In spite of the fact that it’s still early in the season, the Memphis Grizzlies have been improving upon their previous performance, which couldn’t come at a better time. They have played the entire season without Jaren Jackson Jr. and Ziaire Williams, while Dillon Brooks was unavailable for the first three games of the season.
However, the idea of “next man up” is still prevalent today.
Who of the role players has left you with the greatest impression so far?
Through the first five games of the season, Santi Aldama has emerged as the most prominent figure in the player development track record of the Grizzlies. As a result, he has been thrust into the role of starting power forward in place of Jaren Jackson Jr. Even while he doesn’t have Jackson’s influence on the game defensively, he’s already showed quite a few wonderful signs of promise early on.
John Konchar is another player who has been called upon to fill a key role, including being selected as a starter for the first game. His willingness to let the ball fly from 3-point range even more while doing “jitty” things has been an important factor in the Grizzlies’ early triumphs.
Through screening, rebounding, and protecting the rim, Steven Adams has continued to be the backbone for this Memphis team that is still very young. These abilities are frequently overlooked, despite the fact that they have a significant bearing on the outcome of basketball games.
Tyus Jones keeps demonstrating why he should be considered a candidate for the position of top backup point guard in basketball. This time around, he is demonstrating a greater level of aggression and poise by getting his own offence going while still keeping his teammates involved in the action.
So, after five games, who has left the most impression on you?
