Yet again, the Grizzlies lose. Yet again, the Grizzlies go through the motions in a deeply underwhelming 1st half only to try to pull it all out in the 2nd half. What is this team's identity? What kind of team is it? And what needs to change?
Locked on Grizzlies - January 18, 2017 - Grizzl...
Today's Locked on Grizzlies features huge injury news (but not about the Grizzlies), the hints of a trade rumor or two around the league, and a big chat about lineups, especially which wing grouping makes the most sense.
Locked on Grizzlies - January 17, 2017 - Marc G...
In this edition of Locked on Grizzlies, Marc Gasol talks exclusively about being midway through an incredible season, coming back from what was otherwise considered a debilitating foot injury. I also take a look at Marc's season so far from a statisti...
Locked on Grizzlies - January 16, 2017 - MLK Ga...
It was a strange feeling having the MLK Day Game not actually on MLK Day. Stranger still was the Grizzlies performance, a big disappointment after the huge win on Friday night in Houston. Hear from Mike Conley and Marc Gasol on the loss as well.
Locked on Grizzlies - January 13, 2017 - Rocket...
Big show as your weekend approaches - today's show is presented by SeatGeek. We preview the Rockets game, the MLK Day game (or MLK Day Eve game), and take a look at JaMychal Green at the midway point of the season.
Locked on Grizzlies - January 12, 2017 - OKC Be...
We did the preview, so really, we almost had to do the recap. I give you a few of my personal thoughts on the 103-95 loss, then I'm joined by Fred Katz to add the OKC perspective. An interesting, gritty, ugly game deserves a podcast of the same quality.
Locked on Grizzlies - January 11, 2017 - Grizzl...
It's a big game and it deserves a big show - Fred Katz of Locked on Thunder and the Norman Transcript joins me in a special crossover show to talk about Andre Roberson's "sassy" comments, a little Tony Allen love, what each team is doing differently vs...

Locked on Grizzlies - January 9, 2017 - Grizzli...
Two totally different types of games, two wins for the Grizzlies. We talk with Ron Tillery on the Walk n' Talk, plus hear extensive thoughts from Mike Conley.

Busy show to wrap up the week. Peter Edmiston discusses the shocking on/off numbers from Marc Gasol and Mike Conley since Conley's return from his back fracture, All-Star snubs, MLK day honorees, and a bit about the Cavs' acquisition of Kyle Korver.
Locked on Grizzlies - January 5, 2017 - Staples...
Grizzlies lose to the Clippers and look pretty bad in the 2nd half. I'll talk about it and answer several of your questions on this late night/early morning edition of Locked on Grizzlies.

This is a short and not-especially-sweet very late postgame edition of Locked on Grizzlies, after the Grizzlies got their clocks cleaned by the Lakers.

The Grizzlies lost in overtime to the Celtics 112-109, the culmination of an epic second half collapse, and David Fizdale called out his team. The defense went from stifling to hopeless, Isaiah Thomas scored 44 points, including 24 on 7 shots in the 4t...

Marc Gasol is named Western Conference Player of the Week and celebrates, as so many have in the past, by NOT going to Cleveland. Was it the right thing to do? What do the Grizzlies do without him?

Tony Allen caused all sorts of chaos and the Grizzlies got a critical win over a (s)crappy Orlando Magic team. And I wrote a CA piece on Tony's defensive issues earlier in the week. These two things may be linked, I dunno. I talk about it here.
